Best Places to Stay in Rome, Italy: Arco del Lauro B&B – Cozy B&B in the heart of Trastevere
This charming B&B is located in the quite part of Trastevere, far from the chaos of the bars and clubs, but close enough to cafes and restaurants to make it the perfect location. All four rooms are located on the ground floor of a 18th-century palazzo and are sleek, modern and clean. A common area has a wifi point. The hostess, Lorenza, is always happy to help with suggestions.
Breakfast is served in the form a voucher which you cash in at the lovely café around the corner. The perfect place to sip your cappuccino as your plan your day.
Best Places to Stay in Rome, Italy: Casa Howard – Boutique Design Hotel
This small boutique B&B is as heavy on style as service. Each room has a different theme which can play out in anything from plaid to zebra. You’re as likely to find antiques as satin covered modernity.
The hotel actually has two locations, both near the Spanish steps. Each take up floors of historic palaces, and each has five rooms. Some rooms are small, some are quite large. The feel is more akin to being in a private apartment than a hotel. Although most rooms have their own bath, not all do (so make sure which you are getting). But it’s not a youth hostel situation: you’ll get a kimono and slippers to make your way around. Breakfast is served in room, and there is always a maid on duty.
