  • It's not as bad as you can read in some reviews.

    The hotel was booked before we even saw this comments about it but I must say I felt relieved when I arrived there.
    The walls and everything were impeccable and we never had any kind of troubles with lights, dirty things and with anything in the bathroom.

    Everyday there were new towels and new shampoos if we used what they left there before.
    The only con in the bathroom was that the shower had no curtain which makes the water go everywhere.

    The bed was very clean and everything went smoothly. No trouble with noises at night and the bed was comfortable and good (and we stayed four nights).

    The only "con" that we saw was the breakfast. It's kinda poor but if you don't usually eat much it's okay, if not maybe you should go to a market near by and buy something that won't cost much. Anyway, the breakfast is included so you can always have coffee or milk and even a little sweet croissant.

    The staff they don't always understand english at first but if you have a little patience I'm sure everything will be ok. We talked in english and when there was a problem it's just a matter of talking slower. They are very helpful and we asked for a private car to get us to the airport in the middle of the night and there was no problem with it. The staff arranged everything (they even tell you the price in advance) and the car was at the hotel door at the time we asked.

    The lift is normal. People complained before about it but we never had problems with it and we used it for the whole stay. It's small but it's normal if we think about the kind of building where the hotel is.

    Around the hotel, during the day you can easily walk with no problem but at night is always "weird". We always arrived at the hotel around 5pm maximum because it was getting darker and only left during night to have dinner.
    About that I would say to go to one of the restaurants of the street, the first one when you leave the hotel and turn to right. The food is very good, affordable and plus, we never got a check with the "mandatory tipping" that some restaurants from Rome include.

    This hotel is great because it's near Termini Station and you always have the subway to go anywhere and to the Colosseum you can even walk if it's good weather :)

    If what you want is to walk around Rome and have some place nice to stay at night and that it's not very expensive I would say this is a good choice. I would stay from 9pm until early next morning and had no complaints about whatsoever...

    I stayed there for 4 nights during February 2013.

    Directions: It's very near the Termini Station.

  • The worst hotel I've ever been

    by

    It was a terrible experience! There was no hot water in the whole hotel! And our bathroom was out of use. Can you imagine? The room was very-very old and dirty. Maybe the only nice thing of this hotel is its new reception. But all the rest is so bad!

    Directions: Termini station

    Adequate hotel near Roma Termini

    by

    I stayed here with a group of 12 (6 double rooms) for 5 nights in October 2007.
    Prices are unclear: most expensive is € 155 per double room but prices change per month. I did not get a pricelist when I asked.

    All in all, I was quite happy to be staying there 5 nights. But we definitely had the best room of the 6. There were some light complaints within our group and a general feeling of it not being up to par. Read another review on VT here

    Location: so near Roma Termini (train, bus, metro), it was very easy to get to every sight in town. The neighbourhood has many Asian shops. I liked it actually. In the street, Via Turati, we tried 4 of the 5 restaurants within 50 metres. Those will be described in the Restaurant tips.

    You can read some more reviews here.

    Unique Quality: Our room 219 is at the back, quieter than at the front and certainly larger than most other rooms. Although the word 'spacious' does not come to mind, it is adequate. Window looks over a patio with potted palms but the patio itself is unused and messy.

    The bathroom was fine, clean, spacious and good towels. There's a hairdryer, tv, mini-bar with room for your own stuff. Our bed was good. But that's about all that makes it a 3-star hotel.
    Most of the staff speaks English.

    Breakfast is of medium quality and bread not always very fresh: juices, coffee, tea, white buns, croissants, jam, honey, yoghurt, cornflakes. Nothing more. Advice: buy some prosciutto and cheese and bring them to breakfast. The breakfast room is small. Less than 20 places set, for the whole hotel. There's a conference room/disco at the back but it isn't used for breakfast space.

    As we occupied 6 rooms for 5 nights, I had ample information about the other rooms.

    There are 6 floors. Floor 4 is a backpacker hotel with the inevitable noise late at night. As I read in reviews on other websites, there was evidence of youngsters hanging about on the stairs, cigarette butts, probably some weed use as well. I was personally not bothered by it but it's a strange combination to be in a 3-star hotel with a rundown backpacker floor in the middle of it.

    Floors 2, 3, 5 and 6 have normal rooms. There's a tiny elevator.
    Try for the lower floors because the higher floors often had trouble with warm water or hardly any pressure at all.

    Apart from the entrance, the hotel is in bad need of renovation. The staircases are in bad repair. Not unsafe but uneven and missing bits of barrister and floor covering.

    Directions: From station Roma Termini a 5 minute walk: leave from the side entrance, and take the first left (Via Filippo Turati), then walk to the next corner.

Via Krupp

by iandsmith

Via Krupp connects the area of the Charterhouse and the Gardens of Augustus with Marina Piccola, once linked to the town exclusively by way of Via Mulo.
Commissioned by the German industrialist, Friedrich Alfred Krupp, the pathway was built in the early 1900’s, overcoming a difference in height of approximately 100 meters,
Via Krupp was designed and realized by the engineer Emilio Mayer, who cut through the rock almost to the sea, creating a series of hairpin bends set so close together they appear almost to overlap.
Observing the path from on high or walking along the winding route, one is inevitably struck by such an incredible feat of engineering and artistic genius, made all the more captivating by the typically Mediterranean vegetation which spontaneously grows along the path.
Along Via Krupp there is a small gate marking the way to the Grotta di Fra’Felice, where Krupp built his villa and, a little further on, a steep and crumbling pathway which leads to the Grotta dell’Arsenale, resting four meters above sea level. A favorite nudist spot, the more adventurous enjoy swimming here, despite the almost constant danger of falling rocks.
Via Krupp has been recently repaired and the rock face above the road is now fairly secure, as noted by the wire strung across the cliff. It's extraordinary when you start to dig into things. One fascinating fact upon another creates a wonderful fabric for life's tapestry that makes for wonderful viewing.
Friedrich Alfred Krupp was a German industrialist, owner of the Krupp steel works, who had earned himself the nickname “cannon man”.
It is believed that he was, at the time, the richest man in the whole of Germany.
For a considerable period of time he resided at the Hotel Quisisana. Somewhat surprisingly, he never actually purchased a property for himself on island of Capri.
His presence on the island brought many benefits to Capri, he commissioned the building of the Via Krupp pathway and the Gardens of Augustus. He owned the Grotta di Fra' Felice.
He nurtured a great interest in marine biology and collaborated with the Zoological Department of Naples in the discovery and study of new forms of plankton.
He financed the staging of two major nature expeditions in the waters of Capri and provided two boats for the purpose: the Maya and the Puritan.
Whilst in Capri, Krupp was the protagonist of a homosexuality scandal, which had strong repercussions in Germany.
How amazing that for all his softness and generosity on one side, the industry that funded him was partly responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths.
The trail is easy, despite its spectacular route, and the views exceed your expectations, whether looking towards the Marina Piccola or back to the Faraglioni (pic 3).

Impressive impressions

by ATLC

We were lucky to arrive very early and our flight back was in the evening so we had 6 full days of sightseeing.

It will take a while to make this page so here's a short impression.

Day 1.
After check in at Hotel Quisisana (very near Roma Termini station):
Churches: S. Maria Maggiore, San Pietro in Vincoli (churches), walk to the Colosseum and visit S. Clemente, the church built on top of another church, built on top of a Roman house.
Day 2.
Piazza del Populo, S. Maria del Populo (church), Via del Corso, Mausoleum of Emperor August, Ara Pacis, the Valentino exhibit, coffee at Caffe Greco, Piazza di Spagna, Trevi fountain, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, S Maria sopra Minerva, Largo Argentina
Day 3.
Visit Ostia Antica, walk around the neighbourhood of the hotel, local shops, supermarket.

Vatican
Day 5.
Colosseum, Palantine, Forum Romanum, icecream at Giovanno Freddi
Day 6.
