We started off with the wrong foot when we tried to take a taxi from the railway station (Roma Termini). They were quoting ridiculous prices and we decided to take the metro despite have some serious luggage. We got a 3-day pass which I highly recommend. When I got off the Coloseo station with my wife and our second-grader son, we were greeted by the grand Colosseum! We walked to Hotel Lancelot admiring the lovely monument.
The hotel staff were extremely friendly. The elevator is tiny but we did well, not really an issue. We enjoyed the morning breakfast and since most places got crowded easily, it is good to have an early start. I would recommend going part of a tour. Only thing I remember from our previous trip was that we stood in lines forever. This time we got in quickly both to the Colosseum and also Vatican. You can find people selling you group tours at the attractions itself.
It was wonderful that the hotel had very knowledgable staff who gave us excellent advice. I liked that they had a decent-sized safe deposit box. They were very generous about check in and check out time. When we returned we used a taxi and this time the hotel staff took care and we paid the right price. Overall our experience was fabulous. A little pricier but we are glad to pay it for the comforts, cleanliness and convenience.More
