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.

... are helped by there being an empty row in front, which David grabs before takeoff. Apparently we circle for about 15 minutes prior to landing, giving Scott a great view of the Mediterranean, but I am unaware and wake up when they turn the seatbelt sign back on. Easiest flight ever...until we land. Rome Fiumicino is also under major renovation (reconstruction) and most flights are being met by buses on the tarmac. And so we wait for a bus, and ...
... is over 2000 years old and being able to see all of the original construction at the top of the arches... Amazing.
Trevi Fountain was sadly more than under construction- it had the shrink wrap all over, but there was also no water... I'm so gutted, as this was something I was really looking forward to, but never mind, I will just have to come back!!
On the way to lunch we stopped for amazing coffee and gelato.. Neither of ...
... met some lovely people and saw the most amazing cities and historical buildings and sites. I feel like I need to return to class and revisit ancient history as it seems to hold more significance now than when I was 15 years old! I think I can safely say I am keen to travel again, although maybe not for six weeks next time. Fun facts from our European Vacation Turkish people have vats ...

The inside (ground level) of St. Peter's is stunning with Bernini's 'Starburst Dove' alabster window in the apse (radiating yellow light) and his incredible towering bronze canopy centre/stage, over the tomb of St Peter (imagine a very elaborate 4 poster bed). There were some wonderful sculptures (Michaelangelo's 'Pieta' is truly exquisite, even behind glass) and many others, amazing marble mosaic floors in multiple colours, more ...
... It was so beautiful and full of paintings all over the walls. Ive never seen a church like that before. Then I walked to the back and there was something a little creepy. There was a tomb of someone but it was clear glass so I could see inside. I couldnt tell if it was real or if it was wax. The person died in the 1700's so thats a long time for a body to be there. I called my mom over and even she couldnt tell ...
