“The best B&B ever!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

I traveled alone from August 8th to 15th, 2013 in Rome and this little jewel in the heart of Rome was one of the highlights of my trip. The most charming, cozy, beautiful, perfectly situated little refuge you can hope to get in Rome. Walking distance to the major treasures of this gorgeous city, it is by far one of the safest and cleanest neighborhoods. If you are lucky to get a room there, don't think twice. Rifugio only has 5 rooms so hurry up and book!! Domenico who runs the place is very accommodating, super friendly, polite and funny. Thank you, Domenico for the fruit, the water, the sparkling wine and most importantly your help and friendship! I will be back
Baci!!

Room Tip: Rooms 2 & 4 are slightly larger than the rest.

Everything was perfect. Host was very kind and helpful, keeping our luggages before check in and after check out. The room was very comfortable with a great artistic vibe (many sculptures and beautiful paintings). Close to all the main attractions. Don't miss it and we will for sure come back.

Domenico has done a great job converting this old, Roman era space into a charming place to hide away from the rough and tumble of central Rome. The Rifugio is very appealing with ancient brickwork pillar and walls, chic contemporary art works, good lighting and excellent linens and bed. The well appointed shower might be a tight if you tend towards supersize, but its efficient, and doesn't waste space. Our room was very spacious under a domed ceiling, well air conditioned and featured elegant neoclassical furniture.

Domenico is a great host and provides good advice about the neighbourhood, including a terrific restaurant, Osteria Gusto nearby. Breakfast in a nearby bar on Via Ripetta is great too. Rifugio is terrifically located, minutes away from Piazza del Popolo Piazza Di Spagna, and the shopping streets Corso, Babuino and Condotti, and two powerful Caravaggios at Santa Maria de Monte Santo, at the far side of Piazza del Popolo. The Villas Borghese and Giulia are a short distance away too. Happy to stay again and hope it is very soon. Grazie Mille, Domenico!

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Rifugio Degli Artisti for 2 nights from Saturday 13th July to Monday 15th July and had a lovely little stay. Dominico the young guy that owned/ran it worked 24/7 and was extremely hospitable! There was a lovely welcoming bottle of sparkling wine ready for us and he was always on hand with any questions, he even made a list of all the types of ways we could get to the airport which was very helpful of him. The breakfast at a bar round the corner was good, it ran until quite late which is handy because as the b&b is underground there is no natural light to wake you! We had to set alarms just incase we slept too much! All in all we had a lovely stay and the location was the cherry on top - literally in the heart of it all and walkable to everything...(if you like walking...) Thank you Dominco :-)

a nice place in the heart of Rome, the hospitality and the room was perfect, i suggest that guest house for busyness and holidays, the rooms are tipical, with brick wall, the restoration of this place is perfect and is possible to see the work of a great italian architect that did it with love and respect for the ancient building stile. the breakfast is italian (cornetto and cappuccino), and it's served in a very nice cafe on the next street, wery good!

I stayed at Rifugio degli Artisti with my boyfriend for three nights. We were amazed at it's proximity to all the main attractions-Trevi fountain, spainsh steps and all of the shops. It is located a few minutes from Flaminio station so is very easy to access and to travel around the city if you prefer not to walk. It is in a busy area full of tourist action- we were spoilt for choice with restaurants and bars. However, once in the room we felt miles away. The room was spacious and comfortable. Staff very friendly and accommodating- they even provided wine in the room for our first evening and because we were the first guests we were also given free breakfast. I would go back there in a flash and recommend it to all.

Excellent location in the City Centre, close to all main interest points of the old town. Newly renovated and modern rooms with art decoration in a historical building. Very cosy and exceptional quiet rooms. Pleasant and comfortable temperature in summer. Young and friendly helpful owner. Guests receive breakfast vouchers for "Bar 99", situated around the corner, offering free choice from a large variety. What are you waiting for ? I'll go back there for sure.....
