Roma

Image
Its hot in here but bearable since it is kind of windy, and all the stores are air conditioned  I just love shopping in Italy, they are so friendly and they never say no to anything you ask for. Like now, in the summer time, they don't have all the winter collection on display, but when you ask to see some of the items they received they will show it to you right away. and I even like the selection of clothes they have in stores, thog-hoom ghair.  I Love Italy

Our Hotel in Rome

Image
Buongiorno Tutti (Hello All - in Italain), we have arrived, it was a quick flight from Geneva to Rome, one hour only, that was nice. We booked our tickets with Fly Babbothey are like Jazzear Airways of Kuwait , ashwa 6ayaratna ma kanat marawe7, we were scared of that, because usually they utilize these types of planes for short destinations, but we flew with Alitalia plane, which was a normal plane.

Now the hotel ... this is the first time for us to stay in Babuino 181 - Rome Luxury Suites , it is a very small one, located in the city center, we can reach the Spanish Steps walking, no need for a taxi, all stores and restaurants are near.


Above you can see the small entrance of the hotel and below is the  reception, tiny I know but very cozy



And here is our room (my sister and I)





Ahhh my favorite Coffee Nespresso , but that one looks different than the capsules I use. Tried it, easy, same steps to prepare a cup of coffee.


The picture below is where they serve breakfast, also a small coz…
