“Great small B & B near Spanish Steps”
Reviewed 7 May 2012

We prefer to stay in the Spanish Step area when we visit Rome and were delighted to discover this B & B. It is conveniently located, spotless, and very secure and safe. We stayed there for a total of 5 nights (3 upon arrival and 2 at departure) in two different rooms. The first room was smaller and facing the street so there was some morning noise. The second faced the rear of the building and was larger and quieter. Giancarlo, the owner, is gracious and very helpful. Breakfast was your standard European bread, yogurt, cereal, fruit but Giancarlo also makes wonderful cappuccinos (American size, no less). Beds were most comfortable; keys were provided so you could easily come and go; and we were able to leave our luggage both upon our early arrivals and late departure. We plan to make this our B & B of choice for any future trips to Rome.

One downside for some people is that breakfast is served up a flight of stairs. Since the building (and the B & B) can accommodate wheel chairs, I assume Giancarlo would help facilitate breakfast for anyone unable to climb the stairs.

After traveling for two weeks through Sicily we were looking forward to spending a few days of rest in Rome. What a huge disappointment.......the room we were given was so small and very dark. No place for your luggage, only a step under a high window that you could not look out. Traveled with another couple who's room was fine. My husband and I went across the street to the Hotel Continental and got a wonderful room with excellent accommodations. Be careful not all rooms are the same at this B&B.

Room Tip: Do you homework.......the only thing good is the location.

Dear Madam,
you have booked 2 double bedrooms in a bed & breakfast. A bed & breakfast is a private house, not an hotel; all the bedrooms couldn't be the same.
The bedroom of your friends was fine, as you say; your bedrroom was small, not dark.
The InterContinental Hotel De La Ville, across the street, where you found "a wonderful room with excellent accomodation", is a 5 Stars Hotel, a little better than a bed & breakfast ! The price too: more than 400 euros/night.

This B+B is superb! Located directly opposite the Hotel Hassler at the top of the Spanish steps, it's location is fabulous. It is in a lovey, clean apartment block and has 3 bedrooms.
The room we had was a great size and had an en-suite bathroom, also of a great size.
We felt very safe - it is a nice area at night. You get a set of keys - one for the outer door to the block, one to the entrance to the B+B and one for your room - so it is really secure. We slept very well - comfy bed and very quiet room - the B+B was full, but we didn't hear any of the other guests at all.
It is super clean! Absolutely spotless.
The owner is really helpful and provides a lovely breakfast in the morning - yoghurts, bread, cheese, fruit juices. coffee/tea etc He also let us keep our bags in the room and use the facilities the day we checked out as he didn't have someone in the room that night. As our flights weren't leaving until 10pm, this was a real bonus.
We would absolutely recommend this B+B and will certainly return if we travel to Rome again.

We had booked and were looking forward to our stay at All'obelisco B&B in Rome. After finding the B&B ( which is very conveniently located to the Spanish Steps), the owner Giancarlo told us that our room was not available due to the illness of the previous occupant who could not be moved. However, he had gone to great trouble to find us alternative accomodation (no mean feat, as Rome was very busy), just down the road. We were disappointed but did appreciate the fact that taken the time to find us something he considered to be the equivalent of his own B&B. He had also paid the difference in the tariff as the alternative accomodation was a little more expensive.
