Accomodadtions in Rome

My wife and I are booked for a Rome vacation cruise in December.

We plan to fly into Rome three days early to enjoy the sites before our cruise sh ip eaves for return voyage. My question is: Where do we stay in Rome for those three days? Any reviews or recommendations and advise would be greatly appreciated. We certainly don't need five-star luxury accommodations, but nothing sub -standard either Private baths and of course clean are musts, but no budget-busters either. We are novice newly retired travelers, so we need as much help as we an get. Thanks in advance.

If you offer some information about your budget range, it will help people offer you useful suggestions.

The historic center of Rome is a good area to be located (Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Campo de'Fiori, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps areas); there is less pricey lodging in the areas around Termini station and the Vatican.

I suggest you get a good guidebook and a map prior to your trip so you can begin to figure what you want to see and where things are located.

We just returned and stayed by Piazza Navonna which is very centrally located. 10 minute walk to the Trevi Fountain and Pantheon is at the most a 5 minute walk. Lovely local restaurants on the side streets around the squares. Try Maccheroni if you go. It is In this area and where the locals eat. Look up hotels in this area on this website. I advise air conditioning as when we were there it was in the 90s. We bought a map there and occasionally got a little lost but nothing major. We walked everywhere without any problems day or night. I personally liked staying by Piazza Navonna instead of the Spanish Steps as it seemed more central to me. Angel Tours were delightful. Check out there website. Did tours of the Vatican and Colisseum with them.Also Eating Italy food tour was four hours and exceptional in the Testaccio neighborhood. Angel Tours also offers a night tour of the Vatican. We picked up an evening concert at some ruins and also a Dali exhibit that was a nice surpirse.

Just back from our first trip to Rome & we stayed at Hotel Regno on Via Del Corso. Despite being on a very busy road, we had no traffic noise day or night, our room was very spacious, had a small balcony & an air-con. We walked everywhere from here as it was very centrally located. Lots of shops and restaurants all around!
