“Great location and wonderful hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

My family stayed five days in Rome in December and we really enjoyed our stay the moment we arrived at the airport. Carla had made arrangement for a transfer from the airport to the room for us. We were able to check in at around 10 a.m. and were warmly welcome by Carla and her husband. They gave us a detailed orientation of Rome and wonderful advice on how to travel safely. The rooms were very well-maintained and neat. Free coffee and tea were available 24-hours. On top of this, the location of the place is wonderful. It is within 5-10 minutes walk to the Colosseum, Trevi fountains, the Roma Terminii and other attractions.

Right from the start to the finish, Paulo was incredibly welcoming & accommodating. Our room was a beautiful room, very clean, spacious & remarkably, had all the small & important things covered.Excellent b'fast provided by the friendly & beautiful staff member. Great location as well.

( Would have given 5 stars but being a very light sleeper & even though Locanda attempts to block traffic noise with dble glazed windows the room was still a little noisy at times for very light sleepers, though my wife had no problems. )

Highly recommended & thanks Paulo for looking after us so well !

Room Tip: Room overlooking the Police/Ministry can still be a little noisy from the traffic if your a very lig...

Easily accessed from Roma Terminii, this B&B Is actually beside a police station so a great sense of security prevails. It is actually on Via Palermo looking across a piazza. 4 rooms total this 1st floor B&B run by Paolo & Carla. Clean, comfy and well located to the main rd Via Nazionale. Walking distance to the iconic Roman sights and nearby narrow cobbled streets of cafe's and restaurants. You will enjoy your stay here!

We had a wonderful room with a very private outdoor room attached to ours, where we ate our
breakfast, served in our room. Very pleasant decor - very clean. Cannot say enough about Carla's hospitality. She made our stay very welcoming and comfortable. Per her husband:"Our home is your home during your stay".

Couldn't have found a better B&B. Carla and her husband are wonderful and totally accommodating. The room is very clean, modern. The breakfast was very good. They couldn't do enough for us and we hated to leave. It is about a 5 minute walk to the Termini and we also were able to walk to the Forum and Colosseum. It is right around the corner from Via Nazionale and right on a Piazza with the Ministry of the Interior - very centrally located. They also have Wi-Fi in the room, which was much appreciated. It made our visit to Rome perfect.

Room Tip: There are four rooms, three of which we stayed in. One has a balcony over the Piazza and another ha...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Stayed at this B&b for 4 nights recently. 3 nights before a trip to South Italy and one on the way back. If I was assessing the 3 nights it would come out as 4 stars. Good location, fantastic hosts, lovely clean rooms (I had one with a balcony area at the back of the hotel which was quiet). The only negatives were 1) the shower, which went hot and cold 2) the breakfast, whilst adequate, lacked variety over 3 mornings.

So the word of caution...... On the way back, even though I had booked the Viminale, I was lead to a room in a neighbouring hotel - the Mosaic. I had not been warned that my room would not be in the Viminale. This hotel was awful. The room was like a prison cell - no furnishings, no mirror, a nigh light in the room which was so bright I had to cover it with a towel, the shower tray was so small it kept on flooding, ineffective air conditioning. Noisy room (double glazing was poor). The only saving grace was that the bed was comfortable. The proprietors of the Viminale have built an excellent reputation - don't jeopardise it by using this hotel - and at least warn your guests before you use put them in it!

Not withstanding this, I would happily recommend the Viminale.

Room Tip: Make sure that your room is in the Viminale, and not a neighbouring hotel.

dear customer thank you for your review, we always accept the suggestions that help us improve. unfortunately we can not change our breakfast because it has a big hit with all our customers.
Sometimes customers ask us the changes that we make,
vegan or vegetarian breakfast.
It 's very important that the customer, during the stay, tell me if there are things they do not like.
occasionally use the rooms on the second floor.
new rooms, with private bathroom and a view of Viminale square.
when I showed the customer the room was pleasantly surprised.he said he like it very much.
I was very surprised of the review ,I can't understand why
