About this listing
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.
The B&B is a no smoking facility, but 2 rooms and the kitchen have a balcony, so if you must you can smoke there.
We ask all the guests to keep quiet after 10 pm and early morning.

We also ask to specify the arrival time and to contact us directly in case of delays.
Everything was just as I expected things to be. The room was very clean and the location was close enough to everything yet in a quieter section of Rome.
Davide is a great host and always helpful and having Davide pick us up at the airport made the start of our trip a smooth one.
Thank you for again for helping to make our trip a pleasant one.
Trastevere is THE place to stay in Rome and this room was great. Bed very comfortable, room clean, and A/C worked well. It was nice to have a balcony where we could relax outside.
De locatie van de b&b is perfect. In principe is alles op loop afstand. De kamer is netjes. Wij verbleven er met z'n drieën. Er werd een extra eenpersoonsbed. Op het balkon kan je heerlijk rustig zitten ondanks dat je midden in de wijk Trastevere bent. Iedereen was erg behulpzaam met alle vragen die wij hadden. Een aanrader!
Non potevamo trovare sistemazione migliore. Nel cuore di Trastevere, a pochi passi dal centro storico, ben servita dai mezzi pubblici.
Roma non ti basta mai, ed è per questo che è importante trovare un riferimento affidabile e accogliente, e il B&B Zen lo è grazie soprattutto alla disponibilità, gentilezza e professionalità di Katia e Davide, i proprietari.
I loro preziosi consigli e i cornetti caldi a colazione ;-) hanno reso il nostro soggiorno a Roma ancora più piacevole e indimenticabile.

Hello Shannon, Thank you very much for your Nice review.
About the Window shutter , Unfortunately your check in was to fast and you did not stay enough days for me to remember to tell you how to close the window shutters, there was a Rope on the right side of the window, In order to bring down the shutters You need to pull the rope down, but again I never had the chance to show you, Hope next time.
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.
