“Ancient Romance” is a bed and breakfast located in the wonderful, historical and artistic area of the Vatican City, in the hearth of ancient Rome. It is just 50 metres far from San Pietro square and the Vatican Museums. Our B&B has just been renovated and it is situated in a splendid late-19th-century building, in via Ottaviano, on a quiet pedestrian precinct.
The idea that gives life to our project consists in conciliating the luxury elegance of the style with a warm familiar hospitality enriched with all comforts and attentions typical of a four stars hotel. This is the reason why we created three different rooms, each developing a specific literary and artistic theme. Each private bath is conceived in relation to the room style.
“La dolce vita” room draws inspiration from the 1960 famous film directed by Federico Fellini, with Anita Ekberg and Marcello Mastroianni. Its furniture respects the white and black photographic contrasts that sublime the poetry of the “fellinian” cinematographic image. You will suddenly be immersed in the Roman essence of the big Italian economic boom.
This place was run like a b&b. Reception was good on arrival - no issues checking in or checking out - however hosts were more difficult to contact for minor issues or questions during the stay. Location is good, easy walking distance to metro and in proximity to bus stops. Right on the doorstep to the Vatican and 20 minutes walk to Trastevere. Room was decent, well kept and clean.
