The wide, busy streets around Rome’s central train station feel much more urban than the rest of the city center. Traffic is heavier, 19th-century buildings are taller, and the overall feeling is gray and commercial—not the Rome of travel brochure fantasies. But the hotel density here is the highest in the city, and you’re assured of finding a room in a pinch. And parts of this area, such as Monti and San Lorenzo, have become popular with the hipster crowd thanks to abundant eateries (both Italian and ethnic) and funky wine bars. Although most travelers choose the area because it’s cheap, there are a surprising number of high-end hotels here as well, and if you’re looking for a luxurious room, the price-quality ratio here is better than in swankier parts of town.
