This was not my first and definitely not my last time at this place. If you want to feel yourself at home in Rome, this is the right place for you. Very clean rooms as always, and the location is unbeatable, just as the home-made plum jam :)

I stayed here for 5 nights while working close to the Vatican. The location is excellent, there are mini supermarkets, shops, restaurants and food outlets all within a few block radius. The Vatican is 5 mins walk away and the metro station is at the end of the street (via Ottaviano) which is handy to get into central Rome (Trevi...

Amazing location, one of the best prices I've ever seen in Rome, and a proprietor who treats you like mom would (coffee in the room? No, qui en la cucina (here in the kitchen). No dirty suitcase on the bed!). Gelsomina gave us complete directions on how to get in, get out, get around, and get breakfast. She speaks very...

So far the best B&B in Rome I've stayed at. Perfect location, everything is very clean, and the host lady is very friendly. Much better than a 5 star hotel if you want to experience the real life of Roman people.

A fabulous place to stay. The most caring and lovely lady in charge. Love to signora ! Strictly clean & and ultimate decent. Perfect location. If you cannot share bathroom with some few strangers, be unlucky to proceed further.

When we asked for money back sais no and offered another bigger room but we said that if she won't give us money back we will call police! It helped. Only advantage is that all flat is really clean.

Great location, next to S. Peter basil with easy access to the city center and shopping area. Even though there's no private bathroom in the room, we didn't find any inconvenience since the shared bathroom was always perfectly clean. This cosy B&B with the courtesy of "signora Gelsomina" made our stay an excellent experience, I definitely recommend it! Aline, Zurich

The Gelsomina B&B is a wonderful and comfortable place to stay. Like most of the B&Bs in Rome it is a huge, renovated appartment in an old building. It's owned by a nice elderly lady who keeps her property impeccably clean. The floor shines, bed linen are crisp and fresh, bathroom elegant and aired. We shared the bathroom with a...

Staying in Prati

Neighbourhood Profile
Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
