Historical Traveler Reviews Roman and Italian Bed and Breakfast Rome
What a great place!
We stayed at the Roman and Italian B&B the week before Easter this year. Marco is the best host we've ever had in a B&B, bar none. So helpful, so friendly, so smart and easy to talk to. The rooms were spotless and the location was perfect. We'll definately stay there on our next trip to Rome!
We booked a room in this hotel after reading lots of good feedback in this website. I must say that all of the feedback are true. The best part of this hotel is Marco, the owner. He's just the right man to run this friendly and homely place. Just try this hotel and you won't be dissapointed!
Roman and Italian Bed and Breakfast
We just got back from 12 days in Rome, and I must say that the B&B was the highlight of the trip! Marco, the owner, is a complete sweetheart and is willing to go above and beyond what he needs to. We stayed in a room that was actually located in his own personal flat, and he made us feel like we were just at home. He has 7 rooms, and the prices are AMAZING! It is located literally 3 feet from the Manzoni train stop. Please try this B&B. I promise that you will not be disappointed!
Super-Friendly B&B, great deal, great location
I had a last-minute travel plans to stay in Rome for couple of days. It was durig the busy new years season. I had trouble getting a place and then found out about Roman and Italian B&B. The owner is Marco, a very friendly 30-something year old Romanian who moved to Rome with a dream to open a B&B back in 95 which he succeeded at just few years later. He showed me all his availalbe rooms and made arrangements to accomodate me. I stayed for two nights only. His staff (Ana) is very friendly and makes awesome meals. I was new to Rome and they had me stay for a dinner one night. The house comfortable, well put together. Nothing extravaggant but very functional and clean. Most of all, very freindly all over. They had free internet, a ton of movies (both DVD and VHS), XBox, and sattelite TV, just in case you want to hang at home sometime. The location, to me, was perfect. It's right on a metro station. Neighborhood appears very safe and clean. I found couple of good restaurants few blocks away as well. In a nutshell, this was the best value for money I got traveling in Europe.
We stayed in the apartment for 5 nights in October 2004 with our friends, two bedrooms, kitchen, and one bathroom, very compact! The location is great and we walked everywhere. Marco and Carlotta care about their guests and are very proud of their apartment.
And do take advantage of the airport service that Marco offers, the price is right and he gives you an insider's view of Roma!
Excellent alternative to a hotel in Rome
This is a great alternative to a hotel. Marco has added a 2 bedroom flat to his B&B. It is 3 blocks from the B&B but worth the walk. We felt safe walking at night in this neighborhood which is not far from the colosseum. We were two couples traveling together the first week of Nov. 2004 and found this to be the perfect solution for us. We had out own bedroom but shared the kitchen and bathroom. The beds were very comfortable and my husband loved the pillows. In fact, he purchesed similar pillows from Ikea after we returned home because he liked them so much! Everything is new and very clean. This would also work for a family with children since one bedroom had bunkbeds in addition to the queensize bed. Marco is very kind and helpful and we would definitely stay at his B&B again. Marco also has a car service and will pick you up at the airport for a reasonable rate. Try the restaurant on the corner; turn left as you exit the building.
Stayed there for 3 days in May 2004. The place is perfect for tourists needing a "base" for all there is to see in Rome. Simple. Affordable. Comfortable. Great location -- Manzoni station entrance is right in front of the building. Cereal, bread, fruit, juice, and coffee every morning starts your busy day the right way. The bathroom is shared, but it is spotless, the water is fine, and just cooperate with other guests so everybody has a turn. We would leave after breakfast and return after 10pm every night, with no problems. It was wonderful. The entire wall in the "lobby" hallway is filled with photographs of happy guests. One more thing: Carlotta and Marco are nice people. They are a hard-working couple with a little boy. We felt fortunate to stay at their place during our trip, and we would definitely return.
WONDERFUL Bed and Breakfast
This is absolutely one of the best buget bed and breakfasts we have stayed in while in Europe. Marco and Carlotta, who both speak English, are wonderful hosts who go above and beyond for their guests. Small bed and breakfast......only 3 rooms sharing one bath......but clean and so VERY convenient to almost all that Rome has to offer. Only a 15 minute walk to the Coloseum and Forum, a metro stop LITERALLY at the entrance to the building, a cab stand up the street and many restaurants and shops nearby. Great working class neighborhood safe to walk in at night. Very adequate breakfast served. Don't expect a 3 star hotel, but you definitely CANNOT go wrong by staying here. We will definitely stay with Marco and Carlotta every time we go to Rome.
Friendly and Convenient
Run by friendly family. Nice breakfast and very close to all the sites!
A comfortable home away from home! A great place and a great value!!
Great Little B &B
My friend and I spent 6nights at this little place and it was the best! The location is super we were in the heart of Rome 3steps from the Metro Station Manzoni. Marco the owner of the B&B was very friendly and helpful he even picked us up from the train station. Every Morning Deana had breakfast already in the foyer. She even took me one morning to the local market so I could take some photos. She spoke only a few words in English and I spoke only a few words in Italian but we understood each other great. We taught each other different phrases every morning. It's that type of friendliness and openess that has made my stay in Rome most memorable.

... Rome and we could have planned it a lot better and gone inside more tourist venues, I felt that we were more victims than tourists. I can't remember London or Paris being that extreme. The Colosseo Metro has a toilet and charges you 50c to use it. We both needed to go but only had 70c in change. (It would not take a 1€ coin). I am not very city streetwise and had a brilliant idea that Sue could go first and ...

He discussed they type of entertainment which included animal battles in the morning, public executions at noon and gladiator fights in the afternoon. Of course the entertainment included "comedic" interludes such as a dog fighting a porcupine or a woman fighting a little person. ...
We didn't have to leave until 11.15 so decided to stroll around and see what we may. We stumbled upon what appeared to be an old ruin near our hotel - as it was close by we thought we'd have a look inside and what a treasure! Built in about 290 and restored and improved upon over the years. Along with a huge pipe organ and other religious paraphernalia it also had a sundial and calendar (see the pics) We realised it was 10.30 so rushed back to ...
... to get very hungry, which is a good thing because I don't think any of us anticipated the feast we were about to enjoy. Amy and I dined with Hayde, Lynn, Bill and Neil and Raylene. The food kept coming as did the drinks with Bill and Neil having up to 3 beers each awaiting to be drunk and we were only into the second starter and as soon as a bottle of red was finished another appeared. Our meal consisted of three starters; rockmelon, prosciutto and tomato bruschetta, then a ...

One last delicious lunch (homemade basil pesto pasta and delicious meatball- esqe treats) and a heartfelt goodbye led us to here - a train to Naples - which had to cross the sea to get to mainland, so ...
