We came here 4 years ago and were very impressed. It was basic but safe, reliable and clean and very close to the city. It changed ownership a year ago and the main issue because of which we only rate it a 3 now is that it's not a B&B anymore as they offer no breakfast. The last day we were moved to another room because they were in a rush to start some kind of works on the first room we had. Otherwise we had a very relaxing time. The bed was comfortable and the place clean. Our shampoo was not replenished until the last day when we were moved and the TV was minuscule.

Basic accommodation, no luxury, but clean and serves its purpose perfectly. If you're on a budget trip or if the hotel is just a place for sleep over for you, it's absolutely sufficient. It is about 15 minutes walk from Termini train station, so from Fiumicino Airport you can go by train to Termini and then walk. It takes about 30 minutes to walk to the city centre. Very nice cafeterias just around the corner.

We were staying in room 1 for 4 nights and the place was exactly what we needed. Close to the city and attractions and a reasonable price. There were two shared bathrooms for us to use, which we knew of before - it’s a bit of a hassle shlepping your things back and forth. The wifi was a bit spotty, and our bed was made each day. The bed was comfortable, but sheets were not changed. Towels were replaced when asked (or when you left them on the floor). There was a mini-fridge which worked well. If you’re looking for luxury - this would not be the place. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful when we asked for advice/directions. The main desk is apart from the hallway making interactions with them minimal. Again, this place did the job!

It's unusual hotel with often no staff at reception and you're given a set of keys for not only for your room but also for the main door. Breakfast is extra 2.50 Euro PP & they give a voucher which you take to a local Cafe, The 'hotel' is on 2nd floor, so you can't have a ground floor room.

The hotel is in a good location and is great value for money particularly during summer when prices spike heaps. The room was spacious and clean, however it is very warm and there is only a ceiling fan. Staff are friendly, although English isn't great but that isn't an issue! Overall, you can't really go wrong here and would recommend to anyone

Stayed here for four nights with my partner with the shared bathroom option. We were on the same floor as reception, but it seems like there were rooms on upper levels and connecting rooms. The rooms are basic, but clean. Would have been nice to have a/c but the fan and sleeping with the window (no screen) open suited us just fine. Location was great! Walking distance to basically everything as long you wear sneakers! We took the metro to Vatican City which was a 6 min train ride and 10 min walk from hotel. Although called a B&B, breakfast was not included in the room price nor available for a fee during our stay. There is a cafe two doors down on the corner (to the right if you are leaving) which was super tasty and reasonably priced! 2 euros for an espresso and brioche or 2.50 for an Americano and brioche. Went there every morning! My only compliants are with the bathroom and wifi. The shared washrooms were clean, but the showers did not drain properly so you had to stop your shower in order to prevent the water from flooding over. The wifi is free, but cut out frequently in our room (number 1). It was difficult to check in for flights, map out transit/walking, etc. We found that it had a stronger signal in the corner of the room towards the end of our stay so it could have just been that one room.

Stayed here for three nights at the beginning of may in room 5 with the private bathroom. The good: Before we arrived the hotel staff emailed us to ask when we were arriving to ensure they were there when we arrived which was a nice touch On arrival staff were really friendly and happy to help. The room was fairly clean and basic but that's all we wanted. The wifi was really reliable as well which was good and there was a fan in the room which was good for the hotter days! The location was fantastic for the price we paid, we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to visit. The bad: The noise! I know this is something the hotel probably cannot help but this really did affect my visit. Our room was right beside reception and the walls were very thin so we could hear everything in the hall way. One night a couple arrived who had not read the email previously sent to them by the hotel that the reception is only open until 10pm and to email them an arrival time so were having to hang around outside our room for hours (AND TRIED TO GET IN TO OUR ROOM!) However, I am aware this is not the hotels fault but if you are a light sleeper I would advise bringing ear plugs if in this room. There was also some building work outside (i presume, it was banging noises) which started at 5am on one of the days. Again, not to do with the hotel but did affect my sleep. Overall, I really enjoyed my stay however if you are a light sleeper I would advise bringing earplugs to prevent the noise.

Stayed here for our 25th wedding anniversary. The room was a good size, very clean with private bathroom and a fridge. We stayed 6 nights and the room was cleaned each day. Lovely very helpful family who gave us lots of local knowledge and discount of local restaurants. Great tips on how to find our way around the attractions. 10 min from main metro and everything within walking distance.

We stayed here from the 1st to 6th September. The reception is on the second floor and our room was on the fourth floor. Luckily there was a lift, however it was tiny and old fashioned and would not be ideal for anyone who is claustrophobic. On arrival we were asked to pay Rome City Tax, which we were not aware of before we arrived, so it's important to put some money aside before you arrive in order to cover this cost so you are not left short of funds. We were also given maps of the city before being shown to our room. The room was large with a double and single bed, a wardrobe, fridge and tv. Our bathroom was separate and at the other end of the corridor, however we did not have to share this with anyone so it wasn't a huge problem. Just around the corner from the B&B is a little wine bar which we visited quite a few times. It was nice to sit on the outside with a glass of wine and watch the world go by. In terms of location, this B&B was ideal. Ten minute walk to the Trevi Fountain and Spanish steps. It was only a five minute walk to the nearest metro station (which is how we travelled to get to the Vatican City). The room was basic, but it was clean and all that we really needed during out stay. The only downside was that as it was a guest house, there wasn't a lounge/bar or garden area to sit in, which the larger, more expensive hotels obviously have. If you are looking for something cheap, clean and in a good location, I would recommend this B&B. The hotel offer private airport pick up and drop off too, which can be arranged before you fly to Rome.

Giuseppe, the owner of the property, is a delightful person who's always ready to help - as is his whole family. What's more, he whips up the best cappuccino in Rome - and I'm not even exaggerating. We found the size & furnishings of our bedroom pretty ample - and the room was kept clean and neat at all times, as were all common areas. The location is also very convenient - not amidst the tourist masses, but within walking distance from pretty much any landmark. On the minus side, the bathrooms could definitely use an overhaul with hot water being just as elusive as the wi-fi signal. Also, the walls are pretty thin - which I guess is common for acommodation of this kind.
