Seven budget hotels in the heart of Rome

In a city where in every corner there is a Roman ruin, a Bernini statue, a baroque church or an amatriciana dish, it is difficult to choose the best place to stay.

Is it possible to find a hotel in Rome that is at the same time convenient and from which you can easily reach all points of the capital?

Fortunately, we are answering this question, suggesting the hotels that are more convenient and well connected to Rome. You just have to decide what to see first: the Fori Imperiali  (Imperial Forums) or the Musei Vaticani (Vatican Museums), eating a cacio e pepe (pasta with cheese and pepper) or a grincia. So be prepared to start living the Dolce Vita!

Lilium Hotel ★★★ | 4.2/5
