How easy is it to find a hotel on arrival?

by travelmama

Hi
We may now be arriving without hotel reservations

We will only be in Rome for 1-2days then onto Sicily.

Is it easy to find/book inexpensive hotel rooms (5 adults)? If so can it be done at the airport?

I really don't recommend it: while I have a vague memory of a hotel booking contact "wall" this is for business-type hotels, not cheap ones! Also, I can't tell from "5 adults" but it sounds as though you may need 3-5 rooms, it would really be a better idea to identify a hotel online before you leave, e.g. from http://www.rome.info/hotels/prefered/. This one is near Termini station which is where you arrive on the train from Fiumicino (assuming this is the airport you are arriving at): http://www.hotelmarsala.com/hotel_marsala_ing/hotel_marsala_inglese.asp
If you get as far as Termini without having found a hotel I'd recommend you go to this place for hotel bookings: http://www.enjoyrome.com/ (maybe leaving your luggage at the station until you know where you are going, or perhaps some of you can stay with it while the others go to book the hotel).

I'm a big travel by the seat of my pants person, but if you know which days you'll be there, do yourself a favor and reserve before you go. You don't have a lot of time. Don't waste what you have looking for rooms.

It's not a good idea, to be honest, especially as you wiill presumably be looking for 2+ rooms. You would do better to use a site such as www.venere.com which will search for availability on your dates. You can reserve online instantly with most hotels and be sure of having somewhere reasonable to stay when you arrive.

As is the case with all popular European tourist destinations, very few Rome hotels are what I would call 'inexpensive'. Those that are reasonably-priced are less likely to have availability 'on-spec', as they quickly get booked up online.

Best to book something before you arrive, imo.

I have travelled with a group requiring i double and 2 single rooms and found it quite difficult in many cities in Europe to find accommodation for all of us on spec. If venere.com has nothing suitable, try bookings.com, they usually have a wider range of choices and they are every bit as reliable as venere. In answer to your original question, yes there is a facility for phoning through to hotels at Fiumicino Airport and even though it does as a general rule, only show four star+ hotels, you can sometimes get a late minute bargain or two. With 5 adults, however, I would not be game to chance it. I like to know that I have somewhere to sleep well in advance of the date.

Travel Tips for Rome

The Forum

by CandS

If you get the chance then wander around the Forum...

We were lucky enough to catch a free tour at the entrance to the Forum...it went for ages but it was great!! The tour was fun and informative, better than some we had to pay for during our trip...

Goethe's Hotel

by challenger

During Goethe’s first stay in Rome from October 29, 1786 - February 21, 1787, he stayed in the Albergo dell’Orso at the corner of Via di Monte Brianzo and Via dell’Orso. Forget about Lonely Planet, Let’s Go or any of the other modern travel books. You’d still be hard pressed to find a better guide for Italy than Goethe’s own “Italian Journey”. His insights into Italian art and architecture are absolutely amazing and will make you feel very humble when you realise that – despite living in the “information” age – you will more likely than not not even get close to the deep wisdom and appreciation he managed to get out of his visit. We’re still cultural Barbarians in comparison to his genius.

Night train from Rome to Venice

by azz8206

I did an overnight train from Rome to Venice and it was a horrible experience. First of all the trains are packed and people are standing in the middle of the hallways and to find and get through the throng of people on the train is near impossible. I had to stand in the smelly hallway of the train for 3 hrs before I found my sleeper room. Not a very good experience and I will never travel by train at night again. One way you can avoid all the hassle of going through the crowd is look for your car number on your ticket and then stand in front of the area the car is supposed to stop at and embark there.

Perhaps the Best Pizza in Rome

by ExTaquero about Pizzeria Fiametta

The old man in the white T-shirt is the hardest working man in Rome. He's there day and night making one pizza after another, each one a masterpiece. Fantastic. Any pizza with a single (or maybe two) toppings. Don't over do it.

Along the Via Appia Antica
