Nice but not expensive hotels in rome?

  1. Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone has been to a nice hotel in Rome that would like to reccomend because I am thinking of going but I dont want to spend to much money for hotels. I prefer to shop instead.:love:

    Not expensive I mean around $80p.p per night.

    Any help would be appreciated
     
  2. With the dollar being so weak vs. the euro, finding a hotel in that price range may be hard. Let me do some checking for you. Do you mean $80 a night or $160 a night?
     
  3. Here are a couple suggestions:

    One, you could rent an apartment like this:

    The extra cost would be offset by the fact that you can save money on meals by eating in.

    The other suggestion is this:

    Its not exactly in the center of Rome, but the tram is just across the street and taking it you can get almost anywhere in less than five minutes. Next door to the hotel is an internet cafe and also a pizza parlor. Down the block is a grocery store that has about everything you'd want. The view from the window also is not too bad as right next to the hotel is part of a Roman aquaduct. The rooms are comfortable, but spring for the ones that are offered on the lower floors, as the higher up you move the worse the rooms get. This hotel also offers a decent complimentary breakfast.
     
  4. I stayed at Yellow Hostel while in Rome, if you don't mind sharing a room with other travellers, it's ghetto cheap (e.g. under 25 Euro a night) plus you get breakfast in the morning !
     
  5. Thanx girls!

    I meant around $160 per room per night. I want something decent because I am going with my fiancee and I want him to be able to spend some time in the room while I shop.:love:
     
  6. Also, try the Albergo Lunetta. I stayed there for about 8 months a few years ago. It's near Piazza Navona. Perfect location!
     
  7. try to look at
    www.ryanairhotels.com
    you may find something nice and they also list very expensive hotels
     
  8. The last time we went we stayed here:

    It may be a bit more than $160.00 a nite, but the advantage is that it is located smack in between the Fountain of Trevi and the Pantheon...right in the heart of shopping territory. The rooms are nice (with soundproof windows - keeps out the buzzing of Vespas), the service is pleasant, and they have a pretty sizable complimentary breakfast.
     
  9. If you can afford that, then definitely go the apartment route! Especially if your fiancee will be there by himself, he'll be more comfy!
