Very nice B&B for a city break in Rome
Posted May 6, 2015
Recommended for a single guest or a couple after a B&B in the older part of Rome. You are within walking distance of the Colosseum, the Forum (including the Arch of Titus), Piazza Venezzia (with the memorial to Victor Emanuel II, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona etc. A little further away you have the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain (currently undergoing renovation). The Vatican/St Peters and Castel Sant'Angelo are about 45 minutes on foot. Of relevance to Jewish visitors is that the hotel is no more than 15 minutes on foot from the Great Synagoge at Lungotevere de Cenci and the "Ghetto" (where numerous kosher restaurants are found, including one, BaGhetto, that offers Sabbath meals by pre-arrangement and pre-payment).
This is a basic hotel, located in a former convent. The rooms are small but well appointed. You get fridge/minibar, TV and free WiFi. Our room had a balcony opening onto an interior courtyard (with a lemon tree laden with fruit, very charming). Because the hotel is on a side-street, there is relatively little noise at night.
Breakfast is basic but ample (hard boiled eggs, sliced meat and cheese, bread, cakes, fruit and cereal, with juice and tea/coffee). And the room keeps long hours.
