Not So Roma-ntic

Posted Oct 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
To start, our "private" bathroom was not attached to our room. Instead we had to cross the kitchen/common area. We literally had to step over someone's tied-up dog to get into our bathroom one of the days. You also need keys to lock/unlock every door. We had 6 keys in total. Don't expect any quick trips to the bathroom in the middle of the night as you'll be trying to figure out which keys open what. The breakfast consists of a few packaged gas-station quality snacks (crackers & cookies). There is also stale cereal and milk but no bowls anywhere. I ate my cornflakes out of a teacup. The proprietors are never there so if you have any issues you're directed to "leave a note" for them to see the next day. They show up sometime in the day to make the bed but will not wash dishes (there is a sign over the sink strongly directing you to wash your own dishes. If you don't wash them, they sit there for days). Our sheets or towels were not changed even once. Our bathroom was so grimy we had to wear flip-flops while showering and there was a strong smell of urine. For the bed, there are 2 flat pillows. The air conditioning described is also very misleading. There is no way to turn on the unit unless you agree to pay an extra fee. It's a small fee but another insult when you are lead to believe it's included in the cost of the room. There's a hospital nearby and ambulances drove by constantly. This was our worst experience in Europe by far.

Charming and Friendly

Posted Oct 1, 2011
We were very happy with our stay at Caty. We arrived late at night after a delay at the airport and Simone was there waiting for us and was very understanding. We had access to everything we needed - internet, private bathroom, airconditioner, small kitchen with stove top. The place was very secure and about a 10 minute walk to a Metro stop. Our room was cleaned each day and food was provided each day for breakfast. We enjoyed our stay at Caty, Simone was extreamly friendly and helpful.

Caty - great b&b but a bit out of the city centre

Posted Sep 23, 2011 on Hotels.com
A bit difficult to find the hotel so make sure you read up on how to get there. Lovely big room with ensuite. Also had the use of the kitchen in the communal area. Staff were nice and helpful. Towels are not replaced and ensuite bathroom isn't cleaned daily - we stayed 3 nights. Also rubbish wasn't emptied. Bed was made though. We did not realise we'd have to pay in cash which was a bit annoying due to cash withdrawal limits on our debit cards. It's on a busy road and you hear sirens and cars all night - we used earplugs. About a 10 min walk to the nearest metro station. Breakfast was a generous spread of packaged sugary foods! Good to take bits with you on a daily excursion though.

NOT WHAT I EXPECTED.

Posted Jul 11, 2011
This hotel is not the church that is shown in the picture on the website. It is located in a gated apartment area across the street from the church shown. When we arrived to check in, the manager was not there, and the gates, and all doors were locked. It took an hour to finally catch someone who knew the manager's phone number so we could call him to let us in. The room was nice, and included access to a separate shared kitchen area with stove and refrig. so you could prepare your food. Unfortunately, the room had no dresser or table to put our suitcases on, or our clothes in. There was a small closet to hang up a few things. The breakfast was all packaged snacks. The young man who was managing the rooms, only came once a day, so it was very difficult to arrange taxis, find information, etc. Also, he wanted us to pay cash in Euros for the room. He said he would take a charge card, but it would cost more. The final price was more than the amount quoted on the website. We had internet access for awhile, but on our last 2 days, the connection was cut off, and we could not confirm our flight reservations.

B& B Caty. Rome

Excellent location, just away from main centre, good restaurants and a lovely park near by. The owner Simone was very helpful.

Great location

Posted Apr 21, 2011
Caty B&B was very accessible, 10 minutes (approx) from the centre and Termini station. 3 buses connected to the main attractions, Colosseo, Fori Imperiali and San Pietro. Very easy to locate, the host was frendly, instructions were clear, the room was clean and we had our indepence. Very simple and accessible, price matched the standard of service. We were very happy to have found this B&B and certanly recommend it to others and possibly rebook it if back to Rome.
