Best Places To Stay In Rome, Italy

By Travel Noire


While Rome is not large, it is so densely packed with culture and opportunities to find new things to enjoy every day, that you’ll definitely want to make sure your accommodations are conveniently located. Of course, days of exploring and climbing ancient steps can also leave you exhausted, so be sure to have a room that’s relaxing and provides the best in hospitality. To help you narrow your list of hotels down, we’ve found the very best.

Sweet Stay in Rome

Sweet Stay in Rome is a perfect balance of convenience—it’s located ideally, near many of the best attractions and transportation is easily available to the further out locales—and a genteel atmosphere. Very spacious, beautifully decorated, and full of friendly staff, you’ll feel right at home here. Breakfast is included, although you’ll likely opt for the countless shops.

The only downside is that its excellent location can lead to a lot of noise for the first half of the night, as tourists and revelers enjoy the nearby attractions. But if you’re looking for a combination of convenience and comfort, this is your best bet.

Enjoy a Neoclassical Hostel at Generator Hostels

If you’re looking for a fast and easy stay at a local hostel, Generator Hostels is the best value with excellent service and small but clean and beautiful room. Located within a 19th-century building, the neoclassical locale is nestled on a lively and entertaining street. You’ll be conveniently located not only from its own area’s shops and restaurants but also a mere three minutes walking distance from Termini Laziali station. This is a perfect spot for people traveling solo, or for couples who intend to spend most of their vacation on the move.

A Truly Roman Experience is Yours at Residenza Frattina

If you’d like to feel a bit more like a Roman during your stay, we recommend Residenza Frattina. Located in a charming and genteel townhouse, the environment is calm, comforting, and unassuming. While it is beautiful and quaint, it is not over the top. Nonetheless, you have access to a lounge, free breakfast, and some wonderful relaxing quiet.

But don’t let the quiet fool you. You are still only a four-minute walk away from the iconic Rome Spanish Steps, eight minutes from the Trevi Fountain, and eleven minutes from the Pantheon. Those looking for convenient walks, peace, and quiet, and a serene stay will love this location.

Added bonus: they offer free loaner bikes so you can bike to the aforementioned locations!

Choose Excellence With Central Palace Boutique

If you’re looking for a stay that offers exquisite rooms with all marble countertops, is still about ten minutes of less walking distance from the major landmarks, and rests in the heart of a bustling shopping area, choose Central Palace Boutique.

We particularly like that the rooms are elegant without excess posh and that the walks to landmarks are manageable, if further than others. You nonetheless trade a few minutes extra walk for immediately accessible shops, restaurants, and bars. The area is relatively quieter than the noisiest sections, making it a great balance.
