|Subject: Re: Rome hotels|
Pauline: My husband and I took advantage of the
Alitalia deal to Rome last year. We were there in mid
February and were quite comfortable in sweaters and
jackets. We even enjoyed sitting at outdoor patios
drinking wine. We went for the cheapest hotel rate
because we had already planned a month long trip to
Italy in May. We stayed at the Hotel Center - it was
the last one available to us, as we booked only two
weeks before we left. The hotel was clean and in a
good location - a few blocks from the subway which
takes you everywhere. The room was very small but
clean and it had a good bed and a terrific shower.
Pack a bathtowel because those provided are more like
dish towels. The people at the hotel were friendly
and helpful. For the price, I would go there again.
Look up the hotels on the internet. Be sure to take
the free tour that comes with the deal - it is great.
This year, we booked the Alitalia deal for a week in
Florence in March.
