“Great location for travelers with a tight budget!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2012

For those travelers who are on a tight budget and looking for a great location, Casa Romana is the perfect place! Located one block away from the Termini, Rome’s grand central station where the buses, trains and the metro (subway) lead to all the sites, sounds and flavors of the Eternal City! My cousin and I were pleasantly surprise to be greeted at the lobby by Fulvia, the charming proprietress of this small hotel. Casa Romana is on the second floor of an old residential building, with manually operated elevator which I got a kick out of! This place is more of a guest house than a typical B&B hotel. The service was very personal and warm. Our room, with full -size bed, was sufficient in size, very nice, always kept clean and with an efficient air conditioning. Rome in August, is very hot so a good working A/C is a must! The bathroom has a lovely modern fixtures. The hotel has a small common space, where guests can get their breakfast of fresh brewed coffee, yogurt, orange juice, slices of salami and toast. And all day, Fulvia supplied the guests with delicious muffins and fresh fruits. The room has no TV but who needs a TV when Rome is waiting for you to be seen and explored? Wi-Fi was available. We took either the Metro or bus from Termini to all the major tourist sites (such as the Coliseum, Roman Forum, Vatican City’s St. Peter’s Basilica, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona, etc!) are either 15 to 20 minutes ride!
I can’t say enough of how good the location is of Casa Romana. From this hotel we walked to other major and important sites of Rome, such as the church of Sta. Maria Vettoria where one of the famous masterpieces of Bernini – the sculpture of “St. Theresa in Ecstasy” has been in residence. Also, walking distance away, the Saint Mary of the Angels and Saints Basilica, a very vast church that Michelangelo designed around the ancient Diocletian Baths now one of Rome’s great museums. Another church that’s just few minutes walk from Casa Romana is the Santa Maria Mangiore, one of the important churches in Rome, known for its beautiful mosaic. I know I will go back to Rome and when I do, I like to stay again in Casa Romana.

We stayed at both Casa Romana and Fulvia's "Heart of Rome" apartment - Both places were peaceful havens in the heat and intensity of Rome. The Heart of Rome apartment, in particular, is located in a lovely residential neighborhood which is just a few blocks from the Colosseum. I couldn't have asked for a nicer location. The air conditioning worked well, beds were comfortable and we got great sleep. Very quiet at night! Fulvia's hospitality fully lived up to the A+ reviews that I had read before coming to Rome. She gave us great recommendations, excellent directions to get around and made us feel exceedingly welcome. Thank you Fulvia!

Me and my boyfriend have stayed here twice now a year apart- both times were perfect- close to the termini and the buses to get the airport. The rooms are very clean, air conditioner works very well and the breakfast is all I needed. I am sure if we go back to rome again we will stay here again. Fulvia is amazing and has lots of interesting Italy books on the shelf if you need some tourist advice.

Casa Roma has good reviews and I will not sugar quote mine. It is one of the best boutique style accomodation I have come across for a long time. Best of all, the owner - Fulvia will do whatever she can to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The B&B has modern amenities. The beds comfortable, powerful A/C (we needed it in the warm June Rome weather!). Breakfast included yummy (best description) muffins, organic fruits, red orange juice (quite unique), and bread with salami. The coffee in this place is divine.

Find this place easy to reach via a short walk from Roma Termini station. Fulvia will recommend places to eat (where the locals go) that you have to treat seriously. All her recommendations - from restaurants to eat pasta, pizza and gelato, are all great places (and affordable as well).

Room Tip: Ask for a good access key to the property from the street. A few guests said that sometimes the keys...

Perfectly located 5 minutes from the Termini train station. The room was very modern, clean and more like a hotel room than a B&B. Recommend staying in the largest room if you can, which has exposed beams and lots of character. The downside of this room however, is that it's located at the front of the building so you do get a fair bit of traffic noise but not enough to really bother you.
Breakfast was served as a buffet in the corridor, so you help yourselves and eat your breakfast at the table in your room which was a bit different but actually quite nice. Breakfast was quite simple but perfectly adequate with great coffee and pastries.
We were checked in by Federico who was really helpful, provided a city map and recommendations for places to visit and eat which was really useful. Fulvia is also really friendly and gave us a present of some soap when we left as a kind of apology for being away during our stay which was really kind. All in all, good value for money and would certainly stay here again.

Highly recommended. We flew into Rome with a homemade itenary and an idea of where we would like to go (both in Rome and day trips out). During our 10 day stay the location was perfect as we could literally hop on a train or bus to anywhere in Rome day or night.

Casa Romana made our holiday though. Apart from the location, the management and personal attention was phenominal! Fulvia was wonderful and hands on to the enth degree! She gave us some great advice and pointers. Our room was cleaned spotlessly daily, muffins and fruit were set and replenished day in and day out, and the room itself was very comfortable and bed a good quality one!

For all the right reasons to recommend a place to stay in Rome, Casa Romana fits like a glove. And the price is extremely good. Hands down, we wouldn't hesistate to recommend Casa Romana to anyone.
