“A lovely place to stay in Rome”
Reviewed July 18, 2011

We booked our reservation at Little Queen and got bumped up to a room at Kame Hall, the other property owned by the delightful brothers Simone and Vittorio. They couldn't have been nicer and the accommodations were welcoming and well kept. Both places are in the Ghetto area, which is near to all the central attractions but not in the heart of tourist-ville. With the lovely Piazza dei Mattei fountain steps away.

Vittorio and Simone were most welcoming and very helpful. No uneccesary frills, quiet, clean, en suite, comfortable A/C room. In a pedestrian only street, and above all within walking distance of the Tiber and the Trastevere district. It is slap bang in the middle of the old ghetto area with its distinctive feel and numerous really good bars and restuarants. All the main attractions are easily reachable, some on foot and others by the excellent Tram/Bus/Metro system. [Do buy an all access BTI ticket, worth every cent] The No. 40 [limited stop] bus stop is only about 200m from the B&B and connects to the main Rail Terminal and The Vatican. All in all a really good base to see more of Rome than the average visitor.

Rome was our final destination on a 2.5 week trip through Italy. I've been to Rome two other times, the first time the hotel was pretty bad, the second time was on my Honeymoon where we stayed at the Waldorf Astoria (on Hilton Points). After doing a ton of research, this place kept coming up as the place to stay. It's a small three room B&B, which was perfect for us as we had three groups of two, so a room for each. The place looked really nice and clean once we checked in. The location was fantastic. Close to everything we wanted to see. And that's where the compliments end. The owners are two brothers, and apparently one of them lives up stairs. It's a B&B, so no issues with that EXCEPT that he would come in and out of the building (he had to use the common front door) all night long and would SLAM both the front door and the door leading up stairs. When he got upstairs, two of the three nights he had very long, very loud arguments with someone, we heard every word. Night time was not very pleasant.. In the morning, breakfast consisted of dry croissants, some fruit and yogurt. More consistent with breakfast I've had at much cheaper hotels throughout Italy (read that as very cheap hotels). You would think that a place that has 'Breakfast' in the name would actually have a breakfast, and not basically snacks. I've been all over Italy, so I know what breakfast usually consists of, and its not typical American style, but this wasn't even Italian style. It was just cheap food to fill a check in the box. There is no room for more than two people to actually eat, so you must eat in your room. If you are here with strangers, good luck.

There is free Internet, but I couldn't get a clean signal. I went from 0 to 1 bar and it would just time out. Luckily I brought a global MiFi, but I had to use it outside since the building is basically a concrete box. No signal.

When we checked out, we had to go a couple of blocks to the brothers store to pay our bill, and got hit with the lovely fees for not paying cash. Seems typical in Italy. So on top of the noise, the bad food, and the odd people running it, Rome was still a good time. I just wish our accommodations were nicer.

We stayed there 4 nights in May. Simone and Vittorio were very friendly and welcoming. The rooms are very clean with a touch of italian design. They are extremely well located. From there we walked almost everywhere. A great place to stay.

Little Queen is spotlessly clean and is located within walking distance to everything. The breakfast was adequate - cereal,yougurt,fruit,pastries, coffee and juice. Certainly enough to get your day started. Vittorio is friendly and helpful and can be found nearby if you need anything. For the price, you can't beat this place. The wifi was essential when traveling with a teenager and worked well. The bed was very firm and the linens were clean and comfortable.

The B&B is very modern, conveniently located and extremely small. We walked everywhere, except when we went to the MAXXI museum (new modern art museum) and to the train station. I have to share that our room was the smallest we had during a five week trip, even smaller than the room we had on the cruise ship we boarded from Rome (we had a room with a balcony on Princess). The minimal breakfast was packaged croissants, practically vending machine breakfast. Our main complaint was having to meet the owners at their family store to pay for the room. It took about 30-45 minutes out of our day, and seemed a bit unorganized. For that reason I ranked them lower on service.

We chose little queen as from experience when you visit amazing citys like rome you do not spend time in your hotel so there is no point paying rome prices or staying anywhere fancy.
Little queen in excellently located that you can walk everywhere, its quite (very little street noice) and its got all you need to stop at for some kip, clean up and get out exploring again.
Simone is an interesting characture, it took a few minutes to get hold of him and for him to let us in (he seems quite the entroprenure) but he spent plenty of time with us giving us recomendations and showing us where to go. As we were the only people there we had a choice of all 3 rooms, however they seem all very much the same. The rooms are basic, semi comfortable bed, good bathroom and a little tv if needed. Breakfast consists of very a very well planned little system in the hall area, there is breads, fruit etc on offer however i found the breads to be stale and the milk extreamly potent which didnt impress to much however i knew from previous reviews its not B&B like in the uk and im not really a breakfast person anyway, in rome you can eat amazing food all day just walking down the street.
for people like us who come on holiday to see the world and not hotels so just need somewhere well located and plesent enough to spend the eveing in this is it.
