“Warm Roman welcome”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Got back today from a week's stay at Althea Inn. Alessandro and his staff at this immaculate, cozy, authentically Roman B&B surpassed our expectations & delivered the warmth of Rome in an otherwise cool week in early spring. It is ideally located within walking distance of major archeological sites with the metro and regional train lines within 5 minutes walk from the Inn's doorsteps. This being our first time at a B&B we were spoiled with the luxury of a breakfast that very few chain hotels could match. Undoubtedly we will be back! Grazie Alessandro.

Just yesterday we've returned from our trip to Rome and we (my wife and my two daughters) stayed here for 5 nights. I've never stayed in a BB before as I always preferred to stay in hotel chains where you know exactly what to expect, but since my prefferred ones were either full or too far from the city I've decided to stay here after previous reviews on TripAd.
Despite all previous excellent reviews as always I was cautious in my expectations. However this place was just excellent! The building is very close to the metro and very easy to find, especially if you spend prior your arrival few minutes to look it on Google maps. There is a bus stop on approx. 150 m from the Inn (lines 83 or 673) that leads to most of the places like Colosseo and the Basilica S. Giovanni in Laterano and these buses were always almost empty and became our prefferred type of transport to the city center rather the underground metro, cause you see where you're going.
The rooms were perfectly decorated and we liked the orchids in the room and bathroom (both were very clean). All beds were very comfy and we felt it especially on the day when we took a long walking tour from Vatican through Pz. Navona and back to the Inn. My daughters were happy to find everyday a candy on their pillows (small things, but very important cause when your children are happy, you feel happy as well and they're ready to take endless walks to limitless historical sights in Rome). Fresh fruits everyday in your room - this was wonderful not only for my children, but for us also. Breakfast was excellent and there is a beautiful terrace where we've had our breakfasts. The minibar - this was the first minibar I've ever seen that is perfectly usable and the most expensive item was just 2 euro which was very good bottle of Chianti - a perfect finish of your day in Rome. Alessandro was excellent host and very helpful. He has excellent approach and attention to the guests. I can recommend this place with absolute confidence!

When I first read the glowing Tripadvisor reviews for the Althea Inn, I was ‘a bit sceptical’. Nowhere could be quite that good, could it? Now, having spent 6 days there, I’m adding my own ‘excellent’ review.

As others have said, first impressions of the area are not that great — but Alessandro’s B&B on the 5th floor is a haven of tranquillity in a bustling city. Although it’s located close to a major road and conveniently close to transport links, it was very quiet.

The accommodation was clean and comfortable and very obviously ‘cleaned and tidied’ every day, while we were out.

As it was March, it wasn’t warm enough to enjoy breakfast on the terrace — but with afternoon temperatures reaching 20C during our stay, it was a wonderful place to relax before going out to dinner in one of the local restaurants.

We’re already planning to go back for a few more days next year.

My Husband and I stayed at the Althea Inn in March 2014. We were greeted by Alessandro upon arrival and taken to a lovely clean room with a peaceful terrace. Alessandro left us a bottle of champagne on arrival, brought a delicious breakfast to our room each morning and fruit each afternoon. It was these little touches that made the stay that much more special.

Whilst it is not located in the most picturesque area of Rome, there are two train stations nearby (two Metro stops from Colesseum), a supermarket downstairs and some nice restaurants close by.

My mother and I shared a room at the Althea Inn for four nights last week. The room was beautiful and clean with fresh flowers every day and a huge balcony. It really felt like we were at home!

Alessandro was an excellent host who was available to answer questions and was very accommodating to our schedule.

The location was a very easy walk from the metro and the train going to the airport. We also found a few delicious restaurants nearby.

It was really the best place we stayed the whole trip!! I would highly recommend it!

We had a lovely three night stay which we could not fault. The room and service were impeccable. Alessandro arranged for a taxi to pick us up from the airport and he and his team accommodated our late arrival. The wine and strawberries were a welcome treat!

The location was great, near the metro and only fifteen minutes walk to the Colosseum. Yes, there were some road works on the main road, but that did not interfere with our accommodation. We found the Inn to be very quite. Other than the hosts we never saw any other guests or residents in the block.

We liked the fact that we were away from the packed streets of the centre and found that we had everything we needed on the door step. Eataly was a short stroll away and had a great selection of wine and cheese for us to enjoy on the balcony before heading out for an evening meal.

We would highly recommend and would stay again.
