We stayed at the beginning of May. The location to Trastavere for food, St Peters and various other attractions were all in walking distance. The room was great, as were the facilities for the price. We were welcomed on arrival, could store our bags on the last day and had no problems at all during the stay

This place is great for anyone visiting the Vatican. It is only a 5 to 10 minute walk from the Vatican. The owner and her assistant both speak great English and are super helpful and friendly.

The room was very clean and nice. The walls between the three bedrooms were a little thin. Be aware that the owners are in another building across the street. There's no "front desk" or a person on duty all the time. You communicate with the owners via email to set up when you are arriving. The B&B itself is in...

Great little B&B right outside of St. Peter's square. A little further from most other tourist hot spots but easy to get to. Very close to shops and restaurants. My only complaint is that opening and closing the doors in the building is NOISY and some of the locks were tricky. But the proprietors were extremely kind and helpful and...
