After fruitless searching the web for suitable decent accommodation for 4 nights during a peak in school holidays and public holidays, I asked the receptionist in the Mercure where we were staying in Bologna, to see what she could do, and we managed to get just 2 nights at the Corso Trieste.
The instructions for getting a bus to the hotel from the Rome railway station were straightforward and when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised at being in a nice residential neighbourhood. We travel light so wheeling our cabin size trolleys the 400 metres was no trouble, but we are glad we bought a Rome map first whilst at the railway station.
We were able to get another two nights, but at €138 for weeknights and €120 for the weekend is much higher than that stated on the tripadvisor website.
The rooms are standard Mercure but with the added touch of tea making facilities in the room. The air con is very good, and the windows open for fresh air.
We have eaten at one of the pizza places just down the road near where we catch the bus into town and we will go back to it again as it was so good.
The bus trips are a lot of fun, being with the locals going into work.
A new metro stop has been opened up near the bus stop and the are good little bakeries and fruit carts all clustered around the other eateries so we were able to get everything we needed.
All in all our luck in getting this quiet oasis so close to the centre of Rome has been fortunate as one really does need to unwind after spending hours each day in the hustle and bustle of what is a most interesting city.
