This is a true B&B! There are only 2 rooms, and they were carved out of the owner/hostess's rather large Rome apartment. The building was built in the early 20's and has a large private courtyard. The star of this property is the owner!
The B&B "For My Friends" is located in downtown Rome, in the Prati district, just three minutes walk from the subway stop: A Line, Ottaviano-San Pietro-Vatican Museums. Its location is great, it is perfect to visit Rome walking. The public transports (they are always available, even at night) are behind the corner of the home. The building has a beautiful private garden, the lift and the porter. The ancient apartment, very quiet, has been recently restored and it is composed by 2 bedrooms (each is provided of its private bath) and one big lounge where you can relax and have breakfast. The "Sun room" is a double bedroom with a king size bed and bath en-suite. The "Starfish suite" is a triple -quadruple Bedroom on two level and it has two king size beds. Each bath is provided with towels, soap, fon and all you need. the decor is very well cared. Antiques and modern forniture there are. The precious chandeliers are made in Murano glass (off pieces - Venice). Saint Peter Square is 8 mins walk from B&B. The Vatican Museums are 5 mins walk from home. The neighborhood is residential: quiet but lively, dynamic and interesting, full of bars and restaurants, trattorias and pizzerias, pubs, wine bars, ethnic Roman or Italian, thus giving wide choice and meet all your needs of taste and pocket. If you need, I'll be also happy to give you some tips and suggestions about places to visit, where to eat and what to do in the area. The minimum stay is two nights.

A lovely place in an excellent location. Clean, well-furnished. Matilde was so nice. Breakfast was delicious. Very satisfying stay. Thank you Matilde!
Matilde is a great host, we stay two night in her apartment, she was with us in the apartment during our arrival, check out and every morning preparing breakfast for us, she give us lots of advise and recommendation for our itinerary, and the breakfast was great too!
I have to give a credit to the living room which was so lovely and comfortable, can compare with the suite of any five star hotel :), another credit was given to its location, the metro was located jut around the corner and only 10mins walk to Vatican
Matilde is a prefect host, we had stay 3 nights in her place, where in a great location and quite neighborhood with good privacy.She's well prepared everything that we need in Rome:a detail map,Rome pass,great ice cream and a lot of nice restaurants information near her place. which we had tried and enjoyed it. She also provide a lot of choices for breakfast, it make us feel at home.Her place is very pleasant and artistic,Matilde is very warm and mild person,we love to go back again.
Its my first time to use Airbnb and it turns out a great experience with our lovely hostess Matilde. The flat locate in central Vantican and the Museum is within walking distance. The flat was really clear and feels like home. My wife is really fussy about bathroom and she is really satisfied with Matilde's bathroom.
As for the host, Matilde is a great lady who gave us lot advice on where to eat and even helped us with our other stay in Florence. The breakfast was great, everything were fresh and good quality.
I really enjoyed our stay and will not hesitate recommend to our friend.
My friend and I had such a wonderful time in Rome. We owe much of our amazing trip to our wonderful hostess. Immediately upon arrival, Matilda treated my friend and I as if we were old friends. We were made to feel right at home. She made us a lovely breakfast every morning and chatted with us about things to do and places to go all around the city. She even made several reservations for us and allowed us to use her computer. The apartment and room were perfect accommodations, beautifully decorated and comfortable for two.
We really enjoyed our stay in Rome. Matilde is a great host, helful and friendly. All the rooms are clean and equipped with all amenities.
The apartement is well located, just some minutes to the next metro-station "Ottaviano" and the Vatican. Bars, restaurants and shops of daily living are around the corner.
We really can recommend this accommodation and would come back anytime. Thanks Matilde.
Der Aufenthalt bei Matilde war einfach klasse und hat unseren Aufenthalt sehr bereichert. Die Zimmer sind sehr gepflegt und lassen keine Wünsche offen. Matilde ist sehr zuvorkommend, hilfsbereit und auf das Wohl ihrer Gäste bedacht. Ein tolles, sehr umfangreiches Frühstück gehört zu ihrem Service. Das Appartement ist nahezu perfekt gelegen. Die Metro-Station "Ottaviano" ist nur 5 Gehminuten entfernt und der Vatikan kann bequem in 15min erreicht werden. Die umliegenden Straßen sind gesäumt von zahlreichen Restaurants, Bars und Geschäften des täglichen Lebens. Diese Unterkunft kann ohne Einschränkungen empfohlen werden, wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen. Danke Matilde.
Absolutely wonderful place to stay! Very well kept and clean. Exactly what we hoped for during our time in Rome. Very helpful to be located so close to the Vatican and the metro. Matilde was extremely considerate - offering suggestions and assistance; flexible - with our arrival, breakfast time, and departure; and helpful during our stay - keeping the lines of communication open. Loved her recommendations for restaurants. Next trip to Rome, we will definitely return to Matilde's place.
