“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2013

Recently renewed. friendly environment, owners and employees (who are for the vast majority students at the local university), plentiful and rich breakfast. I assume you can't find anything better at this price in Rome (uh, I was forgetting it: did I mention that it's really cheap? At least, compared to other similar accommodation). Two drawbacks: there's nobody at the reception during the night (but it's not a great issue, since you can close both the B&B entry door and the one of your room) and, if you want to leave your luggage the day of your departure, there isn’t a storage room, so it remains in the hall. Not the most secure and suitable place... In any case, I really recommend it: it worth every single penny. Especially because of the breakfast & the recently renovated and spacious rooms.

Me & my wife visited Rome for the first time in October 2012. We stayed 5 nights in Anthony B&B. We're going to make this short & sweet, so here goes:

- Location of the B&B was great! It's just about 10 minutes walk away from Termini Station
- There's a supermarket (called Sigma) nearby, laundries & small eateries around the B&B
- The reception staff was awesome! Greeted us with all smiles and check in was super easy!
- Rooms were spacious and clean
- Breakfast was average. One weird thing we encountered is the girl staff who was on shift during the morning stood beside and 'watched' us (practically stared at us) while we had our breakfast. Perhaps she was wanting to be there should we need help but it really made us felt uncomfortable. She 'watched' us until the end =_="

Overall, it was a great stay. Worth every cents we paid. Would definitely come back if we visit Rome again

Anthony B&B is a very familiar bed & breakfast. Very well located, clean, good wi-fi, nice breakfast; but the most important think: the warmest attention of Anthony and Elisabetta.

If you want to feel like in a real italian home don't hesitate to come here!!

I jut came to Rome for 3 days and I was expecting A normal hostel, where you have to share the room and things like that but No! This a very nice hostel it doesn't more like a hotel! The room are so clean, all the people are so nice with you, and it's close to bus stops that takes you to the coliseo, Fontana de Trevi , etc!!

Really is a very good hostel!!

Great place for visitors who are mainly outside exploring the city, quite area close to central station.
Very friendly staff, but their English skills were largely poor.
Kitchen can be used, but it seemed that the staff did not "like" to see guests cooking.
Price very reasonable compared to what is offered!

We were in this BB in 04/2011 and not 04/2012
we were in the 30 via palestro building (the Anthony BB, offers rooms in two separate buildings, laying 200m the one from the other, on the same street).

positive points :
- The location of the hotel : near the main train station, and so near the station of bus that bring you directly from Ciampino Airport. The historic center of Rome is on 15mn walk.
- The Students area of Tiburtino is also close, that area is full of small Bars and restaurants at night just near the Rome main university. That Area is may be less charming than Trastevere at night, but having a drink there is very enjoyable, and of course you will meet there real young Romans and not the tourist masses like in the Plaza de Spana or Trastevere nightlife.
- The rooms are clean, and very comfortable. Bathroom is ok.
- The building is an old charming building of the 1920’s, and it is perfectly maintained.
- The breakfast is very sweet, with coffee, milk, fresh juice, and all what you need else … we appreciated the hot little bread pieces maid extemporaneously by the Innkeeper herself.

negative points :
- You are in a BB, that means, that starting from 18h there will be no one in the reception hall. You don’t have to loose your key, and don’t forget previous to your arrival to communicate your arrival time to the Innkeeper to let her wait for you.

This place is probably hard to improve on. Good value for money is one thing, but an excellent breakfast with other guests around the table each morning including yummie sweets and cappuccino is another. Top that off with the helpfulness and cheerful talks each morning of Elisabetta, the wonderful girl who helps with breakfast, and you got yourself a great stay in Rome! Highly recommended!
