This is one of the best places I have ever stayed and it is perfectly located and very well priced. The place is located in a nice area of Rome near San Giovanni, near the subway on the same line to the Vatican and a 15 minute walk to the Coliseum and 25 minutes to all the main attractions.
Also ask for recommendations for food the suggestions we got were local and amazing

During my first solo trip to Europe, I decided to stay in Gentes. I am very happy I chose it while visiting Rome. The room was very clean, the location was great and Cristina, the owner was extremely helpful. Since the first day she recommended several places to visit and eat. It was very easy to move around with her guidance and my stay at Rome was the best. I will definitely recommend my friends to stay at Gentes when they go to Rome. If you are looking for a place that is affordable, has great location, and friendly staff, I highly recommend Gentes B&B. Thank you for all your help Cristina!. Hope to go back soon.

The apartment has good location which only 10 minutes walk to the Coloseo and 3 minutes walk to the Metro Mazoni. Room is small but clean. Good option especially in peak season. I will definitely recommend it to friends. The host recommended a very nice restaurant to me , good food and competitive prices.

My wife and I had a wonderful 2 nights stay at Gentes B&B. The owners were very friendly and helpful in recommending restaurants and sights to see in the area. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the shower and bathroom were perfect. The internet worked without any problems. Also available are three different coffee/espresso machines. Gentes B&B was easily our favorite place we stayed in in Rome. It will be our first choice when in Rome again.

We spent wonderful 3 days in Rome this April. Gentes is a perfect place for those who don't want to waste time using public transport to reach the city centre.
Breakfast was good enough to start a new day full of motion.
The room was clean, but a little cool at night. But the problem was solved by closing windows:)
There is no wonder we will book this B&B next time we are in Rome.

Room Tip: Only one room has a bathroom inside.

Although a bit hard to find as it is in an apartment block, our taxi driver knew exactly how to find it. The staff were very friendly and helpful. This is a very cute converted apartment with 3 separate rooms. We stayed in the purple (triple) room, which was clean and contemporary. We had to share a bathroom across the hall but it wasn't a problem as we never ran into anyone else. Although there was a couple with a baby staying in one of the other rooms we felt as if we were alone there so we were not bothered by noise and it was private enough. Because there are only three rooms it feels homely and safe. There was a communal lounge/kitchen with free water and juice, which was a nice touch. It is situated really close to the metro station and Piazza S. Giovanni, from where you can catch a bus. The free breakfast is just down the block at a little corner cafe (coffee and croissant). The location is great - just down the road from the Coliseum and in the heart of the old city. I would recommend Gentes B&B to anyone.
