  • Great Location ...but some problems


    First of all, the main selling point has to be the location - just 20 minutes walk from the Vatican (just over Tiber on Vatican side) and also 15-20 minutes to Piazza Novona, Pantheon, and Spanish Steps.

    I got my room at a bargain price too.

    Now the problems...
    I stayed in a nice large room in an annexe building. Unfortunately there was no hot water! I complained and told something would be done;it wasn't. I had to change room. This time it was in the main hotel building - but the room was quite small. Bathroom was tiny. Reading other reviews it looks like there is a constant problem with lack of hot water in the annexe building. I did get a discount for the cold showers I experienced.

    Breakfast was quite good with plenty of choice eg croissants, cheese, ham, ceraal, sausages, scrambled eggs etc.

    Unique Quality: Good location, value and breakfast. But lack of hot water in annexe building.

    You should rightly expect more


    Well we know about getting what you pay for and this for Rome, out of season in August, was one of the less expensive options. That said, we always book well in advance and the same rooms were decidedly less budget nearer the time.

    2 out of 5 maybe a little harsh then, the cleaners were trying hard and kept the slightly worn fabric very presentable. But problems with the phone not working were just not addressed by a rather offhand main front desk, other issues with the bathroom similarly problematic and I had to repair the hair drier myself!

    2 from 5 maybe a little harshbut a pity that the man on recertion thinks he is above being helpful - the self deprecating humour and friendliness of cleaners and the handy man, who conceded "... Nothing in this hotel really works..!.." would serve them better.

    If you really need to do cheap then it's not a total disaster - just be sure you get it damn cheap! We won't be staying again as a couple, I could 'slum it' here myself I suppose.........

    Unique Quality: Good location for the seasoned Rome visitor ( our seventh visit in ten years) perhaps a little out of the way for first or second timers still finding their way from Spagna to Colosseo. We liked the location because it was OK for buses at Piaza Cavour, and right on the Tevere for the August nights in Castel Sant Angelo

    Directions: Prati, behind the Tribunale, between the Tevere and Piazza Cavour

Beer in Rome

by Soili

Iread an article about beers in Rome.There were 5 bars listed in the article. What is your own special place for having a beer in Rome?
There is a large annual beer festival going on here in Finland and for that reason there was this article with the information about the bars.I'm hopefully travelling to Rome later this year,and I will be with people who would like to have a special place for their beer.(I'm sure of it..)
I'd like to get some quality beer as a souvenir for my brother who has been working for decades with selling beer and wine.I'm only interested in information about small local breweries.
You can write an email to me here on VT if you have any address information.
regards from Finland

Re: Beer in Rome

by Soili

Hey,that aricle (last Thursda,Hesari) was all about the fact that Itlay isn't considered a typical beer country. And that's why they seem to be promoting Italian beer at BeerFestival.
My brother has promised to give me a list of wines I could get and he will tell me some details about wines in Lazio area (the place that has always produced wine for Rome.)
But not all wine is for him...:)

Re: Beer in Rome

by marielexoteria

When and where is the beer festival?
The only Italian beer I've drunk is called Peroni, but I did that here.

Re: Beer in Rome

by leics

There is a list of microbreweries/brewpubd in the Lazio region here:

In Italian, but easy to work out. There are some in Rome.

Re: Beer in Rome

by Soili

Thank you for the replies.
-Mariel:the beer festival is in Helsinki.:)
- leics: I will go and check the site.I'd like to surprise some of my colleagues about beer.
I just hope the trip is still going to be ok,as I haven't heard anything about it.I will hear soon,though.

Re: Beer in Rome

by leics

I think you will find one or two brewpubs in rome you can (hopefully) visit on that link.



Re: Beer in Rome

by cgf

I know for sure there is a [little] good tradition of beer in Italy, I met also people who does it homemade.
Said that I add I'm sure there are much more then 5 'birrerie' in Rome, just have a look once there. Birreria is a place where you mainly or only drink beer form many places of the world.
Sure, there are not large beer festivals there, although there are many small ones anywhere during summer and you always find more Italians at Oktoberfest year by year.

Why beer is not so popular in Italy? maybe because it's not worth to spend money for beer when [already good] wine is cheaper!
btw *these days* there is VinItaly in Verona


btw I checked Argentina, beside Quilmes and Brahma (this is Brazilian) are found anywhere, people there prefere wine, maybe for the same reason? [already good] wine is cheaper then beer....

Re: Beer in Rome

by chazzarelli

I'd suggest heading over to Campo de' Fiori at night, as there are plenty of bars/pubs to goto around the area, and is usually packed with people having drinks after night fall.

Travel Tips for Rome

One of the bridges

by CdnJane

Not sure if this a favourite thing, but I did enjoy walking across the bridges and taking pictures of the other bridges. Ok... so not too original... but couldn't remember what else to say about this picture. Couldn't tell you the name of it, or the exact location... just that it was not too far from the Vatican and St Peter's.

The School of Athens, by...

by acemj

The School of Athens, by Raphael is my favorite painting. The large fresco hangs in the Stanza della Segnatura in the Vatican. As you walk through the museum, you approach Raphael's Rooms just before entering the Sistine Chapel.
In the painting, Raphael portrays some of the great thinkers and philosophers of all-time. The central figures are Plato on the left and Aristotle on the right and Raphael himself is pictured on the right side facing the viewer.

by AnnamariaC. about Via Dei Condotti

You can find Gucci,Ferragamo famous for his scarfs and shoes,Prada, Armani...

More on the Metro

by monorailgold

Using the metro is easy. With just a few precautions, this can be a great time and foot saver for anyone. (see my metro tip for some precautions)..
You should get a map of the metro system to have a general knowledge of the stops. There are only two lines in the whole system but they cover a lot of territory. If you have any kind of guidebook, they will usually have a route of the metro system. If you don't have a guidebook, stop by the tourist information kiosk when you get to Rome. These maps are very helpful for cutting down travel time. They will show you where the various metro stops are and which line to take.
Inside the metro stations there are maps also. Be sure to read these maps and get on the correct train. They go in both directions, so you might end up going away from your target if you are not careful. Just read the overhead signs and the wall maps and you'll be fine.
Buy your ticket from a magazine vendor or from inside the staion. Make sure you validate it before you get on the train. As you go thru the turnstile, slip your ticket in the slot. It will spit out on the other side. That's all there is to it. If you buy an individual ticket it is good for 70 minutes or one train ride. (One train ride includes transfers as long as you don't go back out thru the turnstiles) Once you get off the train you need to buy another ticket. They do sell multi-day tickets if you will use the metro a lot.
When you exit the train, look at the signs. These will tell you which road you will exit onto. Most of the time, you have a choice which road to go onto and won't have to cross the street if you take the correct staircase up to the street level. (Don't get me started on crossing the street).

Casino del Lago - Cafe by the Lake Villa Borghese
