We are considering staying in a hotel located on on Via Sardegna near the US Embassy. It's not exactly near all the must-see attractions, but I would be able to use hotel points I have for essentially a free 3-night stay---hard to pass up. This hotel has a sister hotel near the Colosseum, but it has gotten mixed reviews so I'm hesitant to stay there.
I don't mind doing some walking (I plan on doing a lot of that in Italy anyway), but for anyone who might be more familiar with Rome than I am, will that area just be too far out? Nearest Metro stops look to be Barbarini and Republica.
In conjunction with that, I considered trying Uber for the first time as a way to bridge the distance. I could use the service, say, between the hotel and Termini.
Anyone used Uber in Rome?
I'm open to thoughts or suggestions.
