nfiteatro Castrense is an excellent location for a vacation in Rome. Located in the heart of Rome, 5 minutes from San Giovanni underground station, leading to tourist attractions, clean and neat, offers guests including breakfast at a very reasonable price. Rocco and Emanuele are sure to please all guests. Excellent, deserves praise !!!

I stayed in the B&B for 3 nights with my sister. The owners were so friendly and helpful and were able to answer all our questions, despite the language barrier. The B&B was quiet and a good place to relax and get some rest after all the sightseeing we were doing. We had read the reviews saying the cappuccino's with breakfast were amazing, and we agree! The breakfast basket was brilliant and very generous. We had to leave very early in the morning after our last night to catch a bus to the airport and when we told the owner he immediately brought in a breakfast basket with lots of packaged pastries and some juice boxes for us to take with us and eat on the plane. We were extremely grateful! The only downside really is the fact there is only one bathroom but we very rarely had to wait to use it. We found the location to be okay. It is away from the sights, but the metro is so close that this wasn't a problem for us. We were even able to walk to the Termini train station at 4 in the morning to catch our bus without any trouble (because the metros only run from 5:30am onwards).

All in all, we had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend the B&B to anyone visiting Rome.

The staff was very nice and welcoming. Breakfast in room was a nice light snack and coffee or tea- most food was packaged but not bad. Location was pretty good, a bit of a walk from metro if you are carrying luggage but only if you're a wimp. It's a little away from the hustle and bustle but not too far to be inconvenient.

Our stay at Anfiteatro Castrense B&B was excellent from the start. Rocco, the owner of the establishment was very kind from day one and extremely courteous and understanding despite our language barrier (us- little to no Italian, him- little English, but better than our Italian).

For some bizarre reason we thought it would be a good idea to walk from Termini Station to the B&B instead of taking Rocco's advice of taking the metro to San Giovanni or Re di Roma. Yeah... we got lost but luckily we were on the correct street when we passed the B&B's address and Rocco's friend Emanuele waved and called to us, eventually running a block to us to lead us in the right direction to the B&B, help with our bags and get us situated.

From the start Rocco and Emanuele made us feel very comfortable and gave very helpful information about easy to walk to locations and ways to prominent attractions as well as local restaurants and a laundromat if needed.

The location isn't quite in the heart of Rome but after a couple of days being in the heart of Rome it is very nice to be in a very clean, spacious, quiet room with a balcony, in-room sink and even clothes line if needed.

Nearby is a chain fast food pizza joint that makes great anchovy and squash blossom pizza that you can enjoy on your room balcony with a bottle of good cheap wine readily available everywhere in Rome.

Also nearby the Re di Roma station is a series of little restaurants featuring pizza or kabobs, but best of all a very nice and decently priced gelataria that you can even get gelato by the kilo in foam containers to take home with you! (Try the Nero dark chocolate, mmm)

Rocco makes a good, filling breakfast basket for you with assorted pastries and will make fresh cappuccino or espresso at your request each morning. The cappuccino was quite delicious and the foamiest I've ever had (there was plenty of coffee too, no worries!)

If you can make it for a meal to the restaurant Enoteca D'iore where Emanuele cooks at he'll give you each a complimentary glass of wine or prosecco which was very nice.

The rooms are not luxurious, but we did not expect that. They did exceed our expectations in cleanliness and comfort and there was plenty of storage space. The addition of the sink in our room for ease to brush our teeth, wash face and etc instead of using the communal bathroom was great.

All in all we very much enjoyed our stay at Anfiteatro Castrense B&B. It was a constant joy in the middle of a crazy first trip to Rome!
