Hotels in the suburbs of Rome can offer much better rates than hotels in Rome city centre.

Hotels in Rome city centre can be expensive, particularly in the peak visitor months when cheap hotels in Rome is a relative term.

Only a few miles away in the suburbs there are modern, comfortable hotels offering a more spacious environment often for a fraction of the cost.

The only downside of course is getting into the city centre every day. The answer is to find a cheap hotel within walking distance of a Metro Line, typically taking only fifteen-twenty minutes to go wherever you want to go in the centre of Rome.

Getting to central Rome when staying in the surburbs

The good news is that public transport in Rome is reliable, very comprehensive and doesn't shut down in the evening. It is also reasonably priced, especially if you purchase a Rome public transport pass.

Metro trains run approximately every 4-10 minutes, from 5.30am until 11.30pm every day (until 12.30am on Saturdays). So for the vast majority of people you are not restricted by hurrying to catch the last train of the day. The Rome Metro struggles to meet demand though; expect overcrowding, even at off-peak times.

A lot of the large global brands like Holiday Inn, Sheraton, Marriott and Crowne Plaza have their hotels also in the suburbs. These invariably are in spacious grounds with swimming pools and resort style facilities.

However if you are on a budget they can be very frustrating with restricted (if any) shuttles to the city centre or expensive taxis as the only way to get to the places you came all this way for. None are convenient really for using public transport.

Rome also has a small network of regional commuter trains that offer on most lines frequencies several times an hour. The main drawback with these is that unless you are in the southern suburbs all the trains loop around the edge of Rome to the junction at Tuscolana south of Rome before heading into the Central Rome Station, Termini.

Most of these lines will interchange with the Rome Metro as they loop around Rome. Unless you are a long way outside Rome, the Rome public transport passes will also cover these trains, though note both airports are not within coverage.
