“A great stay in excellent B & B”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

Thank you for a very pleasant stay at RetRome Colosseum Garden B & B in Sept this year. We experienced very friendly and professional reception from Angela. The rooms were very comfortable and the beds assured us of a good night's rest. The coffee machine and very nice Italian coffee was a great bonus to two coffee snobs! A special mention to the punctuality of the transfers to and from the airport. We had a great stay and wonderful meals right there close to our accommodation which we appreciated. The location of the B & B is terrific - close to the Colosseum and to various bus stops and the subway. We would definite stay there again!

Dear Maria,

It was a pleasure to host you 2 time during your trip in Italy.
Thanks for your compliment for the free coffee we provide. A real Italian coffee is a must during your stay with us, and we are happy that you liked it.
We hope to be able to welcome you again in Rome, or in Barcelona at our new vintage boutique hotel there.

Warm regards from all the team of Retrome.

We had a very nice stay in Rome and RetRome! With the tips from the helpful staff, we had a very good start of our short vacation in Rome. We did have some complains, but those were swiftly resolved. We recommend RetRome and the quiet neighborhood with some very good Italian bars and restaurants. One advice: don’t buy a hop on hop off ticket for the boat trip on the Tiber. Safe your money for a canal trip in Amsterdam.

We have just got back from Rome and stayed at the Colosseum Gardens. We were travelling with our 9mth old son, the friendly staff could not have been more helpful in meeting his and our needs. The rooms were clean and adequate (with the provision of a travel cot), and the use of the small kitchen was invaluable for cleaning and preparing our son's milk bottles. The staff are not on site and so the reception is not open all the time but they leave phone numbers to contact them at any time. I would definitely recommend this place and would stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a larger room if staying with a baby.

Location location! The staff are very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, clean, well furnished and air conditioned ( a must in sweltering summer weather). Access to a small but adequate communal kitchen will appeal to some. Be aware the rooms are 3 flights up if you have heavy luggage and there is no lift. A big plus is the ability to wash clothes and hang to dry in a courtyard on floor one. For the height of the summer season the tariff is excellent, given its location. The included breakfast is very light 'Italian', so don't expect a feast (unless you pay extra), but it is in a cozy little place not more than a couple of minutes walk away and it serves excellent coffee! In sum, we would stay there again and have no reservation in recommending it to any couple who want value, comfort and don't expect a palace. John and Elaine Manners

Two of my friends and I stayed here recently. The B&B was in a great location...5 minute walk to the Colosseum and 10 minutes to the metro. It is located in a nice neighborhood with good restaurants. The breakfast was located at a bar around the corner from the B&B. Breakfast was good--coffee, juice, yoghurt, cereal, fruit, and a croissant. The B&B is not extravagant, but an inexpensive, clean, cute place!

People were very friendly and accommodating. Rooms were air conditioned and comfortable. Not a lot of room for luggage and bathrooms were small. Overall I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a place to stay at a great price. We are not talking about a hotel or hotel amenities but I would stay here again. We had 4 couples and took up 4 rooms, one of which is very small.
