Booked online with American Express credit card which their website claimed they accepted. They then refused our payment and cancelled our booking. Two weeks later they charged us anyway with a NO SHOW. Fraudulently charged us $350 (on the same credit card they claimed not to accept!) and were unwilling to answer any questions nor refund us in any way.... More

I've stayed at Matisse three or four times now and had a pleasant stay every single time. I even brought my parents there. The B&B is a no thrills bed and breakfast with clean rooms and a very central location near the metro station. The only bad experience I had last year was a smoking couple in the room next... More

We had an awful experience in this hotel. Room was small, warm and not very clean and had a very bad smell like rotten cheese -YUK! When we complained they basically said "too bad" and made no efforts to change anything. We also felt very unsafe and worried about thieves in this shabby place.

This was the second time to stay at the B&B owned by Matisse Properties (last year we stayed at Nakissa Inn near the Colosseo and the Roman Forum and liked it very much!) . This time, we chose Matisse B&B for it's central location in the heart of Rome at via Nazionale. So, here we were back again to Roberto,... More

The hotel is basic, but perfectly fine for a short stay in Rome when most of your time will be spent out sightseeing anyway. Food/drink available throughout the day, clean, has free wi-fi and conveniently located for the main tourist attractions.

Be aware! You book for a low price to have a room in Nazionale street and then they bring you to another B&B ...very near from Colosseum but It was not what you choose. Very Unfair!!! The reason? I think to be sure that rooms are full into the two structeres they have.

Stayed one day, flew to Paris for a week and left our baggage with Roberto. (Thank you again Roberto), flew back to Rome and grabbed our luggage then went on a cruise ( be sure to arrive in Rome the day before your cruise, we caught the train at Termini to Civitaveccia and arrived in time to take a taxi...

Ideal for position, easy to reach all the main sites. Let the B&B know what time you are arriving , it makes it easier to book in. Check that you have tea making facilities, when you check in. The annex is only about 100 metres away, nice and private.

We really recommend this place. It is absolutely value for money. There is an excellent service - the host Roberto is very helpful. He gave us great tips about the best places to see and restaurants. The room was OK - big and clean. This hotel is very close to Termini Station (about 10 min. on foot). Moreover, it takes... More
