We stayed at Maribells last year for a few nights and when returning to Rome this year we immediately wanted to have a repeat visit at Maribell. We really love Marina and her charming and helpful personality. Nothing is too much for her and each morning we would give her so much to look for us online, mapping out our route to wherever we were visiting that day, whether it was going to be by foot, by bus or by train. Marina has everything at her finger tips and solves all your problems for the day. She also has a lot of recommendations and if you wish she will arrange your tickets for the Vatican or whatever else you may need.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the bathrooms very clean and up to date in style. You might prefer the room with the ensuite or like us, you might choose the larger bedroom with the separate bathroom. It is very conveniently arranged and very private.
The breakfast is excellent with yoghurts, croissants, cereals etc along with juice and excellent espresso or capuccinos.
This year Marina has an extra addition to her family. We all fell in love with Arturo, Marina's full size Dachsund. He is adorable and sooo well behaved. He was allowed a little visit each morning and he was one of the highlights of the day.
You will like Maribell because, it is so private. There are two rooms available with a communal breakfast area and each time we have stayed together with two friends and so have had the place totally to ourselves, but it is also very private for just one couple. I love the boutiquey and yet homey atmosphere.
The location is one of Maribells best features. You are a short walk from Piazza Navona in one direction, the Vatican in the other direction and in a third direction you are a few minutes from Piazza de Popola. So whichever way you walk you are very close to different major attractions whether you are looking for historic sites or the wonderful shopping that seems unending in Rome. We also walked to the Gallery Borghese from Maribells.
I hope to return to Rome as it is my favorite city and if, or shall I say when I do I shall head for Maribells and stay with Marina and Arturo, the best value in town.
