The place is at the top of the Spanish steps so it is a good point to start exploring Rome (free tours start nearby on a daily basis). The host is very friendly and helping. There is a kitchen where you can have a coffee/tea whenever you like. Wifi is free. Overall, I felt at home :)

The location is fantastic, about a 45 second walk from the top of the Spanish Steps. About a 5 minute walk from Villa Borghese, and about a 10 minute walk from the Trevi fountain. We walked absolutely everywhere in Rome, but there is a subway station right at the Spanish Steps and several nearby bus routes. Staff is very friendly... More

This place is just around the corner from the top of the Spanish Steps and two minutes walk from Spagna metro station. This B&B is on the 1-st floor of the old apartment building. There are three rooms, clean and well maintained, different in layout. Our's was Livia, spacious enough to keep luggage in the corner and move freely around.... More

Great location , good price for Rome hotel. Right on the top of Spanish steps. Everything that you need for the short stay .Do not expect a full breakfast though . We still would have one outside of the hotel . But if you like cereal and good espresso ... you will get it .

We stayed at this location two years ago on a previous trip to Rome and found it was perfect for our needs. Love being so close to the Spanish Steps and Giancarlo is a helpful, gracious host. This time we were with another couple - their first time to Rome - and they also were impressed. No, it's not elegant... More

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS LOCATION! Giancarlo is such a gentleman! When we arrived we could not believe the location. Right at the top of the Spanish Steps. Florence, Giancarlo's assistant was there to greet us. What a warm, sweet woman. We explained to her that we had added a 4th traveler to our group at the last minute and needed... More

This was a mixed bag and disappointing. Location at the top of the Spanish Steps nearby the Hotel Hassler was a prime position but the B&B was let down by an accumulation of minor and important matters. We booked a double room two months in advance for a 10 day stay. About one month prior we requested an additional bed... More

I've been to Rome three times and this was my favorite place to stay! The location is perfect, right on top of the Spanish steps and the Metro station is about a block away. You can walk to many nearby attractions. The B&B is very secure and absolutely spotless! The rooms we stayed in were very nicely appointed, they had... More

After an exhausting trip from California to the center of Rome, we were beyond weary upon arrival. However, seeing All'Obelisco for the first time gave us a new burst of energy and excitement. What a stroke of luck to find this jewel! Not only was the room with private bath lovely and comfortable, but breakfasts (which can be an issue... More

We prefer to stay in the Spanish Step area when we visit Rome and were delighted to discover this B & B. It is conveniently located, spotless, and very secure and safe. We stayed there for a total of 5 nights (3 upon arrival and 2 at departure) in two different rooms. The first room was smaller and facing the... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
