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.

They have an espresso machine and you can make your own cappuccino. The rooms are in a five story building. The owner is in the building next to the one... More

This guest house was a pleasant surprise. First, I have to say that Emilia, the property owners, was just fabulous. She contacted me three days prior to my stay to inquire about my arrival time and to offer any assistance we may have needed. We took the train from Fiumicino Airport to St. Pietro station, which is just a few... More
