I stay here 3 nights and it's the greatest bnb ever! Giacomo is very nice and helpful. You will definitely enjoy talking with him! Also, he's a generous host: free tea&italian coffee and fresh fruit 24h. This bnb is not located in a noisy tourist area, but absolutely safe and convenient : with several supermarkets around, a very good roman... More

Zen House is great! Clean, comfortable, cozy and safe place. I've been 1 night here and 2 nights in a property near Termini, even if termini area is more central, I really preferred the residential district of San Giovanni. Zen House is only 20 mins walking distance from Coliseum and Giacomo gives a map and good advices to get around,... More

Nice big room with plenty of space for clothes. Friendly and helpful host. Plenty of hot water and good shower. Breakfast when you want, just there when you need it, good coffee. A relaxing place to stay. Area round is ordinary Rome rather than the tourist centre which does mean a bit more walking but part of the fun is... More

My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon. While the room we stayed in was not the most private, Giacomo's hospitality more than made up for it. The B&B is tucked into a genuine Roman neighborhood, but the main sites are easily accessible via bus or subway. Giacomo gave us advice for how to get around, what to see,... More

It is very difficult to add anything to the reviews offered below, other than another voice. This is a fantastic base from which to explore Rome. It is tucked away in a real Roman neighbourhood and so gives a flavour of how locals live, but is close enough to explore the plentiful sights that Rome has to offer. Zen House... More

The host really makes this place, you feel like you are staying with a friend! We stayed in the green room, it was very clean and very comfortable. Don't forget though, this isn't purpose built. It's a house, so you are able to hear other rooms' doors opening and closing. Giacomo gave us such wonderful recommendations for sights to see... More

Zen House is a perfect B&B to stay at in Rome. The host, Giacomo, is a wonderful host. He was so kind to pick us up at the train station late at night, and then take us to a local pizza place, as we were starving from a long day traveling. The Zen House is tucked away in a real... More

This place was one of the highlights of Rome for me and my boyfriend: Quiet, clean, comfortable, wonderful breakfast and -most important- mangaged by Giacomo, who made us feel always welcome like a friend. We like him a lot! And there are two private, fully equiped bathrooms for totally just four guestrooms, so it's no problem to share them with... More
