For those travelers who are on a tight budget and looking for a great location, Casa Romana is the perfect place! Located one block away from the Termini, Rome’s grand central station where the buses, trains and the metro (subway) lead to all the sites, sounds and flavors of the Eternal City! My cousin and I were pleasantly surprise to be greeted at the lobby by Fulvia, the charming proprietress of this small hotel. Casa Romana is on the second floor of an old residential building, with manually operated elevator which I got a kick out of! This place is more of a guest house than a typical B&B hotel. The service was very personal and warm. Our room, with full -size bed, was sufficient in size, very nice, always kept clean and with an efficient air conditioning. Rome in August, is very hot so a good working A/C is a must! The bathroom has a lovely modern fixtures. The hotel has a small common space, where guests can get their breakfast of fresh brewed coffee, yogurt, orange juice, slices of salami and toast. And all day, Fulvia supplied the guests with delicious muffins and fresh fruits. The room has no TV but who needs a TV when Rome is waiting for you to be seen and explored? Wi-Fi was available. We took either the Metro or bus from Termini to all the major tourist sites (such as the Coliseum, Roman Forum, Vatican City’s St. Peter’s Basilica, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, etc!) are either 15 to 20 minutes ride!
I can’t say enough of how good the location is of Casa Romana. From this hotel we walked to other major and important sites of Rome, such as the church of Sta. Maria Vettoria where one of the famous masterpieces of Bernini – the sculpture of “St. Theresa in Ecstasy” has been in residence. Also, walking distance away, the Saint Mary of the Angels and Saints Basilica, a very vast church that Michelangelo designed around the ancient Diocletian Baths now one of Rome’s great museums. Another church that’s just few minutes walk from Casa Romana is the Santa Maria Mangiore, one of the important churches in Rome, known for its beautiful mosaic. I know I will go back to Rome and when I do, I like to stay again in Casa Romana.
