8 fantastic family-friendly holiday apartments in Rome you’ll love

by marta

Our handpicked selection of 8 of the best family-friendly holiday apartments in Rome, chosen for location, amenities and kid-friendly facilities.

Short-term rentals and holiday apartments are fantastic accommodation options for families visiting Rome with kids, especially for those who have more than one of two children.

While there are family hotels in the city (see here >>> our favorite family hotels in Rome city center), finding rooms for 4+ people is not easy and the cost of quadruple rooms and interconnecting rooms is often so high, apartments often result in being a better deal.

As well as more space, apartments also come with the advantage of a kitchen and the opportunity to live the city a little more like locals, which is a great way to experience Rome as a real place and not just a tourism destination: Rome has a wonderful, hyper local soul!

Rome has a plethora of short-term rental options for families.

So many, in fact, that the quest for a great family apartment in Rome become overwhelming very quickly.

This is why we are here to help!

I am from Rome and, over the course of the years, we have come across wonderful holiday apartments in Rome for kids and parents: today we share our short list with you!.

For this list, I have focused only on very central areas that put you in beautiful, safe, well served and walkable areas, so you have the best of Rome on your doorstep. The areas I picked are Pantheon / Navona, Monti/Colosseo and Trevi, all excellent.

The booking links I have included are to booking.com as this is the platform I myself use to book my own family vacation accommodation. I prefer it to others as they often have free cancellation options, their pricing is more transparent and they have a ‘genius’ program that means you get better prices if you are a recurring user.

I hope you find this list handy!
