Antonella and Gli Scipioni are absolutely wonderful and I would stay here again. The location is great (less than a block from the subway), there is a decent restaurant right below, and I have a kitchen to store treats and cook breakfast, in addition to the tons of treats Antonella provides (including ice cream bars and great sandwich fixings).

So glad we decided to stay at this bed and breakfast. Everything is perfect, and clean. Antonella went out of her way and noticed it was my birthday so she brought me a bottle of champagne! Such a nice detail. We really enjoyed our stay here, it felt like it was our own apartment! Everything is closeby, walking distance.Greatly stocked... More

So glad we found this on Trip Advisor because it definitely lived up to the ratings and exceeded our expectations!! Antonelle (owner/manager) is a charming and extremely helpful hostess and did everything possible to make our stay even more enjoyable. There are only three 'suites' (each with private bath) so if you are in Rome during the high season you... More

First time to Rome and couldn't have asked for a better time. The B&B is in a perfect location with links to the main metro line and within walking distance to the Vatican City. The host, Antonella couldn't have been more helpful from the moment we got to the B&B she was waiting to assist us, whilst also highlighting on... More

Very near to the ottaviano metro station this B&B has good ambience, friendly staff and good basic breakfast. Though a bit overpriced compared to similar B&Bs in the locality its definitely good and worth staying.

My father and I stayed at Gli Scipioni on March and absolutely loved our stay. Antonella was beyond helpful, the place was kept incredibly clean and the fridge and pantry were always fully stocked. We had split up our stay in Rome and between stays we went off to Florence for a night. We asked Antonella if we could drop... More

We stayed for 4 nights and Antonella could not have been more helpful. We truly think we made the most of our trip helped by her useful tips. The accommodation was in a fantastic location allowing us to visit everywhere by foot (only using the underground once thankfully). Great supply of snacks which kept us going, funky decor and really... More

My wife and I stayed at Gli in Sept of 2014. This was the first time either of us stayed at a bed and breakfast so we were not sure what to expect. We were very pleasantly surprised. The accommodations were wonderful and Antonella was amazing to work with. From the booking all the way to our stay and while... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Gli Scipioni in July 2014 upon the recommendation of a friend who had stayed there several years prior. It was just a fabulous as she described. Antonella was the perfect host. She was so warm and friendly and very gracious. The B&B is like a 3-room flat with each bedroom having its own private... More

Staying in Prati

Neighborhood Profile
Prati
Just steps away from the chaos of the center, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighboring Borgo, Prati is a local favorite for its aesthetic organization and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
