Unfortunately staying at this B&B was a big regret for us in Rome. Prior to arriving to the place, we had several email conversations about room upgrades and city tax, which were all fine, however the ordeal which happened, as below, was never mentioned. Our flight arrived in the evening and upon arriving at the place, we were greeted by a bus boy who was to let us in rather than the owners or any formal reception. After giving us the keys etc, we were demanded to pay him an extra surcharge for his time to check in. Not happy to pay this, we asked to speak to the owners as to why there was an extra surcharge and in short, we were recipient of 15 minutes worth of financial demands and blackmail.The conclusion point was a catch-22 situation because the owners refused to refund us any money after taking up their suggestion of finding alternate accommodation, and also for the bus boy to leave. In addition, the place was not anything like the photos and the kitchen was very unclean. The breakfast offered are bread and rolls with a few tea bags and the B&B is basically a few rooms within a residential unit. For a romantic trip away, this was a real disappointment and really put a huge dampener on our entire stay. Positives, if any: good location to town and via appia way, good storage in room
We booked a 2-bedroom apartment, with a kitchen and bathroom. We kind of got this, but were a bit confused as to why we needed locks on the bedroom doors until we realised that 'our' kitchen was in fact a communal kitchen which would and could be accessed via 'our' front door by people staying in other rooms in the building. Not exactly what we expected! The lady who ran the place, as other reviewers have said, was very pleasant and helpful. Bread was provided for us to make breakfast, together with coffee pods to use in the coffee maker (one per person per day). On Easter Sunday she brought us an Easter cake, which was very kind of her. There was a lot of noise on our first night from the bar at the front of the building. Also, the door to the building slammed loudly every time anyone came in or out, so we in the bedroom next to the front door were constantly woken/disturbed by this. The beds were very comfortable and the first showers hot - obviously with 4 people those having the later showers had luke-warm water. The location was good, but I wouldn't really recommend because we expected an apartment to ourselves and didn't get that. There is also no signage, so it's difficult to find the place.
First off, this isnt a standard b&b had more or a hostel feel to it. The b&b is actually located within a first floor apartment within a residential building which we found quite strange. The rooms were off a communal kitchen area. The lady who greeted us was lovely and welcoming showing us to our room. Now this place advertises as a b&b but even she said herself that they dont do breakfast. Then she informed us we could only have one night in one particular room and then go into another room for the remainder of are stay as friends were coming to stay they all wanted to be together. Again strange but she showed us where we would be staying which was a room within a residential apartment across the hall and didnt seem have any connection to the original "b&b". I was happy with the other room but again found it strange. There were just some biscuits and tea and coffee provided in a basket. The room and bathroom were clean. The furniture was old but had a vintagy feel about it. I would not use the kettle though as they are filthy and full of limescale. I opened the kettle and even the water inside had gone cloudy it was that bad. Beds were comfortable but the walls were paper thin and could hear not only the other guests but the neighbours in the apartment building. Also were disturbed a lot by guests using the communal area and general coming and going, again not helped with walls being paper thin. As a result we didnt sleep very well unfortunately. The location is superb though, the colosseum is a short walk away as well as the forum, palatine hill and the site of the old Circus Maximus. There is an underground system with a stop at the end of the road should you wish to use it. You can also catch one of the numerous hop on, hop off buses from the colosseum or circus maximus which takes you to all the key sites in Rome. All in all I wouldn't stay again due to reasons stated, however the location is very favourable. It was indeed just somewhere to lay our head as we were out all day everyday but it's wasnt as advertised and we didnt sleep well.
We stayed here 3 nights this month, breakfast was 2 biscuits and 1 tea bag+/1 coffee! Very old furniture, no heating in the bathroom, moldy walls, at least it was warm outside so it was not very cold in the room. This is my worst b&b experience! Try to avoid this place
Great location and facilities. Orlando couldn't have been more helpful. He was always there if we needed him. The B&B is so close to all the major attractions and there are plenty of restaurants around to choose from. Highly recommended!
I spend only one night at this conveniently located b&b in Rome. When in Rome I use to go in the spanish stairs nearby but this time I had a few meetings at F.A.O. headquarter. The location was therefore perfect for. Pretty surpisingly to me the room was very cold and the heater was off. It took a few hours to make the room comfortable and frankly speaking it has disappointed me. Anyway I would rate this B&b in the average and maybe I'll come back in the future...of course double checking in advance the temperature of the room
Having reserved and paid in advance, the owner called the night before we arrived to say we would have to be moved to another B&B. Upon arrival, she said there had been a leak in the bathroom, she had us taken to a B&B a couple of kilometers away, in the cheerful, working-class area of Ostiense. Not the Aventino, but we rolled with it and had a good time. Moving back to her B&B for the third night, oops, the clients had just checked out. So it was a clever move on her part, double-booking and sending us off to a cheaper pensione, pocketing the difference. Circo Maximo, indeed.
Stayed here 3 nights at the end of september... Lovely little b&b, comfortable temperature, clean little bathroom. Owner made an effort to chat over breakfast... Breakfast wasn't much of a selection but enough to get you going for the day!.. Enjoyed our stay!
Superb location for a good price. We would have preferred a double bed room which looked very nice, however were put in a twin room which was a little less comfortable. That said the bathroom was very nice! We wanted to pay with card however we had to pay in cash, and a little more than what was on the booking website due to the apparent wrong price in tourist tax. Breakfast was good, with yoghurts, toast, tea and coffee.
This hotel, even though hard to find, is perfect for anyone on a budget. The price is very reasonable, the rooms are clean and cozy, the bathroom is nice. The location is sublime: 5 minutes walk to the the Palatine Hill and Coliseum and near the metro and trams. The breakfast is really good too. Anyways, I highly recommend!!
