“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

We came to Rome on our Honeymoon, and had never been before. I made the arrangements for this hotel online (via email), 2 months before I arrived. I was a little nervous about that, but Angela (our hostess) was awesome, and greeted me by name when we arrived! we got there early, and the people leaving our room were just checking out. We needed to wait for it to be cleaned before we could check in, but Angela let us stow our bags there, gave us a priceless detailed map (that was better than the one from my guide book, by far!), and showed us the lay of the land (and several restaurant recommendations) so we could go have lunch while she cleaned the room. The location is spectacular! We walked from Piazza Navona to the Pantheon (which was literally around the corner). The room was spacious, clean, and had several outlets. The wifi had a strong signal, and the simple breakfast Angela prepared was great. I cannot say enough good things about the location. We walked everywhere: spanish steps, trevi fountain, pantheon, the capitoline, the colosseum, all from the hotel.

The ONE* draw back was the noise outside (especially in the evening). I think it's something that goes with the great location though, I mean, because the hotel is near everything, people are walking by and because restaurants are close you can hear diners. The rooms are not on the first floor and that helped a bit with the noise, but I noticed it a bit at night. During the day, though, it was fun to open the window and watch people pass :)

All together, the hotel was one of the best, and Angela's recommendations are spot on which makes for a fabulous introduction to Rome. It was worth every penny in my book!

Room Tip: There's no elevator (as far as I could tell) but their weren't many stairs, and the stairwel...

Baldassini B&B is located in one of the best locations for touring Rome by foot. We were within walking distance to everywhere we wanted to go and there are many good restaurants right outside the doors and more around the corner.

The room and bathroom were clean and more spacious than I had expected. They aren't large by any means, but I was prepared for very tiny rooms. Rome is expensive and if you compare Baldassini B&B to what you would get for your money in an average city in America you may be disappointed, but that's not really fair. You are paying for the location too. If you want somewhere nicer for your money, you'll have to stay farther away from all the best attractions in Rome and be prepared to spend money and time in taxis and on the metro. We felt very safe and there was always someone around if we needed help.

We had no complaints. The rooms were attractive and comfortable, the staff was helpful and anxious to please, there was minimal street noise at night (and it is a busy area), and the breakfast was much larger than expected.

I stayed in Baldassini B&B for 3 nights in September 2013. On arrival from a long flight we were greeted by the assistant Ruby who was our only contact for the stay. We never met the owner. Ruby was friendly, helpful and cheery.

We stayed in the Yellow Room. the room is very very small. The bathroom is outside the room but private only for you. I knew the room is going to be small so not complaining there. The location is fantastic, right between Piazza Navona and Pantheon both of them less than 5 mins walk. In fact we walked everywhere. Right from Colloseum to Spanish Steps.

The room was clean and bed was made up everyday. Break fast was simple, cereals, bread, cheese and milk. We are vegetarians. For the day we were leaving, since we were leaving early, Ruby left some food for us on the table and in the fridge.

Wifi didnt work...as in it worked in the corridor but not in the room...

For the money you pay, you expect slightly better ...but this is Rome....no complaints...good enough place for somebody who comes to experience the city ..not in the room.

Room Tip: Maybe the other 2 rooms are slightly bigger...so check the budget and the availability.

Our room had basic furnishings but the room was very clean and our host a delight and very helpful. Great in-room breakfast and right on schedule!
Location is fantastic, best way to get around is by bus or walking.

This place is perfect because it is super close to everything, the vatican really being the only exception at under 30 min walk from. Taxis are cheap, 9€ to vatican.

I expected it to be louder at night, it was a nice surprise that it was not as noisy and chaotic as i expected for central Rome! I am a light sleeper. I slept with earplugs and was ok. Only heard 3-4 trucks in the AM (8am) go by. Did not hear people on the street at all.

There is a restraunt just steps outside the door and under BB which serves wine by the bottle, drink then pay for what you drink! Genius! 2,50€ for a glass, 5€ half bottle, 9€ whole bottle.

The service is great! Our maid Ruby is a sweetheart. Francesco the owner ensures you have everything you need and that you are happy. When we mentioned the shower drain was blocked (hair) it was fixed within the hour, too bad no one mentioned it to him before, he did not know.

The AC works, and quickly. Within 5 min of entering our room it was cool. It was so silent i didn't know it was on! There is a remote so can adjust temp when you sleep from bed.

I stayed with my sis and a gf for 8 nights. The room wasLARGE by roman standards as it used to be an apartment that is renovated into a hotel. It is NOT a B&B in the way that we use the word if you are from USA or Canada. You are not IN someones house, we LIKED this aspect very much.
Owners sister lives across the hall in an apartment. There are 3 rooms, we where in largest, Red room, faced street. There is great photos on his website of rooms. Also a blue and yellow room.
It is called B&B because you ARE given breakfast, bacon, eggs, OJ, bread, cornflakes, yogurt, fruit, ask for what you want and he gets it. cappuccino is very good! He got me a juice i requested.

Very accommodating. You will be HAPPY here because he ENSURES it is so.

June 21 & 22, 2013 - Not only was this a superb location (very easy walk to Piazza Navonna and Pantheon neighborhood) the gracious hospitality will keep us coming back. There was a little confusion upon arrival as our host had to be called away, but after contacting him via the kind pizzeria managers cell phone next door, all was well. Wonderful breakfast brought directly to your room.. Clean and very comfy!! Ask for the bigger room if you need more space and will be staying longer than a few nights...I would recommend this hotel to anyone!! Francesco also recommended several excellent restaurants nearby that were really good! Al fresco dining in any direction of this wonderful B&B! Thank you for a wonderful stay!!!

Room Tip: When searching for a B&B or excursion in the US or abroad, always check reviewers of your fellow...

Stayed here for three nights, and the location was just dynamite, really the best place I have ever stayed at in Rome. Room is expensive for how big it is, but it is Rome and you are in the center of the action, ten minutes walk to the Vatican, around the corner from Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, and the Trevi Fountain. Ruby the woman who took care of us was just fantastic, breakfast was delicious and big, so that was nice to get you started roaming around Rome. All of the recommendations for food were spot on, we hit almost all of them and they were all within walking distance. Best gelato in Rome is within walking distance also, which really is the most important thing.

***Note if you are coming here, pay the money for the Roma Pass, look it up. First two museums/attractions you get to hop the line- so do this for the Colosseum for sure it is worth the money, and then all your public transportation is included. You can buy these almost anywhere you see the sign, like a street paper vendor.
