A View of Rome
Ranked #18 of 3,722 Rome B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 1, 2012

My husband and I stayed at this charming B&B as the first stop on our honeymoon in June. It was easy to book our stay directly through the website http://www.bbaviewofrome.it/sito/en/payments-penalty we simply sent an email requesting the room we wanted and we used Paypal to pay for the room deposit. From the very beginning the proprietors Livio and Daniele made things very simple for us. We exchanged a few friendly emails to confirm our booking and they offered to set up a transfer service from the airport directly to the B&B. We found the transfer service to be very convenient and money well spent.The airport is about 30 minuets drive from the city center or about 1 hour by train with all the intercity stops. The driver was waiting for us in the lobby when we arrived, we didn’t have to worry about finding the nearest train station or dragging our bags around. It made things simple and more enjoyable.

Prior to our arrival we requested an early check in and once again Livio and Daniele were very accommodating. When we arrived we were checked in right away and Livio helped us get acquainted with our room, and our surroundings. He provided a map and some suggestions on where to eat, and how to get around. As well as information on how to obtain a Roma Pass which is valid for unlimited public transportation and entrance into three historic sites or museums.

The B&B is small and cozy with only three or four rooms and a main lobby area. The rooms are simple but very comfortable and clean. Each room is equipped with a flat panel TV with satellite, WIFI access, small refrigerator, sound proof windows to eliminate street noise, and of course a million dollar view of Vatican City. The atmosphere is much like staying with close friends, Livio and Daniele are wonderful hosts, they will go to great lengths to make your stay in Roma feel like home. We were given a key to access the building at any time, so we didn’t have to feel constrained if we were out later in the evening. Livio and Daniele also own another B&B in the area called A Peace of Rome. More known for its modern decor than for the view, if that is something you are looking for it is worth checking out.

A View of Rome is centrally located within walking distance of many of Roma’s great tourist sites and a metro line and bus stops are also nearby. This area of the city has a great cultural vibe with fantastic shopping, markets, restaurants and a gelato shop just around the corner! What more could you ask for?

When we find ourselves in Rome again we would be delighted to stay at A View of Rome.

Seriously.. it is...

No faceless numbers mentality here, your a person with a name, and with a story.
The owners were excellent hosts. Infact if your after something a bit off the beaten track, ask one of the owners about his family's restaurant (if they still have it). It is outside of Rome but if their cooking is half as good as their hospitality, it would be well worth the trip.

And the view.. you definitively can't beat the view. Infact the Vatican kinda just sits there, dominating the skyline. St Peter's Square is but a 5 minute walk away.

I'll try and come back.. if I can get a booking.....

We had a wonderful stay at this B&B. It was clean, safe, well equipped, and centrally located. Only a few blocks to the Metro! Shopping and restaurants just outside. It was only a short walk to the Vatican and the Vatican Museum. The best part was the personal attention we received from our hosts at the B&B. They were thoughtful and interested in us having a good stay. I much enjoyed our conversations at breakfast and the tips they provided on the best way to get around the city. They told us where the best places to eat were located and set up reservations for us at local museums and restaurants. They were extremely thoughtful and helpful; we greatly appreciated everything they did for us. We look forward to our return Rome some day and another stay at this wonderful little B&B!

As ever Daniele & Livio were friendly & welcoming, the location of A View Of Rome is fabulous. The view is to die for and I could develop a pistachio croissant addiction.Nothing was too much trouble, we had recommendations for where to go, where to eat etc.I can't wait to go back

This is a lovely little B&B in a great location. I'm so pleased I made this choice as it suited us perfectly. We walked everywhere!

The place itself is comfortable and clean and Livio was exceptionally friendly and helpful.

Would definitely come back!

There are travellers and tourists. A travellers shuns the faceless corporate hotels as they want to immerse themselves in the environment and want to feel like one of the locals. A tourist wants things made easy for them which includes staying in the best locations and getting lots of advice. Both of these are well served by "A View of Rome". You could not want a better location or better hosts than Danielle and Livio. They both sum up everything that is good about Rome and are more than happy, and willing, to help out in any way they can - from making any arrangements you want before your arrival, to providing lots of helpful tips and advice on where to eat or how to beat the quesues , to just telling you hilarious stories over breakfast.
Grazie mille to both of them for a fantastic stay that made such a great impression on us that we would now only stay here the next time we are in Rome.

We spent 6 nights here and enjoyed every moment of it! Daniele and Livio were excellent hosts who helped us with all our bookings and served great breakfast every morning. The rooms are well maintained and have an excellent view of St Peters. Location was ideal for sightseeing all over the city with the metro and bus station within walking distance. Would definitely come back.. Thanks guys!
