As you already know, we spent three days in Rome. Before leaving for Rome, we had a look on the internet for good tips on blogs, like which Hotel should we book and to which restaurants should we go. Unfortunately, we didn’t find anything helpful. So I thought about giving you some tips from our experience, to have it easier to book your next Rome trip.
In a quiet corner near the “Piazza di Spagna” we booked a hotel called Mood44, it was very spontaneous only 1.5 weeks before our flight to Rome. We are always a little demanding with hotels: it should be beautiful, clean, located in the centre and not too expensive. As you know, most of the time you have to compromise and take a not so nice hotel in the centre or a beautiful hotel far away from the centre. After a long search (which was the task of my boyfriend, since I’m so impatient in booking hotels) he found the hotel Mood44. A cute little, luxurious hotel near the Piazza di Spagna. It’s a Boutique Hotel, which opened about a year ago. Every single room (they only have about 6 or 7 rooms) is different from another and furnished with love. I think it was one of the biggest rooms I’ve ever stayed in and that for only 170 euro a night. And believe me, also the bathroom (which is most of the time so tiny you can’t hardly move) was huge equipped with a rain shower. The breakfast is either served on the rooftoop or in the room. The staff (Daniela & Co) was incredibly friendly. On our arrival, we sat down with Daniela and she introduced us to the most important locations of Rome. She gave us tips where we should go for lunch and – of course -shopping.
While strolling trough the streets of Rome, we discovered a little takeaway/restaurant. In front of the unimpressive entrance a few people were sitting with a big wooden plate topped with the most delicious Italian dishes on their lunch table. Ham, salami, cheese, tomatos, different creams, nuts, bread, pesto and much more. We stopped immediately and entered. It was a very small take away, but everything seemed so familiar and so typical Italian.The atmosphere somehow reminded me of my childhood summers, which I spent in Italy at my grandparents. La Prosciutteria isn’t a restaurant (they don’t have a restaurant license) so it’s selfservice, but luckily you can sit in there and enjoy a delicious, cold Italian platters including delicious glasses of wines.
Ever wanted to eat in a restaurant, where also Kanye and Kim, Mischa Barton or Karl Lagerfeld already enjoyed dinner? So you have to visit Dal Bolognese in Rome. Since my boyfriends parents have been in Rome for a few times, they recomended us this restaurant. It’s a little expensive, but believe me, the fillet of beef was super delicious! Actually one of the best I’ve ever had (except the fillet at the Bürgli in Zürich, but this might be subject of another little guide about Zürich).
Thx to the lovely German blogger called Cocoaroundthecorner (her blog is amazing) we found the restaurant Numbs. A very stylish restaurant near the shopping street. The service was super fast and the lasagne and the truffle risotto were delicious!
Thx to an Italian reader, we ate a super delicous gelato near the piazza de fiori. This ice cream parlor called Sweety Gelato is concepted like a frozen yoghurt parlor, but not only with frozen yoghurt also with traditional ice cream. It was so yummi!
