“Comfy Place to Stay in Rome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2011

My wife and I, along with our two boys (ages 6 & 3), just spent 2 nights at B&B Filomena e Francesca. Good location, less than a 10 minute walk to the Vatican and the nearest Metro stop. The B&B is warm, clean and friendly - great views. Breakfast was basic, but very good. The owners are wonderful hosts, very helpful with directions, etc. We dould stay here again for sure.

Our stay at Filomena & Francesco B&B was pleasant & welcoming for our first visit to Bella Roma. Filomena & Franco were most helpful with directions, where to eat, sights to see & calling us cabs. With a mix up in reservations for my sister & her husband, Filomena & Franco were able to change things around in order to accomodate them & my sister & her hubby were most grateful.
The rooms were clean & comfortable beds were welcoming after some long days of touring & seeing many beautiful sights of the city.
Filomena made good cappachinos for my husband which he enjoyed every morning!
Also the idea that the owners were on the premise made us feel comfortable as other B&B's that we visited, that was not the case.
The small elevator (definitely no dancing!!) up nine floors was out of order one day but we managed OK.
Thank you Filomena & Francesca for making our stay enjoyable & memorable.

We had two nights with Filomena and Gianfranco 7 & 8 October. I had left my mobile phone in our Venice hotel and Gianfranco made several calls to the Venice hotel on our behalf which was gratefully appreciated.
Filomena helped us out understanding the bus routes again which was gratefully appreciated.
Location is excellent, a 5 minute bus trip to The Vatican and about 20 minutes into central Rome. A good location to stay if you're going to a football match or a concert at the Olympic Stadium (about 2km away).
Very clean and tidy room. The only thing that is a little frustrating is the lift is very small so it requires two trips in the lift if you're travelling with 1 or more people.
Overall wonderful friendly hosts and highly recommended.

Fantastic b&b in Rome. Great neighborhood location with lots of small, local restaurants to try and within walking distance to the Vatican. The bus stop is right across the street and we found the public transportation very easy to use to get around. The room was very clean and breakfast was a typical Italian start to the day - cappuccino and a roll - but tasty. The owners were very helpful with showing us where to go and how to get there and they arranged for a taxi to pick us up to take us to the airport. Couldn't ask for anything better!! Would stay stay here again and we highly recommend it! Oh, and there's a great view of St. Peter's Basilica from the balcony.

We had an opportunity to stay at both locations run by this wonderful, warm, welcoming family - Via della Giuliana 72 and Via Tommaso Campanella, 41. Both are welcome retreats from the hustle and bustle of the city. The location at Via Tommaso Campanella, 41 is hidden away further from street and neighborhood noise. The family was very helpful - with small things like helping us to find an adapter and big things like being able to accommodate us at the very last minute when other arrangements fell through. We would definitely stay here again!

Anyone considering staying in a B&B, whether in Rome or elsewhere, should understand that they are not hotels. You must not expect all of the varied services to be found in a hotel, but in place of that -- if you are fortunate, as we were at F & F B&B in Rome -- you will be surprised at the warm hospitality and personal attention you often receive in such places. We stayed here for 10 nights in late January / early February 2009, and it was a total delight. The host and hostess are very friendly, speak English quite well, and are most eager to help in any way possible. Our room was spacious and well appointed, with an excellent bed and a nice bathroom with shower. Complimentary internet service is available via a laptop permanently set up in the lounge area. Breakfast was "Continental," but with a larger selection of choices than usual (including a nice selection of cereals!), and always included a delicious, freshly-baked delicacy from the hostess. Because we spent much of our time at the Vatican, the location was ideal -- an easy 15-minute stroll on flat terrain to St. Peter's Square. But if you like to walk, it is only another half hour's stroll from there on to the classic destinations of "Old Rome" - Castle San Angelo, the Forum, the Colosseum, the Villa Borghese, etc. A ten minute walk will take you from the B&B to the nearest metro stop, and two bus lines just steps from the door can connect you to virtually anywhere in the city. An ample selection of restaurants is available within a few blocks. The price was certainly right too -- far less than you would expect to pay in area hotels -- and credit cards are cheerfully accepted. Where you stay can have a lot to do with how much you enjoy your visit to a foreign city, and we would certainly recommend this establishment most highly to anyone planning a trip to Rome.
