Lovely clean B&B, fab breakfast, owners really friendly, giving out lot's of local, good advise. Walk able to most of the attractions, Told us how to use the Metro (5mins away) Quiet to sleep, ready for another day
Everything are excellent such as room, breakfast, location, hospitality and reasonable price. Also it has supportive staffs. You can access to termini terminal with 10 minutes by walk and you are able to go to supermarket. Metro and bus station are in front of hotel.
We stayed for 3 nights in this small family run hotel. The host was very helpful and friendly. He also made a fabulous breakfast with plenty of proper coffee. Hotel is about 10min walk away from train station, few mins from metro and about 15mins to coliseum. Our room was very spacious and clean. It had very good noise protection from outside, there was some noise from neighbors being it a big house but host provides ear plugs for this matter.
The owners treated us like family members, they were always available to help, even with travelling to and from airport. Our room was large and with heater and AC and it was cleaned daily. No outside view from room. Breakfast was good and had variety of options. Guesthouse is exactly in front of Metro station and a nice garden just opposite the guesthouse. Guesthouse is surrounded by shops and also pharmacy and food shops.
A Casa di Mei occupies a large section of an old and quiet building on Piazza Vittorio Emanuele, a fifteen-minute walk from Termini station where the Leonardo train from Fiumicino airport and the shuttle buses from Ciampino airport terminate, and just across the road from Vittorio Emanuele metro station, and also a short walk from central Rome's main tourist attractions the Colosseum and the Forum. Rooms are spotlessly clean, and well secluded from the noise of the city. Danilo and Cristina are the most caring and attentive hosts that one could imagine: My wife and I and our four-year-old son arrived on an evening flight into Fiumicino where baggage reclaim took a long time, and being aware of our plan to take the Leonardo train to Termini, Danilo waited at the front door to be certain that we arrived safely. The next morning he walked downstairs with me to explain the quirks of the three keys, ensuring that I understood how to jiggle and pull the front door key whilst turning it. We never had any trouble with the wifi, even when our son was watching YouTube videos. The breakfast buffet, in a cosy space just outside the small kitchen, included the usual continental meats, cheeses and yoghurt and also nuts, omelette, and hard-boiled eggs, and good coffee. Whenever I wanted something else, Danilo took care to provide it- for instance on our first morning I asked whether there were cream for the coffee, then on all subsequent mornings it appeared unbidden. Termini is a working-class neighbourhood which means that the food is excellent. In recent years Bangladeshis have settled here in large numbers; the chaat that they sell on the street rivals the taste of that that I've tasted in Kolkata. I enjoyed speaking bangla with a Bangladeshi couple as their daughter and my son played in a nearby park. If you like genuine hospitality in a multicultural context, then this hotel and this neighbourhood are for you. Of course this is Rome, and Termini in particular, and Piazza Vittorio Emanuele especially: You will pass many homeless people sleeping on the street and in the park opposite, amid smells of urine and excrement. All of that stops at the door of the guest house, but there's no way to avoid it when you're coming and going. If you can't tolerate this, then don't stay in this part of Rome. The only slight issue with the room itself was that the water pressure wasn't quite enough when we and our neighbour happened to be using our showers simultaneously- a very minor issue!
I initially chose A Casa di Mei due to its close proximity to the train station but it's got so much more going for it. There is a Metro station entrance one minute's walk away which puts your in easy reach of lots of sights. It is about 5 minute's walk from Santa Marie Maggiore and the many bars and restaurants around it. I had read one or two reviews that mentioned that the area was intimidating, especially at night so I was a little apprehensive but this quickly passed. I can assure you that there is nothing wrong with the area. You will find many of Rome's immigrants around the park but they are not loud and not once were we approached or made to feel uncomfortable or threatened, even after midnight. The hosts, Danilo and Cristina are fantastic. We were welcomed and shown a map of all the sites and Metro stations. Each morning they would serve a continental breakfast in the corridor. There are 5 tables but we only ever saw another two couples. I really enjoyed the food. Coffee was freshly made to my order and each morning Danilo made fresh omelettes. There's the usual cheese, meat, bread, juice etc. Our room was clean and tidied each day as was the bathroom. A quick point however, we ended up with a private but separate bathroom which meant we had to walk through the breakfast area. I was not aware I had booked such a room but it was not an issue really. It's just something to be aware of when you book. The wifi is good and there is a small outdoor smoking area so you don't need to go right outside. There was even little candles and incense sticks. Staying here was a pleasure and great for the price. Danilo was happy to print off some tickets for me on his computer and even willing to phone my Venice hotel after I had checked out. Thank you for a lovely stay.
I can highly recommend A Casa di Mei. It is a warm welcoming nice place with the feeling to be at home at Danilo and Cristina. Danilo are very helpful and warm-hearted host! We arrived late to the Rome Airport and Danilo had time and offerered transfer for us from the Airport to his B&B, Thanks a lot! A Casa di Mei are located within walking distance to Colloseum and also Piazza Navona, Fontana di Trevi and Trastevere. Danilo recommended a nice Roman restaurant for evening meal. This B&B are located on very near walking distance from the train-station, good ! Next time in Rome we will stay at A Casa di Mei
This is a very good place to stay if you're looking for something simple and affordable. It's not too far from the train station and very close to the Metro, which was great for exploring other parts of the city. As for some comments people made about Piazza Vittorio Emanuele, I wouldn't say it's filled with criminals or unsafe. Sure it might have "interesting" characters, but that's typical for parks in big cities anywhere. Since we are from a big city ourselves we were completely fine with it and not in for a shock. The hosts were very kind and welcoming. The included continental breakfast was much appreciated. Our room and bathroom were very clean. If you can get a room with the en suite (dedicated in-room bathroom), go for it. We opted for the detached private bathroom, which was okay but requires some additional planning if you bring a lot of stuff with you.
It was a pleasure staying in this place, the owners were so lovely and welcoming and gave us all the information we needed, very attentive throughout our stay. The room was perfect for what we needed, just a comfy place to sleep and get ready. Breakfast was nice, our room was cleaned daily with fresh towels etc. The only possible negative is that the walls are quite thin so sometimes a bit of noise would seep through but luckily we had very quiet neighbours so was never a problem. Completely disagree with comments regarding the area being unsafe. Rome is littered with migrants and homeless people no matter where you go, it’s the same with any city I have been to you just need to keep your wits about you, we were never pestered. The metro is so close it’s really handy and also close to the coach drop offs which made it cheap to get to/from the airport. Such good value for money, Danilo & Christina made our perfect stay in Rome just that little bit better and I couldn’t recommend this place enough.
A great choice for travelers who want to see Rome and do not overpay. Excellent location, good living conditions and a very friendly host. Breakfast is varied and fresh. The only thing that could not be ok - pillows
- Walking distance to Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore and Teatro dell'Opera di Roma
- Free WiFi in rooms and public areas
- Airport shuttle (fees apply)
