“Perfect Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013

I stayed at Hotel Boccaccio for two days on a spur of the moment solo trip to Rome. The location was perfect. I was able to walk everywhere from the hotel following a map that was provided. Patty was a perfect hostess. She explained the details of my stay patiently in English, and helped me schedule an airport shuttle for 6:30 the morning of my departure. As a single woman traveling alone I felt every safe behind three locked doors in the evenings.

I travelled to Italy alone and this was Rome was my first stop. Patty who runs the hotel is a lovely lady, very helpful. E-mail correspondence was very fast and efficient.

The hotel itself is on the 1st floor, VERY tiny elevator if you HAVE to use, otherwise a quick walk to reception. The room itself was tiny, but lovely and what I expected. Lovely bod window. There is a sink and desk apart from the bed and cupboard. Shared bathroom ( off the foyer) water temperature fluctuated quite a bit, but it was superr hot in Rome, so I did not really mind.

I stayed 3 nights and would stay here again. Literally 5 minute walk from Trevi Fountain, Spanish steps about 10-15 minute walk and piazza Popolo and Villa Borghese just beyond that. The Metro station Barberini also very close-by (2 stops from Termini) . Loads of restaurants and Gelato shops just down the road as well as a DeSpar supermarket (great sandwiches and baguettes)

The area is lively at times and as a light sleeper, I had to close the window at night after which is was nice and quiet. No tv, but this really wasn't a problem. Patty has lots of maps and other leaflets available.

I normally stay in 3 star hotels when I go to Rome. This time I decided to select a 1 star hotel and I found this Hotel Bocaccio to be a delight. It was my first time sharing a bath when I come to Rome and I found the sharing of the bathroom at the Hotel Boccaccio to be great. The host at the hotel Patti is super Friendly and always available when you have a question on what to do when you have a question on how to get to a tourist attraction or what new to do if you have been to Rome a few times. This is why I call her "Super Pati!!" The hotel is also super close to some of the main attractions and restaurants. it was within a couple of minutes walking to the Trevi fountain, Pantheon and the Spanish Steps. The train station to get to the vatican and other main tourist spots is also two min walking distance

We were here 4 nights for sightseeing in Rome. The hotel has a great location near Fontana di Trevi. Large room (7) with shared bathroom but that didnt bother us. Hotel only has 8 rooms so its very quaint and peaceful. Via Boccaccio is also a quiet small street. Bed was somewhat hard and I would have liked a private water kettle. (One in the hall).
Will definitely go back here!

Only spent one night here but wish we could have stayed more! The rooms are nice and clean, the beds are comfortable. We arrived quite late on the Friday night and Patti was there to greet us. She was very welcoming and speaks good english and we immediately felt at home. There is a kareoke bar right under neath the hotel which is convinient (dont worry its not noisy from the rooms!) and around the corner plenty of restaurants and the train station is a 5 minute walk. The colloseum and main terminal train station is only 2 train stops from here or a 15 minute walk! Trevoli fountain is also a 10 minute walk away for the hotel. This was perfect for us especially having only 1 day in rome. Would deffinately stay here again.

we booked our stay at the Hotel Boccaccio merely off the rave reviews people gave Patty, the owner, we didnt really bother reading about the hotel itself. Im so glad we stayed here, its in the heart of Rome and the Trevi Fountain is only minutes away, we stayed 5 nights and walked past the trevi fountain twice a day....thats a very special feeling. Everything to be seen is easily accessible from this hotel, we walked all day everyday but if walking isnt your thing we noted plenty of pubic transport nearby. The hotel itself is charming, from the moment you step out of the novelty sized cage elevator into Pattys charming hotel you feel at home, the rooms are elegantly decorated and of a decent size, the beds were soooo comfortable you have to force yourself between seeing the sights of Rome and getting our of you comfy bed every morning and although the bathrooms are shared we didnt encounter another guest the entire time we were there. I would stay here again and again!

This is one of those hotels which is on a floor of a large grand old roman building. It's on the first floor and there is a lift. There's a beautiful central garden and all the ceilings are massively high. Buckets of character, feels welcoming and safe and it's on a nice street in a great area, lots of restaurants nearby and not far to walk to everything you want to see in Rome. The only downside is the shared bathrooms could do with a bit of a face lift. I liked that dressing gowns were provided from getting to the bathroom though, nice touch. Warm welcome from Patty who runs it. I loved it here, despite the bathrooms and slept like a log - dark and quiet rooms!

I think your description is not correct as regards the bathrooms, because it have been restored 3 years ago. I hope see you again, grazie e arrivederci
