Ranked #609 of 3,721 Rome B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 11, 2011

Upon your arrival you need to call and arrange exact time of check in, because there is no reception. We arrived 5min before and Mr.Corrado was already there and waiting for us, shows us the room, give us keys, instructed us about AC, internet and breakfast coupons. We have had some questions so we called Mr.Corrado on given mobile number and he answered and helped us even it was 11pm.

Breakfast is on coffee shop nearby, and you can take one croissant (with or without chocolate :( ) and coffe (of your choice), modestly, but ok to start the day.

B&B (more accurate rooms only) is situated in lovely building on 3rd floor (with tiny elevator [not recommended for claustrophobic person]) in one apartment and it has 4 rooms nice newly decorated. Rooms cleaned every day, towels changed to.

Location of this place is really great, close to Vatican (~10min walking), Vatican Museum (5min walking), Bus start/stop (5min walking) and BUS 81 is your friend, it will took you to/from all must see location (Spanish steps, Fontana di Trevi, coliseum, Piazza Navona) for just 1€ :), or you can walking and for about 30min you are on almost every site you want to be.

We searched for accommodation in Rome and reviewed literally 100 hotels and B&Bs and for hotel like this far outside the town prices are at least twice as expensive, and for B&B we didn’t find nothing even on pictures good as this really was. I truly suggest this B&B to anyone going to Rome.

Room Tip: room number 4 are the only room looking in atrium (1,2,3 loking to the street)

If you don't have a usable cell phone when you're traveling to Italy, don't stay here. Given the reviews, we thought we would be fine staying here WITHOUT 24hr reception. However, we saw the owners exactly once through our entire stay, and they caused us three fretful nights. Here is how I break it down:

Starting point = 3 stars

(+ 1 star) Rooms are modern and recently refurbished.

(+ 1 star) Location is within 2 minutes of the metro.

(- 2 stars) Hotel switched rooms on us on the second night—without telling us! Can you imagine the shock you'd be in after coming to your room at night and finding your stuff gone and replaced by someone else's bags and the room slept in and used by someone else!?!? We eventually figured it out that they moved most our stuff (although they forgot some of our toiletries in the bathroom) without our knowledge, and put us into a much smaller room. Luckily, none of the other hotel guests stole any of our stuff, since the room was essentially open to everyone for the whole day. We emailed them to ask why our stuff was moved and if it would happen again, and they didn't respond at all. The following night, we found that they left another key to our room in the door, so again, others had free access to all of our stuff.

(- 0.5 star) On Booking.com, it says they accept credit cards. We confirmed this with Interno 5 via email. When we arrived, they demanded cash. Because they were never around, we had to leave full payment in cash in the room, and trust that they would give us a receipt (and not claim that they never received the cash).

(- 0.25 star) Because the hotel doesn't have a 24hr reception, you have to tell them when you arrive. They were almost 30 minutes late, and we were worried they wouldn’t show and we would have no place to stay.

(- 0.25 star) They did not give us a remote for the air conditioner or tell us how to turn it on. We had to climb up to turn it on, and in the new room (where the AC was too high), we had to scrounge through all of the hall closets to find a remote. Otherwise, the rooms are very stuffy and hot.

(-0.25 star) Cafe where you have a breakfast coupon doesn't open until 8am or so. Thus, if you're waking up early to stand in line at the Vatican or to catch an early train, you may miss out on the included breakfast. However, the cafe was nice enough to let us redeem an extra breakfast coupon a day early since we were missing breakfast the following day.

Excuse me for the rudeness of the staff, who was dismissed. A new management now works at Inside 5. I hope you give us the opportunity to be forgiven ... come back soon!

We spent 4 very pleasant nights at this hotel. The room was quite small it was adequate in every way. The whole hotel was spotlessly clean. But, for me the main attractiion of this hotel was the friendliness and helpfulness of the owners and staff - particularly the breakfast chef who made our breakfast experiences on the roof terace so enjoyable.
I think the location was ideal because it was easy to escape the main tourist haunts to expereience more of the true Rome and easy enough to either walk, bus or tube your way into the main attractions.
I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone.

My wife and I stayed for 6 days at Interno5 and we had a great time. The rooms were cleaned everyday (fresh towels and linen everyday as well as 24 hrs hot/cold water) and it was a sizeable room with all ammenities. The wifi was not working when in our room but cable was there and they tried a lot to get it it working again. It was quiet and very private and the people were friendly and helpful be it with checking in early or arranging trasnport, giving us advice etc. The rate for the room was great for the period we were there. One of the best things were the location, which was literally a minute by walk to the metro and it had supermarkets and cafe's etc around in plenty. This meant that we could keep coming back to the room to rest a little before we set out again.

One thing we probably missed was english television channels as often after a long day we wanted to just watch a movie and unwind. Most of the television was in italian (but i guess this is common on most hotels).

The hotel does not have a 24 hr reception but we dint require it much as Dario was always a phone call away and the owners stayed in one room on the same floor so they could be contacted in case of an emergency.

There was a mc donalds, kebab place and burger king not too far aways if we you get fed up of eating pasta and pizza all the time and want a change.

Overall we had a great time and would recommend it to anyone who would like to stay well in rome and not spend too much.
