The place is situated very well in Rome. By walking you get easyly to the most beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore or Santa Precede and Lateran and all the area to Sante Crce de Gerusaleme with the old wall. Also by walking the Forum Romanum is easily reachable. Very well connected to public transport. Room is small but clean... More

I stayed in Rome primarily to watch the Italy v England rugby game. This B&B is very well connected (near metro and termini rail station) and just 10 minute walk from the Colosseum. The host provided good recommendations for food and drinks and breakfast is good enough to start the day.

We visited Rome four times and the last three times we stayed here. I surely recommand this location, it's a great place to stay! Excellent value for money. The room was clean and the private bathroom was spotless. Due to the fact we have a little child (two years old now), a high level of hygiene it's a must. There... More

Great location, clean room, good bed, bad breakfast (but that's quite common in Italy). Our room was pretty noisy in the morning due to the coffee machine located in the kitchen. Helpful guidance from Luigi, the host. I would definitely improve the breakfast. Recommended.

The host, Luigi, was incredibly nice and was great at explaining all the touristic highlight Rome has to offer and how to avoid certain tourist traps. There's great WiFi in the room and the place also offers a basic but a very sufficient breakfast. The area is close to the Central station and is about a 10-15 minutes walking distance... More

Well located, cleaning and breakfast may be improved. Touristic orientation and guidance by Luigi was excellent, no problem to communicate with him in English. The area around is not so nice but is worth due to its location close to subway station and Termini central station.

English: I will book surely my next stay in Rome again at the Centre of the World. There are many reasons that lead me to think this: only one metro stop from Termini Station, an area really interesting and lively and typically "Rome style", and last but not least LUIGI! More than a manager of a B&B, He becomes a... More
