Hipmunk's most popular hotels in Termini
Romans are conflicted about Termini station and its surrounding working-class neighborhood, which is home to Rome's most diverse community. The area immediately around the hulking, Fascist-era station is gray with pollution and notorious for prostitution. But venture farther west of the station, and you'll discover a vibrant cosmopolitan neighborhood with affordable boutique hotels, friendly neighborhood bars, and authentic Bengali, Somali, and Szechuan restaurants. East of the station lies San Lorenzo, a laid-back, tree-lined neighborhood that wakes up around noon, just in time to welcome Rome's university students and starving artists into excellent pizzerias, cafes, and mom-and-pop pasta joints. For a taste of the local life at a bargain price, San Lorenzo is a draw for international hipsters, but keep your city smarts sharp around Termini, day or night.

The fall of Rome is greatly exaggerated: much of the ancient Roman imperial forum and the Colosseum is still standing, pilgrims are lining up at St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City for a glimpse of the pope and Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel. Centro Storico counters are packed for afternoon espresso and aperitivi before vast dinners in Testaccio. And Valentino-clad fashionistas stomp the bar-lined cobblestone streets of Trastevere in stilettos without even a wobble.
