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.

... deal to see, except for its sheer size, and we waited patiently for the hop on hop off bus. Patience was needed as Roman traffic can make bus timetables an rough estimate at best. When it arrived we were in for a long trip to Venezia Piazza via the Vatican. Still we haven't spent any time in that part of the city and it was a pleasant meander along the Tiber River.
First stop after our stop, so to speak, was a lunch spot.

Hint, don't hit undo when writing a long blog......b.....r, Anyway, had dinner with travel group and guide last night. Mixed group, three couples and four single woman aged from 52 to 90. The guide is a nice woman. I think we should all get along fine. Took a guided bus ride today through the highlights of rome plus another walk including climbing the Spanish steps. I might hope to lose weight except that the gelato is nice and the wine acceptable. Walked to a local cathedral with ...
My apartment 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, for 8 of us girls (all classmates of mine). We have all the basics which has helped me settle in! (Pictures to come soon). It is definitely different here, and getting used to ice cold showers is now a must, but I have a balcony overlooking Via Trastevere right off of my room.

... br> Despite the taxi drivers I love Rome and I am so excited to be here again. I had saved Airmiles points to get two nights at the fabulous Intercontinental de la Villa Hotel situated above the Spanish Steps. One could not ask for a better hotel or a better location. Susan and I had stayed at the Intercontinental Westminster in London and if anything this one is even more wonderful. They offer to upgrade our room if we are willing ...
... it in the next 2 weeks and then I’ll just leave it here at the apartment for someone else to enjoy (rather than lug it around for the next 6 weeks). As for those thunder storms, I only experienced a few drops of rain on the walk back. I’m hoping there will be real rain tomorrow because I want to see the rain fall through the oculus at the Pantheon! I also stopped at a little store close to the apartment that I’d ...
