“More backpack than b&b”
Reviewed 22 August 2012 via mobile

I also do not understand why this place is so highly rated. It has a very misleading website. I thought we were going to arrive at a proper bed an breakfast run by an Italian family. I was looking forward to meeting them! Instead we arrived to find a down at heel dump in need of a great deal of renovation. It was not very clean nor was it a cheerful place. The breakfast amounted to stale bread and croissant probably bought in at the end of the day for use the following morming however the coffee and chocolate drinks were hot and fresh. The owners have no pride in this place. I do not recommend it unless you are a backpacker on a very tight budget. On a more positive note, the staff were very nice and very helpful and one or two could speak reasonable English. The location is good, only 10 mins to the Termini and 15 mins to the Trevi Fountain. Actually you can walk anywhere in Rome from this location without too much trouble.

Rome is awesome. It was my wife birthday vocation and this two days in Rome best of all 3 weekend trip. Hotel locations in center closer Termini. It makes easy to go to airport or Shuttle bus stop. There are too much historic sightseens around the center that's why better to buy hip on off bus tickets aprox 18euro person.

I have just come back from my stay at the Maria Luisa in Rome and have to say I was very impressed. I was looking for a budget hotel and Maria Luisa was more than I could have hoped for. It was easy to find on foot from the train station and was in a good location so that many of the sites could also be reached on foot.

The staff were extremely friendly and even offered us the chance to change rooms if we weren't happy with the one we had been given. However we were happy with the room we were given, even if it wasn't the biggest hotel room I have ever stayed in. It was clean and the bathroom was newly refurbished. A substantial breakfast was brought to the room each morning and the towels changed daily.

Another bonus was the free wifi and aircon.

I would definitely recommend the B&B to anyone looking for a fairly priced hotel with a great location. I definitely would book to stay here again if I was to return to Rome.

Fairly central - near bus station and was walking distance to all sites - if you dont mind walking- its is only 15 minutes to Spanish steps - lots of local bars nearby
Breakfast brought to you in your room - you can tell them what time you would like it
It has air con and free wi fi
Friendly staff and very clean - I would stay there again

We decided to go to Rome on Easter weekend, so hotel prices were high. So, decided to go with a budget hotel. For the price, this place is a gem. It's a great location, we walked everywhere... we never needed a cab. It was very clean, the staff was super friendly and accommodating. We got coffee and some pastries for breakfast in our room. It is a budget hotel, and walls are thin and you can hear slamming off doors, toilets flushing, etc... but, for this price, you have to sacrifice somethings. I'd highly recommend this place..

The staff provided us with all the necessary information for touring Rome. We hardly needed the guidebook afterwards.
The room was very clean and the bed was large and comfortable . The location is great: walking distance to the Termini, Fontana di Trevi and many others. There are some nice and affordable pizzerias and restaurants within 100 meters of the hotel.
All in all, a great bang for the buck in central Rome.
