“Great room, good location, lovely breakfast and service”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Booked the Sistine after travel magazine recommended their sister B&B, which was not available for the 3 nights we wished. We were not disappointed. Good location, easy to find from the metro and we were met after giving the time of our train arrival. Room clean and very pleasant. Good value for money.
Lovely breakfast served in your room with a good choice of both hot and cold, a good hearty breakfast to keep us going most of the day. Staff friendly, rooms cleaned to a high standard. Would go back. Wifi excellent.

My first impression on entering our room was that of disappointment. On entering the bathroom the disappointment rapidly became dismay! The photographs on the hotel website belie the actuality and, misrepresent the quality of the accommodation massively! They have so obviously not been updated for a few years, as my photos show. On a positive note, Irene, who meets and greets and prepares the breakfast is lovely. The beds are also very comfortable and, the bedlinen clean and fresh. That said, it does not make up for the excess mould that exists all around the shower cubicle, the shower doors not meeting, the mould around the cistern, the toilet lid being cut in half in order to accommodate some sort of fit, the gaping hole in the wall where an air conditioning unit has been fitted without the plaster being made good afterwards, the quality of the towels and, generally the very tired overall impression. I have been to Rome on 4 occasions and, though this was not by any means the cheapest accommodation I have stayed in, it really was the worst! Such a shame as a little time and money being spent would bring it back to acceptable levels. I have no idea how this hotel has been given the accolades it has - it was purely down to previous reviews that Best Sistine was booked - a huge mistake!

This was our third stay at B&B Sistine. All the personnel are all very helpful and endorse my view that all of the "Best" establishments would make a stay in Rome a pleasurable experience.

The breakfasts are excellent and enhanced by the warm smile and great presentation afforded by Irina each morning.

It's like having your own apartment in the Prati district of Rome!

Lovely & clean rooms, clean & comfortable beds & the rooms are quite a nice size, although be aware shower cubicle is on the small side. The breakfast is fantastic, choice of cereals, fruit, cold meats & cheeses, croissants etc & Irene was a lovely lady who brought it to our room every morning, on a trolley.
The location is very close to 2 metro stations, 10 mins walk from Vatican City & within walking distance of all major attractions (although we caught the metro to the Colosseum & walked back)
Free Wi-Fi is very reliable & much appreciated. There are some good local shops, restaurants & pubs close by, had a couple of drinks in the cafe right below which we thought was very expensive, so avoid if I were you.
We stayed in room 3 which was on the side of the building, & was a little smaller than room 1 which has a balcony & is on the corner of the building, cant comment on room 2, would recommend staying in either of these rooms & definitely stay in this B&B if going to Rome.

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.
