“Nice stay, a little loud”
Reviewed 4 December 2010

Two families traveling together, total 4 adults and 4 teens. We stayed 3 nights at the B&B. Easy walk from the Metro station, maybe a 5 minute walk once you know where your going. The B&B is located in an apartment building which has a buzzer intercom system to be let in (you get your own key once you check in for the main door). We had the whole apartment to ourselves since we were a large group and this worked out fabulously. The balcony was very nice but unfortunately it was too cold for us to use it. The apartment was very nice, small kitchen and bathrooms but that is normal for Europe. There is an expresso machine, toaster oven, microwave, refrig. and oven along with all the utensils, plates, cups, etc. Water, juice, milk, cereal and packaged pastries are provided. The owner will bring up a small plate of fresh pastries every day. Unfortuantely we were always leaving for the day of sightseeing when these were brought up so we ate them in the evening upon our return.

My only complaint, and this isn't the owners fault really, is that we only had one good night sleep. The first night we were woken up about 11 p.m. by someone ringing our doorbell (this person was inside the building and actually at the apt. door). We didn't open the door but tried to speak to him thru the door. He was saying something about being "Official" and the rest was in italian. After he rang the doorbell for about 2-3 minutes and yelling at us he left and never returned. At midnight we woken up again by our doorbell ringing and there are two young English speaking girls at the door looking for the owner of the B&B.

Third night of our stay and there is a lady outside the building ringing every buzzer and yelling "Please let me in". This continued from 3-3:30 a.m.

All in all a great place to stay for the cost and I would recommend it especially for groups because they can all stay in one place.

Much better than expected. The three rooms each have an entrance to a beautiful terrace, there are two baths which have everything you need: shampoo, shower gel, etc. Very clean. Unlimited coffee and sweets. Breakfast with fresh cornetti from a local bakery. Very friendly people. Signor Vittorio knows and has everything, even bus tickets ready for you and free city maps. Would recommend to anyone, even with kids. Quiet area. Very close to bus 87, which takes you to the Colosseum, and 3-5 min walk to metro station San Giovanni.

We spent 2 nights in the triple room, 3 adult and one child of six year old. The room was good, clean, and it was about 400 m from subway station, San Giovani. We stayed at "Home for holiday", at 6 floor. This B&B have 3 rooms, 2 bathroom (1 smaller and 1 bigger bathroom) a kitchen and a shared terrace to the three rooms.
Mr. Vittorio was very friendly, we had water, croissant, some sweets, bread, milk, coffee, tea...and fully use of the kitchen. He put for us a baby cot in the room free of charge, and merge two bed.
The only bad thing, was the little bathroom which needed some renovation.

Superb stay in Rome. Vittorio, the owner, was excellent, he cared for everything. Location is great, in safe environment, you can walk to metro station San Giovanni or Re di Roma. The cleanliness of rooms can not be beaten. You have a terrace for breakfast and smoking. Internet was good. We would come again here anytime.

We have booked this place upon reading the good reviews in Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. As mentioned by others, the owner was kind and helpful although his English was limited. Our two rooms were adequately spacious with two shared bathrooms with showers. Free wifi at the reception area and fresh croissants delivered by the owner who lived above the unit. Shared kitchen was available for our use and had proper utensils, fridge with water/juices and coffee machine for making our own coffee. Location-wise, it's a bit off the tourist area but with easy access by bus and metro. Laundry, restaurants and supermarkets were nearby which was handy for cooking some of our meals. We were happy with our stay there.
