All products are independently selected by our editors. If you buy something, we may earn an affiliate commission.

Rome may be an ancient city, but its hotel scene is as up-to-date as befits the capital of Italy . The city's options span an eclectic mix of design, glamour, and all-out Italian inspiration: A high-minded hostel that’s halfway to being a hotel, the opportunity to bed down in a former monastery, a couple of private penthouse residences with discreet, as-you-please service, and plenty of blow-out luxury abodes, from art-filled villas to sleek new brand-names. To help you get started, we've rounded up the best hotels in Rome, whether you're seeking the best view of the Eternal City or a high-end hostel. Here are our favourite places to stay, to bookmark for your next trip.

What are the best affordable hotels in Rome?

Some of our favourite affordable stays tend to be boutique boltholes and guesthouses, like Passepartout , a modern guesthouse located steps from Piazza Navona. The Hoxton Rome is another great option, found at the base of the elegant Parioli neighbourhood, with enough distance from the crowded city centre but still within close proximity to the city’s most coveted sights. See our pick of the best affordable hotels in Rome for more options.

First in: Bulgari Hotel Roma Arrow

Featured on our 2024 Hot List of the best new hotels in the world

Bulgari opened its flagship store on Via Condotti back in 1905, and has finally unveiled a crown jewel flagship hotel in its hometown. Every inch of this instantly venerable institution, a stone’s throw from Augustus’s mausoleum, is adorned with museum-worthy pieces: handcrafted mosaics from Friuli, handblown lamps from Venice’s Murano and Gio Ponti Ginori icons from the 1930s. It all comes with next-level modern comforts: custom mattresses and bedding with a pillow menu; bathtubs fit for a Roman emperor under mosaics in the design of a Bulgari brooch; Dyson hairdryers; and a 21st-century lighting system that’s gratifyingly easy to use. There’s a Niko Romito restaurant (he helms a place in Casadonna with three Michelin stars, and oversees most Bulgari restaurants); a spa with a columned Roman-bath-styled pool; jet-lag-cancelling massages; and a terrace bar with hundreds of plants and views across the Eternal City. A partnership with the Torlonia Foundation facilitates the rotation of priceless statues in the lobby, which sit alongside the brand’s exquisite jewellery. The starting rate is fearfully expensive – well-heeled guests aren’t just paying for the exquisite digs, but sightseeing in vintage Fiat 500s, personal shoppers and a fleet of chauffeured cars.

Casa Monti, Rome hotel review Arrow

Monti is one of the city's oldest and most historically rich districts, with roots tracing back to ancient Rome. Over the centuries, the neighbourhood has transformed from a vibrant yet rough working-class quarter into a trendy, bohemian enclave. Casa Monti has found its place along Via Palisperna, where a 17th century listed building was formerly a private noble residence and later served as a police station, set within the charming aura of Monti. Emulating the essence of an artist’s residence combined with subtle references to an ancient Roman home, the talented Laura Gonzalez introduces a profusion of colours, creative influences and noble materials in each space. There are three distinct colour themes that recur throughout the rooms, presented in the form of wallpaper and textured upholstered beds, complete with lacquered wooden boiserie, playful cornices and a mix and match of terrazzo, travertine tile and carpet floors. Breakfast, lunch and dinner take place in the ground-floor restaurant where, each morning, a delightful spread of food is laid out on the curved marble counter. You can choose to sit indoors, in the quiet internal courtyard or in the small terrace outback. Before sitting down for supper, take a trip to the sixth floor rooftop bar. Not only is the design a painstaking example of Laura Gonzalez’s creativity, but sipping on a cocktail while overlooking the terracotta rooftops of Rome at sunset is truly remarkable. The standout location is on display at the spa too, where you can lie in a marble jacuzzi overlooking the Roman forum before treating fatigued muscles to the Mountain Pine Mood-Boosting Ritual using Suzanne Kaufmann products.

Six Senses Rome: First In Arrow

Six Senses has long been associated with its lush, secluded destinations like the Maldives , Thailand, Bali, Seychelles and Oman’s Zighy Bay, for example. The decision to inaugurate the first urban Six Senses property in Rome was partially driven by the owner’s love of all things Italian and is part of a new drive to bring sanctuaries to bigger cities. Set back from Via del Corso, one of Rome’s main arteries, this former noble palazzo, the 18th-century Palazzo Salviati Cesi Mellini, was also a bank before its present incarnation. Now the lobby, with its oval bar and piazza-like restaurant, has quickly become a gathering point for well-heeled locals looking for a post work aperitivo. Guests include those already loyal to the Six Senses brand and Missoni clad fashionistas who have heard about the hideaway’s sizeable wellness offerings. The hideaway, while private, feels less formal than some of its competitors, but less nightclub in lobby too: curious Romans wander in to work remotely, meet a friend for an espresso, or to leaf through the property’s sizable book collection.

Palazzo Ripetta Arrow

One of the few remaining independent five stars in Rome, Palazzo Ripetta embodies the kind of edgy elegance Italian design is famous for. There are 78 rooms and suites carved out of a former convent, bolstered by a recent renovation by Italian architect and interior designer Fausta Gaetani, who cleverly contrasts the ancient 17th-century digs with wild wallpapers, bold colour schemes and gilded sculptures. Located on Via di Ripetta in the historic centre, the hotel is a stone’s throw from cultural sites like the Ara Pacis, Trevi Fountain, and Pantheon. This is one of the most important buildings in Rome; a 17th-century complex that has gone from convent to design icon, thanks, in part, to leading Italian architect Luigi Moretti, who worked on the building in the 1960s. From the moment you enter the lobby, it’s a big visual treat, with meticulously restored artefacts, like the Arnaldo Pomodoro – just one of a few in the world – and a contemporary art collection (the owner’s own) featuring an original Warhol.

Hotel d'Inghilterra in Rome

Hotel d'Inghilterra Arrow

Initially opened in 1845 as Hotel d’Angleterre, this place became a classic over the 170 or so years that followed. There are 80 rooms, though something about this Rome hotel makes it feel as if there are fewer. Some (the Balcony Suites) are recently renovated, and all have restored antiques throughout. The bar is one of the best hotel drinking spots in the city (the cheerful staff are very good at what they do and take pleasure in applying novel twists to classic cocktails), and Café Romano is an all-day restaurant serving excellent regional dishes and, inevitably, a certain amount of comfort food for homesick travellers. The hotel couldn’t be more central, and the service is exceptionally warm, enthusiastic and attentive. This is a place to book for its right-there-in-the-thick-of-it convenience and its particular quality – specific but difficult to pin down – of intimacy, courtesy and conviviality. Steve King

Outdoor dining at The Rome EDITION Italy

First in: Rome Edition, Rome, Italy review Arrow

The lighthearted hotel brand, designed by Ian Schrager and owned by Marriott, has finally arrived in Rome, literal steps from the Spanish Steps no less. Rooms are classic Edition (simple but uber comfortable) with Italian flair. Custom beds made with Canaletto walnut, Agape bathroom fixtures, and Carrara marble basins are only some of the Made in Italy touches. All rooms also have a Charlotte Perriand “Indochine” chair and scrumptious Le Labo toiletries. Beyond the rooms you'll find a Jasmin-clad outdoor café and restaurant, a rooftop pool and bar as well as several intimate speakeasy-style bars. Sometimes hotel restaurants can almost be an afterthought but not so at Anima, helmed by self-taught chef Paola Colucci, where I had one of my best meals in Rome in recent memory. Don’t miss her vitello tonnato and spaghetti with datterini tomatoes (not all pomodori are created equal!). Despite its chic style and beautiful local crowd, the atmosphere is welcoming, and the location on a quiet block not far from the Via Veneto creates an intimate, quiet hideaway that’s a safe distance from the tourist hordes.

citizenM Roma Isola Tiberina Hotel Arrow

It’s always refreshing to find smart, affordable hotels in Rome. The city's new citizenM strikes a balance with pleasingly styled rooms (clean lines, modern furniture), and while they’re not huge, the designers have made the most of the space, with King-sized beds fitted wall to wall, big HD TVs beside expansive windows, and rain showers in the bathrooms. The lobby’s got a colourful art collection, and the canteenM bar is open 24/7. The 162 rooms are smartly furnished with all the essentials and a bit more – we’d call it minimalist-attractive. Rooms are cosy and compact, and the designers have made best use of the space; beds, for example, are enormous with comfortable mattresses and super soft linens. Floor space is sacrificed, but the widescreen TV and super-fast Wi-Fi more than makeup for it. Bathrooms feature powerful rain showers. Everything in the rooms, from the blinds to the lights to the air-conditioning temperature, can be controlled via in-room iPads or the citizenM App.

First in: Palazzo Vilòn, Rome Arrow

It’s no secret that the splendours of Rome are very splendid indeed. Entire streets and squares, monuments, historic buildings, and places of worship – all splendid and available to anyone who cares to look. But naturally, the city also has a great many very splendid and very private places, which, in the ordinary run of things, unless you’re exceptionally well-connected, you’re unlikely ever to set eyes on. Palazzo Vilòn was – until recently – one of these. A great beauty, for those lucky enough to see it. Most of the Palazzo Borghese still belongs to the Borghese family. But there are a few sections of it that don’t. An annexe to the eastern wing was acquired by the Shedir Collection, a hotel group, and opened in 2019 as Hotel Vilòn. Palazzo Vilòn occupies about 1,000 square metres of floorspace (and heaven only knows how many thousands of cubic metres’ worth of airspace), spread over three storeys. There are just three bedrooms – but what bedrooms they are. There’s one on the first floor that’s practically an apartment-within-the-apartment; a second in the former chapel on the raised ground floor; and a third overlooking the inner courtyard of the Palazzo Borghese, full of citrus trees and statuary. A private butler is on hand around the clock to take care of whatever is required – with the assistance of the entire Hotel Vilòn team. Steve King

W Rome Arrow

Featured on our 2023 Hot List of the best new hotels in the world

Prepare for a W like you’ve never seen before, located in the heart of Ludovisi – a posh, quiet neighbourhood abutting the Villa Borghese and just an arancino’s throw to the Spanish Steps. The brand’s first outpost in Italy captures the exuberant, energetic vibe that W is known for but ditches the dark models-and-bottles aesthetic, opting instead for spaces that look as good by day as they did the night before, while striking the right mix of elevated and playful. Award-winning firm Meyer Davis Studio oversaw the transformation of the property’s two 19th-century palazzi, which now feel thoroughly modern thanks to natural light, pastel palettes, and an alfresco courtyard filled with greenery and fountains.

The rooms – some with views onto the neighbouring Swiss Institute’s lavish gardens – have gorgeous herringbone wood floors, powder-blue walls with pink and navy furniture, and opulent marble bathrooms. But don’t let the hotel’s refined aesthetic fool you – this is still a place to see and be seen. Up on the rooftop, you’ll find a plunge pool (that’s more suited for snapping selfies than swimming laps), as well as Otto, one of Rome’s only rooftop bars. At sunset, it becomes one of the most magical places in the entire Eternal City. Todd Plummer

Hotel de Russie, A Rocco Forte Hotel Arrow

From the moment the top-hatted doorman ushers you into the classic-modern space by former Valentino interiors whiz Tommaso Ziffer and Rocco Forte Hotels director of design Olga Polizzi, the sense of being in the foremost place to stay in town is as sharp as the Campari sodas served at the bar. The 120-room hotel just off Piazza del Popolo mixes Art Deco–tinged nods to Rome’s classical past with jazzy homages to Picasso and ballet legend Nijinsky, who stayed here in its previous incarnation. They’re commemorated in signature suites, as is Giuseppe Valadier, the architect behind the palazzo’s terraced garden. This is being restored for the hotel’s 20th anniversary – one of several refreshes that include a health-oriented lightening of the mod-Med menu. The kitchen is overseen by chef Fulvio Pierangelini, who also curates the food at the Stravinskij Bar, which fills with glamorous Romans come aperitivo time.

Price: Rooms from about £1,342

Hotel Maalot Rome

Hotel Maalot Arrow

Hotel Maalot is a five-star hotel that draws a young, upmarket crowd looking for colourful, individually-designed rooms outfitted with modern artwork and flea market finds. The restaurant and lobby area are slightly more soothing, with potted palms and low-slung rattan ceiling fans overlooking silky sofas and tiled tables. The Maalot is a refreshing change of pace from the faded hotels in Rome ’s historical Trevi district. The area is a must-see, with its mix of monuments and must-see sights, including the Trevi fountain, the Pantheon, and Piazza Navona.

JK Place Roma

J. K. Place Roma Arrow

J.K. Place is one seriously stylish… well, place. Stride into the lobby and there’s no mistaking you’re in Rome: expect white marble sculptures, bronze lamps, and chunky design bibles on the shelves. It’s elegant and fresh, the kind of place you want to stay forever. Everything’s meticulously designed and totally luxurious here, but what makes J.K. Place so special is that everyone treats you like a star, from the restaurant staff (late for your booking? No problem!) to the receptionist who’ll have your shirt pressed at 1am, because that's when you realised you needed it for the next morning.

Rocco Forte House Rome

Rocco Forte House Arrow

The Rocco Forte brand has a reputation for some of the best hospitality in Rome, and that extends to Rocco Forte House. Film stars, musicians and high rollers tend to book into these apartments, drawn to their privacy, location and luxurious rooms. Rocco Forte House is your private hideaway in an 18th century palazzo overlooking Piazza di Spagna. There are just five apartments, with two bedrooms, a kitchen, living room and dining area – plus a communal rooftop area with the best views in the city. Hungry? Your private chef's on speed dial. Tired? Sink into the bath with bespoke Irene Forte bath products. You’re also smack dab in the centre of it all here, between Piazza di Spagna and Via del Babuino. Via Condotti is home to some of Italy ’s best shopping, for those wanting to update their wardrobe.

Gran Melia Roma Rome hotel

Villa Agrippina, a Gran Melià Hotel Arrow

Rome in summer is glorious, and there’s nowhere better to bed down than at the Gran Meliá Rome, a five-star property on the banks of the Tiber, not far from Vatican City. An olive tree-lined drive takes you past manicured gardens to a vast, pink palazzo, with a soaring, palatial entrance. Inside, polished floorboards and elegant armchairs put you right at ease, while the staff magically whisk your bags to your room. The message is clear: your holiday begins now. Sun seekers will love the pool, while beauty junkies should head to the spa for a satisfyingly firm Swedish massage.

St Regis Rome

The St. Regis Rome Arrow

Marriott invested 40 million euros into renovating this formerly faded property, reimagining it for today with light-filled communal spaces and plenty of glitz. It’s no surprise that well-heeled professionals love the opulence of this grand hotel – not to mention its proximity to Rome’s major sites. First opened in 1894 as "The Grand," the St. Regis was Rome's first true luxury hotel – and it's a mantel the property still holds fast to. Luxury suites feature a myriad of original artwork from the private collections of important contemporary artists, including Luca Pignatelli, Ubaldo Bartolini, and Paolo Fiorentino. Even smaller touches, including Murano glass lamps and original frescos, give each set of rooms their own style and feel.

Price: Rooms from about £905

Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese

Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese Arrow

Sofitel Roma Villa Borghese is an elegant boutique abode situated in a 19th-century palazzo on the edge of Villa Borghese. It’s regal and grand, with ornate, elegant hallways and classically designed guest rooms. This may be a historic hotel, but it feels brand new, thanks to its recent multi-million-euro makeover. French designer Jean-Philippe Nuel (Molitor, Paris ; InterContinental, Marseille ) was brought in to re-energise the property, upgrading its 78 rooms and suites, and adding a rooftop restaurant and a fitness centre.

DoubleTree by Hilton Rome Monti Entrance

DoubleTree by Hilton Rome Monti Arrow

DoubleTree by Hilton has created a sophisticated Roman space that’s reflective of the city thanks to collaborations with local artists and designers. The brand has managed to keep its 133 rooms feeling local and elegant, with polished wood floors and emerald green sofas. On the roof terrace, soft rattan furnishings sit by potted palms, beneath linen canopies. Staying in Monti has all the perks you’d expect, like its vicinity to major sights such as Teatro dell'Opera (four minutes away on foot) and Trajan’s Market (15 minutes on foot), and Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore (four minutes on foot).

The Tribune Hotel, a JdV by Hyatt Hotel Arrow

This new arrival from Hyatt is shaking up the city’s straightlaced Villa Borghese, with a destination rooftop bar and eye-catching contemporary design. In opening near Via Veneto, they’ve taken inspiration from Rome’s original coffee houses where Rome’s artists, intellectuals and writers gathered to attend literary salons and exchange ideas. From the outside, there’s nothing too exciting about its building. But inside is bursting with energy, bright walls and conversation starters like big, blow up prints of Fellini’s Rome everywhere you look.

Anantara Palazzo Naiadi Rome Lobby

Anantara Palazzo Naiadi Rome Hotel Arrow

Luxury Thai brand Anantara recently took over this property, formerly part of the NH hotel brand – and what a change they’ve made. Given Anantara’s status as a go-to retreat for upmarket travellers looking for local experiences and stories, it’s not surprising that their first Italian property attracts a similar clientele, decked out in comfortable clothes ideal for exploring – think designer brand polo shirts and Tods loafers. Don’t leave without experiencing Anantara’s signature spa treatments, inspired by the ancient Roman Baths. Pro-tip: stop by the rooftop plunge pool, with its Instagram-worthy views over Rome, before the crowds arrive.

Price: Rooms from about £546

Hotel de la Ville A Rocco Forte Hotel

Hotel de la Ville, A Rocco Forte Hotel Arrow

If Rocco Forte’s first foray in the Italian capital, the suave Hotel de Russie, is Marcello Mastroianni and Anita Ekberg all dressed up in La Dolce Vita, this peppy cousin is Roman Holiday ’s Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck buzzing around town on a Vespa. Located at the top of the Spanish Steps, it’s a head-to-toe overhaul of the InterContinental de la Ville, a once-glamorous address that had become increasingly staid. There’s nothing staid about Tommaso Ziffer’s new interiors: 20 years on from his debonair, Art Deco-tinged work on De Russie, he’s in a playful mood. Nests of convex mirrors, wallpaper studded with digital reproductions of antique prints, deft touches of chinoiserie, coffee tables topped with computer-generated mosaics, colours that range from powder blue to deep plum – it’s the Grand Tour on acid. The decorative verve and brio helps to make up for the fact that not all of the 104 rooms have full-on city views (for those, check into a Panoramic Suite or the swoony top-floor space). But the millennials who are already flocking to this good-looking Roman berth are unlikely to complain. Silk Road-inspired cocktails at the Julep bar and the smart updates of traditional dishes served in the hotel’s chic, streetside Da Sistina restaurant focus the mind on the inner view. De-stress from a long day of culture slogging with a Mediterranean Mudding Ritual in the soothingly penumbral spa. Lee Marshall

Rome Cavalieri A Waldorf Astoria Resort

Rome Cavalieri, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel Arrow

Rome Cavalieri, a Waldorf Astoria Hotel set on 15 acres with views to St. Peter’s, is both a lavish escape and a perfect city-break address. The lack of neighbourhood action is more than made up for by a world-class art collection and La Pergola Rome, one of the best restaurants in the capital. Arriving at the Cavalieri feels a bit like stepping into Rome’s bygone era, a time of endless manicured gardens, cheery butlers, and azure swimming pools where cocktails can be taken at any time of the day, darling. The swimming pools are as close to outdoor swimming as it gets in Rome, ensconced among hundreds of acres of greenery. It’s perfect for a post-sightseeing paddle and, best of all, the smartly dressed waiters bring you trays of ice-cold cocktails while you sunbathe. Room service gets a makeover at the Rome Cavalieri – there’s the fifteen-course Imperial Breakfast, complete with quail eggs, black truffles, and pineapple carpaccio – or the silver service lobster, which comes with a side order of 500 white roses. Fashion mavericks can even learn how to make their own Italian sandals from a Roman shoemaker – just remember to unleash your inner Italian superstar and add some clunky diamanté bling to your new toe tappers.

Portrait Roma Arrow

Portrait Roma, from the Ferragamo family, is as pretty as a picture. On one of Rome’s most fashionable streets, Via Bocca di Leone, mahogany doors open to a shiny hallway, complete with big, blown-out black and white snaps of Salvatore Ferragamo himself. Up the stairs, the photographs keep on coming, leading to rooms as chic as the entrance – though it’s the personal touches that make it truly stand out. You can invite your friends up for a private party on the hotel terrace, or take advantage of the complimentary shopping card, which gives guests a 10 percent discount at Rome’s most stylish boutiques – with extra-sweet benefits if you shop at Ferragamo.

Fendi Private Suites Rome hotel

Fendi Private Suites Arrow

The owners of Fendi Private Suites must have emptied a marble quarry – or five – during its construction because the hotel’s public spaces are absolutely plastered with the stuff. Huge windows and mirrors sit in red marble frames, golden blocks form chunky tables, and the reception desk is five massive pieces sat higgledy-piggledy atop one another. It’s grand and solid, angular and elegant, which is no less than you’d expect after walking in from the imposing architecture of 18th-century Palazzo Fendi outside. Also, breakfast is complimentary, even if you order it to your room. Do this. Do this every day. The menu is amazing, the food is incredible, and everything tastes ten times better when you eat it in bed, while drinking an espresso from the equally complimentary espresso machine.

The Pavilions Rome, The First Musica Arrow

Located on the banks of Tiber, The First Musica stands out from Prati’s grand old palazzos with its modern, cubist design. While the mid-century palazzo was originally designed by esteemed Roman architect Mario Docci, it’s been given a facelift by Studio Marincola, who have brought plenty of light into the concrete building through big, oversized windows. The upscale location of Prati is perfect for people-watching – it's one of Rome's smartest neighbourhoods. The hotel’s clientele are young and deep-pocketed, who work hard and play hard–appreciative of both the big, modernist artworks in the rooms by day, and the DJ sets in the lobby by night.

Price: Rooms from about £400

GRough Rome hotel

G-Rough Arrow

At this narrow, wood-beamed 16th-century townhouse near Piazza Navona, architect and designer Giorgia Cerulli has had a great deal of fun arranging the owner's mid-century-modern collection of furniture and artworks. The 'rough' part of the 10-room hotel's name refers to the hip, stripped-back interiors: a palimpsest of colour and decorative fragments that serve as a backdrop for, say, a print of stark white Sicilian cliffs by contemporary photographer Massimo Vitali, a Gino Sarfatti Sputnik chandelier from the 1950s, or an iconic Superleggera chair by Giò Ponti.

It's all super-cool, but also surprisingly welcoming (this is Rome, after all, not Milan). The downstairs street-facing bar and breakfast room - which feels like a cross between an urban speakeasy and a rustic village bar - multi-tasks as a social hub, refuelling station and reception desk.

There are two suites on each of the five floors: the pricier Pasquino looks onto a cute cobbled square, the other a rather featureless courtyard. A deal with Roman art historian and opener-of-closed-doors Filippo Cosmelli means the Unconventional Luxury Experiences G-Rough offers its guests are more exclusive than most Roman hotel tours and packages.

La Scelta di Goethe Hotel Rome

La Scelta di Goethe Arrow

Though Goethe never actually stayed here, the German writer did enjoy the good things in life and so would have felt at home in this polished two-suite apartment. It looks and feels like the city pad of a 19th-century Tuscan count, with neo-classical wall copings and antique display cabinets and bookcases exuding old-school class, if not yet the patina of age.

The entrance, on busy Via del Corso, is fairly anonymous, but when the lift opens on the fourth floor you'll find an altogether gentler world presided over by attentive staff who are happy to offer advice at any time of day or night, or simply open another bottle of Champagne (the first is included in the rate).

The really smart thing to do would be to book both rooms and create a two-level, sixth-berth Roman space that might have featured in La Grande Bellezza . But staying in just one of them is not exactly a sacrifice. The Villa Medici has a high-ceiling drawing room, a separate dining room and two elegant bedrooms. The Trintà dei Monti has a book-lined salon with the air of a gentleman's club and a love-nest of a bedroom that leads to a huge split-level private terrace with views of Saint Peter's Basilica (this draw card explains the higher price for this much smaller suite). A waiter serves breakfasts of fresh fruit, good coffee and homemade cakes and pastries, but no other meals are available. Lee Marshall

The Fifteen Keys Hotel Arrow

This immaculate little hotel's retro-classic but thoroughly modern look and keen prices are attracting a smart young crowd. A 10-minute walk north of the Colosseum, the handsome townhouse stands on the quiet upper reaches of Via Urbana in the cobbled Monti area, which is packed with an eclectic mix of cafés and restaurants, vintage boutiques, independent craft shops and elegantly restored houses. There are just 15 spruce bedrooms arranged over four floors, from cosy to capacious in the palest grey, deep blue or soft buttermilk. All are understated, with brass-and-charcoal-black lamps, surrealist artworks by French photographer Alastair Magnaldo and Fifties pieces arranged sparingly on blond parquet floors. Downstairs in the lobby, sun streams through lofty arched windows and in the bar and breakfast room couples feast on homemade pastries with organic marmalade from Puglia . Nicky Swallow

Hotel Vilòn

Vilòn Roma Arrow

The quiet, confident arrival of the Vilòn gave Rome a boutique hotel to showcase the city’s sharp sophistication, which too often gets lost among its antiquities – or trumped by that of Paris and Milan. In its Adelaide cocktail bar, where large-scale black and white prints pop against maroon walls and golden curtains surely recall the fabulous living rooms of the smart designers along Via di Monserrato, a Gimlet (or three) is a revelation. That is not to say set designer Paolo Bonfini, who exercises his craft with restraint and exquisitely clear vision here, brushed off Rome’s history when transforming this former nunnery into a vibrant 18-room hideaway down a central side street.

Rather brilliantly, he found ways to make it feel relevant and not forced, which rarely land so easily in Rome. Rococo-style columns are discreet against mid-century-modern furniture, while the city’s famous monuments are referenced in works by contemporary Florentine photographer Massimo Listri. The result is fresh but mature, and self-assured with no ego; the type of place that is not trying to attract hipsters – as so many now are – but rather the finely tuned 40-year-olds they’ll grow up to be. The Vilòn stylishly captures a vital facet of the direction the city is headed in.

Hotel Rome Hotel Locarno

Hotel Locarno Arrow

Miss the 60s, want to go back? Hotel Locarno is for you. The receptionist works behind a period cabinet converted into the sort of desk Philip Marlowe would happily put his feet on and Art-Deco ornamentations abound, from the beautiful clocks, to the slightly sinister candlesticks. Movies could be filmed here. Hotel Locarno has bags of charm – something it didn’t need to necessarily bother with given its sterling location near the glorious Piazza del Popolo – and it’s not unreasonably priced. Throw in staff who can’t do enough to help and you’ve got the makings of a lovely stay.

CondomiNio Monti Rome

Condominio Monti Arrow

Condominio Monti is made up of two buildings in Monti, one of Rome’s most central neighbourhoods. The exterior is unassuming – there’s even a faded old hotel sign hanging from the building windows – but walk through air-conditioned entrance and things start to get interesting. Local Roman design firm, Studio Tamat, overhauled the two buildings a few years back, keeping the layout of a traditional Roman guesthouse, with all of the rooms arranged along a corridor. They’ve also livened up the lobby with soft green and gold wall paints, marble tables and soft armchairs. There are cute design touches, like the shelf of hand drawn postcards and maps of the local neighbourhood.

Rome hotel Palazzo Dama

Palazzo Dama Arrow

Palazzo Dama is everything you’d imagine a modern Roman palace to be: chic, polished, and with just the right amount of bling. There’s parquet flooring throughout, chandeliers dripping from the ceiling, and a serious collection of artwork on nearly every wall. No surprise, then, that the property is the former family home of the noble Malaspina family, who threw legendary shindigs for centuries. The Pacifico bar and restaurant are pure 1920s decadence, with chandeliers, potted palms, and velvet bar stools you could spend an evening in. Chef Jaime Pesaque’s Peruvian-inspired menu is spot on, too. The downstairs nightclub, Raspoutine (could this place be any more perfect?!) is utterly decadent, welcoming the who’s who of Rome’s social scene.

Rome Hotel Villa Spalletti Trivelli

Villa Spalletti Trivelli Arrow

The entrance to Villa Spalletti Trivelli is as grand as you’d expect, this being a villa after all. And what a villa it is, with a sandstone exterior overlooking a garden of trimmed hedges and manicured lawns. Inside, you feel like you’ve stumbled into someone else’s home, rather than a hotel; the bedsheets are soft, the pillows and mattress so comfortable, that you’re basically cradled to sleep. Best of all, the staff is so accommodating (and inconspicuous) that you feel like you can roam around the villa to your heart’s content, and pretend it’s your very own.

Owner Lorenzo Lisi (also the manager of hit seafood restaurant Pierluigi) enlisted a crack team of creative directors for his hotel in Rome. Stylist Daria Reina, fashion illustrator Andrea Ferolla and the gang responsible for nearby concept store Chez Dede have decked the place out to a highly polished shine. There are deep dark-green velvet curtains and sage walls in the bedrooms, lots of mirrored surfaces, vintage Italian furniture, murals of Rome painted by Ferolla, princess-and-the-pea-worthy beds and Frette sheets. The logo, on the dressing gowns, towels, pillows, napkins and glasses, is sage on white too, in a font Wes Anderson would like.

The whole place hums with a kind of moody coolness, and smells floral and delicious thanks to the enormous bottle of Dr Vranjes Rosso Nobile Limone e Mandarino fragrance by the entrance. There’s no official restaurant, but breakfast (organic yogurt, wholemeal croissants, pink grapefruit juice so fresh it makes you wince and knock-your-socks-off Italian coffee) can be taken in the retro-style sitting room or, via room service, on an enormous silver tray placed by the floor-to-ceiling bedroom windows overlooking via della Barchetta. The focus instead is on the Charade bar, where they take aperitivo hour seriously; drinks are served with a flourish alongside an impressive cheese board.

Each room is kitted with its own mini-cellar with eight different wine varieties from Piedmont and Trentino. The location is great, in the artsy neighbourhood of Regola Rione with its crumbling buildings, fledgling galleries and buzzy shops, and central enough so you can walk everywhere. Essential, as getting in a car is futile in Rome. Sylvie Tredegar

The First Roma Dolce Arrow

Europe Italy Rome Hotel Hotel Chapter Roma

Hotel Chapter Roma Arrow

Here’s a city that does traditional in spades, but until recently hadn’t embraced the sort of street-savvy, communal-spaced hotel that New York and London are familiar with. So Chapter feels like a place that fully understands visitors who have come to expect DJs spinning at cocktail hour and street-art tours at concierge. The brains behind it belong to Marco Cilia. After years working with London’s Blakes and cool-kid hotel slinger Grupo Habita – New York’s Americano and the Robey in Chicago – he returned to his home country to launch the first of what he hopes will be a string of social clubs and places to stay throughout Italy . The Chapter is in the Jewish quarter, an area right across from hip Trastevere that for years has felt under-appreciated given its proximity to some of the city’s star attractions, such as Piazza Farnese, the Forum, and MAAXI gallery. Its interiors are edgy in a way that Italians sometimes feel too conservative to embrace, which may be why Cilia turned to break-out South African designer Tristan Duplessis for the graffiti-scrawled lobby bar, quirky bespoke rugs, and pared-back, bare-brick rooms with mid-century inspired minibars, industrial metals, and punchy olive-green beds. Sandwiched between the centuries-old synagogues and café-society restaurants of the neighbourhood, Chapter feels remarkably at home, even though walking into it from the discreet cobbled sidestreet feels like stepping into one of Rome’s freshest scenes. A thoroughly enjoyable arrival for the co-working generation, with a sense of humor and a can-do attitude.

Rome hotel Palazzo Manfredi

Palazzo Manfredi Arrow

It feels wrong to call Palazzo Manfredi a hotel; rather, it’s a palatial residence, owned by none other than Count Goffredo Manfredi. The reception area is suitably grand, with ancient maps on the wall and leather Chesterfield armchairs. Silver picture frames and diamond jewelry is on display, too, all available for purchase. Michelin-starred rooftop restaurant Aroma has a seven-course degustation menu – you might have octopus, scallops, or pumpkin and gorgonzola tagliolini with caviar – with matching wines and stupendous views. The location, too, right by the the Colosseum, is utterly glorious.

Rome Hotel Eden

Hotel Eden, Dorchester Collection Arrow

This place could very well be our own Eden. Part of the Dorchester Collection, it's elegant and calm, with marble floors, a gold-lit ceiling and vases of freshly-picked flowers in every corner. Bathrooms are pure decadence, all white and gold, with a huge bath and Bottega Veneta products so luxurious you’ll feel like royalty all day long. The hotel is set between Rome's Borghese Gardens and upscale Via Veneto.

Price: Rooms from about £1,088

The Hoxton Rome

The Hoxton Rome Arrow

The Hoxton Rome is the most stylish new hangout in Rome’s Parioli – an upscale district brimming with good food and art and culture. Since its opening, its restaurant and cocktail bar Cugino has drawn Rome’s coolest local crowd. The mid-century-inspired design is a refreshing change of pace for Rome, at an affordable price. Contemporary galleries MACRO (Museum of Contemporary Art) and MAXXI (National Museum of 21st Century Art) are a short stroll from the hotel.

Soho House Rome Arrow

The Rome outpost of Soho House is energising and modern, set inside a 10-story restored building with an industrial feel. The property is next to La Sapienza university. There’s a strong visual-art theme across the hotel, with a dedicated gallery space and a 42-seat screening room; all guest rooms (49 bedrooms and 20 apartments) offer unparalleled views stretching across the mountains and the Eternal City. Eateries include a ground-floor deli bar and lounge area, plus an exclusive upstairs restaurant. The rooftop cocktail bar, with its lemon trees, striped linen blinds, and plush velvet stools, looks like it’s been lifted straight from Rome’s Dolce Vita era.

Corso 281 Arrow

With many of Rome’s hotels run by conglomerates, Corso 281 stands out for its personalised, one-to-one approach. Owner and former lawyer Natalino Gisonna is at the hotel daily and runs everything directly, from managing all hotel requests to offering a tailored concierge service that effectively involves him recommending the kind of off-the-radar places only locals know about. Gisonna has loved hotels from a young age – hence the career change – and is big on guest relations, so his staff are some of the friendliest imaginable. No request is too much for Gisonna’s team and they’ll happily use their pull around town to make sure you get the best Roman experience possible, whether that means getting exclusive early access into the Vatican, getting you that table at the exclusive Roman restaurant that’s been booked out for months, or even arranging a helicopter day trip to Capri.

Margutta 19 Arrow

Arches and patterned floor tiles, flowers stood so perfectly in their vases they must be on the payroll, and a golden light falling just right on the cobbles outside. Nothing is left to chance in Margutta 19. Even dust doesn’t fall where it’s not supposed to. Let’s make no bones about it, Margutta 19 is an expensive hotel, but it works hard to make itself worth the price, and the guests expect nothing less. Deluxe Suites continue the clean lines found elsewhere in the hotel, with a partition wall separating the bed from a sitting room, where there’s a flatscreen television and writing desk. Everything’s a shade of pastel yellow, and sketches lines the walls, but none of that matters because you’ll probably spend most of your time on the little balcony overlooking the hotel's garden.

hotel travellers roma

Sentho Roma Arrow

This independent hotel sits in a restored palazzo in the heart of Rome’s Monti neighbourhood, next to the Basilica of Santa Prudenziana, Rome’s oldest Christian church. The two share a courtyard, bringing a tranquil, almost meditative feel to your stay. The crowd spans everyone from 30-something couples on a weekend away to local residents who have stopped by for an aperitivo in the garden. The rooftop courtyard is the real draw here, a peaceful spot encircled by olive trees and old Roman palazzi. Choose from pastas and pizzas or book onto one of the hotel’s cooking courses, where the chef gives you a one-on-one lesson on how to prepare Roman artichokes, fresh pasta and tiramisu.

Cosmopolita Hotel Rome, Tapestry Collection by Hilton Arrow

With its unassuming, faded façade, you could easily mistake the Cosmopolita for one of the many dated properties dotted around Rome. And you’d be right – the Cosmopolita has been around for years, run by an ever-rotating wheel of hotel chains. But now that Hilton has taken over, the Cosmopolita has never looked better. Step inside and you’ll be pleasantly surprised: for one, the sleek and shiny lobby has had a facelift, all cream stone and marble desks. Via di S. Eufemia is about as central as it gets, right near Piazza Venezia. The crowds a mixture of suited Italians on their way to work, grandmothers doing their market shopping and tourists out for some daily sightseeing.

Umiltà 36 Arrow

This bolthole from the upmarket Shedir Collection portfolio (Hotel Maalot, Vilon Luxury Hotel) has an unbeatable location on Via dell’Umiltà: a short stroll to Trevi fountain, the Pantheon and Piazza Navona, and around the corner from the shopping along Via del Corso. The vibe here is arty, cosmopolitan, and refined, from the contemporary art and marble bust in the high-ceilinged Grand Hall, through to the jungle-wallpapered lobby lounge. The bedrooms are stylish and contemporary, with herringbone flooring, eye-catching contemporary artworks on the walls and big, floor-to-ceiling windows that draw the light inside.

The 8 Best Hotels in Rome

The skyline of Rome, Italy at sunset, with historic buildings including the Colosseum in the foreground and mountains in the background

Rome has a rich history stretching back millennia. Over the centuries, it’s been rebuilt and rebuilt (and then rebuilt again), creating layers and layers of history for the modern-day traveler to explore.

Rome is a big city with a ton of hotels to choose from. I started going to Rome in 2006 (and have even run tours there) and have stayed at more places than I can count (many of them I wish I could forget!). The city is super spread out and not all areas have good public transportation access (see here for more on Rome’s great neighborhoods ).

To help you plan your visit, here are my favorite hotels:

1. Loly Boutique Hotel Roma

Large bed, desk, and TV on the wall at Loly Boutique Hotel in Rome, Italy

Book here!  

2. Colosseo Prestige Rooms

A simple grey guestroom at Colosseo Prestige Rooms in Rome, Italy

3. Eurostars Roma Aeterna

A guestroom with pink accents throughout, including roses in a vase on a low table at Eurostars Roma Aeterna hotel in Rome, Italy

4. Luxury on the River

A simple guestroom with a bed opposite an entertainment center including shelves and a TV at Luxury on the River hotel in Rome, Italy

5. Crossing Condotti

A spacious bathroom with a deep soaking tub and a separate shower at Crossing Condotti hotel in Rome, Italy

6. Hotel Laurentia

Breakfast buffet in the dining area with stone arched ceilings at Hotel Laurentia in Rome, Italy

7. Monti Palace Hotel

Rooftop bar and lounge with the cityscape in the background just after sunset at Monti Palace Hotel in Rome, Italy

8. Hotel Royal Court

Guestroom with deep red accents and wooden furnishings at Hotel Royal Court in Rome, Italy

Book here!   ***

Rome is one of the most iconic cities in the world. I love everything about it, from the tucked away restaurants serving delicious food to the cobblestoned streets lined with millennia of history. And by staying at one of the hotels I recommended above, you’ll be to fully enjoy your trip to the Eternal City knowing you’ve got a great place to lay your head after a long day of exploring.

Book Your Trip to Rome: Logistical Tips and Tricks

Book Your Flight Use Skyscanner to find a cheap flight. It is my favorite search engine, because it searches websites and airlines around the globe, so you always know no stone is being left unturned!

Book Your Accommodation You can book your hostel with Hostelworld , as it has the biggest inventory and best deals. If you want to stay somewhere other than a hostel, use Booking.com , as it consistently returns the cheapest rates for guesthouses and hotels.

Don’t Forget Travel Insurance Travel insurance will protect you against illness, injury, theft, and cancelations. It’s comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong. I never go on a trip without it, as I’ve had to use it many times in the past. My favorite companies that offer the best service and value are:

  • Safety Wing (best for everyone)
  • Insure My Trip (for those 70 and over)
  • Medjet (for additional evacuation coverage)

Looking for the Best Companies to Save Money With? Check out my resource page for the best companies to use when you travel. I list all the ones I use to save money when I’m on the road. They will save you money too.

Need a Guide? Rome has some really interesting tours. My favorite company is Take Walks . It has expert guides and can get you behind the scenes at the city’s best attractions.

If you prefer food tours, Devour is the best company. I always learn a ton and eat incredible food on its tours!

Rome at a glance

Rome Hotel

Ancient, renaissance, baroque, contemporary. Political, papal, passionate. Vivacious, frivolous monumental. Rome caput mundi.

Italy’s capital city is, arguably, the most visited in the world. For many, Rome is first and foremost the political centre of the nation, for others it is primarily home to the Pope . All agree upon the importance of Rome in the development western civilisation.

Once the capital of the Roman Empire , the most powerful of the ancient western world, Rome has retained its impressive cultural, historical, and artistic importance and is still, centuries later, an important protagonist on the world scene. Here, every piazza, street, and alleyway records the history of Rome's glorious past, which is, needless to say, only a part of the city's charm. Ideally, Rome should also be experienced via the old quarters of Testaccio and Trastevere , where to savour the warmth of the people and the authentic soul of the "eternal city" .

10 Best Places to Stay in Rome for Solo Travellers (From a Local)

In this post, I discuss the best places to stay in Rome for solo travelers. If you’ve decided to travel to Rome alone, you’ve got a great idea.

Rome’shistoric center, a UNESCO heritage site, will fill your bucket list with monuments, museums, and satisfying experiences to do. 

In case you run out of things to do in Rome alone , just spend some time in one of the prettiest neighborhoods to meet some new people. 

My selection of best hotels for solo travelers in Rome, hostels, and guest houses takes that into consideration location above all.

The places I have chosen are located in Rome’s most charming neighborhoods, conveniently close to attractions or connected to them by subway.

The best hostels for solo travelers in Rome and other types of accommodation I have researched will suit travelers with different budgets.

Find out right now what they are.

10 Best places to stay in Rome for solo travelers

in case you’re in a bit of a hurry and can’t read the whole post, here are the top 3 choices for accommodation in Rome for solo travelers:

Disclaimer : this post contains affiliate links. That means that if you do a purchase through one of my links I get a small commission at zero extra cost for you. For more info, read my full privacy policy .

1. Ostello Bello Colosseo

Piazza della Madonna di Monti in the Monti neighborhood in Rome near Colosseum is a gathering hub for locals and travelers that sit and chat near its central fountain during the evening.

Ostello Bello lives up to its name: the spaces are beautiful, and the Colosseum is just a 9-minute walk away. The hostel is located in Rione Monti , the best area to stay in Rome. Travelers who have stayed there have loved so much the communal spaces available, which facilitate socializing.

  • There is a rooftop terrace with tables and a shared kitchen on the top floor
  • There is a garden
  • Welcome drink, plus food provided in the kitchen by the staff, such as vegetables and tomato sauce
  • Location, location, location! We are located in the Monti district after all.
  • Not only the Colosseum, even the Domus Aurea and the Basilica of San Clemente are just minutes away.
  • Hearty and varied breakfast
  • Female-only and mixed dorms
  • Private rooms with private bathrooms

The list of strengths of this hostel is long. I would also add that the vintage furniture and decorations on the walls make the place even more welcoming.

2. Relais Monti Hotel

Vertical photo of the Colosseum in Rome, portrayed at the point where the three tiers of arches rejoin the part of the monument that has two tiers of arches instead. The building is touched by sunset light, which turns the marbles of which it is composed an orange-yellow color. Behind the building, the blue sky is silhouetted with small sparse clouds. There are people walking in front of the building and, on the left, a pruned cypress tree.

Traveling to Rome alone does not necessarily mean having to give up the comfort of a hotel. Especially if the hotel is located in the Monti neighborhood and has an attractive, in this case, “urban-chic” decor. 

That’s why I like the Relais Monti .

HIGHLIGHTS :

  • Location: Via Urbana Road is a walk-only street in the Monti district with restaurants, bistros, and street food shops.
  • With a short walk, you will reach the Colosseum.
  • Breakfast has no time limit , it is available 24H!
  • There is an airport shuttle available 24 H
  • Breakfast is served on the terrace on mild days (there are many in Rome)

3. Guest House Cavour 278

An alley in Rome's Monti neighborhood connecting Via Urbana to Piazza degli Zingari. There's the marble facade of a small church, cars parked on the side of the alley and some passerbies.

Are you traveling with your pet ? Or are you a solo traveler who wants to experience the welcome and familiarity of a real home?

In either case, the Guest House Cavour in the picturesque Monti district is the perfect accommodation in Rome for you.

A short walk across the Palatine Bridge takes you to Mouth of Truth Square with its ancient temples.

This is an area to stay in Rome near attractions and at the same time away from the usual tourist routes.

Furthermore, Monti is one of the top nieghborhoods to go out at in Rome .

  • Pets are welcome
  • From here you can get around the city on foot
  • Fabulous breakfast and available 24H
  • Top welcoming and helpful host
  • A courtesy bathroom set is available in the rooms

4. The Rome Hello Hostel

A young man and a woman are filmed from behind as they are about to enter a building. On the glass door is written "Here Hostel." Both are carrying large backpacks on their shoulders. The woman has a wide-brimmed straw hat hanging from her backpack. Next to the door are concrete pots filled with plants with large, deep green leaves.

I wish I were someone visiting Rome for the first time so I could stay at this very hostel . RomeHello wins hands down the top spot among the best hostels in the Eternal City.

The facility is decorated with fascinating murals done by well-known artists. There is even an artwork by Alice Pasquini, one of Italy’s most famous street artists.

The hostel claims to donate all profits to charity.

  • Modern structure
  • Individual electrical outlets and light for all beds
  • Comfortable beds
  • Dorms and private rooms with private bathrooms are both available
  • 3-bed women-only dorms available
  • Abundant breakfast buffet

One of the attractions of this hostel is really the location. The Rome Hello is located a 10-minute walk from both the historic center and Termini station . The nearest metro station is Repubblica. 

Also very close is Via Nazionale, one of the best shopping streets in Rome .

5. Budget Rooms des Artistes Hostel

A mural depicting a man and a woman asleep next to each other. Their heads touch, ear to ear, almost as if they are listening to each other's music. Their hair is adorned with green leaves. The man has his left hand on his chest with his palm facing upward. The eyes of both are closed.

One hostel that just could not miss from the list is Rooms des Artistes , as you might guess, an all-female hostel. If you are a woman traveling to Rome alone give it a thought. You will feel much more comfortable not fearing the risk of ending up in a mixed room!

  • The beds in the dorms are not bunk beds, but single beds. For a much more peaceful rest
  • Cleanliness: rooms are cleaned daily
  • Female-only hostel!

The Rooms des Artistes is located a few minutes walk from Termini Station and Castro Pretorio subway station, near the University.

Another excellent area to stay in Rome for first-time travelers is the Parione neighborhood .

Imagine sleeping within walking distance of Piazza Navona , the most beautiful square in the world, with its Baroque fountains and churches.

This hotel is one of the most appreciated 3-star hotels in Rome , one where guests even return more than once.

  • Vegan or allergy-friendly breakfasts are available
  • Soundproof rooms
  • Terrace with romantic views over the ancient rooftops of the historic center (from here you’ll see the Pantheon dome)
  • Rooms with a terrace with a view
  • Rooms with bathtubs
  • Airport transfer
  • Location: 150 mt from Piazza Navona and Campo dei Fiori

6. Hotel Damaso

Photo taken from above the central part of Piazza Navona in Rome. 3/4 of the photo is occupied by Bernini's Fountain of the Four Rivers, topped by an Egyptian obelisk. The fountain features a single large block of sculpted creamy-white travertine marble. The water that settles at the bottom of the fountain is light-blue in color. There are dozens of people walking in the square. Behind the fountain are rows of 3- and 4-story buildings, tables of refreshment stands covered by white awnings in front of the buildings bordering the square. In the distance, the domes and roofs of other very old buildings such as the Pantheon and the Altar of the Fatherland can be glimpsed.

7. Palazzo Baj Trastevere

A square paved with cobblestones and lit by midday sunlight. A handful of people walk at the bottom of the square, but they are very small, their faces not visible. In the center of the square, a little offset to the left, is a marble fountain, surrounded by steps on all sides. At the bottom of the square is an old church with arcades and portico on the ground floor, a bell tower, and two Renaissance-style buildings on the sides.

Trastevere is another neighborhood of Rome that I recommend as a base for those visiting the city on their own. Strolling through the streets of Trastevere and discovering local street food is a must-do if you travel to Rome alone .

Palazzo Baj Hotel is located on the edge of the Trastevere neighborhood , in a quiet location, and some rooms have sweet views of the Tiber River and the distinctive Tiber Island.

  • Location: a stone’s throw from the heart of Trastevere, one of the best areas in Rome for bars and restaurants.
  • Close to the Circus Maximus and the Roman Forum
  • Features a spa
  • Soundproofed rooms
  • Gluten-free breakfast is always available

8. Anna Vì Guest Home

Visiting Rome on a budget ? The possibilities to save on accommodation without sacrificing comfort are there. 

The rooms at Anna Vì Guest Home are simply furnished but equipped with every comfort. It is also possible to use the kitchen to prepare your own meals.

Living in a suburban neighborhood will allow you to have an authentic experience and see Rome off the beaten path.

  • Top hospitality and welcome
  • Rooms cleaned daily
  • Complimentary toiletries

9. The Beehive Hostel

The exterior of the ground floor of a building plastered with a very light yellow color. There are some steps with railings leading to an open front door. The door is double: the outer one is carved wood with simple lines, and the inner one is made of non-organic material and has an anti-panic handle. Hanging on the outer wall of the building are 3 brightly colored wooden fish. The railing is adorned with plant pots. At the base of the steps is a small stone elephant in the style of the Indian god Ganesh. The entrance to the building is covered by a transparent hard plastic canopy, which lets light through but shelters from rain.

The best hostels in Rome cost more than hostels in other countries but are worth the expense.

The Beehive has become famous for the cultural and convivial activities the staff organizes daily. For example, here you will enjoy convenient happy hours here.

Castro Pretorio Metro A station is a short walk from the hostel, which is located on the edge of the historic center and close to Rome’s main university “La Sapienza.”

In any case, remember that Rome is a safe city for women traveling solo .

  • Private rooms available
  • Rooms are quiet
  • Daily cleaning
  • Friendly and helpful staff

10. BePlace Aventino

Photo taken from an observation deck that allows views of the rooftops of Rome's historic center. The highest roof is the dome of St. Peter's Basilica, towering over the back row. Gables of church facades can be glimpsed. There are several rows of green tree canopies. The sky is deep blue.

One of the most exclusive areas to stay in Rome, right in the historic center, is the Aventine Hill . Here you will find ancient monuments, noble palaces, and two of the most beautiful gardens in Rome .

It is difficult to find availability for accommodation on this very hill. 

BePlace Aventino features apartments with all amenities including a kitchen.

  • 24H reception
  • Exclusive location
  • Laundry service
  • Kettle tea and coffee maker in all lodgings
  • Ample parking facilities near the apartments

Conclusions

By now you will have realized that there are several opportunities in Rome regarding the best places to stay in Rome for solo travelers. In conclusion, from my very long experience in this city, the best advice I can give you is to choose well the area where you will stay. For those who are only traveling to Rome for a short time , I recommend first of all staying close to the historic center so you can reach all the attractions on foot. The Monti, Parione, Prati, and Trastevere neighborhoods are preferable for those traveling to Rome alone. In these areas, it will be easier to meet other travelers.

Is Rome a good place for a solo trip?

Yes, without a shadow of a doubt, Rome will satisfy even the most demanding solo travelers. Visiting museums and historic landmarks are activities that are pleasantly done even on their own. Walking through the endless streets of the vast historic center will also be satisfying because it is an open-air museum.

You will meet other solo travelers like you in Rome. If you intend to meet new people right away, you should stay in a hostel or a neighborhood frequented by travelers, such as Trastevere and Monti.

The only thing you’ll have to watch out for is expenses. Eating out in the more touristy areas can be expensive. You can easily save money by researching the cheapest restaurants in town and enjoying Rome street food , which is a real treat.

Where to go in Rome when single?

For singles visiting the Eternal City, here’s the good news: Rome is full of singles like you. They are travelers, locals, workers who have moved here from other Italian cities, and students.

The best times to make new acquaintances in the city are spring and summer when everyone spends so much time away from home.

To get started, stay in a hostel or join a group tour organized by a local guide in Rome . There are also completely free tours of the historic center.

Once you’ve made some new friends, invite them out for dinner or drinks in one of Rome’s characteristic neighborhoods such as Monti, Trastevere, or Testaccio. 

Then there will be a chance to meet other groups of friends and multiply your chances of socializing.

Which is the best area to stay in Rome as a tourist?

My favorite area in the historic center of Rome is the Monti neighborhood. From Monti, you can walk to the city’s main attractions such as the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Trevi Fountain.

At the same time, Monti is a neighborhood with a local flavor that locals love to hang out in. There are many restaurants and street food shops and pubs offering live music, look for them around Via Urbana . 

The area is not overrun by tourists. There is also a metro stop, namely Cavour.

In short, Monti holds all the advantages of the historic center but does not possess its main flaws.

What part of Italy is safest for a solo female traveler?

An Italian like me would tell you right off the bat that traveling alone in Italy is very safe, wherever you go. According to research reported by The Post Internationale , taking into account homicides, Italy is the third safest country in Europe after Norway and Switzerland.

Crime in some cities such as Naples, Trieste, Rome, Milan, and Bologna can be expressed by muggings, thefts, or drug dealing to the harm of the local population in particular.

How safe is Rome for a single woman?

Rome is a safe city for single women . There is always a large police presence in the historic center because the government ministry buildings are there.

Walking in the streets of the historic center at night is generally safe. 

To feel more comfortable, avoid the dimly lit streets. There are night buses and also the subway runs until 11:30 p.m. on weekdays and until 1:27 a.m. on weekends on Saturdays and Sundays. Taking public transportation at night will make you feel safer if you don’t feel like walking.

citizenM Roma Isola Tiberina Hotel Arrow

It’s always refreshing to find smart, affordable hotels in Rome. The city's new citizenM strikes the balance with its pleasingly styled rooms (clean lines, modern furniture), and while they’re not huge, the designers have made the most of the space, with king-sized beds fitted wall to wall, big HDTVs beside expansive windows, and rain showers in the bathrooms. The lobby’s got a colorful art collection, and the canteenM bar is open 24/7. The 162 rooms are smartly furnished with all the essentials and a bit more—we’d call it minimalist-attractive. Rooms are cozy and compact, and the designers have made the best use of the space; beds, for example, are enormous with comfortable mattresses and super soft linens. Floor space is sacrificed, but the widescreen TV and super-fast Wi-Fi more than make up for it. Bathrooms feature powerful rain showers. Everything in the rooms, from the blinds to the lights to the air-conditioning temperature, can be controlled via in-room iPads or the citizenM app.

DoubleTree by Hilton Rome Monti Entrance

DoubleTree by Hilton Rome Monti Arrow

DoubleTree by Hilton has created a sophisticated Roman space that’s reflective of the city thanks to collaborations with local artists and designers. The brand has managed to keep its 133 rooms feeling local and elegant, with polished wood floors and emerald green sofas. On the roof terrace, soft rattan furnishings sit by potted palms, beneath linen canopies. Staying in Monti has all the perks you’d expect, like its vicinity to major sights such as Teatro dell'Opera (four minutes away on foot) and Trajan’s Market (15 minutes on foot), and Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore (four minutes on foot).

The Fifteen Keys Hotel Arrow

Housed in a restored five-story villa, The Fifteen Keys is the epitome of urban chic: It's modern and tastefully decorated, with polished parquet and creamy walls throughout. It’s the kind of place that makes you feel like you’ve stumbled upon a really stylish, secret spot that only the locals would know about. You can’t beat the hotel’s sumptuous buffet breakfast in the cool, vine-strewn courtyard, and there's a selection of complimentary tea and cookies available each day between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.

The Tribune Hotel, a JdV by Hyatt Hotel Arrow

This relatively new arrival from Hyatt is shaking up the city’s straight-laced Villa Borghese with a destination rooftop bar and eye-catching contemporary design. In opening near Via Veneto, they’ve taken inspiration from Rome’s original coffee houses where Rome’s artists, intellectuals, and writers gathered to attend literary salons and exchange ideas. From the outside, there’s nothing too exciting about the building, but inside is bursting with energy: bright walls and conversation starters like big, blow-up prints of Fellini’s Rome are everywhere you look.

The Hoxton Rome

The Hoxton Rome Arrow

The Hoxton Rome is a stylish hangout in Rome’s Parioli—an upscale district brimming with good food, art, and culture. Since its 2021 opening, its restaurant and cocktail bar Cugino has drawn Rome’s coolest local crowd. The midcentury-inspired design is a refreshing change of pace for Rome, at an affordable price. Contemporary galleries MACRO (Museum of Contemporary Art) and MAXXI (National Museum of 21st Century Art) are a short stroll from the hotel.

Generator Rome hotel

Generator Rome Arrow

Only 10 minutes from Rome's Termini Rail Station, Generator attracts a good mixture of those on a budget and those arriving into the city at unreasonable hours. We’re talking students and hippies, backpackers and businessmen—crashing out before an early train the next day. Relaxed, fun, and friendly is the vibe. The property is clearly design-led, but the design is ‘fun’, with Chesterfields; patterned tile floors at reception; and a really cool bar with lime green stools, Chinese lanterns, decent food, and a perpetually upbeat atmosphere.

Mama Shelter Roma Arrow

From the outside, Mama Shelter isn’t much to write home about: two gray tower blocks to the west of Rome’s center. But step inside and things start to get interesting. Decor is bold and pop-art-themed, with candy-colored tables and chairs, a garden ceiling, and neon lights. There are mismatched carpets and curtains with lemons on them. Somehow, it works. Rooms are much more subtle than the common areas, with neutral, unfussy furniture contrasted with pistachio green and pale pink walls. The bathrooms are an invigorating yellow color with arcade-shaped mirrors designed to echo Roman architecture. They’re big on natural materials: raffia lampshades, rattan headboards, and oak wood furniture. The ground-floor pizzeria is part Italian brassiere, part 1950s fever dream. (The pizza is excellent, too.) The indoor winter garden, meanwhile, has an osteria serving Italian and American classics, from cacio e pepe pasta to beef burgers and fries.

Hotel Rome Hotel Locarno

Hotel Locarno Arrow

Miss the '60s and want to go back? Hotel Locarno is for you. The receptionist works behind a period cabinet converted into the sort of desk Philip Marlowe would happily put his feet on, and Art-Deco ornamentations abound, from the beautiful clocks to the slightly sinister candlesticks. Movies could be filmed here. Hotel Locarno has bags of charm—something it didn’t need to necessarily bother with given its sterling location near the glorious Piazza del Popolo—and it’s not unreasonably priced. Throw in staff who can’t do enough to help, and you’ve got the makings of a lovely stay.

CondomiNio Monti Rome

Condominio Monti Arrow

Condominio Monti is made up of two buildings in Monti, one of Rome’s most central neighborhoods. The exterior is unassuming—there’s even a faded old hotel sign hanging from the building windows—but walk through the air-conditioned entrance and things start to get interesting. Local Roman design firm, Studio Tamat, overhauled the two buildings a few years back, keeping the layout of a traditional Roman guesthouse, with all of the rooms arranged along a corridor. They’ve also livened up the lobby with soft green and gold walls, marble tables, and soft armchairs. There are cute design touches, like the shelf of hand-drawn postcards and maps of the local neighborhood.

Corso 281 Arrow

With many of Rome’s hotels run by conglomerates, Corso 281 stands out for its personalized, one-to-one approach. Owner and former lawyer Natalino Gisonna is at the hotel daily and runs everything directly, from managing all hotel requests to offering a tailored concierge service that effectively involves him recommending the kind of off-the-radar places only locals know about. Gisonna has loved hotels from a young age—hence the career change—and is big on guest relations, so his staff are some of the friendliest imaginable. No request is too much for Gisonna’s team and they’ll happily use their pull around town to make sure you get the best Roman experience possible, whether that means getting exclusive early access into the Vatican , getting you that table at the exclusive Roman restaurant that’s been booked out for months, or even arranging a helicopter day trip to Capri.

Hotel De' Ricci Rome

Hotel De' Ricci Arrow

Old school lushes and anyone who enjoys a tipple will love Rome's Hotel De' Ricci, settled right within the Riona Regola neighborhood. This is a place that’s all about the wine, with eight seriously smart rooms. You get the feeling you’re somewhere swanky the moment you walk in, all secluded booths, low lighting, and draped curtains. The staff double as sommeliers, and stock the in-suite cellars based on guests’ favorite blends. Speaking of: All the suites are individually decorated, and despite being the smallest rooms on offer, the two Junior Suites have plenty of charm; walls are decorated with Roman art by Italian illustrator Andrea Ferolla, depicting life during those decades.

17 Best Hotels in Rome, Italy to Book

Rome: a city steeped in legend, culture, and fashion. My first time visiting Rome was in my early 20s. Backpacking through Europe, I lived off a diet of espresso and ice cream, and felt relieved when the Colosseum WAS worth spending my food budget on.

Five years later, I found myself booking for the Christmas holiday break. (This time with a slightly larger food budget). 

I took a step back from the excitement to appreciate the steadfast traditions that make Italy so unique. I soaked up the Italian attitude, learned how to make pasta (badly), and got used to trains running on loose timetables.

Whether you are looking to pop the question, on the hunt for the best gelato, or (like my brother) are obsessed with Roman gladiators, Rome has something for everyone. With thousands of years of history, Rome is a maze of UNESCO-protected treasures. 

These treasures can take days to discover as you navigate the beautiful chaos. While I recommend getting swept up by the excitement , it is important to find the best hotel in Rome that best suits you and your needs. You need somewhere to recuperate.

Choosing the right hotel can make or break your trip. Trust me, 10-bed dorms may seem like a good idea at the time – but lack of sleep is rarely worth the extra couple of dollars. Your hotel choice shouldn’t make your trip memorable for all the wrong reasons.

This round-up is on the best hotels in Rome will help you find the best hotels for you. Whether you are traveling with a family, as a couple, or solo-tripping on a budget, this article will help you find the best place to stay – so you can finally eat that pasta next to the Colosseum.

So it’s important to choose your hotel carefully when visiting Rome . Let’s look at what you need to consider when choosing the best hotel.

All hotels on this list are in ideal locations, meaning your only job is to decide which part Rome to base yourself in .

  • Amenities and services – Amenities and services such as 24-hour reception desks and laundry services can be important considerations when picking a hotel. For those with kids or who simply hate the heat, a pool can be a saving grace when choosing accommodation. The key amenities and services will help you decide which hotel is the best for you.
  • Price range – Not everyone is traveling on the same budget. This round-up of the best hotels in Rome looks at not only the 5-star luxury accommodations but also the best options for those who travel on a budget – and everything in between. Use the dollar signs as a starting price guide when browsing the list.
  • Unique features or experiences – I have prioritized hotels with distinctive features and experiences which you don’t get at home. Immerse yourself in culture and diversity. Each hotel in this roundup provides an authentic experience designed to understand this unique city a little bit better.

How you use this selection criteria will depend on your circumstances as a traveler. For example, those on a budget may be more willing to forfeit the pool or gym in order to save money. You need to decide what your priorities are and consider them when choosing the best hotel in Rome for you.

Best for Couples on a Budget: La Casa delle Tartarughe ($)

La Casa delle Tartarughe, Rome

La Casa delle Tartarughe is a recently renovated property and is in fact the childhood home of one of the owners. Despite the modern furnishings and interior design, this beautiful property maintains its feel of home.

The rooms are spacious and all have unique themes. Deep bathtubs and rain shower heads are also a big draw card to these beautiful quarters.

La Casa delle Tartarghe is very modestly priced compared to other hotels in central Rome. The guest house is situated between 3 different Metro Stations giving you plenty of flexibility to move around the city. The property is also next to Via Appia Nuova, a popular shopping area where you can find famous brands (for a spot of window shopping) or browse the Via Sannio flea market.

Best for Seeing the Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon: Design&Art Pie’ ($$$)

Design&Art Pie’, Rome

This is certainly one of the more unique hotels you’ll stay in Rome. Situated in a 19th-century building, Design & Art Pie’ has a very modern interior with geometric designs and marble furnishings.

Not only can you enjoy air-conditioned rooms with flat-screen TVs, but you can also choose rooms with a chromotherapy shower (if you don’t know, google it!) or a spa bath. There is also a spa treatment and wellness center as part of the facilities. So you’ll be refreshed and rested after a long day of eating pasta and gelato.

Once you have sufficiently soaked yourself to a prune in the hot tub, wander down to the self-service cocktail bar for a well-needed drink. Design & Art Pie’ is located just 500m from the Pantheon, River Tiber, and the Trevi Fountain.

So have your coins ready to make a wish! (I’m still waiting for my wish to marry a Jonas Brother to come true).

Taking its name from the Barberini Plaza just across the road, this hotel is in a beautiful 19th-century building in an up-market neighborhood.

Wanna know how to pack like a pro? Well for a start you need the right gear….

Best Hotel for a Central Location: Relais Rione Ponte ($$)

Relais Rione Ponte, Rome

Relais Rione Ponte is housed in a beautiful 17th-Century building just 100m from Piazza Navona Square. With rooms overlooking the Piazza delle Cinque Lune square, watch the humming activity of the city from your bedroom window.

The rooms are filled with sunlight, warmed by beautiful wooden floors and large showers. Not only are the rooms beautifully decorated, but the property also boasts a permanent art exhibition of contemporary artists such as Arianna Matta.

Relais Rione Ponte is perfectly located, just 5 minutes from the Pantheon, roughly halfway between the Vatican and the Colosseum. The centrality of Relais Rione Ponte makes it one of the best hotels in Rome’s city center. Despite its central location, Relais Rione Ponte is moderately priced.

Best Hotel for Luxury Vacations: Palazzo Nainer ($$$)

Palazzo Nainer, Rome

There aren’t many hotels that can boast a lounge seat, chandeliers, or floor-to-ceiling windows – and that’s just the bathroom. There is no doubt that Palazzo Nainer is on the pricier end. However, if it’s a special occasion, this beautiful hotel does not disappoint.

Built in 1821, Palazzo Nainer is on the same street as the Spanish Steps, surrounded by boutique shops, art galleries, and designer stores. Palazzo Nainer has a stunning rooftop garden and bar, with breathtaking views of the Piazza del Popolo.

When the weather has cooled down, walk along the River Tiber (located just a block from the hotel) for beautiful sunset views. Additional services include babysitting, personal shopping assistance, and in-room massages.

Best Hotel for Rooftop Views: H10 Palazzo Galla ($$$)

H10 Palazzo Galla, Rome

Everything to do with this 4-hotel is just so aesthetically pleasing. Situated in a late 19th-century building, H10 Palazzo Galla claims to fuse Roman classicism with more modern elements.

With a breakfast restaurant, lobby, bar, and rooftop bar, you can choose where to drink and dine. The rooftop bar has a majestic panorama of the old center of Rome, making it one of the best hotels in Rome with a view.

However, if you aren’t keen to share your view with strangers, the rooms in H10 Palazzo Galla have incredible view options ranging from balcony rooms to the Panoramic Venezia Terrace. Step out of the hotel close to the Piazza Venezia, Cavour Metro Station, Quirinal Hill, and Palazzo Venezia.

Best Hotel for Budget Travelers: Affittacamere Roma Centro, Musei Vaticani Rooms ($)

Affittacamere Roma Centro, Musei Vaticani Rooms is cozy and welcoming. The rooms are basic but spacious, with themed bedding, making you feel like an Italian Nona has adopted you. Breakfast is included in the room, meaning you have one less thing to worry about in the morning.

Affittacamere Roma Centro, Musei Vaticani Rooms is just a 6-minute walk from the Cipro Metro Station which takes you to the Termini Train Station. A very beautiful 20-minute stroll will find you in the heart of St. Peter’s Square.

And the best bit? Affittacamere Roma Centro, Musei Vaticani Rooms is relatively inexpensive, particularly given the location. So it’s perfect for those who want to travel to Rome on a budget.

Best Hotel for Feeling Fancy (While Still on a Budget): Hotel Villa San Lorenzo Maria ($)

Hotel Villa San Lorenzo Maria, Rome

Hotel Villa San Lorenzo Maria is a beautiful hotel built in 1910. Having been once a noble residence, you can now feel like royalty with the draped curtains and ornate furniture. A charming garden and shrubs surround the property, providing privacy and a sense of refuge to hotel goers despite being situated in Saint Lorenzo, one of the most lively areas of Rome.

The best part is that this hotel is inexpensive for the quality of the room and services provided. Being so reasonably priced means more money for you to spend on gelato. Hotel Villa San Lorenzo Maria is conveniently close to Termini station and offers breakfast and bar services when you are ready to hydrate from a long day of exploring.

Best Hotel for Boutique Experience: Hotel Locarno ($$$)

Hotel Locarno, Rome

Dubbed ‘the grande dame of boutique hotels’ by the Telegraph in 2018, I have to agree that Hotel Locarno is one of the best boutique hotels in Rome. Hotel Locarno’s interior designers deserve a pat on the back for the beautiful environment they have created inside this stunning hotel. Every room feels like a step back in time, from fireplaces to chandeliers, this hotel is certainly Instagram-worthy.

Lacarnno’s bar offers a wide range of delicious cocktails that you can enjoy on the furnished patio. The hotel’s rooftop terrace has breathtaking views of Rome’s historic center and you get free bikes from the concierge to best explore the city.

Hotel Locarno is just a 4-minute walk from the Flaminio Metro Station and the Spanish Steps are just 850m away. If you don’t want to organize your own itinerary for Rome , the staff at Hotel Locarno are well equipped to help you with a variety of experiences from walking tours and wellness experiences to family outings and rum flights.

Best Hotel for Nature: Garden House – Luxury Guest House ($)

Garden House – Luxury Guest House, Rome

This is one of the best value-for-money properties in Rome. The Garden House has a beautiful garden right on your doorstep.

There is also a communal terrace where you can sit and enjoy the late afternoon sun as you debate whether pizza or pasta is the more superior dish. (It’s pizza, obviously).

Yes, this property is a little further away from the hustle and bustle of central Rome. However, it is embedded between two large parks, including the Riserva Naturale Valle dell’Aniene.

When I was in Rome, I needed to seek a bit of nature after a weekend of sightseeing . The city can be a bit of a concrete jungle, heating up quickly in the Italian Summers. Parks become your best friend, providing shade and ample people-watching while you wait out the heat of the day.

Garden House Luxury Guest House is also self-check-in only, so a huge bonus for us introverts. There is an option for both a buffet and an Italian breakfast. Being a little further out of the city center, Garden House is very reasonably priced and one of the best hotels for tight budgets.

Best Hotel for Families: Aldrovandi Residence ($$)

Aldrovandi Residence, Rome

The Aldrovandi Residence is one of the best hotels in Rome for families. It can be hard to find a hotel that will not only keep your kids entertained but will also be the getaway you deserve as well.

Various apartments and suites are available, boasting spacious interiors and a kitchen or kitchenette. This gives you independence during your stay to cook meals for certain picky eaters or gives you an option for a homemade meal after several nights of dining out.

For the kids (and you), there is a free pool. The tram stops opposite the hotel will take you to points of interest such as the Vatican and the Colosseum, while the National Gallery of Modern Art is just a 5-minute walk away.

Best Hotel for a Taste of Rome on a Mid-Range Budget: Stop Colosseo ($$)

Stop Colosseo, Rome

Stop Colosseo is a newly renovated apartment building in the vibrant neighborhood of Monti. Monti has a huge choice of restaurants, bars, and nightlife. However, being slightly off the main road, Stop Colosseo doesn’t get all the noise from the street, allowing you a quiet night’s sleep.

With marble floors, rustic furniture, and stunning brick ceilings, this apartment provides its guests a homely and authentic experience, with great reviews for the hosts. In terms of location, this is one of the best hotels to see the Colosseum and is also situated between several metro stations. So you can zip around all the highlights of Rome.

Best Hotel for a Mid-Century Inspired Escape: Hoxton Rome ($$$)

Hoxton Rome

The Hoxton Rome, like many others in the Hoxton family, does not disappoint. Stepping through the doors is like taking a time machine into the 50s and 60s. With bold colors, brass lighting, and warming lacquered timbers, this hotel has plenty of hidden and subtle treasures for you to appreciate.

With a coffee bar and takeaway counter, you can take your caffeine to go as you hit the museums, just a short walk away. Otherwise, enjoy the beautiful vine-covered outdoor terrace, which will make you feel like you’re in a winery – rather than central Rome.

I am a self-proclaimed bargain hunter; I love finding the best deals when traveling. Here are some useful tips when trying to get the best price.

The biggest impact on hotel prices is the season you’re visiting Italy . Unfortunately, everyone has the same idea and decides to tick Rome off their bucket list finally. Rome welcomes millions of tourists a year, particularly over the summer season.

Between May and September is Rome’s peak tourist season. This can be hot, chaotic, and expensive, as everyone tries to find accommodation (with air-con). Consider the months on either side of peak season. The weather is usually still pleasant, but you will have less competition for the best stays in Rome.

The second biggest impact on hotel prices is how far you book in advance. Usually, prices will be lowest the more in advance you book; price tags go up as occupancy fills.

If you like to live on the more spontaneous side, sometimes the best hotels in Rome offer last-minute deals to traditionally very expensive options. If you are wanting an impulsive romantic getaway, the risk is you won’t find deals for hotels in locations you wish to visit.

hotel travellers roma

A big question when researching your perfect Roman holiday is using a trustworthy booking site. Booking websites such as Booking.com and Hostelworld are incredibly useful when comparing different hotels and prices. Often these sites offer flash deals or mobile booking discounts, along with loyalty programs which can save you money as well.

The final consideration is whether your hotel has seasonal promotions or discounts. Often hotels will provide discounted rates for long-term stays or bookings that are non-refundable.

I first went to Rome when I was on my gap year (what feels like a millennia ago). Safe to say, I was scraping for pennies and quickly learned what to look out for when trying to backpack Italy on a budget .

In all honesty, Rome is an expensive city compared to others in Italy. This is especially true after the pandemic, which has seen price hikes all over Europe. Even budget chains like Best Western are no longer the guaranteed cheapest options when researching hotels.

Two of the biggest factors which impact hotel prices are the number of people staying in a room and its location. Hotels are often more economically viable for couples or groups, often ending up cheaper than a hostel bunk dorm once the costs are shared.

hotel travellers roma

For solo travelers, this can be a lot harder. I, therefore, recommend solo travelers keep an eye on last-minute deals to see if they can pick up a bargain. Or, check out some great bed and breakfasts in Rome .

The location also has a huge influence on price inflation. The closer you are to the action, the more demand there is for real estate and consequently the higher the cost of a hotel room.

Consider widening your search radius if there are no viable options in central locations. This can dramatically decrease costs while not forgoing quality. However, it is incredibly important when choosing lesser-known neighborhoods.

Do your research to ensure you are in a residential area close to public transport. There is no point staying in amazing cities such as Rome if you are taking several buses and hours to reach one tourist site.

Here are some common questions when booking your Roman accommodation:

Which are the best hotels in Rome city center?

These hotels have a fantastic central location in Rome:  – Relais Rione Ponte – Hotel Barberini – Hotel Locarno

Can I stay in a boutique hotel in Rome?

Yes! You absolutely can. Rome is riddled with beautiful and stylish boutique hotels that will make even the most bougie travellers heart dance.

Are there good hotels in Rome for couples?

Absolutely. If you’re heading to Rome on a romantic getaway, check out La Casa delle Tartarughe . It’s even a good budget hotel too!

What is the best hotel for families staying in Rome?

The Aldrovandi Residence is ideal for families. They have lots of entertainment for kids, plus this great hotel in Rome also has a pool. It’s perfect for cooling down, recharging, or burning some energy.

Rome is the eternal city: ancient Romans believed that no matter what happened in the world, Rome would continue forever. Rather than erase its past, Rome embraces its history, creating a unique fusion of the old and the new.

Every building has a story, every fountain a magical power, and every Italian has an innate knowledge of how to parallel park. It’s no wonder the city draws in so many tourists every year, hoping to soak in Rome’s romance and charm.

Despite Rome being such a tourist hotspot, it’s always possible to avoid the superficial tourist experience. Picking the right hotel for your stay in Rome is key to your perfect Roman holiday being authentic – and within budget.

There is no set recipe of factors when comparing hotels. Decide how important the price, location, amenities, and experiences offered are to you.

Read reviews and do your research when comparing different hotels. Seasonal offers and last-minute discounts help you find inexpensive alternatives. Lastly, ensure your findings are well located without being exorbitantly inflated.

When choosing the best place to stay, Rome doesn’t make it easy. There is an overwhelming array of incredible neighborhoods and amazing hotels to stay in.

I personally love researching my trips. However, I know this isn’t for everyone. Luckily The Broke Backpacker has already done all the hard work for you, collating information from a range of experienced backpackers to help you plan your next trip.

Italy is a diverse country, with each region offering completely unique cultural and culinary experiences. Get started and find the cities to include in your itinerary.

Italy is incredible. Immerse yourself in the flavors and passion of such an amazing country, while rest assured that your hotel (in Rome at least) will be fantastic.

I’ve been to Rome three times now, with each visit better than the last. I chalk that up to learning through painful trial and error all the eccentricities and traps that this magically frustrating city has to offer.

(Although full disclosure: the first time, I literally got robbed within 15 min of arrival, so I guess that’s a pretty low bar.)

So, if it’s your first time in the Eternal City, here are some highly important must-knows before you visit Rome. Trust me – with these Rome tips in hand, you’re guaranteed to have the trip of a lifetime.

Rome Travel Planning Tips

Let’s start with some planning-related Rome tips to help you with flights, booking hotels in Rome, choosing dates, the best times to visit Rome, etc.

Learn the tricks to getting cheap flights TO Rome

If you haven’t booked your flights to Rome yet, be sure to check out my guide on  how to get the cheapest flights to Europe . I promise it’ll save you hundreds of dollars on your flight!

Consider flying into Rome’s cheaper, smaller (and more central) airport

Rome Fiumicino Airport (AKA the Leonardo da Vinci Airport) is Rome’s main international airport. If you are coming from overseas, this will likely be your point of entry. 

This airport is located in Fiumicino, about 40km west of Rome’s historical centre, right by the sea.

Getting to/from Rome’s Termini (central) station can be as quick as 32 minutes if you take the Leonardo Express Train (14 euros) or as long as an hour or so if you take some regional trains with stops and connections.

If however you are flying from within Europe, then a cheaper alternative may be Rome Ciampino Airport, which is only 12.5km away from Rome’s historical center and services budget airlines like RyanAir and WizzAir.

A train from Ciampino to Rome’s Termini station can be as quick as 14 minutes and costs only 1.50, so it’s a great way to save time/money if you’re on a budget. 

NOTE: Budget airlines come with their own set of unique struggles, but if saving money is a big priority for you, then flying into Ciampino is worth looking into.

Avoid peak season in Rome if you can

I’ve visited Rome in June, July, and January. By far, January’s temperatures and crowds were the most pleasant.

Not only are July and August extremely popular times to visit Rome (meaning inflated prices and crowds), the heat will destroy you completely.

One afternoon on my most recent visit, my boyfriend and I were so exhausted by the heat that we literally sat down next to a water fountain, and wordlessly sipped water for a solid 30 minutes. It was weird – and for that bizarre chapter, I blame that scorching Roman sun.

Of course, Rome in the peak summer months is still worthwhile to visit, but if you have the luxury of choice, visiting outside of July and August will mean thinner crowds and more tolerable temperatures.

hotel travellers roma

Plan your trip for minimum four days

If you are currently planning your first visit to Rome, I strongly encourage you to plan for at least 4 days in the city.

There is SO much to do in Rome – after three visits I still feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface.

I think the beauty of this city is that there are huge powerhouse attractions that are a must-do (e.g. the Colosseum, Vatican City, etc.) alongside quirkier and more offbeat sights that many visitors miss.

4 days will allow you to experience both of these (equally worthwhile) sides of Rome, while making time for lengthy, relaxing meals and aperitivos.

hotel travellers roma

Book your Rome hotel early

Hotel options in Rome are overwhelming, with over 700 hotels in the historical center alone.

And honestly? I feel like the value for money with Rome accommodation is pretty mediocre. While there are of course many beautiful hotels, most come at a high price point, and a lot of budget/mid-range options leave much to be desired in terms of facilities and decor.

That’s not to say you can’t find some gems! I stayed at this hotel ON the Spanish steps for only 120 euros a night, a complete bargain for the location.

But anyways, when it comes to getting a good hotel in Rome, your best bet is to book early. 

TIP: If you use Booking.com , you can find hundreds of hotels that offer free reservations and cancellations, ensuring peace of mind even if you aren’t 100% committed to that property.

hotel travellers roma

Staying somewhere central is key

It goes without saying that where you stay can have a huge impact on your experience in Rome, but I didn’t realize what a big difference it made until I finally stayed somewhere ‘nice’ on my most recent trip.

Staying right on the Spanish Steps meant I was within 30 min of all major sights on foot, and getting back to the hotel after along day of exploration was always filled with beautiful sights, lovely monuments and a hopelessly rome-antic ambiance.

Being able to explore as soon as I stepped out was invaluable, and worth every penny.

Public transportation in Rome is also not super reliable (more on this later), and time is money, so if you’re prioritizing your needs for accommodation, I highly recommend location being high up on your list.

hotel travellers roma

Consider booking an airport hotel & spending your last evening in Fiumicino 

As I previously mentioned, hotels in central Rome can be expensive, and if you happen to be flying out earlier in the day, then I highly recommend spending your final night in Fiumicino (assuming that’s the airport you’re departing from).

There are many accommodation options in Fiumicino that are MUCH cheaper than central Rome. We stayed at this hotel for only 66 euros a night, and they even had a pool. 

If you love seafood, there’s also the added bonus that Fiumicino is right along the sea, meaning an abundance of excellent seafood restaurants for cheap.

We dined at Ristorantino Da Giorgio and enjoyed an epic menu of gorgeous seafood antipasto, spaghetti with clams, and a main meat course (I had calamari) for only 25 euros, including water and coperto. Unreal!

After a hectic city break in Rome, a final evening in Fiumicino is the perfect relaxing end. My boyfriend and I felt like we’d been dropped off in a Spanish resort town – it was so nice.

NOTE: The Terravision bus from central Rome to the airport has a stop in Fiumicino town, which means you can get there for cheap too.

Don’t forget travel insurance

I personally believe that travel insurance is a must for every trip, but especially in tourist cities like Rome, where pickpockets are a dime a dozen.

Trust me, when visiting a dream destination like Rome, the peace of mind is worth the cost!

Download helpful apps before you visit Rome

There are plenty of apps you can download that will make your time in Rome 100x easier.

I’ve previously written a full list of the  best travel apps for Europe  so be sure to check that out, but here are some especially good options for Rome:

  • MyCicero : An app that allows you to buy tickets for public transport, trains, and even parking
  • FREE NOW:  Great for ordering taxis with a transparent price so you know you’re not getting scammed
  • Google Translate:  A must for translating signs/menus on the go. Download Italian to be used offline if you can
  • The Fork:  Great for making restaurant reservations

hotel travellers roma

Use Omio to search transport options if you’re headed elsewhere

If Rome isn’t your only destination on the trip, then another helpful app/website to know is  Omio , which allows you to compare and book transport options from Point A to Point B.

That means you can compare buses, trains and flights for your route at the same time, making it much easier to find the best option in terms of cost, speed, etc.

Rome Transport Tips And General Tricks For Getting Around

Getting around Rome can be really daunting for a first-time visitor, so here are all my best Rome tips related to getting around the city.

Get ready to walk… a LOT

In my opinion, Rome is a city best explored on foot. My hotel receptionist though would disagree – his jaw just about hit the floor when we said we wanted to walk everywhere.

Admittedly, in the summer, walking from Point A to Point B is exhausting, but you get to see so much more that way! 

I also find using my own leg-stumps to be more reliable than Rome’s bus/tram system. We tried to catch the bus a few times but on each attempt, it was either packed or delayed for no reason – maybe it was bad luck, but even after three visits I still haven’t ever taken the bus in Rome!

For context, each day of my recent trip, I averaged 25,000 – 30,000 steps… so I hope you enjoy explorations on foot!

hotel travellers roma

Prepare to cross the street like a maniac

Crossing the street in Rome is a guaranteed adrenaline rush and a half.

At least for me, living in Germany where jaywalking is treated akin to murder, trying to navigate the chaotic streets of Rome is… intimidating to say the least.

In Rome, drivers don’t like to stop for you, even when there’s a zebra crossing. They also don’t always signal turns, and crossing the street is pretty much a free-for-all that rewards the boldest and most shameless…. AKA not me.

My tip? Walk out and cross with confidence, or simply wait for a local to step out so you can meekly shuffle alongside them, praying not to die.

Bus & Metro tickets are the same

The ticket is 1.50 and good for 100 minutes after you validate them.

While historically, you needed to have your ticket before you boarded the Metro, bus or tram, these days there’s the new Tap & Go System that allows you to pay with contactless cards instead.

Read more about it here.

Remember to validate your tickets

This goes for bus tickets, Metro tickets and even train tickets.

Validating your tickets in Rome is just as important as buying them, because if you get caught with an unvalidated ticket, you get fined the same as not having one at all. 

You can validate your tickets at special machines (usually found on train platforms, on the bus near the doors or at metro stations).

hotel travellers roma

Validate train tickets by sticking it way in and to the left

Here’s an oddly specific tip for validating train tickets!

Trenitalia ticket machines are super finnicky and I’ve seen more than a few people struggling to understand them, so remember: validate your train ticket in one of these (usually green/white) machines by aligning your ticket to the left side, then pushing all the way in with the back side of the ticket facing up.

Your stamp should be on the BACK of the ticket.

hotel travellers roma

Know that the Metro is limited

For a city as huge as Rome, the Metro system is surprisingly limited, with only 3 lines to offer (A, B, and C). 

While the Metro is punctual compared to buses/trams, the platforms can be excruciatingly hot and stuffy in the summer, and they can be a hot zone for pickpockets, so always be vigilant!

On the bright side, there are Metro stops near many of Rome’s main attractions (e.g. Spanish Steps, Colosseum, Circus Maximus), so it’s a very affordable way to get from sight to sight quickly.

hotel travellers roma

Consider getting a 24h, 48h, 72h or week long pass (though you likely won’t need it)

Bearing in mind that a single public transport ticket in Rome costs only 1.50, it likely won’t be worth it for you to get a transport pass, but if you intend to rely a lot on buses, trams and the Metro, then you should know that day/week passes exist, and could potentially help you save some money.

Here are the pass prices (last updated July 2023) and how many trips you would need for them to be worth it:

  • 24 Hour Ticket: €7 – 5 trips needed to break even
  • 48 Hour Ticket: €12.50 – 9 trips needed to break even
  • 72 Hour Ticket: €18 – 12 trips needed to break even
  • Integrated Weekly Card: €24 – 16 trips needed to break even

FREE NOW is a must-have app for taxis

The best way to not get scammed by a taxi is hands down ordering one through FREE NOW.

It’s similar to Uber but works with actual licensed taxis, and these days they even have options that show you your maximum fare you’re expected to pay.

This provides great ease of mind, and prevents common taxi scams like bait and switch rates and taking long routes to drive up the price, since the route is tracked through the app.

Always use official Rome taxis

These are the white taxis that have the maroon Roma Capitale logo on the side.

Particularly when you’re getting a taxi from the airport, it’s important you go with one of these rather than an “unofficial” taxi or private transfer company because those rates aren’t regulated, and are more prone to scams.

NOTE: Just because you get an official Rome taxi though doesn’t mean you’re exempt from scams! Still be vigilant and when possible, order through FREE NOW or another app.

Know the flat rates for taxis from the airport to central Rome

Luckily for your wallet, there are flat rates for taxis from both of Rome’s airports into the city center (within the Aurelian Walls). They are as follows:

  • Rome Fiumicino: €48
  • Rome Ciampino: €30

NOTE: If your hotel is out of this zone (call ahead with the hotel to double check), then the taxi may subject you to payment by the meter. 

hotel travellers roma

Easily rent a bike or scooter

For another Rome transportation option, consider looking into the bike and e-scooter sharing options in Rome.

This has become an increasingly popular way to get around the city, and involves paying per minute/distance for various modes of transport like bikes or e-scooters.

Here is a guide on how to find and use them.

Rome Tips For Attractions

Odds are, if you’re visiting Rome, your plans involve a lot of sightseeing. So, here are some of my best Rome travel tips related to attractions and itinerary planning.

Be prepared for a lot of construction and restorations

Rome is an ancient city, and with that millenia-old history comes the inevitable fact that something will always be undergoing some kind of restoration or renovation.

On my first trip to Rome, I was left SO disappointed because the Trevi Fountain had been closed and scaffolded up (without warning on any official channels), a large part of the Colosseum was scaffolded up, and the fountain by the Spanish Steps was entirely covered by a big advertisement.

On my most recent visit, I had booked a lovely hotel with a view of the Spanish Steps… only for the hotel to be covered in scaffolding, blocking 80% of my view. There were also large chunks of the historical center that had been dug up for road/sidewalk repairs.

While this may be frustrating, at the end of the day, it’s not a situation you have much control over, so just make sure you have your expectations in check!

hotel travellers roma

Remember that there’s a dress code for churches in Rome

Enforcement isn’t always consistent, but out of respect, you should ensure that you’re adhering to the dress code of Rome’s churches, which is that shoulders/knees must be covered. 

An easy way to ensure you’re always church ready (in the summer) is wearing a long skirt/dress and bringing a thin scarf to drape over your shoulders when needed. 

The place where they’re strictest with this dress code is usually St Peter’s Basilica, although I did notice a lot of visitors with exposed knees (mostly men in shorts!).

Whether or not you get let in depends on how the security feels that day, but it’s definitely easier to stick to the known dress code just in case.

hotel travellers roma

Pick only one major sight to do per day 

Rome is a city of heavyweight attractions, and sightseeing in this city can really take it out of you! 

Instead of trying to cram a lot of attractions into one day, I highly recommend breaking up your itinerary so that you only do one (or two max) big attractions in a single day, then leave the rest of the time for exploring, enjoying some food, etc. 

Buy your tickets in advance

Rome is a hugely popular city with most attractions offering some kind of “skip the line” ticket option. The best part is you can easily get your tickets online.

In fact, these days, a lot of attractions require pre-booking (e.g. the Colosseum) to ensure crowd control. 

If you are looking just for an entry ticket (without any kind of tour or guide), the cheapest place to buy them will always be the official website of that particular attraction.

Otherwise, if you are looking to combine your experience with a tour, guide, etc. then I can highly recommend GetYourGuide . They have a lot of great options with an easy to use interface that makes booking super simple.

hotel travellers roma

Consider booking tours for context

Rome is a fascinating city, but it has an expansive history that’s tough to grasp for a first-time visitor…

That’s why having a tour guide can really help in a lot of situations, particularly for Ancient Roman sights like the Colosseum and Forum, where you’re basically just looking at ruins without any idea of what it used to be/look like.

While I’m usually quite an independent traveler, Rome is one of those cities where I’ve never really regretted having a tour guide. 

Think twice before buying a Roma Pass or Omnia Card

I’m usually a huge fan of city passes that give you unlimited access to museums and attractions, like for example the I amsterdam card which offers incredible value and helped me save over 100 euros last time I went to Amsterdam.

… but I’m not so quick to recommend Rome’s equivalent passes, because of the following reasons:

  • None of the passes are “all inclusive” – most include only a few attractions and then discounts for the rest, which makes the deal a lot less sweet
  • None of the passes include guided tours of any kind, which I think are valuable for some of the main sights (including the Vatican Museums and the Colosseum, who only just opened up their underground to visitors, and is only currently accessible by guided tour)
  • If you can buy tickets at a reduced price (e.g. EU Citizens aged 18-25), then buying tickets on your own is much cheaper
  • These passes are only really worth it if you use all the benefits (e.g. the Hop on Hop Off bus) which I don’t think is the best way to see the city 

The most tempting perk of these passes is the promise of a “skip the line ticket” but honestly these are easy to book on your own these days.

In short, the benefits of these passes are not unique, and I don’t feel like the deal is good enough to make it an absolute must-buy.

hotel travellers roma

Wake up EARLY

The morning/late night hours are the best time to explore Rome if you hate crowds a much as I do.  

In the summer, this has the bonus perk of being a lot cooler (temperature-wise).

PRO TIP: Pick the #1 attraction you’re most excited for, and plan to see it as soon as it opens, with some sunrise explorations beforehand. I’ve heard sunrise at the Roman Forum is especially magnificent!

Visit big sights at the end of their opening hours

While most guides advise that you visit the main sights early, another sneaky hack that works quite well is visiting right before it closes.

I did this once with the Vatican Museums, entering about 1.5 hours before closing time and it I practically had the place all to myself!

In contrast, one time I did an early morning tour of the Vatican and it was already quite busy because other tour groups were starting at the same time. 

NOTE: In Italy right now, booking a time slot is mandatory due to COVID regulations so this hack won’t work if you’re currently travelling, but hopefully these restrictions lift soon.

Gorgeous photos of Rome in the off-season - excellent inspiration for your next trip to Rome, featuring amazing must-sees and attractions.

Plan around closure dates

While it’s easy to assume that all of Rome’s sights are open daily, this is actually not the case.

The Vatican Museums for example are closed on Sundays (apart from the last Sunday of the month which is usually a free day), while Museo di Roma and Villa Borghese are closed on Mondays.

When in doubt, search up the entry times for each attraction on their main website. 

Always search for information on the official websites of attractions (even in Italian)

These days, hours/entry requirements can change quickly and thirty party guides (yes, even Google Maps!) may be inaccurate. 

So, if you’re trying to find information on how to book tickets or what opening times are, make sure you always go straight to the source rather than other sites or blogs (even mine!)

For example, on my most recent visit, the Pantheon had changed its policy to be open only for reserved time slots on weekends, which would have been really unlucky because I saw no information about this anywhere else. Luckily, we went on a Friday.

hotel travellers roma

Don’t rely on Google Maps for opening hours

On a related note, on several occasions throughout this past trip, I found that Google Maps was simply incorrect with a lot of the attraction opening times in the city.

For example, it had listed the Pantheon as temporarily closed for the entire week, when it was in fact open for visitors as usual.

So, again, remember to only check official websites.

Get familiar with the many free things to do in Rome

Rome is often regarded by many as an expensive city, but this doesn’t have to be the case. In fact, there are tons of excellent free activities in Rome that you can enjoy, in addition to the city’s slew of paid attractions.

Here is a list of great free things to do in Rome.

hotel travellers roma

Climbing up St Peter’s Basilica? Time your visit with the hour mark

Rome is a city with 900+ churches, and getting to hear all of them ring their bells while standing at the top of the world’s largest cathedral is truly an epic experience.

This is why I would time your visit so that you hit the hour mark when you’re up top! If you’re climbing stairs the entire way, about 30min before the hour should give you enough time.

hotel travellers roma

Don’t sit on the Spanish Steps

This has been banned since 2019, and doing so risks a fine of 400 euros, although practically speaking, I don’t think anyone actually gets fined.

We stayed on the Spanish Steps this past trip, so it was a great source of entertainment to hear “the Whistle Police” enforce this rule. Yes, they’re there all hours of the day whistling at anyone who dares to sit down even for a second, so don’t do it! 

PS: It goes without saying, eating on the Spanish Steps is also prohibited.

hotel travellers roma

Take my suggested route for visiting St Peter’s Basilica

On my most recent visit, there were certain one way systems in place to ease the flow of crowds in St Peter’s Basilica, and I happened to accidentally do a really breezy route that I highly recommend.

Here it is as follows:

  • Enter the cathedral, have a quick look around to get a feel of the grandeur of it
  • Head down to the papal tombs, and the exit will take you back outside, conveniently where the ticket office is for the climb up the basilica dome
  • Climb up the tower, enjoy the views from above
  • Climb back down (the exit will actually bring you back into St Peter’s) and finish your explorations 

hotel travellers roma

Bring a pen to the Vatican

Just outside of St Peter’s Basilica, you’ll find a mandatory tourist stop: the Vatican Post Office, where you can purchase a (very Popey) stamp and send a postcard from the smallest country in the world!

Is it shamelessly touristy? Yes, but it’s a cheap souvenir to send to loved ones.

My main tip to you though is to bring your own pen – they don’t provide them and the cheapest ones cost 1.50. During my brief visit, they had even sold out of the cheap pens!

hotel travellers roma

Cool down in Rome’s green spaces

With all the sightseeing you’ll inevitably do in Rome, one major tip I have for you is to schedule a more relaxing stop each day (e.g. a park) so you can catch your breath and enjoy a calmer side to Rome.

I can highly recommend both Villa Borghese’s Gardens (the 3rd largest public park in Rome and filled with beautiful sights and plenty of shade!) as well as Giardino degli Aranci (AKA Parco Savello).

Both offer amazing views as well as lots of shady spaces to hide from the sun.

hotel travellers roma

Be wary of outdated information about “the 1st Sunday in Rome”

In the ‘Before TImes’, the first Sunday in Rome had traditionally been a day of free entry for Rome’s state run sights and attractions, including Galleria Borghese and Palazzo Barberini.

While this has been paused due to COVID-related crowd control issues, other sources from 2019 actually say they were planning on rehauling this program so that each museum decided their own free days, and the free 1st Sunday would be paused in peak season.

Anyways the point is, as I mentioned above – when looking for information about attractions in Rome, always go to the official source (i.e. that attraction’s actual official website) for the best info.

There are a TON of blogs out there that look official but are actually run by third parties, and most of them have outdated information.

For example, many websites said that Villa d’Este and Villa Adriana in Tivoli were both free on the 1st Sunday, but when we went, the ticket office seemed VERY confused when we asked about it, so I’m not convinced the free 1st Sunday will be making a comeback there any time soon!

Safety Tips for Rome

Is Rome dangerous? This is one of the most common questions that first-time visitors ask. 

As someone who was robbed literally 15 minutes into my first visit here, my answer is this: Rome isn’t dangerous for tourists in terms of violent crime, but you need to take smart precautions to avoid theft or scams. 

Don’t worry – that’s what these Rome safety tips are for! 

Know the common pickpocketing scams

The #1 threat to tourist safety in Rome is petty theft. Pickpockets are everywhere in Rome, particularly in hot spots like transport hubs and crowded tourist areas.

So, if you haven’t already, I highly recommend reading my guide on how to avoid pickpockets in Europe for a crash course on staying safe in pickpocket-heavy cities. I’ll share some more tips on that below.

hotel travellers roma

Avoid Bus 64 

This is a bus that has earned the nickname “Rome’s Pickpocket Express” because of its popularity with tourists (and therefore pickpockets). 

Its route connects Termini Station with a variety of sights in central Rome, ultimately ending up by the Vatican. 

Due to the popularity of this route with tourists, it’s common for the bus to be packed and therefore an easy place for pickpockets to work their magic.

If you’re able to avoid this bus (or honestly, buses in general), I’d recommend doing so.

Otherwise, just ensure you have a firm hold on all your belongings (lock up your zippers if you need to!) and stay vigilant.

Avoid crowds and getting close to strangers

I know we’re all masters of social distancing by now, but that is honestly the #1 defense you have against pickpockets in Rome, who usually thrive on close contact/bumping into you as a distraction.

My most recent trip to Rome (July 2021) is the one where I felt safest because social distancing has become so normalized.

Remember, people can’t pickpocket you if they can’t get close to you, so try to always remove yourself from crowded situations.

Keep valuables out of sight

Leaving your phone on a terrace table, or your purse hanging on your chair are both easy ways to get your valuables stolen!

Sure, it’s easy to let your guard down when you’re trying to relax, but remember that keeping your valuables out like that can be an easy way for them to get snatched.

Whenever I’m dining anywhere, I always keep my bag between my feet so they’re hard to access, and make sure to not leave my phone out on the table (on my lap, under a big napkin is often a safer bet!)

hotel travellers roma

Bring a money belt

I’ve never been a money belt person because I find them uncomfortable, but this is a common accessory many travelers swear by to keep their most precious items safe.

My boyfriend bought this one for our trip and said it was light, secure & comfortable.

For me personally, I prefer the following methods…

Store your stuff in tough-to-reach pockets

Remember, pickpockets thrive on quick movements, so if you inconvenience them even in the slightest, your risk of theft decreases dramatically.

Instead of a money belt, I always have either:

  • A backpack with a zippered pocket in the back, which makes it inaccessible to anyone else when worn
  • A crossbody purse with a pocket on the backside, again making it inaccessible to anyone so long as I hold it close to me 
  • A jacket with inner pockets so it’s impossible to reach in without getting super super close

These anti-theft methods are a LOT more comfortable to me than a money belt.

hotel travellers roma

Buy some small locks to put around your zippers

Another great travel hack I’ve picked up over the years is simply buying a set of small cable locks like these and keeping one in each bag.

That way, you can quickly lock your zippers together in crowded situations and prevent anyone from randomly opening your bag.

Simple, but effective.

Know the emergency numbers

If you are wondering what the 911 equivalent is in Rome, here are the numbers to keep in mind:

  • 112: General European emergency number which will connect you to the relevant service you need
  • 113: Police
  • 118: Medical emergency

hotel travellers roma

Don’t accept bracelets from strangers

Particularly around tourist hotspots like the Colosseum and the Spanish Steps, there will often be men offering bracelets to you. Don’t take them!

They’re cheap bits of string that they tie on your wrist then demand payment for. In other words, they’re not free gifts.

Don’t accept free roses

On a similar note, if someone offers you a free rose, odds are that will also not be free and they’ll demand payment for it after.

This often happens to couples, when the rose is offered to one partner then payment is hounded from the other partner.

Food and Drink Tips for Rome

When in Rome, eating and drinking well is a must! Here are some of my best tips for making the most of Rome’s excellent food culture.

Make sure you try some classic Roman dishes

Rome is a huge metropolitan city with incredible restaurants representing tasty cuisines from around the world.

But if you’re anything like me, your main priority might be to eat quintessentially local dishes first and foremost.

If that’s the case – great news! There are tons of tasty dishes for you to try in Rome that the region is known for.

Here are some (note that the pasta shape can differ from restaurant to restaurant, hence why they’re in brackets):

  • (Spaghetti) Carbonara : Pasta with eggs, cheese and cured pork
  • (Tonnarelli) Cacio e Pepe: Pasta with cheese and pepper
  • Pizza Al Taglio: Rectangular pizza usually sold by weight
  • Suppli: Deep fried rice balls with tasty sauce inside
  • (Bucatini) All’amatriciana: Pasta with tomato, cheese, and cured pork
  • Trapizzino: A street food that’s like a hybrid between a pizza and a sandwich
  • Pasta Alla Gricia: Pasta with cheese, black pepper and cured pork
  • Porchetta: Slow roasted pork, often served in a sandwich

NOTE: The beauty of Roman cuisine is that it’s simple. I know some of these dishes don’t sound like much but trust me, they are SO GOOD. Make sure to try as many as possible!

hotel travellers roma

Dine away from main tourist attractions

It’s a good rule of thumb to follow in Rome that you should never eat near tourist hotspots, particularly restaurants arranged along main squares as these tend to have hyperinflated prices and mediocre food.

It makes sense after all – when your target market is tourists who aren’t likely to return, why bother trying too hard?

There are some exceptions of course! Particularly around the Pantheon – Armando was a great lunch spot with fair prices and absolutely delicious food. La Casa del Caffè Tazza d’Oro was also a wonderful coffee spot.

hotel travellers roma

Double check that places have prices on display before ordering

This may be the oldest scam in Rome’s “let’s extort tourists” playbook, but any restaurant with fair pricing will be transparent with their pricing.

If you come across a restaurant that doesn’t list prices upfront, then run for the hills.

Never assume “it can’t be that bad” because odds are they’ve omitted their prices for a reason and plan to charge you an extortionate amount, like this place which went viral for a 500 euro lunch bill.

hotel travellers roma

Make sure you reserve tables in advance

Rome is BIG on reservations. Virtually every restaurant we visited asked first if we had a booking, then only squeezed us in with hesitation… and this was at a very non-busy time! 

When regular crowds return to Rome, I can’t imagine getting a table at any highly reviewed place without a reservation in advance, so make sure to book a table (or ask your concierge to help). 

For those of you who fear making phone calls like me, there are a few online places you can book tables to, although note that many of the most popular restaurants in the city will only take phone bookings.

Here are some sites where you can make reservations online:

NOTE: Many websites will also have their own reservation info on their websites, so be sure to check on there as well.

hotel travellers roma

A quick check of reviews is a must

While I don’t believe reviews are accurate 100% of the time, I do think they’re very helpful for establishing patterns, especially when there’s a bunch of reviews all saying the same thing.

A quick search of the restaurant (even on Google Maps Reviews) can help prevent you from getting scammed or being subject to mediocre food/service.

Know that water won’t be free and they’ll ask if you want still or sparkling

When you sit down at a restaurant in Rome, often the first question asked is if you want water. 

If you do (and I bet you probably will after so much sightseeing), then be prepared that tap water isn’t really served in restaurants and the default will be bottled water that comes at 2-3 euros a bottle. 

Be sure to specify still or sparkling though – usually they will ask, but sometimes they’ll default to one or the other.

hotel travellers roma

Be prepared for the coperto and pane charge

Most restaurants in Rome will charge an additional fee per person (around 2-3 euros) as a “Coperto” charge.

You can think of this a service/sit-down fee, usually including bread too.

This is not a scam – it’s fairly standard, and evens out as tipping culture in Italy is very modest compared to North America, with rounding up or 5-10% being the max.

In fact, some restaurants even refused when we tried to tip! 

Make sure to enjoy aperitivo

Rome is a hectic city to explore, so make sure you take some time to enjoy yourself and unwind a bit!

Aperitivo is a classic ritual that is perfect for this – an early evening pre-meal drink intended to whet your appetite for dinner.

There’s a million and one terraces/bars where you can enjoy an aperitivo in Rome, but if you’re feeling especially fancy, consider booking a table at one of Rome’s top rooftop bars.

hotel travellers roma

Drink coffee at the bar

In Italy, “bars” aren’t restricted to alcohol-slinging establishments. In fact, most of them actually serve coffee. 

For a very budget-friendly caffeine fix, be sure to mimic the locals and order your coffee at the bar and drink it while standing.

While many places now offer a sit-down option (especially in touristy areas), sit-down coffees will cost you extra as these prices aren’t regulated and often not advertised. 

In contrast, having a coffee at the bar will usually be only 1 euro for a regular caffè (espresso shot) and 1.30-1.50 for a cappuccino.

NOTE: Takeaway options are also becoming increasingly popular, but it’s nicer to just drink it quickly at the bar and go.

hotel travellers roma

Know that one “Caffè” is one espresso shot

If you waltz into an Italian bar and ask for a “Caffè”, you will be given a single shot of espresso served black, not a drip coffee or anything like that which most bars will not have.

If this is what you want, then order “1 caffè”, rather than “1 espresso”. While they’ll probably understand what you mean, caffè will sound a bit more normal.

If you want something closer to a larger drip coffee, then a caffè americano (1/3 espresso, 2/3 water) is what you should order.

Know that Latte means milk

“Lattes” in Italy do not exist. In fact, that word on its own means milk, so you might be ordering yourself a giant…. milk.

Instead, the closest match to what you want is a “caffè latte”, which is espresso with hot milk and a bit of foam. A cappuccino is more common though (same concept but more foam).

Again, if this is a bar used to serving tourists, then they’ll probably clarify what it is exactly that you want, but I’ve had friends before who have been served literal cups of milk when ordering a latte… so be warned!

hotel travellers roma

Eat gnocchi on Thursday

Okay, this maybe isn’t a must, but if you want to stick to tradition, gnocchi is a dish conventionally consumed in Rome on Thursdays, to the point where more traditional restaurants will only offer it on Thursdays. 

Why Thursday? As with many things in life, it all goes back to religious tradition!

According to Catholic tradition, Friday was typically a day for abstaining from heavy meat dishes, opting instead for lighter meals like fish, hence why people would fill their stomachs with decadent gnocchi on Thursdays (like stocking up on calories).

hotel travellers roma

Understand the basic structure of an Italian menu 

When you see the word “menu” in Italy, often this refers to a set meal that includes multiple courses, so if you see something like “Menu – 25 euros” that means they are offering a set deal that is 25 euros, not that every dish costs that much.

Italian menus are fairly easy to understand – most are separated into the following:

  • Antipasto: Appetizers like cured meats, cheeses, etc.
  • Primi: Usually a carby dish like pasta or risotto
  • Secondi: Usually a meat-based dish
  • Contorni: Side dishes like roasted vegetables
  • Dolce: Desserts

If you are trying to have an indulgent 4 course meal the traditional way, then you would order some antipasto to start, a Primi, then a Secondi, and finally some dessert. 

Practically speaking though, it is completely normal to just have a Primi (a plate of pasta is plenty filling on its own) or a Secondi with a side dish. Don’t feel pressured to have a giant 4 course meal every time.

hotel travellers roma

Check out some food markets

If you want a true foodie adventure, then heading to one of Rome’s many food markets might be a great activity to add to your itinerary!

I love visiting food markets to get a feel for local culture, and of course to enjoy a more immersive food experience than just sitting down at a restaurant.

Here are some options for food markets in Rome to visit.

  • Mercato Testaccio: 100+ stalls selling ready-to-eat meals and fresh produce
  • Mercato Centrale: Centrally located right at Termini Station with lots of street food options
  • Mercato Trionfale: Rome’s largest food market, selling fresh produce rather than ready-to-eat meals
  • Mercato Campo de’ Fiori: One of Rome’s oldest food markets, with lots of fresh produce and goodies on display

Take a food tour

On a time crunch and want to try as many Roman specialties as possible? Then a food tour might be a great idea for something fun and unique to do in Rome!

I’ve been on many food tours in the past (sadly not any in Rome) but I’ve never regretted it.

Here are some options:

  • This Rome Street Food Tour 
  • This Trastavere Street Food Tour
  • This 4h food tour and wine tasting

hotel travellers roma

Take a cooking class

Last but not least, if you want to take a piece of Rome home with you, then booking a cooking class would be a great idea.

After all, feed a man some pasta and he eats for a day, teach a man to make pasta and he’ll be food coma-ing for the rest of his life.

… As they say.

  • This pasta and tiramisu workshop
  • This cooking class from the birthplace of Fettucine Alfredo
  • This countryside cooking class

Packing Tips for Rome

Not sure what to wear and what to pack for Rome? Here are my top Rome packing tips.

Good walking shoes are a must

I cannot explain to you how much walking you’ll end up doing, so comfortable shoes are much more important than cute stylish ones.

Rome is a city with uneven sidewalks and plenty of cobblestones, so it’s best to leave those heels at home.

Bring a water bottle

As I keep saying, visiting Rome in any season involves a lot of walking, which is why having a water bottle is essential for staying hydrated! 

Luckily, Rome is filled with “Nasoni” – free water fountains with cold & delicious water you can bottle up for free.

You’ll find them at virtually all major sights, and randomly around the city so there are plenty of opportunities to get tasty drinking water for free. 

hotel travellers roma

Bring a scarf (or two)

Again, the dress code for Rome’s churches is that your shoulders and knees need to be covered, so having a light scarf with you is an easy way to ensure you’re safe.

Plus, in a city with 900 churches, you might randomly stumble upon one that you want to explore, unplanned. 

NOTE: I suggest bringing one scarf if you’re wearing a longer skirt or dress, but maybe even two scarves if you’re wearing shorts and a tank top.

I recently saw a woman trying to go into the Vatican with only one scarf, but both knees and shoulders exposed. The security wouldn’t let her in until she found a weirdo way to tie her scarf that covered both areas (a truly impressive feat if you ask me).

hotel travellers roma

Make sure you have a universal adapter

Power sockets in Rome have two round holes and if you’re visiting from overseas, odds are you’ll need an adapter for your plugs to fit.

I’d strongly recommend buying a universal adapter  like this one  if you don’t have one already.

It’s cheap, can be re-used for every trip, and covers you in all situations. Definitely some of the best money I’ve ever spent!

DIY your own travel sized toiletries

This is a very basic  packing tip  I always recommend, but it’s very easy these days to buy small reusable bottles that you can fill with your own toiletries of choice.

This allows you to bring your favourite products with you, and saves needless one-use toiletries from ending up in the landfill.

Need help picking the right one? Read my guide to  reusable toiletry bottles  for more info.

Have a re-usable bag handy

You can’t go wrong with a tote bag or two, and I always like to keep one in each purse when I travel.

You never know when you’ll need an extra bag, whether to haul goodies back from the market or simply carrying whatever souvenirs you’ve gotten that day, so remember to pack some.

Bring protective wraps

If you’re travelling with an expensive camera, or anything else fragile, I highly recommend  these amazing protective wraps.

I bought mine a few years ago and use them every trip. They’re padded velcro wraps that you can use to protect…. pretty much anything! So handy and they don’t take up too much space.

Alternatively, you can also look into product-specific protectors, like  these awesome wine protectors  to ensure your precious cargo doesn’t break in transit.

Miscellaneous Travel Tips for Rome

Last but not least, I have some final Rome travel tips that don’t really fall into a particular category, but are VERY good to know. Here they are!

Bring cash but not too much at once

While these days, many bigger places will take card, cash is always handy to have for quick purchases like gelato.

I wouldn’t advise carrying more than 200 euros of cash with you at a time though in case you get pickpocketed.

Some visitors like this poor fella report losing 800+ euros in cash after getting pickpocketed in Rome… so yes, don’t bring too much cash at a time out with you.

hotel travellers roma

Prepare for the tourist tax

While small, the mandatory tourist tax in Rome is something to factor into your budget.

This is a mandatory tax paid per person per night, ranging from 3-7 euros depending on your accommodation. 

Because this tax is often asked for in cash, you might think it’s a scam (particularly when it’s just an AirBNB) but it’s definitely a real thing, and you are entitled to a receipt for it if you wish.

Your accommodation will usually tell you in advance what the tourist tax is, so come prepared!

Beware the “Pausa” 

Similar to the Spanish Siesta, you can expect many shops and restaurants in Rome to close in the late afternoon for a few hours, often between 1 and 4.

While you’ll certainly have no trouble finding food or supplies (Rome is a big city catering to tourists, so you’ll often find an option), keep this in mind as most places aren’t open continuously like we’re used to in North America.

hotel travellers roma

Public toilets often don’t have toilet seats 

So yes, I hope you’ve got a good squat game.

Looking for a flush? Check the floor or wall 

I find that Italian bathrooms can be very creative with hiding their toilet flush mechanisms.

While you’ll of course find standard flushes in many bathrooms, you’ll also encounter more unique ones like….

  • A random button on the wall
  • A random button on the floor
  • A random chain dangling from the ceiling

Confused about your faucet? Look for a floor pedal

Similarly, faucets and taps can be quite fun in public washrooms as well.

Often they will be activated through a floor pedal, which (if you ask me) is actually way more sanitary and smart.

Make time if your train leaves from Platform 25-29 at Termini Station

This is one of those oddly specific Rome travel tips that you can tell comes from a particularly traumatic experience.

This experience was me trying to catch a train on Platform 27 at Termini with 3 minutes to spare, thinking it would be close to all the other platforms.

…. This is not the case!

Platforms 25-29 are really far down the station, and I had to literally sprint for a solid 3 minutes to make it on time. I ended up just catching it – the train was in movement before I even caught my breath.

Binge on movies set in Rome before your visit

I love watching movies set in a place before I visit, and luckily with Rome, you have lots of options! 

So, before you head out, be sure to watch plenty of  travel movies  set there, like…

  • Eat, Pray, Love
  • The Lizzie McGuire Movie (of course!)
  • Angels and Demons
  • La Dolce Vita (a classic)
  • Roman Holiday (the film that propelled Rome to the top of most American bucket lists)

Use Instagram, Pinterest and Blogs to research more offbeat Rome activities

Guidebooks and Google are great, but if you really want to find Rome hidden gems that are specific to your interests, be sure to dig deeper!

I mean, if you’ve gotten this far on my blog, you’re probably off to a good start, but make sure you also sleuth through Roman Instagram accounts and blogs, in addition to Pinterest to find more great stuff to do.

You might find my guide on  How to Find Cool Stuff to Do Near You  helpful.

hotel travellers roma

Use Google Maps to save spots you want to see

Google Maps is an amazing resource not just for navigating a new city, but also for saving spots you might want to visit in the future.

One of my favourite  travel hacks  is starring every location I deem interesting on Google Maps. You can do this by pressing the Save button when you search up that spot.

This allows you to have a visual map of all the cool cafes, street art murals, attractions, restaurants, etc. that you’ve saved during your research, which means you can easily organize your itinerary/sightseeing.

I love doing this because I’ll often end up in new areas during my explorations, and I can just look at my map to see if anything interesting I read about happens to be nearby. Saves a lot of planning!

hotel travellers roma

… But beware when searching places by name only on Google Maps

A very peculiar thing I noticed when using Google Maps in Rome is that many businesses like to name themselves after famous landmarks/sights… and sometimes Google Maps will auto-suggest the wrong one!

So, for instance, you might find that searching “Spanish Steps” might lead you to the “Spanish Steps Apartments” if you’re not careful.

This is often the case too for sights that have a colloquial name known in English that isn’t recognized on Google Maps.

The Aventine Hill Keyhole (actually known as Buco della serratura dell’Ordine di Malta, or the Knights of Malta Keyhole) is a great example, because if you just type in “Keyhole” on Google Maps, you get directed to a bar!

No joke, I even found a bed and breakfast that had labelled itself as “Rome Fiumicino Airport” on Google Maps. Imagine getting those two mixed up!

So, just double check before navigating that you are indeed being directed to the place you thought (easy to verify through swiping through reviews and photos).

hotel travellers roma

Lastly, visit more of Italy Besides Rome 

Okay, here’s a bonus Rome tip: I beg you to explore more of Italy than just Rome!

I adore Italy and it has so many diverse destinations to offer, from the mighty lakes and mountains in the North to the gorgeous coastal towns like in Cinque Terre and the Amalfi Coast.

From Rome, you can do day trips to Tivoli (or more ambitiously) to Naples, Sorrento , and Pompeii.

With a bit of extra time, you can also schedule in a wonderful few days along the Amalfi Coast. In fact, this is one of my favourite 1 week in Europe itineraries. 

So, remember – roam beyond Rome!

Travel expert shares when solo travellers should ask for a hotel room change

A travel expert revealed when guests should request a hotel room change.

In a viral TikTok video, travel writer and content creator Patrice (@patricejwill) advised that solo travellers avoid staying in a hotel room that has been announced by a hotel clerk or front desk employee in the lobby – accidentally or not – for safety concerns. She said that it is best to request a room change just in case there will be unwanted visitors, especially for women who are travelling alone.

“The reason behind that is that the front desk attendant should never say your room number out loud,” she explained. “Never. You might think that’s really excessive, but hotel lobbies, even if it’s not busy, there are other travellers. Sometimes hotel lobbies even include people who aren’t guests at the hotel.”

“There is no reason at all for someone who works at the hotel to say your room number out loud,” she added. “They should just be able to slide you your key.”

Most experienced hotel personnel will be understanding about a room change, Patrice noted, given that the travel tip is common knowledge among frequent travellers and hospitality professionals.

“Politely let that person know,” she continued. “‘Hey, can I change my room?’ You don’t have to make a big deal out of it, it’s fine, but [say], ‘You know, hey, can I change my room? I would just prefer that my room number isn’t announced out loud.’ That is it.”

In the video’s comment section, many hospitality workers noted that they were trained not to say a guest’s hotel number out loud, and if they did, it was likely a slip-up. One wrote, “I worked at the front desk and we were trained never to say the room number.”

“I used to be a front office supervisor at a hotel and that is the first thing we train them on,” another person added. “NEVER say the room number out loud!”

However, despite some comments saying that it’s industry standard to respect guest privacy, quite a few users claimed that they had had their hotel room numbers announced out loud in the past.

“I’ve definitely been to hotels that said my room number out loud,” someone wrote. “I’ve never thought of this.”

“I think they’ve done that every hotel I’ve ever stayed at,” another person commented, while a third added: “I’ve overheard so much personal info for guests from front desk folks in lobbies. I was shocked.”

Travelling alone – especially as a woman – can come with its own set of trials and tribulations like fielding unwanted attention or having your safety at risk when that unwanted attention turns into something more sinister like trafficking. The National Consumers League advises that all travellers educate themselves on the “warning signs” of human trafficking and “register with the local US embassy” when travelling abroad.
