About this listing
If you need more than one room contact (website hidden) Bed & Breakfast is located in the centre of Rome, a short walking distance from Termini train station.
Some of the main sites such as The Coliseum, The Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore and San Giovanni in Laterano to name a few are very easy reached on foot from the B&B. Our elegantly furnished rooms are comfortable and relaxing. All are individually styled and are fully equipped with modern facilities, LCD flat-screen televisions, in-room safety deposit boxes and air conditioning.
The rooms are spacious and are immaculately maintained. Each room has an en-suite bathroom, with shower, heated towel rail and hairdryer. Selected rooms are also furnished with a dining table where guests can eat breakfast in the privacy of their own rooms. Breakfast is also available in the communal area. The continental breakfast consists of jams and spreads, bread w/ toaster available, cereal, milk, prepackaged pastries etc and you may make yourself hot chocolate, tea, or coffee. Breakfast is on a self-service basis so guests can wake up at whatever time desired.
With the central Termini railway station within short walking distance and access to Rome’s metro system and all buses, getting around could not be simpler. The entrance to the underground (Vittorio Emanuele – 1 stop away from Termini Station) is very close to the B&B .
The B&B is set on the first floor of a building on Via Conte Verde. The upper floor is accessible by elevator for those with heavy luggage.
Guests may be greeted by a member of my staff instead of me upon check-in.

When we arrived at the BnB, a colleague of Federica, Rafik, welcomed us. He was very kind and unfortunately had to tell us that the room could not be used because something was damaged. Luckily he gave us another room, only 100 metres apart, directly located at a metro station. This room was even larger and also very comfortable. Everything was there, a cozy bed, a clean bathroom with a german-standard toilet (couldn't find it often in Italy), a kitchen and even a gallery over the kitchen with a 3rd bed.
These rooms are located near to metro station Vittorio Emmanuele, from where you can get to the important touristic sites in a few minutes by metro. There are a lot of good restaurants and pasticcerias near to the rooms.
The only disadvantage could be that Rafik and Federica don't speak English very good. Luckily my girlfriend speaks Italian so we didn't have a communication problem.
When I will go to Rome once more, I would book this room again :)
The rooms were cute, and very well located. Our main complaint is the air conditioner, which made very loud cracking noises throughout the night and prevented us from getting good rest. Make sure you communicate with the hostess to let her know when you plan on arriving- we failed to do so and had to wait around for a while until someone could come answer the door. There is not a 24-hour reception desk.
This place was a little disappointing. The rooms are not as nice as described. They also don't have all of the amenities listed. For example my room did not have a safe or a working hair dryer. There are 5 rooms, and they are not all like the rooms in the pictures. If you see a picture of a room that you like, you have a 1 in 5 chance of getting that room. Also, the rooms are very noisy. You will hear everything that happens in the rooms near you and the common rooms.
As far as location goes, it is a little inaccurate to say that it is in the heart of Rome. It is a long walk to main attractions (20-30 minutes) and there are no attractions, coffee shops, gelaterias anywhere near you. There is a restaurant next door that is ok if you are pretty hungry and don't want to wait to go into town.
The nearby sea is a little grimy. I felt unsafe at first, but after a couple days I figured out which streets to walk on and which to avoid.
For what it's worth, we returned to Rome a week later and found a studio on the Spanish steps that is much nicer, more private, and actually in the heart of Rome. It is the same price. I suggest that you shop around and avoid this place.
This is a nice place roughly 15 minutes walk from the train station. Room was clean and interestingly decorated. Hostess was very nice but did not speak any English. There are not too many places nearby until you start walking at least 10 minutes towards the train station.
Place was small, exposed electrical wiring in the bathroom was a worry and temperature on the a/c set to 30 degrees on a 30 degree day wasn't pleasant to walk in to. The neighbourhood is less than desirable (physical altercation with a pick pocket) and wifi is very difficult to come across. Can't comment much past that because we didn't stay long enough to experience any further (illness).
Federica was pleasant, however, person who meets you at check in speaks no English and doesn't understand broken Italian (even phrases from a recognised phrase book were misconstrued).
My husband and I wouldn't recommend Federica's B&B for a number of reasons. Before I booked this B& B I was assured by Federica that there was a fridge for us to use. We arrived to find a freezer that was a solid block of ice and hence the fridge door wouldn't close and nothing stayed cold. There was nothing fresh for breakfast and although bread was supplied there wasn't a toaster to use, the percolator coffee ran out on our 2nd day and wasn't replenished and the tea bags supplied were all fruit ones and I happen to like just plain tea for breakfast. The keys supplied were very poor Quality and our front door key broke off on the first night - there were several other broken keys on the reception desk. There was a TV but we weren't able to get an English channel and we were told that they had trouble with the system.
On a positive note - the linen was clean and the B&B is very close to the Termini train station. The restaurant down stairs was awesome and we ate there for the 3 nights we were in Rome - the waiter, Guiseppi spoke great English and had a really pleasant and helpful manner.
