“Basic and clean”
Reviewed August 19, 2011

The guesthouse was in a residential building which was really nice to be part of rather than a hotel. Room was okay size and bathroom very clean. However was always dark unless you opened shutter windows fully. Would recommend as a basc room to stay, nothing fancy and one step up from a hostel. Breakfast is some crackersa nd small juice containers and a prepacked croissant left in room.

Our biggest issue was we were due 15 euros change when we arrived and paid and although this is not a huge amount we were promised it would be left in our room 3 times and it never was so we were short changed this and brings up issue of honesty in the staff working there as we were left no way to contact and there is never anyone there. Does this happen to other guests too?

Great value for money considering where it is. Room was basic but very clean and modern. People couldn't have been friendlier and more helpful!
Well worth the 5 stars. Don't pay any more for a fancy hotel, stay here in a nice simple room, go out for breakfast and enjoy the sites!!!

I had stayed already at Via Duilio at it was already very good, clean and well located. This time I went for the beatification of John Paul II and stayed at the Rovati guest house at Piazza Cavour. Only 2-minute walk from Castello St. Angelo and 10-minute from Saint Peter.

Its big, renovated and tastefully-decorated rooms are amazing, a 4-star hotel room. The owner is really friendly and helpful. They make you feel at home.

No breakfast, but there is a Trattoria and a very nice cafe just in front of the guest house.

Our stay at the Rovati Guest House september 2010 was nothing but excellent .We were 20min walk from the Vatican , Shops and eatery's. BUT in Rome you most certainly need a metro pass!
The Rovati family was friendly and very helpful. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!!

We enjoyed our stay here. We walked to everything, but if you are not a walker the metro is so close to this hotel and will take you to all the main sites. The room was nice and clean and the bathroom was fairly big considering you hear about how small they usually are in Europe. Yes the breakfast is a croissant and juice but heck some hotels don't give you anything. There are a lot of places to eat nearby. The Rovati family was so nice to us and were available anytime you needed something. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

My brother and I found this place to be really suitable for a 5 night stay! We were 20min walk from the Vatican , Shops and eatery's. BUT in Rome you most certainly need a metro pass!
There was a nice little coffee shop on the corner (to the left, on the other side of the road) Don't got to the shop on the right the guy was extremely RUDE but hey that's Europe for ya!
There was also the STRANDA - on C Dei Gracch (street) This is the local supermarket, Take a right out of the guest house towards the fountain in the round about, follow the path around don't cross over, past the Mexican Resturant (Aussie Waitress, Place a TAD pricey) - Then V Dei Gracch is just up the road on the right! With the Standa is on the left about half way down!
In Rome is VERY important to know where the local supermarket it because the food is terrible!
There were a few things we were disappointed with at the Guest House but noting MAJOR! The service was GREAT just very complicated to deal with, too many emails back and forth about when we were arriving My last email before we got on a train was see you at 2pm tomorrow, then I got another email (after we arrived) Are you arriving by Train or Plane, please tell us?! Like what does it matter see you at 2... She didn't arrive till 2.30, Walked passed us on the stairs twice, clearly we were waiting for her?? I had to call her in the end and she arrived!
In terms of privacy it was good! Breakfast, Don't relay on it was a cossant and some juice both not too tasty at all... not fresh anything?! - Go out an eat or get some cerial in ! Small fridge, TV had no English channels, but it did have WiFi :)
VERY modern!
We arrived to a double bed when we asked for TWO singles or Two Twins, we had to seperate the beds and make these out self, but she did help (the owner)
OVER ALL GREAT EXPERIENCE! :)
I would stay again...
