4 steps from Colosseo

Posted Oct 18, 2017 on Hotels
Excellent location and excellent host. 5 minutes away from colosseo. Host provided restaurants suggestions and gave good tips about Rome. We had some minor issues with cleanliness upon arrival, which was solved in minutes. Overall stay was very good and good ratio quality/price in Rome.

Coliseum Neighbor

Posted Oct 7, 2017
Pros: Staff and Location
Cons: Room cleanliness
Location: Nearby Colloseum
This is a townhouse accommodation similar to a B&B, not a hotel. Staff was extremely pleasant! Caterina was very welcoming. They went out and purchased us a new pillow as we requested more. We slept in at checkout day and were an hour late and they were very forgiving and even offered us a coffee on out way out. It is a shared little kitchen for some light breakfast with fruits and cereal and yogurts. Staff is not always present but were left #s in the event we needed anything. The room was slightly disappointing compared to photos shown. Dirty floors and scuffed up walls, shower gets water all over and therefore water damage around floor. Location is great though.

So close to everything but not very good

Posted Aug 24, 2017
Disappointing place to stay but it was so close to the colosseum. The place was very hard to find especially when we got in late. The breakfast was terrible and we only actually got one morning of it which was quite disappointing since it's a bed and breakfast and we should have had it every morning. The redeeming feature though is it's proximity. Only about a 20 minute to half hour walk from the main train station and within 2 minutes you can see the colosseum. If you can deal with a bit of dirt and an uncomfortable bed then the proximity to the the centre of town is worth it. Otherwise there are probably better places to stay.

The place is clean and tidy but the breakfast wasn't nourishing and the wifi was horrible!

good price very close to Colosseum

Posted Jan 23, 2017
Pros: Location was great, on ground floor( no stairs to climb )
Cons: new paint in bathroom
Location: Easy walking distance to Colosseum and Forum. Main train station about 20 min walk or 3 bus stops away. San Giovanni Basilica also about 20 min walk
Other than paint peeling off wall in Bathroom room was good,had some issues on checkout - inquired if could have late check out was advise no. We had to go to train station to book train for later in day we advised we had no problem to go into room to start cleanup as would be back close to check out time. Communicating to staff on hand seemed to not to translate well, we had emailed owner as well. When we got back about 1/2 hour prior to check out found had cleaned room already no towels left for us to use after bathroom use. As room on ground floor we found windows wide open, which anyone could of easily climbed in and out with in 30 seconds to take camera ( and pictures of trip to date ) as well as iPad which we had left charging. When tried to relay concern again language was issue and was told was ok to do what he had. When we emailed to owner our concern was told her staff know what they were doing and if they said no issue would be none?? A disapointing end to our stay

Thanks for the review! The staff who cleans the rooms on the first floor opens the windows to change the air every morning and nobody entered the room, or steal anything! Also the staff is always present and before leaving the room, the windows are closed! Hopefully see you soon!

This is not a hotel as such

Posted Oct 29, 2016
Pros: Rooms were tidied daily Spacious
Cons: Read above Should not be advertised as a hotel because it is not
Location: Central location for coliseum , forum
This is inbetween a b&b and a hostel. I thought I was booking a small hotel but would not class it as That at all. This is one floor of a building split into 4 rooms. Reception is a desk in the hallway Extra charge for check in at 6.30 Reception desk only manned for couple of hours in the morning Breakfast is not served in a dining room but is toast and fruit you help yourselve to from a small communal cupboard, or a pre wrapped croissant in your room. There is a kettle in the room but no fridge for milk, so you have to go to the communal fridge for milk , if you have been out and bought it !! There is a coffee machine , toaster and shared fridge in this cupboard. You help yourselves to things like toilet rolls etc also from this cupboard. Very little hot water unless you were first up at 7-7.30 Bath and basin pop up wastes did not pop up. Had a shallow bath one night and could not release waste to get rid of water, so next morning had to use mugs to empty bath to then reuse bath. Tv but no English speaking channels Good size rooms but bathrooms very tired and need replacing

Convenient and clean!!

Posted Oct 23, 2016 on Hotels
Super cute, clean and felt safe. Caterina is amazing, she is very easy to get a hold of and helped us arrange transportation to and from the airport. She also supplied maps and recommendations for restaurants in our area as well as the city center. We could see the colosseum from our room. Very close to the colosseum, a few minute walk through a park.
