Overall, great place!

Posted Jun 21, 2014
The hotel was pleasant to stay in. Owner's son spoke English, so it was easy to communicate. Efficient check in and check out procedures. The locks to the doors were a struggle. We often times had to have people help us get into the apartment. The keys were strange. Also, breakfast was provided and they did replinesh, but the other guys sharing the unit ate our cereal and milk. It would be nice to have separate fridge space or labels.

Comfortable and private with a view of the Vatican from kitchen window. Convenient to get around city by foot or taxi, would definitely return again. Owner is very kind & friendly.

our visit to the vatican

Posted Jan 6, 2014
Pros: Location was excellent for the purpose.
We never expected the accommodation to be family friendly, no nuisance, marco the owner is very nice, friendly and accommodating. Despite the failure of expedia to specify that the family room is only for 4 persons not 5????since we are 3 adults and 2 children under 10 y.o....we booked through expedia as 5 persons in total. The apartment was very clean as it is cleaned everyday by the keepers cleaner. All necessary utensils are provided in the separate kitchen & dining.....ready made food for breakfast was also provided on a daily basis and its handy when you roam around Rome....very near to the vatican which is just a stone through away, st. peters square is just 5 mins. walk and very near to all restaurants, convenient stores and transportations.Definitely will book again when going back to rome....thank you marco....

the only regret of the trip was staying here

Posted Nov 16, 2013 on Hotels.com
We have stayed in several incredible, hospitable places while in Italy; this place is not one of them. Unless you like sleeping in rooms with paper thin walls in a tiny apartment next to crying babies (apparently a favorite type of customer around this place) you will likely be miserable too. Hospitality is a concept that is lost on the people who run this place. Oh, and it isn't a bed and breakfast! They leave a snack tray of cheap, packaged, 50 cent cookies and sweet rolls, with a sign in the kitchen warning you not to take any additional snacks.its like getting a ration of food in a communist country that is attempting to inflict diabetes on the population. On the upside it is clean; but all of the places we have stayed were clean, with full breakfasts, wonderful hospitality, no crying babies, and actually cost less, while still holding great locations. Trust me: stay somewhere else. In order for you to think this is a nice place, your baseline would have to be a jail cell with a guard that punches you in the face periodically. It will leave you feeling cheated. This place is utterly miserable and should not be advertised as a B&B.

Great Location and friendly service

Posted Oct 18, 2013 on Hotels.com
Ideally located for Vatican visits and the metro stop is nearby for accessing the centre of town. Marco, the owner was very friendly and helpful too. The accommodation is a converted flat in nice courtyard apartment and the rooms are clean and comfortable. We had room 3 which has the advantage of an outdoor area but was on the main road side of the apartment so ear plugs were a must. Would recommend and would be happy to use again.

When going to hotel you should send an email of when you are arriving. We arrived and had to wait about 20 minutes. Someone from the restaurant called for us because this is an apartment so there is no lobby to check in. They say is breakfast buffet and not true is coffee and a pastry.

A very spacious room, kept clean and located very close to the Vatican City. Be sure to call and let them know an arrival time.

Great apartment by the vatican.

Posted Nov 26, 2012
Pros: Clean, spacious and good location.
Location: Close to vatican, restaurants, metro, bus stop.
The apartment was very spacious, well furnished, and had a washer (no dryer, but it had drying racks and an iron/ironing board) and a full kitchen. The location is great - right by the vatican and close to the metro and bus stop. Lots of restaurants in the vicinity. The staff were very helpful our first day - providing directions and restaurant recommendations and a cell phone number in case we needed anything. It is *not* a hotel though so don't expect someone to be at your beck and call. They also gave us tips on which areas to avoid at night. They leave juice, deli meat, jams, cheese, croissants, breads etc in the apartment for you for breakfast so you can partake at your leisure (everything is prepackaged though so you may need to supplement with fruits, eggs etc).

The vatican right across the street.

Posted Oct 24, 2012 on Hotels.com
This bed and breakfast seems to have been converted from the owner's apartment. Our room was spacious and very clean and had a wonderful view of the vatican which is right across the street. The community kitchen was small, clean and self serve. The family that staffed the place were very friendly and helpful though not all of them spoke english so sometimes we had a brief delay while we waited for one of the family to show up that could communicate with us. Also, they don't live on the premises but were available via phone and always showed up quickly if we needed assistance. The only problem we had was with the keys. One key opened the gate to the courtyard, one opened the door to the building, one opened the door to the apartment and one opened the door to our room. Two of the keys were old skeleton keys and could sometimes be a bit tricky to use. It was all part of the fun we had on our first adventure in Rome. A very charming place!
