Albergo Santa Chiara

Via Santa Chiara 21, Rome, Latium, 00186, Italy

If you're looking for a good location and top-notch service at great rates—not to mention comfortable beds and a quiet stay—look no further than this historic hotel, run by the same family for some 200 years. Guests choose it not only for its prime spot behind the Pantheon and across the way from Santa Maria sopra Minerva, but also because of its warm and welcoming staff. The decor is nothing to write home about: the lobby is an all-white affair with furniture you might find in your grandmother's house, and some rooms are a bit bland. For families or those looking for a bit more space, Santa Chiara also rents out three apartments, for two to five people, with full kitchens. Most, but not all, of the rooms have small showers (and no bathtubs), even the suites. If you'd like more room when you're scrubbing down, request on booking.
