How can I put into a few words what Luca Patrizi and his warm and wonderful hospitality at At Your Place B&B meant to us?! From the time I found this B&B, months before our trip to Rome, Luca became my hero and angel. I have never encountered another owner (or employee) of any type of accommodation as kind, attentive and helpful as Luca was to me, in trying to plan an extensive trip from thousands of miles away. He was always prompt and thorough in answering all of my questions, and in offering assistance that went above and beyond his role as the owner of a B&B. Finally being able to meet him face to face was one of the highlights of the entire trip for me! In addition to his being simply a truly amazing host and person, we were completely pleased with the quality of our room. It was immaculately clean, comfortable and well-enough-appointed. We especially appreciated clean coffee cups and wine glasses each day and the directions to the market around the corner where they had a great selection of awesome, inexpensive local wines; also, the individual room-related bins in the fridge where we could store things that needed to be kept cold. Luca's personal recommendations of and directions to bars and restaurants were impeccable and so appreciated (especially the place across the street and right around the corner -- worth the wait!). There is also a bank with an ATM literally next door, which was very safe and convenient. When we weren't on a private tour of some sort, we were out walking the beautiful streets of Rome -- we covered a LOT of ground in our 3 full days -- we could easily walk everywhere we needed and wanted to go from At Your Place B&B. After walking miles and miles each day, we were also completely grateful for the beautiful, vintage lift to the 5th floor! All but one morning we had to leave before breakfast, but the one breakfast we did have there was incredibly extensive and delicious. The other days, when we returned to our room we found a bag of pastries, breads, cheeses and other goodies waiting for us. Luca tried and succeeded in anticipating and accommodating our every need. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Luca!! You helped to make it "the trip of a lifetime" for us! Hope to see you again!!

A one week vist to Rom and the perfect accommodation at “AT YOUR PLACE Bed & Breakfast” (Via di Porta Castello, 33). The owner, Luca Patrizi, is a sympathetic host, very helpful in any way. He speaks German and Englisch and naturally his native language.
The rooms are efficient, double bed, secretary, bath with a large shower, small balcony and WLAN. Perfect dayly room service insure clean rooms.
The breakfast is a served by Luca with fresh coffee (Cappuchino, tea or whatever else you want), fruits and always fresh bread and sandwiches. Marmalade, ham and cheese compliment the breakfast, which is more than the normal Italian breakfast.
Luca helps/ makes reservations for guided tours/bus trips/ restaurants and arranges for a 50 € pickup service from / to the FIUMICINO International Airport.
The Castel Sant’Angelo (Engelsburg) can be seen from the balcony of the room and is a 3 Min walk away.
“AT YOUR PLACE Bed & Breakfast” is situated perfectly for a 10 Min walk to the Vatican, the Piazza San Pietro (Basilica S. Pietro), as well as the Vatican museums.
The Scalinata di Trinita dei Monti (Spanische Treppe), Fontana di Trevi, Pantheon, and the Piazza Navona can reached by a footwalk. Or you start with the Metro (station OTTAVIANO to SPAGNA/ start at the Spanische Treppe/Trinita dei Monti) and walk the way back to the B & B.
There are several Restaurants close by for a quick meal at lunch or extensive Italian dinner at night. Bus service right in front of the house can bring you to other parts of the city.

Stayed at this bed and breakfast for 5 days, great location no need to take transit, just a walk away to the Vatican and other great sights. Room was clean and spacious with a top floor balcony, enjoyed people watching. Bed is big and comfortable. The only negative is that water would pool in the shower stall (poor drainage) and therefore we did not have the shower on high.
Breakfast was very filling great selection of croissants and pastries,enjoyed the cheese
recommend the nutella donut. Luca makes tasty cappuccinos. Luca gave us great tips on sightseeing.

My husband and I stayed at 'At Your Place' when we visited Rome for our 25th Anniversary celebration vacation. It was like being at home. The owner/operator (Luca) is very friendly and helpful. Luca sat down with us and gave us tips, arranged tours and advised us on how to get around Rome. He even arranged for travel from the airport and to the train station. The food was incredible. Cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay. It was not fancy but very clean and comfortable (even has free WiFi). Just a short walk to the Vatican. No need for taxis anywhere.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are similar.

We were lucky to stumble upon Luca's B&B while booking our trip to Rome. He was a lovely host who was very helpful in teaching us how to navigate the city and its transportation system. He speaks fluent English, French, and Italian (in addition to how many other languages) so communicating was very easy. The rooms are small but very clean and with full individual bathrooms. Nice hot showers after walking the streets of Rome are lovely.

The B&B is well situated near the Vatican and for people who do not mind walking, you can walk to the Roman ruins and Colloseum within about 30-45 minutes and the B&B is about a 10 minute walk to a subway/metro station. You will need to walk these distances to burn off the calories consumed during Luca's very generous breakfasts. Many different pastries were offered every morning, as well as fresh breads and cheese.

Overall, we would stay here again in a heartbeat. Only warning - if you are a light sleeper and like to sleep in on vacation, consider bringing earplugs because the B&B is small and you can hear people in the morning enjoying the breakfast.

In the Vatican district, 10 minutes walk to a Metro stop, 5 minutes to St Peters, 10 minutes to Piazza Poppolo, this B&B is great location-wise. Luca is very helpful and friendly, including arranging an extra night for us at the last minute. Always good recommendations for restaurants and activities too. Delicious breakfast! We were late to breakfast one morning (long sleep-in) and he left the croissants and rolls at our door for a late breakfast - thanks Luca! Will happily stay here again.
