Maybe you are thinking about visiting romantic Rome in Italy this year. If so, it would come as no surprise. Italy’s Eternal city is well worth visiting as there is plenty to see too. Then there’s all that great Italian food, wine, and even beer, to sample.

If you are indeed thinking seeing Rome, you’ll need somewhere to stay. Indeed, you may well be looking for a good hotel in Rome. If so, here are ten of the most highly rated Rome hotels on TripAdvisor plus comments from former guests.

Let me add my own tip here: find a hotel in Rome with a rooftop bar. They are fabulous places to unwind after a hard day’s sightseeing. Hotel number 5 below has an awesome rooftop bar, by the way.
