“Perfect!”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

Fell in love with Peace of Rome as soon as we set foot through the amazing old doors into the cool internal courtyard with it's pots of plants - a perfect oasis coming in from the hot street. We have been home for a week now but In my heart I am still there!

We were met at the airport by a driver in his very smart Mercedes and had a very comfortable drive through very interesting scenery (a much more pleasant journey than our return to the airport by Metro and bus which was much less scenic - do treat yourself to being driven if you can). On arrival at the B & B, Filippo came bouncing down the stairs to welcome us, picked up both our suitcases as if they were featherweights and led us upstairs. He, very amusingly, went on to give us lots of hints, tips and ideas on how to get the best out of our 3 day stay before showing us to our room which was well furnished, extremely clean and, best of all, overlooked the courtyard. We had room 6 which, although probably not one of the bigger rooms, suited us very well.

Speaking of rooms, as mentioned by everyone else, you can leave your bags here after check out to let you explore before your flight with your hands free but, not only that, there is a very useful "spare" bathroom where you can freshen up. This is also a good place to put your make up on, ladies, as it is brightly lit and completely covered in mirrors - the lighting in your room might be a little more gentle.

The next day we met Simona and Daniele who were both delightful and, again, very helpful. We almost felt we knew them before we met as we had been in contact by email during the booking process and also from reading all the other reviews!

If you are visiting Rome for the first time, you really can't go wrong with Peace of Rome. Everyone who works there (too friendly to be called "staff"!) is passionate about giving you the best possible experience. Not only that, it really is very well placed for all the sites that you are going to manage to squash into your visit and, when your feet finally give up on you, it is very convenient for 2 Metro stations too. (By the way The Metro only costs 1euro for 75 minutes travel - amazing compared to London Underground!) .... oh and the shops nearby ... and the great cafe/bakery/deli where you can have breakfast .... cappucino and lovely pastry for 2 euros (again compare with London!).

During early summer and autumn Friday evenings, you can book a special entrance to the Vatican Museums. Book online at the Vatican before you travel. Really recommend this as, if you book to go in at 7.00 p.m. you can walk to the very end (if you can manage to go past all the other attractions without looking!) to visit the Sistine Chapel before anyone else gets there. Being practically alone in this wonderful room was a huge treat. We came back again later having visited the Raphael Rooms etc and, although much busier, the Chapel was still probably not so packed as on a usual daily visit. Also, don't forget the modern collections. We were amazed to come across Rodin's "Thinker" and a whole room of Matisse - Salvadore Dali is there, Georges Braque, Le Corbusier, etc ... There are obviously far more delights than you can see in a month of Sundays but these were things that we hadn't expected.

This is kinda obvious but one tip for fellow British travellers - "when in Rome, do as the Romans do"! Simona v kindly made us a reservation at Pizzeria Ragno-Doro for when we came out of the Vatican Museums. When we arrived at 9.30 p.m. it was absolutely packed and all the staff were dashing around, serving and moving tables etc We stood politely by the door for 10 minutes or so but no-one so much as looked at us, never mind come to say hello. So we left (feeling a bit disgruntled that we'd not had something to eat in the garden back at the Vatican with it's magical view of St Peters peeping over an umbrella pine illuminated in the sky like a jewel - something else you could try). However, when we spoke to Simona the next day, she explained that, in Rome, if you have a reservation you are expected not to stand by the door, but to go in, find someone - even tho they are busy - and say you have a reservation! Be assertive!

However, we did have a wonderful last meal - Sunday lunch at La Scala in Trastevere, which was another of Simona's recommendations and we would heartily recommend eating there.

Do feel confident to stay here on your visit to Rome. You will be very well looked after. You are even given a card with Daniele and Livios' mobile numbers so that you always know you have an ally if you get into trouble!

We would love to return to Rome as you can only scratch the surface of all the delights there in a short stay. However, we have to go to Venice, next .... I wonder if we could persuade Daniele and Livio to open a B & B there ...?!!

We started and ended our trip to Italy with A Peace of Rome, it was perfect. Daniele & Simona were very helpful with recommendations and directions. They had us laughing every time we interacted. Location was only a few blocks from the Metro and we felt extremely safe walking around at all hours.

I don't really have anything negative to say on this review. It was a GREAT place. Daniele & Simona are absolutely wonderful hosts. They were always available and very helpful in directing us to all the best places to see and eat in Rome. We only had a couple of days to explore Rome so their advice was invaluable! I know that our experience in Rome wouldn't have been nearly as rich if it weren't for their expert guidance.

As for the rooms and location...the rooms are all clean and pretty spacious, for Italy. The location is perfectly located for a quick hop on the Metro or a walk to the Vatican. Everything you need is right around the corner...from a grocery store to great places to shop. Go eat at Vito's restaraunt (recommended by Daniele)...it was delightful!

We also took advantage of the pick up service from the airport...I highly recommend that! After an 8 hour flight (and 7 hour time difference)...we were more than ready to just let someone haul our luggage and drive us to our next destination. Worth the money!

A Peace of Rome was exactly what the reviews said it was. Excellent service and information was provided by Simona, the room was fine and in an extremely quiet area. The neighborhood was upscale and good location for the metro and the Vatican. However, for a B7B it needs to work on its brealfast which they may be elimnating as part of the room rate. Breakfast for us was a voucher to a nic eplace across the street and consisted only of coffee and a croissant. The smallest breakfast of five places we stayed in Italy on this trip. It is recommended by us.

I had never been to Italy before. Our first stop was in Rome and we (my husband and our 3 year old son) stayed for two nights at A Peace of Rome. I could not be happier!!! I chose this place based on previous Trip Advisor reviews -- so thank you to all those who contributed!! Everything that is said about this place and the wonderful hosts, Daniele & Simona, are true! They went out of their way to make our stay wonderful and we had some challenges (lost luggage, stolen cell phone). They went above and beyond what I would expect and I thank them so much for that. They give so much advice on where to eat and how to get around Rome. I loved our room which had a bed for us and one for our child. It was a big room and the bathroom/shower was great. I also loved the neighborhood. My husband was not feeling the best the first two days in Rome and yet my son and I felt very safe walking around the neighborhood. I also loved the corner bakery/restaurant where Simona and Daniele give vouchers for breakfast. I also appreciate that they can arrange for a chauffeur to pick you up at the airport and take you back at a cost that is not much more than if you take a taxi. We stayed at their other hotel called A Taste of Rome on our last night in Italy. That room was also amazing and the location is more convenient to taking the bus and metro. However I have to say that overall I liked A Peace of Rome better for the neighborhood feel. But you cannot go wrong if you are going to stay with Daniele and Simona!!! Also...our son absolutely loved the elevator in the building!!
