“Our perfect stay in Rome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

B&B Smart... It is a great place to stay in Rome. The owner Isa is extremely sweet, polite, obliging and speaks good English. We were provided perfect directions to the B&B and we had no problem arriving from Roma Termini which is at a 5 mins walking distance, The B&B is on the 5th floor and there is an elevator to go to the top. Isa was right outside the elevator and gave us a warm welcome. She provided us the map and explained all the tourist places to visit. We were provided free water bottles for our entire stay. Much needed cold water. The breakfast was healthy and filling consisting of fresh fruits, fruit juice, croissant, yogurt and boiled egg. It was my husband's birthday and she had arranged for a small surprise cake. It was very sweet of her. Isa was available all the time and we had absolutely no problem during check-in and check-out.
I recommend B&B Smart to everybody who is planning their trip to Rome. Close to Termini, very clean and large rooms, free breakfast, good wifi, best price and not to forget a very warm and friendly host Isa.

B&B Smart has to be one of the best lodging bargains in Rome! It's not grand, but everything is kept perfectly clean and the breakfast is more than enough. We found the location to be very convenient... close to the train station, within walking distance of many sights, and near good restaurants. The traditonal Italian restaurant just outside the B&B building door was very good! Innkeeper Isabella was WONDERFUL! She saw to our every need.

Room Tip: B&B Smart is part of Isabella's family's home in a multiple-story apartment/condo buildi...

\We had a little trouble finding the place, but that may have been because we were unfamiliar with the city. We were welcomed by Isa right away, and she took time to explain the city to us and helped us plan a way to explore all of Rome in 2 days. Safe, clean, and great service with a nice little breakfast included. Much better than if we were to stay in a random hostel. Highly reccomended!

Isa was amazing, the room was amazing, and you can't beat the location with it being 2 streets away from the terminal. Isa provided us with 1.5 liter waters everyday for free, she welcomed us with fresh watermelon, made breakfast specific for us whenever we wanted it and brought it to our room! It was such a great experience! AC unit was amazing as well! You will love it here!

Room Tip: Our room had a private bathroom inside and an AC unit. These two things help a lot!

I arrived quite late in Rome and found the hotel easily thanks to Isa's very clear instructions. She came down to greet me, which was nice. The room was very spacious and clean and there were two places just downstairs where I grabbed a quick bite to eat.
Breakfast was great and then it was just a quick walk round the corner to get my train to Naples.
Thanks for a great start to my Italian holiday.

We stayed at B&B Smart for 2 nights in early July. The room was lovely and colorful - neat as a pin! It was great having a communal refrigerator and wifi in the room. Isa gave us much-needed water upon arrival and surprised us with watermelon once we were settled. She was able to highlight all of Rome's highlights on a map at super-sonic, yet very informative speed! I was impressed. The map was very handy as we became lost in Rome. Rome was hot but our room was air conditioned. I was always amazed as the motorcycles zoomed by us and the noise of Rome just disappeared on the 5th floor of B&B Smart. Breakfast was sufficient to get us started for the day. The fresh fruit was especially nice. High marks are rightly deserved.

We spent three nights in Rome and we loved the location and the set-up. It is so close to Termini
that it barely takes 5 minutes to get there. Isabella arranged pick-up from the airport and was very
helpful getting us oriented when we arrived. She spent time to highlight the attractions around and
to explain how we can get to the ones that were farther away. For breakfast she brought in a tray
with fruits, yogurt, juice, tea or coffee, a boiled egg and pastry. We were happy with our stay and
we will check with them if we stop again in Rome.
