Where to Stay? Family-friendly Rome Hotels Near the Spanish Steps
If you’re planning a trip to the Eternal City with your children, you’ll want to find a hotel that is both comfortable and convenient, and most importantly, can accommodate a family with 4-5 guests in one room or suite. One of the best places when considering where to stay in Rome with kids is near the Spanish Steps. This iconic landmark is the focus of a central, upscale neighborhood in Rome with memory-making photo opportunities on the famous steps, and legendary shopping and dining. Here are our top three recommendations for three family-friendly Rome hotels near the Spanish Steps that are perfect for your Italy family vacation.
The first hotel on our list is the Residenza Frattina. This charming hotel is located in the heart of Rome, just a stone’s throw from the Spanish Steps amid the chic shopping streets emanating out around its location on Via Frattina. The hotel is housed in a restored 18th-century palace and features beautiful frescoes and original artwork. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and some of them have views of the city. We especially love the charming cozy breakfast room.
The Residenza Frattina offers a variety of family-friendly amenities, such as cribs and extra beds for children. Family rooms available include triple or quad rooms. The hotel’s staff is also very accommodating and can assist with recommendations for family-friendly Rome restaurants in the area.
Next, we have Maison Evelina. This beautiful hotel is located near the Spanish Steps on via Margutta, one of our favorite streets in Rome. The hotel is housed in a charming 19th-century building and features a mix of modern and antique decor. The area is centrally located for exploring Rome, but among quiet streets with a local artsy atmosphere. Scenes from the Audrey Hepburn film Roman Holiday were filmed here!
The rooms at the Maison Evelina are spacious and comfortable. The hotel also offers a variety of rooms for families, including triple, quad, and an apartment with a kitchen and living room that sleeps 6. They will also provide cribs and extra beds for children.
Last but not least, we love Palazzo Ripetta. This elegant hotel is located on Via di Ripetta, near the Spanish Steps and the famous Piazza del Popolo. The hotel is situated in a restored 18th-century palace and features beautiful frescoes and original artwork.
The rooms at the Palazzo Ripetta are elegant and recently renovated. They have a wide variety of family-friendly rooms available ranging from triple rooms to an apartment with a full kitchen and dining room that sleeps eight people. The hotel also provides cribs and extra beds for children. There is a nice restaurant at the hotel and a lovely bar with garden courtyard. Similar to the above choices, Via di Ripetta is a rather quiet street away from noisy traffic, but central for getting everywhere you need to go in Rome.
While you are staying in the Spanish Steps area with your family, check out the Cafe Canova Tadolini, an enchanting cafe set amid the 19th-century sculptures left behind in the building that was once the Canova-Tadolini Atelier. The perfect place for inspiring little imaginations and appetites!
