This is NOT a 4* hotel!!!Posted Nov 17, 2015
I'm not sure where to start on the minus's for this bed & breakfast but here goes. This is not 4*, it is just 1 level up from a hostel. The room I was given was as basic as it could be, the bed was rock hard (think hospital trolley bed), it was dated, the bedspread had stains on it and the shower was useless. The area outside where the pre war lift is was grubby and uncared for. We were given 3 keys; main door, interior door and room door. Just what you need on a weekend break! The lift!! Well it was a mission to get in and out of it and should be condemned. The breakfast was so bad I only had it the first morning after that I ate out as everything was as basic and as dry as it gets. There are no English news channels on the tv and I was told that they only had this in the other sites! I understand this propiertor has a couple of other properties nearby and we perhaps were just given the worst one, however this property bears no relation whatsoever to the pictures I saw before I booked. I did not complain as I was only there for the weekend but suffice to say I will avoid this place like the plague. This is a 2* at best; I have added some pictures of the reality please look at them before you book. One very big plus is that it's a stones throw from the colleseum and the Roman forum.

Great location near the Coloseum if you can get itPosted Oct 27, 2015
Pros: The shower was large and it was still fair location close to Colosseum.
Cons: The Expedia listing is wrong - says all rooms with view of Colosseum but then we were put in a different property with no view that was two blocksaway
Location: Colosseum, restaurants, wine bars, Roman forum, Pallatine Hill
We decided to call the owner when we got in to avoid confusion about timing since we didn't know when we would actually get there from the airport. We had issue calling the owner since we didn't know that you don't have to use the first two numbers of the phone number. Right after reserving the hotel I emailed asking stating that we needed a room w/ two twin beds plus at least once closer to check in. When we arrived the room was made for one bed and luckily the cleaning lady was there and I let her know we needed the beds separated. She was very accomadating and nice. I reserved this B & B for the location with a view of the Colosseum but when we arrived the owner put us in another property that was another two blocks away and no view of the Colosseum. He said it is all the same B & B. We had to walk to breakfast at the other B & B. The breakfast was simple but good with excellent espresso or whatever drink you want for am caffine.

To be honest, average and I am being positivePosted Oct 25, 2015
Cons: service, organisation, room, breakfast, cost etc. it was like staying at a friends house who is doing you a favour, not somewhere you pay.
Location: colloseum and panatine hill were all awesome, plenty to eat and drink. Location is excellent
Now I dont like negative reviews, nor do I like being negative either, however, in this case I will admit I may be being a bit grumpy in this review. Right, first up, once I booked I got a message informing me there is no reception and to organise time of arrival via email (not a problem in its self). Emailed through details and then informed if there is an issue use whatsapp to message owner to organise meeting at hotel (again not a problem in its self). Meet the owner near the hotel, nice and friendly all good so whatsapp etc. no longer matters, however, we are not staying at the place, we are in a different block around the corner (again, on its own this is not an issue but you are starting to form an impression). Get around the block, no chance of a view like the photos but the owner says it is a nice appartment and it is noisy at the other place....ok.....but it is not that nice....and there is a view of a building site from one window the owner doesnt want you to open, however, you are there to see Rome and you will be out all day anyway.....so the room seems clean etc. the owner leaves you with directions back to the other block where you can get breakfast in the morning, not ideal but ok. When he goes you notice the TV does not work, only one pillow each and when having a shower you notice it overtops (ran out of characters to continue review, but I guess you can see where it is going, also note no access to breakfast (no sign for which bell), I would stay elsewhere)

hotel a unos pasos del ColiseoPosted Oct 14, 2015
Pros: la ubicación y es muy cómodo
muy agradable nuestro anfitrión Fabricio fue de mucha ayuda y teníamos a sólo unas cuadras el Coliseo que es un lugar mágico que te transporta al pasado de Roma algo que nunca olvidaré

Ideale Lage ganz in der Nähe des KolosseumsPosted Sep 17, 2015
Cons: Die Einzelbetten waren 80 cm breit, das ist für meine Bedürfnisse viel zu schmal.
Location: Ideale Lage um die Stadt zu erkunden.
Hübsches sauberes Zimmer mit relativ schmalen Einzelbetten, jedoch mit großem modernen Bad. Unsere Unterkunft lag nicht in der Straße mit Blick aufs Kolosseums, sondern in einer Querstraße. Der Vorteil: dort war es ruhiger, der Nachteil: kein Blick. Ich denke, darauf sollte man deutlicher hinweisen.

Loved it.Posted Aug 28, 2015
Just minutes away from all the historic attractions in Rome and within walking distance. Our room came with a lovely view of the courtyard and to die for breakfast. No flashing signs or front desk but the most wonderful host and cook. We couldn't have been happier with our stay.

It is the easiest to find, an address in the confirmation and directions on how to meet up with host would be helpful. But once we got settled in the place was great! Our host was extremely nice and helpful and even helped arrange transportation to the airport. It was a nice place with a short walk to the Colosseum and the Roman Forum.

Positives and negativesPosted Aug 8, 2015 on Hotels
This b&b is in an excellent location and spacious and provides an excellent base to explore Rome, but customer service could do with work and i wouldnt bother with the breakfast

Hotel was in a great location. It was central to any place you want to go to. Easily walk to anywhere (Sightseeing or restaurants). The only thing was that upon arrival, we were told that they can only take cash because their credit card machine does not work. If we were traveling just depending on credit card or debit card charges, we would have been screwed.
