“Excellent base for a stay in Rome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2010

B&B Smart was perfect for us. We had a gigantic double bed room. With a desk, extra bed, wardrobe, bedside tables etc. Isa was welcoming and nothing was too much bother for her. The room and the bathroom were absolutely spotless. Our room was tidied everyday. Convenient to the train station and walkable to old centre of Rome.

Breakfast was a prepackaged affair, with pastries, juices etc, delivered to our room at the time requested. Basic but quite adequate. There was a shared fridge in the small living area and also a drawer full of handy things like scissors, razors etc which was very thoughtful.

The rooms were very quiet with the windows shut but at the start of September the room got quite hot, and we had to leave the windows open a lot, which was extremely noisy overnight. Aircon or even a strong fan would have made this place much better. Would be more comfortable in cooler months.

Sometimes there would be a small wait to use the bathroom because it was the shared with family and a couple of other rooms.

There was no internet but wifi was free.

This was an amazing find.

Run by a very very helpful and very very friendly family, B&B Smart is in a brilliant location (about 5mins walk from Termini, the main train station in Rome), and in easy walking distance of all the attractions in the city.

The B&B is in a beautiful Italian flat; spotlessly clean, it provides (included in the price) all the basics to a very high standard - clean, comfortable bed with fresh linen and towels every day, breakfast when you want it, shared bathroom (also spotlessly clean), hair-dryer and luggage storage, as well as lots of helpful advice about Rome, the tourist attractions, how to get around, where to find budget restaurants etc.

The owners are always there and very happy to help/answer questions and could not have been more accommodating. We were even given a very useful map when we arrived which saved us from getting lost during our entire stay!

It is perfect city break accommodation - if your main concern is a clean, safe comfortable bed and some breakfast to tie you over until lunch, in a beautiful, very centrally located flat with very friendly and helpful hosts thrown in, you've found a winner.
