    Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Franci Bed and Breakfast Rome

    Great view and convenient location

    from

    We had a nice stay at Casa Franci. The owners were very, very helpfun, even before we arrived to Rome, answering many doubts by e-mail. The room with a view to San Pietro is really nice and the location, very convenient. We walked from there to all the places we wanted to see in Rome.

    Don't Waste Your Money

    from

    What a joke is right. The website said "FREE OR CHEAP GARAGE PARKING" We arrived at 5pm, were leaving the next day at 12pm and we were charged 75 euro. The "PRIVATE BATHROOM" was across the hall through the kitchen. I woke up in the morning to use the bathroom and walked out in my robe to see someone sitting at the table. I was not aware of a private bathroom not in the room. The stay in this place set the tone for a horrible stay in Rome. Stay up in Tuscany, Rome is a big city with rude people.!

    Everything we expected and more

    from

    My daughter and I were completely comfortable at Casa Franci. The accomodations were everything that the website promised. The bed was comfortable, and the room and bathroom clean. The location was perfect. We could see St. Peter's from our terrace, and felt quite safe in the neighborhood even at night, an important consideration for women traveling alone. Nearby was an internet point, the best gelato we had in all of Italy, a great Indian restaurant, and a handy pizza place.

    Public transportation was easily accessible. We took the bus from the train station as directed on the web site. Once off, we were a little confused as to where to go, but neighbors walking on the street happily gave us the "one block away" directions we needed, in English.

    We would definitely stay at Casa Franci again, and heartily recommend it.

    Casa Franci B&B

    from

    My husband and I were so delighted to be at Casa Franci. They gave us wonderful directions and we had no trouble finding it. They have a great location not far from the train station, which made it easy for transportation to other destinations in Italy. We enjoyed the view of the Vatican from the little balcony off our bedroom-perfect for coffee in the morning. The room was what we expected to see from the web site, and it was clean and fit our needs just fine. Francesca was very warm and engaging, and offered her advice and help whenever we needed it. She was genuinely interested in us enjoying our stay in Rome, and went out of her way to be accommodating.

    Picturesque and Perfect

    from

    This is one place I would return to in an instant - and fully intend to as soon as possible! The starting point has to be the view - eating a (delicious) breakfast on the balcony overlooking St Peter's is one of life's absolute indescribable luxuries. So is staying in an apartment with such warm, friendly, informative and exuberant hosts!

    Casa Franci is in a perfect location. It is intimate and informal and would suit any independent devotee of Rome. The room was very comfortable. It is rare to have your accommodation enhance your feeling of involvement with a city, but Rome was made even better by my stay at Casa Franci - the highest praise I can give it.

    Wonderful, friendly b & b in a perfect location

    from

    This B & B is in a terrific location very close to the Vatican, is clean and very comfortable. Awaken to the bells of St. Peters and a delicious full breakfast, with yogurt, fruit, biscuits, juice and coffee or tea. On a sunny day, Francesca may make you a cappucino to enjoy on the balcony with a view of St. Peter's Basilica.

    Francesca and Fabrizio will help you find your way around and encourage you to explore Rome. Both speak excellent English. It's easy walking distance to the Vatican, the Tiber and other sights, in a quiet neighborhood, with great access to trains and bus.

    The friendly owners of Casa Franci will give you a comfortable introduction to Rome, or a fine welcome-back.

    Romes perfect haven

    from

    casa roma has all you need for an amazing time in a fantastic location. We couldnt believe the view from the balcony, st pauls basillica right before your eyes. The room was a perfect size and breakfast every day was lovelly. On the quieter side of the river but within walking distance to all the sites, it just means you get to see even more of the beautiful city. we will return one day. thanks for making our time in rome so easy xx

    Lovely

    from

    Everyone was lovely and we really enjoyed our stay. The owners were very helpful and I have already recommended this excellent place to friends.

    Glad to be home

    from

    Awful! This place is a joke. The room was more like a cupboard and I'm not joking, when sitting on the toilet you have to rest one foot in the shower tray and your shoulder is rubbing up against the sink.

    As for the view, well if you're into washing machines, mops....from your balcony, oh and don't forget the train tracks, you'll enjoy the view.

    Our trip to Rome was ruined by this place, we were so glad to be going home, what a rip off.

    No clean towels in 5 days either. As for the breakfast, a container of cornflakes, a couple of biscuits and a piece of cake. That's it!

    Definitely would not recommend this place at all. Very disappointed, not like the photos at all.

We organised this upon arrival at the station, feeling that events at the Florence train station have put us in good stead for refining the art of ticket purchasing. Anyway it feels good to have earmarked that day and committed to going. This time it was a case of problem-free ticketing. I am bursting with anticipation to discover Ancient Rome ...

    ... loop, Bobbie and Marilyn scouted shops while Marty and I looked for birra (beer) signs. Upon getting off the bus, we both had our orders. We were all dedicated to our missions. Marty and I pulled the old panzer maneuver and attacked an Irish pub that had the theme from "Top Gun" blaring. The gals apparently encountered nothing that absolutely had to be taken prisoner. The assault on the local economy is grueling and ongoing. Dawn may bring ...

As for those thunder storms, I only experienced a few drops of rain on the walk back. I’m hoping there will be real rain tomorrow because I want to see the rain fall through the oculus at the Pantheon! I also stopped at a little store close to the apartment that I’d ...

    After walking through the ruins of the Roman Forum and seeing the Temple of Mars, we sat in the shade of a tree with the backdrop of the colosseum and did the most cliche thing we could do - watch Gladiator on the iPad. As the time went bye and the sun hit its afternoon amber, we walked back to the colosseum for our tour. We commenced our tour and were instantly glad we had waited and spent the extra coin. We learned so much about the grand monument. It ...
