Affordable and convenient hotel in Rome
We stayed in Una Hotel Roma for 3 nights in a triple room. We picked this hotel because we want somewhere more centrally located but cost under $100 per person. Other hotels we looked at in this price range tend to be older or smaller hotels. Since we had to travel by train, we decided to pick a hotel closer to the train station. An added benefit is that there are cheap transportation from the airport to the train station.
The hotel is located 1 block from Stazione Termini on a quiet street (about 5 minutes walk, even with luggage). We haven't wandered around the neighbourhood much, though we seem to be on the "nicer" side of the train station. We felt very safe walking to the hotel at any time of the day. The hotel itself was pretty new, so the decor is pretty clean and modern. The triple room we had was pretty large for European standards and can fit 3 beds nicely with lots of room for our luggage. Our general impression is that the place was very nice and clean and the staff were quite friendly. Breakfast was included in the room rate and the spread was pretty good.
More on the location - the metro stop is right next to the train station, so it is also convenient to get around the city. There is also a shopping mall inside the train station and we were able to get groceries easily. I think the supermarket (Conrad's) is open from 7am to 10pm.
All in all, if you're looking for a hotel in the $100 pp range in a convenient location, this is a pretty decent choice. Great location. Good breakfast. Pretty good value for money.
