      Historical Traveler Reviews Arco del Lauro Rome

      Great B&B


      Arco Del Lauro is in a fantastic location in the Trastevere. As everyone has said, Lorenza is brilliant, she gives good advice before and during your stay and is very helpful throughout.

      The room is small, but clean. It contains all you need for a short stay in the city. We walked to every major attraction Rome has to offer from here.

      If we ever return to Rome, we won't even look anywhere else for accomodation. This was perfect.

      Una maravilla más de Roma!!!!


      Roma definitivamente me tiene enamorada, y mi estancia en ARCO DEL LAURO ha tenido mucho que ver; es ya la segunda vez que voy a este encantador Bed&breakfast en pleno corazón del Trastevere.

      Ya estuve en Diciembre que decidí viajar sola, tengo 26 años y estuve muyyy agusto, ahora en Marzo he vuelto con una amiga para deleitarme de nuevo con las maravillas romanas, y disfrutar de las comodidades y atenciones de quien regenta El bed&breakfast, Lorenza, realmente tengo que poner verdadero enfasis y hacer hincapié en el trato que he recibido las dos veces por parte de Lorenza, la tremenda ayuda que brinda a sus huespedes con información, consejos.. etc..

      El sitio está decorado con muy buen gusto, limpísimo, las habitaciones son preciosas TODAS, con baño impecable dentro de cada una de las habitaciones, en fin.. UNA MARAVILLA MÁS DE ROMA, el precio es muy económico y asequible a cualquiera... La verdad es que nunca había estado tan agusto en un alojamiento, y por ello ya he repetido 2 veces.. y seguro que antes del verano VOLVERÉ... asi que Lorenza hazme un hueco.... POR FAVORRRR!!!!!!

      Si estais buscando algo en Roma no os lo penseis, es un sitio totalmente recomendable y querreis volver y volver como me ha pasado a mi; encima Lorenza habla un montón de idiomas y no hay problema de comunicación, tiene una perra monísima y muy juguetona que es una delicia, Emma, de verdad que saldreis enamorados de este rinconcito tan acogedor del Trastevere..... Yo me sentía como en mi casa, y encima hay un rinconcito con internet donde poder tomarte un café con galletitas....

      En fin! UN BOMBÓN el sitio... a ver si más adelante pongo fotos para que veais... de momento aqui queda mi experiencia repetida, y con ganas de reincidir....

      SALUDOS... y Buen viaje a Tutti!

      Great B&B in central Rome


      Arco del Lauro is a small B&B in the Trastevere area of Rome. The rooms are simply, yet stylishly furnished and extremely clean - the place was renovated in 2005 and it shows. This is not a 'flashy' establishment, but when we compared it to other (dated) accommodation in the same price bracket it stood out as a winner.

      Booking via the website was easy - owner Lorenza replied quickly to our requests. The Arco is up a small cobbled street with plenty of character. The rooms are housed within an ground floor apartment, and you have your own key - making you feel like a real Roman. Beds were warm and very comfortable and breakfast was provided at a small cafe round the corner. No bath, but sampcious shower. Federico, our host, was extremely friendly and helpful with info on local buses and restaurant recommendations etc - couldn't have been nicer.

      The best thing about this B&B is that it is away from the tourist traps on the other side of the river, and has the best authentic restaurants and bars in Rome, full of Italians, not tourists! However, it is within easy walking distance (10-15mins) of all the main attractions and has excellent transport links. If you want a simple, stylish impression of the 'real' Rome, then we would highly recommend it. It's only failing was that the heating did not come on in the evening and there was limited hot water then (make sure you shower in the morning).

      Highly recommended - would definately stay again.



      We stayed at Arco del Lauro b&B for 3 nights. Congratulations to Lorenza for her great taste. Everything in this B&B is selected carefully and the delicate minimal interior is in great contradiction with the typical Roman Location of Trastevere which is full of life. Lorenza (the owner) was very kind and helpfull with everything we needed and ...really lucky with her new "carrier" (L., you know what I mean...)

      We'll come back!


      Arrivederci Arco Del Lauro


      Tengo que decir que fue maravillosa mi estancia en Arco del Lauro, viajé sola, estuve 10 días en una habitación preciosa, todo estaba muy limpio y nuevo. Resultaba incluso muy agradable quedarse en la habitación los días de mucha lluvia y frio, porque realmente era como estar en casa, muy acogedor, pudiendo usar internet, tomar un café o jugar con Emma... (perrita preciosa de Lorenza).

      Debo agradecer a Lorenza el trato tan cariñoso y la tremenda ayuda que me dió... fué una experiencia que pienso repetir muy pronto..

      El barrio donde se encuentra Arco del Lauro, el Trastevere, está lleno de rincones preciosos y llenos de vida.. Roma es mágica y me encanta pero la sensación de hogar que tuve todo el tiempo debo agradecerselo al Arco del Lauro y a los maravillosos parajes del Trastevere...

      Muchas gracias Lorenza por todo, y enhorabuena por "el hogar" tan acogedor que ofreces!!!

      Besos para ti y Emma..

      y ésperame que volveré muy pronto!!!!!!!

      Best B&B in all of Rome


      We were so fortunate to find this wonderful B&B hidden in a picturesque old quarter of Trastevere in Rome. As architects, we are both extremely picky but we fell in love with Arco del Lauro from Day 1. This four room B&B is immaculate and tastefully decorated. Better than most of the hotels we had stayed in on this trip. We loved starting the day with a breakfast at a nearby cafe (pre-arranged by Lorenza, the owner) which consisted of a perfect cup of cappucino, orange juice and brioche.

      It is also in a great location away from the touristy spots but yet close to everywhere by walking or by bus. We also found this area to be more popular to locals with many excellent restaurants such as Cornucopia. {Their Insalata di Mare (Seafood Salad) is absolutely to-die-for.}

      Most of all, our stay at Arco del Lauro was made very special by the touch of Lorenza who became our dear friend. The first night we got there, she invited us to share her homemade limoncello liqueur which was absolutely amazing! She was so helpful and genuinely friendly, and made sure we had everthing we needed.

      Without a hesitation, we will always return to Arco del Lauro whenever in Rome.

      Our pictures do very little to show the space so it would be best to check out the photos on the website at -----

      Hidden Treasure in Trastevere


      We had bought plane tickets for a last-minute short break in Rome at the end of September and were beginning to wonder if we would ever find a place to stay. Everywhere was either fully booked or too far out of town or very expensive. By chance, with only a few days left before departure from Scotland, we discovered the Arco del Lauro in Trastevere, a new little B & B which had been open for only a few weeks. What a treasure! Hidden away in the heart of the old Jewish quarter, surrounded by all the noisy motorbikes, busy shops and bustling restaurants that you expect to find in this part of Rome, the Arco del Lauro turned out to be an oasis of calm and tranquillity. Landlady Lorenza has refurbished a ground-floor apartment from top to bottom, creating three rooms, all in very modern style but with occasional pieces of handsome antique furniture. Everything is stylish and in the best of taste. When we were there, a few things still had to be sorted out; we were offered a discount because the free internet access had not been set up yet. Lorenza does not live on the premises herself but she visits at least twice a day and guests have her private telephone number. She was very anxious that we had everything we needed, from a good map of the city to information about the opera. Coffee and tea-making facilities are provided in the lobby of the B & B - along with a constantly replenished supply of peanuts in their shells! Breakfast is included in the price and for this you go to a little cafe just around the corner where you can sit on the terrace and enjoy your cappuchino as you plan your day. An excellent restaurant, Cornucopia, was also within five minutes' walk of the B & B. (This is a popular place - best to book in the evening). In fact many of Rome's tourist attractions, including the Colosseum and the Roman Forum, are within walking distance of the Arco del Lauro. Highly recommended!

      Hidden Gem


      By sheer chance we found this hidden gem of a B&B in Rome. Lorenza speaks excellent English and has just opened her B&B. There are 3 rooms, all of which are very tastefully decorated and best of all the rooms are quiet. Lovely area - easy to get to from the airport - train and tram or bus.

The floor of the arena would have been a huge wooden floor with elevators and traps doors below, covered in a red volcanic sand, heavy enough that when the wind blew, and it blows a lot here, that it would not create a sand storm. The wind that is constantly around the place was actually why they built the thing ...

      ... We left the Forum with a new appreciation for how ancient Romans lived their lives, steeped in politics (both capital "P" and lower-case “p”).

      Finally exhausted by our long walk, we wandered towards town again where we stopped for pizza, three pastas and beer in a small side alley, where the wind was whipping up and we were glad to be sheltered. What a great day filled with rich history of Rome – much of which we learned ...
