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. They gave us great assistance in locating restaurants, bust stops and suggestions for things to see and do that were close by. The room...

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...

Great experience! Will stay here again when I return to Rome. The Internet service was spotty and it was hard to stay connected, but this wasn't owners fault. They tried everything they could to fix problem.
