Most Magnificent Hotel in Rome
We stayed at the Rome Waldorf Astoria Hotel over the Christmas holidays. It was above the city, close to the Vatican. The city view was amazing! The lobby was filled with beautiful paintings, sculptures & antiques- very well done! The rooms were beautiful and filled with every amenity you could imagine! The sheer size of the room makes it magnificent! There is a balcony with an electric shade that can go up & down with a switch. They have several pools, spas, and even a carrousel for the children! The staff are attentive and helpful. Everything that you could want in a hotel, including a peaceful night's sleep.
Unique Quality: Great views
Close to Vatican City
No Problems Whatsoever
The best way to get there is Metro. If you do need to get a taxi, it only costs 20 euro from Termini, and 10 euro from The Vatican.
We were very happy staying at this hotel. It's not very close to any sights, but it's right by the Metro and in 20 minutes you can be at The Vatican. And it's actually nice to be in a suburb rather than in the hubub - we would get in at night and go out to a restaurant and be surrounded by the locals.
The people at the concierge were really friendly. We didn't try the bar, but there was one on the roof, and a "secret garden" out the back with tables and lanterns where people were enjoying drinks.
The room was modern, recently refurbished. A really good size, with lots of wardrobe space. The bed was fine (the only problem was it was 2 single mattresses pushed together to make a double, however, they were wedged together quite firmly, and we didn't notice this after a while). There was also a small balcony - but no view!
In the bathroom there was a bath, good shower with excellent pressure and temperature. Toilet, bidet, and a hairdryer.
Breakfast buffett was included - quite a reasonable spread of breads, ham, cheese, scrambled egg, cereals, lots of delicious pastries, jams, yoghurt, fruit. Coffee tea, water, juice, frozen coffee and yoghurt smoothie. It was the same every morning. The staff in the breakfast were great - constantly clearing up and keeping things replenished.
Apparently there is a restaurant, but we didn't see one - I think you can have dinner there but you might have to pre-book. Rather, I would suggest going to the restaurant just around the corner called Lo Zio Frankies.
There is also a supermarket nearby (interspar), so if you're wnating to be cheap buy all your food from there. You need to keep going down the main road away from the hotel, past the 2 Metro station entrances, and it is directly across the road from the MacDonalds.
Unique Quality: You're in a nice quiet suburb, really close to the Metro and buses. There's a fabulous restaurant nearby as well as a supermarket. We would buy a picnic lunch before heading out for the day.
Directions: Closest Metro is Cornelia line A. It is only a 5 minute walk from the station. Take the Monte de Crito exit. You need to walk towards the bus depot, it's on a side street directly opposite the buses to your right, then your next left is the street it's on
