Reviewed July 27, 2010

Four of us stayed with Daniele and Livio and just loved it. They made us feel like family. The rooms are clean, bright, comfortable and the location was perfect! You really can see St. Peter's dome from our window. My only problem is that if we ever return to Rome we'll never be able to get a room with Daniele and Livio as they will likely be booked up. If you can't get in to "View of Rome" they have just opened another B&B which isn't far away so ask about that one. The Hop on Hop off Bus isn't far away and is a great starting point for your visit to Rome.

My husband and I stayed at the View of Rome mid July for 4 nights and our experience was absolutely magnificent! After our trip through Italy (Rome was our first stop then off to Florence and Venice...if we did it all over again we would definitely stay longer in ROME).
We were picked up at the airport by limo (Daniele suggestion which for the price you can't beat it! There was no way after an overnight flight we were going to try to find our way into the heart of Rome, and Taxi was about the same price so we went with the driver and it was wonderful). After we arrived 9:30am Daniele greeted us and immediately made us a cappuccino and sat down with us to plan out our stay there.
The B&B is nestled up on the sixth floor directly across from the Vatican and the pictures of the view truly are what you will take when you get into your room! The rooms are of nice size, very modern, and the bathroom is a modern European bathroom. As for the TV you get about 3 English channels, although by the time my husband and I got back from our adventures there wasn't much time before we were off into dream land. The only thing the B&B is missing is some sort of a clock for the rooms so you can set an alarm if you would like- we used our cell phones for the alarm but I was always nervous that we wouldn't get up and miss something!
Daniele & Livio's recommendations are priceless and you should listen to them because they truly do know the city and are looking out for you as well. They sell the ROMA pass right there at the B&B which was great (you spend 25 euro for the pass and get 25 worth of museums, we did Villa Borghese and the Coliseum, then you get 10-50% off other attractions as well as you get to ride public transportation bus/metro for free for three days) well worth the investment because you will get it back in no time at all. Daniele also hooked us up with a company to visit the Vatican so you don't have to wait in those crazy lines, and my husband and I wanted to do a day trip to Pompeii and Daniele was able to recommend a company that did tours and it was just what we were looking for. They even packed us a breakfast for the tour which was absolutely scrumptious...thanks Livio!
We truly cannot say enough about A VIEW OF ROME...it was heavenly and the best place that we stayed at during our trip through Italy. As for some eating recommendations while you are there....
You must have dinner at Osteria de Memmo I Santori which is just over the Umberton1 bridge (cross the street and look for the staircase on the left-hand side,,, go down the stairs and you will see a little alley and there will only be one restaurant sign and you will not want to go to Rome without stopping by Osteria de Memmo and you must have the Antipasti (13 euro a piece.... delicious)
If you happen to get sick of Italian cuisine and are a Chinese food lover you will want to go to the Chinese restaurants right on the corner from the B&B. We both had appetizers, rice, and main dish for fewer than 20 Euros all together!!! FRESH very fresh!
As for Gelato we had it at the place directly underneath the B&B and it was creamy and smooth, however Old Bridge galeteria is just to the right towards the Vatican and I must say that I had Gelato at least once if not twice a day from there!
THanks Daniele and Livo for the fabulouse service, wonderful converstions, and welcoming stay...you truly have a talent!!!!

We stayed five nights at A View of Rome in July, and the experience was marvelous. The room was modern, comfortable, beautifully appointed, and completely clean. The view of the Vatican dome from our window was spectacular, especially at night. The location was great and easily accessible by foot or Metro. But most important, Daniele and Livio made staying there like staying with personal friends. They epitomize perfect hospitality. They are warm, welcoming, and well informed about the city. They treated us like family, serving us not only delicious and special breakfasts made to order, but remembering what we like best each morning. And we loved that breakfast is served at the time you request, unlike anywhere else we stayed in Italy. We now regard Daniele and Livio as friends, and we are planning our next visit to their B&B as soon as we can get there. Can't recommend A View of Rome enough.

Not only did we enjoy the room, the service and the location, but we were amazed by the friendly owners, Danielle and Livio, who answered our inquiry by email and sent us helpful tips before we even got there! They manage the place so well and give you the best welcome ever, making you feel @ home. You will get free directions and tips on things to do and see and where to eat or shop, you name it! Glad we stayed there and will surely recommend the same to everyone who may want to stop by Rome!

This review is long overdue, however better late than never.

We had a fabolous time at A View of Rome. Even though it is not located right in the center of Rome you can get anywhere really easily. Service is great and Daniele and Livio always look out for you. They know Rome inside out and they aways give you great tips.

Out of experience I can tell you that the View is REAL. You can see the Vatican from your room. Guaranteed!!!

I trully recommend you to stay at a View of Rome (take it from someone that spends more than 100 nights/year at hotels).

Enjoy it!

Nothing is too much trouble for Daniele and Livio. Our stay in Rome was memorable as a result of their warm hospitality and helpfulness. As soon as we arrived, we were shown into comfortable rooms with an amazing view of Saint Peter's Basilica. Rooms are quite spacious by European standards and quiet (not too much street noise). We were then given helpful tips as to where to eat and what to do. Also, Daniele assisted us in the next leg of our journey by printing out train and ferry timetables, etc. This then put our mind at ease to enjoy the rest of our too-short stay in Rome. It was suggested that we dine at a restaurant out of town on our second evening. We were picked up from the door (such a relief after hours of walking) and taken to a beautiful restaurant and then driven "home" afterwards.

Breakfasts are amazing here! After days of continental breakfasts of bread and pastries, we were treated to bacon and eggs and an unlimited supply of coffee to set us on our way for a day of exploring this beautiful city.

In short, after hotel-hopping around Europe, it was a pleasure and delight to come across this B&B run with the dedication of people who are passionate about their business and I felt that we really arrived as guests here and left as friends.

Don't hesitate!
