Panda has long been popular among budget travelers, so it books up quickly. Rooms are spare, but not without some old-fashioned charm, like characteristic Roman cotto (terracotta) floor tiles and the odd frescoed ceiling or exposed beams. Most rooms are a bit cramped, but for these prices in this neighborhood they remain a very, very good deal. Outside your doorstep are several great cafes and wine bars where you can start the day with espresso and end it with a nightcap. Tip: With its budget single rooms with shared baths, Panda is a good pick for solo travelers.
