Planning your next family vacation in Rome? Offering world-known sights like Colosseum and Vatican, boasting a wide choice of museums and cultural centers, and arguably having the best pizza and ice cream in the world, the Eternal City is there to make adults and children happy. Having been on family holidays to Rome several times myself, I can’t stress choosing the right lodging enough. Thankfully, there are many accommodation choices that come with spacious suites and connecting rooms, a must for an easy and stress-free vacation. These are the best hotels in Rome for families.
Several things make U-Visionary one of the best hotels in Rome for families. The location is unbeatable, Trevi Fountain is just around the block, and you’re in the very heart of the city. That makes exploring hassle-free and saves you nerves on the commute. Then there’s an open suite unit that is ideal for up to four people. It comes with slick modern designs, high-end furniture, and smartphone controls. But wait until you see the panoramic terrace. Set on the 6th floor, it invites you to admire the spectacular vista of Rome from above.
Located a short walk away from the Roman Forum, Trevi Fountain, and Colosseum, HT6 would become the strategic base for easy Rome exploration. The family room is the one to choose for up to four people. It has two floors so every member of the family will have space. Your day will start with a rich buffet breakfast in the morning that includes homemade cakes and croissants that reviewers absolutely love.

Families can opt for a four-person room or choose the apartment-like suites for even more convenience. In each case, you can expect well-appointed historic interiors (the hotel is set in a former 17th-century monastery), modern amenities, and extra space. And Argentina Residenza is the ultimate accommodation for walking around Rome – all the top sights are very close by.
Terrace Pantheon Relais is an excellent hotel for families in Rome. Conveniently located in the heart of the old town, it’s minutes away from the grandiose Pantheon, elegant Piazza Navona, and wedding cake-like Monument to Victor Emmanuel II. You’ve got large suites with air conditioning, WiFi, and flat-screen TVs that combine contemporary and historic elements. High ceilings are another authentic bonus. But the coolest thing about this lodging is the fantastic rooftop terrace where you’re sure to spend many inspired moments.
