Cheap Hotels in Central (ish) Rome

by lee547

Hi, can anyone advise on which areas (or specific hotel recommendations) I should look at for a hotel/hostel on a budget for 3 nights in APril?
Its my first visit with my girlfriend and I would like to be within reasonable walking distance of everything.

Thank you and kind regards.

I suggest you look at for hotels/guesthouses etc (you can order results by price). It lists all rome hotels, has hionest reviews and good mapping (and is entirely reliable). and will give you hostels, location, reviews etc.

Hostels will be your cheapest option, and there are some very nice ones (some with separate rooms).

Termini is the major area for cheaper accommodation. I always stay in that area, because it is so very convenient for walking around central historical Rome (which is very compact anyway, and easily walkable). the colosseum is around 20 minutes walk from Termini station, to give you an idea. The area is also extremely convenient for the airport (transport from either airport terminates there), for public transport (bus/tram/Metro) and for buying transport passes (3-day pass = 11 euro, excellent value, from the booths at Termini bus station).

But Termini, like all the areas around large stations in Europe, has its odd characters and its seedy side. I have never had any problems, nor felt uncomfortable (English middle-aged female always travelling alone) but some people do not like it.

I last stayed at the Domus Praetoria hotel, which was excellent but may be outide your budget (I got a deal ...check venere).

Otherwise, if you stay anywhere within the immediate central area of Rome you will find it very walkable. Check the maps on the websites above for each place which seems attractive.

I can recommend Hotel Sonya, in front of the Opera Theater and close to Termini station. We paid 80 euros per night per room in Dec 2008 but maybe has better deals.

It's always worth checking venere and the hotel's own site before booking (same with all booking sites). Most times I've found venere is cheaper, but not always.....sometimes the hotel itself has a deal.

I can recommend the Hotel Selene, great location near Termini/Republica/Opera House. Check the booking websites or contact them for offers:

Please remember that Easter falls at the beginning of April this year (2nd April - 5th April) so if you are planning your trip for around that time you may struggle to book anything if you leave it much longer as Rome is especially busy then.

Have a lovely trip.

I always recommend The Beehive. It is a hostel/hotel with reasonable rates and and a pretty good location not too far from Termini Station. They have dorm style rooms, if you want the hostel experience. Or, they have private apartments.

Happy Travels!

Travel Tips for Rome

There are simply so many...

by scooter3

There are simply so many amazing sights to see in this city... My favorite part of being here was not following a map at all and coming accross the Forum for the first time... It is so amazing how the old and the new mix together so well in this city... There is so much ancient history all around you, yet the way they have built around these ruins, etc you would barely even notice it... All I did was walk everywhere in this city and I must say there isn't an ugly street or corner... It seemed every corner I turned I came accross some small little cafe or some enchanting square... I definitely suggest getting absolutely lost in this city This picture is one view of the Forum, and in the distance is the Palatine, which you have to pay to get in to, but it gives you an excellent view of the city, especially around Sunset...

Bocce in Borghese

by icunme

Just off to the right of the Gallery Borghese, with Pincio in the background, you'll find a few of Rome's old timers playing bocce on any given day. Peacefully in view - yet unseen by the tourists gathered in line at the Gallery. Enclosed and marked off by pieces of wood laid rather shallow - a rough turf that perhaps just adds to the challenge - enough of a challenge that there were a few locals watching the game with great interest from benches off to the side.

Great Italian gifts

by martin_nl about OMAI Now Or Never

Most things for sale here are women's clothes but they also have a section with very nice gifts. For you mother or girlfriend/wife you can buy a beautiful shawl and for your father or boyfriend/husband you can buy espresso cups and beautiful mugs. Of course there are many other things, so take a good look around. Fantastic staff. There weren't enough espresso cups, so they called to the other OMAI shop in Rome and asked if they still had the cups, and they did. We thought we had to get the cups ourselves in the other shop, but one employee went on his scooter to bring us the cups, now that's what I call good service!! If you want to laugh ask them to wrap the cups and saucers as a present :D It takes ages but is really funny indeed!!! Shawls are 20 or 32 euro and the espresso cups with saucer are 7 euro.

Old World Charm with Great Food

by von.otter about Ristorante Ranieri

“Being pregnant is an occupational hazard of being a wife.”
— Queen Victoria (1819-1901)

Located on a side street near the Piazza di Spagna, the quiet, dignified Ristorante Ranieri has been favored by the locals and royals for decades. Members of the royal houses of Italy, Spain, Austria, Germany, Sweden, Greece and Russia have signed the restaurant’s guest book after enjoying the cooking prepared by Giuseppe Ranieri and his direct descendants. An Italian-French menu is served; and the portions are large. The romantic atmosphere in the rooms is Old World, with velvet banquettes, crystal chandeliers and experienced, professional waiters. This is the place to celebrate a special occasion.

Renowned for its fine cuisine, this centrally located restaurant’s recipes have been handed down from Giuseppe Ranieri, who was once chef to Queen Victoria. Her Majesty sent Ranieri to Mexico to help Emperor Maximilian cope, through good food, with his untamed American empire. Affairs did not go well; and the chef accompanied Empress Charlotte to Rome where she appealed to the pope for help, which was not forthcoming. Remaining in the Eternal City, in 1865 Ranieri bought an establishment that had been opened in 1843 by a Frenchman.

The restaurant’s fame is touted in literature. Paul Bourget refers to it in “Cosmopolis;” Anatole French does likewise in “Sur la Pierre blanche;” and Destrée mentions it in “Italie avant la guerre.” André Gide and Stendhal write about this restaurant as well. Start your meal with a crêpe Suisse, a thin pancake rolled around a symphony of eight different cheeses, then browned in the oven. Desserts are worth saving room for, and the restaurant's rustico di cioccolato is a treat.
