La Girandola Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #862 of 3,779 Rome B&B and Inns
Reviewed 28 May 2012

We needed an inexpensive B&B near the Termini train station in Rome for the night of May 23, 2012, so that we could catch an early flight the next day from the airport. We walked the block or two from the station, rang the bell, and were greeted by a pleasant gentleman who spoke no English. He got us settled in and understood our sign language enough to order us a cab for the next morning. After that, we saw no one, since we left before breakfast was served the next day.

The B&B is on the second floor (one flight up) and appears to have only three rooms. Ours was small but extremely clean and comfortable. The furniture seemed new and everything well cared for. It was odd not seeing anyone other than our host (briefly), but the arrangement met our needs perfectly.

The neighborhood is certainly not the best in Rome, but it seemed safe enough and there were restaurants nearby. One was just around the corner. So, it met our needs perfectly and cost only 90 Euros.

Easy to find and you can walk from the Termini station if your luggage has wheels.
The owner offered each of s coffee on arrival.
BUT : he does not understand or speak any other language the Italian. Not a word !
Obtaining information is thus impossible.
Room very small. Bathroom with toilet en suite. Well isolated from (loud) street below.
Wifi and breakfast included.
This is a good budget alternative to the atrociously expensive hotels in this sity-center.

Room Tip: only three rooms there, identical.

B&B is situated just 5 mins away from Termini Station. Spend quite some time looking for it when we just arrived Rome. Owner do not speak English but is very welcoming. He will try his best to make you feel at home and help you in the attractions of Rome. Breakfast was basic, room is small and clean.

I loved this B & B. I have stayed in different B & B's twice before in Rome. This one gets my overall vote as being the best. The room and its' facilities were by far superior to any other B & B I have stayed in. Large room with a good, decent bathroom. Our B & B room was superior to many hotels that I have stayed in. Excellenty value for money. Excellent location, 2 streets from the Termini and close to transport, with lots of small restaurants around also. Good continental breakfast provided, with no complaints here (I have had a better breakfast in a B & B before, but I have had a lot worse also). Walking distance to many attractions. Good service, pleasant people. There were four of us in our party and we all loved this B & B. If you go to Rome on a budget, don't stay anywhere else..
