b&b house on the trees! 2

Bed & Breakfast - Private room · Via Ginori, Rome, Lazio 00153, Italy

The Space

A charming bed and breakfast in the centre of Rome and of the Roman spirit, for a stay that will measure up to your wishes: relaxing, fun, cultural, culinary.
The neighbourhood
Our B&B is located in the heart of Testaccio, the characteristic area of Rome famous for its restaurants and nightlife, but above all of inhabitants, which has maintened the original popular and genuine ‘Romanesco’ spirit.
During the day Testaccio is similar to a country town: market stalls, children playing in the square, dinner in local restaurants.
At night, especially over the weekend, the neighbourhood is lively and full of a variety of events, from live music to theatres and exhibitions.
All this at only 1.7 Kms from the Coliseum!
The building
Our apartment is situated on the 4th floor of a typical end of 19th century building (no lift), from where you can enjoy the view of the the large plane trees in via Galvani. Those trees endows the magic atmosphere of a house in the trees... in the very heart of the city! There are two double rooms and one triple room, all with private bathrooms, aird conditioning, LCD TV, Satellite programmes and free wi-fi. A refrigerator and a microwave oven are also available.
From our b&b you can reach on foot and by public transport most of the monuments of Rome: Pyramid, Testaccio Hill, Aventine, Circus Maximus, Bath of Caracalla, Palatine, Colosseum, Roman Forum and Imperial Fora,Trastevere, Janiculum Hill, Mouth of Truth, Piazza Venezia, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Campo dei Fiori, Castel Sant'Angelo, San Pietro, Piazza del Popolo, Pincio ...............and many many more: Gianni and I are architects and we are happy to suggest you various itineraries full of surprises and fun.
See you there!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have a good day

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Elisa's B&B is absolutely beautiful. The rooms are well designed, super clean, and incredibly well stocked with food, coffee, cooking utensils, and info about Rome. But, the best part about our stay was our fantastic and welcoming host! Elisa went out of her way to give us the best experience we could have in Rome, including restaurant recommendations, day trip ideas, and calling to help us find another place to stay in Rome when we I expectedly had to stay a few days longer over the busy Easter period. I can't recommend her place enough. Testaccio is a beautiful walk from everywhere in Rome, without fellow tourists at your doorstep. Definitely stay here if you want a relaxing and beautiful time!

  • Elisa is a wonderful host, keen to help and with lots of insightful tips. The B&B is such a treat to stay in - new, clean and perfectly laid out. It is in an ideal location, easily accessible to the metro with bus routes nearby. Plus, as Testacio has a more local feel there are plenty of lovely restaurants around if you're keen to avoid the dreaded 'tourist menu' of the central restaurants. Not a problem for me, but it's worth noting there's 4 flights of stairs to climb.

    All you need for a great stay in Rome!

  • I must say we had such a great experience staying in the house on the trees! Everything was so nice, Elisa was the best host ever, helped us in many ways with her kindness, the whole place was very clean and nice, she suggested us places to go, restaurant to visit, even dishes to try! I would recommend anyone to stay at her place. You won't regret it! When I go back to Rome I will definitely stay there again. Thanks a lot

  • It was a real pleasure to stay at this B&B. I have already passed the information along to colleagues at work. The pictures are accurate and Elisa is an absolute pleasure. She spent nearly an hour and a half with us telling us about the neighborhood and Rome in general. She also remained completely accessible throughout our stay. I highly recommend her house.

    Response from Elisa:

    ..... you make me blush more and more ..... THANKS to YOU, the greatest pleasure is mine to share so much JOY and so much PLEASURE and above all to share the magic of meetings and a lot of HUMOR t(phone number hidden)have fun and stay in touch, ciao! Elisa

  • We had a fabulous stay in Rome thanks to Elisa and her B&B! Even before we got to Rome she was always available to answer questions and help us with arrangements (how to get soccer tickets, etc). The B&B itself is located in a great location in Testaccio, about a 3 minute walk to the Metro/Taxi stop. It is also very walkable to Trastevere and the Coleseum area (we walked it with a 15 and 8 yr old many times). The B&B is very very clean and Elisa was always available to answer questions about restaurants, where to go, provide maps, etc.
    The first part of our trip we stayed at one of the most expensive hotels 200ft from the Vatican. Everyone in our family agreed that Elisa's B&B was the BEST place we stayed in Rome. We'd definitely stay there again if we go back to Rome!!!!
