This is a boutique hotel in the heart of Rome. It is perfectly located and most of the attractions are within walking distance. The rooms are clean, albeit very small (think New York City small), but that's the price you pay for being at the city center. This is probably a good hotel for a couple staying in Rome for... More

One of my favorite neighborhoods, the Via del Orso location is perfect for getting to all parts of Rome. Comfy hotel, with modern finishes, and a great little breakfast included. Staff at the front desk are very accommodating and can help with whatever you need. Roof deck was closed in December, but it looked like a great place to enjoy... More

I was booked here by my local business partner for work meetings. What a charming surprise! Super modern clean and comfortable room, with a designer's touch. Such a contrast to typical business hotels. Lady at reception was a bit disorganized during check in and check out when there was more than one person asking something of her. Manager rescued her...

My friend and I stayed here on a JetSetter promotion. The hotel staff really went the extra mile here to help us in terms of recommendations and directions. One of them called our next hotel in Naples to arrange an airport pickup for us. The beds were quite comfy and the hotel had a nice modern ambience. While the neighborhood... More

We spent 10 very comfortable nights here. The location can't be beat. We loved the proximity to Piazza Navona, the Pantheon and Trevi Fountain. And, the major bus stop of Largo Argentina is just 5 minutes away. Staff are very personable and are fairly comfortable speaking and understanding English. They were always able to assist us: making restaurant reservations, calling... More

Going to Italy in August is probably not the best idea. In fact, it's probably the worst. Italy doesn't really operate in August. Everyone goes away and leaves you to it. Which is fine, because excluding a minor incident with a schizophrenic Segway at Villa Borghese, nothing bad happened and we didn't require any non-existant emergency treatment in a hospital...

This hotel is in a great location for exploring. Easy to find from Spanish steps. Doesn't have any sign except for on door so look carefully. The staff was helpful and rooms very clean. A little small but you are not often in it. Breakfast was lovely on roof terrace. Would definitely recommend. There are some negative comments on this... More

We stayed at the Relais Orso for 3 nights Sept 2014. The hotel is small, very charming and well located for exploring central Rome. The rooms are small but comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay aside from 2 'water related' issues. On the night we arrived we discovered the bath plug was inoperable and the tub would not drain.... More

I took my boyfriend for his birthday to Relais Orso and as we paid a high price I expected it to be high quality. Unfortunately the negatives out weighed the positives and have left us with a poor view of this hotel. When we went in June the roof bar was also closed and a lot of the areas are... 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.
