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.
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.
Arrived a little later than expected, but David was available for us to check in! He provided directions to arrive that were easy to follow and made our transition for the night comfortable! We weren't sure if we were staying for one or two nights, but David was willing to try and accomodate us either way.....This was very helpful! We didn't end up staying another night, as we were off on another adventure, but enjoyed the location immensely while we were there.....unfortunately our heater wouldn't shut off at some point, and it got a little warm in our room, but hey, things happen! Otherwise, well located and comfortable! David's cousin also arranged a taxi for us last minute, and that helped immensely since our trip took a last minute turn! Thanks again David!
My husband and I stayed a couple of days, and we had a great experience. Davide picked up us at the airport and he was there on time, he gave us a map and show us which are the main places to go, restaurants etc.
The rooms are big and confortable, it has a nice balcony with a table and chairs which it is nice nice and quiet to relax.
His cousin also works there and she is very nice and helpful.
The bedroom and washroom were allways cleaned.
As for the breakfast it was very complete, coffee, juice, fruits, cereals, bread, croissants, crakers, yoghurt etc.
The internet conexion is very good.
The locations is in the heart of Trastevere and you can walk everywhere, it is a charming neighborhood.
I would absolutely reccomment this place !
The rooms were beautiful and comfortable, and we loved the Trastevere neighbourhood. Everyone we met at the B&B was friendly and ready to assist us. Breakfast was good as well. Communication was easy and prompt. Public transportation was just a few steps down the street and it was very easy to get to from the airport. Thanks for a great stay!
Davide and Desiree are charming cousins who take very good care of their visitors. The room was big and in fun bold colors, and the bathroom was always empty when I wanted to use it. Davide was very concerned that I enjoy my stay and had a lot of good ideas about where to go and what to see in Rome, and all of his ideas were right on the money for me. I will definitely stay at Zen Trastevere next time I come to Rome!
