Davide, Desirèe and Katia welcome you to their two B&B accommodations Zen and Zoe, the fruit of an original idea conceived of by Davide just a few years ago when he came back to live in his beloved Roma. Following what has become quite the trend over the last few years, and using his own extensive travel experiences, he decided to open the B&B Zen Trastevere in March of 2011. He chose Trastevere because it is the magical neighborhood in which he spent his adolescent years. Although this neighborhood has changed drastically over the past 20 years, you can still experience the original feeling of Romanesque life here. Since its original opening, the B&B has grown to include a second structure B&B Zoe. Together, the two B&B's have developed into just the right place for your Roman holiday. Detailed attention has been given to each room and common area so as to offer guests a comfortable stay in a colorful and carefree environment. B&B Zen and Zoe are a little peaceful oasis right in the middle of the Eternal City where clients can enjoy an amazing location and can feel at ease. The staff is readily available during the day to help with any problem, and are happy to offer information regarding everything you need to know about Rome or to suggest what to visit in Rome and where to eat in the heart of Trastevere, making your vacation unforgettable.
The B&B's are located right on the main road Viale Trastevere, situated within a quiet and peaceful courtyard far from the hustle and bustle.
Each apartment has two double rooms with private bathrooms, air conditioning, free WIFI Internet connection 24 hours a day, hairdryer and TV. The rooms are furnished with care and elegance, with colors that make them welcoming and relaxing.
Room prices include a hearty breakfast which is served in the kitchen of each apartment.
The accommodation is well-connected by public transport (Tram, Bus) to all main attractions and facilities in the center of Rome.
Moreover, the following historical and artistic areas are easy to reach on foot: Tiberina Island, the historical ghetto, Teatro Marcello, Largo Argentina, the Vittoriano, the mouth of the truth, the Roman Forum and Colosseum, the Gianicolo scenic walk, Campo de' Fiori, Piazza Navona, Trilussa, the Pantheon and the Porta Portese flea market.
Davide was a fantastic host and the location was ideal for Rome. We were able to communicate nicely with Davide. He provided us with nice ideas for food and ways to avoid large crowds at the monuments and hot spots. Davide also graciously gave us a ride to the airport after our four days in Rome. A wonderful and delicious place to eat recommended by our host was Marco G. Don't miss the Panna cotta. YUM! We had a shared bathroom which is not my preference but all rooms should have their own bathroom soon. I gave four stars because the bathroom situation but the host is a 5!
My daughter and I loved Davide's place and it's location in Rome. Davide was there to greet us when we first arrived and was very friendly!! He provided us with maps and lists of places to eat and other helpful advice. The room was spacious and very clean. The bathroom is separate and across the hall. With Rome being so hot, the air conditioning was so appreciated!!! We loved, loved, loved the location. Trastevere was the perfect location to stay in Rome. It is easy to walk to everything and there is also transportation right outside the door. We definitely recommend Davide's place.
Davide was a welcoming host and he was very kind, helpful and truly went above and beyond. He guided us to his favorite local restaurants, destinations and tips on getting around Rome. The apartment was perfectly clean, spacious, well furnished and the bed was comfortable. We will absolutely stay with Davide next time we are in Rome.
Massimo and the rest of his staff were terrific. The B&B is an apartment within a modernist building in a great location. The rooms were immaculate and comfortable. There was a breakfast kitchen, which was great, so you could make whatever you wanted from the selections and take it to your room or terrace and eat in private with less time-constraints than most hotels and B&B's. This was a great thing for me cause I don't always feel like socializing in a breakfast room with strangers -- at least not until I'm wide awake. I will stay there again!
It is a nice place central in Rome. Thay lent us a bed to our babyboy so we could sleep alone in the bed. The host was very helpful with telling us whitck bus and tram we should take to visit different places.
We (two adults and a four-year-old) stayed at the B&B Zen for just one night, before catching our flight back home after two weeks in Italy. We were more than happy with our room. Clean, spacious, nicely decorated and comfortable - and with highly functioning WiFi (a rare commodity in Italy). One of Davides colleagues helped us check in, and he was very helpful and friendly, giving us restaurant tips in the area.
Our part of the B&B was a small flat, with a very tidy bathroom, a self-service kitchen and one more guestroom. Our room had a little terrass where we had our breakfast, very nice! It was very conveniently located, just a few bus/tram stops from central Rome, and five stops from Trastevere station, where we could take a direct train (20 mins) to Fuimicino airport for only six euro per person (Davide told us about it when we were checking out) We will definitely stay here again the next time we're in Rome.
What a great base to explore Rome!
We had a brilliant stay at Zen Trastevere, the place is within easy reach to Rome's city centre, the room felt like home and David & co are very helpful hosts.
All in all a 5 star experience :)
This a great place to stay. Central, friendly, clean. Davide was a wonderful host who was helpful and very informative about great places to visit and eat. Rome is a hectic place but we felt calm and relaxed a soon as we got to our room at the B&B. Grazie Davide!
Prima verblijf in Zen Trastevere; schone grote kamer, prima badkamertje( je moet niet te dik zijn!) Rustig . Vriendelijke crew en eenvoudig goed ontbijt. Het voelde als een hotel.
Tout était parfait dans la chambre et l'appartement: accueil sympathique, literie confortable, propreté, équipements, ...
Effectivement du bruit par moment venant de l'extérieur ou des voisins du dessus (rien de gênant si on ne se lève pas trop tard).
Très bien situé, le centre ville est accessible à pied très rapidement.
J'y retournerais sans hésitation et le conseillerai.
