I always use trip advisor to pick my hotels and almost everytime has been on the mark, but I must say I thought I was at the wrong hotel! Our welcome was fine, nothing exceptional. The location was fine for us because we like to walk, the room was large enough and the bed was good, but other than that... More

This nice little (only three rooms) B&B is located in a very nice area with many cafes and restaurants, and it's not far from both Villa Borghese and the city center. The bus is also near by, so the location is very good. Right across the street from the hotel there is a cafe called Tribeca, they have a basic... More

This is a nice B&B not far from the villa Borghese. Pros: - spacious rooms with big and comfortable bed - outside the vibrant historical city-center - very nice and friendly owner - restaurants, market and supermarkets around - bus stop very near Cons: - tiny bathroom, especially the shower - metro line B is 12min walk. Overall, nice place... More

L'Arca is a great value. The welcome is warm. The bed is comfortable. The hosts graciously share their knowledge of their city and how to navigate it.

i would recommend this B&B to any of my friends. if one day, you get to stay in l'Arca, you'll get a warm welcome! if you want to, the ladies of the reception can arrange a personal pick-up service from the airport, which is very comfortable and even cheaper than a regular taxi. the rooms @ l'Arca are very spatious...

I stayed at L'Arca for 4 days in May 2010. Location: very convenient in terms of getting there from/to Termini and only several bus stops from the Spanish Steps and all the tourist action. The flat is located on a quiet street near a bountiful market and small restaurants/cafes. Getting home by taxi from the centre cost me only 10... More

L'Arca B&B is in a lovely, charming older building - old elevator and a marble staircase to get you to the 2nd floor. The owner, Daniella, is the perfect hostess - she took 30 minutes to orient us to the city and major attractions when I first arrived with my two teenage daughters. Our room was very large, high ceilings,... More

The B&B L'Arca conveniently lies in the centre of Rome on Via Messina near Porta Pia, the famous gate designed by Michelangelo. Just a few steps from Via Veneto, Villa Borghese and Piazza Barberini, we take pride in offering our discerning guests a quality service and clean accommodation in a warm environment.The B&B is situated in a large apartment on the second floor of a well-kept building (with lift/elevator) that dates back to the early 1900s, well connected to the rest of the city via the metro and several bus routes, all of which allow you to easily reach the city's famous tourist sights. ... more   less
