Following Tripadvisor reviews we booked our stay at Hotel Giuliana for six nights in early February, it was only a 10 minute walk from termini station and most of the main attractions were easily accessed on foot and the bus or underground transport was so efficient to reach any other destinations that would take a while out of your day or are a little too far.
On arrival Antonio was there to greet us, he along with the other staff were so friendly, helpful and very accomodating. The room itself was cold on arrival although warmed up quickly with the heating available, bath was a little disapointing but the room was clean, comfortable and adequate for all we needed. A lot of reviews mention the early morning noise from the market in the street, we were in room 20 which was on that side, the first morning the noise did wake us up but we found due to the amount of walking we did it was not a problem for the rest of our stay. Breakfast was a buffet that was always fresh and plentiful, cappuccino very good.
Rome really is a beautiful city with so much to see, our highlights were the Trevi fountain at night, the Collosium and the Vatican although enjoyed all of the others too. Rome could be an expensive stay but we researched before we went to ensure best budget eats, Napolli just opposite Hotel Giuliana is a very good and reasonable pizza, Pizza Forum in Via di san giovanni in laterano did a fantastic bruchetta, lasagne, water and coffee for 10 euros each, Cafe Cafe do a lovely hot chocolate for 3 euros each, forno campo de fiori also great and the hazelnut Ice cream in Il Gelato di San Crispino was stunning.
Overall we had a fantastic time in Rome, if your on a budget we would reccomend hotel Giuliana, they fully deserve all of the good reviews, I really hope to return to Rome and would stay at this hotel again. Thank you all.
