“more on giampy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2005

The friendly service could not be bettered, right from the first emailed communication. The room was spotlessly clean, though the bed was rather unyielding! However, I do have to mention that, having read the reviews about the bathroom in one case being across the hallway, I emailed to ensure that our room was not THE one. I was assured that the room was DEFINITELY ensuite. On arrival, however, we were dismayed to find that there are in fact two rooms with bathrooms outside of the room, and we could choose one of these two. We were, to say the least, disappointed to have been misled. On our return, I emailed to convey our disappointment and received a totally charming reply that it had been a mistake. I am not happy that our communication of only hours before could be the subject of a "mistake". However, if you are prepared not to have a bathroom ensuite, and can have a room at the rock-bottom price offered, then Giampy is your place. Close to everything and helpful staff.

This is a 'value for money', central and clean accomodation if thats what you are looking for. We stayed there for three nights. It is a very small place with 4-5 rooms, indeed (I think) it is converted from a large flat. There is a dining area in the middle. The first night I could hear a bit of noise people having breakfast, but later we were told that this was because a big group (4 rooms) were leaving the same day. The following two days were ok. No noise. Room was cleaned everyday, everything was in working order, and no problem with hot water. It is situated in a very central location, only a short walking distance from Termini Station and metro and bus connections. Staff (well Andrea) was extremely friendly, helpful, responsive and fluent in English. We had a bit of problem when he told that we will need to pay in cash as their agreement with credit card agency ended. But he resolved it by suggestion another practical solution which worked fine for us(and he said it is temporary problem). So overall, if you are looking for a budget accomodation, you can certainly try this place

We stayed at the giampy guesthouse, booked on late rooms, 2 adults, 2 kids in one room, the room was plenty big enough. We got the same room as mentioned in another review, our ensuite was across the hall!
However I would go back tomorrow, Andrea was fluent in english, very helpful, rooms were clean, and it was so handy, a lovely stroll got us to michaelangelos moses, a bit further you are at forum and colosseum, a great cheap place to explore from!

We stayed here in Oct 04

The rooms were very clean, i was a little disturbed to come back from lunch and find that our suitcases has been unpacked for us! Nice gesture but i found i was looking around for a while before i found the things i was after!
We booked here expecting all rooms to be en-suite! This is true for all rooms except 1, which just so happened to be ours! Our bathroom was located on the other side of the 'dining room area'. it was a bit of a pain to have to walk through area in a towel or get dressed in the toilet after your shower.
The rooms were cleaned every day. Showers had plenty of hot water.
Only other comment was the noise from the owners/cleaners. they seemed to be there with the whole family everyday and the small child was very noisy in the morning.
Our Italien is very poor so communication was difficult with the woman (i didnt even pick up her name!) But that was our fault for being lazy english!
Area is not the nicest but is VERY convenient for metro and train station so you CAN look past that if your there to see the sights rather then relax.

As this was a very cheap place, we arrived not expecting a lot, but the room was nice and airy, everything was very clean, and the service was just great! No matter what we asked, we got a friendly answer, Andrea gave us a lot of useful addresses etc, the breakfast was just excellent, really: if you're looking for a place to stay, not too expensive, comfortable but not luxurious, this is the place to be!
