“An excellent base to see Rome from”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

I've read some of the damning reviews of this little B&B and just can't relate to them. We had room 2 which was fine for a family of 4, which we are. We needed somewhere to sleep and keep our gear in while we explored Rome and not a hotel in which to hide all day. The room had an excellent view over Via Leonina and once the double glazed windows are shut it was silent. Everything worked as it should of done in the well equipped bathroom. Breakfast is basic but fine and if you don't like it buy your own and store it in the fridge in your room, or go to a cafe.
The surrounding area is lively and quite beautiful. The Metro is right below you, the historic center at the end of the road and churches, restaurants, cafes and little squares are everywhere.
The front door of the apartment building can be a little hard to find first time, but with directions it would be easy. Not everyone who works in the B&B speaks English but those that do, do so well.
A brilliant little place, well located, clean, well appointed and friendly.

Room Tip: Room 2 was perfect for a family of 4 to sleep in.

Clean room in a great location. Limited choice for breakfast but what we expected. Short walk to the nearest metro and very close to collesseum and the main train station. Room decor could do with an update and the bathroom is very small but clean and comfortable for a short stay in rome

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

This is a B&B, not a hotel : don't be scared if you don't see any sign in the street : ring at the door on number 211 of Via Cavour.
Great location : Cavour Metro station is 50m from the door, and the B&B is 15' walk from the Colosseo
The B&B is on the 5th floor with a small lift. Great welcome, Luca speaks english and spanish
Good room (there are only 4 and it is the only one for 4 people) : good size (though fairly small WC/bathroom with shower), very comfortable beds, very clean, not very noisy despite Cavour being a big boulevard
Basic breakfast served in the entrance, take your tray to your room (where there's a table and chairs as well as a little fridge). If not enough, ELITE convenience store is just in front of the B&B
Good wifi and a big Samsung TV
