Complicating your decision is the sheer number of accommodations in the Rome area – well over 2,500 unique options. Your preferences may be driven by location, cost, comfort, transportation options, the need for a swimming pool, parking your rental car, being able to walk to all sites, or an early morning flight to FCO.

Best Accommodations near the Pantheon

Pantheon Roof Hotels & ResortsOne of the best areas to stay – especially for a first-time visitor – is near the Pantheon. Centrally located, the Pantheon area contains many restaurants, gelato spots, and many, many shopping opportunities. From here, many of Rome’s sites are easily walkable.

Best Accommodations at Piazza Navona

Piazza Navona Rome Hotels & ResortsCertainly one of the more popular parts of town to stay in is Piazza Navona. It is centrally located, and if you get 2-3 blocks away, far less touristy than you would imagine. In fact, as you walk on the small, narrow streets near the Piazza, you can easily imagine yourself in a hill town, far from Rome. No cars, no traffic – it’s hard to believe you’re in the middle of a city of 3 million people. Read more…




Best Accommodations at the Trevi Fountain

Trevi Fountain Hotels & ResortsImmortalized in film and print, the Trevi Fountain is a must-see for many first-time visitors to Rome. Since many of the buildings in this area date from the 17th and 18th century, you won’t find large hotels. Many of the accommodations on this list have less than 10 rooms – some less than five. Because this is such a popular location, and with the smaller hotels and B&B’s, if you plan on staying here you might need to book early. Read more…


Best Accommodations at the Spanish Steps

Spanish Steps photo Hotels & ResortsThe Spanish Steps area is also one of the “most posh” parts of Rome. Here you will see stores with designer names, tourist-seeking vendors, and narrow, cobblestone streets. It’s quite a contrast. The Spanish Steps are well-known as a destination for many first-time travelers to Rome. In the evening, the Steps often become a gathering spot for weary tourists. Read more…

Looking at hotels near the Colosseo, we’ll also include the Monti area. Monti is the name of the first of the twelve Rioni of Rome. The Monti area is quite diverse and as the name refers, often hilly! Read more…


Best Accommodations in the Prati-Vatican Area

st. peters audience hotels Hotels & ResortsI guess I have a soft spot for the Vatican and Prati area. We lived in an apartment for 2+ years on Via Candia, about one block from the entrance to the Vatican Museums. The shops, cafes, restaurants, internet stores, markets, bus and metro stops all became familiar friends. We found the location quiet and less touristy in the evenings than the centro part of town. And with the many bus and metro connections we easily could get downtown. Read more…

Best Accommodations in Trastevere

Trastervere Scene Pictures 1 small Hotels & ResortsTrastevere is a beautiful part of Rome, and one of our favorite places to head to. The name, Trastevere, literally means “across (or over) the Tiber.” Here you’ll find narrow streets seemingly from the medieval period. With smaller streets and picturesque lanes, this area has a unique personality.

Best Accommodations Near the Roma Termini Station

Bus 64 Roma termini Hotels & ResortsOften, many people stay near the Roma Termini for an easier train or airport connection.

Folks also stay in the Termini area because it’s as inexpensive as anywhere you can stay in Rome. There are more than 400 hotels in the Roma Termini area and to see the best-rated, Read more…

Renting an Apartment in Rome – Our Experience and Some Tips

Apartment Rome small Hotels & ResortsRenting an apartment is certainly different than getting a hotel room. When you rent an apartment, you’re flying solo. No concierge handy to answer questions or do a booking for you. No on-site manager or staff to assist you – like you’d get at a B&B, pensione, or hotel. You get the keys, a brief introduction to the area and the apartment… and then you’re pretty much on your own. But there are some HUGE advantages, and for some helpful hints on booking an apartment, Read more…
