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.

... of wine in the campo just like my good ole college days. The kids quickly made friends in the campo and had a soccer game going in no time.
After Siena we had 5 days in a villa in Tuscany. It was amazing; so beautiful and serene. The drive was interesting as we were literally in the middle of no where and only found our place by asking locals. The establishment was great and rented out 7 villas ( that had been divided into apartments) on ...

... Michelangelo got upset with Pope Zacheria and fled to Florence...a few days later he wrote a letter to the Pope apologizing. From here, Michelangelo outlined what he wanted to paint to the Pope and he agreed to proceed. From here on out, artists finally gained the creative freedom to build what they want and sell their work freely vs be demanded to create only what those in power requested. We also learned that most skilled artists were skilled illusionist at times - if you ...
... top of a hill. The bus was unable to get to the top so we got to travel by funicular part way up, then by shuttle the rest of the way. We were packed in like sardines and it was stinking hot. Sadly not everyone's deodorant was working. At the top we had another Basilica to see. Even the tour guide must have been over it as well as she didn't even offer to take us in. Instead, we went to a pasticceria for a coffee and pastry or two. It was so ...
... arrived in full force and it was wall to wall people. I don't do well in wall to wall people. Especially when people get in my space or cut me off. I tend to push and shove a little... The Basilica was beautiful, but it was difficult with all of the people. All of the decorations in the Basilica are made of stone and mosaic. It was huge and amazing to see.
After our tour ended we decided to go back to our room and had a quick rest, a cappuccino ...
