Rome Hotel - Teatro di Pompeo

Message: The Hotel Teatro di Pompeii in Rome has been recommended to us. Notations about it in Fodor's are more than 3 year's old.

From anyone who has been there recently:

-Were you satisfied?
-Our budget is $200 a night-are we in the ball park?
-How is location?
-Is it air-conditioned?

Is Rome in mid-June bearable as to weather?

Grazie.

I just booked there for April at a rate of 190 euro based upon travel planner Jim Zurer's remarks on the website Slow Travel. You could search that website for his remarks if interested. The Teatro di Pompeo is also briefly, but favorably mentioned in the book, Rome in Detail.

Although this will be my first time to stay at the hotel, I have noticed it while walking in the Campo dei Fiori area. The location seemed great to me because I prefer a hotel near the Pantheon and Piazza Navona and of course the Campo dei Fiori is a pleasure to visit for the famed market, and there is also a fabulous forno, whose name now escapes me and the fantastic restaurant, Ditarambo. The hotel does have a/c which you will appreciate in mid-June in Rome.

If you are considering it, I would book ASAP since there are only 12 rooms.

My wife and I plus another couple stayed at Hotel Teatro di Pompeii for 3 nights in Sept. 2003. It is centrally located, in the heart of a very Roman area on a small square which can be noisy. Noise and heat are not a problem as the hotel is air conditioned and very quite. Alajan comments about the Pantheon, Piazza Navona and Campo de Fiori are right on the mark.
Hope this helps....Bob

Thanks, Alajan and Bob. You confirm what my daughter and son-in-law found in Teatro di Pompeii. It is my first visit to Rome and this hotel sounds ideal.

My wife and I spend time each year in Provence and France. Though I am partially of Italian ancestry, France has become a second home. All paths, however, lead to Rome and I thank you both for the information.

I've only walked by it but the section the hotel is in still follows the ancient curve of the 'Theater of Pompey', you'll see it when you get there .
Go to www.vroma.org/images/raia_images/pompeyrecon.GIF
see the curve of the theater at the bottom of the photo, the hotel is on the leftside of the curve.
In the top section of the photo see the single bldg in the center with the 4 temples behind it.
The single bldg is the Curia Pompey where Julius Caesar was murdered.
Those 4 temples are visible today, the 1st two on the left are partially rebuilt, the 3rd is basically just the podium/fountation and the 4th is mostly still under the modern street in the 'Largo di Torre Argentina'. Regards, Walter

One of my favorite restaurants in Rome is Pancrazio, right across from the hotel mentioned. If you go into their cellar you can see remnants of the place where Julius Ceasar was killed.
