ROME

by JDMARCH

A lot of tours state you must be within the Aurelian Walls, we are staying at the Pinewood hotel, Is this close? Thanks J.D.March

Hi

I'm not familiar with the area but the hotel's website does state it's within 5 minute walk to a metro stop. I would prefer to be on the other side of the Tiber, north of the Colloseum but if you got a good deal with this hotel I don't think it would be too out of the way.

JD,
The Aurelian Walls (19 km long) were built in the III century AD and could include all the 7 hills of Rome. The Pinewood hotel (www.romehotelpinewood.com) is located in the north-west of Rome and it is not central at all, far away from the Aurelian Walls. The Vatican would be the closest main sight and you still need a 10-15 minutes taxi ride or use public transportation (bus+metro).
You can use www.mappy.com to get a better idea about the hotel location (the name of the street is Via della Pineta Sacchetti).
I would suggest to get a simple accommodation but with very good location. An option might be the Okapi Rooms (www.okapirooms.it) where they charge Euro 120 for a double and Euro 140 for a triple (room only, no breakfast).
You will find many other accammodation tips by reading Rome travel pages in this same forum.

I wish you all the best!!
Regards,
Antonio

1st Time in Rome

by nitrofan

I am taking my girlfriend on our first trip to Rome in May, can anyone recommend some hotels please. I give some idea of my “Ideal” requirements I don’t know if I am asking the earth!

Here we go!
Hotel should be near to the sights (or near good public transport)

It would be nice if the Hotel is in an area where it is nice to walk about in the evening get dinner etc.

Price Range 140 Euros per night for 2 people this is my maximum, I assume rooms are priced by the room not the number of people?)

A bar in the hotel (Would be nice!)

Air conditioned Rooms (Would be nice!)

A Swimming pool (Would be lovely but its not essential)

I am flying into Ciampino (Ryan air no expenses spared!) and assume I will be getting to town by coach or train, any recommendations welcome?

Thanks guys

Geoff,
Have a look to the accommodation tips you find on Virtual Tourist Rome Travel Pages. I can suggest the Okapi Rooms (www.okapirooms.it) that is a new, very simple guest house located just around the corner from Piazza del Popolo and 10 minutes walk from the Spanish Steps. They charge 120 euro per night for room only. All rooms have A/C and TV set but there is no bar or swimming pool.
May is very busy here in Rome so you better make all arrangements asap, especially flights and accommodation.

I suggest you have a look at www.venere.com, which many of us on VT use regularly. It lists all accommodation in Rome (you can sort by area and price), and its reviews are honest (they send a questionnaire a week or so after your stay). They are a reliable site to use for booking, and take no fee from you.

As for Ciampino to Rome, I'd use (and have done) the Terravision coach service which links with the Ryanair flights. Best to book online, to be sure of a seat. They drop off and pick up at Roma termini, which is extremely convenient for getting to hotels via bus/tram or metro (or on foor, if you stay in the Termini area as I tend to do!).

You may want to consider Hotel Lancelot by the Colosseum. There is not a pool, but hotel is nice, excellent morning breakfast. You can check it out on venere and tripadvisor. Karl

accomodation

by lanheses

Hi guys!
I have been looking at some accomodation in Rome and was wondering what part of Rome is the most convenient place to look for hotels that is in walking distance to all the main attractions? Thanks in advance for your help! :)

Re: accomodation

by Moshe39

I visited Rome for 10 days, and I don't think that getting a hotel near the center is wise, it certainly is very expensive. The better way to do it would be to take a hotel, say Arcadia Hotel,( www.hotelarcadiaroma.it )which is about 45 minutes by bus and metro to Termini. I was there, found the prices acceptable. Getting there, is easy, travel to the end of the metro line, and then a bus for 4 stations, right by the hotel. If you look in the center of town, well, around the Termini isn't a smart place to walk at night, etc. If you have any questions contact me, no problem.

Hope this was helpful

Re: accomodation

Rome, like all European cities, is not cheap. However, it is extremely walkable and has an excellent and inexpensive public transport system (bus/tram/metro).

Whilst you might find somewhere a bit cheaper outside the city, the time and money you would have to spend travelling in and out each day makes this something to avoid, imo.

I always stay in the Termini area: its proximity to the airport bus stop, bus station and main railway station makes it very convenient. You can easily walk to the Colosseum from Termini station in 15 minutes or so. But any area in central Rome will be within walking distance of the things you might want to see, even if you don't use public transport.

Look at www.venere.com for accommodation (I always book through them when I can): the customer reviews are honest, the site reliable and they list the majority of hotels/b&bs etc in central Rome. It also has a useful map of city districts so you can decide which is most convenient for you.

If you are happy with hostels, then www.hostelworld.com or www.hostelbookers.conm will list Rome hostels.

You can try booking at the Hotel Lord Byron. It's just a small hotel in Via G. de Notaris. It's in close proximity to the Borghese Gardens, which is like the second largest park in town. The previous responses are correct to say that accommodation in Rome are quite expensive. If you want more options, you can check out luxurylink.com for other hotels in Rome. The hotels near the most popular attractions such as the Coliseum are really way up. But if you can afford them, go for it. They actually provide tours.

Re: accomodation

A good central location helps when you have a short period of time to visit a big city like Rome with so many interesting things to see, understand and learn.
Click on Rome from the list of cities you find on the Virtual Tourist home page. There are now 1015 Hotels in Rome tips available.
If you do not mind very simple accommodation, the Okapi Rooms might be a good option www.okapirooms.it
The double room is 120 euro per night.
