A cheap Rome hotel in the heart of the city


If you want everything from your hotel: A super-central location, a unique view and a good price… you want the Hotel del Sole. It’s situated about a minute’s walk from Campo de’ Fiori and less than ten minutes from Piazza Navona. From here you can easily reach the rest of Rome’s tourist attractions both on foot and by public transport.

How does that location sound? Well you haven’t been up to the roof terrace yet (check out the photos below if you don’t believe us). You can have breakfast with views of the church domes and enjoy the scenery in complete peace.

If you don’t know where to go for dinner, you can do your research in the pleasant surrounds of the hotel’s inner courtyard, perhaps sipping on an aperitivo. Like we said, la Dolce Vita…

A budget-friendly hotel in Rome close to the stunning Villa Borghese


Perfect for… those who love staying somewhere welcoming in the city centre.

The Lilium is one of Rome’s best-kept secrets: A small budget hotel in the Sallustiano district, a stone’s throw from Villa Borghese and Via Veneto.

What makes this hotel’s atmosphere so special are the rooms decorated in different colours, each representative of a flower, and the welcoming communal areas, adorned with big windows and little Art Nouveau style wrought iron balconies.

If you love a good espresso, take a look at the striking brass coffee machine that towers over the breakfast room. It isn’t just beautiful to look at; the coffee is so good it will give you the energy you need to take on all the wonders of the Galleria Borghese not far from the hotel.
