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. Although not the cheapest option in the center, the Navona offers a solid value, especially as it’s within walking distance of many of Rome’s most famous sights.
Pros: Incredibly central location. Historic building. Renovated rooms.
Cons: Not super cheap. No elevator.
The Navona’s 51 rooms are of varying sizes and are all equipped with en-suite bathrooms. (A few rooms are small, but most are of typical European hotel dimensions.) The hotel has recently been renovating and upgrading the rooms, adding more antiques, along with leather-backed beds, LED lightings and flat-screen televisions.
Rooms are bright, yet cozy, with light-colored walls and earth-toned bed covers. The Hotel Navona’s rooms face both the street and courtyard, but as it is situated on a side street with very little traffic, most rooms will generally be quiet.
Wi-Fi is free in the rooms, and throughout the hotel.
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 recently 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 hotel does not have an elevator, and the reception is on the first floor, which could be a trick for some travelers, although the stairs are not too steep. A 24-hour porter service is also available to help out with bags.
The hotel is a maze of different wings, hallways, common areas, and lovely corners adorned with plants. The breakfast room accommodates about 10-12 tables, and could be crowded in peak season. Breakfast is not included in the rate, but the Hotel Navona offers a full buffet breakfast for €10.
The Hotel Navona’s location is incredibly central, and within walking distance to most of the city’s main attractions, shopping streets and 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, and don’t forget to get 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).
And how can you not have gelato when in Rome? There are several gelato shops within walking distance offering classic to the more creative flavors: 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: There are several bus options: No. 64 (getting off at C.so Vittorio Emanuele/S. A. della Valle) or 70 (getting off at Rinascimento) and from those stops it is about a 5 to 10-minute walk to the hotel. Alternatively, taking a taxi directly to the hotel will cost about €15.
From Leonardo Da Vinci Airport / Fiumicino:
• Take the Leonardo Express to Termini Station, and from there take the bus as mentioned above.
• Take the urban train (with more stops but costs less than the Leonardo Express) to the Trastevere Station and from there, take the tram No.8 to Via Arenula. From the stop, it’s about a 5-minute walk to the hotel.
• A taxi directly to the hotel at the fixed price of €48.
• Take the "Cotral" Bus to Metro A Stop "Anagnina" in the direction of "Battistini". Get off at Termini Station and take the bus from there as mentioned above.
• Take bus shuttle “Terravision” which goes directly to Termini then the buses mentioned above.
• A taxi directly to the hotel at the fixed price of €30.

Pantheon-Piazza Navona, Rome, Italy
About the Hotel Navona neighborhood
The Pantheon and Piazza Navona are located to the west of the train station and southwest of Piazza di Spagna. The area is perhaps the most visited in all of Rome. Everybody flocks to Piazza Navona for its three Bernini fountains and fancy bars and restaurants. This neighborhood features innumerable old churches and pockets of great budget value, both in terms of hotels and restaurants.
