We recently made our first trip to Italy and stayed 3 nights at Hotel Victoria. The location is good, anise walk from everything. About an hour walk from the Vatican. The room was nice, clean and basic. The bed was comprised of 2 singles pushed together and each day the bed was made as if it were 2 singles - odd. Hard to sleep together and not "fall in the crack" between the beds! The staff for the most part were friendly except the maitre d and the concierge that was attending on the day of our arrival, March 2nd. The concierge was a bit rude and very inattentive to our needs. On one occasion he and the maitre d were discussing something and when we approached the desk to ask for some information neither one acknowledged us. They both saw us, but I guess felt that customer service was not their priority. We stood three for at least 3 minutes before they finally concluded their own business and turned to help us. This is not a cultural thing, it is simply poor business in any country. Other than that the stay was nice, nothing special. Breakfast was good and the room was comfortable.

Scrupulously clean hotel in good central location. Service pleasant and understated. We ate breakfast each morning in the dining room as this was February but if travelling in warmer months then the roof top terrace would be a lovely place to dine and admire the views over the city.

We stayed with 2 children (11 and 3 years old). Quiet and cosy. Good location. We walked with children from this hotel to all central sightseens, may 2 times used bus, but it was OK even with small child. Breakfast was average for 4* hotel, even poor compares with others 4* hotels. Friendly stuff.

Or course the location is terrific. Right next to Via veneto and plenty of buses taking you in 20 min to other central sites in Rome. The service is very gentle and careful and the rooms are quiet which is not obvious in the centre of the town. I love the roof top veranda where to eat of just sip a glass of wine. It is not always open because of weather conditions. I recommend it!

Hotel Victoria is set in a really convenient area of Rome and a nice walk down Via Veneto towards lots of shops and piazzas. Stayed 4 nights during our honeymoon to Europe. Hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. Room is small, but no different than any other hotel in Europe. Bathrooms and shower were very nice white tile and hard wood floors in the room. Beds were comfortable. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel and would stay here again if we return to Rome.

Paris to Rome – By train – Don’t even think about it. Bangladesh has better and cleaner trains than the Trenitalia Night Train. Take a plane from London to Rome, or walk. You have to change trains in Milan.
Rome – NH Via Veneto and Victoria Hotel. These are the two best places to stay. Some of the cab drivers know the Via Veneto as the previously owned Jolly Via Veneto Hotel. Get a card from the front desk so that no one will mistake where you want to go. Both of these hotels are in a great area and there are many good places to see within a short walking distance. If you want to spend a lot of time doing the Vatican, this is also the spot to be.
The Victoria Hotel has a Trip Advisor 4 Star Rating. We didn’t stay there but will on our next visit. The Front Desk Staff is the most courteous and helpful we have ever met and they don’t mind you using their potty. They, like the NH Via Veneto, have an included full breakfast and Wi-Fi.
Midnight Mass in St Peters Basilica is a destination in and of itself. Fax or write for tickets a year in advance and if you know a bishop, ask him for a special indulgence to get a ticket. See the Vatican web page for full details. There are large, concert venue style TV screens placed around St Peters Square that will allow you to stand in the cold and observe the service. Several churches offer very nice Midnight Masses if you can’t get to St Peters. The Pantheon is the oldest Catholic Church in Rome and has the size to fit a real crowd. We walked to Santa Maria del Vittorio where there was a small service but we got to spend the hour gazing at the beautiful statue of The Ecstasy of St Therese – one of the stops on the Path of Illumination in the Dan Brown novel, ‘Angels and Demons’. Santa Maria del Popolo is also another choice. The Chigi Chapel and a newly restored Caravaggio are located there. The West Ponte at the base of the obelisk in St Peters Square is covered over by a Nativity Scene. The Palazzo Novanno with Bernini’s Four Rivers Fountain masterpiece rounds out the Illuminati Quest. The depth of the basin and the air hoses so nicely depicted from the movie don’t exist.
On Christmas Day at noon the Pope offers the Orbi et Urbi Blessing to the faithful in St Peters Square.
At 3:30 PM Viatour started a very ambitious Christmas Day Walking Tour that began in the Piazza del Popolo and ended in St Peters Square. Here again, our hotel location and the 116 Bus Line made all the difference.
The 116 Bus goes from Pinciana to Gianicolo Termini. Pinciana is right down the street from both hotels. The 116 Bus is an eco-friendly, hybrid bus that holds about a dozen people. This was my second trip to Rome and again, for the second time, I didn’t buy a bus ticket. The drivers don’t check and I saw only one person in three days of frequently using this bus ever validate a ticket. It seems that it is still a tradition in Rome to get on the bus and not worry about billets. Don’t try that on the express or tandem buses.
You go through an enormous portion of old Rome on the way to the Vatican. Get off along the way for a variety of plazas, obelisks, churches and fountains. At the Termini, there is a huge underground walkway that takes you out to Vatican Square. Get your tickets online for the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. The wait, especially to get into St Peters Basilica can be quite a while. Other times of the year the Pope has a weekly Wednesday Audience. You can get free tickets for a closer view and it is well worth the effort.
We did the hop on-hop off bus. There are several brands that all follow the same route, but we won’t use them again. They stop too far away from a lot of the sights and pass too quickly by others. There is all kinds of scaffolding on the Colosseum and unless you want to tour inside, you won’t see that much from the bus. It is better to take a city bus to specific destinations like this.
The Hard Rock Cafe Rome is just down the way on Via Veneto from both of the hotels. While food is very expensive all over Europe, you do get a full plate. Be careful of the places that serve drinks from a bottle. You’ll pay for each bottle. Places that serve from a fountain offer free refills (Hard Rock does this).

Christmas away from home is not such a bad idea and can really be the best to-me, from-me Christmas present you can get.

I spent Christmas in Rome and stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. The staff was excellent, although there was a bit of a language barrier with a few members. The shower was wonderful, although separate from the actual bathroom. If you are traveling with someone other than a close friend or lover, it could be a little awkward (but there is a privacy curtain for the glass) It was pretty centrally located, a short walk from Barberini and the Spanish steps and a brisk paced 30 minute walk to Vatican City. If you stay here, be sure to stroll through the gardens located right next to the hotel. Simply beautiful! Wifi was hit or miss, but I would recommend staying here, it's safe for solo and female travelers.
