We stayed last week at Capricci Romani and these are our thoughts:
1) Location: The **most** excellent. I can not emphasize enough that there is no better location. A few very short blocks from St. Peter's and the Vatican, and very close walking distance to most major attractions. Massimo, the owner, took plenty of time and drew a "walking map" on a Rome map for us. He circled our destinations, along with a few he suggested. This was PERFECT. We had street by street instructions - these made our trip wonderful!
** The location was perfectly safe, close enough for ease of arival wherever we wanted to go, just far enough to avoid the noise and crowds of Rome.
2) Facilities: The B&B was just what we required. Massimo does not try to state this is "fancy," but it is clean, nice, and felt wonderfully "Roman." We LOVED the little elevator to get to our room. We slept very well, and had no complaints.
3) Breakfast: Massimo had breakfast every morning for us consisting of bread, cheese, pastry, and meat - typical Roman fare. Best of all - he offered American coffee, expresso, or our daily choice - cappucino - and we had 2 each morning :))
4) Assistance: Having Massimo was like having a brother who knew the city well. We wanted to see St. Paul Outside the Walls (part of the Vatican - but not as close as most attractions). We intended to use the Metro, but Massimo suggested using the bus (which took us to the Termini Station), and then to get the Metro there to St. Paul OTW. It saved time, and the bus ride was wonderful.
We have stayed in Rome before, and paid a LOT more money for similar facilities.
Cappricci Romani is an excellent choice in an excellent location:
*Massimo will make sure you have a great time and help you accomplish great visits to many attractions.
All of the rooms looked great.
