A View of Rome
Ranked #18 of 3,743 Rome B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 October 2013

My husband and I stayed here for a week in early June on our honeymoon to Rome. The location right next to the Vatican was unbeatable—like the name implies, we had a fabulous view of St. Peter's Basilica from our window. It was a very short walk not just to St. Peter's and other attractions but to public transportation (both subway and bus), a grocery store, numerous restaurants and cafes, and the fantastic gelato shop "Old Bridge" right down the street (we went there almost every day!).

While it's a little hard to find the entrance at first, once you get up to the B&B, the facility is beautiful. Our room was lovely, in great condition, with a nice shower and mini-refrigerator among other amenities. The B&B owners were incredibly helpful, kind and friendly. They repeatedly went above and beyond to make us comfortable and help us figure out places to go and things to do. My one regret is not taking more of their suggestions, particularly for restaurants, because everything they recommended was perfect‬!

A View of Rome is a fantastic bargain—all the comfort of a fancy hotel plus friendly, personalized service at a great price. I recommend it to all my friends visiting to Rome. I would most definitely stay here again on any future trips to the Eternal City.

Our stay at at Touch of Rome was exactly what we needed for a whirlwind tour of Rome. The room was clean, spacious, quiet and comfortable. We were able to step outside and walk effortlessly to the Vatican for our early morning tour, as well as catch the bus (stops are right across the street) down to the Colosseum and other ancient sites. The staff was extremely nice and accommodating in every way..offering great restaurants to eat and small tips to make our travels easier. There is a little market steps from the door and ton of places to eat nearby. If you have an international phone, it will be helpful as the B&B is situated in a building with several other apartments and businesses. We hit the buzzer out front with no luck, but found better success by calling them to come down and take us up in the elevator to our room. Great stay, great value... highly recommend A Touch of Rome!

We stayed at both A Touch of Rome and at A Peace of Rome on two separate visits to Rome. We loved the neighborhood feel of both locations. Public transportation is close by. Every person on staff went out of their way to be helpful, with great restaurant and sightseeing recommendations. Rooms were modern with comfy beds. A great place to stay in Rome!

Staying at A View of Rome was the best! The location is ideal: a lively neighborhood just outside Vatican City with public transit and many restaurants, and the promised view of St. Peter's dome from our window! The double-paned windows six stories above the street keep out the noise and open, delightfully, for a look outside. Our clean room was small but offered plenty of storage in the wardrobe, bedside table and shelves. Daniele, Livio and Filipo were charming and extraordinarily helpful hosts. Their touring and restaurant recommendations were excellent (don't miss the restaurant in Trastevere), and thanks to their timing advice, my husband and I were able to get into the Vatican Museum on a Saturday afternoon without a reservation. We enjoyed our breakfasts with the innkeepers and the other guests. Let them arrange airport transfer (driver and car) for you; it's the civilized and safe way to get into Rome after a lost night's sleep.

We received a warm and friendly welcome from Lourdes on our arrival. She was very helpful in explaining the transport system and where the main historical landmarks were. The room was spacious, clean, and very quiet. The hotel is located very conveniently and is only five minutes away from bus stops, tram stop and Metro and also only five minutes away from Vatican City. Although we didn't take her up on her offer, Lourdes was happy to arrange for tickets for an audience with the Pope, which I believe takes place on a Wednesday morning. There are no breakfast facilities at this hotel, however, there are a number of places nearby, and if you are happy with a croissant and coffee as we were, there are a couple of small local cafes at the end of the road. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending to friends.

We booked this B&B based on Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. This was our fourth trip to Rome. We have always stayed near the Pantheon, however, this time we wanted to stay somewhere different and decided to stay near the Vatican.

A Touch of Rome is literally right across the street from the walls of the Vatican. It was such a perfect location for us. What we liked about this area was that it was not quite as touristy as other parts of Rome. We ate in small restaurants and shopped at local stores and bakeries that were frequented by locals, rather than tourists.

We were in Room #1. It was large and modern, and extremely comfortable. It had a small refrigerator and coffee maker. Though they don't serve breakfast, Daniele suggested a local bakery a block away that was ridiculously cheap and very yummy. While in Rome, we were in the middle of trying to buy a house in the USA. We needed to download documents from our lender for our signature. This was a stressful time for us. Lourdes was extremely helpful and accommodating. We closed on our house on time, but we could not have done it without her - thank you so much Lourdes! Everyone from Lourdes, to Daniele, to Simone were all so nice. They always responded to our emails immediately. They also arranged transportation for us to the airport on our last day. The driver was 15 minutes early. He was extremely courteous and a very safe driver.

We look forward to staying at A Touch of Rome on our next visit.

Thank you again.

Everything you want from a B&B and more. Fabulous location and really really helpful staff - Daniele and Simona can not do enough. Throughout our stay they were so helpful, recommending great places to eat and providing advise on places to visit and the best time. The B&B was located on the first floor, but if you need a lift then no problem, one is available. Your accommodation is clean, bright and well maintained. A Touch of Rome location is excellent for the Vatican, Metro and shopping. The clue is in the name!

Room Tip: Book early to avoid disappiontment
