Alessandro kindly waited up for us when our flight was late, and was very helpful during our stay. The breakfasts were excellent. The whole place was very clean... More

We stayed for 5 nights - just perfect. Location very close to s.paolo/pyramid metro for visiting sights, - it takes 10-15 mins max and just 2 stops from the colloseum. The train station for getting to and from airport is just behind the metro. Taxi's back to the b&b from visiting sights/nights out cost us no more than 10 euros.... More

We have just stayed here for three nights and it was exactly the sort of place we wanted. The room was very clean and tidy, so was the bathroom and the little terrace was just perfect.

The room was very comfortable, spotless and even included a lovely terrace where we enjoyed breakfast each morning. Breakfast was generous and included fresh orange juice and other fruit, meats and cheese, bread and pastries, and... More

This was a good B&B in Rome. The host was wonderful and very helpful with getting around. This B&B is out of the way as far as walking distance but public transportation is right across the street which was very convient.

We stayed at the Althea Inn from Sept. 26th to the 30th. What a great place. Alessandro made our stay memorable. The rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast on the terasse was wonderful. You are also near the metro which makes it super convenient. If I could give it more stars I would.

Staying in Testaccio

Neighbourhood Profile
Testaccio
Put the house music on replay and you have Testaccio, an ancient Roman port and former working class neighbourhood where the bass is set to high almost every night of the week. Its collection of discoteche (nightclubs), street parties, and crowded restaurants give it its well-deserved party reputation. During the daytime, Testaccio is more easy listening than club hit, the area is full of locally owned small businesses and has one of the city's larger produce markets.
