“A 5+Star in the middle of Roma”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2013

Let’s be very honest.
Would prefer to stay in hotel in Roma, where you are a number or be in a small familiar place where the owners call you by you first name?
Actually it should be kept as a secret, but I decided to tell special people about this place.

Special people are people that care, look after the things that they stay in, have a feeling for details; know about quality and that have a good healthy taste. If you count yourself as that special, then the Garden of the tortoise, is the place for you.

It is in the middle of Rome but you not feel it. The advantage is that you are in a few minutes everywhere you want to be, to see Roma from A to Z and it so quiet at night that you’ll sleep like a baby.

Ring the owners about one hour before your arrival at the Tortoise-Garden. It will give them enough time and they will be waiting for you to explain all the details about the place.
I want do it here, because you have to discover it.
And then you will be as in your own apartment, just like a citizen of Roma.
Whenever you need something, the owners will help you with tips and information’s as from 10h00 in the morning.

Take a close look at the features, at the floors, the walls, the bathroom and the kitchenette.
The owners have invested all their money (we talk about a six figure sum) in a dream, to rent to special people.
Some people would have spent that kind of money for themselves but not for a B and B.

So my only very personal requests are:
- Please look after the place, because I want to get back there and see it again as I discovered it.
- Write your questions down and don’t bother the owners every hour with questions. They also have a life and a B+B is very time consuming.
- Book with them directly as they have only four rooms.
B+F, Mille Grazié e a la prossima volta,

Room Tip: They have four rooms and they are all top!

This was the perfect choice for my vacation in Rome.
The bed and breakfast is not far from the airport and it is easy to go to the centre or Trastevere.
My bedroom was new, clean and cozy.
Breakfast was delicious and I particularly love the Italian style fresh "cornetti".
The owners are a nice couple and welcome you with a smile.
Especially Fabio, the owner, explained how to get and what to visit in the Vatican and ordered my dinner when I was too tired to go out and waited for it to be sure everything was ok.
All in all the place was above my expectation and I will surely recommend it to my friends.

I'm from Rome, but I had to spent a couple of nights here because of some heavy homework.
The structure is very nice, small and very quiet. This guesthouse is located in Monteverde (namely Green Hill) that is a residential area, for mid (or mid upper) class. There are several bus stops nearby that will allow you to arrive directly to Piazza Venezia (historical downtown) with only one bus (bus line 44) or to stazione Trastevere (bus line 773). Also Fiumicino Airport is only 20 minutes (with average traffic) by car. From this guesthouse the average cab' cost to go to Fiumicino will be less than 40 euro. Gianicolo or downtown taxi' cost should be around 10 euro from here. The level of housing is elevated compared to the price requested. The breakfast will arrive you from a nearby Bar that deserves a true native cappuccino. Everything was perfectly clean during my stay. So if you need a place far from noise, and traffic, well connected to downtown or to the airports, with new and elegant furnitures this place suits perfectly to you.
