rome hotel for a week?

Hi.. i've been reading every post.. and still have not come up with accommodations for our week-long stay in Rome. I would LOVE to stay at Albergo Del Senato.. however, our budget does not allow for $320/night (times 2). It is so beautiful and in a perfect location.. but.... any other suggestions? It will be the 3rd week in Sept. thank you so much for your help. (its my husbands and my first time in Italy!! yeay!! oh - and traveling with my 70+yr old parents..)

What about looking for an apartment so you can all stay together. This could be a much less expensive option. There are many apartments close by to the Albergo and Piazza Rotunda. Try looking at Romeby.com. Also ParisPerfect now manage some apartments in Rome if you look on the web page for Paris Perfect and scroll down you will see them.

We stayed at the Albergo last Sept. and yes the location is perfect, try and get an apartment near by. It is very expensive though, would not consider a week there. Good luck.

The Daphne Trevi looks nice and gets rave reviews. I was going to stay there this May until I discovered they had a four-night minimum (I only need three nights). Their customer service is raved about, and they seemed very helpful via e-mail. A double room in May would have been 180EUR, with a ten percent discount for cash.
But, you might also consider the Domus Julia, which has an apartment and also two large double rooms. I did book from them for myself this May, and it is 170EUR. It is between the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain.

thank you!! Mom would prefer a hotel to apartment. why? I dunno. . . I am checking out the Daphne Veneto as they have a lift (Daphne Trevi does not).. it does look beautiful and good rates. I'm hoping to hear from someone who has stayed there (and I wish there was a picture of the building). So far, it looks like my favorite.

The bad news is now mom is thinking we should wait till November (less people)to take this trip (i'm anxious to go asap! its hard trying to plan with other person's involved..)

We were there 2/3rd week in September, yes it was busy but not the high season summer crowds. It was still quite hot but pleasant, so what I am saying is I thought it was a great time to go!! I wouldn't leave it until Nov - starting to get a bit cold and miserable weather wise. Maybe a compromise - October? (earlier rather than later)
