    The location is very good as it is only a few minutes walk from Termini station.
    The building is quite old and the lift is small and old that it can just fit in two persons with luggages. It happened once the lift was being held by someone and we have to walked up to the 5th floor at 10 pm.
    The room we stayed is facing the main road so it is very noisy, we could hear the traffic noise through out the night even with the window closed.
    The staff at the reception counter are friendly in general except one guy (his name is Franco). He is a bit rude and snobby. He got impatient after we asked a few questions when we checked in. He even refused to help when we complained about a leaking shower the next day.
    The price we paid seems too high even though it is closed to the station.

    Unique Quality: The breakfast is good and the lady attending the kitchen provides very good service.

I used and found it usefule. In Italy, we stayed at Hostel Pop Inn, 1 minute from Termini, in 20 Euros (dorms) with a basic breakfast. If you would like to go with a hostel then booking through a portal like I mentioned is more reliable. always give a lot of attention to reviews and ratings. is another good website....

thank you!

by carey19811123

Google 'convents in Rome'. Good selection of choices available.

Any one stayed at hotel mirage or scott house in rome?

by flapjack


Considering staying at hotel mirage or scott house.
Please could you tell me your experience, if good area and if within walking distance to tourist sites?

Re: Any one stayed at hotel mirage or scott house in rome?

"The Hotel Mirage is next to the "Stazione Termini", the "Colosseo", the "Foro Romano" and Via Veneto." (from the hotel's website)

Well, yes to Termini, but the Colosseo and the Foro Romano are about 1.5 kilometers away. Closer attractions are Santa Maria Maggiore, the Baths of Diocletian, Piazza Esedra (oops, showing my monarchist tendencies - Piazza della Repubblica), etc.

"Hotel Scott House is conveniently located at 50 metres from Termini central station and 50 metres from St. Mary Major Cathedral." (from the hotel's website)

Considering that the train station and Santa Maria Maggiore are something like 400 meters apart, this seems mathematically improbable.

Both of these hotels are on the eastern side of the old Imperial City. They will be "close" to some things and not so close to others - the Vatican, for example, is a good distance away.

However, Rome has a very good integrated transit system, both bus and Metro, and it is a world class city when it comes to just walking. From the north gate to one of the south gates is only 6.5 kilometers (about 4 miles), which you could walk in less than 1.5 hours, if you didn't stop to see anything (not likely ;-) ). While staying in the Termini area is not the "center" of town, it is sufficiently close to not handicap you, either. And, since there are so many hotels near the train station, the competition helps keep the prices down.

I just wish that places would not overhype their locations...1.5 kilometers away is not "next" to the Colosseo.

If it helps, Scott House is closer (by a few hundred meters) to the center.

Glad to know there are more of us out there who continue to call Piazza Repubblica by its real name.

I don't think the reviews are that bad, to be honest. You get what you pay for.

Look at Their reviews are honest (they email you after your stay) and the site is entirely reliable. The most recent review for Scott House is from this month (see link below). It's pointless looking at reviews from more than a year ago, as things change so quickly in the hotel trade (eapecially in popular tourist places).

Re: hotel in rome from 12 'till 14 oct

by Sandrinita

Personally, I would recommend the Hotel Sant'Anselmo on the Aventino hill. I believe it is a 3 star hotel. It has a garden where you can have breakfast. It is in a very special environment. The Aventino is very quiet and green, with a wonderful view of the city from the Orange garden... The only drawback is for public transportation. You have to take a cab to come back at night.

Re: hotel in rome from 12 'till 14 oct

by Maryimelda

If you want a nice little hotel in the city centre not far from Termini and Republicca, try the Hotel Italia, on the via Venezia off Via Nazionale It is clean comfortable, and staffed by extremely helpful staff who speak excellent English. It is located in close proximity to everything with plenty of transport close by. We paid 90 euro per room per night there in June this year. The price includes a pretty good breakfast as well.

Travel Tips for Rome

See the Pope

by rita_simoes

You can't go to Rome and not see the Pope, at least that's what they say here in Portugal!

The first time I went to Rome, it was August and the Pope had left to his summer residence, in Castel Gandolfo, so I didn't get the chance to see him.

Even though I'm not a very religious person, being at Saint Peter's square and entering the basilica does make me feel something. And so did seeing the Pope at the sunday Angelus, and all the people gathered in the square.

It happens at noon, every Sunday (except when he is in Castel Gandolfo) and there are big screens focusing the tiny window where he stands. Don't get there too late, though - it lasts only about 10 minutes.

The other possibility, which I didn't have time to do yet, is to attend the mess during the week - but you need to get the tickets before.

Circus Maximus

by TRimer

The Circus Maximus was a track used primarily for horse-racing. Occasionally it was used on occasion for hunts or mock battles (picture a scene from the Gladiator). It had 300,000 seats and was famous throughout the ancient world. The Circus measured 600 with 200 meters and had a capacity of 320,000 spectators who watched the chariot races that were held there.

Train from Airport FCO to Centre Roma...

by Dutch1980

If you land on Roma at The airport of Fiumicino don't take all the taxi's that stand outside or that are offered to you.

Just follow the train signs (or ask were the train is) and take the train to Rome Central Station. It cost less then 10 Euro and it takes you within half an Hour to the Centre.

The trains are very good and clean.

Great atmosphere

by jmhenry1123 about La Maddalena

Rustic Italian restaurant steps away from the Pantheon.

The food is delicious. The wine was superb. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. Definitely got la dolce vita treatment. The menu probably changes frequently but we had an insalata of duck breast and grapefruit slices with balsamic vinegar di modena.

I had a veal entree.

The greatest church on earth

by meteorologist1

very magnificient, see Michelangelo's Pieta on the right side as you enter St.Peter's. Climb up to the top of the church to get a breathtaking view of Rome. You can either walk or take the elevator for two stories, but everyone must take the stairs to the very top. The elders be advised. The climb is very exhausting, but it is worth it.
