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.

... giant statue of Nero (and the Sol) which was placed out the front of the theatre, called the Collosos. The theatre itself is an amphitheatre (or double theatre, making it elliptical) built by the emperor Vespasian, and by his successor and heir Titus. The theatre was built on the former lake belonging to the emperor Nero, who was overthrown in a coup d'etat by the Praetorian Guard due to his extravagances. It was built to host massive games, that were thrown for free ...
... daily espressos Italian style standing at the bar instead of sitting at a table.
We must be adopting Italian attitudes as we walk across the roads and show no fear. Today I had to give an Italian hand gesture to a taxi driver who wasn't going stop and even let out a "Mama Mia". Then we were asked for directions, probably because we were one of the few people standing on the street NOT looking at a map. Rome is wonderful but the down side would ...
... raspberry and meringue and a coffee and it only came to 21€. Must be the best value meal I've had and one of the best tasting. It was so good I tipped them 5€, places like that deserve to thrive. It's called the 'l'asino d'or' or 'golden ass' - I was amused to see that it's proprietor is Lucio Sforza and Valentina Harris is a Sforza - it is however a vast noble family It's the slowest I've ever walked back up the ...
... Next the plan was to walk to the Spanish Steps but since we were running ahead of schedule we started roaming around the streets. So basically we decided to roam in Rome...sorry I had to! As we explored we found so many interesting side streets and little shops to check out! It truly was an adventure kind of day...the down side was soooo much walking. Some of the kids started to fade real fast this evening though as the heat and walking caught up ...
Sunday we moved from our flash little B&B30 in Via Jacobini and into the amazing apartment at Trastevere. Walked down to the local coffee bar to ask directions for a bus to Piazza Navona. The guy behind the counter had no English but we got the rough idea we had to go down 'that way' to get tram number eight. Quite a bit of walking and speculating led to us hailing a taxi. Just at that moment, Megan called to say the power had gone off in the house. A few quick ...
