Like the reviews before it is extremely close to the train station, literally 5 mins the TAM bus is cheap coming in and out and it all works really smoothly. I appreciated the comment saying the entrance from the hotel is across from the Milano Hotel (check it out on google). You are buzzed into the hotel - reception is glass doors across from Milano. Room was spotlessly clean but small and the reception staff are very helpful, extremely good English. We came back out onto the street to go to our hotel room which was two doors up ground floor. Swipe card gets you in. Only problem was we could hear other guests leaving early in the morning it woke you up, the large front door bangs shut so loudly. Large TV in the room though once your back in and feet throbbing. he stall holders nearby will sell you water, wine, beer. The breakfast was ok, its DIY and I heard people asking when things needed replenished but there was scrambled eggs, bacon, you make your toast, there is cereal, fruit juice but some nice little sweet treats if you like that (which I do). It's not a four star by any means but we had came to Rome to walk everywhere and see the sights, be out all day, we just wanted a comfy bed and clean. There are lots nice little places to eat nearby, we sat in on one and tram goes by next to your table (strange but fun). On our last night we were walking to a restaurant for dinner and saw needle and syringe on street so be careful out there. The restaurants don't seem to mind people approaching you trying to sell you beads, scarves, blankets, playing instruments....they don't hunt sellers but if you firmly say no they move on. One restaurant 6 sellers came by and it was a bit pest having this during nice meal. The Yes Hotel is ok, nothing spectacular but you have to be on your guard and they warn you about pick-pockets when you arrive but every city has this problem I guess. All in all it was a great visit to Rome but you have keep your wits about you in this area. We paid 18 Euros for a large beer in one of the squares. They asked large or small beer? Warm weather - my other half said Yes large beer. Cost him 18E. Ask first. On the plus book your tickets for Coliseum and Vatican Museum on line before you go - saved us queuing for hours. Vatican Museum you walk past all queues and take your online ticket inside to swop for another. We were looking for directions to pick up our tickets and there are guides who will pester the life out of you to try get another 50 Euros for a private guided tour. You don't pay to actually get into the Vatican. When you are finished visiting the museum, you have to come back out to go round the wall to the Vatican as far as I'm aware? We wanted to see everything at our pace. If you want audio guide, they will take your passport or driving licence off you to ensure you bring the audio device back. When we also visited the Coliseum (which is amazing) you walk straight in past the crowds, your ticket covers the Forum (awesome) and Palatine Hill. When we went the queue was 2 hrs long so the on-line ticket was brilliant. You can't get to the very top Coliseum unless you pay for a guide. We tagged on - cheekily when we saw people going up a level! and was told in no uncertain words to move back down, so if your prepared to pay another E25 each then go for it. All in all Rome was a joy, weather beautiful. Just be on your guard. Lots see and do - Rome is amazing place.
