Great place great people, very reaxing quiet even though in Rome, street parking only and hard to find a place but its all free lots of cafes around good food and good prices shops of all sorts near by. The owner is a very nice person and a good host she will help you find the right place for you to go.i would definitely be back here for a few days.

Upon my arrival to this B&B the owner was not at the hotel. Instead, she has “her assistant” who spoke not one single word of English. She knew I was from America and didn’t speak Italian. I had already confirmed the booking and paid online only to find out that she wanted me to pay again. The assistant then called the owner who told Me I needed to find a bank, get Euros, and come back and pay for something I had already paid online for. I had a very weird vibe about the whole situation and ended up leaving only to be harassed view WhatsApp regarding my return and paying again of Euros. Yes, I should her my bank statement with the charge. Do yourself a favor and never stay here!

This B&B should not have cost more than 35 euros and the 80 it charged is outrageous. Everything was done for the convenience of the owner such as getting the key to enter and not having breakfast ready at 8:30 when she said it would be ready. She arrived right at 8:30 and made a pot of coffee but no bread or anything to eat was available which is terrible if people want to get an early start for sightseeing. Decent enough room but not, not, not worth the money

I'm staying at Bamboo for the third time in past year. It's located up on Gianicolo, above Trastevere, in Monteverde. Very peaceful setting with clean and comfortable rooms. Last year when I was here, one received vouchers for coffee & pastry at nearby cafe; now a very nice continental breakfast (croissants; cereal; yogurt; juices; good strong coffee) is offered in house. The owner, Giada, is very friendly and ready to help. I can imagine that Bamboo might not feel right to folks who are new to Rome, or new to travel--a bit of self-reliance is called for. The rewards of staying here are palpable--a true local experience; access to fabulous, non-touristy restaurants (Giada has all sorts of recommendations here); tranquility; a pleasant terrace; very comfortable rooms, beds, and baths.

Excellent place to stay in Rome. Very clean and peaceful. Bus stop to the city center, Vatican, or to the colosseum, next to the place. Rome nightlife in Trastevere nearby. The owner was very helpful all the time, helping us with information about transportation as restaurant's near by.

We decided to book our stay at Bamboo after reading the great reviews. We travel a lot and like to stay in places that aren't right in the centre. We are good at getting around and as other reviews had mentioned how great Giarda was at offering advice on where to go etc thought that this place would be ideal. We couldn't have been more wrong! I had a few email exchanges with Giarda prior to booking and our visit so was really looking forward to not only our stay but our first visit to Rome. She arranged our airport transfer which was fine and on arrival was met by a very nice lady (don't know if she was Giarda)who unfortunately did not speak a word of English (don't get me wrong, we're not the sort of people who expects everyone to speak our language but after previous reviews was actually thinking that they might). We muddled through with lots of smiles and hand gestures. And was left with a set of 4 keys and 3 hand written pieces of paper to take to a cafe for breakfast. The following morning found the same lady cleaning the stairs and she showed us where to go. We received a drink and a pastry at a cafe 2 streets away. We stayed 3 nights and every morning was woken at 4.30am by the noise from other guests using the kitchen and breakfast room. (We never went in there as we didn't know whether we could) Our room was directly opposite! Our bathroom was also opposite and found it very uncomfortable trying to get past people stood outside our door drinking coffee. We felt a little let down as our visit did not seem to live up to that of others who have stayed before us. People talked about their experiences but our stay was nothing like that. There was no daily housekeeping and our bathroom smelt awful if the window was closed.We felt isolated, and on the last morning on departure we just left our keys as we had no idea what to do!! This is the first place we have ever stayed in that didn't have any literature about the do's and dont's during your stay. There were no instructions on what to do in the event of an emergency or anything like that! All in all it marred our first visit to Rome and would definitely not stay at Bamboo again!! If you do stay request not to be put in the room opposite the kitchen!!

Like a home, clean, modern, great beds, fast wifi. Good for families, excelent breakfast. A bit far from center Rome but good public transportations. Good burgers/streetfood just a 15 meters from Bamboo. Giada is so nice, warm and welcoming. She helps you when you ask. We recommend this place! Suosittelemme lämpimästi paikkaa kaikille!

Its in a great location, 30min walk from the Vatican. Its great for people who don't mind doing you own cooking. It was much cheaper than a hotel, and the lady who helped us with everything was very friendly and accommodating. They stocked us with fresh towels every two days. The place was spacious, and very neat. kitchen, Clean bathroom, nice balcony with a great view of the city. Would not mind going back and staying here again.

Located in an area that is not inundated with tourism, my husband and I had a wonderful experience at this B&B. Our room had a balcony and was quite spacious. Our room was clean and comfortable. Bamboo is located very near to a train station which we used on several occasions, primarily to travel to St. Peter's in the Vatican area. It took approximately 3-5 minutes to arrive by train at St. Peter's and the station was only a few blocks to walk from the B&B. Our room had a private bathroom which was not located in the sleeping room itself, but it was down the hall. This was a new experience to me, but I liked this arrangement as the living area was very spacious, as was the bathroom, and we were not confined to only a specific space. It felt as though we were staying at a condominium more than a hotel which I enjoyed. There is a lovely common space available to be used, and the daily breakfast was quite delicious and filling. The owner/manager was very kind and also very helpful. There were several guests staying there while we were there, and the atmosphere was comfortable and quiet. There are several shops and restaurants in the area. We had a wonderful time!

Excellent place. Cool decor, simply and stylishly done. Great, helpful attentive staff. Had the 4 person room with a great balcony.Near the beautiful Villa Doria Pamphili park. Near the Janiculum hill with great views. It's a quieter neighbourhoods that closer to the historic centre or the centre it's self, but still good food and sights within walking distance. I was impressed.
