Located on a car-free street midway between the train station and the Duomo (5-7 min walk to each), Casa Billi is quite convenient. It is hard to classify it as a hotel, because the friendly owner/staff is only on site as needed for guest check-in. Our room (#1) was clean, spacious and quite functional. WiFi worked and room was cleaned... More

Italian hotels on a budget are always a challenge, but we were immediately impressed by the friendly couple who own this establishment! They were do welcoming, helpful and friendly. We got a great orientation to the hotel, as well as helpful tips for the city. The rooms are small and a little noisy. The shared bathroom was very small.

A 5 minute walk from the train station, so a good location. The owner was very nice and helpful. Good value for money. Bathroom was shared with other guests but had no problem with that. Only problem we had was taking the suitcases up the stairs (there is an elevator, but not for guest usage). Would recommend.

Booked Casa Billi as a result of having stayed at the Beehive in Rome and using the cross-pollinate resource. The location is good. The desk is not staffed 24 hours. Shared bathroom was ok. Could not access wifi for some reason.

We booked 3 rooms for 6 people at Casa Billi through Cross-Pollinate.com. First, Cross-Pollinate was a great resource for finding this place and they were very helpful in the booking process. As for Casa Billi: Lorenzo, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful. The rooms are basic, clean and comfortable, each with a small fridge, armoire, and updated bathroom. The... More

Hotel is well located to exclude local transportation: 7 minutes’ walk to station, same distance to the Center. It is on 2nd floor of the building. There is no lift for hotel guests. I had room n.1 and this is equipped with good double bad, wardrobe, cooler, air-conditioner, TV and 1 chair. No table. No glasses. No sound proofing around.... More

We stayed here in June 2012 and were generally happy with our stay! Check your arrival time as if you arrive after 3pm you will need to let them know (I did via email) as the desk is not manned 24/7. We arrived at 3.30pm and they were fine with this and very friendly. After check in you don't see... More

This is a fantastic hotel to say for budget accomodation. The room was clean and comfortable with air conditioning which is a blessing in summer. The bathroom has been renovated and clean. We had bedroom number four which can be noisy as shares a common wall with the bathroom. Staff are friendly and the location was terrific. Walking distance to... More

I'd like to emphasize that this is simply a place that one rents a room with a shared bathroom. It's not meant to be fancy. Though the building has an elevator, it's not available (the hotel staff said they were trying to work out an agreement with the elevator owner). To my surprise, the tiny little woman that runs the... More

We arrived at casa billi, they looked at us like they were surprised to see someone checking in and very rudely asked what we were doing there. We told them we had a reservation and showed them our email confirmation, which she very rudely told me that "this is not a reservation". I'm still not sure what she expected me... More

Dear Ignacio,we remember when you came (we thought you didn't came, this happens more often than you think!) so we were surprised that no one had rung the doorbell and we found out from our door.
