A friend recommended this hostel to us and I'm so pleased we took it up. Friendly, cosy, plenty of bathrooms, onsite cafe & so close to the main train station. Was really easy to navigate from here and so many great places to eat literally 2 mins away. Rooms are big, beds are cosy & equipped with fans for hot... More

Recently we stayed at the Beehive in Rome, and it was a great experience. We rented two rooms in "The Sweets" for our family of 5. Each room had a private bath and a small balcony. The location is very close to the Termini which made it easy for arriving and departing, as well as heading out to Rome through... More

We have stayed here before and found it to be a great little place on a budget. This time we were place in a sweet around the corner and were pleasantly surprised. The room has a balcony onto the street a lift to save you dragging bags up the stairs and the room is good size. The bathroom is modern... More

Enjoyed my stay at the Beehive. The staff were very helpful and the room was just fine for me. It was quiet and comfortable. It was near several good restaurants and just two blocks from Termini station which is a transportation hub. I did not need a taxi to take me to the train station when I was ready to... More

Stayed in the dorm here and it was lovely. Clean, big and airy. Personal lights and pockets to put things by your bed were a great extra touch. Staff were lovely. Garden was great and hotel had a lovely tranquil vibe. Cafe was excellent, had breakfast there every morning. Cheap, yummy healthy food. Would definitely stay again.

Accommodations were very sparse and simple (I had a single room with private bath in The Sweets); however, the Beehive provides a friendly (both eco and human!) environment for weary travelers looking for conversation with other travelers and easy access to train station. I would recommend this place to anyone on a budget looking for comfort and ease.

I cannot compliment this place enough! I stayed in the dorm room which had 8 beds but the room was huge so you didn't feel like you were suffocated (i've been in hostels where they made me claustrophobic). Great location as it's minutes away from Roma Termini and the staff was very informative and friendly! If i ever come back... More

Our family of three spent three nights at the Beehive in early May. Our first night was in the 8 bed mixed dorm, and the last two nights we were in the Sweets. The staff was extremely helpful. They provided us with sound advice for the way to spend our time in Rome in order to make best use of... More

This hotel was very comfortable. The American owners have created environmentally friendly accommodations for tourists in Rome. The owner was very friendly and directed us to several great restaurants and unusual sights. It is located near Roma Termini which has access to the metro and trains. The cafe downstairs has great food and actually offers milk alternatives. The only downside... More

Dear Celeste H, thank you very much for your kind words - I'm very glad you enjoyed your stay with us. One thing I did want to clarify for any potential guests reading your review is that while we do have private rooms with shared bathroom like the one you stayed in, we also have private rooms with private bathroom....

We stayed in the Sweets for only one night. It was hard to find the reception and we walked past the door to the Sweets a couple of times. It's in a building with other people in apartments and I felt bad if I made noise as there were notices up to be considerate. There was an iPad we could... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Beehive is a stylish, budget, eco-conscious hotel/hostel owned by an American couple, Linda & Steve, who came to Rome to follow a dream. In 1999 we packed up our apartment in Los Angeles and, along with our 2 cats moved to Rome and opened The Beehive, a unique cross between a budget hotel and an upscale hostel - a place where you can feel at home. Everything about The Beehive Hotel reflects our own personal values - we're conscious about the environment, passionate about social issues, and genuinely want to be helpful and hospitable. We love to share the kind of information that helps you get the most out of your travels. Over the years The Beehive has evolved along with us and our many repeat guests. With our amazing onsite staff and manager, all of our guests receive our dedication and effort to helping you get the best out of your holiday. As always, we want you to know you have a safe haven and friends in Rome. ... more   less
