Is there a better / cheaper way to get to the hotel in a private car? Will a taxi be better?

Edit: found my answer with the "50 flat rate" signs by the taxi stands. Uber was up over 75; in a taxi now
Flat rate! Commune di Roma taxis are legit.... Only use those to and from airport.

I just ate here; thanks for recommending it.



Mozzarella and Proscuitto di Parma

Black Truffle Ravioli

Sea Bass

Chocolate Cake topped with ricotta and pear

Everything was good. If I had to do it over I would probably order a white truffle dish instead of the ravioli (I hadn't eaten truffles in a while and had forgotten that black truffles are not my favorite. The dish was still good though)

This was a lot of food; I hadn't eaten in about a day (jet lag; unfortunately I slept all day) and I still didn't manage to finish the dessert (which is a shame because it was extremely good). I would suggest one less dish on a "normal" appetite.

The price was reasonable too; 88 for all this food, a beer, 2 bottles of water (750 mL each) and an espresso.

I like the hotel as well. Certainly the room is small (I got upgraded to a deluxe room; it's still tiny) but the shower is good (very hot water; rainfall shower; good pressure) and the bed is extremely good quality (very firm and comfortable; my back feels good despite sleeping for so long). The blackout curtains keep the room nice and dark for sleeping too.

There are lots of very beautiful luxury hotels around here, but if you don't want to spend that kind of money this is a very good option.

Unfortunately I slept through breakfast (by about 6 hours) so I can't comment on that yet.

I just did a 1 night stay using a cert. On checkout I was charged 6 euros for the city tax. Is that normal? I've never been charged taxes on an award night before.

Yes, that's normal. Many jurisdictions charge a fixed occupancy tax per night. Some properties may choose to pass that tax on to the guest.

PSA: Check your Hyatt CC transactions

I had two recent stays here. One was just a $6 city tax charge on a free night but the other was a 4 night paid stay. Neither one posted as a Hyatt charge so I only got 1x pts. I'll call Chase today

Looking at this hotel for an upcoming stay for a family of 4. From the descriptions, there doesn't seem to be much difference between the 1 King Bed Family Room, Junior Suite and the Junior Suite Deluxe. Rates are pretty close to each other on these room types - any of these rooms better than the others?

And it doesn't seem like this hotel offers any connecting room types?

these are not suites at all - suggest getting two rooms. Not sure what the family room would be like but I couldn't swing a cat in my "suite"

Thank you! Guess we will have to look outside the Hyatt network for this stay.

Can anyone confirm that the bedding in the standard room (King) looks like the picture? If so, this will work fine for me and a buddy, similar to 2 twins.

This is probably too late for your stay, but for anyone else looking, this hotel does do second room discounts for Family stays as long as nobody is older than 12 in the second room, they'll give you ~50% off the flex rate (mine was a few euro over 50% not sure why). You have to call to book as you cannot use this rate online. First room can be booked via points or cash.

Thank you! Yeah we are familiar with this rate plan - I believe it is common throughout all Hyatt properties in Europe. It would only work for us however if the rooms would be connecting, and it doesn't seem this property has those (unless someone says otherwise!)

I am staying here next month on a solo trip. I used a SUA to get this: "One King Junior Suite"

The points per night seemed reasonable.

My first trip to Rome. Any suggestions on what to do on a short visit?

Ive had two excellent food tours with Domenico from Eating Europe. Both are tasty ways to get off the beaten tourist track.

The Colosseum tour at night is pretty spectacular. I love wandering the city to see the monuments all lit up.

You can book early access to the Vatican Museums and see the Sistine chapel with a small group vs being packed in like sardines later in the day.

I guess it depends what you are in to, but those things have been some of my more memorable Rome experiences.

IMO the Pantheon is an absolute must. Only takes 30 minutes.
