The Eternal City, Rome has a rich history stretching back millennia. Over the centuries, it’s been rebuilt and rebuilt (and then rebuilt again), creating layers and layers of history for the modern-day traveler to explore. Wandering through the city, it seems like every time you round a corner, you come across an ancient column or ruin. While the history is a major reason to visit, and with seemingly countless sights to visit, Rome is also an incredible city for food, bursting at the seams with delicious restaurants at every turn (Trastevere is my favorite neighborhood for dining out). But no matter your reasons for visiting Italy’s capital, one decision that will greatly impact your experience is your choice of hotel. Rome is a big city with a ton of great neighborhoods and hotels to choose from, but not all of them are created equal. So, today I wanted to share some of my favorites to help you find the best option for you. Here is my list of the best hotels in Rome:

  1. Loly Boutique Hotel Roma

    This boutique property is located in Trastevere, my favorite part of town. A former working-class district filled with cobblestoned alleyways, in recent years it’s become a bohemian hot spot for foodies and tourists wanting to go beyond the big-name attractions. Loly Boutique Hotel Roma is super quiet, and the rooms have a lot of natural light, beautiful modern decor, and comfortable beds. The lobby is exquisitely decorated and breakfast is included. It feels more like a five-star hotel than something midrange. The owners and staff are really friendly and helpful too. Book here!

  2. Colosseo Prestige Rooms

    This hotel is located in Monti, a neighborhood that’s smack in the city center. As the very oldest part of Rome, it’s filled with winding cobblestone streets, antique stores, quirky cafés, intimate bars, and shops to explore. Colosseo Prestige Rooms has friendly owners and a gelato bar at the back of the building. This property is clean and new, which makes up for the fairly small (but nicely decorated) rooms. All rooms are air-conditioned, with a desk, coffee machine, fridge and minibar, flat-screen TV, and a private bathroom (there’s even a bidet in each one). Book here!

  3. Eurostars Roma Aeterna

    Right on the Piazza del Pigneto, the namesake of the neighborhood, this hotel used to be a pharmaceutical factory. Less than a 15-minute tram ride from the center of Rome, the area is colorful and full of interesting street art and murals that’s had a hipster makeover in recent years. As for the hotel, it has huge rooms decorated with minimalist but stylish décor, offers a delicious breakfast, and has a decent gym too. Book here!

  4. Luxury on the River

    Despite its name, this is a midrange hotel (although it is located on the river). There’s real Italian flare to the décor, and the hotel boasts a cozy lounge and library as well. The staff here are super helpful, and the rooms are quite large and airy. As for the neighborhood, Prati is close to St Peter’s Square and the Vatican and includes Via Cola di Rienzo, one of the most well-known shopping streets for high-end brands. Prati is also an area where you’re less likely to find hordes of tourists, so if you want a quieter area to stay in, especially at night, this is it. Book here!

  5. Crossing Condotti

    Situated just around the corner from the famous Spanish Steps, Crossing Condotti is a small and elegant boutique hotel with an entrance off a quiet street. It has beautiful antique décor and parquet floors, and if you’re traveling with kids, you can stay in the adjacent building, which has convenient suites comprised of two connecting double bedrooms. Staying here means you might not get a particularly “local” feel for what it’s like to live in Rome, but you’ll be near many of the places you’ll want to visit, so it’s very convenient. Strolling back to your hotel, you’ll pass historic sites, venerable architecture, and endless options for dining. Book here!

  6. Hotel Laurentia

    If you want to stay somewhere budget-friendly with a fun vibe, then San Lorenzo (which is walking distance east of the city center) is the neighborhood for you. Located in the liveliest section of the neighborhood, this hotel offers spacious rooms (ranging from singles to quadruples) with a simple but elegant look. The rooms have large bathrooms, comfy beds, desks, and flatscreen TVs. The dining area also has an interesting design, with large brick arches dividing it into somewhat separate sections for privacy while you eat. Book here!

  7. Monti Palace Hotel

    This stylish hotel includes a complimentary and wholesome buffet breakfast and a rooftop bar with gorgeous views of the city. The rooms are spacious, sleek, and well lit, with a lot of wood, natural light, and a voguish modern design. This neighborhood is right in the center of the city too, so you’re close to all the major archaeological sites. If you want to be near those (as well as the main train station), this is the perfect hotel to choose. Book here!

  8. Hotel Royal Court

    Offering incredible value, this four-star hotel is located on the Termini Station side of the San Lorenzo neighborhood. It has an art nouveau look, with wood flooring and period furniture, and many of the rooms have really unique furnishings. The rooms and bathrooms are large; the quadruple rooms are a great option for family trips. Book here!

Rome is one of the most iconic cities in the world. I love everything about it, from the tucked away restaurants serving delicious food to the cobblestoned streets lined with millennia of history. And by staying at one of the hotels I recommended above, you’ll be to fully enjoy your trip to the Eternal City knowing you’ve got a great place to lay your head after a long day of exploring.
