“Great location, and great hosts”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

We stayed in this apartment for 4 nights, we booked it with breakfast. The two host Piera and Francesca were very nice and helpful! The room we had was big and clean, the bed was also comfortable. The "must see" things of Rome are in a walking distance, the bus "H" from Termini Train station stops two steps from the house. Or Trastevere train station is just few minutes by tram. Trastevere's restaurants and bars are just around the corner! I can recomend this place.

This B&B was in a lovely apartment building in the centre of Trastevere, just a stones throw away from the best restaurants in Rome and within walking distance of the main sights, too! And the staff were friendly. For the amount you pay it is great.
However it is extremely noisy! Every time the tram goes by the whole room shakes (and we were staying in a room that was facing away from the main road) and every time someone flushes the toilet or uses the shower anywhere in the apartment building you can hear the water rushing through the pipes. If you're a light sleeper I wouldn't recommend this place, however after walking the streets of Rome for hours every day you should be so tired that the noise doesn't bother you!

Nobody there to let us in when we arrived which was extremely frustrating after a one flight. Got in contact with the owner who said she marked us down as a "no show" because we didn't contact her to let her know the time we were arriving...she said she emailed me twice but I had nothing in my inbox. Turns out they went to my junk mail. Be aware that on off season it seems that breakfast isn't included, even though it clearly states on booking.com that breakfast is served daily. There seems to be people permanently in the B&B during off season - perhaps family members, but they seemed to come home at all hours of the night and it was disturbing to our sleep. The B&B is in an apartment building on a very busy street and ABOVE AN UNDERGROUND TRAIN LINE! Very noisy / shaky at times! We didn't stay in the room much as we are out most of the day but when we were there it was noisy. Especially in the morning. Staff aren't there all of the time & beds are not made up every day & towels are changed EVERY THREE DAYS..... The place was in a decent enough location and clean enough but strange set up. We did contest the fact that our booking confirmation suggested that breakfast was included and discussed the fact that nobody was there when we arrived to let us in and we were given a free breakfast token for day #1.... Breakfast was a coffee & a croissant at a cafe down the road which I thought was strange since it is a B&B and clearly stated on a leaflet inside the room that "breakfast is served daily from 8:30am - 10:30am. We were told that breakfast costs an additional €6 per person if we wanted it on the other days.

Room Tip: We had a room with a shared bathroom and never had to wait for the bathroom which was good.

We had booked a double room with ensuite via booking.com but upon arrival were taken to another building around the corner where we had a whole groundfloor appartment with a huge courtyard to ourselves. There is a soup kitchen for the poor in an adjacent building but this did not affect us in any way. The appartment was spacious, with a newly renovated kitchen (never used, sticker still on the range hood), new lounge suite and lovely bedroom. We also had free wifi. The ladies running this place were very friendly and tried their best to assist when there was no hot water. This was fixed a few hours later. The whole set-up did not seem a 100% professional (someone else's coffee, sugar and biscuits in the pantry, coffee filters but no perculator, two large thermoses but only a small plug-in kettle, no bottle opener-we bought one and left it there, no one came to clean or make the room during our stay). However, we really enjoyed the unexpected privacy and all the space we had. The hosts were contactable by email or text message. The area is great, there are lovely restaurants nearby, and we walked to all the sights in Rome. Getting there from the airport was easy using public transport. We really enjoyed our three days there.

First of all, I must admit that I spent only one night in Dulcis In Fundo, which makes my experience rather limited.
During our previous visit to Rome we were staying in Termini area, so for this trip we wanted to book a hotel in a nice neighbourhood. Prices in Rome hotels located in city centre a rather high in summer, in that scenario the prices in this B&B seemed very attractive.
We were expecting to arrive in the B&B after midnight, so I let the staff know about this fact for more than 2 weeks before arrival. You have to know that for any uncoordinated check-in, or for check-on with delay equal or more than 1 hour there is a fine in the amount of € 25.00. Anyway, we negotiated time of my arrival 4 times - in my booking request, in my first warn and the feedback, then I was asked about my arrival for the 2d time by another person, and finally upon our arrival the lady in the B&B thought that we had had to come at 10 PM (when in our correspondence I clearly indicated that we'd come after midnight to the B&B, as our flight would arrive at 10 PM). Fortunately, I explained that and we did not pay any sanctions. That's it for the administrative part.
As I already mentioned, the location is very nice. It's situated in the part of Trastevere from each you can easily walk to the very city centre in 15-20 min. As well as Trastevere itself is very beautiful and romantic.
The room was very clean and well-decorated. Can't say the room was too big or too small, just normal:) I also enjoyed the spacious bathroom which looked great.
But it was rather hot there. The lady which met us told that she let some air in by opening windows prior to our arrival. It helped a little, but all in all it was stuffy while according to our booking info the room had to be air-conditioned.
Breakfast was included in the price - tea or coffe with a nice pastry.
In a general way, my expereince was ambiguous, may be you'lle have a better one.

cara ospite
l'importo richieste nelle e-mail è solo un avviso e riguarda quegli ospiti che non hanno rispetto per il lavoro altrui e quindi non comunicano l'orario di arrivo o arrivano a notte fonda pretendendo che noi siamo li svegli ad aspettarli da ore!
ovviamente questo non è stato il suo caso e le e mail che ha ricevuto sono generate da un sistema automatico che ne invia almeno 4 prima dell'arrivo perche come gia detto non tutti hanno la premura di avvisarci sull'orario di arrivo che è per noi fondamentale non essendo un hotel con recepiton 24h....
spero possa soggiornare da noi per un periodo piu lungo.

I have a lot of words about this place: it's in the centre of Rome, very close to Pantheon and Piazza Navona. We don't use a taxi, because we can go everywhere by feet. The room was very clean and comfortable - cleaning woman Natasha is the best person in the world, so kind and smily )
The owners of flat - Piera and Franchesca are very cool and beautiful girls, they can help you to explain where to go and what to visit.
What's else?
A lot of good things, but it's hard to explain, so you must try it! Visit Dulcis il Fundo and it will be the best trip!

My partner and I stayed at Dulcis in Fundo for our Roman holidays and we cannot be happier with the service, the kindness of the women who worked there, the location of the B&B, the room... Everything was more than perfect!
Clean, spacious rooms furnished elegantly. Best croissants of Rome for breakfast. Great location in the heart of Rome, close to public transportation if needed, close to great and authentic restaurants, roman attractions, clubs, shopping etc.
We loved staying there and warmly recommend this lovely B&B!

Room Tip: We stayed at room nr 1. clearly the best one :)
