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

This was the best accommodation my sister and I have stayed in on our several month trek across Europe. 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. The breakfast was great and the staff were so willing to help... More

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

We stayed at the Cesare Balbo Inn for four nights in the beginning of our two-week Italy trip and two nights at the end. Our experience was fantastic! The rooms are spacious, even for our family of four (two adults, a teenager and a "tween"). Rooms are clean, with soft sheets, warm blankets and comforters, and large fluffy white towels... More

The Cesare Balbo Inn is a (family) friendly pension located in the historic center of Rome, where you get value for your money. We stayed 4 nights with my family (5 persons). The pension is clean, the personnel is competent and friendly. Top location: Walking distance to several historic sites and the underground, with restaurants around the corner. Best regards... More

so well placed for a visit to Rome. The area is full of quaint cobbled streets with numerous little places to eat. Colosseum, Forum etc only 10 mins walk away. Also well placed for the metro. Luca is very helpful and saved us a lot of hassle trying to find the best way to get to the places we wanted... More

We found this to be a wonderful location with lots of great local restaurants within walking distance. Luca and Glen went out of their way to make us feel welcome, and helped us plan a stress free visit during a very busy time of the canonization. I emailed Luca the owner and he reserved us many site times which allowed... More

We stayed here with 2 kids (including 1 large teenager). The room was great with 1 double and 2 single proper beds so nice and comfortable. Location is excellent, just down the road from the Colosseum which was nice for an evening walk. There are plenty of great little restaurants round the hotel and I have added a review for... More
