This is a great place for people who want to crash for a few nights for little money. Comfy beds and pretty silent neighborhood. We got breakfast and free WiFi for slightly more than a dorm bed in a youth-hostel would have cost us. Great! Vatican City is within walking distance!

In a super location, right next to the Vatican in the trendy Cola di Rienzo area, this B&B is more affordable than most hotels and comes with a cafeteria buffet-style breakfast, which we took advantage of given the numerous sights to explore in Rome. It was our first time trying a place where we shared bathrooms, but it wasn't a problem and the front desk was very helpful in planning our days. I would recommend to anyone wanting to see Rome and save a bit of money.

Room Tip: The room by the front desk can be noisy as visitors come at all hours.

This was a wonderful place for a base in Rome! We booked two triple rooms - on the first and third floor and stayed there for a week. The hotel is close to two metro stops and multiple bus stops, very near to the Vatican and practically 5 minutes north of Castel Sant'Angelo. Location is the number one priority when in Rome and this one was excellent. One could easily reach the whole Vatican area, Piazza Navona, the Spanish steps and Via del Corso by foot. A lot of restaurants and shopping areas nearby as well.

Rooms were not as small as we expected and were absolutely spotless - something I hadn't experienced in my previous trip to Rome. Shampoo, soap and shower gel were supplied daily, towels and sheets were also changed on a regular basis, while three bottles of mineral water were complimentary every day as well. Breakfast was delicious and offered a lot of choices. A free Internet point was available all the time and the staff was very helpful with everything we asked from them - booking Galleria Borghese reservations, printing our flight vouchers and booking taxi at 4 a.m. when we were leaving.

The rooms were very well air-conditioned and what felt like a blessing was that they were absolutely sound proof to noises outside the hotel (although one could hear noises from the inside of the building occasionally).

All in one, we believe got very lucky with our choice of hotel and would definitely stay there again - great location, great service and great price. We hope prices don't change much in the future, as this hotel is really a hidden gem.

Nice and cheerful with brightly painted walls, linens, art work and spacious bathrooms. The space can seem small for us North Americans, but this is Italy. :) Although many of the rooms do appear with pictures I was informed tht they are only a sample and not guaranteed when booking. There was an error in communication in booking which was politely handled by the young lady on nights at the time. She was honest with her not having the authority to handle the situation, but promised to discuss with the manger, which she had done by next morning. All was taken care of. The breakfast was the most abundant that I have come across thus far in the trip, with meats, cheese, breads, pastries, cereal, yogurt, fruit, and beverages. You are all set for your day of walking the sites of Roma.

Also we would like to explain that the pictures of the rooms that are currently in the website are existing rooms, but since it's not possible to insert all our room pictures in the website for graphical and tecnical reasons sometimes it happens that once you arrive at the hotel another room could be assigned . This is also because all of our rooms are aesthetically different.
We remain at your service anytime you would like to return to Rome.

Best wishes,

Very close to Vatican City and the metro which took you to central sights. The area around the hotel was nice, wealthy and clean. The hotel building has no signs outside, the only indication is a small plaque on the wall which said the name of the hotel. The room was very nice, it had an ensuite, mini fridge, wardrobe and tv. Good size and clean. There was a communal lounge on our floor with a small outside terrace where you could sit which was nice. There was one free computer on our floor which gets turned off at 11pm although the man from reception allowed us to stay on longer as we were booking our accommodation for our next stop which we needed for the next night so that was very kind of him. Drinks are available to buy at reception at a reasonable price.

the staff wasn't friendly at all...not helpful either. I was stolen the first day of my trip and the recpetionist after seeing me in panic just told me..."why do you act like that...i was stolen 3 times.." after giving me some telephones that i have asked , never asked me again the next days if I am ok..ect...Moreover, in our small balcony they have installed 3 A/C machines and as a reslut the noise interrupted our sleep. I would defenately not choose or propose this hotel in the future.
