The Best Hotel in Central Rome

Which part of Rome should I stay in?

Trastevere is my favorite, a charming neighborhood with a lively village feel and yet it is near to all the main sights.

Which hotel in Rome do you recommend?

I've received so many requests asking for advice on hotels in central Rome that I've listed a few of the hotels I can recommend with confidence on this page. The hotels range from three to five stars. The first one, the Santa Maria, is my favorite. But be careful to book the one on this page because there are many hotels, apartments and B&Bs in Rome with Santa Maria in the name. 

The Hotel Santa Maria

Hotel Santa Maria Rome

If you don’t want to spend huge amounts on a hotel in Rome but still want somewhere superb, then I would suggest the Santa Maria. a charming little place a short walk from many lovely restaurants and most of Rome's tourist attractions.

The garden, pictured above, is unforgettable. Enjoying breakfast with the heady scent of orange blossoms in the air on a warm spring morning is super special.

I almost forgot: the free bikes are great too.

Santa Maria Hotel in Rome

Donna Camilla Savelli

Hotel Donna Camilla

Immerse yourself in the history of Rome with a stay at this superb hotel located in a 17th century monastery designed by Borromini, one of the most famous architects of the period.

The monastery has been lovingly restored into a hotel that is spotlessly clean and quite the most charming in Rome.

Lovely gardens provide a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. For more reviews, maps and booking details click here.

Palazzo Manfredi

Manfredi Hotel

I have to admit I've never stayed here, but I did visit their restaurant, at sunset, sipped an aperitivo and watched the Colosseum turn golden - that pretty much sold me on the hotel. The tour around afterwards convinced me that, if you have the money, then this will be the cherry on top of any stay in Rome.  Here are all the details.

Of course, you've also got some of the top sights in Rome on your doorstep, including the Colosseum and the Cat Aristocracy of the Temples.

Trevi Beau Boutique Hotel

Trevi Fountain by Emanuele Serraino

Get much closer to the Trevi Fountain and you'd be in it!  You couldn't be better located for the sights of Rome and you've got restaurants galore on your doorstep. The only problem is that there is no elevator; therefore, ask for a room on the lower floors if stairs are a problem, although be prepared for a bit of noise if you are on one of the lower floors, particularly in room 102 as there is a restaurant right below that room.  Here's everything you need to know about the Trevi Beau Boutique Hotel.


Suite Sistina, Rome

No luxury hotel in central Rome is more romantic than this one.

Amazingly stylish, with an incredible breakfast and a free mini-bar to top it all off, and the hotel staff are among the friendliest I've ever encountered in a Rome hotel.

Treat yourself and someone you love to decadent luxury in a city where love seems to infuse the very air you breathe. The perfect hotel for that honeymoon in Rome.

Rome Boutique Hotel

Excellent value and perfectly positioned to explore the best shopping streets in Rome, our shopping in Rome guide can help you with that too.  

Certainly one of the best boutique hotels in central Rome and the rooms are very well appointed and spotlessly clean. Staff really go out of their way to make your time in Rome special.

Not my top choice in Rome but certainly well worth considering.  For more reviews, maps and booking details click here.
