Tucked on a quiet lane in the heart of Rome's action, the Hotel Boccaccio is nothing fancy. Rather, this affordable hotel is the sort of place that makes you feel right at home.
Pros: Enviable location. Homey atmosphere. Excellent value.
Cons: Can pick up street noise. No air conditioning.
The one-star Hotel Boccaccio is situated on a small cobblestoned street near the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, and many restaurants and cafés. The quiet hotel has been owned by the same family since 1937 and is currently run by the friendly Patrizia.
The Boccaccio is crammed with paintings, rugs, antiques and plants, all which lend it a homey feel. The eight guest rooms are done up in bright colors, and the decorator certainly wasn’t afraid of mixing patterns when choosing wallpaper and bedspreads. Note that the rooms do not have a TV, telephone or air conditioning, but they are equipped with a fan and mini-fridge.
The bathrooms, private or shared, are modern and clean, and a hair dryer and toiletries are available in all guest rooms.
The Hotel Boccaccio's small, plant-festooned communal balcony is a great place to enjoy some sunshine (smoking is permitted). The hotel also has a cozy seating area with a TV.
Green-minded travelers will appreciate that the Hotel Boccaccio is a member of the Eco WorldHotel Group and has won the group’s “Environment Quality EcoWorldHotel” prize for its use of eco-friendly cleaning products.
The Boccaccio does not offer breakfast, but there are plenty of cafés nearby. Wi-Fi is free throughout.

Located just south of the Villa Borghese, the Piazza di Spagna is home to the famous Spanish Steps, where hundreds gather to relax in the afternoon sun before strolling along the boutique- and café-lined Via dei Condotti. The area is home to the Trevi Fountain, the lovely Villa Borghese Park, and loads of stylish (and pricey) shops. Hotels in this area tend to be quite expensive.
