About this listing
In Trastevere, in a beautiful historic building overlooking the famous flea market of Porta Portese, awaits a welcoming and colorful bed and breakfast to enjoy an unforgettable holiday in Rome. Every morning a hearty breakfast with coffee, tea, milk, fruit juice, toast, jams, yoghurts and cereals. Alessia and Silvia will be on hand to offer helpful advice during your stay.
A retro charm is the setting for our 3 large rooms (1 with private bathroom and 2 shared bathroom) furnished with taste and attention to detail, all equipped with wireless Internet access, TV, ara-conditioning, tables for breakfast and kettles when you want to sip hot drinks in your room.
Thanks to its convenient location, the main cultural and artistic attractions of the capital (Campo de 'Fiori, Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, Colosseum, Piazza Venezia, the Capitol, the Vatican), are reachable on foot, with several means of transport that can get comfortably in front of the bed and breakfast. And 'well connected with Termini railway station, the airport is due to the Trastevere station nearby. Also located in an area that offers numerous restaurants, pizzerias, pubs, clubs that meet all tastes.
Today Trastevere still maintains its character through the winding streets covered with cobblestones overlooked by medieval houses. The night is full of people, both Italian and foreign, thanks to the wealth of restaurants and pubs for every price range.
It is one of the most lively, characteristic and self-sufficient city. It offers typical Roman restaurants and pizzerias as well as cinemas, markets (San Cosimato was renovated just recently) , banks, pharmacies, supermarkets, shops of every kind and elegant shops.

Alessia arranged for a private car to bring us from the airport to the apartment which was much appreciated, as we were getting in too late to use public transit and we don't speak Italian. She showed us where everything we would need was, gave us directions for the major places we were going to see, and was very helpful.
The location is ok - you are right in front of a bus/tram stop that can get you into the city, but not directly to several major sites. However, after doing a tour in "old" Trastevere, I wish we had been a bit closer to that area (although it's not prohibitively far to walk). We had everything we needed but the bathroom could have been cleaner. We did appreciate the bed being made every other day and our dishes from breakfast being washed, which we had intended to do ourselves.
Prompt communication, great location. Trastevere is a hip neighborhood a bit out of the way of the more touristy areas, but still close to everything. Alessia kindly upgraded us to the "blue" room which has its own bathroom because her other reservation had canceled (the orange and green rooms share a bathroom). It was nice but the street was very noisy. The "king" size bed was just two smaller beds pushed together. The water in the shower was a bit finnicky, and the continental breakfast was nothing to write home about. Some prepackaged sweet breads and things. Still, we were grateful to have a place to stay in a cool old building (with an old elevator!) and ESPECIALLY grateful that Alessia allowed us to stay an extra night past our booking (which we paid for, of course), because rain was forecast on the day we were due to leave for the Amalfi coast on a motorcycle.
Overall, the B&B did not quite live up to my expectations based on the pictures and description, but it was comfortable enough and a positive experience overall.
It was a very nice house with a large selection of breakfast options and loads of useful maps and guides for tourists in Rome. Bathroom and beds were perfectly clean and towels were provided.
Le B&B est situé dans un bâtiment ancien avec beaucoup de cachet. Nous étions trois couples d'amis, nous avons donc loué les trois chambres doubles à disposition dans l'appartement, du coup c'était très convivial. Une des chambres a une salle de bain privative et les deux autres chambres se partagent la deuxième salle de bain. Il y a également une petite cuisine où le petit déjeuner est à disposition. Ce B&B est parfait pour un week-end prolongé à Rome, il est un peu décentré mais un tram et des bus s'arrêtent juste devant le bâtiment, en 10 min nous étions dans le centre historique et cela nous évitait d'être dans la cohue touristique le soir. Et puis le quartier est sympa, on peut boire son petit café juste en bas et il y a des épiceries pour les dépannages usuels. Alessia est une hôte prévenante, chaque jour quelqu'un passait pour faire nos lits et mettre en place le petit-déj du lendemain. Le seul bémol, c'est que puisque cela donne sur une grande avenue, il y a beaucoup de circulation, si vous aimez dormir la fenêtre ouverte et que vous être sensibles au bruit il faut prévoir les boules quiès :) et puis comme dans tous les grands bâtiments anciens, il y a parfois des problèmes de pression avec la douche. Mais en résumé un très bon rapport qualité et un logement à conseiller.
So this little gem is not what I'm used to as a "b&b" - but it's quite nice and we enjoyed our stay! The b&b is actually three rooms connected by a private hallway. There is a shared kitchen and I think two rooms also share the hallway bathroom. We stayed in the green room - which has a private bathroom. The bed was comfortable (two twins stuck together) and the breakfast was self-serve (a nice variety of breads and yogurts, coffee and juices). The big thing I didn't get is that no one with the b&b is on site - which is why they are so insistent on knowing your arrival time. This is kind of a pain for a traveller who wants a little flexibility. But Silvia was gracious when we moved our check-in time by a few hours the day of. They also were happy to let us keep our luggage there for a few hours after checkout. We chose to walk everywhere from the b&b - though that was pretty far sometimes! It's a fair price and a nice little place!
Nice place if you're looking for a simple room that is only a few train stops away from the upscale/social portion of Trastevere. The only downside, which has nothing to do with the hosts, is that the location is a 15 minute walk from the main Trastevere train station, and still another 15-20 minute walk from the really fun area of Trastevere.
