Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Fellini Rome
Rome on a budget
Travelling in February to Rome is definitely off season, and my daughter and myself expected off season rates when it came to places to stay. We picked this B & B because of its location to the metro and because it was affordable. Although there was a mixup about our arrival time in Rome, the host was very amicable. I would have appreciated a sign outside the apartment that said "ring the bell" or "Fellini Bed and Breakfast" - our instructions just said go to the 5th floor of the building. There's a very small elevator in the building which lets you out on a landing with 2 apartment front doors for you to choose from. I do not know how many rooms are available in the main, 5th floor, apartment - at least two, that I know of. Our room was actually one flight up with its own rooftop garden, kitchen, two double beds and new bathroom, still being re-modeled. Everything was very clean. Breakfast was always served on the 5th floor (one flight down) but not until 8:30 a.m. and that was too late for us! We did meet some fellow travelers at breakfast and were able to compare notes. The rooms are located about 10 minutes from the Trevi Fountain. Our host spoke English, even giving us his cell phone number to get in touch with him since no one lives on the premises. As two women travelling by ourselves, we felt very safe at this residential apartment building.
Was very worried on staying here as i had read many negative reviews, but was by far better than some of the reviews given. The helper anna was very pleasant. The room was spotless and the location was great 5 minute walk to both spanish steps and trevi fountain. Did not have any breakfast unfortunatly as there was so many nice cafes we wanted to try. But the overall stay was fantastic and i felt we where made very welcome and the stay was well worth the money. My saying is you get what you pay for theses reviews that have been given where harsh as they knew it was'nt the hilton. But the decor was very modern and the stay was enjoyable and i would love to return again.
Great Location, Spotless!
I stayed here last February, I had some reservations after reading some negative reviews on some websites but I had already changed from another bed and breakfast. I feel some of the critisism of Fellini is unfair. The only person we met was the maid Anna (or Ala?), who I found very friendly and helpful. I do speak some italian and this made things a lot easier. I don't think she speaks much english so maybe that is why the reviewer above felt that she was being rude. The location is perfect, the whole B & B is spotless. Regarding the breakfast, being Irish I would have prefered a more substantial one, but you have to remember Italians don't really eat a big breakfast, so I think the old adage "When in Rome" applies here. When you travel you can't expect things to be the same as back home.
The good and bad
Fellini's is a little B&B, in a great location in Rome. It has AC, is clean and the beds are comfortable (the pillows are like rocks). The proprieter is quite friendly but unfortunately, we had the most contact with his helper, Anna, who is very rude, unfriendly and unpleasant. Breakfast is a loose term for the meager fare served in the morning though the coffee is excellent. The only other problem we had is JeanPierre ordered a car to pick us up at the airport and we got overcharged by quite a lot. He orders many cars for his customers, in fact offers this as a service on his website, and I would think he'd be able to choose honest drivers.

... bus to Rome, hopped on the Metro, and arrived at our last B&B, The Nicolas Inn, with no drama. Thank goodness! We are staying in Rome's historical center, a three minute walk to the Roman Forum and a five minute walk to the Colosseum. After a late lunch of delicious pizza and some gelato, we thought we'd tackle the Forum. Mark finally had his lump in the throat moment! He was surprised by his reaction to the ruins ...
... some free time at night and were at the Plazza Navona. There is a fountain, Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi http://www.rome.info/bernini/fountain-f our-rivers with 4 figures which represent the 4 rivers of the world: Ganges, Nile, Danube and Rio de la Plata.
Terri and I sat down at a little outdoor restaurant, right on the square, and had a cappuccino. Perfect way to people watch the passer byers and the street merchants running up to the square with ...
... the bridge. I decided I needed to walk back to the hotel this way I might see him on the way, knowing Bobby he would back track as he went looking for me. I arrived at the hotel 20 minutes later to no sign of Bobby. He also had our hotel key. The hotel people were so kind and offered all sorts of drink, food and help. I went to the room and found the cell number and I asked the desk to call him. As I suspected he kept walking and in the wrong direction. He had found some bus ...
... of swims in the water which was sensational as it is soooo hot and humid and the view from the water up the hill is unreal. My hut is just that… an open air hut. I have to laugh at some of the places I have stayed. Tys is on a mattress on the floor outside. Hope it doesn’t rain???!!
Trust me….. I will really love it tomorrow. It is just a little different, but the people are lovely and friendly. Woweeee this is all so ...
... of maps of Italy and its cities, and of course the Sistine Chapel which you could easily have spent hours just staring up at all the detail and depth of the images.
Feeling quite hungry when we came out we stopped for a Panini then walked slowly towards the Ancient Roman monuments through central Rome. Feeling a little tired already we decided to stop for an espresso in the Piazza Navona. The waitress asked if we wanted a seat but we said no we would ...
