Hotels

Rates usually lower significantly during the winter months (from November to March, excluding Christmas period). Always check for special promotions and look for the facilities you really need (for instance a car park or the air-conditioning) and the kindness of the staff (which is what makes the difference when you are in a foreign country and you might need assistance. In fact this is the main reason to chose an hotel instead of an alternative accommodation: a reliable 24 hr service at your disposal!)

  • Albergo Cesàri: overlooking one of our favorite squares, Piazza di Pietra, and boasting a great terrace where breakfast is served.
  • Albergo Etico: the first hotel 100% no- profit in town and primarily staffed by personnel with disabilities. Reconverting a former convent, it has a convenient location  very close to Villa Borghese, Piazza del Popolo, Via Del Corso and the A line metro stop Flaminio. The courtyard is a nice and quiet location for a sunset drink.
  • DoubleTree by Hilton Rome Monti: brand new hotel overlooking the basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, a pleasant roof top terrace with view, a convenient location between Termini station, Metro A Repubblica and the cozy district of Monti. And their cookies are phenomenal!
  • Internazionale Domus: prestigious suites (and also some apartments) overlooking the Spanish Steps, boasting frescoed ceilings and antique furniture, next to all modern comforts
  • Hotel Lancelot : a great location (few steps from the Colosseum) and a real “family-run hotel” atmosphere.
  • Hotel Ponte Sisto: a former convent still preserving its enchanting patio, completely refurbished with all the modern facilities. A few steps from Campo de’ Fiori, Trastevere and the romantic Via Giulia.
  • Hotel Santa Maria: in the charming frame of the picturesque neighbourhood called Trastevere, this small hotel offers a cozy quiet atmosphere. Free wifi and bikes for guests. And breakfast is served in a pleasant orange tree garden!
  • Villa Spalletti Trivelli: gorgeous atmosphere in this “palazzo” still refurbished with genuine antiques. Just twelve elegant rooms, a silent garden, an exclusive wellness centre … perfect for an unforgettable stay!
