“Great little B & B just out of Rome Central.”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Picked up by private car at airport and driven to backstreet B & B which was a very pleasantly appointed accommodation.
Breakfast was brought to the room and eaten in the courtyard. easy(300 metres) to tube then 2 stops to major sights. Even though it was late October, Rome was busy and very warm. Survived a pickpocket attempt as did the pickpocket(a 12 year old gypsy girl) though she disappeared very quickly when I yelled at her. Sights of Rome phenomenal and mind boggling for an Aussie!

On arrival, the non-descript apartment block did not look auspicious but five floors up is a perfect haven of luxury and quiet. Our room was beautifully appointed, the bed was comfortable and the private terrace was a delight even in November. Alessandro and Maricar were most welcoming and helpful. The breakfasts were a feast for the eyes and scrumptious to eat. The location was ideal for exploring Rome - altogether perfect.

We stayed at this lovely B&B for four nights in November. The reason we chose this B&B was due to the excellent reviews we had seen on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed with our choice.
Alessandro and Maricar were wonderful hosts. They couldn't do enough for us and helped us with all our needs. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this little gem.
It may not be in the city centre but do not let that put you off, it is less than 2 minutes walk to the Metro with all of Rome on your doorstep. The room was lovely and although we didn't get much use of the private terrace ( it was November ) it was a delight and must be a joy in the summer.
The rooms and bathroom was spotless and the breakfast brought to your room by Alessandro was amazing.
If we go back to Rome there would be no need to search for accommodation as we know exactly where we will be staying.

Just returned from visiting Rome. Stayed at the Althea Inn, and very glad that we did as the location to both the Metro and Overland trains could not have been better which gave us very easy access to all the historical locations and also the airport.
Althea is a perfect little oasis. The rooms are lovely and the private terrace was a delight, everything was just perfect and all due to the owner, Alessandro.

The Inn received the 2012 Tripadvisor Award and we have to say that it was well earned. We would highly recommend a stay and hope that 2013 will also be an award winning year.

Don't let the graffiti in the area frighten you. We weren't sure we had the right address when walking to Althea Inn, but it turned out to be all the great things others have reported and more! Alessandro is a gracious host and his accommodations are contemporary, comfortable and very clean. He offered the use of a tablet for internet connection which was very helpful. If we ever get back to Rome, we will certainly contact Alessandro to stay at Althea Inn - location, nearby restaurants, metro and host are top notch!!
