Reviews Of Hotels & Apartments In Rome

Visitors to Rome have a wide choice of accommodation to choose from – on a nightly basis you can pay over €1000 for a high class hotel or as little as €60 for an apartment. Rome also has an abundance of Bed & Breakfast accommodation which at around €80 -€100 per night for a double room often represent particularly good value especially when compared with hotel prices which are far higher. Basic double rooms (1*) cost between €60 -€90, (2*) €80 -€140, (3*) €100 – €250, (4*) €120 – €400. Five star hotels starts at around €300 and can exceed €1000. These prices have risen steadily over the last few years but the credit crunch has stabilised them more recently.

A broad range of hotels are available near the Termini Station and in the Trastevere areas. Hotels in the middle price range dominate the Campo de Fiori area. Via Veneto and the Tridente areas are more exclusive price-wise.


Hotels In Rome

Probably one of the best hotels in Europe is the Rome Cavalieri at Via Alberto Cadlolo, 101 00136 Rome Telephone 39 063 5091. This truly luxurious establishment which offers guest rooms, suites furnished to the very highest standards has all the usual facilities you would expect plus it own Art Gallery. €1000 a night will go far here but have a look at their website and you might just be tempted.   Oh and the restaurant on the roof is something else .website  

One interesting establishment in the Campo de Fiori area is Hotel Campo de’ Fiori at Piazza del Biscione 6 Telephone 06 6880 6865. This is a three star establishment with a distinct air of elegance about it and their prices are reportedly negotiable. website

Hotel Reservation is s very efficient Italian Hotel reservation agency with a database of Rome Hotels of all standards. It specialises in discounted late booking offers when you can get 4* star accommodation at a 2 star price website.


Apartments In Rome

Apartment accommodation can easily be found where ever you want to stay Rome. In the winter which by European standards is normally mild  fairly decent apartments can cost as little as €60 per night though you can pay double in June and July. There are numerous agencies that you can book an apartment with and many are very negotiable when it comes to last minute deals. However as some of the agency’s are sharks you should check the booking details for additional charges before you part with the deposit – which is generally around 20%.

The most common additional charge is the an arrival fee for collecting the keys which you may not be aware of. As the apartments have to be serviced before you take them over they are usually available from midday or early afternoon. However if you cannot get they keys before 4 or 5pm the agency may ask you for additional ‘late fee’ after these times. This fee can be anything between €40 and €60. So a delayed late morning flight could prove to be costly. One annoyed landlord said that the agency he used had charged a couple who arrived at midnight (because of the Terminal 5 fiasco) €90 which was more than he was charging for the apartment per night.

Generally the minimum rental period for an apartment is three nights but it is possible to get an apartment for 2 nights fairly easily if you ask outside the high season (July and August) especially if you are making a late booking.  Homes in Rome are thought by some to be fairly priced.


Backpacking Hostels In Rome

Backpackers in Rome have a very wide range of hostel accommodation across the city to choose from. Some hostels offer the standard dormitory accommodation but these days many offer private rooms with a shower which may or may not include a private wc. Many rooms include televisions as part of the deal whereas a few years ago this would have been an extra charge. There are several ‘youth hostels’ in Rome which offer very competitive rates for dormitory accommodation taken by larger groups such as students on school trips. Irrespective of price hygiene standards are generally good and communal facilities usually include air conditioning (very important in the summer ) and heating.

The downside of some hostels in Rome is that they expect you to tell them your arrival time and may if your late rent your rent your accommodation to someone else. Obviously this can be a problem particularly in June July and August when tourism to Rome peaks. It is therefore important to check what your hostels procedures are if you are delayed and what their refund policy is before you part with a deposit.

A good hostel (with affiliate hostels in Rome) that we aware of are include the Bella Roma Hostel at Via Accinni 63 (Via Privata) 00195 Telephone 06 3975 0599. Shared accommodation from around €15 and private rooms from €30. website

The 9 Rome Hostels website could also point you in the right direction.
