Locanda al Viminale
Ranked #27 of 3,722 Rome B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 16, 2012

The room facing the back courtyard is definitely the quietest i feel. This room is great because it limits the sounds of slamming doors that most often is experienced at hotels/B&Bs due to where it is situated. Every morning we got breakfast from our hosts and ate in the back courtyard. One morning we had to leave earlier because we had a vatican tour and Carla packed a breakfast for us which was so sweet! It was a great stay overall and the room was pretty and clean. The only thing i would advise is more toilet paper LOL and change the towels if they are thrown on the floor. Other than this it was a wonderful stay with wonderful hosts. You will enjoy your stay here.

Room Tip: back courtyard for quiet

We stayed for 3 nights last week. Carla the owner was very helpful. She emailed me prior to our arrival to see when we would be arriving and if we needed transportation from airport. On our arrival she gave us a map and circled areas of interest. She speaks wonderful English! Our breakfast consisted of typical European foods- croissant, nutella, jam and coffee.After we asked for extra coffee one day - the next day we had 2 containers of coffee on our tray" She will leave a paper on her desk for you to write what time you want breakfast the next day.
Carla is a very helpful host. She gave us an umbrella to use one day when it was raining- she also let us borrow a electric plug adapter when ours didn't work.
The room was clean and big by European standards.
There is free wi-fi also. The location is great - walking distance to all main attractions. The termini bus station is a short 5 minute walk away also if you want to take train to Vatican.
Overall nice place and highly recommend!

Room Tip: Keep windows closed at night to help with street noise.the room is air conditioned

Everything was lovely about this B&B type atmosphere. The people were wonderful and helpful in every way possible. When an extra room came open they gave it to us to better accommodate our two children at no extra cost. The sheets were starched, the airconditioning was welcomed and the wireless was free and well set up (you didn't have to keep logging in). Everything was spotless. The breakfasts were lovely. Carla spoke English and helped us with restaurants and site seeing. We were on the last leg of our Europe trip and as such, exhausted. We got up at 5 am to leave for the airport. Carla had a cab there for us for 6 am and provided us with breakfast to heat up so that we would not set off home hungry. We were grateful to have Locanda al Viminale at the end of our journey.

My husband and I, along w/ our 4 month old really enjoyed staying at Locanda al Viminale. Our baby slept in the baby cot (looks like a pack n play), which was provided for our use, along w/ baby sheets. We also used the stroller, since we had brought our Gracco carset/frame stroller and our son was too hot in that set up. The stroller provided was actually easier to push on the cobblestone roads.

The breakfast was yummy. Croissants, yougurt, juice, coffee, tea, and a 'toast' like bread.

The owners were super sweet and always there to help if needed. The room was clean, no ordor, and we really enjoyed our stay. We would stay there again!
thanks :-)

For our first trip alone with our friends we couldn't have chosen a better place. Carla and Paolo were really sweet from the start, always making sure we had everything we needed. Carla always made sure we got our breakfast even when we woke up at 6 am, and Paolo woke up on our very last day at dawn to help us get a taxi to the airport and carry our luggage.
As for the location, it is very close to Termini, which was great since we wanted to go to Venice for the day and had to take an early train and a late one back to accomplish it.
All in all, a great spot that I will always recommend.

My boyfriend and I spent 4nights in this B and B. I could not recommend it enough. We were greeted by Carla and Paulo who couldnt be any nicer. 'They said this is our home..now make it yours!'. They offered advice, tips, looked up train timetables for us.
Just made the stay such an ease for us.
Such an amazing visit ,Rome is just amazing.

We stayed for 3 nights at Locanda al Viminale. Overall, the stay was pretty good. The hosts were very nice. The rooms were clean. Breakfast was served in the room at a time of our choosing.

The location is approximately a 5 minute walk from Termini Station and about 15 minute walk from Colosseum.

The only complaint was that midway through our stay, we were asked to switch rooms, so we never got completely comfortable and settled in.

our goal is what is best for our customers.
I had liberated a larger room, you can see that the site covered with purple, so I thought I favor the customer.
We have moved us their bags, changed the linen.
We told the customer that at the time seemed very satisfied with the change!!!
