Campo de Fiori or Trastavere

Any advice for apartments/hotels under 120 euros in these areas?
Which area would you recomend?
Thanks

I have a double room booked at Casa San Giuseppe for Sept for 3 nights. They gave me a discount because I told them we are meeting a RS group (we are).
Discounted rate is 140 E. Our tour group is staying there. Haven't seen the hotel in person, but I'm sure it will be fine.

Mimi which RS Tour are you taking?

One note about Casa san Guiseppe. I'd suggest taking your RS Italy guidebook along, so that you can refer to the map to find the Hotel. You could also photocopy the map if that would be preferable.

if you're taking a Taxi from Termini, the driver may have difficulty getting you right to the Hotel (unless he knows the area well). If you get to Piazza Trilussa, that's perfect as you'll have no problem getting to the Hotel from there.

The Hotel is more than "fine" - it's very nice (somewhat "upscale").

Happy travels!

Dimitry,

You might have a look at Casa san Guiseppe in the Trastevere area. I'm not sure if it will fit your price range, as I was using a single room (and would have to check my credit card statement to see what I paid).

Check their website for current rates.

Happy travels!

We are taking the "Best of South Italy" starting Sept 7 in Rome ending in Naples. The tour group is booked at Casa san Giuseppe so we are going in 3 nights early. I am going to take a look at taking the train to Termini (which is what we did before) then getting to the hotel by taxi or just taking a taxi to the hotel. With Rick's calculations, it may be almost the same to do that. I will also price a car service straight to the hotel. We don't mind doing the train and subway stuff if it will save money. Rome is not hard to get around and we do like exploring there. Ken, thanks for the help with the directions. have you taken this tour? Our only RS tour was Village Italy last April. Can you tell we like Italy? Been there 3 times in the last 5 years! Was hoping we could connect with someone also on this tour. Mimi

Mimi,

I took the Best of South Italy tour last Apr./May. It was wonderful! It seems to be a popular tour, as I've spoken with someone else that is taking that tour this year (although I don't believe it's in September).

Do you know yet who your Guide will be? Just thinking about it is bringing back some great memories!

I found that taking the Leonardo Express to Termini and then a Taxi to the Hotel was a very easy method. I wanted to stop at Termini and get a snack and a coffee first, and just enjoy being back there (as you can tell, I like Italy too!).

Happy travels!

If it's your first time in Rome, I'd recommend Campo dei Fiori. If it's your second time, then Trastevere. It's a little more off the beaten path and is like staying in a medieval village that happens to be just across the river from Rome.
