FourtySeven Hotel

Address Via Petroselli 47, 00186, Rome Map, Tel 39.06.6787816 Call, Website

This modern hotel prides itself in being family friendly. Children are given a special greeting, and there is a special children's room service menu (although, frankly, we find Italian menus to be pretty child friendly as is). Rooms are clean, quiet, and well appointed, and the breakfasts draw rave reviews from travelers. more

Grand Hotel De La Minerve

Address Piazza della Minerva 69, Rome Map, Tel 39 06 695201 Call, Website

The Grand Hotel de la Minerve is the only hotel of its caliber and size in the old city. Perfectly located in the Piazza della Minerva, you'll be in the center of the most charming part of Rome. The hotel itself was recently (and expensively) renovated, with great results! Rooms are very large by Roman standards, easily accommodating family travel, and service is exceptional. Wi-Fi and DSL available (extra charge). Junior suites have a separate living room. more

Hotel Ponte Sisto

Address Via dei Pettinari 64 Map, Tel +39 06686310 Call, Website

Walking distance from many of Rome’s most popular tourist sights, the Hotel Ponte Sisto is an independent hotel with friendly, personalized service. The 103 rooms and suites are well-appointed and comfortable; some units have a private terrace. Family Suites are ideal for 4-5 people and reasonably priced compared to other similar options in Rome. Our favorite feature is a large internal courtyard – the perfect place to relax before and after exploring the area. This hotel is a an excellent choice for families prioritizing value and location over an extensive list of onsite amenities. more

Internazionale Domus

Many hotels boast about having a Spanish Steps address but Internazionale Domus is one of the few properties that is literally on the Piazza di Spagna. This cherished, atmospheric location combined with a variety of family-oriented guest room configurations make this property an exceptional resource for families. All rooms have kitchenette or kitchen facilities. The décor is simple and guest units are spotless – there is nothing for kids to get into here. This property is an ideal choice for families seeking value-oriented accommodations in one of the best home-base locations in Rome. more

Raphael Hotel

Address Largo Febo, 2, 00186 ROMA Map, Tel 39 06 682831 Call, Website

This elegant, secluded little hotel is hidden behind the Piazza Navona -- right in the center of the action for restaurants, old city sightseeing, and shopping in artisan and food shops. The lobby is decorated with art and antiques and the rooms are each uniquely and comfortably decorated. Richard Meier recently redesigned the third floor. You won't get the feeling that comes with staying in a large corporate hotel. There is a two level terrace where you can arrange to have meals while enjoying the views. more

Hotel Lancelot

Address 47 Via Capo D'Africa Map, Tel +39 06 7045 0615 Call, Website

This is a lovely hotel in a great location near the Coliseum. What makes this a great place for families is the staff, who were kind, attentive, and generous (even at 4 a.m.). They will put a portable crib in your room and will go out of their way to offer tips for getting around the city.Everyone who works there speaks excellent English and the breakfast buffet is wonderful with homemade cereals, fruit, meats, cheese, and pastries (they also serve dinner).
