“Not so great!”
Reviewed 9 February 2012

Let me say the location is great - our room not so great. As one review mentioned they advertise bath in every room - NOT TRUE. If you are booking the single room - you will get the balcony bu the bath is across the hall - NOT in the room. Management runs another business so you always have to call if yu need something. Room was very clean. Location at night is very noisy as it is located near restaurants and some kind of a club that plays loud music.

I stayed at this Apartment with my wife, son and his friend after returning back to Rome after a cruise. It was not what we expected at all and after being dropped off by taxi we found ourselves outside of a tatty resedential block with a restaurant underneath. Someone at the restaurant called the owner who arrived pushing his child in a pram. nothing wrong with that at all but the whole episode was a bit alarming for the family. Once through the front door we were in a courtyard of four flats that were clearly a resedential block. We were let in and Fabritzio the owner asked us to leave the money by the kitchen drainer. We never seen him again apart from when he popped back and started fixing a radiator. The toilet systern was faulty too and running water could be heard, other fixtures were faulty and the beds not too comfortable. The descriptions on this website confinced me to book this apartment but it was a disappointment. The area had a kind of Ghetto feel to it rather than holiday apartments. The only accurate aspect is the fact that it is very close to the Colleseum.

Room Tip: Suitable for a group of lads but certainly not families

We found this B&B to be reasonably priced and a great location. We booked the B&B online and received confirmation and many emails back and forth to secure the room. Fabrizio met us at the apartment and let us in to our room quickly after our arrival. He is very courteous and informative. The room was spacious enough for myself and husband and the bathroom was quite large. We ended up having the entire place by ourselves for our 3 days we where there. The breakfast was adequate
And the espresso was plentiful. We highly recommend this location and had no issue with any noise…even if it was noisy it was worth the ease of the location to all major sites. I felt safe and comfortable in this area and if that matters to you this works out great. There is a restaurant that had good pizza right below the B&B and a store a few feet away from the B&B. We stocked up on some snacks and water and made things a little cheaper. Don’t hesitate to book with Fabrizio he was a great host. If you are looking for luxury and service a B&B is not your way to go, but budget conscious travelers looking for a clean room with a gracious host then book this B&B you won’t regret it.

Room Tip: This B&B has numerous rooms ask for one with a balcony.

Earlier this month we stayed for 6 nights at B&B Santi Quatro, and were very pleased. When we arrived, Fabrizio, always helpful and gracious, arranged for us to stay in apartment, one floor above the B&B proper. The apartment was large, clean and with modern conveniences -- and we just had to walk down one flight to have our morning breakfast. Breakfast was fine but choices were a little limited.

The location is tremendous. The Colossuem was a city block away and a Metro stop was nearby.

We would stay here again and would recommend it to friends.

In late August, I stayed a couple of nights at B & B Santi Quattro after a long flight and the owner was especially kind, helpful and courteous. After a very long flight from the U.S. and connecting flight, it was extremely welcoming. The communications via email and in-person were pleasant and enjoyable and I would recommend this accommodation. Also, when I arrived, I had a bit of a cold and all of my requests were answered--including extra juice!

Thank you Fabrizio! See! I told you I would write a good review! But you deserve it! Thank you for helping me and the fair price. Auguri, Anthony

When we planned our 10 day Italian honeymoon we did a lot of research online and pre-booked everything 5 months in advance. We liked what we saw at the B&B SantiQuattro website (especially rooms with views of the colossseum) and based on the pictures and reviews we booked a double room for our last day, which was confirmed (at that time, again a week before the trip, and again the night before).
We arrived on our final day of the trip to find that the room we wanted was not available, but they had a "nice apartment" for us (he offered two choices). This place was around the corner and down the street and did not have views of the coloseum. The apartments were dirty and run-down, but we were tired and chose one. The host left us to think. On a lark, I lifted the bedsheets and found dead bed-bugs (none living, but still...) We left immediately and looked for another place to stay. We were upset about our reservation being arbitrarily changed, about the condition of the apartments, and about the bugs. I have not yet checked my visa to see if we were charged for the night, but I hope that we were not. Luckily we did find a great place to stay for the night.
I assume the B&B rooms are nice and Fabrizio seemed nice, but the whole operation seemed a little sketchy.

bbsantiquattro, Proprietario at B&B Santi Quattro al Colosseo, responded to this review, 17 October 2011
We sent, as we always do an email to the client specifying that the rooms with a view of the Colosseo were not available but at the same price as a double room we could offer him an entire apartment at 100 meters distance away, which is managed by us.
The client confirmed the booking.
When he arrived he immediately asked for a discount on the daily price. We showed him two apartments and told him that any extra discount was not available as the normal price of the apartments was much higher than just a standard room. He told us that he preferred to go elsewhere.
We stated that he would however have to pay for at least one night.
He then said that if we did this he would write a negative description of our structure on Trip Advisor.
He in fact did this, stating completely false information: The client did not find any bugs and he never slept in the structure, he simply refused the apartment because of the price and certainly not the cleanliness ( the apartment was rented the next day to other clients without any complaint!).
We have filed a police report for slander at the local Police department CELIO. We gladly accept criticism and advice as we always want to improve our service but we cannot tolerate people who use Trip Advisor as a method of blackmail to obtain discounts not due.

Rome was our first stop on our Italian vacation and we stayed in one of the apartments with another couple for 3 nights. The location was perfect for seeing all of Rome - right by the Colosseum and close to the Metro and taxis. There were also many great restaurants and cafes nearby. Out of all of the places that we stayed in during our vacation, this was one of the few places that we had air conditioning. The only negative part though is that only one room really got to experience it. There was also only one small bathroom for four people, but it wasn't too bad. We didn't end up cooking in the kitchen, but it was definitely set up nicely to do so. Fabrizio was great and very friendly. We had some trouble reaching him when we first arrived and waited for about an hour, along with having a hard time meeting up for breakfast each morning, but he was always very friendly and enjoyable. The convenience and cleanliness made up for all of this.
