Ciao sono Mattia, amo il calcio la fotografia, pratico surf e lavoro come fotografo per una rivista specializzata.
The B&B is absolutely clean and fancy, bed is bed enough for 2-3 people. Breakfast is decent. Landlady is quite patient and caring, even got us tickets for the Pope audience. She does not speak any English though, so that might be frustrating sometimes. On top of that, many house rules are applied. Even though the stay was fine, we wasn't completely at ease or felt at home though, unlike the other free-spirited airbnb experience I had.
Extremely clean and nice B&B! Very nice rooms, adequate breakfast, the last morning we were offered great homemade cake!
The location is very central (2 minutes walk to Metro, 5 minutes to saint Peter), and the neighborhood very safe. Make sure to know basic Italian phrases, for better contact with the lady.
We had a lovely and relaxing time at Gelsominas B&B, staying for 3 nights. The rooms were quiet and the place was spottless. Gelsomina was happy to make our visit as comfortable as possible with a nice personal touch. At breakfast she invited us to taste from her homemade cake. The location is very good if you like to be close to the vatican and there are plenty of good restaurants close by. I'd go back there anytime.
The accommodation is very central, easy to reach from the airport and in a nice street with a lot of shopping possibilities. The B&B is in a homely and calm appartment. My boyfried and I had a cleanly and tastefully furnished room. We used a bathrood with shower which is on the floor. The breakfast includes coffee, tea or juice and white bread as well as packaged rusk, jam, nuggat spread and butter.
The Vatican City and the museum is just a 15 minutes walk away from the B&B. You can achieve a lot of interesting spots from this place.
Basically we were happy to stay at Gelsomina especilally because we booked the room for a short term. So we are thanksfull to find this option. What made the stay a little bit difficult was the fact that the grandmother of Mattia Stocchi lead the B&B who steaks and understands no english.
The communication was unfortunatly not that good for us who have no italian language knowledges. If we would expect it we could take a dictionary with us. So we were able to just about communicate with "hands and feed". Another akward point was that the privacy was limited because the host has her own clothes in our room and so she sometimes came inside to grab something out of the closet. Therebuy and due to the communication difficulties we unfortunatly felt poorly.
The grandmother is a lovely lady which tried to afford us a good stay. For native speaker and visiters with italian knowledges we are sure this B&B would be a good place to stay.
