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

We wanted an inexpensive, characterful hotel in the heart of Rome's labyrinth of tiny streets, and this fitted the bill perfectly. Our top-floor (4th floor) room had romantic views over the rooftops, as far as the Vittorio Emanuele monument. Lean out of your window (with care!) and enjoy the Roman evening as the lights opposite and below start to come... More

Positives The room we stayed in was unremarkable but comfortable, with a small television and an en suite shower room with toilet, sink and bidet.

Arenula is a pleasant little hotel, in a very good area. Just 5 mins walk to the Pantheon/Piazza Navona area, and 5 mins in the other direction to the lively Trastevere area. Rooms were clean (and cleaned daily), and well-appointed enough for a short break. There's no lift, which I believe is a problem for some travellers - but we... 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.
