Rome Accommodation

Jump to last reply

We (my OH and I) are doing a cruise next year, finishing in Rome in early June. We plan on extending our time in Rome by 2-3 days, and are looking for accommodation suggestions and ideas. We’ve researched the usual websites (tripadvisor, booking.com etc) but are overwhelmed both by the number available and the prices. We’ve noticed, too, that B&Bs seem (generally) to get better reviews than hotels, and of course are better priced. So we’d be prepared to consider a B&B too, as long as it’s within 10-15 mins walk to a metro station into the central sights.

To give an idea of what we might be looking for, in Paris (a city we’ve visited several times) we generally spend about €100 a night. In the past, this has got us an OK stay at the Familia Hotel (Latin Qtr), and excellent stays at Le Relais du Marais (near Republique) and St Jeanne-d’Arc (Marais District). If we can find anything in Rome to match these last two in standard, location, helpfulness and price, we’d be happy.

A B&B is a different experience of course. We tend to use them in the smaller towns and villages on our travels, and have struck some that were truly superb and some that were less so. What we look for in a B&B is comfort, friendliness, cleanliness, own ensuite, and a measure of privacy and independence.

Grateful for any ideas and recommendations. Thanks.
