4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013

We stayed in two-bedroom apartment during our visit to Rome and it was very comfortable and nice. Check in was easy, breakfast was lovely and bedrooms were separated by bath and kitchen, which was nice. We enjoyed the owners a lot; they were very friendly and laid back. I agree with some other viewers that it could use some updating but I would rather stay in a place like Obelus that is convenient, private and spacious than a smaller, more up to date room. Thanks to the owners for all of their kindness. We would definitely stay here again.

The B&B is a good one, with excelent ratio price/quality. The fact that it was positioned in the center of the city, right near subway/bus/tram stops was excellent for us. The people over there are very kind and professional and kept all their promises.

Mery is a great host and the location is brilliant. Nice Tuscan design and very secure location. Everything you could want is literally right across the street. Mery is lovely to deal with and was exceptional with our check in and out. We would definitely stay again.

Stayed with my friends in this apartment that accommodates 5 individuals. I believe it was along Via Matteo Boiardo. The flat was very spacious. It has two bedrooms, a dining area, kitchen and bathroom. Although the flat is spacious, the decor and condition of the flat needs some renovation especially the bathroom. The bathroom was clean but the shower, toilet and sink are all very dated. The beds were clean and comfortable.

What I like about this flat is it has a lift. It was very useful especially at the end of the day when we were very tired from walking and had a lot of things to carry. I also liked that the owners of the flat responded fast when I emailed them with questions about the place and arranged a van service for us from Fiumicino.

This flat is approximately 5 minutes walk from the metro station. It's also walking distance to good restaurants like Merulana Cafe for brunch, Il Pasticciaccio and trattoria Vecchia Roma for dinner.

It's also approximately 15-minute walk to the infamous Colloseo.

If you are looking for a cheap spacious flat and do not mind about the decor, Obelus should be your pick.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Obelus B & B in Rome. We were put up in a quadruple room which was perfect for my husband and I and our two kids, aged 10 and 12. The room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent with cheese, meats, boiled eggs (one of the days), bread, croissants and coffee to fill yourself up on. The location is not central but is handy for the Manzoni metro and is only a 15 minute walk to the Colosseum. Monika was very helpful and gave us great recommendations for food and ice creams. We would go back!

Room Tip: Room one has one double and two single beds.

Stayed 4 nights in 2 bedroom apartment but did not enjoy our stay at all. There are a few pros - the apartment was spacious, had good wifi and was secure. Now for the cons - we were conned into paying extra for breakfast which was lousy. Breakfast was served in our room at 8am the same time each day whether we were asleep or had to leave early the lady didnt care take it or leave it. We had 3 TVs but none of them worked. the bathroom was old and broken - shower was blocked and overflowed. shower rose was broken. soap dispenser fell off, towel rail fell off. Washing machine was broken. Toaster was a danger and had bare wires coming out. You have to buy your own toilet paper and toiletries. Saucepans teflon coming off and could not use them or be poisoned. The twin beds in the second bedroom were portable fold aways with a fake wooden frame built around them to look like a proper bed! All up we were conned for the price we payed as it was a two star accomodation. The street noise was noisy and we all had disturbed sleep as a result. Be warned not to stay here unless they do a renovation on the place.
