Matilde is a great host, we stay two night in her apartment, she was with us in the apartment during our arrival, check out and every morning preparing breakfast for us, she give us lots of advise and recommendation for our itinerary, and the breakfast was great too!

I have to give a credit to the living room which was so lovely and comfortable, can compare with the suite of any five star hotel :), another credit was given to its location, the metro was located jut around the corner and only 10mins walk to Vatican

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Matilde during our recent holiday to Rome. The rooms are spacious and meticulously clean and the B&B is well located in a quiet area yet close to the metro, shops and Vatican. Matilde was a wonderful host, offering advise on places to eat and getting around town even going to the trouble of printing out maps and directions for us. On our second morning at breakfast we asked her about some yummy custard filled donuts we remembered eating during a previous holiday 20 years ago and asked where can we buy them? To our surprise the next morning on the breakfast buffet were fresh "bombe fritte" ( custard filled donuts) which she had so kindly bought as a surprise for us!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Matilde and highly reccommend it.

Rome is a busy, intense and wonderful city, but we needed a quiet haven to recover at the end of each day and For My Friends B and B was absolutely perfect. When we arrived, Matilde met us downstairs and effortlessly our bags went up a floor on the little lift to her flat and our new home. We are a couple in our 70's and 80's so convenience might be more important for us than some and we found walking to Vatican City a pleasure with just the right number of gelato shops and bars on the way to make it a pleasure at any time of the day. Matilde was a gracious host and served up local knowledge and her famous breakfast with equal ease. We can't imagine staying any other place when we return. With the kindest regards Bud and Joan, Edmonds Washington

Room Tip: Both rooms are terrific and large by European standards.

Staying at Matilde’s home was very pleasant, we felt as we were at our own home!
It is a very charming and cozy place.
Despite the short time, it was unforgettable in all the aspects. Our bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and we had at our disposal everything we needed, even more! The breakfast was marvelous (boiled eggs, various kinds of juices and yogurts, breads, jams, croissants, cakes, fruits, etc). There is no better way to start a journey in Rome!!!
Another plus is related to the localization of the B&B; it's located near to the subway station (Ottaviano) and the Vatican. We could also do a lot of things on foot.
Matilde is a very nice and helpful person. Whatever you ask for, she does her best to answer your questions. She gave us a lot of useful tips for things that we could do and enjoy at our stay.
Matilde, your Bed & Breakfast is a little jewel hidden in this inspiring city and we'd love to come again!
We thanks for the opportunity to have staying in a so nice place!
All the best!!

What more can be said about Matilda and her wonderful accommodation, its all been said!.
Matilda sets a very high standard and all other B&B's should be measured by the quality of service she provides.
Anyone intending to visit Rome should avail themselves of the chance of staying in the best place with the best hostess.
Thanks again Matilda,we had a great stay and hope to return one day.
Fond regards,

For My Friends B&B is by all means my wife's and my "home" whenever we go to Rome which is at least once a year.
The house is always incredibly clean and the rooms are spacious and comfortable with a modern and artistic feel, provided with everything is needed.
The location is very convenient, really close to the metro and main bus services and just at a walking distance from the Vatican.
There are plenty of family run restaurants "trattorie", bars and one of the most famous jazz clubs just minutes away from the house.
Matilde is the best host you can possibly meet, kind, friendly and always so helpful and caring.
The breakfast is delicious and very generous.
if you are in Rome, For My Friends B&B is the only choice if you truly want to enjoy your staying and I would strongly recommend it to everyone.
