Would like advise / review on Mövenpick Hotel Central Park

by daniel_cw_cheung

I am going to stay in Rome for 3 days in June and in search for some reasonable hotels with good access to attractions and communications. I come across this hotel but not sure if it is good or not. Can someone give me advise or reeview on this? Better still, if you can give me other recommendations I will be really grateful!.

Regards.

Monte Mario is a hill on the north side of Rome. The Cavalieri Hilton which is on Monte Mario is famous for its views of Rome; unfortunately, I have been to the Hilton but not your hotel.

This area is outside the city center - you are in Rome, but not near the sites.

You are about 200 meters from the Pineta Sacchetti train station for an urban rail line that runs south towards the center. If you stay on the train, you will probably loop around west of the center, then along to south side to Trastevere, Ostisense, Tuscolana, and maybe Termini (I would have to look this up). However, if you get off at Valle Aurelia (maybe the third stop south of your hotel), you could switch to the red Metro line, which runs by the Vatican all the way over to Termini (and beyond).

So, the lesson is that you probably aren't going to walk to the sites, but will need some mode of transportation to get closer to the center (the Hilton has a shuttle, but I didn't see one at http://www.moevenpick-hotels.com/hotels/Rome/ - but you might look).

(p.s. the Hilton is also one of the more expensive hotels in Rome, so don't go running over there unless money is no object ;-) )...

In such case, is there any recommendation that anyone can recommend some nice and reasonably priced hotels that are along the subway lines and also close to the attractions?

People here would probabaly advise you to (1) look at people's tips here on hotels, and (2) look at www.venere.com, which is a reputable website for hotels (with reviews).

Having lived in Rome, I did not stay in hotels, so I wouldn't be of much help...but many VTers have posted their thoughts in the Rome forum (search the Rome forum for "hotel", and see what you get)...

I am not a big Rome subway fan and I would not make hotel decisions based upon how close they are to a metro stop. Other midprices hotels we like are the Hotel Portghese just N of Piazza Navona and Hotel Lancelot by the Colosseum. Karl

It is a business hotel very far from the city center. I would stay close to all the major sights and enjoy the real Rome atmosphere.
I do like the Okapi Rooms www.okapirooms.it!! Simple but nice and great location. A double room at Euro 120 per night is not bad in Rome during high season. No breakfast is served.

As always, I recommend the Hotel Italia on Via Venezia just off Via Nazionale. Central to everything, reasonably priced (breakfast is included), very efficient staff all of whom speak excellent English. You can walk to just about all the attractions from here. Close to restaurants and shopping and Metro stations. See my tip on my Italy page.

Travel Tips for Rome

Try to notice even more things...

by barcodex

Try to notice even more things than your guide will be able to point your attention at. You can miss some really interesting things. We have noticed this Capitol wolverine just on a way down the hill to Trayan Forums. Guide was very quick to run downstairs, tourist group tried to catch her, but we found a second to look at this sculpture and take a picture of it

Sincere People Only

by OttoMarzo

If you're planning to go to Rome with your partner or kids or both, you're probably been told to go to the "Bocca della Verità". This is a marble face with an open mouth. The legend says that you have to put your hand inside its mouth and say something important. If you are lying, your hand will be bit off! So, guys, pay attention! If you're not been faithful to your partner try to find any reasonable excuse to skip it! To reach it, subway line B Circo Massimo stop, walk towards the river, then just ask, everyone knows where it is... expecially one-hand-people...

Bus

by Janani

We did most of our sightseeing around Rome on foot but used the buses to cover any longer journeys around the city, such as travelling with our cases between Termini Station and our hotel, which was in the area near the Vatican museums. The tickets could be bought at newsagents around the city and needed to be stamped on entering the bus to validate them.

The stops were labelled with clear details of all the stops covered by buses calling there, how long it should take to reach each one and the approximate frequency of each service.

The buses seemed quite busy but had plenty of room for standing passengers, when all the seats were full and we had no trouble finding space for our small suitcases. One very useful feature of the buses, which I would love to see in the U.K., was a screen displaying the name of the next stop, so that passengers would know in good time when they were approaching the stop they wanted. There are maps available on the ATAC website listed, which show the buses and other connecting public transport services.

Homestyle Italian that's worth the entire trip!

by Lornabug about Trattoria Pizzeria A. Spinoza

I really don't know where to begin with this place. The bruschetta!!! The lasagne!!! The tiramisu!!! The Italian matriarch chef with a pasta-stained tablecloth tied around her bulbous, heaven-sent belly yelling to us stupid Americans in Italian what she had made because that's what we were eating!!! "Non spaghetti! Mangiate il lasagne!" "No you can't have 1 bruschetta! You'll have 4!" Thank god allmighty she told us what to do. Oh my gosh I can barely write about it without getting a little shaky, wondering how much the flights to Italy are right now.

We came here after the long requisite day at the Vatican and came back the next day after seeing the Pope and even caught a cab here on our last night to get one last fix. But it was closed! I guess that's when they cook for the family, especially since it was Sunday night. Oh, those lucky lucky fools.

Do not go here without getting the bruschetta with artichokes. In fact, do not go to Rome without getting it.

This place is right of San Pietro and you can sit outside where the kind husband of the chef will make sure you put your bags out of the way of gypsies or you can sit inside at the long, cluttered family style tables where all the Italians are. So wonderful! The bruschetta: delicious garlicky thick toast, beautiful butter lettuce and more, absolutely perfect tomatoes, large juicy buffalo mozzarella, and huge Roman marinated artichokes dressed in a to-die-for blend of olive oil and herbs.

The lasagne: like your Italian mother never made with plenty of parmesan.

The tiramisu: rich, dripping with fresh marscapone and sprinkled with chocolate, tastes like heaven. Shove it down no matter what!

Tour Inside Santa Maria Sopra Minerva

by no1birdlady

Looking at the conservative outside of this church, you would never imagine how beautiful the inside of it is. The vaulted ceiling is a beautiful blue with ornate gold and white decoratons. It is one of the few Gothic buildings in Rome. The name is because it was built on the ancient ruins of a Temple of Minerva. Chapels line the main cathedral area. In here is the famous sculpture of RISEN CHRIST started by Michelangelo but finished by Raffaele da Montelupo in 1521. There is also a bust by Bernini.
