Al Colonnato di San Pietro Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #10 of 3,709 Rome B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 2, 2012

I'll try and keep this concise. We stayed in the Al Colonnato di San Pietro - SUN space apartment.

1. All of the other reviews are correct in saying that Rosa is such a lovely woman who genuinely cares about her guests and her accommodation. Nothing is too much trouble for her. She was waiting for us when we arrived, helped us plan our stay, booked us in to tiny Italian restaurants we would never have known about if it wasn't for her, and even gave us a mobile to use in case we needed advice.

2. The apartment was spotless when we arrived, and is perfect for a short trip to the city. There are basic cooking facilities and the ensuite is to a very high standard. Another reviewer thought the bed was slightly firm - but we found it extremely comfortable. The fridge was fully stocked with all you need for breakfast and tea/coffee and there was ample bread, cereal, jams, biscuits etc. There is a small balcony, and very nice coffee shops and tavernas less than a 1 minute walk from the apartment.

3. The location is perfect. You are less than a 5 minute walk to St Peters, you will not find better than this.

4. The tariff is exceptionally reasonable for the service you receive, the quality of the apartment and location. The only problem we now have is that Rosa has set the bar very high and it will be hard to find comparable B&B's in other cities!

We will be recommending Al Colonnato di San Pietro to any friends or family planning to visit Rome.

Rosa thank you so much :-) Matt & Nora

We have just returned from a three night stay in The Moon space apartment,and wow what a little gem.Rosa Maria greeted us with a fantastic smile and welcome. The apartment is clean, bright and spacious and very well equipped. There a great supply of bread,jam, butter, milk, juice, tea, coffee, yoghurt, biscuits and cereal for breakfast and a very very large bowl of fresh fruit. There is a good supply of towels and toiletries,and air-conditioning which was great as it was 28 degrees.Rosa Maria supplied a map and all the information we required for our trip including transport restaurants and places of interest, she even supplied us with a mobile phone so we could contact her in case we had any questions, great if your phone doesn't work in Italy.
We would recommend this apartment to anyone going to Rome, especially if you want to be in easy walking distance of The Vatican.
Thanks again Rosa Maria for a great stay.

This being our second visit to Rome and to the "Moon Apartment" and when Rosa Maria met us it was like being greeted by an old friend she made us feel so welcome. The apartment is spacious, clean and in a fantastic location. Rosa took the time to go through all places of interest on the map, fantastic churches to visit which are not on the normal tourist list which were amazing. She provided us with a mobile phone in case of any problems. She provided us with lots of goodies for breakfast and a well stocked fridge. We cannot thank Rosa enough for her hospitality and helping us to make our 35th wedding anniversary a memorable one.. We have recommended this B&B and the apartments to a number friends and relatives. If our coin in the Trevii Fountain comes true we will be back......thank you Rosa Maria

My husband and I were referred to this B&B by friends and our experience was every bit as wonderful as we expected. We spent 6 nights here in Sept 2012. Rosa Maria is the perfect hostess. She provided maps, bus information and restaurant recommendations . We had booked some early morning tours and she arranged for earlier breakfast. We also enjoyed Meldie {sp}
who is Rosa Maria's assistant. The property is close to the Vatican and in a charming area.

Let me start by saying that I feel terribly guilty about writing such a late review. We stayed at this wonderful property for 2 nights in late Mach 2012. I never write reviews but I think it is my obligation as we all had a fantastic experience.

Our group (total of 6 people) consisted of 2 couples in our 40's, both with teen daughters. We chose this place based on previous guest revies on Trip Advisor. Rosa Maria is awesome!!! She was always very prompt in answering my questions and emails prior to our trip. I felt like I knew her well prior to our arrival! She offered for us to have a driver pick us up at the airport, which I thought was a great idea and reasonably priced. The driver spoke limited English but still tried to make conversation. He was also very courteous and professional. Since there were 3 of us in each family, Rosa Maria offered us the Moon Space and the Sun Space apartments. These were located in a residential building, close to her other bed & breakfast property. The area felt safe and it was within a short walk to Vatican City. Each apartment had a double/queen bed and a single bed for each teen. Everything was super clean. The mattress was a little too firm for my preference, but this seems to be somewhat common in Italy. They each also had a cupboard/ kitchennete set-up with a sink, cooktop, as well as plates, cups, silverware, etc. We were also supplied with snacks, fresh fruits, yogurts, cereal, milk, juice and cofee. There were also several restaurants within walk-in distance. My husband and daughter, who are picky eaters, were expecting some croissants or pastries to be available for breakfast. I told Rosa Maria and the next day she showed up with the best pastries for them. This is not usually included with the apartments so we were extremely impressed with this gesture! This IS service and hospitality. Rosa Maria also provided us with tips, advise, a map and restaurant suggestions. She also told us we could call her anytime if we had any questions or issues. Even though we only stayed for 2 nights and we had visited Rome before, we cannot stop talking about our stay and Rosa Maria's hospitality. I should be getting jealous because my husband loves this lady! I am not sure if our friends wrote a review but they also said the loved the apartment and were equally impressed with the service and hospitality we were given.

We also agree: we can't wait to be back at your place Rosa Maria! Our stay in Rome was even more memorable than the first time because of the apartment and Rosa Maria. Thanks for making us feel welcome and taking such good care of us!!!

We arrived by bus (1 minute walk) and Rosa Maria was outside waiting to greet us. The hospitality at this B&B is outstanding. The area is safe, quiet, and not overrun by tourists. Our room was exactly what we had hoped for based on the description. The value is unbeatable.
What really makes this place special though is that Rosa Maria makes you feel at home and is available to help whenever needed. Grazie mille Rosa Maria! - Jeffrey (Goffredo) & Brittany

My wife and I just returned from a trip to Rome and stayed at the 'Sun Space' at this B&B. I don't usually bother to write reviews but my experience at this location has changed my mind. The location is great, with a 3min walk to the Vatican. Rosa Maria was a great host and did everything possible to make our stay memorable. Her primary concern seemed to be that our stay in Rome was perfect. She helped with directions, tips, arranging for a car when needed, and even provided us a cell phone in case we got into any trouble while out-and-about in Rome. The apartment had more than enough room and was nice & quiet at night. There were good places to eat within steps of the apartment and the convenience was top notch. I would recommend this location to anyone who is visiting Rome.
