B&B Palazzo del Duca
Ranked #2,680 of 3,739 Rome B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 October 2011

Beautiful B&B in a great location. Very clean and nicely furnished. A very good value w/a luxury feel. Located on a noisy street, but the rooms are so quiet you think you're in the country!! The owner doesn't live there so difficult to check in when you are traveling and not in control of your arrival time. We had to leave before breakfast but she provided us juice & croisants & access to coffee, wish we could have stayed longer.

Located in a very old neighbourhood, this B&B lets you experience life in the old city. Narrow cobblestone streets, lots of night life, close walking distance to all of the major sites and great local restaurants make for a great holiday.

Alessandra, your local hostess, will provide you with guide books and advice to help with your plans. She will be there for breakfast, providing a full hot breakfast (which is totally unusual in Italy!), in case you have any questions or need directions.

You will share her historical family home and live like the long past cardinal to whom the house first belonged. High ceilings, big windows, hardwood floors and modern bathroom facilities!

Enjoy Rome while you stay at Palazzo del Duca!

We stayed 5 nights here and grew to love it and our charming host, Alessandra. A native of Rome, she really perked up our mornings with her friendly tales and her knowledge of the city as we dined on lovely breakfast selections that included pastries, meats and cheeses, yogurt, fruit, eggs on request, and more. The street was perfect for walking and exploring the historic city center; we only used a taxi to get to and from the train station (25 euros). Our one snafu—quickly forgiven—was upon arrival when we waited about 35 minutes for her to arrive to let us in although we had apprised her 3 hours earlier about our exact arrival time. For our budget, it was a somewhat expensive stay, but we felt it was well worth the price for the superb location and the lovely host. Grazie! Tutto bene!

Alessandra and Maurizio gave us a very warm welcome to their B&B right in the heart of Rome, in our favourite street. With only a couple of rooms, you can really feel like the apartment is your own.

The room was lovely, with amazing high ceilings and a small mezzanine floor, great little bathroom and painted ceilings.

Breakfasts were wide ranging, with continental on offer, and also the option of eggs and bacon.

It was the perfect B&B and definitely the best we have stayed in in Rome, and this was our 4th visit. It's not cheap, but for the hospitality, accommodation and location, it was great value for money.

This B and B was picked out for us by an Italian friend from Rome. What can I say that hasn't already been said about it. Fantastic hospitality, great breakfast, serene surroundings in a beautiful old home filled with precious antiques. After an 8 AM breakfast our host left and we had the entire flat to ourselves. It was close to everything so we were able to return several times a day to rest. Alesandra was a fantastic host. The first morning at breakfast my husband ask if there was any tabasco (for his eggs) and she apologized that she did not have any. The next morning tabasco was on our table. Loved the sounds of the street when we opened the great windows in the sitting room.
The sitting room had a piano, television, books and travel guides and an open bar for our enjoyment during the stay. What could have been better. It was nice to return there between excursions as the temperature was close to 100 in July. The place was spotlessly cleaned every day. Attention to detail was apparent. Loved it.

First time in Rome and what a fabulous location, great service and a room with frescoed ceiling. We read the reviews before booking and we were not disappointed in our choice. Alessandra and Maurizio met us on arrival at 10pm and gave us the grand tour of their delighful small b&b. It has everything you need from air conditioning to wifi to a beautiful breakfast room/salon and a frescoed ceiling bedroom with a large comfortable bed.. Each morning we were given helpful advice on were to go/sightsee and help with booking tickets for the vatican to avoid the queues etc. You are within two minutes walking of various restaurants, five minutes from Piaza Navona and less than thirty minutes fron the Vatican. And the shopping is to die for (so says my wife).
This is definitely the best B&B we have ever stayed in Europe and we will go back.

Yes, it's expensive, yes, you don't get much in the way of luxuries (although we got some of the owner's own olive oil to take home), but it's a romantic, comfortable, fantastically located place to stay - we were there for a week, and we loved every minute of it. Mind you, it was our honeymoon...
