“Great Location for a Family Holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

Retrome accommodation was superb!!! It was very clean, conveniently located near restaurants, shops, train station and tourist attractions. Can easily reach tourist attractions by walking and do shopping at the same time. Staff (Angela and Sandra) were extremely helpful. They have also taxi pick up service to and from the airport. The best!!!

I don't usually review but so happy with our stay here. Great value for money, very clean. Rooms are decorated in a retro style. Angela very friendly and helpful. Right next to the Colosseum and metro station, supermarkets and restaurants in the area. Can't speak highly enough especially if you are on a budget.

We spent nice time in this B&B very well placed near the Coliseo.
The team is very nice and helpfull. The room had a nice look and air conditioning !!

We can't tell about breakfast has we booked the room without it.

Only on bad point, the corridor could be a little bit noisy if your neighours are not discreet.

Room Tip: In Roma you visit everything by foot so choose a room or accomodation not too far from city center a...

I stayed at RetRome B&B with my mum for 3 nights, and our stay was just perfect:

The location was excellent: few metres away from the Colosseum. Moreover, the area where it is located is really handy and with more tourist atractions around, apart from the Colosseum. Several bars and restaurants to have breakfast, lunch or dinner, too.
The hotel is beautiful!! Very well decorated, in a retro style. Amazing oldie stuff in all the rooms and common areas.
The staff was very nice to us, as well.
It was very clean and tidy.

I would recommend this B&B to everyone that is looking for a handy and good value for money hotel in Rome.

Had an amazing stay at RetRome hotel, after traveling from Florence in some seriously hot weather was greeted by Angela who made us AMAZING espresso's and sat down and helped plan out, what to see and do. My girlfriend and I had been to Rome 5 times before between us. But Angela managed to find us some really great things to do, and we got to see some things we hadn't seen before. The breakfast that's included is down the road at a cute little cafe and was really good, We got the budget room, which was small but more than what we needed, was clean, really great use of space and comfortable. Was lucky enough to meet the owner too, who was a nice guy. Thanks to Angela and the team for a great stay, way to short!

Hi Ross,

Thank you for your great review. We appreciate the time you took in order to write this review and share your good experience with Retrome.
At a boutique hotel, we spend a lot of time in our check-in, trying to give our guest the extra information they will never receive from any guide or a book about Rome. Our special coffee is of course part of our welcome!!

We are looking forward to welcome you again in Rome or Barcelona

Oren

We stayed in the B&B for 5 nights in June and had a wonderful stay. Firstly, we were particularly impressed with how near the colosseum it actually was, the B&B is advertised as being a stones throw away, and it really was. When we arrived a very helpful member of staff came to greet us as soon as we rang the buzzer from outside, and she knew exactly who we were which was lovely, as well as the fact we were given a glass of water and a seat in the reception area, which was perfect after a long day travelling. We were given lots of information about the area, including a map with some local bars and restaurants which was extremely helpful. We particularly enjoyed eating at Luzzi, very cheap and cheerful and full of locals! We also had a very nice meal at Cafe Propaganda (a little pricey but worth it).Great recommendations!

We enjoyed strolling down the street and take in some roman air before eating our breakfast . The food was basic but delicious and typically Italian, freshly squeezed orange juice, cappuccino, ham and cheese toasty and a croissant, it was the perfect amount to set us up for the day. We were very impressed.

All the staff we came in to contact with at The Colosseum Garden were very friendly and helpful. What we particularly enjoyed about our stay was that it was like having our own apartment (having out own keys, kitchen facilities) but someone came and made our bed every day and gave us fresh towels which was great.

I think the only area for improvement is that there it was not clear which building Retrome is, it was a little hard to find. However I would definitely stay again and recommend it to others, we had a fabulous holiday!

Dear Emily,

Thank you for your nice review. We really appreciate the time you took in order to write this long review and share your good experience with Retrome with other travelers.

It is indeed nice to stay to close to the Colosseum, and to walk to all the major sightseeing areas of Rome. The location is amazing, but we are really happy that you had the good feeling of being close to the locals and not just to tourists.

We are looking forward to welcome you again in Rome or Barcelona

We spent great time in RetRome, because of the perfect location, the room and the helpful staff. The breakfast was nice too, although it was out of the hotel. This make it even better experience :)
The hotel is very close to the Colosseum, Just bare in mind that you won't see a sign on the building itself, but have a look at the buzzers when you get to the number of the building. There you will see the name of the hotel.
