Retrome Rome
Ranked #541 of 3,721 Rome B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 November 2013

We stayed there last September. The staff was wonderful. We stayed for 2 days then went to Capri and came back for another two days. Breakfast was included at a little cafe about 1 block away. The neighborhood was great. We really liked being away from the main city but close enough to get to any of the main attractions. Hats off to Angela , she made us feel like family.

Retrome is a great B&B and the people who work there are very friendly and helpfull. They gave us good tips on what to do and see in Rome. The breakfast that you get and the coffee shop Antica Roma is awesome! Angela told us they recently switched and it seemed that this was a good idea :)
Thanks Angela, Sandra and the dude from pakistan for your time and we enjoyed our stay very much!

I stayed in the 2-bedroom apartment for 9 nights, with my husband and my elderly parents.
The apartment is very spacious, clean, bright and has good ventilation.
The kitchen is equipped with microwave oven, toaster, kettle and gas stove.
We did some simple cooking.
Washing machine and clothes hangers are provided.
My parents enjoyed a lot relaxing at the small balcony with street view, while taking coffee and tea.
The location is great, walking distance to the colossuem, with many eateries around, and yet away from the noisy traffic and bars.
Other public transport connections are plentiful, including metro, tram and busses.

The apartment block itself is nice and clean. The neighbours we met were friendly.
I have stayed in another apartment nearby and that block was congested, dirty and eerie.

I think the garbage truck comes every alternate days at about 6-7am. May be a little noisy for the master room, but it is just for a short while and not a big problem.

Would love to be back again.

Pros:
-excellent location near colliseum in a quiet residential area
-room was a decent size and very clean
-the decor was unique and fun
-service was excellent. Angela the innkeeper was very friendly and helpful. We were warmly greeted, offered a coffee and given a map of the city with great information
-the gelato shop down the street was among the best we had in all of Italy
-value for your money. Tough to beat this place for the price.
-the bed appeared hard at first but it had memory foam. We slept very well.

Cons:
-the breakfast was served at a cafe down the street. We ate there 3 times and were always served a different combination of things despite ordering from a specific menu. The complimentary breakfast did not rank very high compared to other places we stayed at in Italy.

Overall I would highly recommend retrome. I would not hessitate to stay here again.

Great location within the city (blocks away from the Colosseum) which puts you very close to everything else since the Colosseum is a hub of all the major site seeing buses, metro and more. There is also a great gelato place on the same block as Retrome and great food less than two blocks away in any direction. Room was great and serviced every day while we were out. Sandra at the desk was more than helpful and speaks perfect English which I hear you don' always get at some B&B's. Small community kitchen and fridge were available, which my wife and I used to make tea/coffee.

Chose this hotel based on price and location. All hotels in Rome seem to be overpriced for what they are, so this is one of the better ones. It is round the corner from the Colosseum which is fantastic. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was very small but you're not going to spend much time there, are you? The little kitchen was useful and would be even better if we were able to cook in there. Breakfast is provided by a little cafe around the corner - service there was haphazard until we had words with the hotel staff and from then on it was fine. Note to all travellers - if something's wrong, say something! Would recommend to anyone looking to find somewhere economical in a good location.

Perfect situaded near Colosseum and for those who want some gaylife it´s really Close to some of the best bars in Rome. The room was nice and clean and the personal was very nice and helpfull when we arrived.
The bad thing was the bed, terrible to sleep in. Also that we couldn´t pick up our luggage later after our last day there.
