Very good location, close to the metro station. In the street there are some nice restaurants and shops. The rooms are large and in the kitchen you can find everything for a good breakfast. The host is very helpful.

The rooms were a great size! The location was unbeatable! From our balcony we could see the Vatican wall. We had our own section of the kitchen and whenever we would eat something, it would be quickly refilled and replaced by Emiliano. When we arrived Emiliano gave us a map, told us which buses and trains to take to which... More

Thanks to Francesco, discovering the city was never easier!! He gives you the first review of where to go and how to use the bus to reach the different parts of rome.

Chose this hotel because of the very good reviews. Previously we have stayed in b&b in Brussels and decided that the same thing would await us in Rome. However, we suffered a slight disappointment. Yes, close to the metro and the Vatican. Yes, very friendly hosts. But the rest .... We were given the BLUE ROOM. The room was small,... More

The great location- close to metro station and even walking distance to the center. Feeling like at home- you can make your own breakfast in the kitchen. The room is very clean and spacious. Fracesco's hospitality is great, and we had a feeling that we were good friends for a long time. Coming again for sure.

My mum and I stayed at the Scipione B&B 3 times over our month long trip to Italy. We found it a fabulous place to stay, it is near the Vatican and is walking distance to all the major tourist attractions in Rome (and I'm not usually a walker...) but if walking doesn't excite you the Metro is not far...

Staying in Prati

Neighborhood Profile
Just steps away from the chaos of the center, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighboring Borgo, Prati is a local favorite for its aesthetic organization and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.

“The rooms are colored. Honestly you can't go wrong. Our room was on the outside of the building and you could see the Vatican wall, but the other rooms were on the inside and had a nice quiet balcony with a courtyard view.”

“We had the orange room for two visits: it has a look-out into a typical Rome courtyard, there was a pretty roof garden beside out window.... most pleasant.”

“The orange room faces a courtyard, rather than the street, but we also stayed in the blue room, which has a nice big bathroom and it wasn't too noisy at all... so decide which is more important for you”
