“A perfect roman holiday!”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

The bed & breakfast is in a splendid location, super close to the colosseum & the roman forum. It's however in a very quiet authentic neighborhood of via celimontana with some good restaurants, walk up the street and you end up in a gorgeous park with villa, ideal to relax on a sunny afternoon. The building is beautiful and very elegant, our room was spacious and clean, as was the bathroom in the room. Breakfast is taken in a bar across the street, but if you ask the owner you can have breakfast on the inner garden terrace which is even better! We stayed 4 nights and would warmly recommend the place to anyone!!!

Good location but owner's son up late in kitchen making noise with friends. Mold in shower, no soap provided and no change of towels or sheets for one-week stay.

This Bnb was in an excellent location. It was about 3 blocks from the Colosseum, a 20 minute walk to the train station and near public transport. There were also a bunch of great Italian restaurants in that area that were away from the tourist crowds and flocked by locals at night. On a side note- after my trip to Europe I wouldn't go with tripadvisor recommendations for food bcs once they've got a great rating everyone goes there- instead ask the locals where to eat :) Back to the BNB....The bnb is in a nice appartment building. There are 4 or 5 rooms and each has its own bathroom but one. Our room was facing the garden which was a really charming area with potted lemon trees but we didn't use it much since we were out sight seeing all day. The bathroom and room were really clean and welcoming. The owner, Nicoletta, is a jolly Italian lady who doesn't speak much English but I was able to communicate with her in French. She was there to welcome us with hugs, and give us the keys to the room and apartment and then left the entire Bnb to us for the rest of the stay. She was also helpful in suggesting good (and cheap!) restaurants and what to order. We paid her the full amount when we arrived and she left us with the whole Bnb to ourselves. None of the other rooms were rented for that time (mid October) so having the place to ourselves was great but may not suit couples who like having "help" nearby, She did leave us with her phone number and her son has a photography studio in the building (but he doesn't speak much English.) Breakfast was offered at a Cafe Bar right infront of the apartment and was really delicious. They let us pick a pastry, hot drink, juice with tasty toast and jam which was all included in the room rental price which we thought was a great deal since so many places we had stayed at before in Europe made us pay for breakfast. Also the bnb is on the first floor (2nd floor in US) and has a lift! This was a treat for us since we had to carry our huge luggage up at most other places we stayed at in Europe.
All in all it was a great place to stay. It was a little confusing where to leave the key when we were leaving since there is no checkout/front desk area/person (we paid for everything the first day) but luckily Nicoletta's son was in his studio and we just left it with him. The only other downside was that although Nicoletta had wi-fi and our phones were detecting it it just didn't work. Luckily we found another wifi that only worked in the kitchen area and were able to check our mail using that.
I would advise anyone looking for a a great place to stay who doesn't mind walking a little to stay at this BNB. Its great value for a great price. You probably won't see the owner past the first day you check in so ask all your questions then- where to eat, where to catch the bus...If you don't speak French or Italian have your Italian dictionary and phrase book handy. Although, Nicoletta, and Italians in general, are so expressive you can understand and convey almost anything through hand gestures :)

Room Tip: The garden room is all the way at the end of the hall and is the most private and quiet! Although ha...
