Beautiful bed & breakfast near St.Peter. Rooms are clean and totally equipped, good position, and low prices!
My room was tiny -- maybe 7 feet by 10 feet. No place to put my suitcase, barely enough room to turn around. Had to close bathroom door to open door into the hall. There are about 6 rooms of this size on each floor, according to the hotel map. The staff was uncooperative when I asked to move.
The room was shabby, too.
The hotel is conveniently located in just 5 minutes walk from Termini station, here converge many urban bus routes and subway lines. On the square before the station there are several bus routes «Hop on hop off».
At the station, there is a grocery store, working until midnight (downstairs) and a nice bar self-service buffet. Called Chao, is on the top floor. Offers a good selection of salads, pastas and meat dishes.
«La Casa di Amy» has rooms in different buildings, unfortunately, we did not get into the main building with a green patio, but our numbers were so good that we did not regret it. Our 2 rooms are located a stone's throw from the main body. In a converted into a mini-hotel apartment of 4 rooms, united by a common hall in which from 8 00 to 10 00 the breakfast is served.
2 rooms overlook the street and a small square with the church, the other 2 - the courtyard. If you got a room with windows facing the street - can be noisy when the car arrives to collect trash cans. In the morning, opening the window will be rewarded with bells chime, which is reached from Santa Maria Maggiore.
The hotel left a most favorable impression of its reasonableness. The room had everything that a traveler may need. Toilet with shower - no complaints,clean perfect, normal hair dryer (not the same as in the pool), a small set of shower accessories (soap, shower gel). Several electric points, and each of them has an adapter-tee that is valuable in the presence of numerous travel gadgets:). Also there is a small fridge and a kettle with a small selection of teas and coffee in the room. Perhaps the only thing missing - is a safe in the room, there is no on the reception too.
Breakfast is very good. There are cheese and ham, and a little chopped fresh vegetables, fruit, yogurt, a delicious cake and croissants, jams, cereal with milk, tea, coffee.
There is also a Wi-Fi in the room free of charge.
If I'm in Rome again , will definitely be back in «La Casa di Amy».
While the normal prices will range about 150Eur, we managed to find a last minute offer for 70Eur. The best money ever spent in Rome!
The name of the hotel may not be the most original, taking its name from the street address. The exterior of the bed & breakfast accommodation is nondescript. You may likely walk right past it, not even knowing that it is the hotel. But the interior of the rooms is fantastic. One of the most comfortable beds I have ever stayed in!! The blinds block all the light, the rooms are spotlessly clean. The staff was extremely helpful to our every request.
The breakfast offered is not included in the room rate. However, if you choose to take the breakfast (~10Eur), you can dine in the common dining room, or opt to have your meal on the private balcony of your room.
The hotel offers free WiFi connection.
Our stay was K. First night was a nightmare because of the buses which started to go at 4am and we could not sleep anymore. First we had a shock, because when we entered the room it was veeeery small, the bathroom was the smallest I have ever seen in my life, to go the the shower you had to step over the WC. In the morning the owner asked us if we were k, I told him about the noise and he changed our room. It was even bigger and the bad smell from the first bathroom was not present anymore. All in all it was good. Great location-2 minutes from Termini station.
We often make the reservations here for our friends and receive the best accommodation at the best price for them. This is for you if you are happy with a clean, 3-star service hotel, basic furnishings, no fancy bar or room service. The rooms are larger than usual - definitely a 5-star location - off Via Veneto and Piazza Barberini. Best value for your money. Let us know if we can help you with a reservation here.
Exit the hotel - walk left to Piazza Barberini, major bus/metro stops.
Exit hotel - walk directly up the street to Via Veneto.
Description from their website:
The hotel has 14 rooms, including 1 Suite with a beautiful terrace and 1 Junior Suite.
All rooms have been newly designed, and are elegant, sober and refined. They are equipped with every comfort including: satellite TV, air conditioning and a safe.
Their deluxe room is spacious - lovely private terrace - jacuzzi hot tub - full bathroom - 5-star location - breakfast available but I would walk directly up the street to a small bar on Via Veneto or down the street to (left as you exit the hotel) to Piazza Barberini.
Less expensive than average for size of rooms and location.
OMG! Thousands and thousands of accomodations to choose from in Rome was daunting. But, I found the ideal place to stay. Things I took into consideration is price (#1), location (#2), Wi-fi - not high speed internet (#3), reviews (#4), type of room (#5) and breakfast provided (#6). Not only was the location important (nice area) but also access to the metro. I was able to determine much of the surroundings using google maps street view and that was extremely helpful. I didn't want to stay in too modern of an accomodation. I wanted the ambience of the hotel and room to feel as though we are staying in Rome and it did. Most of the reviews were positive. The hotel arranged for our pick-up at the airport when we arrived and that was extremely convenient.
So, the location was great. Wi-fi did not work, was disappointed with that. Breakfast was really, really good. Room was smaller than I anticipated but the bathroom facilities were acceptable. Bed was comfortable (king size but actually 2 beds put together). Air conditioning worked well and was quiet. Not a quiet area but I suspect that cannot be helped when you are in Rome. First night was noisy because of trash pick-up and street cleaning but the next few nights were fine.
We were told we could save 10% of the entire cost of stay if we paid cash. So, our intentions were to do that. However, after reviewing the exchange rate and that my credit card company was offering 5% cash back on hotel charges, I decided I would pay by credit card instead. Ooops! That was not acceptable (to my huge surprise)! Once you have made a committment, you're supposed to stick to that committment. I didn't have that much cash, they conceded to allow me to pay as much cash as I could and charged the difference on my credit card.
So, my overall experience was good. I did enjoy my stay at this hotel.
Each room is supposed to have an aquarium (odd - small with a guppy), fruit basket (wasn't there), welcome drink (ice tea or juice) and a tiny bottle of red wine in your room was actually not bad.
Breakfast was great, the bathroom facilities worked well and quiet air conditioning.
This place is a no frills hotel. It is basically a small lobby with rooms on the 4th and 5th floor. The double beds are 2 twins beds put together. It is nice because if you share a bed with someone who moves a lot on their side, your side will stay still. However, if you both lay towards the middle of the bed, the two twins will start to push apart. They share on sheet (so you don't know they are 2 beds unless you see them put it together (which we did) or until you sleep on it). Other than that, the room is fine. They have a fine working heater, a nice bathroom, and they offer you a ticket to have breakfast at a nearby cafe every weekday morning. On the weekends, you eat in their small kitchen (you have to make reservations because it is so small). The best thing about this place is the central location. It is located one block away from Via Nazionale, a quick walk to may of the sites like the Colosseum and the Forum. It is about a 10 minute walk to Termini Station. The price I indicated below is for off peak season. The cost during peak season can be up to $90 a person which is sort of not worth the stay for the amenities.
The Cafe that you have breakfast at on the weekdays has a very friendly staff. The pastries are very delicious. It doesn't seem like you get much, but it is very filling. I have been to Rome before and have had to eat breakfast in a similar fashion, at other cafe's they make you eat and drink standing up. At this cafe, you can sit down and enjoy a leisurely breakfast. The hotel can be loud if you have loud people living near you. On the weekend, one of the workers (possibly the owner) had his baby there and the baby would not stop crying and you could here it in the room. The TV doesn't work well because it doesn't get a very good signal. You get a view of a small street, not noisy. Close to a grocery store and some other small restaurants and a bakery.
This well located hostel is an island of calm in a busy city. It was easy to find and conveniently located. I arrived after a long night train tide and was put at ease by the friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere. I was traveling alone so went the dorm route. I am in my 50s so this is often looked on a bit eccentric at many hostels. Not here the dorm was clean and spacious. The staff was very aware of security and privacy.
The feel was friendly and alternative. The lounge was inviting and internet was available wirelessly and at a communal computer that worked well. The restaurant provided a great breakfast. I would recommend this place to my mom so if you are in Rome check it out.
This hostel/hotel is not a luxury hotel (thank god for that). It is a clean friendly and attractive hostel. I found the staff extremely helpful and plugged in. Atmosphere is hard to quantify but this place has a great relaxed atmosphere. From the delicious healthy food in the café to the décor exuded “relax and make yourself at home we got it covered”.
I used the dorm this time as I was alone. They offer private rooms and I will be getting one of those the next time Barbara visit Rome.
If you want to stay here be sure to make advance arrangements as they tend to fill up.
If you enjoy a more dynamic and casual accommodation I wholeheartedly recommend the Bee Hive.
We didn't want to have to schlep out from Rome before our morning flights, and really didn't want to drive in Rome at all. A helpful (?) travel agent found this particular hotel, which advertised a shuttle service to the airport, and it seemed like a viable and relatively inexpensive option. Ah, well, this is how we learn!
In fact, the Hotel Riviera was nearly impossible to find. After more than an hour of driving around Fiumicino (and even consulting the local police), we finally located it and were able to check in. Our room had no working A/C on a day when the temperatures had soared and humidity was high. Fortunately, another room was available and the climate control there worked well. Then we discovered that the shuttle wasn't free, and didn't operate at especially convenient times. There was only one computer, which was constantly busy with people trying to check-in on-line. And I'm fairly sure that breakfast consisted of donuts...not even a piece of fruit.
But having said all of that, very early on the morning of our departure, I walked the three blocks to the beach and was completely entranced by the sea wall, through which waves would crash and foam onto a semi-circular area of sand. This format was repeated up and down the strand, so obviously it is one of the ways Italians enjoy their seashore without the dangers of riptides or the erosion from all the wave action. I would have LOVED to have surfed there, but I only had time to wade for a few minutes.
Proximity to the beach. And others seem to like it, so perhaps I was just tired and cranky.
We have rented an Apartment for a week through a company named RENTAL IN ROME. I am sorry to say that this was an unmitigated disaster. We were two full days without water, but at the same time they were leaks falling all over the bathroom and the kitchen. They promises us to reduce a part of our bill for the disturbance but, of course, they never did!!
The apartment was quite different from the images they presented in their web, dirty, and unconfortable. Finally, we have been trying for two weeks to obtain a bill for our payment but they do not provide any answer. So my conclusion is that we should recommend NOT TO RENT TO "RENTAL IN ROME"
The apartment was aparantly well situated in the historic center, but lacks of any facility and views are only fo roofs and antennas
This is an old building dating back to early 1900s. The best thing to do in Rome is take off by foot and explore. There is so much to see and do. Go out and enjoy the locals. The baroque churches are a must see as well as the beautiful gardens and fountains.
The open top bus tours has a stop on the Via Veneto at the end of our road, which is very convenient.
The hotel looks weird, retro, old fashioned and with excessive deco, but it's located just few km from Fiumicino Airport (Rome) and has good rates.
If you don't mind about the ambience it could be a good choice for the night before the flight.
They don't accept credit cards
Very quite street not far from Piaza Republica and Termini. Room clean and nice. Breakfast is very basic so don't get your hopes high.
Center but not too much, good restuarant walking distance.
Stayed for three nights in November 2009. This hotel is near the train station and from the outside looks very unprepossessing. In fact, it shares a building with several other budget hotels and our room was actually in a building across the street. However, after this unpromising beginning, the room was very nice - well decorated, nice bathroom, comfortable beds - much better than expected in this price range. I would recommend skipping the breakfast though - there are far more tasty alternatives to be found in the cafes nearby.
