Bed and Breakfast Giovy
Ranked #2,139 of 3,711 Rome B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 24, 2013

This was a great B&B. We stayed only for one night as we had an early train to Venice, but the hotel staff was very friendly and accomodating and asked us to pick up breakfast (delicious cakes and an assortment of croissants, fruits, etc) as we were leaving before breakfast time.

It was located within walking distance from Roma Termini (about 7 mins walking) and was easy to locate. It is also known as Maryellen & Giovy, so don't be confused!

We came to this B&B on the recommendation from a friend. She was right! Loredana and her staff are warm and helpful. Because we had to leave for the train station at 0500, Loredana got up early to make sure we had caffe and some breakfast before we left. This is a no-frills, perfectly comfortable and quiet place near the Termini, but not TOO near. The rooms open into a hallway to an inner courtyard. We easily walked to almost all the historical areas and some great restaurants!

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet because they open into an inner courtyard.

I've stayed at various hotels on via G. Amendola, via Filippo Turati and via Principe Amadeo over the last ten or eleven years, some pretty good, some not so good. This hotel, known variously as B&B Giovy and Maryellen & Giovy is undoubtedly the jewel in the crown in this area.
On this occasion my party consisted of my brother, sister-in-law and myself and we were allocated two double rooms, one slightly smaller than the other but most definitely a double, both re-furbished to the highest level, each with toilet and showers which, slightly unusually for this part of the world, were of more than adequate dimensions with plumbing that worked efficiently, including copious supplies of hot water at all times of day.
The beds were comfortable and the pillows, sometimes sorely neglected, were of a high quality.
I would have to say that the breakfast arrangements, whereas adequate, were a little skimpy for U.K. guests but this was totally eclipsed by the friendliness and accommodating nature of the owner, Loredana, her family and staff.
I'm cutting my own throat here because to serve my own selfish ends I should be advising everyone to stay away from Maryelen & Giovy because as a fairly frequent visitor to Rome, I'll certainly be back as I stated in Loredana's Comments Book at Reception on the day of our departure after seven very satisfactory nights under her roof.

My husband, grandson, and I stayed at Giovy B & B for five nights. I was edgy because Giovy had recently received negative reviews, but we were well pleased. Our hosts were friendly and helpful, unusually flexible when we needed very early breakfasts for two days. The location, near the train station, was a great plus both for walking and for picking up buses and trains to other parts of Rome and to Tivoli. The European breakfast offered a range of choices. Our teenage grandson especially enjoyed the pastries. Our rooms were basic but clean, there were lots of hangars and a safe, and the beds were comfortable. I'd stay there again.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The rooms were sufficient, although small they had tea and coffee facilities. The hotel was located within 3 minutes walk from the main station.

Breakfast consisted almost solely of cakes, there were some sandwhiches although these were quite dry and did not cater to vegetarians. The cakes were good though.

We stayed here for five nights and found it very clean, comfortable and friendly. The location is great - not far from the station and reasonable walking distance from most of the places we wanted to go to with lots of places to eat very nearby. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Rome.

Loredana and her family were absolutely wonderful. They greeted us after a very long day of travel with smiles (although we had arrived quite late) and took care of us throughout our stay as though we were family.

The location was fabulous - just minutes from Termini which got us everywhere we needed to go and there are several beautiful buildings to explore around the B&B itself. We didn't have a need for a laundry facility while we were there, but there was one just across the way and there were several restaurants in the area; only had a chance to eat at one that Loredana recommended & it was superb!

I found our room to be quite comfortable, clean and quiet and although the bathroom was small, it was adequate and always clean. The breakfast they served was plentiful and they went out of their way to make sure guests had what they needed.

We couldn't have asked for a more lovely stay in Rome and for such a great value! I will definitely stay here again.

Thank you Loredana and family for going out of your way to make our stay in Rome so easy and so lovely!
