About This Listing
This quiet, spacious and cozy Double Room has a top-notch Queensize bed and a newly renovated Private Bathroom located just external the room, non-ensuite. It also comes with mini-fridge, electric kettle, independent AC/Heat, and free 24/7 Wi-Fi.
The guesthouse is conveniently located in the heart of 18th Century Rome, right off the corner of one of Rome's main plazas, Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II. It's just a 5 minute walk away from the central Train Station Termini, and the famed Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, and just a 15 minute passeggiata to the Roman Forum and Colosseum.
This private room also comes with all of the classic amenities you'd expect to find in a fine hotel, including hair-dryers, glasses, Turkish patchwork rugs, and designer bedding and towels.
Feel free to contact us if you need more information and we'll answer as fast as possible.
The guesthouse also has two other rooms, all with a shared foyer, and on request and weather permitting guests may have access to our beautiful roof-top lounge.
Interaction with Guests
Privacy and safety guaranteed. We're here if you need us as we do live on premisses, but our guests' privacy is paramount.
The multi-ethnic neighborhood of Esquilino is rich in both diversity and vibrant city life. There are incredible markets, cheap Roman bistros, and an old-school gelateria you won't find anywhere else in the city!
Getting around is very easy with the vast majority of sites, including the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain and Piazza Navona, easily reachable on foot. For the rest there's the Metro A line Vittorio Emanuele stop at 100 meters from the guesthouse.
Other Things to Note
Amenities include: Independent Air Conditioning/Heat, Free 24/7 Wi-Fi, and Towels & Linens included. You'll get a set of keys and be able to come and go as you please. Breakfast is not included.
Maturity and respect. You will get the keys and be able to come and go as you please. There are no rules, but we would obviously kindly ask that you respect your neighbors and other guests staying in the guesthouse. We believe it is best to live and let live, do on to others, not break anything and let Karma do the rest :)
We came late at night as our flight was delayed. Frank was waiting for us with the keys and gave us really good advice for our day in Rome. The place is in a very good position, 10 min walk from the train station. The place is very clean and with great decoration. We booked for two nights, and the only disadvantage was that we had to move rooms, and the second one was a bit loud as it was facing the street. Otherwise great!
The room we tried to book was not available. Frank rearranged us to stay at another property. So we cannot really provide feedback on the photo accuracy.
The place we stayed at is new, clean and tidy. The bed is comfortable too. The only draw back about the room is that it has no ensuite. The room offered has a private bathroom / toilet but it is outside our room.
Location of the property we stayed in is close to public transport and reasonably central.
Frank was very helpful even before we arrived. Frank organised taxi bookings for us. We were picked up immediately on arrival and departure.
On arrival, Frank took the time to brief us about the area, and some tips. It made our stay a lot more pleasant. Thanks Frank!
Frank & Soledad's guesthouse was perfect for our trip to Rome. Frank met us on arrival, was extremely helpful with any queries we had & even gave us a tourist-friendly map of Rome.
The guesthouse is ideally located to the metro for easy access to all of the famous ancient roman spots plus it's modern, clean and very homely.
I would highly recommend Frank & Soledads guesthouse whether it a short city break or longer trip to Rome.
What a great stay! Very easy to meet up with Frank, even after we had some travel changes. The apartment is beautiful, and a close walk to Termini and the Colosseum. Frank was very informative, and even provided us with a map and ideas of things to do during our stay. I would highly recommend his place!
We had a wonderful time staying at Frank and Soledad's place. The best part was the incredibly helpful advice that Frank gave us on arrival - from tips on the best places to eat, using public transport and how to get tickets to places like the Colosseum. Frank's advice was invaluable and helped us make the most of our time in Rome.
The room is a great size and the bathroom was very clean. Would definitely recommend staying here.
The place was easily accessible to by metro to Vitorio Emmanuele from Termini station. Just a 3 minutes walk. Frank was very responsive to your queries and offers sound advice to move around. The place was very clean and quiet. I loved it and location of Frank's place was easy enough for me to navigate my way around to the various locations around the historic centre.
Frank his appartement was situated in a great location. His information about all the nice restaurants and wine places was perfect. The bed was very comfertable as well as the bathroom that is situated at the other end of the entrance hall. The other room in the appartement has a kitchen and bathroom included in one place if you are looking for a bigger and spacious place to stay. Thank you very much Frank for all your enthusiasm and help!!
