“At Home in Roma”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2008

Charming and comfortable B & B in great location within 5 minutes or less walk to the Vatican museums, Piazza San Pietro, and the bus to take you to the Piazza Navona, Piazza Del Poppolo from there you can walk anywhere..or just walk! Roma is an easy city to walk in and Il Cupolone is close to everything.
The best feature of Il Cupolone is the owner Gianni, he is a native of Rome and lives in the neighborhood...knows everyone and everything you need to know and gives great tips on restraunts, directions and tips on places you must see. He makes coffee how you like it each morning and his wife makes a fresh Roman style breakfast cake. Gianni will bring you breakfast in your room if you like but I enjoyed most talking with him and occassionally other visitors to Rome. Great value for the location, the comfort and the owner, Gianni...
I plan to return as soon as possible!

This is an excellent place to stay if you are on a budget and want to be away from all of the tourist hotels. The location is wonderful in that it is in walking distance of Vatican City and close to bus stops and the Underground. The B&B structure is different from the USA in that you actually stay in someone's apartment home and not a large house. This setup is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment/condo. One room has a private bath and the other two rooms share a bath. I had the shared bath and it only got annoying when the other guests stayed in the bathroom for a few hours and left a lot of their personal items sitting out. That is the only reason I give this place 4 stars instead of 5. This only happened one night, and for the most part, it was not a major issue. The shower had plenty of hot water and it felt great!

As far as the host, Gianni, he was wonderful. He gives many suggestions for food and sight seeing and getting around Rome. I found him to be amazingly kind and very friendly! His breakfast was a typical Italian breakfast that he prepares and brings to your room. He serves juice, coffee, tea, bread, yogurt, jams, and his wife's lemon cake.

Overall, the place is very clean and well kept. The rooms are large with a great A/C unit. The area is nice and not filled with a lot of tourist. There is a place across the street and close to the bus stop that serves great Peach gelato!

If you need a place to stay in Rome and especially near all the major tourists spots, please don't look any further, this is the B&B you need to book. Bus 64 drives through this street. The rooms are clean and spacious, very quiet, breakfast with a home baked cake and a very friendly owner ( Gianni ) who really makes you feel at home. The B&B is located very close to St. Peter and this gives you the chance to visit it a couple of times, since the church is really huge. We are really satisfied with our choice staying at Il Cupolone.
