We were very pleased with the location, price and the staff (very helpful). However, the rooms are below grade. As a result the room was very damp and musty smelling. The sheets never felt dry. We had mold on the walls in some places. The shower door did not close properly, resulting in water on the bathroom floor. Our feet... More

Dear Guest we are sorry but perhaps you did not understand that our rooms were in the past ancient authentic Roman Cisterns.Our property is a unique and very special place. The floor of the rooms is made of original bricks of 2000 years ago and 'this is the reason why if you go barefoot you get dirty, but not because... More

I booked this Rifugio degli Artisti. and when asked by email,I estimated the time of arrival to the hotel. After a 10hours flight to Rome which was late, a long queuing up for non EU resident for passport control, and a shuttle which was late, I got out of the airport much later than expected. It was still 9pm in... More

On your reservation it is written that our latest check-in is at 6:30 pm but if the customer tells us an other check-in... More

After an early morning train from Sorrento to Naples & another from Naples to Rome, we were exhausted as we arrived. We dragged our suitcases through cobblestone streets as the temps began to soar into the 80's... But Nico made our stay great from the minute he threw open the door with a warm, "Ciao!" He bounded around, happily showing... More

Pros: Great location, smack in the middle of everything Great staff able to help with pretty much everything Nice pricing (we paid Euro 120/night for Room Nr. 2) for this location Cons: The rooms are in the basement which means you have no idea what the weather is like The TV was about 14 inch, smaller than on my computer......

Hi, we went there for 4 days for my fiancé 30's birthday as a surprise trip and we had the perfect stay. Booked directly with the property (Domenico) and the host was so charming and helpful. The guesthouse is located in the center and all major attractions are nearby. He knows how to treat well his guests. Well recommended!

The good: Nice and very charming B&B in the heart of Rome close to Piazza del Popolo and easy to reach by public transportation (just a five minute walk from Flaminio subway station). We stayed there in July when it was incredibly hot outside so we were thankful that the rooms are located in the basement and thus pleasantly cool.... More

As the headline suggests, these beds are the best I have slept in when staying at hotels in Rome. Its location is also superb in the old artists quarter (as the name of the hotel indicates) between the river, Via del Corso and Piazza del Popolo. The rooms (as well as the reception area) are cosy and tastefully decorated with... More

I had so much expectation going to Rufugi, but was unfortunatly disapointed... Here is why. First the goods: Location is great, near piazza del popolo and about 5 minutes walk from Flaminio subway station. This was our second time in Rome and we knew this neighbourhood felt very safe, even at night. We were welcomed by the owner, a young... More

I traveled alone from August 8th to 15th, 2013 in Rome and this little jewel in the heart of Rome was one of the highlights of my trip. The most charming, cozy, beautiful, perfectly situated little refuge you can hope to get in Rome. Walking distance to the major treasures of this gorgeous city, it is by far one of... More
