We are looking at staying at the Hotel Lord Byron in Parioli for four nights in August. This would be our first visit to Rome, and I was wondering whether the area is too far from the city's key attractions. I picked it partially because the area is supposed to be quieter and less "touristy", but I don't really know whether it is worth it. Is Parioli still considered "central", and if not, should I be looking closer to the Via Veneto? Any thoughts on the Hotel Lord Byron itself?
Any insights or suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.
