“A GREAT FIND IN A GREAT LOCATION”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

We found this to be a wonderful location with lots of great local restaurants within walking distance. Luca and Glen went out of their way to make us feel welcome, and helped us plan a stress free visit during a very busy time of the canonization. I emailed Luca the owner and he reserved us many site times which allowed us to avoid standing on line to enter main attractions.The inn is very clean and our room was large for the 2 of us. I could sleep 3-4 but it may be a bit tight. There is no common area to gather a group but when in Rome who wants to stay in a lobby anyway? We stayed for 5 nights, and would go back in a heartbeat. Can't beat this place. Elide T

We stayed here with 2 kids (including 1 large teenager). The room was great with 1 double and 2 single proper beds so nice and comfortable. Location is excellent, just down the road from the Colosseum which was nice for an evening walk. There are plenty of great little restaurants round the hotel and I have added a review for one or two of these. The little square with the fountain has a great evening atmosphere so good place to eat. Glen was great, gave us a map with plenty of tips and they were always on hand to help. Luca was very helpful on email before we arrived as well - nothing too much trouble. Glen sorted us a car back to the airport which I would also recommend if you are not going by bus/train. For middle of Rome I think we paid a good price and were very pleased.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for any help and tips as Glen and Luca were very helpful including before we went...

We loved the Balbo Inn. There were 4 of us in a room ( incl 2 teenage boys) and there was plenty of room. The free wifi was a bonus and we never ran out of hot water. Glen is an amazing host with heaps of tips about getting around Rome. Price was great and location is excellent, walking distance from Termini station, Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, basically anywhere you want to go. Very secure building which made us feel very safe. Our room (#1 right at front of inn) was a bit noisy as people came in and out, talking and banging doors so if you are a light sleeper maybe ask for another room. Overall we had a great stay and would definitely recommend to anyone going to Rome.

We stayed for three nights in this hostel. We had a brilliant time. It is within easy walking distance of the Colosseum and there are loads of bars and pizzerias nearby. The area is full of narrow interesting streets with some lovely buildings and a daily market. The hotel owner was extremely friendly and helpful. The family room was basic, clean and had free wi fi. I can highly recommend the Cesare Balbo as a fantastic place to stay for a short break in Rome.

Stayed here for one night only, which my husband and I kinda regret. How we wish we stayed few more days. The trip was just a stop-over for the goal of just visiting St. Peter's Cathedral. I didn't expect Rome to be beautiful, specially if you're staying in a nice place like this. Our one day Rome experience couldn't have been better. Thanks to Luca and Glenn, both were really helpful and accommodating. Not just that, the location is really ideal. Walking distance to almost all of the 'tourist' places. I also am surprised how clean the room was. If ever we'll come back to Rome I wouldn't think twice on staying here again.

I Booked Cesare Balbo as a surprise for my husbands 30th birthday after seeing the fantastic reviews on here!

When we arrived Luca was so helpful in using a map to tell us the best places to eat, locations to see and the wifi etc. Hands on friendly approach made us feel so at home straight away in a new city to us!

Breakfast in bed was a bargain and a lovely homely touch and the best way to start your day in Rome! Glenn had our coffees ready each morning and we asked for breakfast at 8.30 each morning :) however one morning we didn't set out alarms and he knocked and when he didn't get a response he left us to sleep :) when we woke up and opened the door out breakfast an fresh coffees wee ready in minutes with a warm good morning from Glenn as usual!

The location is really amazing! We stayed from Sunday to Friday and walked everywhere!!! No need for public transport perfect location would stay again just for this alone however this quaint hotel has everything people who appreciate travel need!

We packed the wrong adapter and when I text Luca asking where I could purchase one from he helpfully offered to lend us one for our trip to save us some money :)

Overall this hotel was the highlight of our trip and we will miss glen and Luca! Thank you for us Hills for everything this week and we hope you enjoy the little bottle of bubbles we left you which you both more than deserve for your hospitality :)

Thank you!! Bobbie and Andy
