“Lovely apartment and location”
Reviewed 13 December 2012

We stayed in the apartment for three nights in October, a perfect place to explore this wonderful City. We were welcomed on arrival even though it was late at night and were shown the best sites to visit on our stay.
The rooms were clean and spacious for 2 adults and 2 children with separate beds for the children a real bonus.
We ate out every night in the nearby restaurants and also felt safe walking around at night. The apartment is close to the Metro although we walked everywhere even to the Vatican and back!
Rome really is a fantastic place for a 2/3 night stay and if planned well you can visit most of the sites during this time without feeling rushed. Food as you would expect is great with a lovely ice cream parlour near the apartment.
Would highly recommend and stay again.

First of all the location of the apartment is great, just a two-minute walk from the Manzoni Metro Station, bus station and near (15' walk) the Colosseum. The apartment was cozy, fully furnished and equipped, just what you need after a tiring day in Rome. Now the service... Pierdavide (the owner) was always there for us, to cover or needs or just answer our tourist questions, replying our emails at once, even on 01:00. Wish everywhere the service was like this.
All in all, Obelus will definately be our first option when we visit Rome again.

Obelus is one of the best B&B in Rome. The location is not quite close to the Metro station so you can get from Termini to hotel easily. And we are quite impressed by the breakfast since most B&B had very simple breakfast but Obelus offer a continental style breakfast. Wifi is good. Room is very simple but good enough.

The location is great! The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are pretty basic and small (which is usual for many European hotels). The bathroom is OK (though some renovation would be welcome). The breakfast is adequate. Overall, it is a fine place to stay at in central Rome.

We stayed at Obelus in August 2012. We were very sad to leave! This place was amazing,. We got to Rome early and stopped by with our luggage. They let us leave our luggages and gave us tje room keys (since our room was not ready yet). When we came back to check in a few hours later, they already moved our luggage into our room.,We had everything in our room we needed hairdryier/air condition/safty box and mini bar(located in the kitchen).. They really took care of us to the highest degree. The breakfast was fresh/tasty and coffee was fantastic. Too bad we had to leave, but now we know a great place to stay when we come back to Rome
Everything was just perfrect (room,breakfast,location and air condition:)). The staff was incredible, a special thanks to Monica ) that she was very helpful in giving directions, advice... ecc
We will definitely come back.

Obelus was the best BB we stayed. Staff was very friendly, gave us many tips etc. Room was excellent, breakfasts OK, . Location of Obelus is very big advantage - 10 min walking to the Colosseum. During our stay we didn't use metro - almost everywhere you can go.

Due to personal and committed response from the hosts was our first encounter with Rome an extra memorable experience. Clean and fresh apartment without luxury at reasonable price, exellent (continental) breakfast served in the apartement, free wifi and lots of valuable advice from the hosts. We warmly recommend this B & B to our friends and others. Located close to local transports and just about ten minutes walk from the Colloseum.
