Subject: Rome Termini Hotel
Hi, Ziners!

Seeking information and advice on hotels within walking distance from Rome Termini.

After an overseas flight, we like to overnite in the arrival city to un-jetlag and to prepare for the next day's drive to our destination. And the night before our return, we try to stay in a hotel with shuttle service and located near the airport, particularly for an early flight out.

Flying to Rome for this September's fortnight in Tuscany. The Hilton at FCO is beyond our budget and web searches turned up generally adverse reviews of other hotels around the airport.

Plan B is to take the train from FCO to Termini and stay in a hotel within walking distance of the station.

Only other time in Rome, we stayed at the Oceania on Via Firenze, a very pleasant property but fully booked on our dates this trip (Rick Steves uses the Oceania for his tours).

So, we are looking for a quiet, clean, safe, affordable (EUR 120 or less for a matrimoniale double with bath) hotel within walking distance of Termini.

Anyone have opinions on these--or other properties near Termini?

Hotel Mirage (AKA Hotel Leale), Via Milazzo 4 Hotel Viennese, Via Marsala 64 Hotel Viennese Due, Via Milazzo 3 Hotel Bianca, Via Volturno 48 Hotel Iride, Via D'Azeglio 24 Capitol Hotel, Via G. Amendola 83 Hotel Cressy, Via Volturno 27 B& B 58 di Via Cavour B& B Best Place Rome, Via Filippo Turati 13 69 Manin Street B& B

Also, are there areas around Termini that we should avoid?

Many thanks for your help! Jerry in E TN USA
