L'Aquila hotels and hostels
Azzurro Residence Hotel
San Giovanni Bosco
The cheapest beds in town are at this religious complex, a short walk downhill from the historic centre. Don't expect much, just clean, basic rooms and an early night, courtesy of the 23:00 curfew.
In a discreet 18th-century palazzo just off Piazza del Duomo, this welcoming hotel oozes quiet style.
Hotel San Michele
Another good option near the Villa Comunale park, this modern hotel boasts slick, soundproofed rooms and stylish bathrooms - think yellow walls and eye-catching mosaic tiling.
