God beliggenhet.

Posted Sep 28, 2014
Pros: Beliggenheten.
Cons: Heisen.
Location: Flere restauranter på piazzaen ved hotellinngangen. Kort avstand til mange severdigheter. Vi gikk fra Vaticanet tilbake til hotellet.
Greit fungerende hotel,med adresse Piazza Sforza Cesarini 28, bortsett fra heis i ustand og rom i 5.etg. Veldig hjelpsom betjening (Marco).

Amazing location close to everything!!! We were able to walk to all the cool sites. 10 minutes to piazza novona, 15 min to trevi fountain, 15 min to Spanish steps, 15 minutes to Vatican . Perfect location

Très décevant :-(

Posted Oct 24, 2013
Pros: La situation dans la ville et la qualité du lit
Cons: LES SERVICES !!! La propreté l'acceuil les détails
Location: Au milieu de la ville, nous sommes proche de tout : d'ailleurs, nous avons tout fait à pied (collisé, forum, vatican, panthéon etc...) !
Ce n'est pas un hôtel : Pas de réception, pas de service (petit déjeuner minimum vital, pas de produits frais et à se servir soi-même dans un couloir...) Et pourtant la nuit n'est pas donné !!! Ce n'est pas un B&B : Nous ne sommes pas chez l'habitant, nous ne rencontrons personne, pas de bon conseils ou de tuyaux sur la ville pour notre séjour. Bon, ce ni-hôtel ni B&B est bien situé et dans un très bel immeuble romain (mais archi bruyant !!) La déco est... chargée (mais c'est amusant) ! Le ménage est plus que sommaire (moisissure dans la salle de bain, calcaire dans le lavabo, c'est mon conjoint qui a dû enlever du syphon de la douche les cheveux des anciens clients !!!!!!) et les détails ne sont pas du tout soignés (Pas de housse de couette, juste un drap, le sèche cheveux à disposition est à moitié fondu, la télécommande est rafistolée au scotch, il n'y a que 2 ampoules au lustre où il en faudrait 6, le coffre n'est pas fixé au mur...) Et pour couronner le tout, nous n'avons pas pu laisser notre valise après avoir libéré la chambre et avant de prendre l'avion : il n'y a personne sur place et aucun local n'a été prévu pour ce service. Bref, NON, ce lieu ne vaut ABSOLUMENT PAS le prix que j'ai payé. Mon conseil : à éviter.

Location of bed and breakfast is OK, but price...

Posted Oct 7, 2013
Pros: Location
Cons: All the rest...breakfast, staff, cleanness, illumination, furniture, etc...
Location: Close to Piazza Navona and to the storic center of Rome...only convenience...
...and all the rest is terrible. It is a little bit sinister, and, I insist, for the price you could find an equal best located b&b or two-star little hotel. I was dissapointed and do not advise anyone to go there, more if you travel alone!!!!! The bad thing is that it was well rated!!!!! Watch out...

Surprising In Rome

Posted Oct 4, 2013
What a find - fabulous location and incredibly fascinating building. We found this hotel had everything we needed to make our stay in Rome perfect. Marco was very responsive to our needs and very helpful. Street noise could be a problem for some but you can always close the windows and heh - this is Rome - and it never sleeps. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it highly.

Llego a Roma a eso de las 9 pm, no hay recepción, no hay ningún papel o informativo que explique, que debes anunciar tu llegada, se demoraron más 3 horas en llegar a a entregarme las llaves de la habitación. La ubicación inmejorable

Rigtig god beliggenhed!

Centraltbeliggende B&B i nærheden af Castel Sant'Angelo (Engelsborg), Vatikanet og Piazza Navone, hvorfra Pantheon er et smut i nærheden. De små gader omkring Piazza Navone byder på mange hyggelige restauranter. Pizzariaet, der ligger lige ved siden af opgangen til lejlighedsbygningen (hotellet/B&B består af en lejlighed med masser af værelse, hvor hvert værelse har tilknyttet badeværelse), er ikke værd at besøge, deres pizzaer er meget hårde. Morgenmaden hos Surprising in Rome er ikke noget at råbe hurra over, men der er fælles køleskab i gangen, så det er muligt at købe noget selv og opbevare det i køleskabet.

Molto comodo per girare a piedi

Posted Aug 1, 2013 on Hotels
In linea di massima sarebbe potuto essere maggiormente pulito e un po' più "gradevole" come aspetto della camera (trovarsi una parete attrezzata a cucina di fianco al letto non è proprio il massimo). C'era la possibilità di fare la colazione nella struttura ma mancava fisicamente il posto dove consumarla a meno di portarsi il cibo in camera. Ad ogni modo, l'importo richiesto e il grosso vantaggio di trovarsi a 5 minuti a piedi da Castel Sant'Angelo hanno reso più agevole il soggiorno.

Excellent stay in Surprising in Rome

Posted Jul 23, 2013
Pros: Really close to the sites, right beside the bus stop, beautifully furnished and spacious room, and the staff were all lovely and very helpful!
Location: Very close to the Colosseum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and most of the sites.
Surprising in Rome was excellent! The room was brilliant, and we thought we were getting a room with a separate bathroom but we had an ensuite. Our double room was a great size and was beautifully furnished and decorated. The staff were all absolutely lovely and had we actually made it on time and not been delayed, they would have been there waiting to let us in and show us to our rooms. They got there as soon as they could when we contacted them to let us in. They were very helpful and just generally very nice people. My boyfriend and I plan to go back to Rome someday and we'll definitely stay in Surprising in Rome again, it was great and within a short walking distance of the Colosseum, The Pantheon and the Trevi Fountain, and there was a bus stop right outside which had regular buses running to the Termini train station.
