Excellent B & B in Rome

Posted Aug 18, 2014
Pros: The room was spotless, quiet and comfortable with a private bathroom.
Cons: I was very impressed with it.
Location: The B & B is within walking distance of both the Termini ( railroad station) and the Colosseum. The Termini is where one can pick up the tour buses.
The breakfast was a self-serve, continental breakfast with a nice selection of choices. The landlady was very helpful with suggestions as to restaurants and good places to get gelato. She also told me where to go for the hop on-hop off buses and other tourist attractions without being overly attentive. I would highly recommend this B & B. I was given very explicit and easy to follow instructions on how to find it.

Lovely stay for family of 4

Posted Apr 29, 2014
Pros: Condition is great, location is good - 15 mins walk to Ancient city, next to Metro so you can go to Vatican directly.
Cons: Breakfast is self-serve.
Location: There are lots of shops, a supermarket nearby, and a big Gelatelier across from street
We (2 adults and 2 teenagers) had a quadruple room that is big and comfortable, and lovely decorated. There was enough room for a dinning table which enabled us to have a couple of in-room meals out of groceries from nearby supermarket - which I highly recommend as a change to daily restaurant food. Staff is super-nice: gave us details on how to get there, advice on getting around and touring the city (we only had two days there).

Great for family with two kids

Posted Apr 15, 2014
We stayed in their quadruple room, which was perfect for us. It had one double bed for the me and the wife, and two singles for our two boys, ages 7 and 12. The room was great, clean and new, good bathroom and shower in the room, and nice space and dining table to eat on. It appeared everything had just been updated, bath tiles, etc., really nice and clean. Breakfast provided was toast, cereal, milk, and juice, but we knew that going in and it was great for getting as fueled up and out the door in the morning. After long days seeing Rome we brought in carryout and had nice in room dinners. Access to the metro is just a block away, and the Coliseum is a 15 minute walk, so location is fine by me. There aren't a lot of restaurants especially between the hotel and terminal station. But if you go a block or two the other way - other side of the park above the metro - there's a few that look good. Free wifi was good and fast, even downloaded a movie one night for the kids. We walked to terminal station with two rolling suitcases, and that was fast and easy 15 minutes or so. Overall, it's great value especially when I compare to the others I looked at. They didn't take credit cards, but they communicated that early by email and that too was easy. We really liked the two friendly owners. They took care of all our questions, provided a map, etc. I think there's only 2-3 rooms, though we didn't see other guests. The place was nice and quiet. I highly recommend it!!

Within walking distance

Posted Mar 9, 2014 on Hotels.com
This B&B is in an old building near the main train terminal and within walking distance to the nearest Metro stop (about 2 blocks) and we were even able to walk to several sites such as the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, and the Roman Forum about a mile away. The neighborhood is currently a working class neighborhood where we were able to experienced how the people who lived there actually lived. There were some nice local restaurants within a couple blocks which served good food at reasonable prices as well a grocery store and a great gelatto shop. The neighborhood was a little scary arriving at night when almost all the shops were closed as a lot of the buildings are covered with graffiti, but as you can see from my prior comments once we saw it in the daylight it turned out to be a fun and interesting experience, The owners of the B&B were very nice and helpful. The room had a large bedroom with 5 beds total, a double and 3 singles, a good sized bathroom, and a small sitting area. They were very prompt about cleaning every day. The breakfast that is included was in your room. They provided milk, juice, coffee and tea. Also there were individually wrapped breakfast rolls/biscuits and cereal. The only real issue that we had with the room is that the wireless access provided was actually in the owners apartment next door so we couldn't get a strong enough signal to access it unless we sat in the stairwell outside the front door, as the walls in the old building are very thick.

Great for what it is

Posted Jan 23, 2014
Pros: Location and cost.
Cons: Please update the description regarding the wi-fi.
Location: Check out Google Maps Street View ahead of time to see the area. It is not the prettiest, but I did not choose this location to stay inside...
This location was great for what it is - a place to crash between long days of walking and sightseeing. Please go in with this in mind and you will be happy. It is a small apartment located generally southeast of most tourist attraction areas, close enough that we walked with our three children to most places. For farther locations, there is a metro (subway) stop very close and the main train station is also a short walk away. The proprietor Alessandro was very friendly; we exchanged a few emails prior to the trip and he had a map for us when we arrived to point out some key locations. The bedroom was large enough for our family of 5, which would have required two rooms at a traditional hotel. I do take a little exception to the "free wireless internet". The "free wifi" means connecting to the proprietor's home network, which can only really be accessed in the stairwell. Wifi was a big factor in choosing this location (since I don't have an international phone plan) and I was expecting to have access throughout the apartment.

Great hotel, Location not so

Posted Nov 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
An overall good place to stay. Not so far from the train station which made it easy to come and go to the airport. The rooms are spacious and well maintain. I personally don't really like the surrounding neighborhood but this could be just personal preference.
