Close to public transportation in the residential Parioli district
The Polo Hotel is located in the quiet, residential Parioli district. It's far from Rome's main attractions, but close to a bus stop. Be prepared to take plenty of taxis or stay in the area: Rome's public transportation system is notoriously inadequate.
Rome is known as the "Eternal City" and is full of ancient ruins, museums, cafes, shopping, and famous monuments. Some of the most popular attractions include St. Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Museum, the Pantheon, the Roman Forum, and the Colosseum. Some of the best designer shopping can be found on Via Condotti. Rome is also a wonderful city for enjoying people watching in Piazza Navona or Campo dei Fiori.
The Polo Hotel is located in the quiet, residential Parioli district of Rome. This mid-range option is near public transportation, but not within walking distance of popular sights. The lobby has an upscale, classic look with vases full of white tulips, but rooms are on the basic side. The retro decor includes muted paisley wallpaper and maple-colored wood finishes. The result feels outdated, but rooms are clean, fairly spacious, and include flat-screen TVs and stocked minibars. Free breakfast is offered in the American Bar Restaurant, and the lobby bar offers a cozy space to relax with a drink. This no-frills property is a decent pick for travelers on a budget.
