Golden Tulip Ambra Palace is a new 4-star hotel located close to Termini Train station, Vittorio Emanuele square and the Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore. It opened in March 2001 and is the result of a complete renovation of a building that dates back to 1850.
We rented a two-bedroom which had in it tea and coffee facilities, satellite TV, in house pay movies and free use of an in room safe deposit box. As with most places we stayed in Europe, the two beds were placed together, but had separate bedding. The staff was very nice and professional. The rooms also had a desk and mini bar in it. We were suppose to have access to the internet with your own laptop, but we never figured out how to connect. The bathroom was really nice, even having a retractable clothes line across the tub.

The only draw back to this hotel was it was in a rather dirty part of town -- although I could say that about a lot of Rome! But the location -- close to the train station and metro was nice. We did find out when we were heading back to the train station that we didn't have to walk along the street too far. There was a side entrance to the station about two blocks from the hotel.

Unique Qualities: Also included in the cost of the room is a buffet breakfast, which we enjoyed very much. The buffet included everything from juices, cereals, scrambled eggs, bacon, fresh fruit and veggies, sliced meat, breads, and lots more. They also included a free welcome drink in their little American Bar -- with a great selection of drinks and free snacks to go with them. In the evening, the room where breakfast was served became a nice restaurant.
