ROME: we were in Rome for 8 nights. We stayed at the Residenza al Corso, #18 via del Corso 00186. Their email is -----, look for Mr. Carlito Monge. I don’t know if they have a website up already, but they didn’t when I booked the room. This place offers great value for money – it’s about a 10 minute leisurely stroll from Via Condotti (which we all know opens up to the Spanish steps.) It’s literally 20 steps from the Piazza del Popolo of the twin Basilicas. There’s a bus stop right across the street too (Bus 117 which goes down Via del Corso towards the Colloseo, Piazza de Venezia, San Giovanni in Laterano, etc.) A new, convenient route we discovered was to go to the Vatican from this hotel, all we needed to do was go to the Piazza del Popolo, take the Regina Margherita bridge and onto Cola di Rienzo (a shopping street too!) – at most a 20-minute walk to the Vatican. All in all, this hotel was a great location from practically every important tourist destination in Rome. For easy reference, it’s the 2nd floor of the building of the Casa di Goethe Museum. And yes, there is an elevator.
The rooms are of adequate size, and the bathrooms are pretty big. All very clean, they even change your sheets everyday. I liked that I could smell pinesol after they cleaned out the bathrooms! Buffet breakfast of cereals, cookies, assorted warm breads, jams and butter, milk, juice, fruits, yoghurt, and freshly made, excellent cappuccinos. Service was great too. Only catch was that they didn’t have cable tv, but that didn’t really matter as we were out the whole day anyway. I would not think twice about booking with them in the future.
