We stayed at the Gea di Vulcano in early June. First to note, we chose this hotel because of the high ratings by fellow 'Trippers' and they were, as usual, right. Run by Alessandro and her family, for whom nothing was too much trouble, they gave us a warm welcome and looked after us through our stay. Second to note, we wasted 14 euros on a taxi from the Termini, when a 10 minute walk would have found us outside the impossing ornate wooden doors that takes you to the inner court yard and the hotel entrance. Just buzz and the security gate will open and a lift to the 1st floor leads to the reception. We stayed in room 32, which included a large bedroom, king size bed, which can be 2 singles, plenty of hanging and storage and the coffee/tea making facilities. The bathroom was also huge with a great shower, bidet and the usual offices. The room was above a side street and for the 1st night the noise was difficult to block out even with the double glazing. Yet 2nd night on somehow it all seemed less noisy and from then we enjoyed 4 goodnight sleeps. Rome was very warm and we quickly followed Roman tradition and enjoyed the cool air conditioning for the hottest hours of the day and stayed out late in the cooler air. Rome is teeming with life late into the night, so no loss. In terms of location, set in the Via Nazionale, all Rome is before you. Whether you walk or take the buses just outside the hotel, or the metro just above the hotel, you will get to all the tourist spots in quick time. We say 3* plus because of the care of the family and their staff and the elegance of the building and the large room we were given. I believe other rooms are similar and some at a premium were more luxurious than ours. We have visited Rome 5 times now. Next time we will stay here again. At our budget and at this quality its a no brainer.
