When you stay here, Francois and Melissa truly make you feel like you have a friend in Rome! They are very thoughtful (we arrived on a warm day, Francois was at the sidewalk waiting to let us in, immediately gave us each a glass of ice water. (that doesn't happen much in Europe) They were great with ideas for restaurants... More

We had a wonderful stay here; the location is perfect for the ancient Rome attractions. Francois was kind, friendly, and helpful. The room is perfect; bathroom is very nice! Would absolutely stay here again when we visit Rome in the future!

Great place to stay. Near the Coliseum and Forum. Good restaurants and gelato within easy walking distance. Francoise & Melissa were friendly and accommodating. Next time in Rome --- we will definitely be back....!!!!

Stayed here on the strength of the recommendation of my parents who stayed 6 years ago for their 40th wedding anniversary (booked at the time by us kids!!). Fantastic location (just 5 mins walk from Rome's most famous attraction - the Colosseum). Melissa and Francois are by far the friendliest and most helpful hosts I have ever had the pleasure... More

Walking down the street trying to find the hotel we were greeted by this very friendly young lady who just happened to be Melissa looking for us and takes us up to our room, turns on our a/c for us and gets us cold glass of water. She was very friendly, helpful and suggested 3 places within a couple of... More

We stayed at Nicolas Inn the last full week of September with another couple. It is the perfect place to stay while in Rome, within walking distance of everything you want to visit. Melissa and Francois are perfect hosts and assisted us with tours, cabs and fantastic restaurant recommendations. They were in every morning to check on us. The café... More

My husband and I stayed here for our two nights in Rome, based off a recommendation in the Rick Steves' guidebook, and we consider it the best hotel we stayed at for our entire trip! The room was comfortable, spacious, clean, and included air conditioning (great after a hot Roman day of sightseeing). The hotel is also just a few... More

We stayed at the Nicolas Inn for three nights. Francois and Melissa could not be more helpful, gracious, or attentive. They were happy to answer all of our questions, and they had great suggestions for eating, transportation, etc. The Nicolas Inn is close to ancient Rome and so is within easy walking distance of the Colosseum, the Forum, etc. Our...

Can't say enough good things about our experience at Nicholas Inn. The close proximity to tourist areas and clean rooms were great (and were extremely important to my wife). But what put the experience "over the top" was our host, Melissa's excellent knowledge of good food. We literally ate our way through Rome following her excellent advice on both local... More
