Albergo Abruzzi-Moderately Priced Hotel in Rome
Concerned more about the location of your hotel than over-the-top luxury? Don't mind walking up a few flights of stairs (with your bags)? Then you should be aware of the many mid-range hotels that Rome has to offer within the Centro Storico (historic center). A perennial favorite is the Albergo Abruzzi, perfectly situated on the Piazza della Rotonda opposite the Pantheon. While the noise from the piazza at night is considerable, the view is incomparable and the location can't be beat. The rooms are simple, clean, and recently renovated. A double room starts at 195 Euros, which is certainly a deal considering you get a private bathroom (the hotel used to have only shared bathrooms), continental breakfast, and the most fascinating part of Rome at your doorstep. Check out the special discounted rates in February. With your discounted airfare, you'll have enough left over for a shopping spree on the Via Condotti!
