Historical Traveller Reviews of Duca DAlba Hotel
Definitely worth the price by European standards...from kfairchild58
Peters early in the morning...we left the hotel at 6:15am and arrived by 7:00 am...we were practically alone in St. Peter's..and were able to view the Pieta for quite some time alone.....the desk clerk at the Duca D'Alba not only called us on time for our wake up call...but called me back at 6:15 to remind me that I wanted to leave early for the Vatican!! He had heard us discussing it the night before, and since he knew it was our last day, he wanted to be sure we made the most of it!
Believe me, we did not give this hotel a good rating because it had a large American breakfast! We have traveled extensively, and we are fairly discriminating...if you are looking for a big chain, this is not for you. But if you are looking for charm and easy access to lots of places in Rome...this should be your choice!! Just ask for the room with the balcony when you chek in....it is very small, but very clean, and the balcony gives you the space where it is most important...outdoors!
Not too good.from A TripAdvisor Member
For a substantial price you get a non substantial room. Its small.
The hotel location is close to some great sites, but its almost impossible to find or to walk back to due to its location and being uphill.
I was beginning to think I stayed at the wrong hotel when I got there and saw all this. I just think the very good reviews should be tempered with overly high expectations. Its really more like a Holiday Inn Express.

Nice place - Great Price....Advice about eating in Romefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Skip it. The food was so so and we were not treated nice by the weight staff or the owner. There are much better places. If I didn't know any better I would think those reviews were written by the restaurant's management. It took us so long to get our bill that other patron's in the restaurant were pointing it out to the manager how long we had waited. If you want something quick the pizza place on the opposite side of the street from the hotel down the ally is good and cheap. The Irish pub across the street gives a very generous serving of Baileys at a good price if you are looking for a last night cap before you head in. There is a restaurant up the stairs that is located right by the hotel. The food is ok, but it has one of the best red house wines we had our whole trip and that is saying a lot!TIP: When looking for good places to eat walk to the middle of nowhere off the beaten path. That is where you will eat the best for the cheapest. Also, if you see any retaurants that are full of actual italians by 6 or 7pm...eat there.
Most italians don't eat till very late so if a retaurant fills up early you know its good. If no one is in the retaurant by 7:30 - 8:00 stay away.
wonderful choicefrom Thilan
Exceptional Staff!from Corina1231
She loved the bacon served at breakfast. The gentleman who worked at the front desk was very helpful and spoke perfect english. He directed us to great pizza and gelato shops. Around the corner there is a cute little square with a fountain and lots of pigeons to feed (and an incredible view of the Coliseum). We walked (with our daughter) to the coliseum, trevi fountain, piazza navona, palantine hill. The train from the airport to the Termini was great. However, I would not recommend the underground metro. Cab fare was about $6 - $8 euro from the termini to Duca D'Alba.
Top Local Tips for Rome
Bus transfer from Ciampino airport Do not use Terravission aiport transport provider recommended by RyanAIr (tickets sold on flight) - so badly organised - on arrival you are just left standing around with buses sitting there but not allowed to get on. Was worse coming back - told to head to bus by 6pm but when got there, there was crowds of people waiting on buses too - took over an hour before could board a bus - absolutely no organisation - didnt know when bus would arrive & it was a free for all when boarding bus. Rude staff who didnt know anything!!!
Guided Tours Recommed Romaround Tours for various guided tours of Vatican and Colloseum;
subway Be aware that the subway Line A, the one that runs to Spagna, quits running at 9. Line B runs until 11:30. Taxis also can only be picked up at taxi stands.
