Hotel Campo de' Fiori

Outside entrence of Campo de' Fiori

Comfy (if cramped) digs near party central in Rome, Italy

The location is primo: just off Campo de' Fiori, though since that has become one of Rome's top nightspots (lined by bars, pubs, vinerie, and late-night pizza parlors) the streets can stay noisy until quite late—like 2am—so be sure to request a room off the front. However, your opinion of how great a hotel it is depends largely on which room you snag.

Don't be afraid to ask to see several rooms, as some are blandly modern and carpeted while others sport brick arches and rustic wood-beam ceilings. Most are big enough, but there are a few cramped quarters barely big enough to fit the bed.

I'm partial to room 602 for its views across the domes and rooftops of Rome. No worries: everyone can enjoy the panorama from a communal roof terrace.

The owners also rent ten apartments scattered around this hip and happening neighborhood—all with kitchens and some with TVs but no phones—for longer stays and up to seven people.

Rome's hotel tax

In January, 2011, Rome began charging a hotel bed tax. This is the city's doing, and sadly it is not a scam.

The following tax rates are per person, per night for all guests over the age of 10 and can be charged for stays of up to 10 days:

  • 1–3 star hotels: €2
  • 4–5 star hotels: €3
  • B&Bs: €2
  • Apartments: €2
  • Rental rooms: €2
  • Agriturismi: €2
  • Campsites: €1 (up to 5 days)

So a couple staying three nights in a four-star room would pay an extra €18.

Some hotels have begun folding this tax into their quoted rates; others tack it on when you go to check out, so be prepared.

How long does Rome take?

Planning your day: Rome wasn't built in a day, and you'd be hard-pressed to see it in that brief a time as well. Still, you can cram a lot into just a day or three.

To help you get the most out of your limited time in the Eternal City, here are some perfect itineraries, whether you have one, two, three, or four days to spend in Rome. » Rome itineraries
