We had a great stay at Al Colonnato. It is located across the street from St. Peter's Basilica and on the 64 bus line. It also appears to be within walking distance of the metro station Ottaviano, though we never took that. Beyond the Vatican, it is fairly close (within 25 minutes walk) to the Trastevere and Pantheon neighborhoods if one prefers to explore on foot.

Rosa Maria and her assistant Meldy were both very sweet and helpful. Rosa Maria greeted us outside when we arrived and gave us great recommendations on where to eat and when to visit the sites. We really enjoyed her restaurant recommendation, La Vittoria, which was tasty, close and modestly priced, no small order in a major tourist location. We visited St. Peter's Basilica after 5 as she suggested and it was great, no line at all. She also kindly printed out our ticket for the Vatican Museum so we could skip the line. Finally, she booked us a Mercedes transfer to the airport that was cheaper than the standard cab fare. The personal touch is what really makes this B&B special.

Our room itself was very nice and clean. It included a tv, two dressers, a safe, two chairs and table where we ate breakfast. The bathroom was large with a rain shower-head, which was a nice touch. Considering the location and the quality of the place, I thought it was a bargain.

Breakfast was very good. Meldy prepared fresh fruit salads, croissants, rolls, yogurt, and espresso/cappuccinos. There was always lots of food.

We definitely recommend.

My husband and I spent 5 days in Rome under the wonderful care of Rosa Maria in the Moon Apartment at Al Colonnato Di San Pietro B&B. From the start via e-mails and phone calls Rosa Maria was not only warm and welcoming but very prompt with her responses and extremely helpful. Our flight leaving DC was delayed so we missed our connection in Paris. We called Rosa Maria to let her know as she had arranged for an airport pick up for us. She alerted the taxi driver of the change and waited patiently for us to arrive to Rome which was 4 hours later. As others have said she provides guests with maps, info, as well as a phone in the event of an emergency or if we just want to ask her a question. Her recommendations to restaurants and shopping were great. While in Rome there was a special show at the Circus Maximus and Rosa Maria was sure to tell us about this. The breakfast that was provided in the apartment was adequate consisting of cold cereals , milk, Juice yogurt, fruit, crackers, cookies, butter and jams and jellies. This B& B is very close to St. Peters and there is also a bus line right outside the apartment that will take you to the center (about 15-20 mins) where all the popular sites are located. upon our departure we had to go to the car rental agency and Rosa Maria went above and beyond by offering to drive us and our luggage to the Hertz car rental close by. WOW we could not ask for better service, Thank you Rosa Maria for helping us have an awesome time in Rome and feel we have gained a good friend there.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Moon Apartment which was beautiful, spacious and clean we could not have asked for more.

Al Colonnato di San Pietro is an excellent and affordable choice when staying in Rome. The rooms are spacious and extremely clean. The breakfast and cappuccinos are delicious. Rosa Maria was excellent form the time we booked until the moment we left. Meldy was so sweet.

The day we were to leave Rome we had a few hours between check-out and our flight so we decided to have lunch and walk around a bit. About an hour before we we needed to leave for the airport it started to rain so we decided to head back to the B&B and get our bags. Rosa Maria and Meldy invited us into the kitchen and served us coffee (some of the best coffee I've ever had) and we just chatted for a while.) That is one of my fondest memories from our trip.

Do yourself a favor and stay there.

Me and my wife stayed here for 3 nights and a fantastic choice we made.
From making first contact via email to enquire about a reservation to Rosa Maria everything has been perfect. Rosa Maria is fantastic she constantly kept in touch and her customer service is excellent, arranging the airport transfers which I must say is well worth it and meeting us as soon as we arrived to show us the apartment and how to navigate rome she was very patient and made sure we were fine with everything.

We received a lovely bottle of wine in the fridge from her as a treat and she also booked us reservations at some lovely places to eat with great food and great value and it saved us lots if hassle.

The apartment was lovely, clean and well stocked of everything needed. The shower was lovely and hot and bed very comfy and a great location to the Vatican (5 minute walk ) other sites such as trevi fountain and pantheon etc are all walkable. So was really happy with the location so if you want to see the Sistine chapel and the basilica it's perfect.

Rome is a lovely city and we will be back and would stay nowhere else except al colonnato. Thankyou Rosa Maria you are the perfect host.
