    We stayed 5 nights in the heart of Rome and this hotel made our trip so great, everything is at walking distance and the advice given by the owners (both on visits and restaurants) is extremely valuable! It makes all the difference and enables to have a wonderful experience! highly recommended!

    What a wonderful surprise in Rome!

    The hotel is wonderfully decorated with antiques and frescoes, giving visitors a feeling like they are visiting a special place. They are, in fact, because the owners are probably two of the most wonderful people in Italy -- so friendly, caring, kind, and helpful.

    The rooms come with a complete buffet selection of minibar and drink choices... All at a very reasonable price (cheaper than some cafes).

    The location couldn't be better -- walking distance to every single Roman sight including the Vatican, Pantheon, Colosseum, and churches.

    The one thing that could be improved is wifi access throughout the hotel. They have it, but it's weak in some of the rooms.

    Excellent value for money and an awesome place to stay.

    Room Tip: Any room is likely perfect.

    Our room was small but it had everything we needed. We stayed three nights. The hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Rome. From there most of the touristic areas are within walking distance: Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Fontana di Trevi, Piazza Venezia, via del Corso, Fori romani and Colosseum are all within easy reach. You can also walk to St. Peter and the Vatican Museums, it is roughly a 25 min. walk. We never took the bus to go to see things. Also the popular Trastevere neighbourhood is within walking distance. Rooms have their en suite bathroom and a foot massage machine. Furthermore, the hosts are very kind and willing to give you all the useful tips a visitor needs. Michele is willing to tell you a lot about the secrets of Rome and what to see when you visit a church or a palace. We would recommend this small pension and we will return there next time.

    Very good service and thoughtful hosts. The hotel is clean and comfortable , providing everything one needs for a few days in Rome. In the centre of town , the hotel is within easy walking distance of the main piazzas and if you don't feel like walking there is a cab rank nearby.
    We would stay again

    Pensione Barrett is ideally located. We walked everywhere! We only took the bus from the Station and back and an electric bus to Villa Borghese (to save time), everything else, we walked.

    The Area Sacra (where Julius Ceasar was murdered) is right opposite the Pensione and now houses a lovely Cat Sanctuary on its premises.

    The Room was on the smaller side, but filled with every convenience. We never tried the TV, but we used the back and foot massage daily and truly appreciated them given how much we were walking around town.

    The bathroom was compact, but had everything we needed.

    There were all kinds of breads, cheese, meat etc to fix breakfast if we wanted to. But we like our breakfasts hot, so we ended up eating breakfast on the go from one of the many bakeries around on most days. However , my husband did have a coffee each morning and loved the coffee machine in the room. One of the days, he even tried the croissants and said that they were excellent.

    Michael was extremely helpful, when we met him (we started most days before 8am and returned after 10pm) and we weren't disappointed with any of his recommendations. They were all excellent. The restaurant he recommended near Santa Scala was brilliant. We were in 2 minds about visiting some locations and he gave us a very clear description about what to expect, which helped clear our thoughts.

    However, the restaurant that the night manager recommended in the vicinity turned out to be a disappointment. I'd go with Michael's recommendations blindly, but not the managers.

    While we did have help carrying our luggage up to the second floor on the day we arrived, there wasn't anyone to help us carry our luggage down on the day we left. So do keep that in mind when packing/booking.

    They charge extra 10Euro/day for air conditioning, which we thought was worth it, given that there are no ceiling or pedestal fans in any of the hotel rooms in Italy.

    Rooms are cleaned daily and I think we were given fresh towels daily too. We had booked a double room, but were given a room with a third bed which was helpful for opening our luggage, I'm not sure how much space for luggage there is in the other rooms though.

    We will definitely stay here when we return to Rome.

    Room Tip: We chose the room overlooking the Area Sacra and used the Air Conditioning. Street Noise was not a problem for us at all. (but we are reasonably heavy sleepers)
