Don't bother looking anywhere else. Matilde is a lovely hostess and the rooms (2) are clean modern and spacious. It is about 2 blocks from the Vatican and very close to the subway and bus lines. We will stay here again. We are 4 American women tourists traveling together and it was perfect for the 4 of us - 2 in each room. We actually stayed in May of 2013, but I didn't know how to use tripadvisor until now!

Room Tip: The room closest to Matilde's apartment is the larger room with a small loft. You have to go in...

It was very comfortable accommodation and very good location which close to MRT and Vaticano for sight seeing. Apartment owner is very friendly to take care guests. My family has a very great stay and we will back here next time when visit Roma.

My family and a friend stayed at For My Friends B&B for 3 days. We occupied both rooms. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The bathrooms are spacious, modern and very clean. Matilde went out of her way to call many places to help me find a wheelchair for my Mom to use during the Papal Audience at the Vatican. In the end, she was able to borrow one from her friend. Now that is CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! She also arranged for the airport transfers that cost less than some of the places I've checked. She prepared a variety of breakfast food and also cooked eggs. She kept asking if we want more and want something else for breakfast. We had an early departure on our last day and didn't expect breakfast. We were pleasantly surprised that she did even during the early morning, around 6am. What a wonderful host! The PRATI area where the B&B is located can't be beat. It's a 3-minute walk to the Vatican which to us is the most important sight in Rome. It's close to fabulous restaurants, groceries, bus stops, candy stores, cafe, shopping, gelateria, etc. My Mom celebrated her 80th birthday and Matilde even gave her a wonderful present. It felt like we stayed with a family in Rome rather than in a B&B. I'm well traveled and cleanliness in lodging is on top of my list. Well, this place is on top of my list to recommend to friends and family. In-fact, a friend is already booked to stay here this July. Molto Grazie Matilde! Now that the secret is out, we hope there will be vacancy when we visit you again.

Matilde will spare no effort to make your stay memorable and comfortable. We came to Rome during a rare early June heat wave (mid 90's F). She even changed the AC program for us. AC is a very expensive commodity in Rome due to high energy costs. The Vatican, shopping, coffee, gelato, bus stop...basically everything within a couple blocks. Beautiful gardens.

Our family recently spent 3 nights at For My Friends B&B. We occupied 2 bedrooms, each of which was spacious and very well-appointed. Accommodations were gracious, clean, and beautifully decorated. The excellent innkeeper Matilde Pavone gave us invaluable sightseeing advice and provided very filling breakfasts every morning. The inn has an excellent location within walking distance of the Vatican and charming restaurants. A 5-star+++ experience!!!

I have read some of the other reviews for My Friends B&B and we all share the same high praise for Matilide, the wonderful owner who made our stay in Rome extra special. Yes the location is great, yes the room and bath were clean and spacious and oh the great breakfast at the start of the day. But it was the helpful recommendations of Matilide for eating in the neighborhood and breakfast conversation about Rome and Italy. If you are planning a trip to Rome put For My Friends B&B at the very top of your list. Ann and Bob from Minneapolis, MN. 5/14

Great host, great location, great breakfast, great rooms, great bathrooms, great price. Four adult woman shared 2 bedrooms for 2 nights, then we had to share one room for 2 nights due to a previously booked reservation. It was nice to have the whole place to ourselves, but the large room certainly accommodated all our luggage and needs. The beds are very comfortable. Everything is CLEAN! Matilde is a wonderful host and person. Thanks for everything. We truly enjoyed this place and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: If you have the money and the rooms are available, I would book both rooms for added privacy if more...
