Situated a couple of gelato licks 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. Prices unpredictable and often not budget.
First of all, let’s talk about location. The Navona boasts one of the most central addresses of all of the hotels we recommend. It’s just one block east of Piazza Navona, two blocks west of the Pantheon, and a five-minute stroll north of the Campo de’ Fiori. Along with the nearby Hotel Mimosa, this is about as central as you’re going to find for an affordable hotel.
The Navona’s 51 rooms vary in size and price. Thus, if you’re going for a cheap “Economy” room, expect it to be small. Regular double rooms are of typical European hotel dimensions. All are bright, with light-colored walls, and beds with leather headboards and modern coverings. Some rooms are furnished with an antique piece or two. Rooms face either the street or courtyard, but as the hotel is situated on a mostly pedestrian side street, most rooms will generally be quiet. All are equipped with air conditioning, a safe and flat-screen television.
All bathrooms are private, most are equipped with showers, and (like the bedrooms), size varies quite a bit. They have a minimalistic design, and are equipped with basic amenities such as a hair dryer and toiletries.
Although most of the hotel's rooms have been renovated, they've tried to stay true to their historic origins. It was, after all, a palazzo built upon Roman foundations. Thus, behold the wood-beamed ceilings, occasional frescoes and original brick walls! Behold, as well, the stone staircase—there isn’t any elevator, the reception is located up a floor, and the rooms are up yet another floor.
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 Navona isn’t the most affordable hotel on our list, and rates are rather unpredictable, with doubles that range from as little as €89 to a whopping €250 in high season. We would think a rate at the lower end of that range would be a good deal, especially given the hotel’s location and comfortable, renovated rooms.

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.
