Great locationPosted Jun 16, 2013 on Hotels.com
Perfect location for Vatican and St Peters, right on the metro line. Friendly staff, and varied breakfast made a great stay. We were on the front room, and the noise from the nearby trams was quite loud. Also had to go to the hall to get internet, a bit annoying but not a deal breaker. We would stay here again.

Close to VaticanPosted Jun 12, 2013 on Hotels.com
Fabio was fantastic! He greeted us promptly, gave us excellent walking directions for sights, the best gelato and best nearby restaurant, we took him up on it and he was right, fantastic food. The price was great for a clean B&B and 5 minute walk to Vatican. The room was hot but it seemed that there was so sort of A/C, we just did not have the remote to operate it. Breakfast was typical croissants, bread, and beverages. I would stay here again.

Very comfortable and reasonable B&B near VaticanPosted Oct 29, 2012
Staff can speak English very well. The hotel is located just above the Ottaviano - St Pietro Metro Station, very convenient place to visit the Vatican city. Caution is needed that the check-in time is 08:30 thru 14:00, late arrival is not allowed.
Excellent service, comfortable roomsPosted Jun 22, 2012 on Hotels.com
My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in total, at the beginning and end of our trip to Italy. Fabio, the manager, was incredibly friendly and helpful giving us tips on where to eat, sites to see, etc. It's possible to book tours and get tickets through him as well. The location is excellent as it's literally steps from a metro stop. It's not quite walkable to the main sites of the Colosseum and Ancient Rome (a 15 minute metro ride, 1 hr walk), but is within walking distance of the Vatican. The rooms are small but comfortable and clean, with new AC units that made our sleeps blissful despite the heat wave! It comes highly recommended!

Would not return to this onePosted Apr 26, 2011
We arrive to Federici around 10 pm and ring the buzz and a lady speaking only italian let us in after many attempts with the buzzer but did not tell us which floor so we kep pushing the buzzer and then when we were in she started screaming about why were pressing the buzz so many times and tellings us that we were really loud. Come on! I don't think that is the way to treat your guests. A few minutes later she was OK and tried to explain us Rome with a map. -The place is clean and is really close (2 blocks) to Vatican City. The metro stop is literally in front of the place (Ottaviano-A) which is quite good. -The bed was super uncomfortable because they joined two twin beds and you could really feel it in the middle. -The breakfast is not great compared to other places (B&B) I've stayed in - cereal, bread (peanut butter, nutella, jam, butter), coffee/tea, and maybe some yogurt. Our last day there our train was not leaving until late in the afternoon so we wanted to do a last walk around Rome and we asked Fabio if we could levae our bags in the room as he had no one coming in and he said sure if you pay me 30 euros or you can't just leave it in my office (this is what we did). It seems that he could have easily let us use the room for a few hours after check out without asking for the money but is just me. Overall, the place is not that cheap for what you get. I think that for the money you could probably find something better and feel more comfortable.
