Recent guest reviews

Was given room 105. I saw some reviews complaining about where it was or how to get in, i can understand how this could be an issue. Was given a code to the safe to retrieve my key when we arrive and worked fine but when i was leaving i lost the code and couldn't put it back. Called twice the emergency that it says on the door but at 4pm already nobody there and no answer. Now let me describe the experience. We arrived and the smell was unbearable plus even though overall clean if you looked closely it wasn't. I was duty manager in a hotel and maybe it was more obvious than for others. We had to sleep in October with the window open and was cold. Wanting to leave the next day for another hotel i talked in the morning to the receptionist who apologized was very helpful and did something since there on it was noticeable but bearable. When going to have breakfast we were greated to a poor option breakfast with basically packaged toast (no toaster) a cake and some croissant that were fresh one day and not so much the next. The bowls for the cereal worn and made of plastic. No salty option for a sandwich. This definitely needs improvement even for a b&b bread a toaster and some ham and cheese costs nothing and makes all the difference. Replacing those bowls also costs about 10 euros in ikea. The overall installation? Floors that suddenly sink and showers that don't quite regular temperature. Was assured that floor would be renovated in november. Hope its true cause it needs it. My room had a decent design even though one door had 3 locks (makes you wonder) and the other was obviously forced at some point in time. If it wasn't for a friendly receptionist who really looked concerned about it all this 3/5 would have been way worst. Sorry but it has to be said.

I visited this place in September 2015 with my girlfriend. It was found random when surfing the Internet. It is located in the center of Rome 10' away from Termini station. The breakfast was quite nice with many typical Italian choices. The girls in the small reception very polite. There room was comfortable, very clean and modern. I enjoyed staying there and I definitely recommend it.

Location is great. Close to the train station. Shops are close by. The place looks great. It has have had a makeover in 14'. Bed is soft, and so Is the pillow. Breakfast is nothing to brag about. They don't serve fresh bread. Only some DRY premade toast bread? Remember to drink water with it. Their crossaints are really bad. Dry and taste of lemon. And they put sugar powder on them.. Anyways this is not a hotel. So we could probably revisit, if we come back to Rome.

I traveled with my boyfriend for four days to Rome, and the hotel was a very good choice. The neighborhood is very nice with many restaurants and cafés. However, the hotel is located in a calm street, so you can easily relax and sleep after a long day in Rome. A further advantage is the closeness to the central bus and train station "termini", from which you can get to all important places and to the airport CIA. The service in the hotel was excellent. We had a few requests regarding our luggage and the room temperature which all had been considered without any problems. The room and the bathroom were clean, the bed comfortable and especially the shower was very nice and big. The breakfast was fine for the prize. All in all I would strongly recommend the Hotel.

I spend 4 nights with my girlfriend and after the experience, I can just say it has been the greatest choice ai have done in Rome. The rooms are really big, including modern shower, toilet and safety box. I can say the rooms are probably better than all hotel rooms of 4* or 5* in Rome. Breakfast is okey but enough and plenty things to eat. You can have as much expresso, latte machiatos and capuccinos as you want along the day, as the breakfast room is opened all day long, which we used for even having dinner there. The attention was wonderful and everything we asked for was resolved and answered. The only contra was that sometimes you could here noise from the corridor. I would highly recommend this hotel-B&B to anyone visiting Rome, and I will for sure stay here if I visit Rome again. You have 5*rooms and quality for really cheap prices.

Would definitely stay here again. Canadian couple traveling to europe. We stayed here 3 nights and would highly recommend it. It was fresh. . clean. .and modern. The staff were very helpful during our stay!

A good clean hotel 5-10 minute walk from the Roma Railway Station. The rooms were a good size and they were well maintained. The breakfast was simple but was enough to get you started on exploring all the city has to offer. The shower in the room was a great size and had good water pressure.

I've booked for a romantic weekend in Rome and the owner offered us a bottle of Prosecco. Check-in was seamless even at late hours and without a receptionist. Suites are big, bed is very comfortable, A/C works fine, shower is good and all is well designed and decorated. The whole hotel seems to be re-designed and looks new. Breakfast offers many choices including Lavazza coffee and its location is perfect, quiet but close to bars and nightlife as well as train station. We will definitely come back!

As other reviewer say, this B&B can be found in the 5th floor of Prischilla Hotel. The room is clean and quiet for us. Breakfast buffet is simple one including croissant, yogurt, etc. I liked the complementary espresso machine. Disappointing aspects were; baggage leave availability was limited (the staff said pick up time had to be no later than noon because she will leave at the time and no replacement will come.); the staff can't communicate in English. The elevator can't work unless the internal door is closed. If you find the elevator doesn't work, you may go to the floor where it locate and use it after closing the internal door. We stayed there 3 nights in June 2015. All the stay in Rome is subject to city tax, which was 3.5EUR per person per night.

First off, some of the reviews here for this hotel seem fake, i.e. they seem to have been written favorably by friends or others. It's easy to spot them. This B&B is hidden 5 floors up within the entrance of hotel Priscilla. The old elevator might work or you could take the stairs. The hotel is staffed during 07,30 to 17,30, so make sure you don't loose your keycard. We first recieved room no 102. Beware if you get room 102 you might be in for some unpleasant surprises, as the room doesn't have a proper doorlock, meaning that if you (or someone else) pushes hard enough the door will open easily. We pointed this out to the staff on our first day and they said they would fix it immediately. I'm betting It's probably not fixed yet. After having complained about this for 2 consecutive days they moved us to room 106 which has a working door lock. I just thank my lucky star that nothing happened the first 2 days. There seems to be alot of noise from the street at night in all the rooms. You also get alot of noise from the hallway and other rooms. As for interiors and furnishing the B&B is fairly new, so all is good. The hotel is also clean. We easily slept over the breakfast which consists of coffee from a machine, ok though, and a croissant dipped in sugar. The location of this hotel is ok, but not good. The metro and Termini is around 15 minutes walk away. When in Rome you'll find yourself walking alot. I would recommend anyone visiting Rome to stay either close to a subway station or somewhere between the Vatican and Trastevere. The Wi-fi is ok. We won't be coming back to this B&B.
