Hello
run a search on our site http://www.accommodationz.com/
I'm pretty sure you can find a cheap hotel or a B&B and in the center of
Rome

I would reccommend staying near the Colosseum, the Vatican or close to
Piazza Navona

No problems, I'll just find a more heat resistant wife.

I can reccomand you the Mecenate Palace, a quiet 4 star hotel, renewed one
year ago. Just 62 rooms, a very nice athmosphere and a very good restaurant
inside.
I remember had some fantastic buffet breakfast there! The prices, if you
book on line now for august, are very convenient. The triple room is 200
euros and 280 for the deluxe suite.

http://www.bookings.net/hotel/it/gtmecenate.html?aid08057

Is located excatly close to Piazza Santa Maria Maggiore, near the Basilica.
This mean that you are close to metro station, train station, in a very
quiet area.

Ciao!

This is indeed close to the train station, but not to the historic
areas. I also get the feeling that you have a business connection with
this hotel.
