The best thing about staying at Obelus is Carola who run the place. She is so friendly and knows so much about Rome. She shares with you practical information such as how to get around, at what metro stop to get off for different sights, where you can get the best icecream etc.etc. It is easy to feel at home...

Carola and Therese could not have been better hosts on our recent trip to Rome. They are both so friendly and were tremendously helpful to us (and all other guests we noted, including one group who were several hours late arriving one night) with suggestions of sightseeing activities, booking airport transfers, flexibility of breakfast hours etc. We had an air-conditioned...

We had a pleasant 8-night stay at Obelus. The hostess welcomed us with open arms and from then on everything ran smoothly to say the least. The room was spotless clean every single day, the AC worked perfectly, the bathroom was spacious, the breakfast delicious, and it was silent, except for a few barking dogs. We were also very pleased...

We stayed here 3 times over the 4 weeks we were travelling and we can only speak well of our time there especially the care of Theresa and Carola our hostesses. We had arrived after a long trip from Australia via London and our luggage did not arrive with us. We had to leave (for the first time) before it...

After a horrible travel experience, it was a relief to arrive at Obelus Bed and Breakfast. Therese, our hostess, was very welcoming, and even though we arrived 2 hours early, she made sure we were comfortable, offering us a drink, and rushing to make up our room. She then spent the next hour answering questions relating to Rome and the...

My husband and I stayed in the largest bedroom at Obelus, due to the other two rooms being full. It was nice to have so much space to spread out! The bedroom was spotless and fairly comfortable (although the bed was firm - something I think you'd find anywhere in Europe at this price point). The bathroom was also sparkling...

Carola was an excellent hostess, both gracious and helpful. The B&B had three rooms; one was a triple. It was extremely clean and comfortable and was located less than 15 minutes from the Colosseum. I highly recommend this B&B.

We arrived at the Obelus on April 26 and stayed for 3 nights. We couldn't have been more pleased. The location was perfect, near the Metro and bus stops, yet our room was very quiet. The setting is charming, you feel like you're really experiencing a small slice of local life. The inn is small, very clean and extremely well...

Obelus Bed and Breakfast is situated in a great location, just a pleasant walk to the Colosseum and with convenient access to the Metro. There is also a charming and friendly pub just across the street with wonderful music and great drinks! The Obelus has quiet rooms that are spotlessly clean and comfortable. The breakfast was just right with a...

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It truly will feel as though you are staying at your best friend’s home when you are a guest at Obelus B&B located near His Majesty, The Colosseum. The three charming guest rooms have high ceiling and are clean and spacious and neatly furnished. All rooms have private bath rooms with shower, air conditioning, TV and safe box.You will wake up to the aroma of freshly baked croissants which are served every morning in the breakfast area located in the center of the apartment. The continental breakfast includes eggs, cheese, nutella, bread, toast, yogurt, american coffee, cappuccino, juice. So Monika and Pierdavide (the managers) make sure that Guests are given the proper startup for another dream-day in one of the most beautiful cities of the world.This B&B's located within walking distance of the Colosseum and it is the heart of the city. Consider that the Vatican is the farthest of all tourist attractions and it is only 3 kilometers away from Obelus, yet it can be reached with the underground train (the stop is around the block) and it is only 7 stops away (less than 8 minutes!!!) .People visit Rome for a multitude of reasons: the art, culture, food and wines. Relax and feel the magic in the air while walking the wonderful streets of The Eternal City. ... more   less
