Two minute walk from Terminii – brilliant. Pleasant, helpful checkin. Room with very high ceilings and a sense of spaciousness so rare in more modern hotels. The Gioberti has a sense of grandeur and elegant charm. Room clean, bed was comfortable, double glazing blocked out street noise, shower functional, breakfast (included) was good. They happily stowed our bags for us (in a locked room managed by an attendant) while we did battle with the other several million tourists in the city that day, returned to collect them and jumped back on the train. For an efficient stop in Rome, this hotel (& location) is a top choice. On a more general note re Rome, the numbers of visitors seemed to us to have quadrupled since our last visit 5 years ago making many of the key sights unpleasant experiences (St Peters, Pantheon, Trevi, etc). If planning to visit the Vatican be prepared for very long (up to an hour) wait in full sun in a sardine-like crush to get through initial security screening, just to get into the main central square. The number of ambulances on standby is an indicator that people are struggling with this process in the intense summer heat. The highlights of our stay were wandering the city in the peace of the evening, and by day going to the more out of the way sights (Bellini’s ‘St Therese’ at Santa Maria della Vittoria, Caravaggio’s (and more) at del Popolo, etc) where you had space to appreciate the great works.
