“Perfect Way Station”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

I stayed here because I was flying in late and back out early via Ciampino airport. The location was fantastic- a bus and then the metro got me there for under four euros. The B&B is in a lively area, in an apartment building two minutes walk from the metro station. Sergio was extremely helpful in getting me a taxi and making sure I got to the airport on time. Also notable was the fact that this place was extremely clean. I think it was actually gleaming. I would absolutely stay here again.

Stayed March 2012, traveled solo

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2009

Desiderio di Roma was the perfect place for us. It's just outside the super touristy areas of Rome, but close enough that you don't feel out of place as a tourist and can easily walk to the attractions. A Metro station is also about a half block away, and it's only 1 or two stops to the sites.

Sergio, the B&B owner, is extremely warm and helpful. We arrived in Rome late at night and he arranged for a private car to pick us up from the airport, for a reasonable price. Because it is a little hard to find (as most B&Bs seem to be in Rome), this was the perfect way to arive at the B&B. We also ran into a problem with the next hotel we were staying at and he stepped in and helped us find a new hotel!

Our breakfast was actually at the little cafe downstairs. You just walk in and say you're staying at the B&B and they'll give you one coffee drink and a pastry. It was also great that we were able to use the computer in the entry way at our leisure.

One bit of caution for those who may not like tight spaces: the shower in our room was extremely small. We didn't really have a problem with this, but a larger-than-average-sized person will literally not be able to get in!

We definitely recommend this B&B and would love to come back next time we're in Rome!
