Reviewed 5 August 2009

We stayed at Casa Linnea in July 2009 and had a fantastic time.

The communication when booking was a little difficult (over email), especially trying to pay the deposit (as they didn't accept credit cards and therefore we had to work out how to do an international transfer) but we finally were able to do it through paypal.

They apparently don't usually accept late arrivals (our plane arrived at 10pm) but they made an exception. So although it was not the most pleasant of experiences over email to start with, once we got there that was all forgotten.

The B&B is in an ideal location, close to a main shopping strip and in walking distance to everywhere. We were greeted by Anna and she told us everything we needed to know and then told us that she was going away for the weekend so we had the place to ourselves. As we weren't leaving until late on the day we were checking out I asked if we could arrange a late check out and she said we could have the room until whenever we needed as there was no one checking in that day. It was ideal, especially as it was so hot and to be able to come back and have a shower before going to the airport was wonderful.

The room was quite large, and ours had a balcony outside. It felt like staying in someones home as I think it actually used to be an apartment which they have converted into a B&B. The owners live in the same complex but not in the B&B. Breakfast was simple and typically european - muesli, yoghurt, bread and spreads. Very nice and a good start to the day.

Overall we were very impressed with the accommodation and if we ever go back to Rome we will stay there again.

We stayed at Casa Linnea in June 09, and were thrilled by the place. We were met by the landlord on arrival, and he showed us all we needed to know. He gave us the low-down on Rome, how to get around, what to see, and how to see it, and also recommended some excellent places to eat.

The location is not as central as some, but it is possible to get everywhere on foot, and is very near the Vatican and St Peter's (10 mins).

The rest of Rome is around 15 - 20min walk, but in such a beautiful place, that wasn't a problem.

I would seriously reccommend this place to any travellers who fancy something a bit different than a "run of the mill" hotel...you don't feel ripped off (rare in Rome!), the owners are genuinely nice people, and it's actually quite nice to escape the rest of the tourists at the end of the day!

If you do go, you MUST try the restaurant on the corner...San Marco. We had our last night's dinner there...it was classic Italian food and environment. Wonderful

We stayed at Casa Linnea for two nights in April 2009.

The owner of the B&B is very welcoming and was there to meet us upon our arrival.

The B&B is in a very modern building (the doors open on their own!) on the second floor. There is an elevator but it's quite tight..

The B&B is designed in such a way that it's more of a private appartment than a B&B. Once you're all settled and have your keys, you don't see the owner (or the other guests, there are only 3 rooms and we were using 2 of them). The rooms are spacious and have 2-3 beds. Each bathroom has a different color (we had the pink/purple one) but they are very clean and have a good supply of towels. NOTE: if you are staying for a while, towels are only changed 2-3 times a week. The rooms have TVs, but there are few American channels- this shouldn't be much of a problem if you're running around Rome all day though. There are no phones, but there are hairdryers; electrical outlets and plenty of lighting.

Breakfast in the hotel consists of fresh bread & pastries (the owner comes by early every morning to deliver them), jams, cereals and espresso/capuccino (there's a Nespresso machine in the kitchen).

The location of the hotel is great, minutes away from the Vatican, shopping, great food and the river! This area of Rome is called "Prati" and it's away from most of the touristy attractions (Colosseum, Piazzas etc.) but everything is a short ride away either by car, bus, taxi or subway. TIP: if you're going to visit the Vatican museums book your tickets online and you'll save yourself a tiresome wait outside of the Vatican for at least an hour. The walk to the vatican is short (10-20 minutes) and depending through which online company you book you'll meet somewhere accross the street from the museum (we met on the steps accross from the street).

Overall, this is a very cozy B&B and I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at Casa Linnea during our holiday in 2007. This B&B was recommended by a friend who had stayed there. I was advised that it was quite speacial, which it is. Very modern, clean and spacious. Close to great eating places and sites of Rome. Would definately stay there again and have recommended it to others.

Nice room with breakfeast. We were well recieved by the landlord. The B&B is next to the Vatican and close to the old center. We did everything on foot. There is a nice pasta restaurant on the corner in one of the streets near the B&B

We were very pleased with our stay at Casa Linnea. It was easy to book online, the prices are reasonable and the owner was very welcoming. The room we stayed in was beautiful, very classy, and recently renovated. The location is excellent, walking distance to everything and still very quiet at night. It was easy to find nice restaurants in the neighbourhood.
