AddressVia Cola di Rienzo, 243, 00192 Roma RM, Italy
Phone+39 06 324 1872
This small hotel is just two blocks from the Vatican. Although it's a three-star with only 18 rooms, it offers a number of amenities such as laundry and babysitting services. A room for two in non-peak periods runs about $100 USD/night. Their website isn't always dependable, so it might require sending an email to get current rates and reservations.
AddressD'Azeglio, Via d'Azeglio, 24, 00184 Roma RM, Italy
Phone+39 06 4893 9942
This three-star property is located about three blocks from the Termini (main) railroad station and offers a free breakfast and comfortable rooms. Special offers include an early-booking deal from $85/night. Rates climb at the end of December and in the summer tourist season.
AddressVia Luigi Luzzatti, 21, 00185 Roma RM, Italy
Phone+39 06 4543 5343
Some directories call this a three-star hotel, but the management considers it a two-star. In either case, don't expect a great deal of added style or comfort. This is a place to spend the night. Rooms are updated but the furnishings are pretty basic. It's located within walking distance of three metro stops and not far from the main railroad station.
AddressVia Gioberti, 36, 00185 Roma RM, Italy
Phone+39 06 446 6917
This four-star is within a few hundred meters of the Termini (main) railroad station and close to subway connections, too. It offers amenities you'd expect in a four-star such as room service and a business center, yet rates for a standard room are just above $100/night at many times of year.
Here is a four-star that is within walking distance of the fashionable Via Veneto and the Villa Borghese. Rates of $100-$120 USD are available at various times of the year. This hotel offers 53 rooms and most of the amenities you'd expect in a four-star, with the exception of spacious rooms.
AddressVia Quarto Negroni, 46, 00040 Ariccia RM, Italy
Phone+39 06 934 0122
This place did not inspire the famous Eagles song, but it is a centrally located three-star property in a historic building that was renovated in 2003. You won't find luxury, but there are convenient connections to city transportation and the main train station. Rates often come in under $150/night.
AddressVia Leone Dehon, 71, 00165 Roma RM, Italy
Phone+39 06 632252
If you're willing to skip a room with a view of the Basilica, you can get a "last minute rate" by booking here at least 10 days in advance of visit. The cost will put you right at your $150/night limit, but this hotel offers superb location near the Vatican combined with the quiet that comes from a surrounding "green area." If you're willing to make a non-refundable reservation, you can save 10 percent or more on the room rate. The hotel is rated at four stars.
AddressVia Dei Cappuccini 30, 00187 Rome, RM, Italy
Phone+39 06 4201 6331
Here's an opportunity to stay at a four-star property in one of Rome's finest locations. Situated on the Via Veneto and walking distance from the Barberini metro stop. The hotel inhabits an 800-year-old mansion. A single room can cost as little as $60/night, and there's a wide range for doubles ($80-$225). You'll pay for parking separately.
AddressVia Principe Amedeo, 64, 00185 Roma RM, Italy
Phone+39 06 481 8214
Here's a three-star property within a short walk of a metro stop and not far from the main railroad station and the attractions of central Rome. A buffet breakfast is served in the dining room each morning. As with most properties in Rome, rates increase dramatically during Christian holidays and in the busy summer months. Plan accordingly.
AddressVia Vittoria Colonna, 28, 00193 Roma RM, Italy
Phone+39 06 686 1734
Located near the Vatican and the Riverwalk, rates at the Hotel Diplomatic often are listed starting in the $200/night range. But a "classic" rather than "superior" room can be about half that price, depending upon the time of year and market conditions. It's worth checking to see if this well-regarded hotel has rooms available in your price range.
