Hi all, a couple questions here,

Can anyone recommend a decent hotel in Rome? We will be arriving in Rome, picking up a car and travelling for two weeks. On the way back, we'd like to drop off the car at the airport and take a train or taxi to a hotel that is within walking distance of the better/more interesting areas.

I've been to Rome many times but, have never actually spent time in the city so, I guess it's time I saw it.

Nedd a hotel that's clean, safe and under 100E, walking distance to sights etc.

Also any advice on what to see etc with 2 days to kill would be a great help.

Thanks,

Dan

Dan, I stayed at a share apartment in the Termini area which was one block back from Santa Maria Maggiore. The apartments are run by the bee-hive hostel. http://www.the-beehive.com/ The apartment had three bedrooms (double) a share bathroom and a fully equiped kitchen all for 60euro a night.

The location was great with the colosseum and forum within walking distance. I even walked all the way to piazza navona,trevi fountain, Spanish steps from there (I love to walk everywhere) but there are heaps of train stations nearby as well.

I think a share apartment is a great option and is a great way to get to know the city.

I was just going to recommend The Beehive! I had to pick up keys to an apartment there, and it looks like a lovely place - very clean and affordable. And just a 5-minute walk from Termini. Stay away if you're allergic to cats, though. I was sneezing within 5 minutes!

As Rish mentions, they also offer apartments around the city.
