“Loved this neighborhood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2009

Spent the last three nights of a month in Italy at l'Arca B&B and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It felt like having my own apartment in an attractive and conveniently located Rome neighborhood. I was within five minutes of many and varied restaurants, shops, bars, pasticcherie, internet, and a bus stop.
Daniela is a wonderful hostess, and her assistant Esther is most helpful. Both speak fluent English. This B&B is a new business in a distinguished and solid older building. Rooms are spacious; furnishings, linens, kitchen, and decor are all brand new.
In addition, Daniela adds considerate fine touches, such as explaining the bus routes,
offering business cards and directions for good neighborhood restaurants, and even printing up a "What to do if you have X days in Rome" suggested itinerary. I especially appreciated the way she handles breakfast: making a variety of breakfast and snack items (yogurt, rolls, juices) available any time of the day or night. My private bathroom (with key) was down the hall, but it was not a problem. I will definitely choose l'Arca next trip to Rome.

Wonderful experience with a friendly touch. Daniella made sure our every need was covered. Rome was a great experience. We had a great time in Europe. I will visit their again.

L'Arca was perfect for us. My wife and I arrived with a 5 month baby and Daniela went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed - she even arranged for a car to pick us up and return us to the airport. The rooms are spotless, large and airy - much nicer than a faceless hotel. The location is perfect to escape the busy streets of Rome and relax in the beautiful park - yet still be able to walk for some serious shopping. Growing up in Rome the host had insider knowledge to share in perfect English. There are great places to eat in the surrounding streets. Will definitely return and hopefully very soon. Will highly recommend to our friends and family.

Thanks to the owner's professionalizm and great doze of hospitality we felt almost at home in our comfy, clean and spacious room, finding everything we wanted from a B&B. And a lot more. The whole B&B was very clean with brand-new furniture (and the hard, best of the best mattresses on the king size bed:) ), the room spacious, with a view of a surprisingly quiet street. Even though we got the bathroom in the corridor, since there are (at least) three of them, we got one for our own. Also we got information on all of the busses (no 90 to Termini Railway St. and 62 straight to St. Peters - only 25 min. drive), and printed info's on museums, what to see, and a lot more. Finally, we spent lovely time without any problems, having the staff (Daniela) cared for everything we needed, including a chat in English and an extra juice, fruit, croissant and cup of coffe brewd in
a free to use kitchen. We WILL come back. :)
