“don't expect too much”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2010

First off I'm not a picky person in the least so you can consider this an unbiased review... i'm also american so this is written from an american point of view. In Italy and Europe in general you will NOT find hotels like the ones in the US for the same price. The room was VERY small by American standards but no matter where you go you can't expect it to be as spacious as what you might be used to.
The reasons I chose this hotel were the location, the price, the private bathroom, and the free wi-fi. We got 2 for 2... read on...
The good things are: the neighborhood- cute, clean, safe... you are a couple blocks from a prestigious area of Rome which is good.
The breakfast was good... more was offered than the other b and b's had that we stayed in elsewhere in Rome. It is mostly packaged food so don't expect a hot, fresh spread. Remember this is Italy, not the Holiday Inn down town. Plenty of things to choose from including some basic salami and cheese, croissants, juice, milk (not usually refridgerated in Italy), cereal, and any form of coffee you like.
The room was clean, smelled nice, and fresh towels were brought in daily. The bed was made for us but the sheets were not changed. This is normal, however.
The bad things were that the shower leaked horribly. It literally flooded the whole bathroom so we had to stop the shower while we soaped ourselves, then turn it back on to rinse just to keep the floor semi-dry.
The wifi never worked despite two complaints to the managers. We were able to use the wifi connection in the hotel downstairs, though.
The managers are very nice and will answer any questions you have.
Upon leaving we had a problem w/ the credit card machine so have cash handy just in case. my husband had to RUN to an ATM to get cash so we wouldnt be late for our train.
Overall, good and bad. Wouldn't return because I think we could do better for the price. However for a place to stay at night, it was comfortable and clean.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2009

We stayed in Flavia 84 in Rome for 2 nights. The pros of this bed and breakfast is that it is near the commercial district (Argricultire ministry..etc) therefore there were lots of trattorias, restaurants, grocers around. It is in the same building as a couple of other hotels which mean that you can leverage on them for tour pick up. The cons of this place is that, the walls are really thin so you could hear all the activities in the apt. We stayed in a double room which was so small that we had to dry ourself in the room and not the toilet as there was just not enough space. The breakfast was nothing to rave about. Unfortunately, our room lock was unable to lock but could not highlight this to the landlord as she was just not around except in the morning plus she does not speak English. But overall, the room was clean, served its purpose as a resting place for the night.
