Hotel has a good location, not far to walk to all the main sites like the Colosseum, Trevi fountain, Vatican. If you don't like walking there a scooter rental not far from the hotel. Staff was friendly and spoke decent English. Rooms were bigger than I expected in a big city and they were clean. Bathroom was big enough for... More

We were lucky to have a room on the first floor, 103, but even then had to climb a set of steps from the entrance up to reception and floor one. Be aware of this! Our room was small but fine for an overnight, and had a window opening onto the street. Even though we were only about 4 doors... More

Rude and inexperienced staff, totally unaccomodating in every respect. Dirty bathrooms which hardly work, safes in the room no better than paper weights, air conditioning which is just for show. Signed up for five nights, wanted to leave immediately, but was forced to stay for two. The best thing about this place was leaving for another.

Friendly people at reception (They carried our luggage four floors up! because their is no elevator) The breakfast room is not big enough for all the guest at ones, so the day befor you have to 'reserve" your table at a certain our. we were their august...

Stayed here for 5 days with my teenage son on our first visit to Rome. Excellent location and good facilities for the price. Breakfast wasn't the best, but it was adequate. No lift - fortunately, we were on the second floor, so not an issue.

Hotel Arenula is located in the right place for rome visits. It is within walking distance of all major attractions. Other than that, there is nothing to write home about. You can smell the city sewer from your room toilet, the wifi is terrible almost non existant, the rooms are very small. They have no lift and the stairs are... More

This hotel is located walking distance to some good piazze. But it lacks everything else. It does not have an elevator and each stair case has 30 steps. If you are on the 4 floor...you are pretty much screwed. The breakfast is minuscule and there is not enough room for the guests there. Also my door broke and had to... More

Good hotel near the centre of the ancient town. About 15 minute walk to the Colosseum and Pantheon. It is also near the river with some lovely eating areas nearby and stalls along the banks in the evening. The hotel was clean and staff friendly but it has lots of stairs and no lift. Breakfast is continental and you can... More

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

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.
