Staying near Termini station: good to know

The area around Termini is varied in style and feel and I find it handy to think of it as with three souls. 

The area immediately in front of the station has several five stars hotels overlooking large, beautiful and busy squares such as monumental Piazza della Repubblica.  These are perfect especially for business stays or if you want a high end, spacious, airy hotel. 

The area between the station and the Colosseum is the area of Rione Monti (Monti neighborhood) which has small cobbled streets and a romantic and hipster atmospheres. Here you have smaller hotels, perfect especially for couples. 

The area immediately around the station and Via Marsala is different again and has mostly budget hotels that can be handy to keep costs down while in Rome.
