Spotlessly, Clean, Friendly, two Metro stops from Termini
Posted Jul 27, 2006
The Hotel Novecento (the awning says '900 because the name means "nine hundred") is on a small side street near a Rome Metro Station. Nothing famous is nearby but it is clean, very inexpensive during parts of the year. If there is one disadvange, it may be that the room I had was small, the size of the double bed plus about 3 feet around it. But if you are a single traveller, it is good, especially since it is a quiet neighborhood, southeast of the more famous parts of town. A tram line is 2 blocks away, the Metro is 2 blocks awway, and the "Airport train" end of the main Railroad station (i.e., the back part of the station) is pretty close to this hotel. There are nearby restaurants, and a tram (#3) goes directly to the Coliseum. If you like being 10 minutes from the crowds rather than in the thick of things and want very clean and reasonable, near a pleasant park, this is a great location.
