Best for Groups

Hotel Hiberia

The Hotel Hiberia is a 3-star hotel in an amazing location, just steps away from the Quirinal Palace and Trajan’s Markets. If you like walking, you can get to most sights from here on foot, and the no.40 bus for the Vatican stops across the road.

The rooms aren’t huge, but if you are just looking for a place to sleep, this is a great choice for groups. Friends traveling together can ask for rooms to be made up as twins or the beds to be pushed together as doubles for couples. 

Best Budget-Friendly

Domus Helena Guesthouse

Situated between Piazza Vittorio Emanuele and Via Merulana, this guesthouse is owned by a local religious order. It is one of the cheap hotels in Rome and is also clean, quiet, and 10 minutes on foot from Termini Station.

The guesthouse is on a quiet street in a multicultural area. You’ll find plenty of bars, international restaurants, and one of Rome’s largest food markets each morning (except Sundays) close.

The main sites are easy to reach by metro (the Vittorio Emanuele stop is a few minutes away) or bus. If you prefer walking, the Colosseum and San Giovanni are both 15 minutes away.

Best for Single Travelers

Hotel Marcella Royal

The upmarket neighborhood where Marcella Royal is situated is close to the British Embassy, the Bank of Italy, and the Ministry of Finance. The area is safe, has plenty of bars and restaurants, and is a 15-minute walk from both Termini and Galleria Borghese.

Expect a friendly welcome and choice of rooms, including singles and the slightly more expensive economy double. The hotel has a roof terrace where breakfast is served in the morning, and you can watch the sun set over an aperitivo in the evening.

Best for Families

Hotel Kolbe

This 17th-century former convent is just a few minutes walk from the Circus Maximus and offers rooms with a view of the Palatine Hill or its peaceful internal garden. There are dedicated family rooms, some with beds on one level, others with a mezzanine floor to give teenagers their own space.

For larger families, there’s the additional option of interconnecting rooms. Children of all ages are welcome here and can run around the garden while you watch from the restaurant. For parents traveling with babies, the hotel can provide everything you might need for your stay, from cribs and strollers to bottle warmers and baby baths. 

You can easily reach the ancient sites on foot. There are also many bus stops close by and a metro stop on the other side of the Circus Maximus. In the evenings, a short walk will bring you to the former Jewish Ghetto, where you’ll find plenty of restaurants in an area with limited traffic.

Best for Couples

Villa Agrippina Gran Meliá 

There are a lot of luxury hotels in Rome, but the Villa Agrippina Gran Meliá offers idyllic seclusion from the chaotic bustle of the city just a 15-minute walk from the Vatican. As well as impeccable service, guests at the resort can enjoy the outdoor pools, stunning views, a spa, and fine dining at the Follie restaurant.

While you relax, let the staff organize all the tickets, tours, reservations, and transportation to give you a 5-star experience in Rome. 

Best Boutique

Hotel Maalot 

The enviable location of the Hotel Maalot is what you are looking for if you want to be in boutique hotels in Rome and in the heart of the city. With the Trevi Fountain a stone’s throw away (and the Pantheon and Spanish Steps are not much further), an almost constant flow of tourists outside is expected. Still, once inside, you’ll find a calm atmosphere, attentive staff, eclectic design, and soundproofed windows.

Best for Business

Hilton Rome EUR

Most business travelers to Rome want to be near the airport or in EUR, the southern district where many companies are based and home to Rome’s new conference center. The area has a very different vibe from the city center. Long, perfectly straight boulevards end in massive fascist-era reinterpretations of ancient architecture, including the Colosseum and Pantheon.

The newly opened Hilton Rome EUR is in the middle of EUR, a short walk from the contemporary La Nuvola, the lake, and the metro. With the Colosseum just 20 minutes away, the Hilton Rome EUR is the best area to stay in Rome if you are on a business trip.

Best Near the Colosseum

Hotel Lancelot

If you’re looking for reasonable pricing near the Colosseum, you’ll want to know about the family-owned Hotel Lancelot. On the top floor of this 3* hotel, the rooms come with views of the Colosseum. There are also rooms perfect for families with 1 or 2 kids and a room with wheelchair access.

Guests can choose to dine at the hotel (half board options available for stays of 3+ nights), which is a sociable occasion and a chance to meet other travelers. 

Best Near the Vatican

Hotel della Conciliazione

For an accessible option close to Vatican City, look no further than Hotel della Conciliazione. Situated in the Borgo, on one of the streets surrounding Vatican City, the hotel has a street-level entrance into the lobby, dedicated rooms with wheelchair access, and is one of the closest hotels to St. Peter’s Basilica.

Best Near the Spanish Steps

Hotel de Russie

If you want the chance to rub shoulders with the stars, Hotel de Russie is the place to stay. This legendary 5 star hotel in Rome is in luxury shopping districts, close to Piazza di Spagna and Piazza del Popolo. But the highlight of this luxury retreat has to be the spectacular terraced garden, home to one of the most romantic bars in the city.

Internal rooms come with beautiful views of the garden, or you can treat yourselves to a stay in the Nijinsky Suite, one of the best places to stay in Rome, where you can enjoy stunning rooftop views of Rome from your private terrace.

Best in Trastevere

Horti 14

Hidden in a quiet street of the lively Trastevere neighborhood, Horti14 is a converted warehouse inspired by Rome’s Botanical Gardens that run along one side of the property.  Designed using natural materials and decorated with leaves and plants, Horti 14 is a relaxing escape from the chaos of the city. You can see a lot of the city from here on foot.

Minutes away is the wonderful Villa Farnesina, renowned for Rafael’s frescoes in the loggia; the Vatican is 20 minutes down the road, and Campo dè Fiori is on the other side of the river.

Insider Tips

  • Check the bed carefully before booking. It’s not unusual for double rooms to come with twin beds that are pushed together for couples. If you want a king-sized bed, look at 4- or 5-star hotels and check if you need to upgrade.
  • Don’t expect air conditioning to be like you’re used to at home. Hotels should have A/C, but by law, units shouldn’t go lower than 23°C / 73°F. Like the lights, it’s likely to be on only when you are in the room, so you won’t be able to keep the room cool and ready for your return.
  • Remember to add the city tax to your budget. This isn’t included in the cost of the room and is collected in cash when you check-in. This is paid per person, per night for the first 10 nights, and the amount depends on the level of the hotel.
  • Check where the hotel is on a map before you book. If you are coming by car, you might appreciate accommodation outside the ZTL (a limited traffic zone where non-residents risk getting fined) with parking. If not, you don’t want to get a nasty shock by discovering you are several bus rides away from the sights.
