Stefania was a wonderful host. Love the location, very close to The Vatican & great restaurants. A nice B&B very comfortable room - I actually liked it better than the other hotel where we stayed for the rest of our stay in Rome while touring with a tour group.

Small B&B right by the wall of the Vatican. Comfortable, clean. Nice breakfast and very nice owner. It allowed us to enjoy our stay in Rome at a nice accommodation for a comparatively reasonable price. We'll go back if/when we go back to Rome!

My husband and I stayed here in 2015 and our stay was fabulous. It was our first time in Italy, and the owner made us feel welcome and was very helpful in assisting us getting around the city and gave great advice about the metro and stores in the area. Her English is excellent and she patiently listened to our...

Lidia and Stephania were very helpful, friendly and efficient with all our enquiries before we arrived and whilst we were there .They organised a taxi from the airport for us and directed us to several...

This is a perfectly located 6 room-boutique hotel. It's right next to the Vatican Museum (50 metres away - if I have to approximate) and really close to the subway - 5-10 minutes walk. We were accommodated in a room with not such a great view (a construction site) at first (however, the room itself was as nice as the...

We stayed here for 4 nights and found it very friendly, both Lydia and Stephania made us feel welcomed and helped us with any enquiries we had. The rooms were clean and the air conditioning was a God send. Our room was cleaned everyday. The breakfasts had a wide range of cheeses, bread and fruit, tea coffee and juice also....

This b&b is a great place just steps from the Vatican. We went with friends and had our own private adjoining rooms. It was lovely! Stefania is wonderful in every way - she accommodated all of our needs and provided guidance with booking the train to Florence. Breakfast was lovely and the common room and bedroom were very clean. We...

I stayed here with my daughter for her 20th birthday. It was small but lovely. I was a little concerned about check in as we were arriving late but I emailed in advance and got a reply the next day. Although check in was closed they gave me instructions to get into the hotel and the room. (It is not...

Sadly we only spent one night at this wonderful little hotel. It was pretty hard to find as the only sign it had was a small brass plaque next to the entrance door. The rooms are on the 3rd floor which can be accessed by a tiny elevator. Lydia greeted us with a comprehensive briefing on how to see the...
