We spent 3 nights in this great hotel. It had a really nice breakfast area (outside on a terrace) a sun bathing/relaxation area on the roof, and is located just 2 minutes walk from the main square in the city. We found this hotel was one of the better hotels we stayed in while in Italy, and would be quick to recommmend it to anyone. It is well priced, and the people working there are great. We were given an extra large room when we told them we were honeymooners!
Directions: Just off Piazza del Tasso, down Corso Italia (on right hand side)
I am travelling with my family to Italy, the age group of people travelling is very varied. I am travelling with husband, 17 month old baby and my mother in law.
DO you recommend living in a hostel or hotel
Can you please recommend cheap and safe accomodation in the following cities.
I would say hotel. Go to venere.com or hotels.com (hotels.com is having a rebate sale). If you can't find it. Search hotels.com rebate
These are not cheap hotels, but I recommend them. Rome: Hotel Del Corso, Sorrento: Hotel Settimiecelo (sp?), Venice: Hotel Al Leon www.hotelalleon.com
Rome: Hotel Italia, Via Venezia
Naples: Hole Albergo del Golfo (excellent value for money)
Venice: Hotel Spagna
All are good budget priced hotels and can all be booked on
www.venere.com or www.bookings.com
Both websites mentioned above are what I would recommend and use.
I don't think a hostel would be a comfortable experience with a baby, although some do have individual rooms.
Hotel Domus Praetoria in Rome is really excellent value: www.domushotel.com
Hotel Savoia in Sorrento is equally good (lovely pancakes for breakfast): http://www.savoia-hotel.com/public/sito/EN/default.asp
I have details about both on my Rome/Sorrento pages.
Don't expect to find really cheap accommodation in the places you mention. Cheaper places may well be some distance from the town/city centre, so consider that additional cost when you are diciding where to stay. Hotel rooms in Europe, especially Italy, tend to be smaller than those you might be used to elsewhere.
I would suggest that you book your accommodation before you travel, especially in the high season. You don't want to be stuck trying to find somewhere with a baby. Venice, Florence and Rome are busy all year round.
Hotel. www.booking.com and www.alpharooms.com are good and reliable sites. We stayed at the Hotel Mignon Meuble in Sorrento, which is central and very reasonable and I would unequivocably recommend it. You don't say for how long you are staying in each place but looking at apartments might be an option. If we are going away for over a week, then that is what we do.
I liked the Hotel Christoferu Colombo in genoa. Cheapish and close to the palazzo Ducale.
