via del Governo Vecchio, 73

Comfortable, friendly, great location; good for families

We stayed here for our first two nights in Rome, before heading to our villa rental in Umbria.

The room was huge - plenty of room for me and the two kids - the bathroom super updated, and top-notch a/c and wi-fi. The coffee maker and stocked fridge was much appreciated with everyone on different jet lag schedules! The garden was lovely - one afternoon we picked up salumi and other snacks and relaxed there. When I asked at the desk where I might be able to buy a bottle of wine nearby, the concierge just gave me one!

Location is super central - depending on your crowd tolerance, maybe a bit too much so: Piazza Navona with all it has to offer is truly right outside the door. But once you get inside noise is never an issue. Price was right too - highly recommend!

Navona Garden Suites is a great place to stay in Rome!

This was a great find! We had a nice room and bathroom. It is off a small busy road near Piazza Navona, but after you open the door and go through to the garden, where our room was located, it is very peaceful.

I wish we were there longer to take advantage of it. There were many different items in the room for breakfast - more than we needed. The owner and his employees are very nice and they offer tons of information.

I know we had a better price by paying cash--but it is something you have to discuss with them. This would be our choice when we return.

Dennis and Loredana treated us like family. Coming home each night after a day of touring felt like the old neighborhood.

Navona Garden Suites was our home for a week in Rome prior to a two week all-Italy cruise. The property is a combination of dental suites, and two suites with either two queen or a king bed combination.

The rooms are large hotel size with ample bathrooms.

A large continental breakfast is served on the patio or in your bedroom.

A Real Estate agent - if listing the property - would say, "location, location, location!" The owners have other properties available within walking distance. You are less than 2 blocks from Piazza Navona and close to cafes, bars, restaurants, newsstands and gelato.

The owners arranged for airport pickup for us and at the end of our stay a van to take three couples to the Port of Rome to meet a cruise ship. This was our fourth trip to Rome and we will not hesitate to return to Navona Garden Suites. We took advantage of a spring discount for a week at a rate of 774 euros in the Da Vinci suite.

The property will compete in the three star category for service but has a warmth that cannot be found in similar more expensive hotels. We were welcomed with prosecco and a guided walk in the neighborhood. Grazie mille, Dennis, Loredana and staff.
