We stayed in Rome for 3 nights at the tail end of our 3 week trip in Europe. We were lucky to have booked a few weeks before as David's B&B is very popular. We were certainly not disappointed by the location or the service! As previous reviews suggests David is a great host and extremely helpful. He gave us...

We spent 4 days at this B and B recently and what a lovely place it is. David and his family were extremly helpful and willingly spent time explaining to us what would be best for us to see on our first visit to Rome. We did not pre book any tours and we did not have to queue to...

We selected this bed and breakfast because of the reviews on TripAdvisor, and my husband and I were not disappointed. The room is spacious, updated, and included a refrigerator, a powerful air conditioner (so important in the summer!!), cable television, and free internet. The location is just a few blocks from Vatican City and one block from a Metro Station,...

We booked three nights at David's Gli Scipioni based on previous reviews and we were not disappointed. We were dealing with David prior to our departure and he was very responsive and helpful. Rome was our first stop on a seven week holiday and what a way to start. After a very long flight from Australia (with no sleep) we...

We stayed at Gli Scipioni for a week during our honeymoon - it was perfect! When we arrived, David the owner had left a bottle of champagne in our fridge as a congratulatory gift. Unexpected but a very nice touch! Our room was small, but comfy and had everything we needed. When we returned from exploring the city each afternoon,...

We had 3 nights in Gli Scipioni in mid May prior to a cruise. With 6 people travelling together, we had the whole of the B&B to ourselves. The rooms are very modern with high quality fittings and finishes, very clean and huge by Rome standards. The location is great, being near the Vatican, in an area where there is...

We stayed 4 nights in B&B Gli Scipioni and this place was really perfect for us. When we arrived, the friendly owner (David), showed us the room (we stayed in the orange room), the kitchen and gave us a lot of good information about Rome. The room was very clean, a good bed and plenty of food (and good coffee)...

We decided to book this B&B based on the posts on TA, we weren't disappointed at all! We pre-arranged for the transfer from Ciampino and it went without much fuss. David was at the B&B waiting to welcome us and what a welcome it was. We too received a complimentary bottle of champagne for the same reasons given in the...

Hey guys, Thanks for the fantastic review! Yes I did sort the taxi company out, I chewed them a new one over the telephone!!! Suffice to say we won't be using them again. Unfortunately the concept of customer service does not seem to be prevalent in the Italian psyche. Oh and by the way for anyone who maybe interested, we...

Staying in Prati

Neighbourhood Profile
Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.

“There are three rooms available, but I only saw my room which faced the street. The B&B is on the third floor above the ground level.”

“Three rooms on one floor. Our room was very quiet, and comfortable. Shower is a little "tight" if you are a large person. Great facility!”
