Bed & Breakfast

Apartments, Studio Apartments and Aparthotels

Single Bed Rooms

Single travellers sometimes have no choice but to pay the same price as a double/twin room. We have a separate page highlighting options across all hotel grades with rooms for one person.

Family Rooms

If you are a family or a small group it is possible to get larger rooms in most sectors. Choice is largest in the budget hotels, but we detail rooms for up to six people in all sectors.

Naples & Sorrento Hotels

Naples Hotel Accommodation

Naples is a large city but for the visitor there are just three main hotel districts, by the main railway station, in the historic centre and along the waterfront - the most exclusive location.

Sorrento Hotel Accommodation

Sorrento has a wide range hotels perhaps biased towards the luxury end of the hotel market but budget options are available.

Rome Hotel Districts

Colosseum / Roman Forum

A mix of hotel types available within walking distance of the Colosseum and Roman Forum. The Rione Monti district up the hill towards Termini Station has an authentic village like feel and is very popular.

Ancient City Of Rome (Spanish Steps / Trevi Fountain)

The old ancient city of Rome where the majority of what you came to Rome is located. The ancient buildings, narrow lanes with little/no traffic means nearly all hotels are small and with character.

Termini Station

Termini Station is the transport hub for both local transport and to the airports. It has more hotels than any other and prices are very competitive, spanning all hotel sectors.

Vatican City

On the other side of the river from the ancient city, the area around Vatican City has a wide range of accommodation, with a good number of small family owned Bed & Breakfasts.

Via Veneto / Villa Borghese

Perhaps the most exclusive district to stay in Rome. Many of the most expensive hotels in Rome are at the top of Via Venetto, adjacent to the parkland of Villa Borghese.

Hotels In Suburbs

Rome is highly seasonal. At peak periods rooms the centre is expensive. Choosing a hotel in the suburbs with good transport links and make dramatic savings for a small inconvenience.

Hotels For Motorists

Parking is almost an art form in the centre of Rome, no place for a visitor not used to the tight spaces and double parking. Find a hotel with parking and use public transport to get get around.

Fiumicino Airport

Rome Fiumicino airport is near the coast, west of Rome city centre about 25 kms distance. There is one hotel where you can walk to the passenger terminals and a few hotels with shuttles.

Hotel Chains In Rome With Multiple Sites

Accor (Ibis, Mercure, Novotel, Sofitel)

The French chain Accor has its Ibis, Mercure, Novotel and Sofitel brands represented in Rome. Ibis & Novotel options are for motorists only out on the Rome orbital road.

Best Western

In terms of numbers, the Best Western franchise is the best represented of the global chains with hotels in most of Rome's districts of 3 and 4 star category.

Holiday Inn / Crowne Plaza / InterContinental

The Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza 4 star hotels are away from the centre of the city in the suburbs. There is just the InterContinental La Ville Roma in the centre of Rome, one of the most expensive in town.


Like Holiday inn, most of the Marriott hotels are in the suburbs where there is space for facilities like swimming pools. The exclusive Marriott Grand Hotel Flora is the exception to the rule on the Via Veneto.
