The Hotel Panda is a great little budget find in an area most often associated with designer boutiques and the high rates to match. Basic, clean and welcoming, the two-star hotel also boasts a convenient position just a two-minute walk from the Spanish Steps.
Pros: Location, location, location. Friendly staff. Great rates for the area.
Cons: Some rooms pick up street noise. One flight of stairs (then elevator).
The 28 guest rooms at the Hotel Panda are on the small side and won’t win any awards for designer flair, but they’re comfortable and clean. Air conditioning is available in the summer months, and all rooms have a TV and phone. Rooms facing the street can get some noise, especially during the evening when the restaurants below are full. Some rooms can be rather dark.
Most of the Hotel Panda’s rooms have private bathrooms, but a few of the cheapest share facilities. Toiletries and hair dryers are available.
The Panda has traditional terracotta floors, and the Roman statuettes dotting the corridors lend an elegant touch.
Wi-Fi is free throughout. Breakfast is not included but the Hotel Panda offers vouchers for a €5 Italian breakfast (hot drink, juice and croissant) at the D’Angelo pastry shop across the street (ask at reception). There is also a communal fridge. Note that the hotel has an elevator, but you have to climb a set of steps before reaching it.

About the Hotel Panda 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.
