“The ratings are true!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2011

This is the first time I've even thought about writing a review, but this place was so good I just felt compelled to do so!

I usually look at the latest reviews when using this site as I feel that they reflect the fairest view. The post below mine says "At home in Rome" and you really are!

Location: Right near the station, less than a couple minutes walk away and I've stayed in this neighbourhood a couple of times in Rome and never seen anything remotely dodgy, so don't worry! The main attractions aren't far to walk to, me and my girlfriend don't walk at all and we found it doable to walk from the B&B to the Vatican one day! (Albeit that was a little tiring).

Value: Absolute bargain for what you get!

Cleanliness: Spotless, the bathroom was so clean you wouldn't have been opposed to sleeping in there!

Rooms: Our room was so cosy and comfortable. The bed was a real double bed, not two single beds pushed together and then a double sheet, an actual double mattress and it was sooo nice to come back to after a long day of sight-seeing!
Nice little mini-fridge which we used to keep our sandwich making stuff in. Little lamps above both sides of the bed, a nice view out the window of a very green square! Even room to do a few exercises on the floor. I don't know whether we had quiet neighbours but we didn't hear anything other than a sneeze through the wall!

Service: met the guy the first day, saw him a couple times after throughout the 3 nights there. Very friendly, not great with his English on the phone, but is perfectly nice when you meet him in person! Gives you the keys, takes your details, it is cash on arrival, but that didn't bother us.

Breakfast is fine, quite basic but you have everything you need, we were so happy with the room and everything else that the breakfast didn't really matter. You can have a couple croissants and a coffee, or some cereal.

Overall we stayed for 3 nights, had a lovely time and would definitely stay again! I urge you to do the same! Basically, if you like your sleep and a nice place to chill and don't want to be afraid of coming back to your room early, whether it is during the day for a nap (like us), or after an early meal nearby, then don't hesitate booking here! Hope this has been helpful, contact me if you want to know anymore!

P.S (As for restaurants we went to "Est Est Est" one night, very old pizzeria and would seriously recommend for low prices and great food!)

My one very small criticism is that it can get quite loud outside in the evening, but it is bearable and the noise didn't continue after 23:30 and it was brief!

What a great place to stay. We booked on Expedia and were promptly met by the own er, who kitted us out with keys and showed us around the house. Maian is a self-contained flat you share with two other parties, breakfast is self-serve and provided int he kitchen. Real espresso, and the usual Italian minimalist breakfast (doesn't matter, there is always lunch to look forward to). We had the twin room with private bath - small but sufficient in size for occasional lazing and feasts provided by the nearby produce market hall. Lovely flat in old cool building - 100m from Stazione Termini but I'd say perfectly safe even for the lone traveller and not unpleasant at all - and convenient transport links 2 min walk away. Our room had high ceilings and an original wooden floor, and was kitted out in Ikea and some nice vintage furniture. Absolutely loved it. Unless I was there on a blow-the-budget trip, I'd return again to my home in Rome! Wonderful place.

Never seen such a lovely B&B! Very cute and cosy.
Good location near Termini, lot of restaurants in the neighbourhood.
You can take coffee, juice, cornflakes and bread whenever you want.
We had twin room, the bathroom was not in the room itself but that was not bothering us at all.
Very good beds.
There is also a small bar with maps of Roma and books, it felt like we had our own little appartment in Roma, not just a room.
I'd defenetly recommend this to everyone. Besides it is good it is also very cheap, so very good value.

The B & B is furnished with good artistic taste. The room is cozy. Breakfast is varied and plentiful. One thing that sets it apart is the willingness of the owners, very friendly and kind. I hope to return there.

Stayed at Maian BnB in June 2009. Do not be deceived by the building, the apartment on the first floor is just delightful (building even has a lift - quite small but still saves you dragging suitcases up stairs). We stayed in the twin room with private bathroom (ie bathroom not in room, but just down the hall). Maybe we were just lucky, but did not see anyone else in apartment during our stay. Breakfast is supplied in kitchen, just help yourself, fridge and cupboards were always fully stocked. Rooms are a reasonable size and beds are comfortable. Hotel is ideally located to Termini station, quite literally on the next corner and loads of reasonably priced restaurants nearby. Did not experience too much street noise. Would definitely stay here again.

looks cousy at first. but if you look closer, you will recognize dirty sheets, bad windows - you could literally hear the vespas drive through the room. heating was completely turned off for 1 and a half days, so was warm water. some mold in the shower cabin. not sure if the towels where fresh. for 80€ i can imagine better places to stay during february. located right next to termini, which is the central station.

have to say, we where relocated from a different B&B on a short notice, so maybe Maian was not really prepared for guests?
