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.

... are just happy to leave without a care; others seem sad to be leaving behind people they have come to know and relate to. We had already waved Vicki off as she left the tour from Venice to meet up with a girlfriend; where they were continuing their travels to Switzerland and Paris.
It was a flying visit but we really enjoying seeing ancient Rome.
Back to the hotel for a good nights sleep before our long travelling day tomorrow to Athens.
Next was time to find our way to get the bus back to the hotel. We walked for miles but finally found our destination for the 7.15pm bus.
Feet were extremely sore and hot, was 30 degrees today so was great to sit down and enjoy a late drink and dinner!
More adventure tomorrow. So many photos to share by still can't upload any, can't get good internet.
... who had made special pilgrimages for this occasion. They chanted, they clapped and they sang.
Promptly at noon Il Papa appeared and went on to preach and pray for about 15/20 minutes. We didn't understand a lot, apparently the Pope speaks Italian, who knew ! We did understand enough Italian to recognise the Hail Mary, so were able to join in with that and the Benediction. He welcomed the individual groups of pilgrims ...
... to be the Vatican, sadly I waited and waited but no bus arrived to collected me, what’s more being a Sunday I had no way of contacting I.B.M tour company, it was about now I remembered the Hop-On-Hop-Off bus would take me past all the major sights in Rome, cheaper than a taxi and a lot better than sitting on my bum for the day. Armed with my trusty water bottle and a broacher from the hotel I set off to explore the Vatican, having paid the entrance fee and passed ...
... The work consists of thousands of thorns mounted on a backing with the thorns protruding. Not sure what it all means but it is interesting.
After spending over an hour in the gallery we headed over to the Galleria Borghese, another art gallery/museum also containing some famous works. However due to the long line of people waiting to enter we decided to strike it off the list..
Lunch was had in the beautiful park (the Villa Borghese gardens) ...
