This one is really nice and homely accommodation. The rooms are huge and everything was really clean. Breakfast was on a self service base but for me, I prefer that instead being served. Very nice little b&b; Better than any expectations!

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here for 6 nights last year. For the price I could not fault it, our hostess was lovely and welcoming! Everyday when we came back to the room after touring around Rome the room was spotlessly clean and our host had left little treats such as croissants etc which was a really nice gesture! Yes...

I always use trip advisor to pick my hotels and almost everytime has been on the mark, but I must say I thought I was at the wrong hotel! Our welcome was fine, nothing exceptional. The location was fine for us because we like to walk, the room was large enough and the bed was good, but other than that... More

This nice little (only three rooms) B&B is located in a very nice area with many cafes and restaurants, and it's not far from both Villa Borghese and the city center. The bus is also near by, so the location is very good. Right across the street from the hotel there is a cafe called Tribeca, they have a basic... More

L'Arca is a great value. The welcome is warm. The bed is comfortable. The hosts graciously share their knowledge of their city and how to navigate it.

i would recommend this B&B to any of my friends. if one day, you get to stay in l'Arca, you'll get a warm welcome! if you want to, the ladies of the reception can arrange a personal pick-up service from the airport, which is very comfortable and even cheaper than a regular taxi. the rooms @ l'Arca are very spatious...

Enjoyed the stay to the max. Daniela and Chiara are very very welcoming and helpful. Rooms and bathrooms are clean and tidy. Quite in the central of Rome and can easily be reached. Breakfast is great, and you have all the freedom and comfort to use the kitchen at any time :) Will recommend to everyone....

“The last room at the end of the corridor has a bathroom which is more "private" than the others, since you don't have to walk through the kitchen to get to it. All rooms are very clean and spacious.”
