    Confortable Hotel


    Basic but clean hotel.

    Staff is really polite and helpful.

    Rooms and bathrooms are spotless, the shower is big.

    It is conveniently located next to the train station (can’t hear a thing) and to the tube station.

    The only downside is the area; it is safe during the day, but comes night time and you really feel like getting a cab…

    Apart from this, I would definitely stay here again!

Great Ice Cream (Gelato) in central Rome

by abarbieri

There are many good ice cream places in central Rome but these 3 stand out in my opinion:

San Crispino (the best in the World!!)
Via della Panetteria 42
(near Trevi Fountain – closed Tuesday)

Via della Rotonda 22
(next to the Pantheon)

Piazza San Lorenzo in Lucina
(Close to Spanish Steps with tables outside)

Many people including locals do fancy the following too:

Via Uffici del Vicario 40
(not far from Pantheon)

Old Bridge
Piazza Risorgimento
(near the Vatican)

La Palma
Via della Maddalena 20
(near the Pantheon)

A special one is "Il Palazzo del Freddo - Fassi" (open since 1880) but it is not that central being located in the Esquilino area just behind the Termini train station:

Palazzo del Freddo - Fassi
Via Principe Eugenio 65

Gelato and "Palazzo del Freddo"

by sikorka

I was thinking to write about Gelato (Italian ice-cream) in the restaurant section, but in Italy GELATO is something more than just a dessert. I could say that it's part of Italian style of life. Italians really care what they eat and in which order.

Gelato can be eaten as a snack (bought in Gelateria) or at restaurant ordered after fruits and after that Italian use to order Amaro or Limoncello ( bitter or sweet liquors)

Since in Rome I've tried lots of gelato from different places, but there is a gelato place one needs to go to in order to say "I've eaten Italian gelato"

The place is called "Fassi" or "Palazzo del Freddo" and it's the oldest gelato place in Rome.
The founder of this place Giacomo Fassi opened his first ice-cream shop in 1880, but it was his son Giovanni Fassi who opened a new location in Via Principe Eugenio where we can enjoy the best gelato nowadays.

The best part is, not gelato by itself, but the atmosphere of this place. Before even getting in you'll be able to see thousand of people with gelato cones standing outside. The place is very big and there are tables where you can sit without a need to pay for this extra as in other places and what's more you can help yourself with a cup of fresh water.
I am not able to remember how many flavors of gelato they have, for sure LOTS, but the thing I like the most is panna (whipped cream) it's sooooooooooooooo good (it's homemade and you cannot even compare it to one from other places)
So nothing to write more, just enjoy!!!!!

To get there take a metro - Red Line A and get off on Piazza Vittorio stop, then go towards Via Principe Eugenio 65-67

IT'S CLOSED ON MONDAYS, other days it's open till midnight.
Small gelato - 1.50 E
Medium -2.00 or 2.50 E
Large 3.00E
There are also special, huge desserts

The oldest ice-cream factory in Rome


Palazzo del Freddo Giovanni Fassi started in 1880. Founder Giacomo was the first of 4 generations of ice-cream makers.

I found this huge ice-cream parlor by chance when we were exploring the neighbourhood nearest our hotel. It's not near any major Roman attraction, more in a local neighbourhood.
So on a late Saturday afternoon you see the local families of all ages gather to eat ice-cream or semifreddo. I saw icecream sandwiches, and all sorts of cold delights.

I'm not waging my head on saying where the best icecream is to be had in Rome. There are too many and I know too little of those parlors that make their own or buy it from a manufacturer. But I can say I enjoyed this ice-cream in this ambiance a lot!

Address: Via Principe Eugenio 65-67/A
Directions: Take the metro to Vittorio Emanuel, turn into the Via Pr. Eugenio, 2 blocks. 5 minute walk total.

Good B & B/hotel centrally located

by tmjenkins

We are staying in Rome for 4 nights this fall and would like some recommendations for a nice B & B or hotel that is walking distance from Station Termini. We will be on our honeymoon but would also like to pay around 100 Euro/night. We are from Canada and the exchange rate is a killer right now. One B & B that we are seriously considering is called Roman Rooms. Appreciate any info on this place or other locations that will be good. Thanks

I've just stayed in a really excellent place (although I'm not sure it's in your budget......hope so).

5 minutes from Termini, sparklingly clean, helpful and friendly staff, fresh rolls and pastries at breakfast, quiet rooms (especially at the back), lashings of hot water etc etc......

See my tip on

I booked through, which is a reliable site with honest customer reviews, used by many VT-ers. Search that site for something well-reviewed in your price range if the Domus Praetoria isn't available/is too expensive.

Enjoy's a wonderful city!

Eurostars Hotel is a really nice and not expensive place, close to everything in Rome! Termini station was about one bus stop from the hotel. Convenient location. Recommended! We booked through Expedia.

We stayed at the Hotel Principe Eugenio - Rome Via Principe Eugenio 90 int 4 - 00185 Rome which we reserved on It was a little sketchy looking from the outside, but upon opening the door we found a bright shining sparkling clean, air conditioned B&B. I totally recommend it without reservation. It is very close to Termini and even closer to the Metro.

We just stayed at Hotel Giardino for 120 euros a night for 2. Very clean, staff was very helpful, and it included a decent breakfast every morning. It's a small hotel (only about 10 rooms) and it was within easy walking distance of everything and in a very safe area - just down the block from Plaza Quirnale.
We'd stay there again!
