“A great find”
Reviewed December 28, 2008

What more could you want for a short break than what CK can offer you? The room was nicely decorated and contained everything you need. a little breakfast table, safe, plenty of cupboard space, chair and a great bed. The bathroom was en suite, clean and the water boiling hot and everything was very clean.
Breakfast was set in your room but you could wander out to the small kitchen area and get yourself more coffee, tea or food from the fridge which you could also use for your own things.
Room was tidied every day and although the owners aren't on site all the time there always seemed to be someone around if you needed anything.
They provided maps and help to get us around the city and its location to the the terminii and some good places to eat made it a great place to stay. Would definitely stay here again.

The staff at CK Bed & Breakfast were very welcoming and incredibly comfortable. I had hoped for great things from this B&B and I was not disappointed. The room was fantastic, with the all-important big, cosy bed, and the breakfasts set me up for the rest of the day.

It's a little bit of a walk to the Colloseum, and other famous sights, but it's not too far, and the B&B is very convenient for the supermarket and some good restaurants. The B&B is far enough away from the Termini to not be in the dodgy part of town, but close enough for an easy walk.

Not only would I recommend this B&B but I already am -- and I hope to return in the not too distant future.

The Hotel was within easy walking distance from Stazione Termini. ( On a previous trip to Rome I took a taxi from the station and got completely done so walking is good!!) the friendly owner kindly met us outside the hotel on arrival quite late on a Sat night which was really appreciated. The room (we stayed in the moroccon room) was superb and although looked out onto a fairly busy road, was very quiet with effective double glazing. We were within easy walking distance to the Colosseum. The breakfast was basic but pleasant and self service with no time restrictions which was really relaxed and enjoyable. I would highly recommend CK B&B to anyone visiting Rome. I would definately stay again.

My partner & I stayed at the CK for 4 nights in Sept. for a reasonably priced break. Hmmm.....
For starters the reception is unstaffed so all the guests have to fend for themselves. The tiny kitchen all guests must use for tea & coffee well ...some guests were given coffee pods for the coffee machine - others had to wait an age for the kettle to be boiled on a small hob!!
Our towels weren't changed in 5 days and of course there are no staff to ask for help!
The area the B&b is in is a little down at heel. We didn't feel threatened at all but other guests ventured only as far as the restaurant next door after dark!
The room we had was small and clean but it was mostly very unpractical. No room to move in the bathroom and no dresser in the bedroom. On our last day the cleaner had been smoking in our room too! So we came back to the stence of cigerettes and fag ash on our windowsill.
You can do better for 100 euros a night.

I've chosen this –admittedly charmingly decorated - B&B in Rome near the Termini, primarily because of the great reviews it received on this and other websites.
And was sorely disappointed.
Rooms (which are tiny) really are furnished with a lot of taste and charm, and the Metro is really near, but that sums up the advantages.
The service was appalling.
First, we could not get two bead sheets and blankets, even though immediately upon arrival we pointed out that we're no love birds and would prefer two covers if possible. OK, that in itself is just a bit annoying, not the end of the world.
But than, on the third evening of our 5 nights' stay, we had a shock: the dirty towels which we left on the bathroom floor had been picked up and placed back on the holders, folded so that impurities were carefully covered! After stepping out of the shower, imagine the delight of facing your roommate's lipstick stains you remember from the day before on what you were just about to wipe your face with. YUCK! I've traveled this world around, and this is unheard of in Third World places in Asia, Africa, and my native Balkans, even in establishments with a lot less than 3 ***, which CK boasts.
Add that to a relatively humble breakfast in a positively claustrophobic kitchen, and the place being in the area which (like all railway-station neighborhoods in the world) is not exactly classy, and you'll have to conclude that for 100 EUR a night, you can do better in Rome.
Both location- and service- wise.

My partner and I stayed at CK Bed & Breakfast in Rome for 5 nights in March, and it was excellent.

I was looking for somewhere near the Hotel Napoleon because we had friends getting married and that's where they were staying - but they were fully booked by the time I got around to booking.

I found CK B&B listed on LateRooms and it already had excellent reviews even though it had only been open since December 2006.

It's a bit like staying in an apartment - there is no front desk - just 5 rooms and a small kitchen area with tables for breakfast. I think two of the five rooms have breakfast tables in the room. Each room is individually decorated and they're all fantastic. We paid an average of 80Euro/night for five days over a weekend.

Breakfast is coffee/tea, toast, yoghurt and cereal.

Location is very handy - 3 minutes walk to the Vittorio Emmanuele metro station. 20 minute walk to the Colosseum. The owners, Federica and her husband are lovely.

I definitely recommend it and would absolutely stay there again.
