Tucked into a quiet street very close to the Trevi Fountain, the eco-friendly Hotel Boccaccio is a quiet and affordable one-star hotel that feels like home.

The eight-room Hotel Boccaccio is situated in an apartment building on a narrow cobblestoned street near the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, and many restaurants and cafés. The peaceful little place has been owned by the same family since 1937 and is currently run by the friendly Patty.

As soon as we stepped into the Boccaccio’s creaky hallway, crammed with paintings, rugs, antiques and plants, we felt at home. The guest rooms lining the hall are done up in bold color combinations, but they have a quiet elegance about them, further enhanced by the fabulously high ceilings. Most have an antique furnishing or two; we saw lovely beds, desks and armoires. Paintings or Rome-themed film posters hang on the walls.

Note that these rooms are also quite simple, equipped only with a fan, mini-fridge and free Wi-Fi. They do not have a TV, telephone or air conditioning.

The bathrooms, private or shared, are modern and clean, and a hairdryer and toiletries are available in all guest rooms. Bathrobes are given to guests who share a bathroom.

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.

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.

Wi-Fi is free throughout. Note that the hotel does not have an elevator.

The Boccaccio is one of our favorite hotels in Rome, precisely because it has real warmth and a kind proprietor who is dedicated to caring for her guests. It's also quite often a great deal, with some of the lowest rates in the neighborhood. 

Note: This hotel was visited by a EuroCheapo editor and is recommended based on cleanliness, location, price and overall quality. EuroCheapo did not charge this hotel to be listed.

About the Hotel Boccaccio neighborhood

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.
