Obelus B&B

Traveller (36)
Room & Suite (44)
Dining (15)
10 minutes walking from Colosseum, Forum Romanum and Palatinum. Obelus B&B is just on the side of Holy Stairs and the basilica of Saint John Lateran, the most ancient church in the world and the first house of the Pope. We are located in a multicultural area where you can find many pizzerias, ice cream shops and restaurants. In our neighborhood there is the famous "Via Sannio" street market with the cheapest prices in Rome. The tents and sidewalks along Via Sannio are alive with merchants selling clothes, shoes and accessories. You'll find everything from a designer fur coat or a cashmere sweater to a second hand nightgown or a vintage dress. Manzoni underground station is just right the corner and by the red line (Metro A) you can get anywhere.. The Vatican is the farthest of all tourist attractions and it is only 3 kilometers away from Obelus, yet it can be reached with the underground train and it is only 7 stops away (less than 10 minutes!!!) .

Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.

Obelus is a good value for the location. The staff were very nice and were okay with late checking-in. The room was clean and spacious. The breakfast was very good as well as the cappuchino! Another big plus is that the Colosseum is on 15 min walk.mi There is a busy road nearby

This was my fourth stay at the Obelus and I thoroughly enjoyed it again. The room is small but comfortable and the breakfast room is very pleasant with lovely photos of Rome on the walls. The young lady who served breakfast (and delicious cappuccinos) was extremely kind and

Obelus is a good value for the location. They arranged a pickup at the airport which was extremely helpful as it isn’t the easiest location to find at night. The location is convenient to a metro stop and within walking distance of major sites in Rome. Our room was clean and the

We stayed here in early February in a room for triple. It was very clean, quiet and comfortable. Every morning we started our day with a great breakfast of baked goods, meat cuts and fresh fruit juice along with coffee or tea choices. This was a great central location near

"double room"
"The shower water supplier needs to be fixed or changed to allow water inflow in the best way, and the bathroom window needs a cover as it is facing houses who can see through it if they are outside, also the sofa is not comfortable it needs to be changed"
"Ask for lower floors if you have heavy luggages."
"Room one has one double and two single beds."
"if you are a light sleeper and was given an appartment on the first floor, bring ear plugs. the garbage collector starts his day very early in the morning! or, ask for one in a higher floor. it did not bother us though."
US$51 - US$130 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
