Stayed for a three night break in March. Rooms are very comfortable and clean. Hotel is walking distance from The Vatican, Colosseum and Parthenon. Great restaurants and bars on the doorstep but still retains a quiet atmosphere. Great value. Lovely breakfasts.

While it's not the fanciest, nor posh or modern, this hotel gets high praise from me for the caring staff. My son was pickpocketted the first night we arrived and the night desk clerk was extremely helpful trying to communicate with the polizia. We never got our stuff back but this guy really tried and for that I will be... More

Stayed 5 nights in Sept 2014. . We had arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport so there was no issues finding the place. No issues with check in. This is a great location. Close to a forno (bakery), across the way from a coffee shop/bar, restaurant, gelateria and 5 min walk to Campo di Fiori,... More

I thought that I had reviewed this hotel on our return , but better late than never. We stayed at this hotel in September 2013 before a cruise and were delighted with its location. Perfect being within walking distance to many of the Piazzas and restaurants. We decided to return to Rome in 2014 for a land holiday and chose... More

Spent 5 days in the hotel with my boyfriend (Both 18 years old) for our first trip to Rome. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, and organised taxi's for us to and from the airport for a reasonable price. The location is more than incredible! with just half an hours walk away from the Spanish steps, Trevi fountain, Vatican... More

The hotel is located in easy reach of the major attractions in Rome. There are lots of eateries, cafes, bars and small food stores near by. The Hotel is small with excellent reception staff and a lift to the upper floors. The hotel was clean as were the rooms which came with tvs. The small breakfast room is in the... More

We stayed at Hotel Smeraldo for two nights prior to our mediterranean cruise. From the moment we checked in the staff was very helpful and accommodating. We were early and they allowed us to check into our room early for no extra fees, they carried our luggage for us (we stayed in the annex portion of the hotel) and then... More

This small but elegant hotel is located between Pompey's Theater and Campo dei Fiori, and under 5 minutes from the Pantheon. Stayed here during a school trip to Rome and was able to access transportation as well as walk to the Tiber River. They have free wifi, a nice breakfast room and the staff is always courteous and ready to... More

Pros: location Cons: really small (claustrophobic) shower box; my room building was separated from the main building; my girlfriend was bitten by fleas. To sum up: it can't hardly be considered a 3 star hotel, but I paid 300 euros for 2 nights. It is worth maximum 80 euros per night. If there were half stars I would have given... More

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
