Positive Reviews

Convenient location near the Vatican

This B&B is noted to be located in a typical Italian neighbourhood. Guests especially like that the block is filled with local restaurants. The fact that public transportation is easily available is also a hit. The Ottaviano Metro Station is said to be just a short distance away, and a bus stop around the corner. Through these means, travellers find theycan easily access the Vatican City and other attractions.

Clean and spacious rooms

Reviewers speak highly about the rooms. They say the accommodations are exceptionally comfortable and the rooms are quite big. The-en suite bathrooms are also said to be spotlessly clean and surprisingly spacious.

Lots of food choices for breakfast

Guests value the good food selections for the breakfast meal. The well-stocked kitchen is provided with pastries, yoghurts, and different fruits to choose from. They also appreciate that they can freely use the communal kitchen for preparing their own snacks and drinks.

Negative Reviews

Noise issues

Travellers complain that the bars and cafes nearby tend to be noisy at night. Since the property’s soundproofing is regarded as poor, these disturbances can be heard inside the rooms, even when the windows are closed.

Ineffective air conditioning units

Guests report that the air conditioning units in some of the rooms are ineffective. The feeling s that they are not powerful enough to properly cool the rooms, especially during summer when the weather is so hot.
