So, just how many famous people have stayed at Hotel Amalia? Did the famous American thriller writer, Allan Folsom, stay here?
We have a hint of this in his book "Day of Confession" where
he writes, "In 15 minutes, Julia Phelps, or better Thomas Kind,
would have arrived in Rome. There, a taxi would have taken her from the Termini Station
at Majestic Hotel, in Via Veneto; and a few minutes later, in another tax, she would have
crossed the Tevere to arrive at Amalia, the old pensione in Via Germanico, small,
comfortable and discreet. And in addition, a stone's throw from the Vatican."
Today, Amalia Vaticano has grown into an elegant hotel, still on Via Germanico and still comfortable and discreet.
And always just a stone's throw from the Vatican.
