This place almost totally spoiled my stay in Rome. I arrived late, about 9p.m. There was no one to open the door and i had to call the number written in confirmation letter. After 10 minuter waiting the host arrived and he informed that the room i booked not avaliable due to overbooking. Instead he offered another one next street,... More

Stayed here 8yrs ago and really enjoyed it!! 8yrs later and no change.. Had another really great stay at Matisse. Even at 1am Roberto was very welcoming and took the time to chat with us.... Room was right on the street but the 2 lots of double glazing were like Bose 'noise cancelling technology' and couldn't hear a mouse whisper.... More

I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a cheap but clean and comfort bed and breakfast hotel. The owner of the hotel was a friendly and helpful person. We staied in this hotel for two nights in august 2014 and we were very satisfied about price/quality.

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.
