You go to Rome to walk and visit the historical sites. The Hotel Julia is in the perfect location. Once you check-in, a short walk to the Barberini Piazza gets you in the proper mood. The room was great, the staff was very helpful and you feel relaxed and secure in your room. After a (free) breakfast from the well stocked buffet, you grab a map and head out to the many historical sites and piazzas that are within walking distance of the Julia. I should also mention that the train station Termini is a short (inexpensive) ride away and the metro station is at the Piazza Barberini. Don't let the low rates fool you. I have recommended Hotel Julia to my friends and family members. I stayed there several times and will book it again for my trip in August.
