“Amazing place, great location and super friendly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

The wife and I took a 3 week long vacation to Europe that started in Rome, Italy. This was the first of several B&B´s we stayed in. The location was PERFECT! Less than a 5 min walk to Vatican. Great places to eat near by. A few shops near by for souvenirs and essentials. We could stick out had out our window and see St. Peter's Basilica Dome. Decent size rooms with your own bathrooms and showers. A great window to let in the awesome Italian atmosphere. They were super friendly. Were great with breakfast for us every morning. Our was super quiet and felt like home. We will stay here again the next time in Rome. Thank you so very much for the amazing service and a great place to stay. Cheers!

Loved this B&B, which is in a great location. It is less than five minutes walk from St.Peter's Square. The furthest we went was to the Colosseum, which took us about an hour to walk. There was a very convenient bus stop on the next street, which was great for travelling back from dining in the Piazza Navona area at night.

The B&B is spotlessly clean and Simona and Valeria are lovely and very helpful. They very kindly allowed us to leave our luggage on the day we checked out as we had an evening flight.

The breakfast selection is limited but that is a very minor downside in Rome, where there are so many delicious things to eat.

I would happily come back and stay here if I visit Rome again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

We had a wonderful stay at the B&B Le Sorelle Lumiere. We spent one night in Rome on each end of our Italy trip and had such a good experience the first night that we were excited to come back for our last night in Italy. The B&B is tiny (4 rooms) and run by 2 sisters. Simona, one of the sisters, contacted me a few days before each of our stays to find out our arrival time for check-in and make sure we didn't need her to arrange for a private shuttle to pick us up at the airport. She was extremely pleasant to work with, punctual and helpful. The B&B has a fantastic location, just a few blocks from the Vatican and walking distance from all the major attractions. My husband and I easily walked to the Piazza Navona area as well as the Colosseum (good 30 min walk minimum, but great way to see Rome!). Trastevere was a 6 euro cab ride away (12 euro after 10pm). We shuttled in from the airport at the beginning of the trip, opting for the 8 euro SITbus (http://www.sitbusshuttle.com/en/fiumicino/) shuttle which has a stop near the Vatican. I would cab it from the shuttle stop to the B&B because dragging suitcases on the cobblestone streets and fighting through Vatican City tourists was a little exhausting. Still, this option is much more affordable than the 50 euro private shuttle ride from the airport to the B&B. The rooms were super clean, quiet and decorated each one in the spirit of a different film director. Internet was free and fast. Plenty of hot water in the shower and great water pressure. Breakfast was simple, but good and Simona even showed me how to work the coffee machine before our super early (before the start of breakfast) departure. The sisters are not there at night, but guests have access to the microwave and coffee maker. This is a great place to stay if you are independent and looking for a safe, clean and cute place to come home to after long days touring beautiful Rome.

We stayed in Le sorell for a couple of nights and we wanted to be close to the city centre due to time restraints. This little gem could not have been a better pick as everything was a walking distance from the hotel. It has a really funky style which gives it a cool edge over the other B&Bs I've previously stayed in and the rooms are extremely clean with the beds being super comfy! The two ladies were so lovely, they gave us lots of tips of where to go and they even received my parcel prior to my arrival. They made our stay in Rome a really amazing experience!

This review is a little bit overdue, we stayed here in may. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room, everything was clean and the reception were very helpful. Before arriving they arranged a pickup t the airport for us, they were very informative regarding bus routes etc, and happy to help in any way. The location is good, very close to the bus stop and only a short bus ride into the historical centre, can walk it if your keen. Also, right near the Vatican. Breakfast was good, croissants, fruit, yoghurt, toast, tea and coffee. Compared to alternative options in Rome, this hotel was fantastic value for money, and we would gladly stay there again.
