This is not a hotel, but a bed and breakfast.

Pros: Location, price and size of room.
The room fit our needs. The bathroom needed some maintenance. Slow draining sink and shower that wouldn't stay up. Breakfast was ok, but plated before you showed up. Staff/owner was friendly and helpful. It was ok walking distance to Coluseum and Metro. Great ruins and old church just around the corner.

Nice breakfast!

4 out of 5
Posted Jun 16, 2014
Pros: We liked the breakfast and the spaciousness of the room.
Cons: The down side is having to decide in advance when you will be at the hotel, especially if like us you hit a problem en route.
Location: The Obelus is well placed and as others have said there is a lovely restaurant just around the block. Tram 3 takes you into the centre.
The room is a generous size as the photos suggested. It is in a residential area and there are just three rooms in the guesthouse all off a small dining room and kitchen. The breakfast was surprisingly good: cold meat, butter, a cheese triangle, yoghurt, cornflakes, lightly toasted bread and a croissant as well as coffee.

Mona the best kept Secret

Pros: Proximity to attractions and metro station, and Mona
Cons: Need to pay staff more money
Location: Good location, even to Vatican City
If it were not for Mona I am not sure we would have ever seen our luggage which the INEPT Alitalia airline could not seem to get to get to us. Mona stayed on her own time to sign for our bags, Thank you Mona.

Pros: Lcation
Cons: Breakfast and the hot water thing.
Location: walking distance fm center Roma and metro line
Nice B&B in great location, very clean comfortable room. Shower is too small, problems with outflow of hot water. Breakfast was also very dissapointing. Bottom line Cost / Value place is recommended.

Great Place, Location, Service

We were very pleased with our stay at Obelus and would definitely return. Monika and Davida who own the place were extremely helpful and welcoming. Nothing was ever a problem and it felt as if we had gone to stay at some relatives place. Being a family of four with two very young children, 4 and 20months, we had the Quad room which was quite large and fit our 10pieces of luggage with no problems and plenty of room to move about. Being a family the key ingredient is cleanliness and this place has that in spades. The location is just perfect, we walked 15minutes at a leisurely stroll to the Colosseo, but of course after 3minutes walking you have it in view, so you don't even notice the time. There is an excellent chinese takeaway shop on the main street and about 3mins from your door (1min walk to the main st) and we basically ate here nearly everyday and night. Lavanderia (laundromat) is a couple of doors from the takeaways as well as all of the other shops you'll ever need. All forms of public transport are also 2mins walk away. Thanks so much for a great experience and helping us to really enjoy Roma

The Obelus is a clean and nice Bed and Breakfast. Very convenient to the Metro and within walking distance to the Colosseum. Bedroom was clean and the owners very polite and helpful. We would book with them again.

J'ai passé 3 nuits a l'appart d'Obules, j'etais tres contente de la reception, la propreté et la disponibilité des equipments dans la cuisine (le frigidaire, la cuisiniere, les verres et plats), la salle de bain (le sechoir, la machine a laver, le seche linge/sechoir) et les chambers (les serviettes, les teles, ect) J'ai vraiment aimé le calme du cartier, la propreté de la place, et que le lieu est tres proche de la station du metro, tram, bus et le coloseo! C'etais trop bien pour moi et ma famille, et le personnel etait vraiment trop gentil, chaleureu et disponible pour tout aide Je recommende le lieu a toute personne en visite a Rome!
