“Good location,good value, shame about the showers!”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

This hostel is run by a lovely family who are most welcoming.
The rooms are spotless and adequate in size. Breakfast is cereal,toast,yoghurt ,coffee,tea, crackers and cake. Juice is unfortunately served in a plastic cup.
The real disappointment is the showers. They are far too small even for a small person. In this day and age there is no excuse for inadequate showering facilities. These are totally inadequate and depending on your size, unusable.
Doors banging during the night can be frustrating but not the fault of the management.
I will be back -if they change the showers !
Thank you for your lovely welcome.

My stay experience in this hotel far exceeded my expectations!
In jan 2014 I came to Rome for the first time and stayed in this hotel for a week and I loved to stay here .
So that's why this is the second time i m staying in this hotel and not possible for me to stay in any other hotel.
All the family who run this hotel is very friendly and accommodating.
I would like to personally thank Aloisa for the brilliant hospitality!
I felt myself at home during the whole stay in this hotel as whole family give smile all the time.
I felt that I left my London home for some days and came to my Rome home in this hotel because I felt that I m a part of this family.
I will definitely come here very soon.
May God bless this family and hotel as well.
Thank u Aloisa for everything.
Ciao

Lovely family run B&B, who really make you feel welcome and go the extra mile. Very good value, excellent breakfast and clean rooms/bathrooms.

It is in a really convenient and good location (about a 10min walk from Termini station), and while many attractions are within walking distance there are also buses almost outside the hotel and metro station nearby which means you can get everywhere and back really easily.

Next time I return to Rome, there will be no need to search for somewhere to stay as I am definitely returning to Gialel B&B.

Excellent,safe location. It was near with Via Veneto that was the older and beautiful road in rome. Termini station was 10 min on foot. Lovely B&B run by a lovely family,We were provided a free map of the city,the location of the B&B is very good and very easy to navigate from, we never used any public transport and just walked. The room was very clean. Breakfast was nice it was sufficient accompanied by fresh made to order tea/coffee/cappucino/hot milk etc. Selection of croissants,jams,nutella,bread,cheese etc,all nice and tasty. Room was massive,very spacious. Our room had private bathroom it was cleaned several times during the day. Towels were changed whenever necessary. I definitely recommend it and would be back if I visit Rome again.

Room Tip: Rooms in 8 floors with private bathroom was the best.

Very nice owners. One girl speaks English and the others really try. Very welcoming. Breakfast is a simple affair but with plenty to eat. The coffee is fantastic. The B & B is within 20 minutes walk of many sites. It is near thd Borghese Gardens and museum. We shared a bath and no problem. The whole pace is clean, clean, clean! We are back to Rome in a few days and have reserved to stay here again. Good neighbourhood, about 15 min walk from Termini.

Nice, simple bed & breakfast with really lovely owners, which consists of two transformed appartments on different floors of a regular appartment building. It's a 15-20 minutes walk from Termini station, so rather central and in a good neighborhood.

Our room was big and clean, with a rather hard yet comfortable mattress. It was situated towards a patio with practically no noise, while the isolation towards the hallway was little, so that you heard people arriving and leaving.

The bathroom was globally clean, whereas the shower was not in a perfect state, with hot water sometimes being unreliable.

The breakfast is simple but good, with toast, brioche, soft cheese, jelly, Nutella, cereals and yoghurt, juices, tea and all kinds of coffee.

All in all you should not expect the comfort of a 4-star hotel, but for what it is and its price you get a good value. The owners perfect service makes you feel welcome.

Excellent,safe location. Lovely B&B run by a lovely family,although they do not speak english except the girl in reception (during day hours only) it was not a problem. We were provided a free map of the city,the location of the B&B is very good and very easy to navigate from,we never used any public transport and just walked. Vatican is approx 1 hour walking (leisurely pace) Colloseum 45min, Trevi fountain + Spanish steps 10/15 min. Breakfast was nice,just do not expect and hot food items such eggs/sausages etc,but it was sufficient accompanied by fresh made to order tea/coffee/cappucino/hot chocolate. Selection of croissants,jams,nutella,bread,cheese etc,all nice and tasty. Room was massive,very spacious. Bathroom although it was shared was spotless and clenaed several times during the day. Towels were not changed daily,but thats ok too,they were changed whenever necessary. I recommend it and would be back if I visit Rome again.
