Where to stay in Rome?

We will be in Rome May 23-June 10, and are looking for an inexpensive place to stay in the city center for 3-4 days when we arrive. We'd like modest room/s in a small hotel, near Piazza Navona. Does anyone have a recommendation? // Also, we think to spend several days in Sant'Agata Sui Due Golfi. If anyone has been there recently and has a lodging recommendation, thanks! How about Matera? // We plan to travel by train -- any advice about that?

Hi Leanora.

I just returned from Rome a few days ago with my girlfriend and we stayed in a wonderful small hotel called Residenza Cellini. It's family run by a woman and her two brothers, and they were truly wonderful. I don't know what modest means to you, this might be in your price range or out of it, but the price was E165/night for a double. Regardless, we spent time all over Italy for 2 weeks in hotels of similar cost, and this was the shining star of the trip. Hope this helps!

We just came back from Rome, stayed at a hotel called "Pensione Parlamento" recently appeared in an article "12 Rome Hotels Under $135" in National Geographic Traveler. Paid 135 Euro for the first 3 nights at a rooftop room, then one night for 119 Euro at a lower room. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Location is great, less than 10 min walks from Trevi, Spanish Step, Pantheon, Piazza Navona... Though the rooftop room gave you the direct access to rooftop garden at anytime, the view wasn't all that great. On our last night, we were moved to a room facing the inner court yeard, which was much quieter (rooftop rooms facing the busy street) and much cheaper. The size of both rooms are about the same, but the cheaper room was more recently renovated and has a much better bathroom. Wish we had seen the cheaper room earlier. However, we were glad to have stayed in this hotels regardless, and would gladly stay here again next time.
Ciao.

Stayed at Hotel Cesari last year - location was fabulous-1-2blocks from Pantheon, Trevi, about 3-4 blocks from Piazza Navona.It's in a courtyard that's pedestrian-only and surrounded by pedestrian only section in one direction; yet. 1/2 block away is trafficked street with bus stop if you want to travel that way.After 4 days of walking around Rome,can't imagine staying in any other area.Good size rooms,very clean,frig with wine/beer/snacks,shower,hair dryer,toiletries,very nice staff.Not sure what price is but gave corporate discount so you may want to check that out.

Another suggestion: Hotel Smeraldo. It's adjacent to Campo dei Fiori, which itself is close to Piazza Navona. The hotel is nice, it's quite affordable, and the rooms are clean and well maintained. The rooms/bathrooms are on the small side, but I guess that falls under the category of "modest," as you mentioned.
