Loved the area and district which is a local area Testaccio. Liked our room overlooking the river. Very clean, ok breakfast, nice bathroom and helpful kind hosts. The only issue I had was the towels weren't changed once in the 6 nights we were there, which isn't good enough. Also didn't see anybody on Easter Monday which is a holiday in Rome, fair enough, but they didn't leave us anything for breakfast. No coffee no milk no cornetti or bread.
Super comfortable bed with plenty of extra blankets to deal with the oddly chilly weather. Great location and friendly staff. The shared common area and veranda are why I didn't give five stars. The communal aspect was not my favourite.
This place was wonderful. Clean rooms, good breakfast, great location. I booked the wrong day and they were very accommodating. Alessandro was sweet, helpful and speaks some English. It was in a nice neighborhood. My friend and I never felt unsafe.
Booked the original location with the welcoming Francesco we'd heard so much about. Federica emailed the day before to ask if we'd be happy to move to property in Via Morosini, 14 but unfortunately we didn't see the message. They'd organised our pickup from the airport so we were taken straight to the other property. It was nothing like the property we'd booked. We were told they'd move us because they thought it was a better location given we had a baby (more central to town/tourist attractions etc.). But for several reasons it wasn't. Our room (described as "spacious" in the email we saw later on) was tiny, and with the cot inside barely room to walk, nowhere for luggage and definitely no room for the pram. The two lifts you had to take up to the apartment were 'one person' and didn't fit the pram (parents who's babies sleep well in a pram will appreciate the negatives with this!). It was easy to hear the neighbours to the point that we could hear every movement of the person having a bath in the apartment above. There was also no balcony off the room (there was one off the common area), but wasn't much of an outlook in this location anyway. Antonio who met us was helpful and despite us being upset was very courteous about wanting to help. He connected us via phone with Federica who told us they'd have a room available for us at the original property for our second night if we wanted to move and to think about it overnight. The next morning however we saw our adjacent room which was several times the size of the one they'd given us. We can only assume they were actually overbooked rather than concerned about our family, so the insincerity around wanting to give us the best room for our family was what finalised our decision to leave. After our one night stay we asked us to pay for 4 of the 5 nights booked, but negotiated to paying for 3. Given the circumstances we were disappointed to be paying that, but reluctantly agreed, paid and moved on. The positive out of all of this was that Antonio was great in helping us find the Residenza Santa Maria where we spent one great night, and then the Residenza helped us find a spot at Hotel Trastevere for the rest of our stay (also great). Apparently we weren't the first to find ourselves in this scenario, so would say to just be cautious when booking that you get the property and room/facilities you need. The property we were at would definitely suit some - just not suited to families.
The room was sparse. The breakfast was sparse. Communication with the owner/manager/host/whoever-was-in-charge was sparse. Much to our surprise, the Munira B&B is located in an apartment building. The hallways were dark and based on what we could hear after we checked in carpeting is not required anywhere. The number of the apartment is on the directory outside the building but it didn’t say which floor it was on. And so finding the place required floor-to-floor exploration. No fun after a transatlantic flight and when the elevators can only hold one person and two large suitcases at a time. We arrived at 10:30 a.m. and after ringing the outside bell three times we were greeted by a cleaning woman who spoke no English. However our room was ready and we were allowed entry. The room was clean with a comfortable bed and brand new modern sink, toilet, bidet and shower. There was a small balcony with a view of the Tiber and the graffiti covered wall and dumpsters alongside it. There was not a comfortable chair in which to sit either in the room or the reception area. There was no one-way lock inside the room. The room locked with a type of lock that looked as if it could be easily picked. And the key to the room looked like the type of skeleton key that could be purchased at any novelty store. We did not feel as if our belongings were particularly secure when we left the room, partially because there was no manager on site and partially because the balcony we shared with the guests in the next room was separated only by a thin decorative wooden fence held in place with plastic ties. I went out after dropping off my bags and when I returned at about 4:30 p.m. there was a manager on the premises who informed us that breakfast was not served in the apartment itself but that we needed to walk down to the corner where we could eat at the buffet in a fitness club. There was then no manager on the premises until 9:00 a.m. the following morning. No conspicuously-posted emergency contact information/procedure anywhere in sight. No printed information regarding who to contact in the event of a problem. The buffet consisted of a few juices, apples and oranges, a few pastries and rolls, jam, butter yogurt and a few cereals. No eggs, meat or cheese. Perhaps this type of B&B is common in Europe but I don’t think a B&B like this would last long in the US.
Due to the global note of this b&b we decided to book for 4 nights. Francesco the former manager tried to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We stayed in the room "Roma e" (the orange coloured room). During our stay we had the possibility to see the other rooms. Our disappointment was perfect as our room was nothing like the others. First the light problem. It was impossible to read or write at night in our room. We are used to write down what we visited and our impressions. This time it was just not possible. In all rooms was a kettle. Not in our one. Finally after two nights we also got one. Second, as it is a former flat transformed into b&b the walls are less than soundproof. Third, no cleaning service. After 4 nights in such a small room you can imagine how it looked like. Nevertheless the location is quite good. Easy ride by tram to the center. The breakfast was ok for Roma (coffee and croissant). Francesco is a charm. We are still in contact with him!
Yes, this was one of the most charming experience we ( me and my family) had this decade; This guy, Francesco, is a very good host; The B&B is near the train station ( you reach the apartment in no more than 7-8 minutes, ) and other ( tram, buses) station, quite on the side of Tevere river ( Tibru /Tiber- in other languages); the apartment is of 4 rooms + some spaces to have a meal - each room have it own bath which is in an outstanding italian design style shape and the rooms...as you may see; It`s worth any penny we paid and we don`t regret the choice; You have close transportation to all of Rome`s attractions and yet- you`ll pay less than 70 % of the other offers on the same range; I`m not saying its cheap but if you dont have budget you may take a nap under the bridge ( Rome is expensive by itself) :-); I definitely recommend this, at least as long as Francesco will be your host;
It was an amazing experience! Stayed at the Munira B&B for 4 nights, Francesco was a great host, telling us where to visit and how to make most of our holiday. It's a quite place and greatly situated in the heart of Trastevere. Transport only 5 minutes away from the B&B. Rooms are very clean. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you Francesco! Mirela & Ricardo
We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed it very much. Francesco our host was very caring, picked us up at the train station Trastevere, gave us excellent recommendations and showed us around his favorite places the last day. Thank you so much Franesco - we loved to stay in Munira - the rooms are very pretty, all new and clean!!! All the best from Antje and Lasse
Thanks for everything, Francesco. We had a great stay at your B&B. We had absolutely nothing to complain about. We will certainly recommend your place tripo other people than are planning a trip to Rome.
