I am a travel writer and made my first trip to Rome to meet my college-age daughter who had been traveling in Turkey. Rome is known to be intimidating and right from the start I read all the great reviews about the Beehive and how Steve and Linda of course speak perfect English and so we chose that as our place to meet and connect. Because they were booked the nights we wanted we never stayed there, but Steve and I became such instant on-line friends that he and his also-nice receptionists let us use the Beehive for much of our logistics. When it was hot and chaotic in Rome the Beehive was by far the nicest sanctuary we found during the week we were there. We met many of the guests and found the most interesting travelers we met in Rome were staying there. Then when our situation suddenly changed in Florence Steve again went out of his way to immediately find us the perfect place in Florence through their cross-pollination service. I spent an hour reading all the glowing reviews in their guestbooks, and together with their 347 excellents here (now 348), they've had the most glowing reviews of anyplace we've found in Rome or elsewhere. All in all there is no place in Rome and no innkeepers I've found who I would recommend more highly.

- The Beehive is a cool, stylish, eco-friendly budget hostel/hotel owned by an American couple, Linda & Steve, who came to Rome to follow a dream. In 1999 we packed up our apartment in Los Angeles and, along with our 2 cats moved to Rome and opened The Beehive, a unique cross between a budget hotel and an upscale hostel - a place where you can feel at home.
