“Very hospitable owners”
Reviewed 25 May 2013

Alberto and Frederika are wonderful hosts and shared much useful information about Rome with us. He even loaned us his alarm clock. Breakfast is very well organized. While only a 10-minute walk to the train station, it is not through an attractive neighborhood. Once there; however, it is a welcome home. Our room was clean, comfortable and plenty big enough for the 2 of us.

The host was very welcoming, and showed us how everything worked. Very comfortable rooms with a private up to date bathroom. A 15 minute walk to the colesseum, etc.
The breakfast was basic but fine as a start to the day, coffee very good.

We stayed at Terminal Gold II, Alberto's second location. It was clean, comfortable, as advertised, and beautifully well organized. We were conveniently near the train and metro terminals, restaurants and a food store. Based on our request, and Alberto's recommendation, we had Antonio pick us up at the train terminal for a three hour driving tour of Rome, coordinating our arrival with Alberto; we highly recommend both the tour guide and the B&B. After a day walking through the centuries, it was lovely to come back to a great cup of coffee, cookies, and a comfortable room. Special thanks to Alberto's wife for her baked contributions to breakfast.

Alberto certainly knows his trade. All that glitters could not be gold but infact be platinum. We have enjoyed 6 fabulous nights at platinum superior room. Many thanks to Alberto and his wife federico for outstanding hospitality, gifts and a delicious lemon cake. Viva platinum .

We recently returned from our stay at Termini Gold B&B and loved it. It was wonderful and you will be in good hands if you choose this B&B. First, the B&B is in an excellent location in that it is a 5 minute walk from the Termini train station and less than a 15 minute walk to the Colloseum. It is also about a 5 minute walk to two metro stations; therefore, perfectly situated for your Rome adventures. Alberto is extremely friendly and goes out of his way to accomodate the guests. For example---Alberto contacted us about a week before our arrival to ensure that we had all the information we needed (directions, check-in time, as well as a neat packet of things to do in Rome). We also arrived in Rome earlier than anticipated contacted Alberto and he let us check-in early (nearly 6 hours early), which was something we really appreciated. Thank you Alberto, as we are still very grateful. The B&B is extremely clean and with Termini Gold there are only 3 rooms and they all over look a courtyard. Two of the rooms share a bathroom and one has a private bath. We chose the option to share the bathroom and had no issues. Since you only share with one other room, there was never a wait and it was always clean. Also, the water pressure and temperature was great. Alberto definitely runs a tight ship and keeps everything extremely clean and comfortable. It is very quiet---so quiet that we actually slept in until around 11 am most mornings. Alberto is willing to help; therefore, if you have any questions or concerns---just ask. I read some other reviews about the location and size of the rooms and wanted to ensure I made a comment. The location is wonderful in that there are 4 restaurants just around the corner, a supermarket one block away, a local market less than a block away, and an ice cream store one block away. All are open late into the evening (open until around 11 pm). We always felt safe. We also found the residents in the building to be very friendly because they always said hello and offered tips on where to eat, etc. The size of the rooms are more than ample because there is a closet, storage space under the beds, and a desk/vanity for hair & makeup. We also enjoyed the complimentary slippers and Alberto also supplied the standard shampoo/body wash packets, if needed. We also enjoyed having access to the full refrigerator as we were able to get keep drinks cold and buy meats, cheeses & fruits from the store for to munch on. We definitely will plan to stay here again on our next adventure to Rome. I would highliy recommend this B&B as the cleanliness and Alberto's attention to detail rivals the high-end, extremely pricey hotels found just down the street from the B&B.
Other info about Rome---if you are thinking about Rome we would recommend purchasing the Rome pass for $34 Euro because it gives you 3 days access to all the public transportation (Metro, bussess, trams, etc). Rome public transport is extremely well marked and easy to follow as there is a complete listing of all of the stops on a specific line at each metro/bus/tram stop. The pass also allows you free entrance into the first two attractions of your choice and to skip entry lines for entry at all locations. The pass definitely pays for itself. We used the pass for the Colloseum (which also includes the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill), and for the Appian Way. (Note: The Appian Way is about 2 miles south of Rome/outside the city walls; therefore, take bus No. 118 south from the Circus Maximus stop. You should be along the Appian Way within about 10 minutes and then can get off at whatever site you want. You also want to make sure you see the Baths of Carcalla, the catacombs on the Appian Way, and for something different---the Capuchin Monastery. Also, pack a picnic dinner/snack and frolic in the park just across the street from the Colloseum. It's really pretty and tree lined with lots of locals playing in the park with the Colleseum as your backdrop.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet, cozy, and comfortable.

Be aware but don't be concerned is the theme of this review. First is the fact that you might not be staying at the Termini Gold at all but like some other reviewers be greeted at the door by Alberto to be told your heading off down the road to his other B&B Termini Platinum. So this review will be posted on both property pages. After your short walk down to your new location a cobbled street with a couple of small hotels you will come to the apartment block where your accommodation is located on the ground floor. Alberto will then sit with you and in his excellent English explain all there is to know about your stay as well as giving you an essential map. The B&B is made up of two letting rooms and a communal kitchen, our room was a small one on the left, yes small,you might give a swinging cat a few palpitations unless you throw it upwards when it would need a parachute to land safely, but spotlessly clean and with everything you might need, comfortable bed, bathroom with WC, basin and bidet. A shower cubical with plenty of hot water and new style shower head is located in the corner of the room. There is a wardrobe next to which is a shelving unit but ladies be aware there's no draws for your draws but don't be concerned there is room under the bed for your suitcase where you can stow them away safely out of sight. On the wall is mounted a TV but don't expect 'Corrie' it's strictly Italian as you might expect. The shared kitchen is where each morning you will find your breakfast on a shelve with your name on and consists of croissants,bread,continental bread and biscuits in plastic containers, if your lucky Albertos wife will have made one her superb cakes for you to tuck into during the day. There are jams and assorted tea bags, coffee comes courtesy of a machine that grinds the beans and makes a lovely fresh tasting drink. There is a three ring gas hob and a table-top mini oven as well as a washing machine. Be aware you eat at a shared table with four chairs but in our four day stay we only ever saw our flat mates once as each of us had difference time schedules. This is an excellent value for money accommodation which is run by someone who takes pride in his business and knows how to treat his guests.
The location is about as good as it gets, if you have stayed in Rome before all you need to know is that it is less than 5 minutes walk from Manzoni metro station. If like me you are a major foreign city virgin hang on to my coat tails for a starters guide to making the most of your visit. As you leave the B&B turn left and walk to the main road once again turn left, ahead of you will come to some steps that lead you underground, this serves two purposes (not to dig coal or get buried as most of us northerners are use to). First after you've gone down the steps keep walking past the ticket machines on the right and the information office on the left which is usually shut or has the light turned off to make it look like it's shut, and up the steps on the left at the other end, at the top turn around and you will see that you are on a corner where if you turn left you are on the main road ( Via Labicana) for walking routes to all the well know visitors sites. By going through the subway you have taken away the pleasure of some the Italian drivers who like to scare the s... out of you as you cross the road. Be aware the two ways to cross a busy road in Rome are at traffic lights but don't expect that just because the little green man is flashing that it's safe be aware traffic especially motor bikes will still come through. The other way is zebra crossings on these you have to make believe you are in the red arrows formation team do not wait for the cars to stop or you will spend your whole holiday there, no, edge into the road and looking at the traffic judge when one will just pass you, then eyeball the car behind and show your intention to cross it will give way, just don't hesitate but be careful.
The other purpose of going underground is of course to go on the metro for this you need to obtain a ticket from one of the machines to do this all you need is €1.50 this is the cost of a single use ticket.
Looking down on the left of the machine you will see a button to select language, once selected you are given a choice of - single use, 3 day or longer, for our purpose we choose single use, once done the screen changes to show the cost of the ticket now all you have to do is feed your money into the round coin slot top right, it will give change if you do not have the right money, once done the screen changes to 'printing' and seconds later your ticket drops into the tray at the bottom, easy peasey (if you get stuck just ask one on the giggling Chinese teenagers behind you for help).
Ticket in hand you now need to head for the turnstile behind you feed your ticket into the slot and collect it again on the top this enables you to pass through and go down to the platform below. Be aware you need to be on the A line if your heading for the main destination, the only time we used the metro was to go to the Vatican City as we found that all other destinations could be reached easily on foot. If this is your first time in this type of environment as it was ours you would be wise to stop and take a few breaths, check on the wall where there will be a list on stations on this line, make sure the station you are going to is not grayed out as this would mean that you would be going the wrong way. The trains are every 2 minutes but be aware you will not be on your own it will be packed but its fast and efficient and once your use to it a good way to travel.
Buon viaggio

Dear Spence, thanks for the nice review and for sharing your advices, I will follow you and I will call my answer “Be aware” too.

Be aware that I run two B&B’s : it is not a secret, we have opened a new one, everybody knows, it’s public, it’s on my website, and if you look well there is a map with the two places, very close one to other. Sometimes happens you could go from one to another, five minutes walking should not be a problem for a traveller.

Be aware that I try to ensure the same quality on the two places : what you find in one is the same in the other, I run the two places with the same pride and passion.

Be aware that you have to read what you book : when you book a “small” double room with French bed and en-suite bathroom you will find a “small” double room with French bed en-suite bathroom : where is the surprise if the room named small is small?

Be aware that price is compared to the accommodation : usually we sell the “small” double room with French bed and en-suite bathroom at the same price of the “standard” double room with shared bathroom, I think it’s fair. We have bigger rooms with en-suite bathroom, obviously with bigger prices.

Be aware that, as some guests tried, when I have better rooms available I give to them without extra costs; sometimes you can have more from me but never less than you booked. And more, in order to avoid any complain, each room is well described on my website.

Be aware that both the sites are close to Manzoni Station, Line A of the Subway : it is written and clearly visible on every website where my structures are.

Be aware that you could find these places excellent, just like you did; thanks again Spence and thanks for giving me the chance to clarify.

Warm Regards
Alberto

Termini Gold is a nice little B&B, not far from the main train station ('Termini'). As many have noted, Alberto is a friendly, helpful guy and he runs a tight ship - the bedrooms are modern (think Ikea style) and spotless. In fact, it was probably one of the cleanest places I have stayed.The bed was large (180 cm wide, I'd say) and perfectly comfortable and we had the one room with an en-suite bathroom (the other two share one bathroom, so if that idea bothers you make sure you get the big one). Wi-fi was free and worked fine. There is a communal kitchen where breakfast is taken and this is also clean and bright. Breakfast is bread (toast, if you prefer), croissants and good coffee (cereal and yoghurt are also provided) - typically Roman, in other words. (On our final day Alberto's wife had baked a kind of breakfast cake for all the guests, which was a nice touch).

In terms of location, the B&B is a five minute walk from the Vittorio Emmanuele Metro station, which will connect you to all the major sights in no time at all. Alternatively, a fifteen minute walk gets you to the Colosseum. The area around the Termini Gold is somewhat unlovely but that's the nature to being in close proximity to a major railway station.

One further point - the gelateria Fassi is just a couple of streets away and is well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Pick the room with the en-suite bathroom. The other two share. All three rooms overlook a central co...
