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.
Check out is at 11 Am, check in is after 1 pm but if you arrive Earlier and the room is available you can check in right away or you can leave the bags till the room is ready.
We also ask to specify the arrival time and to contact us directly in case of delays.
Lovely room and great location.
We had 4 good nights in the purple room at the Zen B&B in Trastevere.
Davide and staff are very kind and helpfull and had good recomendations on what to do and see in Rome. It is very close to but not in the heart of the Trastevere nightlife, which we found perfect.
The rooms are not exactly soundproof - you hear most of what goes on around you, but to us this was not a problem at all. House policy clearly stress that guests must be quiet after 11 pm which people respected.
The room has a nice balcony with afternoon sun perfect for snacks and wine before going out.
We will be using Zen b&B again when in Rome.
Sofie and Jens
Un très bon séjour ! nous sommes restées 4 jours.
Davide est très accueillant et son service de voiturage est parfait : quand il est venu nous chercher en voiture à l'aéroport de Fumiciano pour nous amener au bnb, notre avion est arrivé avec 20 minutes de retard, nous n'avons pas pu le prévenir mais il était bien là à nous attendre !
La chambre est grande, propre, avec une jolie décoration. Le petit balcon donne sur la terrasse d'en dessous, avec un petit jardin et des arbres, c'est charmant, surtout pour prendre le petit déjeuner le matin !! Le grand lit est vraiment très confortable, le petit lit a un matelas moins épais mais ça va.
Le petit déjeuner est consistant : céréales, lait, yaourt, patisseries, pommes, bananes, nutella, confiture, toasts, café, jus d'orange, bref, de quoi se faire un vrai petit déjeuner avant d'aller visiter Rome !
Excellent location, a comfy bed and a friendly host! We stayed 4 nights at B&B Zen and it was an enjoyable experience. Davide was very accommodating when we requested a late night check-in and he went one step further when he found out we were in Rome and had nothing booked, without all his help our experience would've been completely different
The place is clean and tidy, the small breakfast offered is good to kick start the day and if you feel like having something fancier just go around the corner and there is plenty of options.
The entrance to the B&B is not what you expect but once in you get what you were promised. Desiree (Davide's Cousin) runs the place and even had the nice detail of giving us nice fresh towels for our last day
b&b tres bien situé dans le quartier du Transtévère toujours animé.
L'accueil est très agréable et la vaste chambre est aussi rose que confortable.
J'y retournerai sans hésiter
Davide was a great host during our trip. Because of his recommandation we ate the best spaghetti Carbonara ever... The appartment was very clean. We also embraced his offer to collect us at the airport, he was in time and it was very uncomplicated.
I had a very good experience staying at Zen Trastevere. Check-in was smooth. Davide is a great host. I stayed in Purple room, which is spacious and quiet. It has shared bathroom, yet it did not bring any inconvenience. Location itself is perfect to explore Rome on foot, grocery store nearby, and huge park-natural preserve if you feel like going for a run. I'd stay again.
Davide's B&B is in the perfect location and is spacious with wonderful heat and hot water for colder winter mornings. We stayed in late February and it was a dream. I would definitely recommend and would happily stay again, next time in Rome.
