“Our favorite place to stay in Italy”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

Of all the places we stayed on our Italy trip, this was our favorite. Natasha was amazing, a wealth of good information and advice, and went out of her way to accommodate our needs and desires. The always-available food and drink was a nice touch. Breakfast was great too -- Natasha picked up fresh croissants and fruit every morning, and the quality showed. Location is good as well, a reasonably safe neighborhood, convenient access to the metro, and easy walk to the Vatican. There's a small liquor mart right across the street, and a street full of cheap street vendors a half-block away. Also easy access to good restaurants and gelato. We were also given our own key so we could self-access the place at off-hours. The rooms have safes.

The only (minor) downside is that the wireless signal in our room (Diana) was a little weak.

Giardino Segreto is charming, clean and a lovely place to stay in Rome for a very inexpensive price. (Diana) was very well furnished and quite comfortable. The bathroom was a nice size and well designed. The terrace was lovely, too bad it rained so much while we were there. The breakfast was quite nice, since Natasha made sure there was always a nice selection of pastries, plus meat, cheese and cereals. Also, fresh fruit. The coffee machine was wonderful, since we enjoyed it whenever we liked. It is very close to the Vatican, with plenty of restaurants, shops and public transportation nearby. It was a great base for our visit to Rome, since we could walk to the Vatican and get to other parts of Rome with nearby transportation. Natasha was always very helpful and friendly and gave us very good directions to get to where we wanted to go. I would definitely recommend the Giardino Segreto to others visiting Rome. Also, I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Room Tip: Stayed in the Diana, which was close to the front door and elevator. The only problem was hearing t...

Giardino Segreto may be considered as an extension of our home in Rome. Nice, charming, clean, cosy. We can prepare breakfast by ourselves, but it is like been at our houses. Very near Vatican city, full of restaurants right on the next corner! My husband and I loved staying there and we will be back, for sure!

Don't be too concerned by the location of this accomodation, behind the brown door that greets you the 4 rooms are very clean, well decorated and have a lovely style. (If you like a firm bed ask for room Diana!) The rooms have air conditioning and are well furnished and a clean and suitably sized bathroom. With curtains, double glazing and window shutters the outside noise is almost nil. The breakfast room is bright and offers a variety of coffees and fruit juices. Cereal, ham, cheese and bread are also served along with daily bought pastries. As others have commented after a few days the food was getting a little tiresome but otherwise it was pleasant enough.
We were greeted by Natasha who was helpful and cheerful together and gave a number of good tips. Situated a short walk from the Vatican and close to trams, metro and tour buses (outside St Peters Square) it has a good position in the city. We did take advantage of the offer by the owner to be picked up at Ciampino Airport for 70 Euros but took one of the many white Rome taxis back at just 30 Euros so it's worth looking into this first. Overall I would have no hesitation in recommending this accomodation.
