Fantastic B&B in Rome!!

Posted Nov 23, 2014
What a great stay. Arches is only a few minutes walk from the Vatican and it is just a 7-10 minute walk from the metro. Paolo was awesome! Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable! We stayed in the Green Room. It was extremely clean, and the bathroom was large and modern. Our room had a pleasant balcony where we could enjoy the provided breakfast and relax with an espresso before a full day of site seeing. I would highly recommend this to my friends and family if they are looking for an oasis form the busy touristy sectors of Rome. Paolo is a wealth of knowledge and he will bend over backwards to make sure you have a great stay. Thanks for positively adding to our experience!

Pay for the Location

Posted Aug 30, 2014 on Hotels.com
We booked the Arches B&B the same-day for a 3-day, 2-night stay. The management was nice and accommodating, and Chiara gave us a good recommendations for things to see and how to get there. However, the room itself was not what we expected given the price. We were a family of 4 adults and stayed in the Yellow Room, which was the cheapest room. It was a single, small room with 1 double bed and 2 rollaway single beds. The private bathroom is NOT like the ones shown in the pictures, I am guessing those are the bathrooms for the other, more expensive rooms. Although the bathroom was big with lots of space, the shower and sink had mildew. The A/C was also not very good, and the Wi-Fi never worked in spite of being right next to the router on the other side of the wall. Breakfast was bare bones with pre-packaged pastries although there was also yogurt and orange juice provided. The only good thing we liked was the location, there was a gelato place right across the street and it was the best gelato we had during our entire 2-week trip. We also tried several of the small eateries close by that were also good and priced well. It is a 10 min or less walk from the Ottavanio Metro station if you walk slow. To get to St. Peter's Square is about 20-25 min walking slow as well. We woke up late but luckily made our 7:30 AM tour reservation in the Square since we were a reasonable walking distance.

Great B&B away from tourists but close to Metro

Posted Jul 12, 2014
Location: The Vatican, Metro. Denesi Cafe, Birreta & Wine around the corner. Napoli Pizzeria and an organic grocery store all nearby.
We loved staying here. The staff was terrific and the room was great. We stayed in the blue room. We loved having breakfast on our terrace each morning. Close to the Vatican but far enough away to escape the tourists. You can catch the Metro just a couple of blocks away. Best gelato across the street. Denesi Cafe next door was the best!

Close to Vatican and metro

We were in Rome for 4 days and enjoyed our stay here. Breakfast was great because we were able to make it ourselves and come and go as we please. Thank you Arches!

Es un apartamento muy amplio, en una zona tranquila, buen personal, buena limpieza y mejores camas. Esta muy bien conectado, a 5 min de una parada de metro. Hemos disfrutado mucho y repetiré una experiencia similar de bed & breakfast

Aangename, rustige plek

Posted Apr 27, 2014
Comfortabele kamer in een kleinschalige b&b, in een rustige buurt, maar toch vlakbij allerlei bezienswaardigheden.
