Piazza Navona, Rome, Lazio

Oyster Review Summary

Pros

Cons

Bottom Line

The St. George is a luxury boutique hotel in a fabulous location: on a cobblestone street in Old Rome, within walking distance of restaurants, shops, and some of Rome's most popular sights. The hotel is certainly luxurious -- sophisticated rooms have warm beige decor and modern amenities, and the small spa is sleek, with a tranquil Turkish bath. But it doesn't quite achieve its advertised 5-star status: The restaurants are often empty and the fitness center is tiny. Nonetheless, the service and location help to make up for these drawbacks.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

A block from the Tiber River, within walking distance of the Piazza Navona, Campo dei Fiori, and numerous restaurants and bars

St. George is in the neighborhood surrounding the Campo dei Fiori, one of the best places to stay in Rome; it's a central spot, it's pedestrian-friendly, it's near the Pantheon, and there are a ton of restaurants. An abundance of narrow, winding, cobblestone streets can be found in this area, as can many excellent restaurants and bars. But there aren't a ton of hotels (although there certainly are some) so they book up quickly.

Campo dei Fiori is a small charming square that hosts a popular farmers market in the mornings, and turns into a rowdy party scene at night (it's home to several touristy bars). To the north, Piazza Navona, a big, lovely square circled by restaurants, featuring the elaborate Fountain of the Four Rivers with Egyptian obelisk. The St. George is less than a 10-minute walk from both squares, as well as several historic churches. The Pantheon is less than a 15-minute walk from the hotel, and the Vatican City is also just over the river. However, Piazza Navona does not have many metro stations and the closest is about 15 minute away from St. George.
