03/20/12 We just came back from a week trip to Rome and stayed at the Rex. you will find Great service here for a small hotel. Franchesca was great help and always very pleasant to talk too, her English was very good. WiFi worked great, also they have a computer you can use with a printer that was free to use. Our room was 203 a little narrow but had a king bed and a twin for the three of us. The bathroom was a good size. Room was clean... no view from window.
Breakfast was good a little different than in US but you left full and never got sick. Metro and termini a 10 minute walk. Some tips....
From airport Fromunico you can take Terrivision Bus 4 euros non stop to termini.
Take a debit card to get euros at an ATM much cheaper than exchange places down there banks will not exchange US money there.... also buy some euros here at your bank.
The Metro is cheap to use 1 euro 1 way or get an all day pass at front desk 4 euros.
At restuarants ask for tap water, bread is not free, everything is extra... so just order what you want with no extras... say no if they put something on your table you do not want.
You can bargain with some vendors.... example the ones on the street selling pocket books. If they want 40 euros offer them 10 to 15..... remember our exchange rate is not good there.
Water is fine to drink there fountains etc..... The Metro is packed at some stops keep your wallet in front pocket or do not carry a pocket book. Most dress in jeans a black leather jacket and a scarp or gray top. Most younger women do not dye their and keep it long. Anyway everyone seems to dress the same.... take good walking shoes.... sneakers. Most streets are coble stone. Overall a great experience ..... you can walk to a lot of attractions our week the temperature was in low 60's. My email address if you want more tips.
