This bed and breakfast was a great surprise. The three rooms are located in a flat in an ordinary block of flats. You walk inside and they are beautifully appointed, a real marvel for the price (given how very expensive Rome is). We stayed in the Black and White room, which I would recommend because it is the one with...

This is a great place to stay in Rome - Davide is so friendly and the rooms are spacious and well furnished. It offered the comfort of a boutique hotel with the friendliness of staying in a "real" home, all at an excellent price. Would definitely stay here again and happy to recommend.

Every morning he serves the breakfast at your room which you choose the evening before. You can always choose 2 drinks (hot and cold) and 2 kinds of food (e.g. scrambled eggs, toasts with jam or...

We loved staying at Zen Trastevere and having Davide as our host. We stayed in the Black and White room which had an attached private bathroom. The room was spotless and exactly as pictured in the photos here and on his website. It's light and airy with a big window and the air conditioning works great. The fast wifi was...

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The B & B Zen Trastevere is the fruit of an idea that has recently taken shape: to create a setting where guests are offered every kind of comfort in a colorful and carefree environment, and also a little oasis of peace right in the middle of the Eternal City. The B&B is centrally located, right on Viale Trastevere, but is set within a courtyard so it is quiet and peaceful.The B&B, which opened in early 2011 with three rooms, has recently acquired a second B&B on the same floor so now there are seven double bedrooms total. The new rooms have been decorated with the same simple philosophy as the original three rooms, using the colors and diversity that our clients have always been enthusiastic about.In apartment A there are 3 double rooms, one with private bath en suite, and 2 which share a bathroom. All rooms have air conditioning and free WIFI Internet connection 24 hours a day. The rooms are furnished with care and elegance, with colors that make them welcoming and relaxing. Upon request, a third bed can be added in each of these rooms.In apartment B there are 4 double rooms, each with its own bathroom (one is outside the room). All rooms have air conditioning and free WIFI Internet connection 24 hours a day. Upon request, a third bed can be added in two of these rooms.Room prices include a rich and hearty continental breakfast which is served in the kitchen of each apartment.At B&B Zen Trastevere you will be welcomed with courtesy and availability, and by the enchantment of the true essence of Italian style. ... more   less
