“Enjoyable”
Reviewed 25 July 2010

I travelled to Rome for a short break with my children aged 16 and 10. Bernadetta emailed me with her phone number as to let her know when we would be in Rome as it is her business. We ended up waiting for her outside the b&b. There was road works at the bottom of the street. Bernadetta was full of apologies, of course and couldn't wait to get us off the street. You need to get up to the apartment via the lift, which only operates by closing the doors, if not it is over 80 steps you have to climb to get to the 4th floor where the apartment is. Once inside, Bernadetta gave me a set of keys, 1 for the front door, 1 for the apartment front door and one for our room. She also showed us the kitchen where there are a selection of buscuits, for breakfast! The room was spotless. As there were 3 of us there was a single bed and a double bed. A hanging rail for out clothes. A table and chair with kettle, tea, coffee etc and a few coffee tables dotted round the room. Breakfast was also on the table which was 3 pastries, 1 each. The bathroom was en-suite and that too was spotless with towels for each of us. There was a circular floor standing fan in the room too but if I'm honest it wasn't enough to cope with the heat but the weather is nothing that one can control.
It is in a noisy part of the City, but it is on top of everything which is ideal for all the sight seeing you have to do.
We did find a supermarket just round the corner that you can supplement the breakfast provided if you want to.
The only complaints I do have is that nothing was ever said about the method of payment for our stay. A note was left in the room asking for the cash to be left either the next day or the day after. So people have the cash ready do not expect to pay by debit or credit card. Also the shower was tempremental with it's temperature but there is a note left on the door explaining this but it's still a shock to the system.
Would i stay there again? Yes more than likely but not if I went in the summer again as air conditioning is needed!

This is not a Bed and Breakfast, breakfast is derisory. The room we got was so small it was not possible for two people to be standing at the one time. The double bed was two very old beds pushed together making for very uncomfortable nights sleep. The place is NOT clean. The shower is tiny and the minute bathroom floods, usually with cold water, when you use it. Avoid this place like the plaque, there are better places for the same cost.

The location cannot be beaten--just two blocks from Termini Station, but away from the hustle. Quick laundry, internet point, and several restaurants are within two blocks. There is street noise at night, but earplugs worked fine.
We travel with a wheelchair, and Benedetta did everything to help accommodate us--not an easy task in the center of a European city.
I have never seen rooms as cleaned and straightened up daily elsewhere.
We would definitely stay here again.

The location was good, however, extremely noisy at night.

The room and bathroom were both clean.

The owner is very nice.

The only complaint was there was no fresh fruit or fruit juices as advertised.

Other than that, it was a good place to stay short term.

Reviewed 30 November 2007

The rooms were very comfortable! The Location is so close to shopping and the Vatican. The entrance is a bit un-appealing, and the street that is is located on has no parking. Private parking was not free an was a five minute walk from the B&B. The breakfast was satisfactory, and is delivered to your room at your desired time. The manager was very helpful and easy to contact, he spoke English very well, which was very helpful. The rooms had a DVD player with a library of movies for rainy days. Internet was also provided in a private office for the guests! I'd recommend Best Place to anyone visiting the Vatican City.

  • Liked — the modern appeal
  • Disliked — the main entrance to the building

No air conditioning - too hot to sleep even in early June with fan on full blast and window open. Shower and toilet did not work properly. Other than that, everything else would have been OK but we had to move or not get any sleep at all.

  • Liked — Near main train station
  • Disliked — Toil and shower didn't work properly; too hot; no air conditioning

Best Place did not meet our expectations. Here were the good things:
-Bed cozy
-fridge was available
-kitchen available
-cookies free
Here were the bad parts:
-No owner present, we didn't speak to anyone in English when we checked in, and only briefly to an english speaking friend of the host to pay.
-Dirty blankets, scuffed walls, dirty shower
-breakfast: apples (first day only), packaged croissant, peach juice, packets of various hot drink mixes
-Washer (the reason we chose this hotel) said "do not use."
-very touchy water pressure/temperature in shower and sink
-tv- MTV only english channel (pretty typical for Italy)
-toiletries- no clean towels. no shampoo or soaps
-noisy. Every morning at 7am someone in the next room began pounding as if renovation was being done.
-no clock or wake up call service available.
We stayed 3 nights and were not happy. I wonder if we had the opportunity to speak with the owner if we would have had a better experience, since lots of people rated this place so high.
