About this Hotel

Price From $74

'Hood On a side street just a few blocks from Rome's main train station, Termini. It's a hectic area that's convenient, if a little seedy.

The Gist A modest family-run property that's been around since 1969 and offers a range of accommodation options: dorm-style rooms that sleep four people, and standard rooms that sleep from one to four people, with either shared or private baths. Online reviews note the central location, clean rooms, and tough-to-beat prices, but also point out the lack of an elevator.

Free Wi-Fi? No.

Credit Cards Accepted AmEx, MC, Visa.

Details Dorm rooms from $31 (€21) per person, doubles with shared bath from $74 (€50), doubles with private bath from $89 (€60), including breakfast.

Thanks for Sharing Reader Lynn writes "The hotel is spotless, quiet, and affordable." She appreciates the free access to computers in the lobby, the accommodating staff, and the ample breakfasts—"great coffee, and we still sigh over the fresh buns with butter."
