This little B&B was a surprising find in Rome. The staff was very helpful, the location is fantastic. It is also very close to many small, welcoming restaurants and shops. I think it may be the best value in Rome, loved it.

My wife and I had a great stay here. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and brought breakfast to our room every morning. Upon arriving Glen spent over 30 min showing us all the places to visit and making recommendations. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Stayed there one night before our trip back home. Glen greeted us and was very nice. The place is good, a bit of a smell but nothing really bad. Rooms are spacious but would need a reno soon (laminated floors chipping and peeling) the beds are springy and not the most comfortable. Be there before 6 or they will charge... More

fortunately Glenn was there when I arrived to check me in, but no one is around during the day to give advice on where to eat, how to navigate the city, etc. Breakfast is a cappuccino, juice box, individually wrapped pastry and toasts with nutella and jam; something you'd see from a hostel.

It's a budget place to live in Rome, so don't expect luxuries and professionalism as major hotels do. The stuff were pretty helpful with everything and the location of the residence is really close to great attractions in Rome. Also it's a 10' walk to the Termini - no need for taxis and buses to catch a train to the... More

The room was beautiful, it was 5 minutes walk from Cavour metro station, Luca, the employee who waited outside on the street for us when we were checking in, recommended us to this amazing local restaurant nearby called Trattoria Pizzeria and best of all, after a hot day, the AC cooled the room down in literally 2 minutes. We would... More

Photos of the place make it look like a huge 100 room hotel on a triangular corner of the city. It is on a triangular corner but only has 5 rooms. The size of the room was a bit small. The location is not the best as the street has hardly any foot traffic and get a bit creepy after... More

It's budget friendly, clean, spacious, great location with the most helpful and friendly staff imaginable. The air conditioning was definitely NEEDED in Rome and ours worked like a dream.

We stayed at this Inn for 4 nights and it was perfect for us! Very safe and clean, 5 minute walk to the nearest Metro station, 10 minute walk from central train station, and down the street from the stunning Santa Maria Maggiore Cathedral! Very accommodating staff! We missed our train and had to arrive in Rome at 11pm and... More

Staying in Monti

Neighborhood Profile
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
