“Perfecto!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

We only stayed at Cenci B&B one night but upon arriving to our room and meeting Emanuele we almost re-booked our flight! This B&B is perfectly located, right next to the Fontana di Trevi making it a great choice. The rooms and the whole B&B is designed with a good taste offering large rooms, great amenities and space reflecting Rome. Emanuele is a very friendly person eager to spend time to explain the best routes to visit the city and he is concentrated on the guest satisfaction. We received multiple emails from him describing different ways of getting to his B&B, using taxis, metro and private shuttle making is so much easier to make a right decision. We had some troubles finding the B&B itself since it is not marked in any way but it was worth it. If we will ever travel back to Rome we will definitely choose Cenci B&B. The staff was great and even though language was a barrier everybody was optimistic and helpful.

We stayed at this B&B for five nights. It was a great choice! We had a private bathroom and shower. The room and bathroom were very clean. There was also an ac that we used when the room got hot. The location is great for exploring tourist sights, literally next to the Trevi fountain. The staff is typically present during the early mornings to set up for breakfast. We are independent travelers and don't need daily assistance. The price was very reasonable for the great location and good accommodations. If I were to return to Rome in the future I'd absolutely stay here again.

My friends and I travelled 5 cities in Europe in July 2013. Our first stop was Rome.
I had previously booked a hotel in the Vatican city, but decided to move it due to location.
Cenci B&B has a great location as it is so close to the main attractions, shops and little streets restaurants, Trevi Fountain is literally a 2 minutes walk.
The room was nicely decorated, large and had everything we needed including a great air condicioning. Rome is really hot at this time of the year.
Although the hotel is a bit difficult to find, we used the locals to guide us.
We met Maricone on our arrival, she was very helpful and guided us to the next building where the room was located. She also made sure to help us with our luggage.
Arriving at the room we meet the lovely Francesca, who was a lovely Sicilian lady, who we fell in love with straight away. What a sweetheart!
The breakfast was served in the this nice and cosy kitchen, and we had all we needed, including freshely prepared capuccinos.
Francesca and Maricone was really friendly and helpful. Which made our stay even more pleasant.
Rome is a great and stunning city, I will certainly come back and would definitely stay at Cenci again.

Missing our trip dearly! What an amazing time we had.

This was a cute little B&B in a great location. It was a little difficult to find at first because it is not marked on the outside. Owner and staff was very friendly and helpful. Although not always there, you could call them if needed. However, we did not have a phone. This was our first time to Europe, but the 4th destination on the trip; so we didn't really need the staff for much anymore.
Our room window faced a side street and was not too noisy. There is a restaurant right outside the front door that we ate at, and it was pretty good. Apparently it is a popular place to go, after we sat down, a line formed waiting for available tables.
Our room was very nice and clean. It is exactly what the pictures show.
Breakfast was good, not a huge selection, but enough for my husband and I.
We were very happy with our stay and would stay here again.

We stayed 6 nights at the Cenci B&B in Rome in the Red room and loved it. The room was clean and tidy and the staff were wonderful especially Udon (??) who was terrific. Breakfast is provided each morning with a variety of cereal, meats, cheese, fruit, juice and tea/coffee which we found sufficient to start our day. The B&B is located within meters of the Trevi Fountain, as well as, any number of cafes and restaurants available at the door step. The B&B is also within walking distance to the Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Piazza Navona etc if you don't mind walking (which we don't) and only about an easy 10 minute walk to the Barberini Metro stop where you can then get to the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Vatican City, Ostia Antica etc. We were glad we found this B&B and given the cost of some hotels in central Rome were overall satisfied with the value for money offered at Cenci B&B and would stay again.

Difficult to find, side street, third floor so name on a label by a bell push, but well worth the effort.
Actually the biggest room in all the hotels we used Rome, Venice, Paris. Clean, good explanatory greeting from the staff with map and recommendation for the Chianti restaurant next door (which WAS very good food and according to my wife the best G & T in Rome). Very adequate breakfast. Very central ( yards from the Trevi Ftn. Price very reasonable. Although a tourist avenue outside, soundproofing good with no sleep disturbance.

My father and I stayed here this past Sunday into Monday. The staff were so helpful and accommodating. My dad and I did not want to share a bed so they brought another bed into our room, which was great. The room was adorable and in the perfect location. The building only says the number, so it was hard to find initially. But it is nice to not be in a commercialized clearly marked hotel. Just be careful of pickpocketers and people selling you things who will follow you up several blocks until you give them some Euros. I highly recommend this site. The jacuzzi shower was quite fun too :P
