Rome - looking for bargain 'family' hotels
We'd welcome any suggestions for kid-friendly hotels in Rome. We'll be finishing our 2-week trip on the island of Ischia with a couple of days in Rome. Timeframe is mid-June.

how many beds, how many rooms and what is your budget?

Alfredo1960 Feb 11th, 2007 06:27 PM

We would need 2 double beds, one or two rooms, and as for budget - I'd say best overall value. We don't really have a budget min/max. Ideally, some kind of apartment type of accommodation, but I understand they often require a three-night minimum?

I found Canali ai Coronari to be a good value. It's located just off of Piazza Navona so the location is terrific. We had two connecting rooms, each had its own bath, and one had twin beds and one had a queen bed. We paid less then 200 euros a night for both rooms in March 2005.

Our family of four stayed at Hotel Alimandi Vaticano last July. The room had two double beds and was spotless. This hotel is only a few years old, so the rooms and furnishings are in excellent condition. The family who runs it is very accommodating--they even invited us to join them for the final game of the world cup! The hotel is located directly across from the entrance to the Vatican Museum. You can check out their website at

You will notice 2 hotels on their site -a three star and a four star. We stayed at the four star. The quad room cost us 240 euros last July.

We stayed at the Hotel Miami in a quad room. We had two twin beds and then queen bed in a separate area. Very large room, beautiful bathroom, and very friendly/helpful staff. Would definitely stay there again.

Hotel San Carlo in the historic district is a good value and has doubles, triples and quad rooms. Santa Chiara is behind the Pantheon and has apartments as well as standard hotel rooms. Another resource is for further suggestions on Rome.

You probably know about this already, but just in case, check out for lots of variety and good rates.
