Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 August 2011

I loved this B&B and would definitely go back. I adored the family who ran the place and they were very responsive if there was a problem.

Clean rooms, air conditioning and convenient location....They went out of their way to be helpful...We preferred to go to a neighborhood cafe for breakfast, but the hosts did prepare coffee, etc.

We stayed at AGV 2001 for 3 days over the Easter period. The B&B was very well located for the Vatican (~500metres to the Vatican museum entrance and ~1k to the main square).

The rooms were clean & tidy and the Satellite TV had English channels (which was not the case in other places I stayed). We asked for the room at the back which is away from the main street and was very quiet. The breakfasts in Italy leave a lot to be desired and here the breakfast was basic, but adequate. It consisted of packaged croissants, bread for toast and cartoned drinks. However, the items were available throughout the day for a quick snack after site seeing. There is also a fridge available for you to store food.

You have access to a PC and printer which I'd highly recommend using to book tickets for the Museums - this will save you from standing in queues for hours.

The main reason for recommending a stay at AGV 2001 is the owner Ruggero. He was the most helpful and generous host, who would happily sit with you making recommendations on everything from the best restaurants to how to plan your days. On his PC he has pictures of some of the more peripheral sites to see which help you locate them swiftly.

He is incredibly proud of the ratings his B&B has received and he is genuinely concerned that his guests have a good time, and goes beyond what you would expect from a B&B owner. The night before we left he gave us a bottle of wine, some sun-dried tomatoes and spiced meat that was very useful for sandwiches as he knew we were going on a long distance train journey the next day.

However, my overriding memory of his dedication was on the last night. His wife went into labour and somehow he found the time to write us a letter wishing us well and posting it under our door! I'm not sure what his wife thought of this but it did make me laugh in the morning and demonstrates his commitment to his guests.

I have no hesitation in recommending a stay here and for the money I think you would struggle to find a better place to stay.

Room Tip: I'd recommend the back room which is away from the street outside.

Very good location a specially for the Vatican.The B & B is acceptable and reasonable priced for Rome.Rooms are OK,though my wife said it had a damp'ish smell.Slight noise from the road outside.Breakfast was only adequate,help yourself.Plus, you can make tea/coffee anytime. The Host Ruggero was first class,he was very helpful.He would spend much time with you and listen to all your plans, then give very good advice.He would down load Maps Etc.to help you get around.Then show you on the map where each place is.Could not be more helpful.His advice to go to St Peters in the mid to late afternoon was excellent which we did,and got straight in.Visited the Vatican Museum whilst the Pope was out front. So got straight in, no queue ( booked online. )Very handy location for Buses and Metro.Ruggerro will advise you on everything. Good restaurant nearby is 'La Rustichella,very popular reasonable priced .We went 2 nights in a row.Managed to see most of the sights in 3 full days ( stayed 4 nights.) Can not see me going back to Rome.My wife got robbed in the Metro so be very careful.Thanks Ruggero, for you help,hope your arm is now better.

We stayed for 4 nights,& had a gr8 time. We have travelled to many places but never have we felt so much at home as we did at Ruggero's B&B. The B&B is conveniently close to the Vatican & other sights. Comfortable rooms, clean bathroom, substantial breakfast options & the best of all, Ruggero the gr8 host!Goes out of his way to make you feel at home. Gives you all the important info, maps required to go around.It was just like being one big family, all the guests together!I would love to come back, & advise all travellers to definitely spend their days in Rome with Ruggero.

We stayed 3 nights in June 2011 at AGV 2001 B&B.
It´s very easy to find. We walked with our luggage from the next Metro Station (8 minutes) to the B&B. We got a warm receiption. The owner of the B&B took time (1,5 hours) to explain us the room (eg use of aircondition, TV, Shower) and the main sights of rome. He gave us maps, personal tips for sights, restaurant suggestions and he tried very hard to answer all our questions during the whole stay. The room (including bathroom) was very clean and very quite. In the kitchen unit you can prepare breakfast or take a small break with italian coffee, cereals, marmalade, croissant, fruits, yogurt, milk, butter, bread,... as often as you like. There is also a lovely terrace you can use and a computer with free Internet. We look forward to come back again next year!

We spent 3 nights at this B&B which was a perfect base for exploring Rome. The rooms and facilities are very clean, a basic but plentiful breakfast was offered which was adequate for fuelling up for the day ahead. It is only a 10 minute walk to the vatican and also convenient for public transport. The owner Ruggero could not have been more helpful. He really made our trip by making sure we got to see as much as possible in the short time we were in Rome. He helped us plan our days, printing out routes and sights. He also recommended excellent restaurants and the best gelato!

We would not hesitate to recommend this B&B to anyone who is looking for an inexpensive, but very welcoming stay in Rome and if we ever get the chance to go back to Rome we would certainly stay here again.
