Walk to the Vatican
This uber-cool, rock-'n'-roll-themed hotel puts you just north of the Vatican – a 15-minute stroll through the elegant residential district of Prati. The nearest metro station, Ottaviano, is just 6 blocks away and will get you to Termini Station in 6 stops.
Explore the real Rome
You'll be close to Rome's major attractions – 4 or 5 metro stops from Old Rome – and can find authentic Italian trattorias and cafés in the surrounding streets and piazzas. You can also borrow a bike for free and pedal around town.
Hotel Franklin Feel the Sound will have you grooving to tunes as you enjoy a drink in the cocktail lounge. And you'll also get free WiFi throughout. A free breakfast is served outside in the courtyard – a big hit with guests.
Fancy a disco ball in the bathroom? How about snare drums as bedside tables? Rooms here have a decidedly musical feel, with top-notch sound systems (you can rent CDs and records). Plus you'll have cool perks including cable TV, 24-hour room service, and a minibar.
