Reviewed 15 March 2014

A little challenging to find the right door for the B & B but just two blocks from metro.easy access to the main sites. We walked everywhere as we wanted the exercise. Room was very clean adequate size, quiet neighborhood. but lots of activity, restaurants within two blocks. Wifi worked very well. Very friendly staff.

Room Tip: Did not get a balcony room, as the photos depicted. Our room had good window view with plenty of fr...

Clean, excellent location, good breakfast and nice staff. Only 3 bedrooms (they will give you the doors keys, including the building front door).
We stayed there for 2 days. Very good price - discount if you pay in cash.
Walking distance from Vatican and nice neighborhood.
The only point of attention is that, when we arrived, we got a little bit confused because the B&B is inside a building, like an apartment.

A perfect location for touring Rome. Near the Vatican and train station to all sights in Rome. The B&B is located on second floor of a residential building. Very modern with all amenities including free wifi. Breakfast served in your room enough food to feed a large family even if only a two people staying in room. A perfect place to enjoy all Rome has to offer.

This was my first trip to Rome. Although Sistine B&B was a bit far from the major tourist sites, it was close to a subway stop that provided cheap and efficient transportation to any other part of the city. There were many shops and restaurants a short walk from the B&B. Francesca arranged transportation from the cruise ship port to the B&B, and once on site, Irene couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful. The room was small, but comfortable and fit well within our budget. Drtomc

My wife and I spent 7 nights here. Francesca organized a private taxi for us @ 55 euros. We arrived in 45 minutes despite Rome's traffic. Irene the housekeeper fed us abundantly every morning with croissants, eggs, coffee, fruit etc.,..10 minutes on foot from the Vatican. Two street corners from the Metro. Dozens of small family run restaurants in walking distance. The double superior room we booked was a bargain and my only regret is not staying longer than 7 nights.

Reviewed 18 June 2012

I read a lot of fabulous reviews on trip advisor and booked the Sistine b&b but our stay was just about average. The place is good value for money given that we were travelling in the peak season. However, the air conditioner doesn't work well at all and the room was really hot. I didn't sleep very comfortably as a result.

The location is decent enough and is around 15-20 minutes walk from the Vatican. However, if you are out late (after 1130pm because that's when the metro shuts on most days) you will need to take a cab (10 euros from piaza navona).The breakfast is nice enough and it helps that you are served in your room.

I won't be going back again because when compared to our B&B in Rome.. this left a lot to be desired.

BestBBB, manager at Best Sistine B&B, responded to this review, 26 September 2013
I'm sorry that this guest didn't feel well. it is important not to change the setting of the air condition, that was made new in april 2012 and it works perfectly. the location is "Prati", one of the most beautifull, comfortable, and most desirable for all roman inhabitans, the best Sistine is located in an ancient building 1890, completely renewed 2 years ago, with red carpet at the entrance. To descrbe this location as "decent enough" is not correct. the metroo stops at 12 pm, and it is substitute from buses that make the same way all the night. it seems that these guests have a bb in Rome (compared with our bb in Rome...) so, maybe they have a good reason to write bad rewies. I remember to all our guest that me and my staff are always present to help and solve all kind of problems. a good day to everybody,
francesca
