“Very comfortable B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Is an excelent place to stay in Rome, the attention of the staff is excelent they always recommend you places to eat around the zone and they are very kindly if you have any request, they also speak many languages, not just italian and english but spanish, french, etc.
The rooms of the hotel are enormous it has a lovely bathroom, and for those staying in winter I can tell you that they are very warm.
To conclude I also have to say that the breakfast is excelent it has a great variety and quality and quantity of food and drinks and its served between 7 and 11 so you have plenty of time to go.
When I go back to Rome I'll definitely go to Martasguesthouse.

- The location is in 5 minute walking distance from the Vatican, 15 minutes from the Pantheon
- Less than 50m from the bus station (to and from the airport / train station)
- Close to restaurants ( I highly recommand http://www.ristoranteraf.it/ ) / cafés / gift shops and pubs ( Morrison's is very nice and 1 min dist. )
- Very friendly and hospitable hosts
- Italian style breakfast: pastries (delicious) + different kinds of coffee (tea / water)
- Tall rooms, pleasantly furnished with hairdryer, TV, safe
- Clean sheets, towels changed daily

It's placed in a beautiful and safe area, the building itself is lovely, it's peaceful and quiet around.

Quality / price ratio: great!
I would go back anytime!

I went to rome last week and my experience in marta's place was excelent. Everybody there made us feel like if we were in our house. The rooms were very warm and clean. Beds and pillows were very comfortable. I insist: you wont find a better location and best relation price-quality.

It's nothing fancy but the staff were so helpful and this place worked out perfectly for us, especially for the price. I liked staying a little out of the center of all the touristy things but still able to walk across the Ponte Sant'Angelo into the city center and close to a bus stop. It was a nice quiet and cool haven for us to return to in the middle of our hot sweaty days for our siesta, and also at night. Also, we were close to the best gelato I've ever had.

The room was small and hardly got any light. The bathroom was also very small and the sink was so small that you couldn't even wash your hands. I asked for a different room, which turned out to be smaller and just as dark and the mattress was really thin and uncomfortable. Thankfully, the bathroom (and especially the sink) was a little larger. In both rooms the cell phone got no signal.

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. We picked it because we decided to split up our 4 nights in Rome -- 2 nights at a budget hotel near the Vatican and 2 nights at a nice B&B in the city center -- and this was our budget pick. I was expecting much less than what we got. We arrived very late, around midnight, due to a delayed flight, but that was no problem. The man who checked is in showed us to our room and was really friendly.

The room was quite large. I'm not sure if all the rooms were as large as ours, because our key chain said "Suite" (which we did not request) so ours perhaps may have been larger than the others. I liked the feeling of the room: old brick walls, tile floors, red and gold colors. We had a queen bed, a small sofa, a table, a small kitchenette area with a mini fridge and microwave, and a bathroom with the sink area outside of the toilet and shower.

The location was great, for our needs. We wanted to be close to the Vatican, and the walk from Marta Guest House to the Vatican Museum was super short - maybe 10-15 minutes. It was also in a nice neighborhood that lacked the traditional quaint Roman feel and felt more like a suburb, but it was clean and safe. It was also easy to take a bus from nearby Piazza Cavour to Trastevere.

We spoke to 3 different front desk attendants during our stay - one was moderately polite but the other 2 were incredibly friendly and helpful. The breakfast attendant was also very nice. The breakfast offered more than the traditional coffee and croissant, which is what I've learned to expect in Rome, but not much more (toast, yogurt, and cereal).

Only complaints: The bed was very hard and stiff, and the walls were thin so we could hear other guests coming and going late in the night and early in the morning. I saw other reviews that said street noise was a problem, but our windows faced the inner courtyard, so we didn't hear any traffic or people outside. Despite those two downsides, for the very affordable price, it was worth it and I would certainly stay here again.
