“The location was perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2011

Excellent location for all that Rome has to offer. The owners were very gracious and helpful. The room was ample size, very clean. The bed was comfortable. A big window to let in some cool breeze. Wi-fi signal good in our room. The building is located very near many restaurants and ancient sites, yet it is on a quiet street. Nearby there is a park, good for jogging and walking. Very highly recommended! We will be booking here again on our return visit to Rome. Thank you!
A modest breakfast in a nearby building.

This B&B has it all:
- super service, and very friendly and helpful staff
- good location: at the quiet side of the colosseum, in a good neighbourhood with two very good restaurants around the corner
- clean rooms with free internet (desktop computer in every room + wifi available) and fridge
- very good accessibility by various methods of public transport
We would certainly recommend the Guest House Arena to everyone looking for a good place to stay in Rome!

Stayed here for three nights on a recent excursion to Rome. The location is on a quiet side street barely two blocks from the Colosseum. The room was basic, but clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful in recommending restaurants, describing bus routes, and other useful information about sights in the city. The wi-fi connected computer in the room was very handy to have and a unique feature. Would definitely stay here again.

My friend and I stayed at the Arena for 5 nights in September. The room was very basic, just beds, a desk and chair and a TV (no english channels) but with the welcome addition of a computer with internet access. The bathroom was tiny but contained everything we needed and the shower was good. There was air conditioning too which was welcome as it was very hot. The proprietors were smashing - we were given a warm welcome and some cold fruit juice, and Vincent gave us a map on which he drew all the local bus routes and told us how long it would take to walk anywhere. Whenever we saw Vincent or Barbara we were greeted warmly and made to feel at home. We were also given vouchers to exchange for a light breakfast locally, but we did not use them as we were always too keen to start out sightseeing! There is a kettle in the room for making drinks. Without doubt the main reason to stay here is the location - 2 mins walk from the Colosseum, 15 mins walk from Piazza Venezia in the centre of the city, it was such a thrill each morning to turn the corner and see the Colosseum looming over us. If you just want a reasonably priced basic base for sightseeing and don't intend to spend much time in your room, I would recommend the Arena, and I would stay here again myself.

This had everything we were looking for. It was in a perfect location, on a very nice street, very close to the colosseum. There were a lot of nice restaurants and cafes very close by. The rooms were simple, but had everything we needed. It was quiet at night and the staff was helpful. They did not serve breakfasts in the room but guests were given vouchers to use at cafes down the street. The cafes were nice and we were able to get a coffee and a choice of bakery goods. It was also well air conditioned.
