Welcome House
Ranked #833 of 3,734 Rome B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 27, 2013

Upon arriving at 7pm, later than expected, we were greeted by a an extremely helpful member of staff who showed us to our room. The room itself was bigger than we thought it would be and had a beautiful feel to it with lovely charm. When waking the following morning, fresh bread was hung upon our door amongst other items laid out for breakfast. And with all the walking we were about to experience, we were extremely grateful for that! All inclusive of the price too. The hotel is extremely central to EVERYTHING and if you choose, public transport is only a stones throw away, but hold onto your wallets and bags, as i was pick pocketed on the bus, but raised such a commotion, the thief dropped my wallet and i retrieved it before anything was taken, LUCKY! Anyway we chose walking as our major form of transport as the longest we had to walk to get anywhere was only 30mins. The colosseum was only a 15 minute walk away and the Trevi fountain 10 mins max, so we were surprised with that. Upon leaving in the morning, a wonderful member of staff showed us the best routes to take and suggested some great eating to do along the way. The advice was excellent and well received! So if your looking for a great pace to stay, fantastic staff, clean rooms and looking for a cheaper alternative, then The Welcome House is the place to stay! When we go back, that is where we will be staying! Thank you for makinouror stay everything thing we were hoping for and more!

The B&B shows a very good "price for value" relation. Within walking distance to Termini and to most of the sites to visit. Very helpfull receptionist providing Good recommendations.

Small and nice restaurant just around the corner. Exzellent fish and good and cheep house wine.

Room Tip: Try to get a room to the backyard, this gives quiet nights ;-)

For travelers on a tight budget, the balance of quality, location, and price is probably better at Welcome House than anywhere else in Rome. Nice clean rooms with 10+ foot ceiling. Friendly receptionist gave us a tour map and showed us the how to get around the city. On the major street of Via Nazionale, within walking distance of the major sites, including the Colosseum. Not very well sound-proofed, so light sleepers may be bothered by outside traffic.

Very nice clean B&B, spacious room and bathroom, situated in a very central area. It can be reached on foot from the Termini train station, and you can walk to most of the important monument and archaelogical sites. The fashion shops are just downstairs. Just a little problem: the traffic noise, even if on the 4th floor the noise was quite disturbing.

Welcome house is excellent. Convenient for Bus and Metro routes and not far from termini station, staff speak good english and very helpfull with tips and information to get best out of your visit. comfortable rooms. One tip to help you find it it is 200m from Repubblica end of via nazionale and in the same entrance as the miami hotel which has a much more obvious sign.

For paying close to 200 per night, I was expecting more from this B&B. They aren't really a true B&B in the traditional sense. For breakfast someone leaves a basket of hard bread hanging on your door handle. You help yourself to juice, coffee, and cereal that's spread out on a counter in the lobby area outside of your room. That's breakfast. The rooms all face the main street and the windows don't block out noise so we had several sleepless nights. It is quite a long distance to walk to Termini station, and considering that there are plenty of cheaper, more economical alternatives to Welcome House closer to the station, I would consider staying elsewhere.
