Therefore, picking a hotel in Rome really depends on your budget and how accessible you’d like the top sites to be.

Rome hotels for all types of holidays and breaks
Rome isn’t only a romantic destination. This city is also perfect for family holidays. Best to travel during the cooler months, as the heat and bustle of a major city can be a bit full-on if you’re leading kids around a major city. A good place to book a hotel might be close to the Roma Termini railway station, so you can get about easily, and to and from the airport without much hassle.
But the kids will love the history and the Roman reenactments, plus Italian food? Pizza and pasta? It’s a cuisine made for fussy eaters. The Italians are keen on family and you’ll feel welcome wherever you go.
