We stayed in the vecchia roma resort twice in the last year. We could not believe how hospitible Marco is. Awesome bloke.

The rooms are nice. Breakfast is great.
Marco sits you down when you get there, gives you a map and proposes some walking tours around rome.

Thanks Marco

Simply put, Marco is the best! He is friendly, organized, and always there to help. As part of the check-in, Marco set us down, gave us a map, told us routes for good walks and the time each would take, routes are neatly color coded. Neat is in everything Marco does. The B&B is kept clean, tidy and confortable; breakfast is delicious. Marco also recommend good restaurants to us. The B&B is conveniently located, Colosseum and Roman Forum are right next door, Metro stop is just at the end of the street, 3 Metro stops to Termini (main train station), 4 Metro stop to Spanish Step. Supermarket is at the other end of the street. My friend and I rented the two bedroom apartment, with 2 bathroom, full kitchen, living room, dining room for 130Euro. That is a good value. We are very happy staying at the B&B and if we ever go back to Rome again, we'll definitely stay there again.

Thank you for your words.
If your stay was good, the merit is yours too!
You were delightful guests and in these cases, it is easy for me to forget that I'm working on it!
In waiting for your return, a big hello,

Marco, the hotelier, offers a winning combination of clean and convenient rooms at an excellent location and a very fair price. However, the real treat is Marco's passion for helping you enjoy your stay and make the most out of Rome. In such a busy city with various tourist traps, Marco's advice was invaluable.
It was great to return to this place after tiring days full of attractions.

We spent a week at Vecchia Roma at the beginning of March and it really is a perfect place for a stay in Rome - comfortable, convenient, good breakfast and lots of helpful recommendations from Marco. Go to the restaurants he recommends and you will escape the tourist places and eat exceptionally well for a reasonable price. Also take advantage of the really nice guy he can arrange to pick you up from the airport. Rome does not need to be expensive and you get to see an area where Romans live and eat. What more could you want?

Stayed here for 3 nights in early March. Quiet, safe and close to Coloseum. Marco's B&B is on second floor of an apartment building. Rooms are nice but they are all part of the same apartment, it is a bit noisy but overall nice for a short stay. Within 10-15 minutes walking you have several great restaurants. Metro is a 5 minutes walk. Marco can help you with where and what to visit if you haven't prepared your visit.

Thanks for taking your time to review.
I'm glad that your overall stay was quite good.
I'm sorry that there has been a little 'noise.
Unfortunately, a B & B not a hotel, and it is absolutely normal that the rooms are part of a single apartment.
Unfortunately, when there are rude guests, who do not respect the other guests, I can not do anything, does not depend on me!
I ask you, however, apologize for the inconvenience, and hope that you will return again to the Vecchia Roma.

we stayed for 5 days in this lovely B&B hotel. The room was highly maintained, clean and elegantly furnished. The owner, Marco, is a warm, generous person, always smiling and always helpful. It was a pleasure starting our mornings in his pleasant company, with the delicious breakfasts he serves. The place has an intimate and cosy feeling that we enjoyed throughout our stay. It is situated in a peaceful yet central area of Rome. We will definitely return to Vecchia Roma, if we get the chance!

I stayed with Marco for 5 days over the summer and it was once of the best weeks I have ever spent traveling. His apartment is perfectly located with access both to the city center/touristy areas and the quieter areas for locals. I would urge you to get as much information as possible from Marco who is incredibly knowledgeable about Rome, as a local, and a sweet guy. He even showed me one of his favorite restaurants and the church where he got married.

The rooms were comfortable and clean. No complaints, exactly what is advertised. Free wife, etc. Breakfast was simple and nice coffee or whatever you like with a pastry of your choice. Overall, it was a great stay.

Those who have already had the good fortune of visiting our city can deepen their knowledge while acquiring a new, fascinating point of view, living for a few days in a district situated on one of the seven hills of Rome. From "Vecchia Roma Resort" Testaccio, the Colosseum, Trastevere, Appia Antica, the Roman Forum and Piazza Venezia are all easily accessible on foot. As well, one can admire the beauty of the Aventino district with its famous Basilicas and the Parco degli Aranci (Park of the Oranges). And don't forget: In only 10 minutes you can reach the Mouth of Truth (Bocca della Verita) and discover its secrets.
