“Amazing!”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

This place is absolutely beautiful! Friendly people working there, the room and bathroom are beautiful! We got to see another room too and it was a whole different design but also really pretty! My own house isn't this nice. My sister and I stayed for 1 night but wished we could have been there for more. Great place!

We've spent a week in Jolie B&B. Good place to stay in Rome!

LOCALISATION: GREAT
Next to Via Nazionale and near Termini Station (you don't really need a taxi, it's a distance you can walk even with suitcase trolleys) , close to Santa Maria Maggiore and Trajan's Column. The best thing about Via Palermo, where Jolie B&B is situated: near the hotel (Via Palermo - when you walk down the street in the direction to Termini) is a wonderful pizzeria open from 1 to 3 pm (I guess just during the siesta) where the locals eat their lunch - DELICIOUS pizza, about 2-3 euro per slice (they price the slices according to their weight).

THE ROOM: GOOD
The room was quite small but really nice, clean and very quiet - with air conditioning, electric kettle, small fridge (where you can keep cool drinks as well as some snacks), bathroom (shower+sink+two mirrors and toilet + hair dryer), small LCD TV (Italian cable channels - everything is dubbed, some English programmes had an option to switch off the dubbing). Sometimes the water pressure in the bathroom was very low and we had to wait a bit to have a real shower. The room was cleaned every day. Free and surprisingly fast (as for a B&B) WIFI.

BREAKFAST: SUFFICIENT
Breakfast was OK (sufficient - a bread roll, a croissant, a yoghurt, some cheese, butter, marmelade, honey and Nutella plus a toast and coffe - however everyday we had the same thing). Served 7-10, you have to go to the reception desk and the maid will bring it to your room.

THE STAFF: FRIENDLY but you should know some basic Italian to communicate
The staff was very friendly however I guess nobody really speaks English (the owner - a really nice eldery man can speak French, the other man at the reception desk knew some English words) but with Google Translate we managed to communicate quite fine.
We arrived earlier but there was no problem to leave the luggage and go sightseeing while the room was prepared. The owner (Rinaldo I guess) gave us a flyer with a discount to Il Barocco restaurant (free coffe/water) - the food was OK but nothing special.


OVERALL I would recommend Jolie B&B to everyone looking for a value-for-money B&B in the centre of Rome!

One last thing - in Rome you can drink water right from the tap - and all across the city there are hundreds of "noses" - taps with drinking water.

Everything in the city is within walking distance which was awesome since figuring out the public transportation can sometimes be tricky. The room was spotlessly clean, as was the private bathroom. AC is also included (an amenity that we take for granted in the US!). WIFI is also free if you bring your own laptop/iPad/smart phone.

The price was excellent for Rome during peak season. I'd consider staying here again.

A very nice room, with a nice bathroom, English speaking staff (2 out of 4, I guess), very accommodating, good wi-fi (why is it so seldom they have that, beats me) and it was cheaper then and another place which was way worse.

I wish I could give a top mark but the breakfast wasn't much, but it was a lot of, and the advertised air conditioning didn't work, but we got a fan instead.

Room Tip: The one receptionist checking me in was Romanian: +1

My sister and I requested a room for the Clarin hotel (in the same building) for 3 nights however there was only availability for the 3rd night so the manager, Rinaldo, personally e-mailed me and offered us the first 2 nights of our stay at the Jolie B&B for the same price. We really lucked out!
Pros: Great location, excellent staff who are there 24 hours, very clean, cute common room, a nice flat screen TV (we could only find Italian channels though), only 4 bedrooms so nice and quiet, refrigerator in the room, free Wifi with a strong signal, free breakfast. There is a shuttle available to and from the airport for an additional 40 Euro and because we arrived after 8 pm, it was 50 Euro but Rinaldo personally picked us up. He gave us tips about visiting certain sites and even allowed us to purchase and print our tickets in advance from his computer which helped us avoid a long wait.
Cons: a little stuffy in the room but we easily solved this by opening the window
Great B&B where the staff work really hard. It's right off a main road (Via Nazionale) and close to many sites. We walked to the Colosseum, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain and more. I will definitely stay here for my next visit in Rome.

The location was wonderful, we were on the same floor as the other group in our party, and the breakfast was wonderful. The staff were all lovely and very accommodating, however, we did have some issues and the lack of communication by the staff was a little strange.

When we arrived, my bed only had a sheet on it, and my cousin's bed had a duvet/doona cover, but nothing inside. Considering we stayed in the middle of November, this was quite frankly unacceptable. We didn't notice that there were no extra blankets in the room until we got back late and went to sleep, and as my sister's room did have a duvet on it, we assumed that ours would be the same. In the end we both slept with our coats on, we were that cold. We asked for extra blankets the next day, and they did put a duvet on my bed and something in my cousin's duvet cover, but I couldn't understand why they just didn't do that in the first place. As such, even though every night after I had a good night's sleep, I put 2 stars for sleep quality, as the first night I had a horrible sleep.

The sealing around our shower head was also broken, so the water sprayed out the sealing, hitting the walls and the ceiling, and getting everything very wet, aside from me. When we came back in the afternoon, the shower head was changed, without me saying anything, but again I didn't understand why they didn't say anything to us about it beforehand - such as 'we're getting it fixed tomorrow, sorry for the inconvenience.' In addition, my sister had booked a triple room, as that was all that was left. They arrived the day before us, and when the staff saw that they weren't using the single bed, they took it out and put it in our room, which was a twin room. They didn't say anything about it to my sister at all - they never asked her if she would mind.

All in all, they did some odd things that could, and did, cause inconvenience, and they never apologised or warned us in advance.
