Hotels by areas

The historic centre is certainly the place to be to feel fully immersed in Rome’s history and culture. However, because of the walkable size of Rome and easy access to the ancient city centre, there are many options for accommodation in other areas. Depending on the experience you are seeking and the budget available for your stay in Rome, the following regions or the historic centre will have something to make your Roman holiday just perfect.

 

Best Location Hotels recommends staying as close to the historic centre as possible, but these areas will also provide easy access to the very best of Rome.

 

Piazza Navona


Quite central and an easy walk to the ancient city, the Piazza Navona features stunning Baroque architecture, ornate fountains, delectable cafes and restaurants as well as beautiful views of Rome. There is a wide range of hotels available in these regions that are suitable for all budgets.

 

Campo de Fiori


Literally meaning the Field of Flowers, this region is absolutely picturesque and has always been a vibrant meeting place. It is recommended to rent an apartment in this area to really immerse yourself in the local culture and the excellent range of bakeries, cafes and restaurants throughout the day. 

 

The Pantheon


An absolute historical architectural gem, staying near the Pantheon will offer unparalleled views of this site in Rome. Accommodation in this area is quite central to the other major sites in Rome and there are many comfortable hotels available. Hotels close to the Pantheon are generally quite pricey but a very worthwhile experience to be so close to such a famous site if you have the budget for it.

 

Villa Borghese and Via Veneto


Just east to the historic centre, this area is quite exclusive and is an easy ten minute walk to the main historic sites. There are many fancy hotels that will make your time in Rome unforgettable, if you have the budget to afford it. This is a perfect destination for an ideal romantic getaway while in Rome.

 

The Colosseum


In the southern tip of the ancient city you will find the Colosseum and the Roman Forum. Accommodation here is mostly in small establishments ranging from family run bed and breakfasts to boutique hotels that blend in with the streets. A village like atmosphere can be felt in this area as the streets are lined with small cafes and oriental restaurants.

 

The Vatican


Generally a must see destination for people traveling to Rome, The Vatican has many hotels and accommodations around it, mostly to the east. This area is generally quieter in the evenings but there are a number of bed and breakfast style accommodation as well as hotels. The Vatican is well connected to the main sites of Rome with buses regularly going to and from the area.

 

Trastevere


Here you will find more of a neighbourhood feel which makes it a great place to stay. A little way out of the main historical centre, staying in what is closer to a suburb will give a rather non-typical feel to a Roman holiday. The streets are lined with multicultural restaurants, authentic Italian pizza places, churches, museums and shops.

 

Termini


A little further out of the historic centre, Termini is Rome’s main train station which gives perfect access to all parts of the city and country. The western side of the Termini is better for site seeing and shopping. The station gives direct access to a number of historical sites on the train line, including stops at the Colosseum, the Vatican and the Spanish steps. There are many options for accommodation available and somewhat more affordable because of the distance away from the main historic centre.
