Going to Rome...need hotel ideas

Hi All,
I'll be in Rome over Easter and am looking for affordable,safe, and clean hotels/B&B's. Any suggestions would be great.

Please give us more info as to location and price. You may want to look at www.venere.com - put in the dates you will be there and see what is available - I would think Rome at Easter is very crowded and you need to get busy on reserving a hotel. SueC1

While an inexperienced or first-time traveler might reasonably be expected to answer "I don't know" on the location question, you really do need to provide price expectations. "Affordable" just doesn't mean anything, spanning the broad range of expected lodging expense usually discussed here on this forum.

Venere lists 461 hotels for Rome; when you sort by price, the first 57 (15%) come to the "top" of the sort, with no rates listed. After that, you have roughly four quartiles:

Numbers 58-164 at 70 euro or less, per room per night

Numbers 165-255 at 72-90 euro per room per night

Number 256-360 at 91-130 euro per room per night

and numbers 361-461 above 130 euro.

This top quartile subdivides into

361-426 at 131-180 euro


427-460 (begins with Cesari) at 185-390, and the Hassler at 572.

Of course, in every hotel, there are rooms that are MORE expensive, and there may be no availability at the ("starting from"...) rates shown in this listing. On the flip side, in some cases, there may be promotions to provide rooms at rates lower than this.

By the way, I don't actually recommend sorting the Rome listing by price - - makes more sense to look at it by locations, and the Centro Storico (includes what Venere calls Trevi, Piazza Navona and Pantheon) is the area favored by more Fodors forum visitors.

Interestingly, I think that 90% of the attention on this forum is directed to the hotels in the top quartile of this price horizon.

Best wishes,

I stayed in the Quirinale and was very happy. The room was very pretty and large by Italy standards, the bathroom was large too and there was a chandelier in our room. Just be sure to ask for a room that's not facing the street - when heavy traffic went buy I could feel it in bed. Great buffet breakfast. I booked it via Italiatour.

My friend was so thrilled when she saw our room she paid for my dinner as a thankyou for my good job in planning the trip.

We stayed at The Hotel San Carlo in the Spanish Steps area. It was very reasonably priced, located in a great area and nice.

You don't say how long you are staying or how many are in your party. That being said, an apartment might better serve your needs.Our party of 5 stayed 5 nights near the Vatican for 150 euros per night in 2003. Independent air conditioning was wonderful in July!
