“Nice cosy place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

My friend and I were doing a eurotrip and Rome was the first city in which we decided to stay at a B&B rather than a hotel. The setup here is that we were renting a room in an apartment owned by a couple Pierpaolo & Julia. They were lovely and really helpful. We had our own key and could come and go as we pleased. The "breakfast" part of the bed and breakfast was a kitchen stocked with toast, spreads, milk, juices, croissants etc. That was good as everyone has different meal times. The only issue we had was the water pump which made a really funny noise when we'd turn the taps on. It caught us by surprise everytime and it was pretty loud. The apartment has no elevators so we had to carry our 20kg suitcases up and down the three flights of stairs which wasnt pleasant. Location-wise, we were within walking distance of the vatican and we found some nice places to eat in the area.
Seeing as it's a bed & breakfast, we weren't expecting any housekeeping and although the sheets weren't changed during out three night stay we were pleasantly surprised to see our bins emptied and our toilet paper restocked so that was nice. The metro was very close by (Lepanto) which was handy. The street is definitely noisy as some people mentioned previously. I'm usually a heavy sleeper but the noise did bother me a bit and it took a while to get to sleep. Other than that, remember to bring cash. I was under the impression that the the credit card I used to secure the booking would be charged after we left but on arrival we were told to pay in cash. This was actually a major hassle for us as we were nearing the end of our trip and didn't have enough euro cash and had to go hunting around the city trying to find a good exchange rate etc. Other than that, we had a pleasant stay and I'd recommend B&B Sant'Agostino to others travelling to Rome and who were looking for nice, affordable accommodation.

Stayed here 4 nights. Had a great time. The location is very good, between Vatican City and Piazza del Popolo. I always walked when i needed to go somewhere, but you have a metro station around the corner (Lepanto).
The hostel was good, quiet and clean. The owner (Pierpaolo) lives upstairs and will be able to help you giv you some hints to meet the city.
Also, he gave us no check out time and kept our luggage for almost a whole day.
Nice breakfast (at any time in the day).
Resuming, I would definitely stay here again.

Our stay at this B&B was good:

Positives
- close to train stop
- friendly (Paolo and his girlfriend were great)
- clean kitchen + clean room on arrival
- they let us use kitchen for our 9 month old


Negatives
- Noisy street - if ure a light sleeper difficult getting sleep
- No room cleaning / fresh sheets on a daily basis if ure staying multiple days

Good value. If you want luxury - this is not it.

B&B Sant' Agostino is situated in a nice residential area, only footsteps away from the LEPANTO metro station, buses and shopping area.
all the major touristic sights (vatican city included) can easily be reached by foot from this area.
if you are looking for a "comfortable" home away from home feeling, this is definitely the place. service is very personalized with a very friendly and informative host.

we would definitely return to B&B Sant' Agostino!!!
