Loved the Hotel Regno
Just came back from Rome (9/6/04-9/9/04). We had a beautiful spacious beautiful room at the Hotel Regno for 200E! The Hotel is at a perfect location. Everything is walking distance and in a very safe walking area. You walk steps across and up the street to Trevi fountain, Villa Borghese, Spanish steps, Piazza di Spagna and Via dei Condotti (5th Ave of Rome-exclusive shopping) are a little further and so is the Pantheon. All are walking distance-not far at all! You are only Euros by Taxi from the Colleseum/Forum and 5E to the Vatican or you can take the #62 bus that stops in front of the hotel for 1E. Walking distance to great places to eat at all price ranges. Room 460 was large, very comfortable, very quiet even though you are right on a very busy street. All amenities were great. Breakfast was sufficient to hold you for a very late lunch or early dinner. The hotel was an unbelievable bargain. The staff was wonderful and accomodating. Everything very clean and kept up.
Lovely Hotel Regno in the Eternal City
My husband and I were on our first trip to Rome, 9/14/04 thru 9/17/04. After much research we decided to stay in Hotel Regno on Via Del Corso. Hotel Regno was very lovely and much nicer than we expected. The room was smaller than most hotel rooms in America, but was average size for a Rome hotel. It was spotlessly clean, very comfortble, bright and cheery, newly and tastefully decorated. The furniture appeared to be new. The bathroom was a good size, tiled, and also appeaed to be newly decorated. The breakfast room was charming and featured a European breakfast buffet: fresh rolls, croissants, breads, Italian cold cuts and cheeses, cereals, yogurts, espresso, cappucino, tea, milk etc.
The staff was very helpful with directions and went out of their way to accomodate us during our stay.
The location of this Hotel is excellent, within walking distance to Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, Piazza Venezia and more. We will definitely stay in Hotel Regno again on our next trip to Rome.
Regno has to be best location and most helpful staff in Rome!
A friend and I stayed at Hotel Regno for 3 nights 27/11/04. We had spent weeks online comparing deals and reviews (sad I know)! On arrival couldn't believe our luck at central location. Wandered (aimlessly) and stumbled across Trevi Fountain in 5 minutes. Colisseum etc all easy walking distance. Only bus we got was to Vatican. Staff were very helpful especially Mirta the talented multilingual breakfast waitress. As 2 females area felt very safe and non threatening. Would look no further if going back.
A charming, small hotel in a perfect location with a very pleasant and helpful staff. We travel to Europe every year and always stay in hotels similar pricewise and location wise to the Regno. It was one of our favorites.
Myself & Husband went in August 2003 to celebrate my 40th birthday. We had a fabulous time. The hotel's location is excellent - in walking distance of all major sights. The weather was absolutely scorching, but the air conditioning in the hotel was a god-send. The room was compact but adequate for the amount of time we spent in it. I would highly recommend the Regno to anyone.
Beautiful hotel, great breakfast, great location!
We stayed at the Regno mid-July 2004. It was excellent! I think we may have been assigned one of the larger rooms, so it may not have been typical of the average room, but we had a balcony (big enough for a table and chairs and a lounging chair), a small kitchenettte in the room as well as a sofabed along with the normal bed. Bathroom was spacious, clean, and well-functioning. Breafast was delicious and set out in a charming breakfast room. Air conditioning worked wonderfully and the central location of the hotel made it possible to stop up in the room every now and then for a rest. I would definitely stay there again.
Great hotel and location
Fantastic hotel. the location could not be better. Our room was 110 a bit small but great view of the street and very quiet. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Plus you can't beat the price. you can't go wrong with this hotel.
Location, Service & Value
My wife and I traveled to Rome for her 50th birthday and looking for that special place. We booked a 5 Star Hotel and upon arrival, checked out. Walking to Trevi we came across Regno by accident and after viewing a beautiful roof-top garden apartment ... checked in! The decorating and architectural appointments are exceptional. Take the time to view the detailed mirror in the dining area. A great location with a staff that provided for every need. Having been in the travel businees and to Rome several times; We will be sure to visit here again and again.
Rome for 3 days
I will be stopping into Rome for 3 days on a return flight from Isreal to the USA in the begining of May.
1- what is a good neighborhood to stay in which would be close to local attractions.
2- a good hotel in that neighborhood (80-120 a night)?
3- What is the best way to get to rome from FCO airport
any help would be great
RE: Rome for 3 days
I stayed in this wonderful little hotel right in the heart of the city, on the main shopping street Via del Corso. The staff are all very friendly and it's just a couple of minute's walk from the Trevi Fountain. It's called Hotel Regno. Have a look at it here http://www.hotelregno.it/
Most of the sights around Rome are walking distance from each other. Suggest you get a good map and study it before leaving.
Not sure about transport from the airport but this site may prove helpful http://www.adr.it/content.asp?L=3&idMen=731
A word of warning though - don't trust a cab driver who won't use his meter!
RE: Rome for 3 days
Correction on the less expensive regional train (FM1) from FCO: it doesn't go to Termini; its final destination is Tiburtina whence you will need to take the metro to Termini.
From FCO, only the Leonardo Express goes to Termini.
As far as taxi goes, there is no fear of being ripped off if you use the licensed cabs. All Roman taxi drivers are licensed and regulated. The only way for you to be overcharged is if you accept an offer for a “taxi ride” from anyone inside the lobby.
I wrote about all modes of transportation from FCO to the city on my Rome page, you might find it useful to glance at it.
