Rome family hotels with a pool that are great for kids

Our roundup of the best family hotels in Rome with a pool that are great for kids, to find family fun and shelter from the Italian summer sun!

I always say that, if you can, you should avoid visiting Rome in summer. 

However, I know that this is not always possible, especially if your travels are tied to school holidays, so today I am sharing a list of the best family hotels in Rome with family friendly swimming pools, the ultimate weapon to beat the summer sizzle in the Eternal city!

As you will see, the selection of hotels on this page leans heavily towards 5 stars establishment and this is not by choice.

In Rome, mostly because of the nature of the buildings in the city center, only few city center hotels have a pool and those that do, price themselves at the very high end of the accommodation spectrum. 

To create an article useful to as many travelers as possible, this is my selection of hotels in Rome with a kid friendly pool including some in areas that fall outside my first choice of the best place to stay in Rome for location.

I believe that, in the summer months, this compromise can be worth it, especially if travelling with your kids who may find the heat of the Roman summer hard to take.

I hope you find this selection of family hotels in Rome with a pool useful.

Safe travels to Rome!
