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.

... people, mostly locals coming together for the daily aperitivo time, which consisted of great company, little snacky foods and of course beer, wine and cocktails which you could buy from the shops that lined the piazza and take them back to eat around the fountain in the middle of the square. After that we went for a wander down some of the backstreets in search of somewhere for dinner. I decided on a nice "surry hill" looking restaurant ...
... has someone outside exhorting passers-by to partake of its culinary delights. An older mafia look-alike 'tout' encouraged us to come in to his restaurant and we were not disappointed. Inside was much larger than many of the little ones around here and had a vaulted ceiling and huge beams. Our meals were fresh and delicious. When we left Mr Mafia was still sitting outside and when he asked where we were from launched into a litany of famous people who ...
The Italians aren't very helpful. You get off the plane and you have no idea where you are going. And quranteen seems to be very laxed.
I was looking for a train to take me into town, I was following all the signs for the train but all I seemed to be doing is going round in circles. I asked people that worked in the airport and they would say you have to go up here, so I would go up, no train. So ask someone else. You need to go back down. I was getting no where ...
... later, one wrong turn added an extra 25 minutes to my walk. Arrghh, Hugh was pacing the Piazza waiting for me whilst being absconded by 15 Pakistani salesman wanting to sell him hats, sunglasses, roses, trinkets, you name they had it. Blog still not finished we returned to the room, finished the Blog and set about starting our day. But not before we addressed the issue of clothes washing. We were directed to a Laundromat around the corner from our Hotel ...
... just the ride of guilt. So I got some pics at the top of the basilica and inside. Pretty amazing. I bet it was just what Jesus had in mind. Or maybe he would be a bigger fan of the dress code the Vatican enforces. Or maybe the prices they charge to see things. You know what, it's actually the souvenir shop you visit on top of the basilica. Jesus always said, "My biggest pet peeve is an improperly dressed poor person." I always loved that ...
