We returned from this hotel yesterday and had a lovely stay. The hotel is clean, nicely decorated and above all the staff are very friendly and will go ou of their way to help you with any querey. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms have an opulent feel to them, big marble sinks and lovely big baths. The hotel has a roof terrace, with a bar where you an order a beer or a cup of tea which is an ideal place to relax in the breeze after a hard days sight seeing! The hotel is a 15/20 minute walk to the Vatican and is a very simple direct route. Should you wish to go further into the centre of Rome you can catch a bus in the Piazza Clodio which is a two minute walk from the hotel. The buses are very regular and the trip will take about 10 minutes depending on traffic. Bus travel is very cheap in rome and you can buy a ticket from the machines at the bus stop for 1.5 euros for 100 minutes of travel!. Whatever you do DO NOT GET A TAXI to the centre, they are expensive and you will pay at least 15 euros a go. Bus travel is definately the way to go around the city as taxis will add a charge for any bag that you put in the boot and may arrive at the hotel with up to 6 euros already in the meter as this is how it works in Rome. To conclude, the hotel is slighlty out of the city but well worth the price as you would pay triple for this kind of hotel in the centre. Top Tips For Rome:1) Dont eat anywhere near the Vatican walls unless you like paying 60 euros for lunch. 2) Book tickets in advance to goaround the Vatican grdens, they look stunning and we were told it needed to be booked in advance (gutted!!) an also for the dungeons of the Colesseum. 3) dont be tempted to buy you ticket from the Colesseum from anyone outside the Colesseum. They will offer you a ticket and a tour, its a rip off, the tickets are only 12 euros (this will get you into the Colesseum, the Forum and the Palatino) You are best buying your ticket from the Palatino ad then walking down the road to the Colosseum so you dont have to queue. Tours inside only cost 5 euro and are well worth it. 4) The queues for most sights die down around about 1-2pm so aim for this time, especially for St Peters Basilica or you will que for hours in the hot sun!
