We were in Rome to celebrate a very special birthday- thanks to Claudia and her team we had the most amaxing time. The room and bathroom we had was so lovely -(it eally was amazingly clean and spacious) . The bed was so brilliant - they have the Tempur mattresses and we slept the sleep of the dead. There is no passing traffic tospeak of so nothing to disturb us. Breakfast on the open air terrace was gorgeous and it was just a lovely in the breakfast room - Soll looked after us so well. It was great being met at the airport by Mr Tim -it took the stress right out of finding our way in a very strange and new city.

We totally agree with Chris from Boston that this can only be recommended. Do not worry that it is not bang in the centre of the city- I am sure there is no way we would have liked to be in the noisy centre - it only took 12-15 minutes by bus staight into Veneza (just by the side of theCapitol Museum ( can you fall in love with a building - I did) -go up the sloped stpes at the side where the bus stops and around onto the terrace at the back overlooking the Forum and down towatds the Colliseum -it's awesome -and only 5-10 mins walk.

From Veneza you can walk to the Pantheon in about 10 minutes - how much more central could you be. Buy a Roma pass it is well worth it. We ould recommend you buy a guide to the bus and metro routes as these seem a bit difficult to find and unlike most Europeam cities the routes whilst named on the bus stops there is no map showing of the routing- we were told even the locals find the buses a bit of a mystery!

Try the local eateries and the Trattoria's - the food is amazing.

We hope to return next year and will definately retrun to Bamboo - x

I stayed at Bamboo for 5 days in Aug and I have to say my stay was wonderful. Ac works great in rooms. Very clean rooms and main areas, they take proud keeping the B&B up to date. This is not a hotel, you feel as if you have your own apartment in Rome. Yes it is a little outside the city but easy transportation is very close by. The 44 bus maybe a block or two away will take you to all major attraction (it drops you of in front of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier), Also Quattro Venti train station is about a 5 min walk and that will take you to the Vatican/ St peters Square. Go all the way down the stairs (all the way down) I believe train 2 one stop will get you there. The staff at Bamboo were superb, every question we had or anything we needed bamboo staff was there to help. Remember this is a B&B in Italy so if you are checking in late afternoon let Claudia know ahead of time as there is sometimes no staff in the B&B. On the 5th floor no worries there is an elevator. Breakfast is typical for Italy but make sure you ask to have a cappuccino it will only make your day better. I will try and check back on this site if anyone has any question.

Claudia thanks again for a great stay and good Staff

This was our fist visit. The pick up at the airport from Tim was awesome. Loved seeing his face after a long flight. Upon arrival to Bamboo, details of the area were limited. We felt a little lost without any concept of train, buses, walking routes, etc as no details were given, and Claudia was nowhere to be found. Essentially we were dropped in the middle if Rome-huge city, overwhelming!

The next morning we were greeted by Tim's wife, who makes a great cappacino and is lovely and helpful! Day 2 was much better. Breakfast is simple. A fresh croissant and packaged foods, maybe some fruit? Depends on the day it seems.

It is about a 30 min walk to the Vatican, but make sure you have clear directions before stepping out the door, and there is also a grocery store near by.
I wouldn't say " don't stay there" but just know its not "over the top" in any way, and maybe not as close to the site as you may expect.

The Bamboo B&B was beautiful, with modern decorations and spacious rooms. Claudia and her staff are truly wonderful. We laughed with them and enjoyed their company immensely. Claudia was more than willing to let us use her laptop to send emails home, to buy train tickets or bus tickets and do whatever else we needed to do. She even assisted us in getting tickets. She is warm and caring, as is her staff. The B&B is quiet as it is in a neighborhood on a hill over looking the city. Within 1/2 mile of the B&B is a huge park with miles of trails to run, walk or bike on. It is about a 20 to 25 minute walk to Vatican City and the walk provides spectacular views of the city. We even walked to Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps from the B&B. It was a lovely walk. We were able to catch a city bus and take to the the coliseum and the ancient center. It is great location because you can experience the tourist side of the Rome and you can enjoy Rome like a resident.

Room Tip: We saw inside all the rooms and they are all beautiful!

Quiet, clean and home feel renovation is found in Bamboo B&B. We stayed for 4 nights last week (July 11-15) at the Elephant Room. If you don’t mind a bit away from the City Centre, it is highly recommend. Easy access to Trastevere & Vatican by walk, and have a look & see the Italian residential surrounding along the way. Like Janiculum Hill, wonderful view of the city. Or to see the traditional midday gunshot at Gianicolo. Especially like to have breakfast in the morning at the terrace with other B&B guests, sharing the fun and tourist tips. Or just have a cup of tea in the evening after the hot day tour. A mini supermarket is left down the corner of Via Basilio Road. Few shops are on the both sides for an ice-cream or snack with drink.
Restaurants are few steps away from Bamboo, wonderful food & wine with reasonable price, like Ristorante Lumie di Sicilia and Ristorante Eden. It is safe around, even walk back to Bamboo after 10:00pm.

We sincerely thank you Claudia for the arrangement and sorry not saying ‘Goodbye’ to you on Sunday morning before our departure.

This B&B is within an apartment complex and it's on the top floor. Don't worry - there's a lift.
The room is big and spacious. It is nicely decorated however the panda/bamboo theme didn't work for me.
Central Rome is a bus-ride away so the location is good. A taxi from Roma Termini should cost 15-20 Euros.
Breakfast is on the balcony and it's a good place to interact with the other lodgers.

Please note that the bathroom is not attached to the room. Each room has it's own private bathroom and it's across a small corridor. Payment is made either in cash or Paypal.
