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

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
