Casa Romana
Ranked #28 of 1,194 Speciality Lodging in Rome
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 May 2013

After reading many reviews we decided to stay at Casa Romana (My Rome apartments) for 4 nights in August last year.

We called when we arrived at Termini station and Fulvia our host met us and helped us find the apartment.

Fulvia was full of energy and information about Rome. She is passionate about Rome, travel and being well travelled herself, thoughfully provides "little extras" and interesting information for guests. There were recycled guide books and brochures from the tourist office and a book swap library near the breakfast bar.

Fulvia is very thoughtful, if you mention you like a certain fruit it might just appear for breakfast the next day. She is very warm and likes to hear about you as well as helping you with what you want to see in Rome. She will advise you on places to visit, circling your map and pointing out her favourite shopping, dining and historical sights in Rome. Thanks to Fulvia we discovered some great restaurants in the Jewish quarter and some wonderful shopping areas.

The apartment is located in Termini which, at first glance, appears to be not the most salubrious suburb and has a bad rap, but is no different to any major train station in any major city around the world. If you look hard enough around termini, there are hidden gems, we liked to have a quick coffee at Cafe Trombetta Via Marsala 44, 00185 Roma (across from the the eastern entrance of Termini station) a cafe that has been there for years and has serviced many locals on their way to work. Order your coffee and pastry at the register first before taking it to the bar. You will be jostled and it is chaotic, but is a glimpse of everyday life.

My husband and I walked around late at night after rerturning from dinner and early in the mornings and always felt safe.

The apartment is close to all public transport at Termini station where you can easily access all of Rome's sites.

If you like walking, it is an easy walk to Diocletians baths, Via Nazionale (shops and restuarants), Trajans Markets and the Roman forum/colosseum.

Don't be put off by the apartment's entrance, or the lift, they look a bit old, but the apartments themselves are tastefully decorated and are a good size for being near the centre of Rome. The beds in both rooms were comfortable and the shower was hot and had good water pressure.

We stayed in two different rooms at the beginning and end of our trip and both were great. They had a little desk with tea and coffee facilities, both had large windows, which was wonderful to throw open in the morning to view the street life below whilst having breakfast and planning the day. The street noise was minimal and the internet access was fast. I was able to upload photos to the computer with ease.

Casa Romana is a great apartment and Fulvia is an exceptional host. Whenever we get back to Rome we would definately stay there again. We have sent a few friends there to stay since our visit and they have all reported good things too.

Don't look any further.

We have opted for the small apartment near Colloseum which is also run by Fulvia. We felt it was an ideal place for the family of four. Very small but comfortable. Fulvia was very accommodating and ensured warm welcome.

You cannot bit the location. The apartment is 5 minutes walk from Colloseum and other main attractions. We have walked a lot as everything that one needs is within reach; lovely restaurants, great shopping, sightseeing...

It is THE place to stay...

I would recommend this place whole-heartedly to anybody planning to visit Rome. While the B&B is located a few blocks away from Roma Termini, I did not find the neighbourhood unsafe. I stayed in the single room for 4 nights and had a great experience. The room was cosy and stylish - came with fast internet (wifi), functional ac and fridge, comfortable bed and clean bathroom. Fulvia, the owner is extremely friendly, caring and attentive. Right from welcoming you at the doorstep to preparing breakfast according to your sensitivities, Fulvia leaves no stone unturned when it comes to taking care of guests. She possesses a very sound knowledge of her city (Rome) and gladly helps you with your itinerary. Thanks to her, I discovered a few wonderful neighbourhoods that didn't feature in my original itinerary and got to sample great food with locals. Her guidance really helped me appreciate the 'Eternal city' better and I can't thank her enough for this. There is a lot of variety for breakfast - yummy yoghurt, bread, jams, butter, cereal, muesli, fruits, cream filled muffins, Italian style coffee, etc. You can prepare coffee and tea at any point of time and help yourself to fruits and muffin throughout the day.
Casa Romana truly felt like a home away from home, and nothing can beat the price too. (an excellent deal indeed) I will definitely stay at Casa Romana when I visit Rome again.

If you were aslo a budget control traveller, but looking for a high value B&B in Roma!

This is so far overdue, it is embarrassing - but after reading the recent reviews, it sounds like things are still the same...which is a good thing!
We stayed in 2011 and it was a great spot for what we needed. We stayed in other parts of Rome during our time there, but needed to be on a train early in the morning and this is right across the street. Besides this perk in location, I wasn't thrilled with the rest of the area, so that is why it is four stars. However, just a few steps away, things pick up and everything works out fine. There wasn't a time that I felt unsafe in the neighborhood.
We stayed in the larger of the 3 rooms and it was great - the bed was comfortable, the wifi worked, the bathroom was big and clean. Overall the decor is simple and stylish all at the same time.
Fulvia had a light breakfast for us each morning and she was really welcoming and friendly, making us feel like we were staying at a friends apartment.
I have recommended this place to many people - you can't beat the price for everything you get. The restaurants around the area weren't the best, but that could definitely have changed since then. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

The place is small and cozy looks like a real Roman apartment. We stayed in a double room with an extra bed because there were 3 of us.We spend only 25 euros each. Even the extra bed was good! Fulvia, the person in charge is very accommodating and she gets to know the people staying there personally, i love talking to her during breakfast time, you can ask her anything. Breakfast has a lot of variety, bread with jams and butter, cereal and muesli, yoghurt,ham, juice, coffee and tea..you can make coffee and tea any time of the day and she puts fruits and cupcakes that you can get any time.

Summary: basically its just a typical hotel with clean rooms and bathrooms in each room (with hot showers and hair dryer) but the best part would be the care Fulvia gives to each of her guests. Plus getting to eat cupcakes and fruits any time of the day is a plus!Would surely be staying there again if i come back to Rome!

We stayed here for 4 nights and highly recommend this lovely B&B. Located about a 5 minute walk from Termini station which on first glance can look a little rough, the B&B is located behind security doors tucked away in a side street. We stayed in the double room which was modern, warm, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The highlight has to be Fulvia who is amazing, her knowledge of rome, kindness, generosity and help made the stay in rome all the more special. Her recommendations from gelati to restaurants were excellent. I was feeling poorly after some bad food in france and she offered to cook me some rice which was very kind. As she was previously a tour guide she has a selection of tour guides, maps and information at hand at the B&B. The breakfast every morning has excellent coffee, and is generous with toast, cereal, yoghurt and juices. We would definately pay a visit for a stay next time we are in rome. Thank you fulvia!!!
