Very good upkeep, comfortable beds, modern bathroom (friendly owner made a point of showing off new in-toilet bidet, but anyway) Lift available, close to Termini (3-4min walk) and a couple of nice restaurants/ gelatarias nearby. Definitely perfect for a base to explore rome and surrounding area.

Friendly owner and staff, although emails prior to arrival did not receive responses. Location and WiFi connection were both good. Ok for a couple of days, not longer. Very small room. Shower doors coming off and rusty soap wrack. Worn-out towels with stains. Breakfast insufficient for a morning of sightseeing and it's served between 8am-9am only!

The B&B Alexander is a short walk to the main train station in Rome. It was easy to find, had a small lift to the 2nd floor and was clean. There was no street noise, and we had comfortable beds. Our hostess spoke English and provided a simple but satisfying breakfast. The owner was very helpful as he tried to... More

We have family trip to Rome and after few days of the selection we pick up the BB Alexander. We arrived at the room in the afternoon and Mr. Barbone, great gentlemen, was waiting. Immediately, he gave us the basic instruction and keys of the main entrance door as well as room. Room was clean and comfortable with nice bathroom.... More

While traveling with my girlfriend, we are always looking for places that fit at least three of the following four criteria: 1) safe area (top priority), 2) reasonably priced, 3) clean & cozy, 4) good location. Luckily, B&B Alexander fit all four! PROS: - Very clean & cozy (beautifully remodeled) - Great location - 5-10 minute walk away from Terimini... More

Stayed there for a night... Requested for early check in @ 6am and they were expecting us.. Small and cosy room.... Shower area is very small and if you are about 1.75cm and above, you may have some difficulties using the shower area...

As girls traveling alone, my sister & I wanted a B&B experience, for economic, safety, friendly more personal service, & accessibility reasons. This place provided it all to an excellent degree. The room was spacious & comfortable (Tulipano room) with a balcony that opened to the rear and allowed us to let the morning air and sunshine in. It felt... More

B&B Corte dei Fiori is located a short walk from the train station and two metro stations. Every important place can hence be easily reached from the B&B. Rooms were clean, appartments seem to be renovated recently and breakfast in the morning served in your room. Only negative point I could think of for this B&B is the bed: for... More

I had vowed never to stay in this particular street again after a bad experience further down the road 3 years ago. I gave corte Dei Fiori a go based on Trip Advisor reviews and their website photos. I was pleasantly surprised. The Rooms are located on the second floor (with elevator) of an appartment building 5 minutes from the... More
