I've read some of the damning reviews of this little B&B and just can't relate to them. We had room 2 which was fine for a family of 4, which we are. We needed somewhere to sleep and keep our gear in while we explored Rome and not a hotel in which to hide all day. The room had an... More

Clean room in a great location. Limited choice for breakfast but what we expected. Short walk to the nearest metro and very close to collesseum and the main train station. Room decor could do with an update and the bathroom is very small but clean and comfortable for a short stay in rome

This is a B&B, not a hotel : don't be scared if you don't see any sign in the street : ring at the door on number 211 of Via Cavour. Great location : Cavour Metro station is 50m from the door, and the B&B is 15' walk from the Colosseo The B&B is on the 5th floor with a... More

Location is the only good point of this B&B ( near Colosseum and very close to metro station) . We could not sleep because of the noise...it seems that, on top of the current noise of Via Cavour, an emergency hospital is located near by...

Strategically located, good quality-price, I could say this hostel is one of the best option for a short stay in Roma. I'm my opinion, specially interesting for students or young couples. From this centric hostel, only a few meters from the Colosseo, I've easily visited the city, taking advantage of the really close metro station, and feeling safe when coming... More

I stayed at the hotel with my wife and daughter. We are about average size but the opening into the shower was so small we could only just squeeze through. There were no knives to spread the butter and the caretakers did not speak English so it was very hard to communicate

We were very pleased with the hotel. The room and en-suite were clean and tidied and cleaned on a daily basis during our stay. We were made very welcome and a taxi was booked for our return flight with no problems. Access to a computer and the internet were available at no extra charge. The continental breakfast was adequate and... More

We stayed here in March of 2012, and found it to be clean, friendly and with a PERFECT location for exploring the Colosseum end of town. When we first walked in the windows were open for fresh air and I thought, "Oh, no. It's going to be so noisy on this major road." But as soon as you close the... More

we stayed there for two nights last month. the place was what we have expected - basic, simple, totally acceptable and reasonably priced. if you don't expect a 'hotel' with amenities etc., then this is a fine place. location was comfortable - a bit of a walk from the old down down, but busses are right there and take you...
