We went to Italy last week and I booked the hotel by e-mail a few days before. The Lady told me that we should mail her one hour before arrival. There were so many traffic jams on the way to Rome, that we were really late but Signora Emily was waiting for us for almost one hour.
Since we arrived at about 09:30pm all the parking spots were gone.
I just grabbed our bags and brought them up to our room and Mrs. Emily told me where to find the closest parking deck.
The communication was okay since my Italian is really poor but Mrs. Emily was speaking understandable english.
During I parked the car 5 minutes from the Rooms, she gave a map to my girlfriend and explained which places are worth visiting and how to get there.
She told her to take the 810 Bus which is stopping at Prenestina- Gattamelata just 3 Minutes walk from the rooms to get to the Collosseum and the city center and the 5/14 Tram to get to the main Trainstation where we find the two roman subway lines to get anywhere in Rome.
The Room was very nice with a comfortable double bed and a Bathroom with a Shower, Washbasin, included toilet and bidet. Everything was really clean and nice and we immediatly felt very homely.
The next day we had our breakfast in the room and even all the rooms where occupied, we did not recognize any of the other guests.
I picked up my car at the parking deck and had lots of free parking sites around the House. I took the closest and we went for our sightseeing tour.
The Tour was great and when we came back in the evening we found a nice pizzaria around the corner (called Pizzavolante in Via Filippo Scolari) which offer takeaway pizza for -20% because they normally deliever.
We had two delicious pizzas and two tiramisu for €14,40-(!!!). A really great price for a real italian pizza! The guys from the pizzaria and all people we met around the hotel where really nice. We found out thet there were many people from Bhangladesh living in this Block and we had some nice chats with some of them.
We don´t plan o come back to Rome in the next time, but if we do someday we will shure stay at Signora Emily´s Bed and Breakfast again :)
