Angelo was very welcoming when I arrived at Il Boom - il bed 'n breakfast. He provided a map of Roma and pointed out places of interest to visit. The location was perfect in the Trastevere area, and I easily walked to all the areas of interest. Il Boom had a wonderful ambience and the room was spacious. The outdoor terrace was bliss for breakfast or spending time relaxing. I enjoyed waking up to the lovely cats each morning. There was also free internet access available, which is always a plus when travelling. I would definately return to Il Boom when I am next in Roma.

This was even nicer than I thought it would be from the reviews.

Why did I love this? The fabulous terrace; the amazing breakfast available until midday; the warm but not intrusive welcome from Angelo; his speed at getting back to me over the booking; the views over via Dandolo with its magnificent houses; the greenery; the comfy bed; the quirky decoration; the cats... I would definitely go back.

By the way, the steps one reviewer refers to aren't that bad - I barely noticed them - and the number mentioned is up and down (I counted) so you can halve it really. Also the hill is not that steep, it's a gentle if persistent rise which not once had me out of breath. The toilet in the Loren room is high and narrow - it's true - but the bathroom is so beautiful who cares? It's perfectly usable. I was in Loren and sure there was some traffic noise so if you come from the remote countryside you may notice it - so bring earplugs, sleep with the windows shut (or perhaps don't go on holiday to a capital city?)

Your review is simply GREAT!!!
Many many thanks! For two wonderful reasons:
- I'm really happy about how and how much you enjoyed our place. It's not "perfect", but it's so nice to hear it :)
- You said the best way possible for some "weaknesses" that some of our guests have legitimately indicated... the steps, up the hill, the bathroom Vitti (The Loren room is quieter, but with views over the gardens at the back).
And yes, the stairs are not so many, our hill is not so steep and there are very good buses at 50 meters, the toilet in bathroom Vitti has been designed by the famous French architect Philippe Starck, and is absolutely and totally usable :), and then we are in Rome, and earplugs can easily help in avoiding some traffic noise in room Vitti.
The important thing is to know everything before, as in our website we try to explain, and then enjoy Rome and everything that our apartment can offer, from the terraces, the view of the city, the possibility of relaxing for breakfast, being immersed in a happy and elegant and old roman home (with cats and turtles in the terrace), in a family environment that at the same time trying to be professional and humanly warm.
So thanks indeed again for showing all this in such a nice way! And really hope to see you again in Rome.

We had never been to Rome before so it was really useful to be greeted by Angelo who showed us the bus routes/ places to go etc. This B and B was just as I expected it to be from others' reviews- clean, stylish and with a wonderful roof terrace for our breakfast and coffee. It was surprising how it is so quiet - we didn't see other guests even though there were some booked in and it felt like having the place to ourselves, even in June half term. I really liked the fact that all the kitchen implements are stylish and nice to handle and everything impecably clean. The bed in Vitti is really comfortable, on the hard side, which I like, though I would recommend one of the back-facing rooms if possible as the road at the front is busy, though not a problem with the shutters closed at night (and the quiet A/C on ), and it is a huge advantage to have the bus stop right outside when coming back from the main part of Rome.
The area of Trastevere is fantastic- atmospheric, ancient and alive with amazing value restaurants and cafes, exactly how you imagine Rome to be. Turn left out of the B and B and then right down some very steep steps, which will wind you into the heart of Trastevere quicker and more interestingly than taking the main road to the right. You basically can't go wrong booking into Il Boom in Trastevere. Some people have mentioned the hill climb and the steps up in the building but unless you are elderly this would not be an issue, and worth it to have the rooftop terrace, which as you can see from the pictures is really big.

We visited Rome during what we consider to be the best time of year to stay there, early to mid may (08-05 / 16-05). Lovely weather and a green, lively, bristling city which isn't too hot, too humid, or too full of people or even overcrowded yet . Rome is really charming in may, believe us!

This B&B we stayed in -Il Boom - is absolutely one of the best we ever stayed in (and we stayed in B&B's all over the world quite a lot over the years). The building was charming and located in the beautiful neighbourhood of Trastevere, just across the river Tiber but in walking distance of parks, museums, restaurants and places of interest. Also, the bus stops to and from the city centre and the monuments were almost at our doorstep. Getting around was no big hassle. On foot if possible and by bus or metro if necessary (if you want to visit Ostia, for example).

Our room was very charming, quite spacious and had a clean and comfortable bathroom. Furthermore, the were clean towels every single day (on our request) and the bed linen was changed 3 times during our 9-day stay! To top if all of, there was our host Angelo, who was very gracious and hospitable.

Still, there are two points of interest we would like to mention:

1. B&B Il Boom lies at the Via Dandolo. Now this is a nice street with trees along it in a nice neighbourhood with all kinds of mansions and villa's. Yes, Trastevere and Gianicolo might be called a bit posh. However, this Via Dandolo charming as it may be is also a busy street. Traffic can be noisy, even at night. If you're a light sleeper, go for a room on the back of the building, away from the street.

2. Breakfast is Italian style, so light and sweet. Do not expect an English or full continental breakfast, but rather do as the Romans do: go for a small, light breakfast at the B&B then head to town and grab something to eat or drink on the go.

But for the rest, B&B Il Boom truly is a gem. We will definitely come back some day!

Ciao Angelo,

Erik & Honore
