Often I'm asked where I would stay if I was a tourist in Rome, Sometime they ask me before they come and they're always satisfied of the hotel I suggested and other times they ask too late, when they are already here and they're not happy with their hotel because it's too far from the attractions of Rome or other venues, or they don't like their accommodations.

One thing that always happens is that at the end of the tour they ask me to suggest a restaurant for their dinner, surely that's because they enjoyed the food at the restaurant I took the to during the tour!

A lot of people travel by cruise ship and they would like to find someone like me that offers driving guide service for small groups in other ports of the Mediterranean Sea so they ask me to if I know someone. For what concerns Italy, I can arrange tours from the different Ports, Civitavecchia for Rome, Livorno or La Spezia for Florence, Naples or Salerno for the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii but I don't have a joint venture outside of Italy so I can just supply some contact information.

I have therefore decided to list on this page my favored hotels, restaurants, colleagues who operate outside of Italy and whatever else might be useful for tourists, even if they don't become my clients, without charging anybody any commission!

Here’s the list of the nice “boutique” hotels in the center of Rome I usually suggest, grouped by star-rating. The 4-star superior (****S) are the most expensive, a double room goes from 250/300 Euros and up. A double room in a regular 4-star (****) should be around 180/250 Euros and in a 3-star (***) should go for 100/150 Euros.
