Traveling alone -- Best place in Rome to Stay

Hi,

I have a family member traveling to Italy this summer. At the end of her trip she will be in Rome alone for 3 days. Any suggestions on best areas to stay for a person in her late 20s who is traveling alone? This is her first trip to Italy and Rome is at the end of a trip to the Amalfi Coast.

Thank you!

Are you interested in a b&b or a hotel? Or either?

Buon viaggio,

Last year we stayed at the IQ Hotel. It is very clean and the staff is quite friendly and helpful. It is very near the Termini Station and the hop on hop off bus. We will stay there again next year

DH and I enjoyed:

1. The Raphael. It is more expensive but is a stone's throw from Piazza Navona: Hotel RaphaŽl - Relais & Ch‚teaux 5 stelle lusso | Hotel nel Centro Storico di Roma

2. We love Hotel Isa. It is across the Tiber and very near a bus hub. Lots of places to eat: Isa Design Hotel Roma - Hotel 4 Stelle Roma Centro Vaticano

Late 20s alone may want to look into youth hotels which have private rooms but commons areas where great to meet others her age. Hotels can be isolating. Check Let's Go Europe for recommendations - some can be very neat and cheaper for solo than hotels.

Since 2009 we've stayed at the terrific b&b called Armonio A' Opera on Via Viminale across the street from the Rome Opera House. The property in immaculately clean and comfortable. Paolo, the owner speaks English since his mother is from England. All of the furnishing are manufactured by his family's company.

Just downstairs is Ristorante Al' Amatriciana, which is one of my favorite places to eat in Roma.The metro is about a five minute walk at Piazza Repubblica and Stazione Termini is about a 10-15 minute walk. The street is very safe and quiet.

Buon viaggio,

What is she interested in? Budget?

Interests might push the issue one way.. Budget differently.
