Recommendations for hotel in Rome

Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced contemporary hotel in Rome, as central as possible?

It will be my first time in Rome and I'm taking my boyfriend as a treat in April so looking for somewhere a bit special.

Also any tips would be appreciated. Cheers!!

Depends how much you want to spend really. Have you looked at trip advisor? That's the best place to get hotel recommendations, even if you look around a few sites to actually book. Trastevere is a nice area though, very central and atmospheric, and also the area around the Pantheon.
Which airport are you getting into? (assuming you're flying)
Flying into Campiano. I'd heard Trastevere area is nice - is it walkable to most of the sights? I've had a look at a few hotel sites however there are that many!!

Trastevere, the old Jewish quarter in Rome is a wonderful part of the city with a fair number of restaurants and pubs. The Hotel San Francesco on Via Jacopa de' Settesoli is recommended. On foot the main sites in the historical centre, the colosseum and the forums etc are within fair walking distance, just take a good pair of comfortable shoes.

We just booked a holiday to Rome this afternoon :)
Woo = tricky one!! There are so many places to stay in Rome and so many different opinions. You can check out TripAdvisor of course but if you are staying a short while and not too keen on taking the bus etc then you need to be in the Pantheon area so that you can walk to the Colloseo and to St Peters/Vatican. If you don't mind a bit more of a hike then look at the Santa Maria Maggiore area - good pizzas, cheaper hotels and easy walking to the east side of the river. We don't like the Spanish steps region and the places on the Trevi fountain piazza are poor.
Think where you want to be and what you want to see and then make your choice.
I love Rome some of the cheaper places are around the bus termini bus r easy to use and cheap, I usually get a bus 20 min ride to Vatican and take my day from their, the hotels are expensive at the mo and bewar of the star rating last time i stayed at the Champaign plaice 4* but it was more like a 3* it was nice but defo not a 4*

Beware of pick pockets there r loads of them, it is the only place i have every been pick pocketed they took my wallet from a bum bag that was zipped closed and in front of me,

I have been 8 times to Rome you will love it the only other thing i do not like is the tinkers trying to sell u tat at the trevie fountain and at the Spanish steps just be firm and say no.

I love the pizza Navona by night expensive to eat there and food just OK but if u want to eat there share a pizza for lunch

one day per month the vatican musume is free one day a month you can check the day on the vatican web sight even if you have to pay to get in it is well worth it
if you want to know any more let me know

The best way into Rome is by this bus. Drops you off a couple of streets away from the Termini rail station.

Trastavere is the wrong side of the river for me and a bit tatty - has some 'traditional' eateries, not my cup of tea.
I don't find the centre of Rome is all that big and it's very easy to navigate on foot or by public transport. Most of the main sites are easy to get to and the trams and buses are cheap and simple to use. I think Trastevere is pretty good for walking to most of the sites; just hop over the river and then from Lago Argentina you can get buses and trams to pretty much anywhere. You can also easily walk to the Colosseum, Pantheon, Forum, Domus Aurea, Spanish Steps, etc from there. To get to the Vatican you might want to get a bus as it's a bit further; the walk is interesting though if the weather is good.
As for getting into Rome from the airport depending on where you stay there are fixed prices for taxis so you shouldn't get ripped off; I would consider getting a taxi as the bus can take a while, althought it is much cheaper, and last time I was there the taxi was about 40euros all in.
Do you have any particular things which you want to see? Miles is definitely right about the Vatican museums although beware of queues on the free entry days. If you haven't booked in advance- and want to go- I would recommend going to the entrance, explain to one of the guards that you would like to book but haven't been able to (the usual way of doing this is to fax in advance I think), and they take you into the office and book you in. I found it was best to book because you can queue for hours to get in; with a booking you get to go straight to the front of the queue (which can be literally many 100s of meters long). The guided tour is pretty good as well because the collection is absolutely vast. It is really worth going.
Thanks for all the tips, much appreciated :)
We stayed at the Santa Constanza. It's really cheap and clean and modern and quite well located too.

Shame about the city though really, I didn't find that anywhere nearly as agreeable as the hotel.
