Planning a trip to Italy? Unless you're lucky enough to have family, you'll have to find accomodations. This series of articles focuses on Rome budget hotels but often includes Rome bed and breakfast accomodations. On the way we describe multiple tourist attractions in the neighborhood. Each article includes beautiful photos of both a tourist attraction and the reviewed budget hotels or bed and breakfast accomodation. Each hotel mentioned has a live link (we test them just prior to posting) to its English-language website. Keep coming back, we are adding new destinations all the time. Let's find a Prati, Rome budget hotel.
The Prati district is situated in west central Rome. There you will find some of the city’s major shopping streets. This district itself is dominated by the verdant Monte Mario hill. While Monte Mario is the highest hill in Rome it’s not one of the famous seven hills because it lies outside the boundaries of the ancient city. The view is great from the Belevedere Zodiaco. Local sights include the Astronomical Observatory and the Museo Astronomico Copernicano. Even if you don’t remember the 1960 Olympics stop by the Olympic Stadium which is part of the Foro Italico, the sports center. You might want to visit the Fontana dei Quiriti without the kids. The district also hosts the Sede della RAI radio and TV center. For your convenience we have listed neighborhood hotels in approximate order of cost, starting with the least expensive. We have personally verified all website addresses making sure that they include English-language pages.
Hotel San Pietrino.
The Hotel San Pietrino is located on the third floor of a Nineteenth Century palazzo. Its rooms are well equipped for the price but breakfast is not included. And there is no bar in the hotel. Both of these shortcomings are easily resolved with a short walk in the neighborhood. There are 12 rooms with 1 to 4 beds. The Hotel San Pietrino website is www.sanpietrino.it.
New Holiday House Bed and Breakfast.

Levi Reiss has authored or co-authored ten books on computers and the Internet, but to be honest, he would rather just drink fine Italian or other wine, accompanied by the right foods. He teaches classes in computers at an Ontario French-language community college. Visit his website www.travelitalytravel.com devoted to Italian travel with an accent on fine Italian wine and food. Visit his central wine website www.theworldwidewine.com with weekly reviews of $10 wine and columns devoted to various aspects of wine including wine and food, humor, trivia, organic and kosher wine and lots more.
