Rome is the capital city of Italy and one of the greatest cities in the whole Europe. It is a very big and crowded metropolis that can offer something for every tourist. There are few places on Earth where you can walk in the footsteps of history; St. Peter Square and Colosseum are just some of the places that bear a long and remarkable past and which will deeply impress you. Rome is also the place where the ancient Romans originated and has inspired with its history, natural beauty, architecture, lifestyle and art poets, sculptors and musicians for centuries. Here Michelangelo painted the Sistine Ceiling, Bernini sculpted baroque nymphs and naiads that still dance in marble fountains, and Fellini filmed La Dolce Vita. The best way to see the city is to walk, because Rome is first a big and interesting open air museum. Also on the street you will discover the way Italians live their lives, what are their joys and what makes Rome so special. This can be the warm aroma of a bakery, the handmade leather of a local craftsman, the tucked-away piazza that seems stuck in the 16th century, with grandma hanging the clothes out the window and six-year-olds chasing each other across the cobblestones.
Rome is visited annually by a great number of tourists, but this shouldn’t worry you because there are enough Rome hotels to accommodate you.
If you want to have easy access to the most popular tourist attractions you must book a hotel in the center of Rome. Hotel Solis is located on the Via Cavour road which is less than half a kilometer from the Colosseum. This small size hotel is built in a 3-story building and it has a small reception area and a restaurant. The overall design and selection of colors remind of European culture. There is a small reception desk at the entrance of the hotel, a bar in the corner and a restaurant with Italian café styled chairs and table, and there is a small lobby with access to free Wi-Fi. You can choose between a standard and superior guestroom in which you will find all facilities and amenities for a memorable stay. The window offers views over the street.

Another similar Rome hotel is the Richmond Rome located on the same street with a similar architecture but with the addition of terrace dining facilities.

If you want to enjoy the beautiful architecture of St. Peter’s Basilica and Square right from your hotel room, you must look for a Rome hotel located near the Vatican City. A good one is the Relais Vatican View Hotel located just outside the East wall of the Vatican City, on the Via del Mascherino 34 street. It is a 4-story building with plain exterior design; Saint Peter's Square is located less than 200-meters away from the hotel.

But if are on a budget we recommend you the Trianon Borgo Pio which also has two branches in South America. It is a 5-story building and its reception is very modern, so are its guestrooms with colorful walls and marbled floor. If you will choose a large guestroom such as the apartment you will get a bedroom and separate fully furnished dining and sitting area. The largest guestroom at the hotel can accommodate up to 7-8 persons. Also there is a small fitness room to help you to stay fit during your Rome vacation. This and many other facilities make it some of the most affordable Rome hotels.
