“Comfortable bed and value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

The location of this B & B is excellent just across the Tiber from Castel Sant' Angelo and for Rome was good value for money. The room is on the small side but well designed to make best use of the available space and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was a good size and again made excellent use of the space, including a bench seat adjacent to the shower recess. Free Wi Fi was reliable. The hosts Paola and Pietro both spoke good English and gave us some good advice on some inexpensive places to eat. Whilst we only stayed here one night ( For the other 8 days we were in Rome this time, we stayed nearby but there was one night in which this other B & B was fully booked so we needed to relocate) we would stay again. Breakfast is a typical one for Italy and was similiar to all the other breakfasts we had whilst in Rome and Sicily on this visit

We stayed at Sweet Stay from 9th to 12th November, 2012. We usually stay in hotels so this was an experience....I cannot rate this B&B highly enough. We felt that we really had a proper Rome experience....the quaint lift up to the fourth floor, the beautiful shutters which opened out to a beautiful view of Castel St Angelo. What more can you ask for. 10 minutes walk to the Vatican and alot more of the famous landmarks.....Rome is a beautiful city and Sweet Stay is a beautiful B&B....I cannot recommend it highly enough...Many thanks Piotr and Paola
Regards,
Angela & Jim

Are you arriving in Rome without a car and need to walk everywhere you can? Then Sweet Stay in Rome is your absolute best bet. It is an extremely convenient location - just across the bridge from Castel St Angelo. You can easily walk to the Vatican area, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps and the Pantheon. Not to mention all the glorious neighborhoods in between.

To go further, get on a Hop-on, Hop-off bus near St. Peter's Square and you are soon on your way to ancient Rome - the Forum, the Colosseum and Palatine Hill. The other bus line will drop you at Borgese Gardens - your choice.

And if you get confused, just ask the Sweet Stay proprietors, Piotr and Paola. They truly care that their guests have a good visit in Rome and will help you find hours and tickets for anything you want to see. All while providing a comfortable room in the best location in Rome and a tasty breakfast to start your day.

Now don't be expecting some super-grand Americano Hotel entrance. That is not what this place is. You will go up to a plain wooden double door on the street and ring the buzzer - just like you do anywhere else in Italy. Then you take the lift to the fourth floor and Piotr will be waiting for you. You will be checked into REAL Italian accomodations. This is a B&B - which means it is someone's home.

Yes, you might hear water running or others coming and going. But you will be safe and comfortable and have natives to ask for the best recommendations. Piotr and Paola will tell you where to get the best food, where to avoid the worst of the tourist traps - and they will give you a map so that you spend your time in Rome finding what you came for - not wandering around like a lost soul.

Don't miss this opportunity to see the real Roma. I can't recommend Sweet Stay highly enought!
