We often make the reservations here for our friends and receive the best accommodation at the best price for them. This is for you if you are happy with a clean, 3-star service hotel, basic furnishings, no fancy bar or room service. The rooms are larger than usual - definitely a 5-star location - off Via Veneto and Piazza Barberini. Best value for your money. Let us know if we can help you with a reservation here.
Exit the hotel - walk left to Piazza Barberini, major bus/metro stops.
Exit hotel - walk directly up the street to Via Veneto.
Description from their website:
The hotel has 14 rooms, including 1 Suite with a beautiful terrace and 1 Junior Suite.
All rooms have been newly designed, and are elegant, sober and refined. They are equipped with every comfort including: satellite TV, air conditioning and a safe.
Unique Qualities: Their deluxe room is spacious - lovely private terrace - jacuzzi hot tub - full bathroom - 5-star location - breakfast available but I would walk directly up the street to a small bar on Via Veneto or down the street to (left as you exit the hotel) to Piazza Barberini.
Less expensive than average for size of rooms and location.
Address: Via di San Basilio, 53
Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: Central - Piazza Barberini/Via Veneto

Casa di Santa Brigida
A hot tip for Rome travellers - even Rick Steves recommends. Not many people know, but there are quite a few convents in Rome that make accommodations available to tourists.
These accommodations are run like a business - not a "convent."
Moreover, the nuns really don't care if you are Catholic or not - the curfews at many are now Midnight. They are the most inexpensive, and pristine facilities you will find anywhere in Rome or close to the Vatican.
The Italian government has made it easier for convents and monasteries to house travelers. Low-cost mortgages and home-improvement loans are available to religious institutions that offer lodging, said Massimo Serafini. Serafini is director of Italy's Center for Religious and Cultural Tourism, an agency that helps convents and monasteries throughout Italy to get into the tourist business.

rooms have private baths. Curfew is at 11:00 PM. English and French are spoken.

Unique Qualities: These accommodations are not for the lovers of the night life as most have curfews ranging up to Midnight (1 listed here has no curfew) - they are perfectly suited for the tourist traveller, student, budget-minded folks - far exceed in value what is offered in hostels, B&B's, or inexpensive hotels.
