Travel by:Various through early January 2008 The Deal
Want to visit Rome in the next couple of weeks? We found a threesome of deals not to skip! In fact, the cost of a Roman sojourn is now so sensationally low that you can afford to stay at a four-star hotel in the heart of Rome for only $220/night! La dolce vita in the Eternal City starts from only $114/night at an upscale three-star a stone’s throw from the Vatican.
Stay at Atlante Star Hotel for $220 a night
Imagine yourself gazing over the ancient Roman rooftops while sipping a cappuccino at the leafy rooftop bar and restaurant of four-star Hotel Atlante Star, then retrieving to your elegant guestroom that Fodor’s describes as “attractively decorated with striped silks and prints for an old-world atmosphere”. Then stroll to the nearby Spanish Steps and round it up back at the hotel by sampling Mediterranean cuisine at Les Etoiles restaurant. Orbitz has marked-down rates here of just $220/night!
Quality Hotel Nova Domus for $114 a night
A couple of notches above other hotels in its price range, this upscale three-star property sits just steps away from the Vatican museums. Its traditional-style rooms are decked out in a palette of creams, terracotta and gold; comfortable furniture; and a broad range of in-room trimmings. The star attraction is the terrace restaurant, with outstanding city views and excellent Italian fare. A night spent here typically costs upward of $300 but you’ll pay only $114 if you book through Expedia.
Overnight at Parco Tirreno for $114 a night
Although not smack in the middle of Rome’s city center, this modern three-star is a short metro ride away from the Vatican and surrounded by scenic lush parkland. Featuring a restaurant, an indoor swimming pool and a fitness center on the premises, this hotel comes with a string of up-to-date rooms sporting private balconies. If you take into account that regular room costs go north of $150/night, this Orbitz deal — for just $114 — saves you quite a chunk of change.
