Nothing fancy. A straightforward simple hotel, typical Italian, a little bit tired. Room was nice and clean. Breakfast above Italian average but due to lack of space guests have to book a time slot. Main attraction of the hotel is its superb location, everything is in walking distance. Public transportation links are close by. Generally friendly staff except breakfast staff... More

Stayed for 4 nights in Jun 2015. Great little Hotel in an excellent area of Rome. Most attractions are within walking distance and there are lots of restaurants and shops nearby. Campo di Fiori is just a few blocks away and we loved the morning market as well as the evening restaurant patios. Breakfast was bountiful and delicious, but keep... More

Booked 3 nights there. After lugging luggage up two flights of stairs we were told there were mechanical issues and we were being put up in another hotel. They paid a cab that took us to the wrong hotel and left. The hotel they put us in was of lesser quality. Big understatement. We lugged suutcases up two more flights... More

We only had one full day in Rome and we decided to stay at a less expensive hotel since our time here was so short. The hotel is in the perfect location. Just a short walk to the Partheon and excellent restaurants. Bars, restaurants and everything within walking distance. Rooms were comfortable and we had everything we could need. Breakfast... More

Stayed here last year for three nights. Basic traditional Italian hotel . Good location central to most sites . Nice little pizza parlour across the road , cheap and tasty. Basic breakfast and lack of stairs are a downside to this hotel . After a day of walking a spiral staircase is not welcome !

This was my third visit to the Arenula in the last twenty-five years, so I had a good idea what to expect. I could tolerate the 4th storey climb to my room, carrying a heavy bag, but I would have used the elevator if they had one. The price has increased substantially, for this hotel was once quite economical. Now... More

Very good situated in the centre, the location is a great advantage, close to all bus lines and a 10 minute walk to Piazza Venetia where you can travell everywhere in Rome... The hotel: clean, well maintained, staff was ok, breakfast was ok, don't expect luxury but all is very well!

-Staff all very polite and helpful -Rooms are very basic but clean -AC didn't work well so we just opened the windows. Good for May but height of summer may be a problem. -Bathroom periodically had faint foul odor may be more to do with the older plumbing. Doubt lack of cleanliness. -No elevator not a big deal for us... 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.
