This is a small hotel in a nice part of town. We had a deluxe room which was about 300 sq ft (29 meters) and worth the extra expense. Very comfortable true king size bed. The lobby is small (no common area to sit) but the desk staff is wonderful, helpful, and all spoke English. The hotel has an elevator... More

We booked at Babuino 181, and were positively surprised by the high quality and space of the rooms, and great location to many Rome attractions. The adjacent streets to Via Babuino are full of great restaurants and coffee places. The hotel provided a guide book made by the owner suggesting few local coffee places, resturant and shops; we tried few... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighbourhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (21:00), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
