I needed a place near the station for a short visit to Rome and was nervous about the neighborhood, but Maior is across from Santa Maria Maggiore on a busy enough street to feel safe and never isolated. I was pleased to find both my room and bathroom nicely decorated and immaculately clean. The staff take good care of settling... More

This was a lovely place to stay at. We stayed with our 21 month old son. It is a an old 1890s building so the room is big with a big washroom as well. We had a room overlooking the Santa Maria Maggiore. The place is very clean. It is less than 10 minute walk from Termini. If you are... More

This place is based in an excllent location right in the city.. (Walkable) to attractions such as the trevi fountain and the colloseum. The rooms are also great, extremly clean and modern! The maior is however difficult to find as not many locals were aware of its whereabouts. We would also suggest that you confirm your arrival/check in time at... More

This is an excellent B&B situated close to Termini Railway Station. The room were large, spotless and quite free of noise despite overlooking the street. Our host who welcomed us on arrival gave very good advice on where to eat in Rome. There is not much negative to relate. We thought the lighting in the room were good but extremely... More

This B&B was a really nice surprise as i had quite low expectations as it was a last minute booking. It is in a great location near termini so easy to walk from the station with luggage and easy enough to find just make sure you know what it looks like from the outside before you arrive as there is...

We were to take a cruise out of Civitavecchia and needed a hotel near Roma Termini. This hotel was exceptionally clean, with beautiful view (not all rooms I understand but we were lucky it was low season) to the Santa Maria Maggiore church, and perfect walking distance to the train station. Not to forget the attention of Mauro who was... More

Maior B&B is an incredible deal for the price: Lidia and her husband are super sweet and helpful, their location is a very short walk to Roma Termini, and the accomodations are very comfortable. The only downside is that the place can be a bit tricky to find. Navigate to Piazza di Santa Maria Maggiore, find the cafe across the... More

Well appointed rooms and convenient walking distance around Roma. Owner recommended excellent non-tourist restaurants. Especially enjoyed being next to the Santa Maria Maggiore church and within a traditional flat. We will stay here on our next visit to Roma!

By saying typically Roman, I mean that you are staying in the heart of this fabulous city in a large 19th century house, which ressembles an old palazzo. You can hear the bells of Santa Maria Maggiore and walk nearly everywhere by foot. The appartment itself is clean, the single room is large enough and had wooden furniture in retro... More
