Reviewed 8 September 2010

As any of the other rewievs about this place, I would recomand it to anyone who whis to stay away from a normal hotel vacation.
If you want to stay privat , silent and want to get the sence of the real roman life to day, ths is the place to stay.
Plusside is you have a mini kitchen, to make your own breakfirst, coffe at any time you want. You have a great balcony to relax and spend time.
Clean, nice and a warm welcoming family.
Don't look any further for a place to stay. Stay here.

Do not be scared off by the graffiti on the wall or the distance from the metro, this B and B is situated right near the Campo de Fiori and is in a perfect location to see all of Rome's sights on foot (Vatican and Colosseum 15 mins, Trastevere 5 mins, Pantheon and Piazza Navona 5 mins etc..)

The rooms are clean and you have a nice balcony to sit on. Also, you have AC and wireless internet. The owners are more than accommodating, helping call taxis and to plan out your sightseeing experience. Great place.

If you are looking for a nice place to stay in the historic center of Rome, stay at Pettinary Village. We just returned home from our vacation in Italy and stayed at Pettinary Village for 3 nights. The room was small (completely normal for Europe) yet comfortable and very nice and we could not go wrong for the price. We had our own little kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and private balcony. The balcony opens up to a courtyard so it is very quiet yet very nice to have a private outdoor place to enjoy breakfast. Our room was cleaned and fresh towels provided each day. You can walk to all the historic sites of Rome including the Collosseum and Vatican City from Pettinary Village. It is also right off Campo di Fiori and very close distance to Piazza Navona, in my opinion, the nicest Piazza in Rome. If you come to Rome, you definitely want to stay in the historic center as there are so many interesting things to see and you can walk to them all. It is true when they say Rome is a living museum! The owners Ale and Fabiana were extremely helpful and they have the most adorable dog Hamlet. If you go to Rome, make sure you eat at a restaurant called The Library - best food we had on our entire trip to Italy!

This great little B&B is a real find for Rome. Located minutes from Campo di Fiori and within walking distance of all the major sites it could not be better located. The room is more than adequate for 2 people who are traveling light. There is not a lot of room for large bags. The small kitchen was stocked with all we needed to make breakfast each day with the provided food and had a good espresso machine and microwave. There is a grocery store 2 doors away if you need supplies for a picnic or to make dinner. Our room had a small balcony that was perfect for morning coffee and evening wine. It is a little hard to find till you figure things out, so just find the street then locate #73 and ring the bell. There is no lift. The wifi worked good as long has I opened the door. Must be those thick old walls! The family was very helpful with directions and suggestions and Hamlet the bulldog was a friendly greeter. There are lots of travel books and notes from previous guests. Would stay again without a doubt.

We stayed 1 week at Easter at Pettinary Village B&B at the room in no. 73.

It's located in the antique Rome very close to Piazza Campo de Fiori. Even though the square was fill with Young people partying whole night long we couldn't here anytning in the room.

The room has a fridge, espresso machine, water boiler, toaster and micro wave. Everything you need for breakfast. The breakfast was really good, and the fresh fruit is perfect.

There is a nice bathroom with a shower, which is big enough for normal size people.

The balcony is very nice, and a good place to enjoy the breakfast :-)

We only had one short watch on the TV channels, which by others included BBC world.

There is a little safebox, so you can lock your values in.

The bed is a double bed with a double bed duvet. It's a nice bed, so I slept from the Earth quake without any problems.

Finally Alessandro and Fabiana was really helpful together with a board with information from previously guest.

Reviewed 24 February 2009

My wife and I stayed in Ale and Fabiana's Pettinary Village apartment in February 2009, for 4 days. It was fantastic! There are two apartments, we stayed in the second, No. 78, just a few buildings up the street from Ale and Fabiana's, and the first apartment.

Location, location, location! The apartments are in Via dei Pettinari, 100 metres up from the Ponte Sisto bridge. The street is a popular walkway between Trastevere, across the Tiber, and Old Rome, and for people like ourselves who want to take Rome head on during the day, but then retreat from the busiest of the tourist areas in the evening, Pettinari is perfect. The street is home to numerous jewelry stores, a Carabinieri police office, a small bar and a fully stocked supermarket which is open till late. Although there's the occasional beggar, and out of hours the street is a little sleepy, we felt completely safe at all times.

How to find the apartment. We had no trouble finding Ale and Fabiana, as we had researched the location on google earth and Ale sent ahead a welcome email, with detailed directions, just before we left. We flew Ryanair into Ciampino, so for us the easiest and cheapest way to get to the apartment was to catch a Terravision bus (8 euro ticket from the Ciampino departures lounge, or on-line. 40 min. approx) to Rome Termini train station, then walk over to Piazza Barberini (15 min.), to Via Veneto in the northern corner of the piazza, where there are a number of bus stops just 10 metres up the hill. Facing downhill, jump on the small electric bus "116" which passes every 20-30 minutes and jump off at the Ponte Sisto bridge, bus stop "Giulia" (15 min., 2 euro ticket machine on the bus, stamp the ticket!). Walk 100 meters up Via dei Pettinari and you're there!

The apartment. The apartment was simply lovely. I can't think of a better way to describe it. Let me describe what we saw and how we felt as Fabiana showed us around the apartment. The first thing we noticed was that everything had a cottage feel and a woman's touch! A red ribbon around the towels in the basket, fresh flowers in the kitchen, chocolates on the pillows. We were actually celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, and we had mentioned this when booking. A bottle of Chianti and a hand-written card stood alongside the flowers! The apartment was spotless and beautifully decorated, with a lot of thought put into every aspect of the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and balcony.

The kitchen had absolutely everything we could want, and a continental breakfast, basket of fruit and fresh milk were provided each day. The dining table folded down from the wall, and hid lots of goodies like different flavours of tea, coffee, notepads and various other bits and pieces. On the top shelf there was a small but growing library of books, which we happily contributed to. The local supermarket was really good, though we didn't actually cook a formal meal in the room... how could we with Trastevere 2 mins in one direction, Campo dei Fiori 3 mins in the other direction, and the rest of Rome beyond that!!

The bathroom was pleasant and nicely decorated. It was only really large enough for one person at a time to do their bits properly, and although the small shower was a bit of a challenge for a large person, I soon got used to where my arms and legs needed to go! The water was hot and strong, and there were "wall mounted jacuzzi jets" that massaged all those "difficult to get to" places quite nicely! Everything in the bathroom was fresh and clean and had that special touch.

The main room had two chairs, a comfortable queen sized bed, a large wardrobe and a modern air conditioner/heater. On a shelf sat a wide-screen tv with satelite, and enough electronics to play CDs, DVDs, the radio, an iPod and even a USB stick, if memory serves me correctly.

Ale and Fabiana are lovely people, they speak English well and, most importantly, they care. This was our third trip to Rome, and Pettinari is the place we'll always stay from now on. And the same for our friends if we have anything to do with it!

Lovely. Just lovely.

great little spot, with a little balcony! Close to the river and central Rome, so it was easy to explore from here. One morning we woke early and strolled along the Tiber to the Vatican - beautiful!

Good coffee each morning too!
