The American writer Anotole Broyard reckoned that ‘Rome was a poem pressed into service as a city.’

The Hotel Espana is a relaxed establishment located in a stylish 1920s villa building.
The seventeen guest rooms at Hotel Espana are all particularly quiet, ensuring guests have a good night’s sleep. Each ensuite guest room is equipped with air conditioning, WiFi, LCD TV with satellite, mini bar and hot drinks facilities.
It is just a hundred metres from the Manzoni metro station and in a neighbourhood handy for exploring the city’s ancient monuments.
There is no shortage of dining options close to your hotel and hotel staff can offer restaurant recommendations.
Let’s not kid ourselves here, you are never going to see all that Rome has to offer in three days. Instead, take a stroll and soak up the atmosphere of this unique city, and get a sense of its classical origins from street level.
Resist the urge to overdose on history and culture and focus on one or two attractions during each day of your stay. Cinema enthusiasts will be keen to spot all the classic movie locations from the Trevi Fountain to the Spanish Steps, and will also want to take the metro journey out to the iconic Cinecitta studios.
The Sistine Chapel and the outstanding art collections of the Borghese and Doria Pamphilj Galleries will be a highlight for many, but are understandably popular.
Visitors looking for a less crowded cultural experience should head for the hip northern Rome quarter of Flaminio and the cavernous curves of the striking modern MAXXI gallery designed by Zaha Hadid.
The Hotel Espana has attracted plenty of positive feedback on TripAdvisor. These are recent reviews, edited for length:
‘Good small hotel. Our room was small but spotlessly clean, lovely fluffy white towels. On the top floor so lots of stairs as no lift. Ten minute walk from Metro. Lots of restaurants nearby and supermarket across the road.’
‘Nice hotel. The hotel was nice, the room smaller for my taste but it was cleaned daily, which is good… The positioning is very good; fifteen to twenty minute walk to the Colosseum. The hotel was quiet and close to the train station. You can find metro station nearby.’
‘Decent rooms and clean hotel… The hotel is away from the hustle bustle of the city and close to a metro so that you can reach anywhere easily.’
You can hardly go wrong with a break in one of the world’s great cities. Today’s Big Deal break to Rome provides direct flights and a handy and hospitable base right in the heart of the action.
Whether you have a hankering for culture, classical antiquities, romance or just a decent ice-cream, all roads lead to Rome.
