“a great stay in rome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013

this accommodation was was very good value. we were within walking distance of all the main attractions of Rome (we are a young couple and like walking) but was also very close to a metro station. gianlorenzo was a great host and gave us lots of tips about the area. the bedroom was quite big with access to a shared bathroom (with one other room so we never had to wait) and to a shared kitchen. there were several supermarkets very close by and lots of good places to eat. we would definately stay here again and recommend to anyone travelling to Rome.

Big bedrooms with a lovely balcony and view over the Testaccio area. Friendly host. We booked in early and the host took care of our luggage.
Markets, restaurants etc around the corner and some just accross the street.
Bus station a few metres away and the train station around the block.
We couldn’t ask for a better place to stay for our most memorable visit in Italy ever and we have been to Italy a few times.

Very tidy. Breakfast just a roll and coffee. You're pretty much staying in someone's apartment (yes, it's a bed and breakfast), but you kind of feel like it, too. You feel guilty making any noise past 9 p.m. because you're in with a lot of older folk....and it's a bit hard to find, but it sufficed. Nothing remarkable. You should only use this place if you're traveling with family or friends--only 2 rooms and a shared bathroom and you can hear everything that's going on in the bathroom--not a problem between friends or family but......

I found out about this B&B through someone who had stayed here and can highly recommend it. Since it is close to the Forum (about 5 minutes walk from Pyramid Metro Station which is two stops from Coliseum) and was extremely reasonably priced, my expectations weren't high - this being Rome - but I was very pleasantly surprised.

The B&B has two bedrooms, each with a large double bed, located in a roomy and light apartment with good views of the city. The two rooms share a bathroom which has a tub and shower. Every room has a balcony, including the dining room, and breakfast is prepared by Gianlorenzo - the owner of the apartment. He stays in another section of the apartment but it's completely separate from the guest rooms.

He prepares whatever you like for breakfast, and made sure to go out in the early morning to purchase the yogurt we had requested. We were also allowed to use the fridge.

Gianlorenzo and his mother were extremely nice and helpful and we would never have found our car rental return office if she hadn't got on the phone and made several calls for us. The apartment was tricky to find as it was our first time driving in Rome and we didn't have a good map. We used the Metro after that. There is also a train by the Pyramid Metro station that goes directly to Fiumicino Airport - which saves you 40 Euro cab fare. There's a cheap Internet café by the Metro station - 1 Euro for 60")

The cost of the room was 60 Euros a night for a double and 45 Euro for a single.

Gianlorenzo recommended a great neighborhood restaurant which was packed with Italian families. It's called the Bucatino and had a wonderful all you can eat antipasto buffet for Euro 5.50.
