Arrived in Rome after missing a connection and having one our suitcases lost - luckily we were stating at Small Luxury and things started to turn for the better. The room was clean, large and the bed was very comfortable. Maurizio could not have been more wonderful! He explained everything in the room and suggested a great place for dinner.... More

The view is amazing being able to see St Peters so clearly from the room makes the experience even more special. Grace provides an excellent and timely service. The breakfasts are ample and will keep you going for the day. The... More

What a fabulous apartment! Wonderful views of St Peters, excellent location, close to the metro. The apartment was clean and quite luxurious. You enter the building through huge wooden doors at street level and the quaintest elevator takes you up to the B&B. We loved the breakfast each morning that Grace prepared and bought to our room at the time... More

Just as others were, we were collected from the airport by Mariachiara, at a very reasonable price and quickly installed in a very comfortable room. Location was perfect, the room clean and the breakfast staff extremely pleasant and helpful. When it was noticed that we'd brought in our own fruit for breakfast, a bowl of fruit was provided the following... More

A very nice B&B in a great location in the heart of Rome. Lovely big rooms which are very nicely decorated and furnished with good quality bathrooms. The booking company had made a mistake with our booking and booked us in for the 9th July when it should have been for the 10th. We found this error on the 9th,... More

Staying in Prati

Neighborhood Profile
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.
