It has been said that Rome is one of the most expensive cities to stay in, within Europe. While this statement is partly true, there are still plenty of affordable hotel rates in Rome for the average traveller.
The city is home to many internationally-known hotel chains (Hilton, Marriott, Best Western, Novotel, Holiday Inn) as well countless independent hoteliers. Outside of the Termini station (Central railway station) are many cheap and cheerful hotel options, often recommended for students and business travellers.
Some of the most exclusive boutique hotels in Rome are located around the Spanish steps and the Piazza di Spagna. Similarly, west of Via del Corso, the Trastevere quarter and the area surrounding the Vatican house upscale, intimate properties.
Luxury abounds at the hotels surrounding the Via Veneto. These properties are often the most expensive and luxurious in all of Rome. The hotels surrounding the Aventine, or next to Villa Borghese park provide tranquility and a quiet break from exploring the hectic city streets.
You may be surprised to learn that Bed and Breakfasts are a relatively new concept within Rome. Residents will open their homes and spare bedrooms to travellers at rates that are quite comparable to that of a hotel room.
Youth hostels are by far the cheapest hotel rooms in Rome – although you don’t necessarily get an actual room. Rates start from as low as 17 Euros per night, for a bed in a dormitory style room with shared bathroom and living facilities.
Apartment rentals are quite common and surprisingly affordable in Rome. Not only do they help to keep accommodation costs low but they also allow you to experience Roman home life. Apartments are routinely outfitted with most major household appliances, all necessary linens and needed kitchen items like cutlery and cooking utensils.
The majority of campsites are located outside of the city and not well situated to explore Rome; however, there is one campsite located within city limits. Village Flaminio is located near the Olympic Village, just 6 km north of Rome’s centre.
