Hi there, I'm hoping to go to Rome on next to nothing money.... The flight as I am sure you are all aware is very cheap with ryanair.. BUT
I am looking at accomodation. I really don't want to spend over 60 euros per night for a double room. I'm with my girlfriend and so a youth hostel is out the question, but certainly a scrubby bed and breakfast will do. I just want a private room with a double bed and a roof that is cheap. I also don't want to travel much more than 5 minutes in a taxi to get there or better still if it is near a train station or tube station near the city centre that would be perfect. It doesnt matter if the place is falling down, so long as we don't have to share a room.
Please excuse me if I am being neive to what things are like, this is the first real traveling I will have done. I've been to a few places but not like this.

Any ideas???

If anybody has any useful websites or contact email adresses for b&b's or something that would be great. Thanks for your help

Mark

Don't rule out hostels right away. A lot of hostels have private bedrooms, but you might have to share a bathroom..
I don't really have any recommendations, but I just wanted to point that out :)

Thanks for that, like I said I don't know anything about that sort of thing, hostels that have a double bed in a private room with a shared bathroom would be not a problem at all!

Sugestions anybody?

I really don't know where to start with this

Try http://www.plusvillages.com/ - it is a camping site with bungalows for rent. It is a bit out, but they have got a nice, Tesco-style supermarket right across the street (cheap food!) and good public transport connections. Bus stop is right at the entrance and it is only 10 min by bus to the Vatican. The bungalows are nice and clean and they currently have a winter special for stays of 4 nights and longer which makes them the cheapest place to stay for a couple in all of Rome: 100 EUR for 2 people in one of their 2 Bed Cabins with ensuite bathroom if you stay for 4 nights. That is 12,50 EUR per person and night. You'll be hard pressed to find hostel bed for this rate!

There are quite a few pensiones around the central train station, and they're pretty reasonable. Just walk around and ask - we had a clean one which was very basic for EU60 for 3 beds, and there were 3 of us which worked out nicely.

Check out Cross-Pollinate. Someone here recommended it - there's some good deals to be had.

I just reserved a dorm bed for July at a hostel called The Beehive. It looks really nice, especially for the price, and they have private rooms as well.

Quoting laurim

I just reserved a dorm bed for July at a hostel called The Beehive. It looks really nice, especially for the price, and they have private rooms as well.

I had to pick up the keys to the place we rented at The Beehive. It looked very nice- clean and modern and interesting. They have cats, though, in case you're allergic to the things.

What's a pensione?

I am really nieve when it comes to this sort of stuff. And I was talking to a few friends over teh weekend and they were saying they went traveling round Thailand and teh hostels there were cheap and private rooms but they had to strip the bed sheets off becasue they were really dirty. Does that go for the world over or is that just thailand. I really don't know how my girlfirend would react to having to sleep under sheets where there is evidence that the night before some couple were having fun inder if you get my meaning.

Or are most places cleaning the bed sheets on a daily basis?

Cheers

p.s you're all a great help... thanks.:)

A pensione is like a small hotel or a bed and breakfast..

Most hostels have clean sheets. Sometimes you rent them off the hostel and you make your own bed..
I've never had any trouble with dirty sheets in hostels in Europe..
