Great area, close to the VaticanPosted Oct 15, 2017 on Orbitz
Overall a great experience. There was a little hiccup during our check-in since we had to do a late check-in. The "hotel" is more of a 3-bedroom apartment, each with their own private baths and a shared kitchen. Since we had a late check-in, we had a bit of trouble getting into the apartment complex, but once we called them, it was resolved pretty quickly. We stayed in the room with a double bed and 2 twins, and it was lovely. The place was clean, and had a large bathroom. The beds were relatively comfortable. Breakfast was also provided, mostly tea, coffee, bread, yogurt and fruits, so that was nice too. Paolo was also very friendly and provided a lot of recommendations on what to do nearby. This place seems to be more of a residential district, but there are a lot of nice restaurants and cafes nearby, and again, it is very close to the Vatican, and also within walking distance to the metro. All in all, it was the best place we've stayed in Europe so far, and I'll definitely recommend it to others.

Good base fo exploring Rome & VaticanPosted Sep 6, 2017
We were moved from the one booked though probably to a better location close to a small supermarket and the metro. the shower was cold most of the time but fixed promptly when we pointed this out. Helpful in letting us leave luggage there before being picked up for the airport. Could have been better at replacing loo rolls and cereals. A good base for exploring Rome with my wife and daughter.

Close to Vatican, shoppingPosted Aug 23, 2017
Pros: Our helpful host. Ten min. walk to Vatican, Restaurants. Full service grocery store, ATM, Metro 1 minute away. Strong WiFi, password protected. Clean.
Cons: "Breakfast" part of B&B was disappointing. Little selection: chocolate or plain cereal, unexciting bread, dreadful sweet buns. Add few English TV chan
Location: Vatican. Restaurants. Metro (subway). Short walk to all the tourist things close to the Vatican.
We had 2 days in Rome and wanted something not too expensive but a reasonable walking distance to the Vatican and access to tour busses, restaurants, etc. The place is in an apartment building. It is an apartment that was converted to 3 private suites (bedroom, full European bathroom) and a common area with kitchen and food storage areas. We were surprised at this format. Serendipitiously, we met a lovely Italian family on holiday who could speak English. Thanks to a great grocery store nearby, we were able to supplement the rather meagre selection of breakfast items, and enjoy a bottle of wine and some beer in our suite. Not much in the way of English TV channels but we were usually too tired after walking all day to care much. Our host, Paolo, spoke fluent English and was very helpful and gracious. Very trustworthy. Our suite was very clean and quiet, and boasted a nice balcony with table and chairs overlooking the interior courtyard shared by our building and two others. Very pleasant for breakfast and evening.

okPosted Aug 2, 2016 on Hotels
Wasn't what we expected, whilst the service provided was very good it wasn't in the location we thought and the room wasn't suitable for a family. We did have cause to complain in respect to ants and change of towels/ bedding and this was rectified at once so without any issues at all.

Great family vacation in Rome at ArchesPosted Jul 13, 2016
Pros: Prompt attention from the staff and owners, nice and clean, conveniently located for the Metro and Vatican, public water fountain right on the corner.
Cons: Some hooks or hangers in the bathroom for drying towels. Trash pick up is loud, but just turn on the AC at night
Location: turn right go a block and a half, turn R on Viale Angelico, 3 block south is the Ottaviano metro. Keep going 3 blocks to St Peter's
Fabio and Paulo arranged for a driver to pick us (2 adults, 2 kids 11 and 12 from the US) up at the airport and took us directly to the B&B (about 40 minute drive) . It's in a large apartment building and we were very early, so we left our bags with the building porter and wandered around the neighborhood. Do stop in at the little bar on the corner, drinks, snacks, light meals, a fabulous salad with tuna and nice staff who have some English - and a toilet. Do print a map of the area because it can be confusing and it's north of the tourist maps- and data and wifi are not reliable. We got into our room- it was the green room with a small balcony, 1 double and 2 twin beds. It isn't super fancy, but clean and very nice bathroom. Rooms have cable TV, (we could get BBC news) AC units, shutters and curtains. No dresser, but an open hanging unit. We got a tour of the place, there is a shared kitchen, in which you get one shelf in the fridge and one in a cupboard, which they supplied with milk, bread, yogurt, cereal, fruit, juice, coffee pods and pastries. There is a toaster and microwave. There is a computer in the common room and free wifi in your own room (but it can be very slow.) The few problems we encountered (a stuck window, running toilet) were attended to right away. We stayed for 9 days as a home base. Ottaviano Metro is 4 blocks away, all night bakery on Viale Angelico just N of metro, & Lemongrass Gelato. Last night big meal at Hosteria on the corner,

Short Break in RomePosted Jun 11, 2016
Great short break in Rome. Arches Relais was an ideal location. Ten minute walk from the Vatican. Restaurants very close by with underground/bus connections also nearby.

Nice bed and breakfast close to the VaticanPosted Jun 10, 2016
Very quaint neighborhood. Lots of restaurants close by. Easy walk to Vatican City. Clean, comfortable room. Very homey. Staff is nice with great attention to detail and quick to help.
Perfect for family of 4!Posted Apr 17, 2016 on Hotels
Hands down, great! Paolo and his team were awesome! They communicated quickly and clearly, even when we messed up our trim schedule, there was still someone to greet us. Very clean, hip, modern, and super comfortable. It felt like one big home. Kitchen was perfectly organized for the 3 units and stocked with delicious breakfast foods and coffee, tea, etc... Perfectly located next to Vatican and metro, yet far enough away from touristy areas. Paulo offered delicious local restaurants to eat at and the common computer and room were an A plus. We were very happy with our stay.
