Me and my friend stayed at the Ancient Rome B&B back in June for 4 nights. The whole experience was amazing, the family who run this B&B couldn't do enough for you and I'd encourage anyone to stay there. The location was perfect, literally a 10minute walk to the Colosseum and into the bustling centre. Charming hotel, lovely cozy rooms!...

I was pleasantly surprised with this charming bed and breakfast. I recently stayed 3 nights in a newly renovated room with private bath, closet, A/C, tv, and WiFi. The staff was so friendly and brought coffee, paninis, pastries, etc. to our room for breakfast. The location was great, in a safe but lively neighbourhood only a stone throw away from...

My husband and I stayed at Ancient Rome for 5 nights. This is a charming hotel in a beautiful area of Ancient Rome. It is about a 50 Euro cab ride from the airport and about a 15 minute walk from the main train station (Termini).  The location is perfect for sight seeing; just a 10 minute walk from the...

More of a hostel than a B&B. Really nice welcome from the reception, nice location but noisy as it is next to a main road. Nice size room but is extremely noisy with water pumping into the water tank in the middle of the night, we could hear it whenever next door was having a shower or using the toilet,...

We are sorry that Miss Erin had a bad sleeping at our place. When she complained she told us about the next room guests who had shower at 4 o' clock at night. We discounted her 15% of the first night cost, which we thought adequate. She agreed, got the discount, then she did not complain anymore, so we thought...

We were welcomed by very friendly and attentive staff - when we had to leave early in the morning to get a 5:30 a.m. train, they packed us breakfast to take with us and ordered a cab to Termini at a reasonable price. The room was very basically decorated (the La Dolce Vita room - from photos online, the other...

Michele was an excellent host. The B&B was very spacious and a tremendous value. We frankly just needed a place to sleep since we walked around Rome from sunrise to sunset. Our suite had two bedrooms, a large bathroom with shower, kitchen, and small dining room. The rooms were clean and a basic breakfast was provided, plus a cappuccino maker....

Staying in Prati

Neighbourhood Profile
Prati
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.
