“Great B&B Experience”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

I've read good reviews about this B&B, I am glad that I followed the recommendations and booked a room here.

Location - it is very accessible, about 5-minutes away from San Giovanni metro. As Rome is easy to navigate, the bus stop near the metro and major attraction is very helpful and convenient to travel around the city.

Also, if you consider to stay in for the day, there are two supermarkets, a row of restaurants and a laundromat near the B&B.

Facility - our room feels homey and spacious for three When we checked-out, the room was being set-up for Quadruple sharing, so it may be a bit restrictive to move around.

There are two bathrooms, for a shared facility it is surprisingly clean. There's a lady who cleans the place daily and refills the toiletries as needed.

The breakfast is included, fresh pastries are brought in every morning. Coffee, milk, cereal and fruits are also available. You are allowed to cook if you want.

Value for money - it was our first experience to stay at a B&B and it was a good start. The rent is acceptable (at EUR 80 per night for triple sharing) and we felt comfortable the entire stay. Definitely recommending this B&B!

This B&B wasn't something we had expected, specially with shared facility but it turned out to be the best B&B we stayed in during our 3 week holiday. Staff was brilliant and rooms were as comfortable as your home. We tried to stay there for 2 more night but it was fully booked although we were offered another smaller room with the balcony, which we accepted but again it was only available for one more night so we preferred to move to a different location in order to save the hassle of moving every night. I strongly recommend this place and don't worry about the shared bathroom as they have two bathrooms fully equipped even with cotton buds haha. Kitchen can be used 24/7 and milk juice and water is always available free of cost.

Excellent for going to Rome and stay at a cheap price in a decent and very clean hotel.
This a familiar house with 3 rooms, so you don't get many confusion (that is excellent when you want to get rest after a tiring day).
The owners are really nice and they bring you fresh croissants each morning, what else do you want?

We spent there only one day and a night, but our first impression was very good. It was very clean, comfortable and a really nice memory to have about Rome. The host and his daughter were chatty and friendly, the coffee and croissant were excellent in the morning, there were two nice bathrooms to use in good condition and we liked the safe and green area of Rome it is located in, without tourists. We wish we could stayed longer.

We stayed In June and then again in July. We had a 14 & 17 year old. The quad room was plenty big with no crowding and the balcany was fantastic to sit and drink wine at night. Victor was fantastic host as as seen from other comments very hospitable. Also bringing us special treats to my daughters sweet delight. We worried about sharing the two bathrooms but in the end decided we preferred the bed & breakfast lifestyle. Since we often had different schedules we mostly had full use and no waiting for restroom. We also enjoyed the meeting of new people and family atmosphere.

We also found near subway station "Re Di Roma" the best Gelato at Ll gelato di Procopio on Piazza Re di Roma, 39. It was the highlight of each day, sometimes twice a day.... We would try other shops but none compared.

TIP if you are traveling with lots of luggage take the bus instead of the subway as easy on/off. although I believe Re Di Roma subway stop might have an elevator. Everything is very close.

When we go back to Rome, this is where we will stay. My kids insist!

Reviewed 8 January 2012

I stayed at this B&B for for 5 nights with two friends.
We shared a triple room in the sixth floor of the building.

As soon as we arrived, the owner Vittorio showed up and told us everything we needed to know about our room and the apartment in general. He also provided us with an additional UK-EU adaptor for electronics as we only had one between the three of us.


The room was spacious and it was perfect to stay in when you return from visiting the sights. The room was clean and felt comfortable.


There are two bathrooms available which provide you with liquid soap, shampoo and other things you need.

Free WiFi was also provided.

Every guest was able to use the kitchen, which had all the dairy products, coffee, teabags, bread, water (bottles) etc. included and ready to use.
The fridge and cupboards were always full with snacks and drinks.
We were also able to make our own food there.


The place is situated a few minutes away from San Giovanni Metro station, from which you can easily reach Termini Station and other sights such as the Spanish Steps, Vatican City and Museum etc.

The colosseum is less than a 30 minute walk away.

There is a supermarket called Tigre about 5 minutes and also a McDonald's around 10 minutes away if you were outpriced by the expensive restaurants.


The area looks pretty safe as it is quiet (even during daytime) and whenever you walk through the roads, you only seem to pass by elderly citizens.

It was also quiet during night, although you could hear the elevator (btw that elevator was tiny, something different to what you're normally used to) operating a few times during the night.
The beds were really comfortable.



Few words on Vittorio:

He is a very friendly man who helped us whenever he could, providing us with a map or informing us about the public transport.
So if you any questions about Rome, simply ask Vittorio.

It was simple to communicate with him despite the language barrier.

He also offered us free wine/beer and a Tiramisu. The Tiramisu was the best one I have ever had, it tasted amazing.

He bought fresh pastries and croissants for every guest in the morning and made sure that the cupboards are filled.




Overall it was a great experience as it felt like I was at home and I would definitely consider this B&B if I ever was to return to Rome in the near future.

Room Tip: We were in sixth-floor of the building.
