“Spartan but Very Adequate”
Reviewed 10 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A great host and close proximity to public transportation made this lodging more than adequate for our needs during our recent visit to Rome. The proprietor, Barbara, was an absolute gem; she was kind, energetic, enthusiastic, and very responsive. That made up for some of the minor negatives, e.g., the outside noise was sometimes a bit much (Italians do love auto horns), the room was small, the shower was European (surprise), and the elevator was tiny. On the plus side, it is a short walk to the Ostiense Train Station from which you can grab the Metro, bus, or train. Barbara keeps the kitchen well stocked with a wide variety of breakfast food, snacks, and drinks. All in - the positives outweighed the negatives.

“Good service”

As previous review I really received warm welcome from Barbara.
My family, 3 adults and 3 children, stayed at 2 rooms. Both rooms are clean and have well equipped bathroom. And more various food stuff in kitchen and beverage in fridge satisfied us in hunger and thirsty at arrival. Barbara told us we could eat it freely at any time, on arrival, night and morning.
In terms of location this B & B is located just 10 min from Ostiense station and Pyramide metro station by foot. We arrived at Fiumicino airport and took regional train and arrived at Ostiense after 30 min. Also we walked to Colosseum for 30 min and came back from Spagna step by Metro transferring at Termini about 10 PM. Surrounding street is typical residential town including some shop and restaurant I could not feel any harm. At the next day I left my luggage at one room and after Vatican tour arrived at 4 PM and took Italo bound for Florence at Ostiense station.
I would definitely revisit here considering kindness of hostess, price and location.

“Value B&B in ROME”
Reviewed 19 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

person found this review helpful

When I searched on line for hotels or B&B,s in Rome, it was very hard to find places that was close to transportation that seemed reasonable. Most places were 130. euros and more. This B&B was a 10 minute walk from Ostience Train station. Local busses and tram rails were close to. The place was very clean with comfortable beds. The breakfast was basic - nothing fancy(but it was available 24 hours ). It was in a safe area and close to many restaurants and bars and a grocery store. The private bath was clean and was well supplied They have 3 app apartments. If you pick one that is on street, close sliding awning to be more quiet from traffic noise. Barbara ,s son- in- law was big help in English translation and local knowledge. Offered to give us a ride when we needed it. Many thanks to him. At 65 euro, s - it, s a bargain.
