01 Daphne Trevi
The Trevi is split into two locations, both close to the famous fountain on quiet side streets. It's run by friendly staff who know how to make a great latte; the hands-on owners are Italian-American. Expect wi-fi and air con in the simple and tasteful rooms, as well as guidebooks and a library in the sitting room. Doubles from £74. www.daphne-rome.com

02 Hotel Modigliani
Cheery staff welcome you to this 24-room gem, positioned close to elegant, expensive Via Veneto. Bedrooms are spotless if a little dated and the best come with balconies. There's a light, bright room for breakfast and lunch, and a relaxing lounge with a bar and free wi-fi, plus a garden to escape the bustle. Includes two apartments— one ideal for families, the other, for honeymooners. Doubles from £53. hotelmodigliani.com

03 The Beehive
You'd struggle to find a friendlier sanctuary than this, two streets from Roma Termini station. The 'Sweets' rooms are well designed and equipped with organic soaps, air-con and free wi-fi. The quietest overlook a courtyard garden — a great place to chill out with antipasti and wine. Splash out on a cooked breakfast — pancakes, omelettes, maple syrup — or a vegan buffet, three nights a week. Doubles from £66. the-beehive.com

04 B&B Cristiana
This cosy, friendly two-bedroom B&B is a five-minute tram ride from Trastevere in a stately block overlooking a courtyard of mosaics and magnolias. Breakfast comes complete with delicious home-baked pastries and a wide range of herbal teas. Boredom will be kept at bay: cookery classes and city tours are available to book, while the surrounding area is abuzz with pizzerias and bars. Doubles from £62. bbcristiana.com
