Situated a (Roman) stone’s throw from Piazza Navona and Pantheon, the two-star Hotel Navona offers 51 well-furnished rooms in a former 15th-century palazzo.
Pros: Incredibly central location. Historic building. Friendly service.
Cons: No elevator.
The Hotel Navona is a does not have a lot of frills, but it presents a good value given its location, especially during low season.
The Navona’s 51 rooms vary in size: Economy rooms are quite small, while most others are of typical European hotel dimensions. All are bright, yet cozy, with light-colored walls and earth-toned bed covers. We liked the leather-backed beds and LED lighting. Some rooms even have an antique piece or two.
All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, a safe and flat-screen television. They face both the street and courtyard, but as the hotel is situated on a side street with very little traffic, most rooms will generally be quiet.
All bathrooms are private and, with the exception of the suite, only equipped with showers. Similar to the rooms, the bathrooms vary in size. They have a minimalistic design, and are equipped with basic amenities such as a hair dryer and toiletries.
Although many of the rooms at the Hotel Navona have been renovated, the hotel tries to stay true to its historic origins. It was, after all, a palazzo built upon Roman foundations—behold the wood-beamed ceilings, occasional frescoes and original brick walls!
The Navona is a maze of different wings, hallways, common areas and lovely corners adorned with plants. It does not have an elevator, although the stairs are not too steep and 24-hour porter service is also available to help out with bags.
A breakfast buffet is available for an additional €10. Note that the breakfast room accommodates about 10-12 tables, and could be crowded in peak season. Wi-Fi is free throughout.
The Hotel Navona’s location is incredibly central, within walking distance to most of the city’s main attractions and shopping streets, as well as some fabulous places to eat. It’s also well-connected to bus stops along Corso del Rinascimento and Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, as well as the No. 8 tram that takes you to Trastevere.
Need a pick-me-up? The hotel is just a few steps away from the famous Sant’Eustachio caffe, home to some seriously great coffee.
The bustling Campo de’Fiori is a short-walk away—be sure to try the pizza bianca (flat bread) from the Forno Campo dei Fiori. Want more pizza? Head to Antico Forno Roscioli on Via dei Chiavari for “pizza al taglio” (pizza by the slice).
There are also several gelato shops within walking distance: V-ice on Corso V. Emanuele, Gelateria Corona at Largo Argentina and Gelateria del Teatro on Via dei Coronari. (More gelato picks in Rome.)
From Termini Station: Take bus No. 64 to Corso Vittorio Emanuele/S. A. della Valle or No. 70 to Rinascimento. Both stops are about a five- to 10-minute walk to the hotel.
From Leonardo Da Vinci Airport / Fiumicino: Take the Leonardo Express to Termini Station and from there take the bus as mentioned above. Alternatively, take the urban train (which costs less but stops more) to the Trastevere Station and from there, take the tram No.8 to Via Arenulfa, about a five-minute walk to the hotel.
From Ciampino: Take either the "Cotral" Bus or the bus shuttle "Terravision" to Termini Station, and then take the bus as mentioned above.
