Historical Traveller Reviews of Italia 2 Hotel
Clean, comfortable and affordablefrom BGDC
There isn’t much character in the neighborhood immediately surrounding the hotel, so you need to venture out for sightseeing and dining. Some people on Trip Advisor have raved about the breakfast, but we didn’t find it to be anything special. The table service is nice, but pastries, cold pizza and red Kool-Aid seemed to be very odd choices. Maybe this is what they think Americans eat for breakfast (and some probably do) but I didn’t see these choices at any other hotel we stayed at while in Italy.
All in all, Hotel Italia is a good place to stay at a good price. It is a two-star hotel, I believe. Despite the rave reviews here, don’t get the impression this is a beautiful luxury hotel – it isn’t. But it’s clean and a good deal and I would stay here again.
Excellent Staff, Comfortable spotless rooms.from Fawn424

Super place, super pricefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Highly recommended!from A TripAdvisor Member
The room was very decent size by European standards. Parquet floors.
The furniture was basic yet functional. Our bath was great- marble, bidet, shower stall with glass door. There were doors opening onto a false balcony overlooking the street below. Hall noise is worse than street noise. The wonderful maid kept the place spotless. Lighting could have been a lot better in the room and bath. The phone wasn't working but Andrea let us use his.
The breakfast wass very good- croissants, pastries, rolls, yogurt, fruit cocktail and sometimes cold, leftover pizza (my favorite!). While main drag Via Nazionale is not the most appealing street, the hotel's location is great. You can walk to all th ehistoric sites, though the Vatican would be a haul. It is just three blocks to Teatro dell 'Opera.
Also, many good and upscale stores (Frette, Brioni, etc.) nearby that were having great sales when we were there. Try "Harley" on Via Nazionale for men's and women's clothes. Also, there's a restaurant called Il Quadrofoglio (sp?) a few blocks away that wasn't cheap but had great food. Never pay more than $15 euros for a bottle of wine wherever you eat.
For the price (we paid the high season rate of $113 euros with no hidden charges and everything included), I have no complaints. I think you'll be pleased with Hotel Italia.

They could not have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them, both spoke perfect English and both had a great sense of humour.
They were a mine of useful information on which buses to take, restaurants etc. We were so fortunate to pick this hotel for our first stay in Rome. What a wonderful city made even better by the Hotel Italia and especially Nadine and Anna. We can't wait to return.

Top Local Tips for Rome
Palatine Hill, Colisuem at Night Don't skip it after the forum - the gardens were lovely and there is quite a sense of place there, commanding views, and we were there in January. Also the ruins and much of the city is very different at night, it seemed quite safe. The various churches and statues take on a different feeling by the light of the moon.
Getting around Rome We are in our 50s and like to walk. You can literally walk all of Rome in 2 days and see just about every ancient ruin and museum. It does get a little tough on the feet walking on cobble type stones that date back to the 13th century, though. We did hop the subway to the Vatican. The subway is pretty easy to figure out, relatively inexpensive, and will take you just about anywhere you want to go. We took a day trip train ride to Florence. Slightly pricey, but worth the trip! Book your Florence museum passes online in advance - you'll save lots of time from waiting in line with those who didn't.
Vatican and Coliseum Admission VERY long queues at both no matter what time you arrive (unless you don't go to bed!) Book you tickets in advance (check their websites) Also, many attractions are closed on a Sunday. Example...We arrived at the Vatican Museum at 10.30 am (30 mins after opening) to a 3 hour queue. It is 13 euro admission. We were approached on the street by a tour quide who said for 40 euro we could jumo the queue, get a ticket and have a tour.....dodgy I hear you say? I thought so. Paid him anyway! Jumped the queue and had a very informative 3 hour tour from him. Same story at the Colliseum.
