Here are some places that have been recommended to us by past students or forwarded on through friends. We hope that you find the information useful, but please remember that we have not had personal experience with these places, and therefore are not able to guarantee complete satisfaction.
If you want to be within a few minutes walk of the school, look for accommodation near Piazza di Spagna (the Spanish Steps), the Pantheon or Piazza Navona. Found somewhere in another area? Not sure about getting to the school? Feel free to contact us, and we’ll be happy to advise you on getting here from your chosen location.
One of the oldest hotels in the historic centre, and conveniently close to the school. Excellent value its location and the prices range from €55-€80 per night for a single room, to €68-€108 per night for a double. It is located on a busy shopping street which also has a lot of cafes and great restaurants.
Via della Croce, 35

This is a sister hotel to Hotel Panda, and in my opinion is situated in an even better location. The prices are cheaper than Hotel Panda and I’m guessing it is because it is slightly off the beaten track (closer to Piazza Del Popolo rather than the Spanish Steps) …. but what is a ten minute walk when you are in Rome!
Via Della Penna, 57

BED & BREAKFASTS
The website for the Bed and Breakfast Association of Rome (www.b-b.rm.it) has a wonderful selection of places to stay. Look for places near the Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, Piazza Parlamento, Pantheon, Piazza del Popolo or Via del Corso to be within easy walking distance of the school.
Situated on the other side of Via del Corso, very close to Piazza di Spagna. Prices start from €120/€140 euros per night for a double room, depending on the season.
Via del Babuino, 127
APARTMENTS TO RENT
A Cute apartment on Via Dell’ Orso
A former student found this place on the site www.homeaway.com –
I saw it and whilst being very “compact” shall we say, it is perfect for one person who wishes to stay in Rome for an extended period of time or budget travellers that are all good friends and willing to sleep on pull-out couches. All up it sleeps 4 people, albeit in close quarters. The owners also have another larger apartment upstairs that sleeps 6 people. The only complaint I heard was a barking dog that lives on the top floor, but you really can’t beat the location.
