B&B in residential area. Quiet, local shops and restaurants very close. 15 min walk to St. Peter's. Once you learn bus system, very easy to get to city center. Recommend bus or taxi from train station to B&B. Very nice and friendly owners. Would stay here again.

Romulus Rex was a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of Rome. We were happy to find a place near central Rome with free parking. We parked the car for the three days we were there and walked or took cabs. The location was perfect- easy to get to in a quiet residential neighbourhood. There are restaurants,stores, coffee and...

NB: Staff only speaks Italian, also my overall rating is based on the price I got through a Roman friend. It would be lower if I had to pay the price I saw on the door. I stayed here when I was looked out of my room, which is just down the street. The room was clean, with an upscale... More

Dear Guest, we are glad you enjoyed your stay at the Romulus Rex B&B! We assure you that the staff does speak other languages than Italian. In particular Daniela speaks English and Romolo speaks French. Unfortunately, the day of your visit only Romolo was in the house. Normally, however, Daniela is always available to speak in English with any guest.... More
