Great view and convenient location
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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.

... further added to – getting the bus was actually good although crowded. After the show Mirko took us to a café nearby to try the Sicilian Cannoli – very yummy.
We took the bus only halfway back and stopped near to the Vatican. Very beautiful but we didn’t want to line up with the long lines. Walked back to Trastevere via the 'park’, which skirts this side of Rome. In the middle of it are ...
... Vatican from our hotel we quickly realised it was a good thing we had booked the tour, the line was ridiculous, around 2 corners - crazy!
Our tour was through What A Life Tours and our guide was Carl; a lovely young German guy (he sounded American) who has a Masters in Christian Arts - he had so much knowledge and was super friendly. There was SO much to take in, the history is incredible and ...
Today's installment, like the past few days, are reported by Bob: Today was a day of the underground. We toured several underground excavations from 2300 years ago..more on that later. Our objective for the day was to visit several churches that have eluded us these past five days. Our first stop was Santa Maria Maggiore. According to myth, Mary appeared to Pope Liberius 5 August 352 AD and told him to build a church exactly where snow would fall ...
... cities, there was bound to be a double decker bus tour with audio equipment to hear the history of the city. I was correct and including the price of the train to get to Rome, it worked out at a fraction of the price.
The first stop was at the iconic Colosseum. When people talk about Rome, I think the Colosseum is probably the first image which springs to mind.
The Colosseum is magnificent to look at, however I think the ...
... over your shoulder, to signal that you will oneday return to Rome. Apparently around 3000 euros is biffed in everyday. We chose to save our coins and just laughed at others throwing theirs. We moved on towards the Pantheon and enjoyed looking through the many busy street stalls and markets along the way. I guess being a Sunday there were more people out than usual, because the streets and sights were absolutely packed with locals and tourists alike. We came around the corner to ...
