01 of 10

Hotel Florida

Via Cola di Rienzo, 243, 00192 Roma RM, Italy
+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.

02 of 10

Augusta Lucilla Palace

D'Azeglio, Via D'Azeglio, 24, 00184 Roma RM, Italy
+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.

03 of 10

Hotel Espana

Via Luigi Luzzatti, 21, 00185 Roma RM, Italy
+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.

04 of 10

Paladium Palace

Via Gioberti, 56, 00185 Roma RM, Italy
+39 06 446 6918

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.

Executive Hotel

Via Aniene, 3, 00198 Roma RM, Italy
+39 06 853 7669

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.

06 of 10

Hotel California

Via Quarto Negroni, 46, 00040 Ariccia RM, Italy
+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.

07 of 10

Cardinal Hotel Saint Peter

Via Leone Dehon, 71, 00165 Roma RM, Italy
+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.

08 of 10

La Piccola Maison

Via dei Cappuccini, 30, 00187 Roma RM, Italy
+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.

Hotel Serena

Via Principe Amedeo, 64, 00185 Roma RM, Italy
+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.

10 of 10

Hotel Diplomatic

Via Vittoria Colonna, 28, 00193 Roma RM, Italy
+39 06 686 1734

Located near the Vatican and the Riverwalk, rates at the HotelĀ 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.
