We arrived late after our flights were delayed (Ryan air - say no more) and the poor man had stayed up fro us.
The room was massive and really clean and the decorations were beautiful.
Unfortunatley, we had to cross over the corridor to go the bathroom - but this was not a problem.
The Vatican was just a 10 minute leisurely stroll down one street.
When we left, they hugged and kissed us as though we were part of the family - and we had only stayed three nights......I would go here again!!!

Having staying in many a hotel I would have to say this is something slightly different. It's more like having your own apartment in Rome. The guesthouse is owned by Frederich, who lives on the top floor. You get your own set of keys and can come and go as you please. The best thing about staying here is the introduction that Fredy gives you; he sits down with a map and goes through the main attractions, how to get there and points out restaurants to go to.

Location: is about a 5min walk away from the metro and about 10mins away from Vatican City. I have no idea what the guy's talking about saying it took him 20mins to get there! There are a host of excellent places to eat and the area is very safe, (STAY AWAY FROM TERMINI station in the evening btw, there are lots of cheap hotels and hostels around there for a reason...). There's also a market near by and a supermarket in this quiet area.

To get there from the airport you just get a bus to Termini and a metro from there to Ottravanio station, Frederich gives idiot proof directions from the metro.

Amenities: The flat has a free internet point and wireless. There's a kitchen and a coffee machine, you can help yourself to as much tea and coffee (and croissants/sweets/yoghurts) as you want all day, you just help yourself to breakfast when you like. There are 3 showers which you share amongs the guests (about 9 rooms all together).

At a cost of about £40 quid a night, it's not 5 star hotel standards however if you're looking to travel on a budget and are fed up of generic hostels/hotels then you'll really struggle to get anywhere as good as this.

Would highly recommend for young people/couples/backpackers or anyone looking for some peace and quiet.

The management (Friedrich) was helpful, friendly and professional. Very convenientl location for sightseeing in Rome. The subway is two minutes away. From there it´s a short ride to the city center and most of the museums, historical sights, etc.. The walk to the Vatican is in fact a short walk. The management (Friedrich) was very helpful, giving me good advice about the best way to get around Rome, where to eat, shop, etc.

The rooms were clean and well taken care of.

The next time I go to Rome I will book my room there Again.

One of our friends recommended we stay at this place and we werent disapointed. It's very close to the metro even though we pretty much walked everywhere. The place is clean and we dont have any complaints. The staff was amazing help and told us where to go and what to see. It was the perfect stay to our perfect weekend in Rome.

Fredderic has his B and B/ Hostel more like an really nice, clean apartment with a lift. We had a large comfortable bedroom,use of a kitchen,super clean tile baths,large TV /dining room where we helped ourselves to breakfast. There is also free TV and computor access as we were 2 of the thousands unable to leave for a week, in route from Siciy , waiting for a return flight to La Jolla , California and really needed to get on line..
Also available at any time free was yogurt, cereals,milk,croisants, snacks , candy and a wonderful gourmet coffee maker-all free.It was very convenient to groceries,restaurants, Metro and buses- 2 blocks away
We will definately stay here on our next trip to Roma. A GREAT BARGAIN!

Stay away. It's not 1 step, more like 20min on foot to the Vatican. NOT convenient to visit center, there's no metro near Pantheon,other. Shower was clogged, flooded the bathroom. BEWARE: I stayed 5 nights, paid 1 in advance and arranged with them to pay the rest later. But the owner banged on my door at 8am, woke me up and yelled demanding money. I offered to go withdraw cash to pay but she accused me of trying to leave without paying (all my stuff in my room). The worst experience ever.
