FANTASTICO!!.....Hotel Morgana was just perfect for my "Big Birthday" surprise...4 nights in Rome! It's a mid-priced 4-star "boutique" hotel, situated just 100 metres from Termini Station - the hub of Rome's transportation system, so places can be easily accessed by bus, tram, Metro, or train. The area is reportedly "rather dodgy" especially at night, and indeed the hotel entrance is kept locked at all times, however we witnessed no problems. Our biggest risk was posed by scooters and SMART cars, which seem to "breed" on the City streets!!
The Hotel can be reached from Fiumicino Airport by taxi (40-50 euros), or the half-hourly "Leonardo Express" is so convenient (14 euros pp).
The Hotel was beautifully furnished with elegant decor and antique pieces. Our Room 101 was small, but very comfortable with modern fully-tiled bathroom. Wi-Fi was free, air-conditioning was quiet, mini-bar was available "to order"........my only "niggle" was we had to pay extra 5 euros per day for tea/coffee facility! Our room overlooked an inner courtyard area and was very quiet.....comfortable bed plus "tired legs" meant we slept well!
All Staff were excellent.....Reception was friendly and welcoming, and always helpful with booking a taxi, suggesting places to visit, or places to dine-out.
The Hotel had a truly International mix of guests, and many different languages/accents were to be heard at breakfast! Continental breakfast buffet was excellent with good selection of cold meats, cheeses, fruit, bread, pastries, cereals plus hot scrambled eggs and bacon.......a good start to the day!! Staff worked tirelessly to ensure there was never a long wait for a table.
Rome was a truly amazing City with "surprises" around every corner......churches, monuments, Piazzas, fountains etc......A great introduction to the City is via one of the many hop-on/hop-off open-top tour buses.....nearest stop Termini. However the best way to explore Rome is on foot, armed with guide book, map and camera......wearing comfortable shoes!....We walked for miles!!
TOP TIP.....when visiting the Vatican or Colosseum please pre-book a guided tour to avoid the very long queues!!
My Wife and I really enjoyed our visit, and have kept with tradition by throwing coins into Trevi Fountain.........we will definitely return to Rome!!
MILLE GRAZIE HOTEL MORGANA!!!!
"Inner" rooms with "Courtyard view" are very quiet. I could imagine rooms at fro...
