My husband and I stayed at the Casa Banzo for three nights while in Rome. This is the place to stay if you want a real experience... it's a cute little hotel/bed and breakfast in the center of Trastevere. It can be a bit difficult to find if you don't know your way around the area, but it is VERY close to Campo di Fiori and all the main attractions of central Rome and public transportation (all are in Largo d'Argentina, just a few "blocks" away). This hotel doesn't have an elevator so be prepared to carry your bags up the flights of stairs, and there is a heavy iron gate that you have to open to access some of the rooms... so if you are in need of assistance or convenience this is not the place to stay. We didn't have a chance to eat breakfast, but we heard it was good. The room was pretty clean. It lacks the amenities of the bigger hotels, but for the experience of staying in such a lovely building it is a fair trade.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A special place in Rome Nestling in a small square in the heart of Reinassance Rome on the remains of the ancient city, the 16th century palace was originally built for the noble family Alibrandi. The 18th century additions and subsequent renovation over the centuries have but added to the splendour. For four generations the building has belonged to the family now offering their unusually attractive bed & breakfast rooms and selfcatering apartments for discerning visitors to Rome. Their constant concern is maintaining their same traditionally high standards and ensuring the wellbeing of their guests and visitors of Rome. Great attention is paid to detail: antique furnishings and quality decor alongside modern amenities as well as the friendly but discreet sevice, make this private dwelling a very special selfcatering apartment in Rome. Casa Banzo hospitality begins in the stunning reception hall, with its stained glass and vaulted frescoed ceiling, continues in the comfort of the selfcatering apartments or bed & breakfast rooms. ... more less
