Palazzo al Velabro, www.velabro.it, near the Tiber and Jewish Ghetto area. Very convenient to the Forum, and walking distance to Trastevere, Pantheon, Vatican. It's an apartment hotel, which means you have a kitchenette. Does hav a/c. Would definitely stay there again. We had stayed at the Santa Chiara on our previous trip in 1998 and considered that again, but the Velabro was a lot less expensive and we like the idea of a small frig & the ability to cook something simple (altho we never did).

My husband likes to stay right by the Termini so that it is easy to get to all of the various sites. And we don't tend to spend much time in the hotel when we travel. We spent three nights at the Hotel Morgana and loved it. The room was small, but it was clean and comfortable. It was March, so I can't speak to air conditioning. We were off the back of the hotel over a courtyard so we were able to leave the windows open at night. Our friends were on the street and tended to keep them closed to block out the street noise. The breakfast was WONDERFUL. A buffet with lots of choices (meats and cheeses, rolls, croisants, cereal, yogurt, etc). The staff was fabulous - very helpful and gave us some marvelous restaurant suggestions (Nuovo Stella was the best). I would definitely stay there again. Actually, our friends changed their reservation for their last night prior to flying out and stayed at the Morgana again.

Our last night we stayed in a budget hotel right around the corner - the Hotel Scott House. It occupies the 4th and 5th floors of a building and I was pleasantly surprised. The room was big and the bed was the biggest we had the whole trip (and very comfortable) It was noisy since it was on the street side, but the windows were very well sealed and blocked out most of the noise. Can't speak to the breakfast because we had to leave at 5:30 in the morning to catch our flight. For a basic hotel in a central location - it was fine.
