A Helpful Guide for Where To Stay in Rome
[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”50px”][vc_column_text]Talk about the perfect landing pad for my arrival to Rome. The Crowne Plaza Rome St. Peter’s Hotel and Spa is comfortable, clean, and wonderfully pleasant. I loved this hotel so much that after almost a month in Rome and a couple bookings, I’m headed back there in a few days.

– Georgia at the front desk is excellent. Fast, professional, and friendly.
– The woman at the spa reception is one of the nicest and most intuitive people I’ve encountered in a hotel in a long time.
– The Wifi is fast, especially for Rome standards (I think I was getting 40 -50 mbps pretty consistently)
– The outdoor pool is huge and awesome
– The indoor spa is pleasant (pool, steam room, sauna, etc)
– The gym includes all the basics and it’s hardly ever busy
– The room is comfortable and spacious
– You get a nice pillow spray and the bed is great
What To Know / Watch Out For
– This hotel isn’t near much of anything and cabs in Rome are fairly expensive. There’s a bus stop outside and the hotel has free shuttles, but you’re a ways from the center of it all.
– I don’t know if the walls are thin or what, but there were some loud people near me on multiple nights. In one case it was rowdy guys in the room above, and on my last night it was a group of women next door. The guys were speaking Italian, which I didn’t understand, but the conversion in English was so clear that there were a few times when I was tempted to chim in through the wall when the group couldn’t think of some pop culture references.
Why You Should Trust My Travel Reviews
I’ve done my share of staying in hotels. I did a ton of group travel as an athlete and then as a Division I softball coach in the United States. After a period of being a more normal person, I started easing into the digital nomad lifestyle after a 3-month stint in Seoul, South Korea in 2015.
When I first started as a digital nomad (I don’t love that term) I intended to live in Airbnbs full-time. After a few too many nightmare Airbnb stories I decided to switch to hotels. I’ve been heavy on the road for about three years. In the past year I stayed in more than 30 hotels from Singapore to Los Angeles, to Portugal and beyond. To reduce switching, I try to stay in a hotel for 5 to 14 days at a time, with an average of 8 nights per stay and a 3 night rule of thumb minimum.
I used to think giving bad reviews put negative energy in the world. As a result, I kept quiet. Now I see that speaking the truth is necessary to providing better service. At the end of the day, this is more fulfilling for staff and great experiences improve guests’ lives. I try to be kind in my reviews, but sleeping in hotels is serious business. It’s important to get it right and I’m committed to being truthful.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][/vc_section]
