Subject: Re: Hotel in Rome
Hi Ziners! -

Pat recommended the Hotel delle Muse and we can second his recommendation about Georgio being a wonderful host.

But there is one thing that you need to know before you book at the Hotel delle Muse. It is a darn long bus trip (at times incredibly crowded busses) to the parts of Rome your parents will want to see. We figured that in our four days there we lost about 8 prime hours of touring time on the bus back and forth to the hotel. We are folks who like to tour early in the day (miss the crowds) and then go back to our hotel, relax and tour in the evening. When we did this in Rome the bus ride was a half hour each way. So we lost 2 hours a day. OUCH!

On the other side, Georgio could not have been a better host. If they go, ask for room 21. It is wonderful. We were there in November of 2002 and they were in the middle of remodeling. Hopefully it is all done and all the rooms are this nice.
