Althea Inn sits on the border of the lively inner southern suburbs of Testaccio and Ostiense. It's a non-touristy area, with plenty of good places to eat, drink and be merry, and to see and talk to local people. It's only a football-kick to the metro station (two more stops to the Colosseum and four to Termini) and from the... More

This is a lovely B&B . the owner's attention to detail is amazing and he is very helpful with sightseeing info. The neighborhood is quirky but very near the metro. A market is a few steps away. Bring cash to pay your bill.

Althea Inn is a wonderful place to stay - clean, quiet comfortable rooms, wonderful breakfasts, and very friendly and helpful host. The neighborhood is non-touristy with great places to eat and easy access to transportation. This was our second time staying here, and I hope to come again.

The Althea Inn and Maison Althea are completely different, even though they are on the same floor of the same building and are run by the same person! Alessandro, the proprietor, is devoted to providing an outstanding guest experience - whether you stay in Althea Inn or Maison Althea!

This is a wonderful B&B... we had a large beautifully decorated bedroom with a nice balcony full of plants, we had breakfast there every morning. After a busy day of sightseeing in Rome it was great to have a tranquil place to come back to. We had a good breakfast where we were asked what we would like to have...... More

We stayed at Maison Althea which is in the same building as Althea Inn. Our host Allesandro was extremely helpful, providing us with a wealth of information before we even arrived. The best part about this B&B is its location. It is in Testaccio, a quiet residential neighbourhood close to the centre of Rome. The metro is just a 5... More

Thank you to owner Alessandro for his considerate attentions and thoughtfullness! Wonderful place to stay at, impeccable amenities, delightful private terrace and great location (walking distance to Pyramide métro station and Ostiense train station for quick access to all Roman sights, Fiumicino Airport and even Civitavecchia ship terminal). While the neighborhood is not touristy, it is dynamic and offers very... More

We spent almost a week at Althea Inn. It is a room on the top floor of an apartment building. The room was modern, and very clean. It had a terrace where we took our breakfast, which was brought to us by Alessandro, the owner. He was very nice and accommodating. Prior to our trip he gave us plenty of... More

Even armed with a trusty Rick Steves' Guidebook a first visit to Rome can be quite daunting - what sights to see in a limited time - how to get around - where to stay? For ease of arrival, departure and access to the sights of Rome the Althea Inn proved to be the perfect place to set up "base... More

We have just spent 5 enchanting days at Althea Inn. Look no further for a peaceful, romantic hideaway just steps from excellent restaurants, the train to the airport or CivitaVecchia (cruise terminal for Rome), subway to Colosseum (two stops, close enough to walk home from if you are spry:) supermarket for wines, beer and picnic supplies, bank machine, great gelato,...
