I spent four nights at Il Boom B&B on a city trip to Rome. Angelo was very welcoming and always there to answer any questions. I had a spacious room with lots of closet space and ample electricity plugs to charge all of my electronic devices (this is important to me). Instead of a small ensuite bathroom, I had a... More

I booked to stay in The Sophia Loren for my boyfriends 30th birthday in February 2014 and would highly recommend this bed and breakfast for couples wanting a unique Rome experience. This was our first trip to Rome and we loved every minute of it. IL BOOM is an absolutely beautiful property, with very clean stylish rooms and a lovely... More

My girlfriend had treated me to a trip to Rome for my 30th birthday; my only input allowed was in the selecting process for where we would stay. What a decision we made!! Angelo was super attentive and helpful from the moment he met us on the stairs to carry our bags into his perfect little B&B. Clean, bright, fantastic... More

I would highly recommend staying at this unique and beautiful place. It is very stylish, fun and comfortable. The décor was exquisite, the owner helpful, the location convenient and the accommodation delightful. The B and B is also connected with a nearby restaurant so make sure to check that out as well. We had the most delicious brunch there!

Following a business trip in Florence, I spent a few vacation days in Rome at Il Boom in November 2014. I have stayed in many different areas of Rome over the years, as a student living near Campo dei Fiori and later as a professional living in Testaccio. However, this may well be my favorite place to stay in Rome... More

Situated in the recidencial area of Trastevere, this is a perfect little B&B to live like a Roman. We stayed here for 7 nights in total, and travelled with our 1 year old child. We enjoyed it immensely. The two story appartment, where Angelo lives is tastfully decorated with objects from the 50's and 60's. There are 3 rooms, and... More

Angelo no doubt has one of Romes most special B&B:s - so glad we could stay with him when in Rome. The location is excellent, just a few steps above the buzz in Trastevere, close to all restaurants and bars. Since the building is halfway up Giancolo Hill, and is a double storey top floor penthouse apartment, the views from... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
