Where to stay in Rome

Rome has endless options for accommodations between hotels and Airbnbs. We generally recommend staying in the outlined area on the map above, which roughly aligns with the Aurelian Walls that surround the main city center. The red heart emoji is our wedding venue – Villa Aurelia – and the blue heart emoji is where the welcome party will be held on Friday night – Terrazza Caffarelli. We recommend staying in the center near the welcome party (pink and purple areas on the map), as you can walk virtually anywhere from that area and there are tons of restaurants, bars and shops.

The yellow area on the left bank of the river is the Trastevere neighborhood, which has more of a local feel (ie less touristy) with great restaurants and bars. Trastevere is conveniently located for the wedding venue and is still walking distance to much of the city center, just slightly removed from the main sights.

Via Veneto is located just below Villa Borghese on the top right section of the map (light blue). Many of the big hotel chains are located along this road. Via Veneto is a slightly further walk to the main sights, but it is a still a nice area and provides easy access to the Metro.

Rome is extremely busy this time of year, so we recommend booking sooner rather than later to get the best deals.


We recommend looking into Airbnbs, as hotels are quite expensive for the dates of the wedding weekend and there seem to be more affordable options on Airbnb. Particularly if you’re looking to stay as a group, Airbnbs or other short term rentals are a great option. If you go this route, make sure there is air conditioning. You may also want to confirm if there’s an elevator/lift depending on what floor the Airbnb is on.


See below for a few hotels we recommend.

Donna Camilla Savelli

This is a beautiful hotel in an old converted monastery, just a 10-minute walk from the wedding venue (Villa Aurelia). It is on the outskirts of the Trastevere neighborhood, tucked away on a quiet street, so this is a great spot if you prefer to be slightly removed from the busyness of the main tourist areas. Trastevere, just a few minutes walk from the hotel, is a very lively neighborhood, where many locals love to go out for dinner and drinks.

Starting at 385 euros per night.

Palazzo Velabro

Palazzo Velabro is a new hotel that opened in 2023 and is a member of Design Hotels (select benefits for Marriott Bonvoy members). It is very central to all the historic sites, but in a quieter part of town, and it is a 10-minute walk to the welcome party venue (Terrazza Caffarelli). The rooms are nice and spacious and most have a kitchenette.

Starting at 400 euros per night.

Fortyseven Boutique Hotel

Just around the corner from Palazzo Velabro, Fortyseven Hotel is also conveniently located for many of the historic sites and is just a block from the river. The hotel features a lovely rooftop restaurant/bar and has modern rooms. It is also a 10-minute walk from the Welcome Party venue.

Starting at 500 euros per night.

Pantheon Iconic Rome Hotel

The Pantheon Iconic Rome Hotel is a member of Autograph Collection (Marriott Bonvoy) and is just steps away from the Pantheon and Piazza Navona. The neighborhood is filled with shops, restaurants and bars and is great for wandering around the narrow streets. The hotel also is home to a Michelin-star restaurant and an amazing rooftop bar with views of the Pantheon, which we recommend whether you are staying there or not.

Starting at 600 euros per night.

Hotel Locarno

Hotel Locarno is a lovely historic boutique five-star hotel near Piazza Del Popolo. It's conveniently located near Villa Borghese and a short walk to the Spanish Steps and many of the nice shops in Rome.

The hotel has set aside a handful of rooms for our guests, starting at 710 euros per night. If you are interested in reserving one of these rooms, please contact Alessandra Moroni ( and note Jenna and Adrien in the email.

Soho House Rome

We will be staying at Soho House for the weekend and would love for any guests to join us there. However, it is not the best location-wise, so we do not recommend this if you've never been to Rome before and/or plan to spend the weekend exploring all that the city has to offer.

If you have been to Rome before though and prefer to relax and avoid the tourists during the weekend, Soho House does have some great amenities, including a gym, spa and rooftop pool. It is a 10-15 minute taxi ride to most of the main sights.

Anyone can book a stay at Soho House Rome, but members and friends get better rates on rooms. The Soho House friends membership costs $130, so depending on how many nights you stay, it may be worth getting the friend membership to get the discounted room rate.
