nice quality hotel in Rome that won't totally break the bank

by cdnagent


I am wondering if anyone can suggest a hotel that would be a solid 3-4 star in Rome that is within walking distance of many of the major tourist sites? The trip is planned for the end of September and is for two women who are in their 60's. If anyone knows of any reasonably priced hotels, I would appreciate that.

Many thanks

In my opinion the hotells in Rome are not the best solution. You can find much nicer places to stay, using the B&B and apartments system. The price is much lower and the quality much better, and you can see Rome more like italians do.
Service in hotels are not on the top in Rome and conditions are offen below of those stars they own.

We stayed at the Mercure near the Colosseum in December.

It probably meets your criteria. Check my Rome page.

Just got back from Rome. Don't let location be your deciding factor totally. Almost everything is within walking distance. I stayed at a 5 star on the Via Venetto - Ambasciatori Palace. It was nice because the location was quieter in the evening - still used ear plugs to sleep - but quieter than where we visited most nights. Also the bath rooms were great which was a priority for me. Breakfast was included and was good.
There are metro stops throughout the city so if walking is an issue check into staying near one. I talked to several people while there that were staying in apartments that were very happy with their accommodations.
Whatever you decide know that Rome is very walkable. It looks huge and widespread on a map but (with the right shoes) is very walkable.

Two B&B's I would recommend if you choose to go that route are:

Hotel Flavius: located just minutes from the coliseum. Has an awesome terrace and view of Rome. Also provides a wonderful organic breakfast. Very clean and the owner is extremely helpful.

B&B Barberini: great location! Just minutes from Trevi Fountain, lots of shopping all around. It is actually an apartment- very large and has a refrigerator which was stocked with complimentary bottled water. The owner was also extremely helpful. (I have a tip on this one in my Rome pages).

Both hotels were around 100-120 euros/night which is very reasonable for Rome. You can look them both up and book on venere.com

Have fun!

Travel Tips for Rome

The Traffic---Pazzo!

by paulapes

I don't think it would be classified as my fondest memory, but I found the traffic and parking in the city to be very intriguing. It seemed to me as though the city was set up with no plan whatsoever....wherever they wanted to put a building, they put it! Consequently, everything seems to be jumbled and crazy. The traffic is amazing, whizzing between these buildings in little alleys, inches from the parked vehicles on both sides---pazzo!! One day my sister and I were waiting for Sergio, and a man came along and proceeded to park in a tiny spot right in front of us. He rocked back and forth, bumping the cars in front and in back of him, for a couple of minutes....when he finally finished and got out of the car, we gave him a round of applause! He naturally took a bow and we all laughed!! It was so silly.....here is a picture of the normal parking in Rome with one of those funny little 3-wheel cars I mentioned previously.

The Fountain with the Turtles.

by chiara76

It is very nice Fountain, in my opinion one of the most beautiful fountains in the whole Rome.

It was projected by Giacomo della Porta but it was built in years 1581- 1588 with the help of Taddeo Landini who did the sculptures of the boys. Almost 100 years later unknown artist did the sculpures of the turtles.

Ciampino airport to Rome city

by traveller1234blog

You will be mislead by the private bus companies at the Rome airport and end up paying 14 Euros to reach rome city. COTRAL runs bus service for 1.5 Euros to Anangina Metro station. From Anangina you can buy metro day pass or Buy ticket worth 1 Euro.

On the quality of food

by meteorologist1

This is a general tip about restaurants in Rome. They are pretty expensive, and the service is not very good when there are a lot of people eating.

Also, the drinks are way overpriced in Rome and anywhere in Italy. For example, in a restaurant near a tourist attraction, you will have to pay 2 euros for a 0.5 liter drinking water, 5 euros for a 1liter drinking water. And soft drinks..don't expect big American sized and free refills. 2-3 euros for just a can of Coke or Fanta.
