Rome Hotel Reviews - all from personal experience

I've stayed at all of these hotels in Rome within the past year:

4 Star - Sheraton Parco de Medici - - This one is a favorite because the beds are pure heaven. Cost varies from $100-200 US per night. Located about half way between Fiumicino Airport and downtown Rome, the hotel offers a free regularly scheduled shuttle service into the city. Shuttle to the airport only runs once at about 8am (outbound only). Expect to pay about 40 Euros for cab fare from the airport.

3 Star - Hotel Tritone - - Downtown and central to Trevi Fountain, etc.., but there's a church next door and the bells toll EVERY HOUR. About $280 US/night.

4 Star - Alante Garden Hotel - - About 3 blocks from Vatican square and no church bells within earshot. Easy walk to all buses. FREE airport shuttle both ways. Pd $307 US/night.

4 Star - Domina Hotel & Conference Capanele -
A bit off the beaten path with bus service to the train into central Rome (and it's really close to the catacombs) - pd 66 Euros/night 1/25/10

4 Star AND MY NEW FAVORITE - Hotel Bettoja Massimo D'Azeglio -
From inside Fiumicino Airport, follow the signs for "Treni" and catch the train into town for about 11 Euros. Walk out the front door of the station and the hotel is only about 1 1/2 blocks away. Pd $152 US/night on 2/1/10
