+ fast wifi
+clean
+secure
+walk to colosseum and the great food in that area
+walk to Coin (huge department store)
+close to the train
+hotel arranged a no hassle friendly airport transfer
+good A/C

-no elevator and a lot of stairs to haul luggage
- You have 2 coffee shops you can get your breakfast (croissant) at and the one that is further away won't shun you for English being your first language. You'll pass a produce store enroute to pick up something with actual nutrition
-we didn't feel we got the room we reserved and paid an extra $30 per night for (junior suite) as that type of room on their website is described as having both a sofa bed and direct terrace access. Ours had neither but instead a trundle bed with no bedding. We tried to address with the staff member who checked us in but she indicated the language barrier was too great and left it at that. We never saw a staff member again in 3 days, so I am not sure how the other guests managed to get advice and rides places. The only contact we had was a note asking us for more $ (tax).

On a side note we would suggest NOT using the laundry service across and up the street from the hotel. We were overhcharged and picked up our casual mostly cotton and nylon laundry so wrinkled it was unwearable. It must have sat in the basket for hours slightly damp and unfolded for this to occur. We would have been better off leaving it dirty than paying to have this done to it. When we asked him to rectify the situation he told us it would be 1 euro per piece to iron it!

My husband, son, and I spent three nights here in May.

Our room was beautiful and spacious. Room was clean and quiet. Terrace was huge and beautiful. Location was excellent - less than 5 min walk to metro and quaint restaurants nearby.

Owner was the most kind and amazing man. He spent hours locating my toddlers lost luggage and went to the airport to get it himself.

Unsurpassed excellence in customer service. Exceptional value. Highly recommended.

Thank you so much for the hospitality and for honestly saving our vacation!!!! We will not forget you kindness and will recommend you to our loved ones.

Comfortable and nicely furnished rooms, excellent location, 3-4 minute walk to the metro, and 15-20 minutes to the Colosseum, breakfast in the coffee shop, which is 200-300 meters away and consists of brioche and coffee only so if you are looking for good breakfast this hotel is not for you!

Room Tip: ask for a room with direct access to the terrace

We stayed at La Terazze for 7 nights and it was fabuolous! Clean, extremely well maintained. Nice hosts - Anna and Alessandro did all they could to make our stay an unforgettable experience. Perfectly functioning air conditioner, nice bathroom, coffemaker and - a huge terrace. Our room (No.4) had its own exit to the terrace where we spent lovely evenings.

Good location - close to the sites, though not in the touristic area, many shops, restaurants and a food market (frequented by local residents) just a few minutes walk. Public transport easily available and a short walk from the Colloseo. Even a police station (in case you are robbed in the subway which is not very unusal and need to report the theft).

Thank you Anna and Alessandro, we wish you many-many guests who will be as thrilled as we are!

We stayed in La Terrazze for 7 nights. It was the best choice we made for our vacation. The place is lovely little B@B. Spotless clean,new,pleasant .Rooms are cleaned every day, Coffe/Tea in the room,morning cakes and bottles of water every day. The nearby bar is a place to have the outdoors morning coffe with a croissant .
Our room had all one needs, AC,little fridge,safe box, hair dryer,wonderfully equipped shower and toilet, tv and access to a large beautiful terrace to enjoy the view and have a snack.
The location is very good. It is far enough from Termini which does not look very safe at night and very close to two metro stations, Manzoni and San Giovanni and also many bus stops.
The special treat- only some minutes walk to Collosseum !
Have a good va action in Rome and enjoy La Terrazze Di San Giovanni!

Room Tip: The room with the direct exit to the terrace was very good,but still, the terrace is open for all gu...

Stayed with my son for 3 days. Excellent customer service. Conveniently located. 2 stops to Termini station (Mazoni stop), walking distance to the Colosseum. We arrived late and Alessandro made sure we got to a place where we could have some dinner. He also offered me his phone so I could call home (USA) to let my family know that we had arrived. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. Loved the bathroom design. We also got free Wifi. Enjoyed going to the nearby cafe for italian breakfast. I definitely will stay again and I will recommend it to all my friends and family.

The hotel was tiny, very beautiful and clean. The rooms were reasently renovated and nicely decorated. There was free Wlan and breakfast (croissants and cappuccino/tea near in one cafe) included. The location is almost perfect, 3 stops with metro to Termini and 10 minutes walk to Colosseun. The staff were friendly and very helpful! They even gave a ride for us to restaurant in the first night! Thank you!!
I will recommend the hotel for all my friends and family :)
