We shared a number of stories about "back home," and, of course, felt very welcome at the B & B called the "Sweets," the annex of the Beehive B & B, with full bath and A/C included at 110 Euros/night. Great value. You get just the room, not included breakfast, which is available in a "cafe" in the basement. But, one can get a full menue real cafe just outside the front door. Steve was great at getting us taxi cabs right at our door within two minutes of our asking. The Beehive's location is a 5-10 minute walk from the train station, which is simple even with towing suitcases. Room was clean, airy, and central, obviously. If Rome is on your Italian iterary, you should contact the Beehive for a room in the Sweets, and please say "Hi" to Steve from us, the couple originally from Orange, Connecticut. He will treat you like family too.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. Everything about The Beehive reflects our own personal values and we genuinely want to be helpful and hospitable. We love to share the kind of information that helps you get the most out of your travels. Over the years The Beehive has evolved along with us and our many repeat guests. With our amazing onsite staff and manager, all of our guests receive our dedication and effort to helping you get the best out of your holiday. As always, we want you to know you have a safe haven and friends in Rome. ... more less
