Just got done staying at this guest house for two weeks! It is literally 3 blocks from the Vatican. The rooms are of excellent value and very clean! The staff was very friendly and helpful.

The room was very clean and nice. The walls between the three bedrooms were a little thin. Be aware that the owners are in another building across the street. There's no "front desk" or a person on duty all the time. You communicate with the owners via email to set up when you are arriving. The B&B itself is in... More

Great little B&B right outside of St. Peter's square. A little further from most other tourist hot spots but easy to get to. Very close to shops and restaurants. My only complaint is that opening and closing the doors in the building is NOISY and some of the locks were tricky. But the proprietors were extremely kind and helpful and... More

Great experience! Will stay here again when I return to Rome. The Internet service was spotty and it was hard to stay connected, but this wasn't owners fault. They tried everything they could to fix problem.
