We stayed there on our honeymoon a few weeks ago...The location is great, it's just a few blocks from the beaten path, yet surprisingly quiet...Marta and Fernando go above and beyond to insure you a have an incredible Roman stay...The rooms are clean and spacious (beds could be a tad more comfortable and my only other bone to pick has...

Just returned from only staying 1 night after a cruise. I didn't expect such a well designed, charming, renovated (and VERY comfortable bed considering most beds in Italy are hard as a brick). All of the reviews are correct! Marta is perfection! She knows here stuff about restaurants, where to go etc.....she goes out of her way to make sure... More

I agree with all the reviews here. We visited in March for 3 nights and loved it. Couldn't have picked a better spot for our first trip to Rome. Our room and bathroom was beautiful, very comfortable and clean. Breakfast was fulfilling and delicious, and the coffee was the best we had in Italy. The service is outstanding and the... More

It's hard to add anything new to the previous incredible reviews from people who have stayed with Marta and Fernando, owners of Residenza Scipioni. They are all true. Beautiful renovated rooms within a charming old building, located in an interesting and lively residential neighborhood, close to everything. The attention to detail in the the room, bathroom, and breakfast room were... More

This B & B made our first trip to Rome a fantastic experience. Marta and Ferdinand were the best hosts. All the restaurants they recommended in the area were reasonably priced and the food and wine was excellent. Perfect location that was close to the metro and the Vatican. When we were having difficulty getting passes to the audience of... More

Marta and Fernando made our recent 3 day stay in Rome much more enjoyable. From airport transfer, restaurants, tour guides, nice rooms, breakfast, and local information they made things very easy. It was a pleasure to be around such nice people. Susan and Bill W

Scipioni's location is superb: just outside the centro storico (reached by foot or metro) and very close to the Vatican. A beautiful building located in a quiet street. Still a lot of very good restaurants and shops close by. Can be reached easily from the airport by taxi (€50 one way). An quite easy and much cheaper option is by... More

Approaching our first trip to Rome, we did extensive research on where to stay. As a result of the many great reviews of Residenza Scipioni, we decided this is was the place.

We stayed for 3 nights, location is quite central, 15 minutes walk from old city, 5 minutes from Vatican City. Nice new and clean rooms. Every day cleanup. Neighborhood quite and not busy.

We recently concluded our fantastic 5 night stay at Residenza Scipioni. We chose them based on the numerous TA reviews and its quiet, residential location near the Vatican--we were not disappointed on either account. Even before our trip, Marta's hospitality was demonstrated via her detailed emails with tour/restaurant advice; she helped make multiple reservations for us before our arrival and... More
