We stayed in Rome for 5 days and really enjoyed our stay at David's B&B Zen Trastevere. David himself is absolutely nice and helpful. Every morning he serves the breakfast at your room which you choose the evening before. You can always choose 2 drinks (hot and cold) and 2 kinds of food (e.g. scrambled eggs, toasts with jam or fesh fruits, etc.). Overall, the breakfast was always tasty and sufficient but if you expect a big breakfast (which will be hard to find in Italy anyways) you will be disappointed (or have to go to a expensive hotel).
The B&B has 3 lovely rooms, one with a private bathroom (the black&white). Every room looks totally different from the others and all are very lovely decorated. We stayed 3 nights at the B&W room with private bathroom which was perfect. The 2 other nights we stayed in the - also very nice - purple room and shared the bathroom with another couple. All in all, this was no problem but the shared bathroom is quite small and maybe needs some repair work here and there. But overall, if you want to have a very lovely and affordable solution, then also the shared rooms are abolutely fine (and they have nice, little balconies which the B&W-room does not have!!).
One thing which could be improved are the mattresses of the beds which we found quite hard and not extremely comfortable. But we are used to more soft ones. So if you don't mind this will not disturb you.
The area of Trastevere itself we found really great and lively (which does NOT mean to load or stressful). There are lots of beautiful little streets, everywhere are restaurants (but not all of them serve good food, you have to look for the not so touristic ones), bars and small shops. You can walk to most of Rome's attractions, and if you don't want to walk the tram is right in front of the B&B.
Overall, a great stay in Rome although we had some rain every day. And if you decide to stay at Trastevere, David's B&B is absolutely recommendable!!!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The B & B Zen Trastevere is the fruit of an idea that has recently taken shape: to create a setting where guests are offered every kind of comfort in a colorful and carefree environment, and also a little oasis of peace right in the middle of the Eternal City. The B&B is centrally located, right on Viale Trastevere, but is set within a courtyard so it is quiet and peaceful.The B&B, which opened in early 2011 with three rooms, has recently acquired a second B&B on the same floor so now there are seven double bedrooms total. The new rooms have been decorated with the same simple philosophy as the original three rooms, using the colors and diversity that our clients have always been enthusiastic about.In apartment A there are 3 double rooms, one with private bath en suite, and 2 which share a bathroom. All rooms have air conditioning and free WIFI Internet connection 24 hours a day. The rooms are furnished with care and elegance, with colors that make them welcoming and relaxing. Upon request, a third bed can be added in each of these rooms.In apartment B there are 4 double rooms, each with its own bathroom (one is outside the room). All rooms have air conditioning and free WIFI Internet connection 24 hours a day. Upon request, a third bed can be added in two of these rooms.Room prices include a rich and hearty continental breakfast which is served in the kitchen of each apartment.At B&B Zen Trastevere you will be welcomed with courtesy and availability, and by the enchantment of the true essence of Italian style. ... more less
