How much do you have to spend? Dei Gladiatori is a hotel literally next door to the Colosseum. The Hotel Traiano is pretty central, and a bit cheaper, but both of these are 4 star hotels. There are much cheaper, but the location won't be quite as good. If you want a basic but pleasant B+B, Chez Liviana is reasonably central, and from 50 euros a night. I can probably find you more, but which sort of price range and standard were you looking for?

dont drive over there. the roundabouts will confuse the **** out of you.
theres quite alot of beggers in rome and so there is quite high numbers of pick pokets so watch for that.

the Pace Helvezia is a good hotel as is the Albergo Ottocento.
i would stay just out of the centre though so you can experience the public transport :p:
look at this site http://www.nycerome.com/

You may be surprised to learn also that Rome has no proper Metro system. This is because every time they try to build one, they uncover another two thousand year old priceless relic!

I noticed you're only 15. Are you travelling alone? That's quite young to be on your own in Rome. And when are you 16? The legal drinking age is 16 in Italy, so you might be old enough to drink.

Awww...Rome is an awseome place. Went a few weeks ago (and got engaged there ). I booked through Thomson city breaks. Stayed in the Spring House Hotel which is about a minute from the Vatican and 3 minutes from St Peters. It was a really nice hotel. Its quite far from the other sites though but its near a metro which was v.v.cheap and various bus tour things. Another hotel I considered was the City Hotel which is about 200 metres from the Spanish Steps so is a bit more central. Another nice one was the River Palace which is near the Villa Borghese which is a beautiful place to chill out and have a picnic. But have a browse on Thomson city breaks. And I chose my hotel based on the reviews on tripadvisor so thats worth a look.

You will have a great time out there. So much to see. Invest in a good guide book with a map in it :p:

Ah, that's ok then. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't sending a 15 year old girl into a bar full of Italian men on her own lol! Yeah, watch out for those Italian men! Oh and you can see most of it in 3 days, if you plan your time well - ditto the tip about a guide book - they're quite good. Essential things include the Colosseum, the Sistine Chapel (Although I'm not the Vatican's biggest fan, the Sistine Chapel is amazing) and the Roman remains - you can actually go into the senate building etc. I've stood on the spot where Caesar was murdered, for instance.

Oh, well make sure you pick an expensive one then lol! Ideally one with all drinks included, since it's your 16th, and you'll be legal. (I really should stop corrupting the youth) If you want to spend quite a lot, there's the Grand Hotel Palatino.

Yeah i was there last summer and i believe i am going there again this september. Im sure you will visit the regular attractions such as the trevi fountain and the pantheon a good place to visit is somewhere called Argentina, you close to loads of good stores and coffe shops there, try to use the trams where possible, they're very efficient. Italy is a fantastic place to visit, been there around 7 times now, got a brilliant nightlife.
