Arches B&B
Ranked #277 of 3,722 Rome B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 11, 2013

We were a family of four and spent seven nights at Arches B & B. Paulo and Fabio arranged for a driver to pick us up at the airport and drive us to Arches for 55 Euro; the driver was Johnie, who is also the security guard at the building, a delightful person who was very gracious and helpful. The rooms were spacious and clean, the bathroom, beds and pillows fine, and a nice balcony. Each room is assigned a shelf in the common kitchen fridge with milk, and yogurt, and also a cabinet space with bread, jam and a few pastries which are replenished every day. There are nice restaurants of every type, a couple of small grocery stores, and a fine gelato place very close. We were a ten minute walk from the subway and to a central bus hub near the Vatican. The price was very reasonable and the hosts were very helpful and hospitable.

I can only echo the previous reviews - the hosts are wonderfully helpful and make you feel at home. We had their mobile phone numbers in case we needed them at any time. I liked the fact that we served our own breakfast - it meant that we were not tied to a particular time - and there was always plenty of fresh milk, juice, yoghurts and butter in the fridge. Bread for toasting was sliced - just as we British are used to! Fresh espresso on tap too!

The bed was so comfortable, and pillows were nice and plump - practically guaranteeing a good night's sleep.The bathroom was large and clean, and hot water was plentiful.

The neighbourhood is residential and feels very safe. Plenty of restaurants, food stores, banks etc are within 5 minutes of the property. The metro station is a 5 to 10 minute walk, and is simple to use. It is possible however to walk to most places - we walked as far as the Trevi fountain without realising it!

We will definitely be returning to Rome - it has to be my favourite city - and I would not hesitate to stay at the Arches again.

We stayed in the Arches B&B some 100m from Ciprio Metro station in a very calm residential area. Location is excellent, metro nearby, Vatican museum is a 10min walk and St. Peter's square is about 20min. Rooms are very clean and the owners are friendly and very helpful (they went to the Vatican to collect our tickets for the Easter Mass).
What we did not like was breakfast: especially the pre packed croissants, cakes and toast. A pity they do not provide some fresh bread. What we also did not know is that you have to prepare breakfast yourself and to wash the dishes. During our 3 days stay they did not clean the room or make the beds, something we encountered for the first time while staying in a B&B.

This place is charming, a little home from home in Rome. Such good value given the amount of living space, big rooms, lovely useful lounge area with free internet, quirky fun decoration, owners really kind and helpful at recommending local places to eat & visit.

we spent 6 days in Rome and we chose to stay at Arches Inn beacuse of its impressive reviews.
Well, Arches Inn is amazing, the rooms are very large and well cleaned, the owners/managers are very kind, in particular Fabio is very nice and helpfull: you can call him whenever you want asking all kind of informations...
The location is very good, it is few minutes far from Vatican Museum and St. Peter's Church, the Metro is 50 meters far and, even if the location is quiet, there is a shopping street just few meters far away...
Definitely Arches Inn is the best way to enjoy the amazing city of Rome!!!
thanks for all guys, hope to see you next time in Rome!!!
