“Great little find”
Reviewed 9 March 2008

An excellent location as a base for sight seeing. The street is one of the main shopping streets and feels very safe. The Vatican City is less than 10 mins walk, and its 5 mins to Ottaviana metro where you can get to most places such as The Colaseum, Palatine, Pantheon etc.

Breakfast is served in the room, and consists of coffee, juice and sweet pastries.

Staff are very friendly and accommodating. They speak enough English to sort out the necessaries.

We stayed in a triple room which was adequate size for 3 for the 2 nights we stayed. En-suite bathroom with excellent shower. Hot water at all times. Room was very clean and was cleaned on a daily basis. Had TV, hairdryer, A/C.

Rooms face onto a side street, and there is some noise of traffic, but isn't too bad.

In summary, if you are looking for a comfortable base (rather than a 5 star hotel) where you can reach the main attractions easily we thoroughly recommend it.

Fantastic B&B!!! We are a family of 4 and finding a reasonable "European" hotel is the key to our travels.
After long internet searches I finally came across this B&B. We require a quad room and for 120 Euros a night it is a very good deal. The quad room comes with its own bathroom and a standard European breakfast. Crossants, coffee, juice and milk. The room and bathroom were very clean and the beds were comfortable. The beds consist of one queen and two singles.
Once you go through the entrance from the street you will walk into a beautiful entryway & courtyard. There should be a porter in little office to direct you to the front door of the B&B.
The owners are very friendly. They respond to your emails very quickly. They do speak English as well as everyone else in Rome. They are ready to answer any questions you have and are helpful to anything you need to know about the city.
They will take credit cards but prefer cash.
Transportation to this B&B is very convenient. Bus #81 is right outsideand takes you to all the major sites (Coloseo, Circo Massimo, etc.). If you walk out onto the street, straight ahead and left (Northwest) 3 blocks is the Ottaviano Metro stop. To the left (West) 3 blocks is the Vatican. Very convenient.
In the surrounding blocks of the B&B are an International market, another market that sells fresh fruits, veggies, and shelf milk if you have little ones. There is also a Pharmacy across the street.
I highly recommend this B&B to all travelers!
Enjoy!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay .

If you want hotel facilities this is not the place to stay but if you want a clean and reasonably large room it is recommended.

We did not want a hotel as did not intend to spend much time where we were staying .

Close to the Vatican and the Metro > plenty of places to eat nearby with a wonderful deli on the adjoining corner.

Paid about E90 for the room per night to include continental breakfast .

Had problems with the key -- so make sure it is ok !!
