About Flann O'Brien Rooms

Flann ‘O Brien’s offers basic and simple accommodation in an unbeatable central location close to both major public transport facilities, and Rome’s incredible attractions.

Rooms are fairly simple, but feature minibars, satellite TV’s and hairdryers. They are located in two buildings, a short walk from each other.

The hotel has a 24 hour reception, while Wi-Fi is free, and available throughout the property.

The Flann ‘O Brien Restaurant and Pub is located on the ground floor of one of the two buildings housing the rooms. It is described as a unique blend of an Irish pub with the Italian culinary heritage. A basic breakfast is included in the room-rate.

The Spanish Steps, Rome’s social heart, are just 16 minutes’ from Flann ‘O Brien's, while most of Rome’s other central attractions are within similar reach. The Vatican, with St. Peters Basilica and its immense museums, is just 2.2 miles away.

Positive Reviews

Unbeatable central location

Based on guest reviews its central location is by far Flann ‘O Briens principal selling point. It is described as very central, and close both to public transport and Rome's principle sights. Some also added that they were pleasantly surprised by the lack of noise from the streets outside.

Very kind and helpful staff

Very nearly all guests who comment on the attitude of the staff have only good things to say. A lot of guests specifically mention their friendliness, but many also commend them for their abilities to sooth any ruffles.

Unique Irish-Italian fusion restaurant

One of the two locations for the rooms is above a pub/restaurant of the same name. Guests who arrive hungry are certainly pleased to have what they describe as a typical Irish pub serving delicious Italian inspired dishes, right on their doorstep.

Negative Reviews

“Coffee and Croissant” breakfast

While guests mention that a more substantial breakfast could be purchased at the hotel, the included breakfast was not really worth bothering with since it consisted of the proverbial “Cup of Coffee and a Croissant”. Many advise to simply take breakfast at a nearby café.

Very small rooms

Based on guest reviews it seems that the rooms are particularly small. While this wasn't a major issue for most guests, since they spent most off their time out exploring, a minority did feel a bit cramped and boxed in.

Rooms are in two buildings

While most guests didn't really find this to be a big problem, some did point out that there are two locations for rooms - one above the pub, and the other a short walk away. The remote location is described as quieter, but some didn't like not being able to just nip down to reception if they needed to.
