Meanwhile, over at Hotel Indigo Rome St George, reviews are also looking pretty positive, though it seems rooms are small and storage space limited in this historic, 15th-century building. Garden and rooftop terrace, though, with sweeping views of Rome, seem to make up for this, as does the location, essentially between Piazza Navona and the Vatican (perfect for paying your respects to Cool Pope Francis).
Rates here are varying: €360 ($490) tonight as opposed to the €262 ($356) that were originally flagged up. However, once you hit August (low season), we found availability for €171 ($232) – much more palatable.
