Room Loren is our quietest room because it gives onto Villa Sciarra (a small public park) and nearby gardens. It features a small private en-suite bathroom with shower, and a flat screen TV
The Bed & Breakfast IL BOOM is in a large apartment (where owners’ family lives) located on the attic floor and penthouse of an early 20th-century building, without lift/elevator, offering a breathtaking view over Rome.
Up to 2005 this apartment has been just our home. We restored it with our taste and passion for the three decades (fifthies, sixthies, seventhies) when Rome and Italy made progress and opened up to the world and culture.
We tried to save what we could (vintage floors, ceilings, doors, full-lenght window), and mantain the roman atmosphere of our place.
One of the unique feature of our apartment are the two splendid terraces, equipped with deck-chairs and umbrellas, where guests can sunbathe and enjoy the romantic atmosphere of the Eternal City.
On-site amenities furthermore include a comfortable lounge/kitchen, a PC with internet access, and wireless Internet access throughout the apartment.
The Bed and Breakfast IL BOOM enjoys an excellent position in the heart of Rome, on the legendary Gianicolo Hill, along a beautiful tree-lined avenue in the charming Trastevere district, one of the city's most ancient and picturesque neighbourhoods.
We are located in a quiet and secluded residential area, at a few minutes walking from the most important artistic, archeological, cultural sites of the city.
Vatican City is just accross Gianicolo Hill (half an hour walking through Fontanone - a monumental fountain - and Piazza Garibaldi - the most beautiful view of the city. Campo de Fiori, Piazza Farnese, Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Tiber Island, Campidoglio, all the historical center is just under our place.
Restaurants, pizzerie, bars, pubs, any kind of shops are at five minutes walking
And we have also very efficient and close public transportation (daily and nightly): Bus (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN), H; tram 8

I'm an "old" roman guy who loves to live in Roma, and in Trastevere, one of the most ancient "rione" or area in the city.
We (my 22yo son and I) live in the same very large and beautiful apartment where we have our B&B activity since 2006.
I'm a former Top Manager of an american company, and have a lot of interests.
My passion for life, culture, music, literature, movies, design in 50's, 60's, 70's is evident just looking at the pictures of our home and our B & B. And yet a Master category swimmer, and I train at least four times a week, and do national and international competitions with my team.
I love animals, and we have three cats (Ciccio, Sancho and Felice - they are not in B&B night area, but you can meet them in our guest dining/kitchen room, and in our terraces).
In one of our terraces (overlooking Roma) also live six turtles. For often, Amelie, the boxer puppy for my son and his girlfriend, she is with us.
I love Roma, and I'm happy when my guests want to know more then usual things to see in our city. And in addition to my help to visit museums, ancient ruins, exhibitions, and all the historical center of the city, I can advise you about what's going in Rome, where you can spend your time (restaurants, pizzerie, bars, pubs, music places, theaters).
