The hostel I had booked for my trip to Rome fell through at the last minute, and I heard about My Guest Roma last minute from my father. I emailed Stefano three days before my departure, desperate for somewhere to stay, and he was gracious and very helpful from the moment I first spoke to him. Upon arrival, Stefano sat down with myself and the friend I was traveling with in the quaint kitchen/breakfast room and gave us detailed directions to the sites we wanted to see, as well as restaurant recommendations for that night. He really made an effort to make us feel at home.
The room itself was lovely, large, and clean--especially surprising because for the price we had expected a setup more akin to that of a hostel. Breakfast was complimentary and Stefano sat down with us while eating, helping us to plan an itinerary for our day. It seems that Stefano is fluent in at least Italian, English, and French, as I noticed him speaking with ease to a French family at breakfast. He really is the main selling-point of the hotel--it's amazing how an owner who really cares and goes out of his way to make your trip great improves your experience.
The only slight downside is the distance from the center of the city, where the main attractions are. However, it was fairly easy to catch a bus about a block or two away from the hotel, and go straight to the city center. During the day, we also walked to the subway stop, which was about half a mile from the hotel, which also easily got us from one side of Rome to the other.
This was probably my favorite place I stayed throughout my semester-long travels in Europe, and is the best value for accommodations on a student budget, in terms of spaciousness, comfort, and hospitality.
