Cool off in Rome with Radisson SAS

Rome’s Radisson SAS offers a welcome addition to the city’s selection of dated accomodations.

Rome’s hotels can be dated and horribly expensive compared to equivalent accommodation in other European capitals. And few properties offer guests use of a hotel swimming pool. One exception is the recently opened 235-room Radisson SAS Es located near the city’s main Termini train station. This new build property, designed in minimalist style, provides up-to-date facilities including free broadband including wi-fi. It also boasts a 20 metre long open air rooftop swimming pool (open June 1 to September 24) enabling guests to cool off during the city’s sweltering summer months.

This area may not be the most attractive but it is convenient for travellers arriving by train either from other domestic destinations or from the city’s main Fiumicino airport. Rome Termini is also the arrival point for the airport buses coming in from the city’s secondary Ciampino airport which is used by budget carriers Ryanair and Easyjet.
