This Boutique Hotel is Located on Rome’s Most Quaint Cobblestone Street

Hotel Indigo Rome – St. George is a boutique five-star hotel in the middle of old Rome, perfectly positioned on the quaint Via Giulia. 

This street is exactly what comes to mind when you think of Italy—cobblestone, colorful stucco, ivy-covered arches, and dresses drying on clothing lines. The historic Via Giulia is quiet, too, which is shocking given its proximity to the bustling areas of Campo de Fiori and Navona Square. Plus, iconic landmarks like Vatican City, Trevi Fountain, and the Colosseum are a 25-minute walk away. 

St. George offers the best of both worlds when it comes to style. While the exterior looks like it was plucked from a history book, the property boasts contemporary Italian design with sleek furniture and modern artwork. 

Each room is sundrenched and surprisingly spacious with large bathrooms and rainfall showers. If you can, opt for a room with a balcony—expect views of Vatican city made better by complimentary Italian cookies and in-room espresso.

And if you’re obsessed with the tiny colorful cars? Then you’re in luck—some rooms feature murals of the Fiat500 for a classic Italian touch. You’ll also find a collector’s edition cream Vespa in the lobby, inspired by the one driven by Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday. 

The rooftop at St. George is what dreams are made of (my only Lizzie McGuire reference in this post, I promise) thanks to panoramic views of the city. It’s here that you can grab a sunset dinner at I Sofà, a restaurant specializing in authentic and locally-sourced Roman dishes. 

I Sofà also handles complimentary breakfast, which is a spread of dreams—picture a colorful buffet of fresh fruits, pastries, and local produce served in the courtyard or terrace. Other amenities include turndown service and free access to the spa’s hot tub, sauna, and Turkish bath.

Our Favorite Thing About the Hotel? A central location on a quiet street that checks off the “idyllic Italian vacation” boxes: terracotta roofs and locals whizzing by on red Vespa’s. Throw in fresh fruit stands for good measure. 

Whats Nearby? Campo de Fiori market, Navona Square, and the pasta paradise of Via del Governo Vecchio. You’re also a 25-minute walk to Trevi Fountain, Vatican City, the Colosseum, and the nightlife neighborhood of Trastevere. 

Any Neighborhood Recs? Sip on local brews at Me Che Siete Venuti A Fa before heading to dinner on Via del Governo Vecchio, a restaurant-laden street that solidifies Rome’s reputation as foodie heaven. While there, order cacio e pepe at Cantina e Cucina or a thin-crust slice from Pizzeria Da Baffetto—regardless of your meal choice, make sure to end the night with gelato at Frigidarium. And if you sympathized with Tanya McQuoid’s desire to “look like Monica Vitti” during her Italian vacation in The White Lotus, don’t skip a morning Vespa tour.
