Recently we stayed at the Beehive in Rome, and it was a great experience. We rented two rooms in "The Sweets" for our family of 5. Each room had a private bath and a small balcony. The location is very close to the Termini which made it easy for arriving and departing, as well as heading out to Rome through the metro. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the cost of the rooms was quite reasonable. The staff recommended a nice family restaurant next to The Sweets--maybe The Regina?--and we ate there a couple of times along with non-touristy types. Check the case in the middle of the restaurant to see what they have on offer for lunch. The roast chicken is delicious as is the lasagna. Also, you can purchase a bottle of good wine from the Beehive's front desk. If you are staying at The Sweets there is a very pleasant common room with a fridge, large table, dishes and cutlery but no cooking appliances. Good for takeout or easy breakfasts of fruit, yogurt, etc.The Beehive's online and printed guide to Rome was extremely helpful both for planning our trip and while we were there, and they provided a communal iPad on site too. Our only complaints were:that the breakfast at the Cafe was a little overpriced, and that charging extra for air conditioning (an extra 10 euros per night, per room) during the hot Roman summer seemed a bit steep. Otherwise we were very happy with our stay and plan to return again.
