Today’s Tip: Hotel Camp Di Fiori
Campo Di Fiori, which translates from Italian to field of flowers, was said to have been a meadow in the middle ages. Now, the square, lined with restaurants, bars, bakeries and pasta shops, holds a bustling market during the day and becomes a nightlife hot spot as the sun goes down.
Ideally located right off of the lively square, the hotel that bears it’s name is surrounded by great food and shopping and is within walking distance of a number of tourist sites like The Colosseum.
The hotel is small, but expertly decorated and very comfortable with impeccable service, wifi and a nice breakfast included. The rooms are cozy but not too small with sumptuous, old-world decor. There is a beautiful rooftop deck open to guests as well, with sweeping views of the city and the busy square below.
I stayed in this lovely little boutique hotel in Rome a few years ago, and since then the place has been given a total makeover. It looks to have gone up-market, and the prices have quite a range from around €130 up to €600 ($165 – $750) per night depending on the season. So it’s definitely worth checking in advance to see if you can get a good rate.
The hotel also owns some lovely apartments on the other side of the square and sometimes puts guests up in them if the hotel is booked, so worth asking about those as well.
