Friendly! Warm! Wonderful! Homey! Convenient!
We stayed with Laura in her beautiful home, along with several other international guests, for 5 nights in March 2012. This inviting B and B is located a good 15 minute walk from Termini Train Station, in a quiet residential neighborhood. Our room and bathroom were beautiful, fresh, clean and spacious. The 12 foot ceilings, with tall windows opening onto a back courtyard, made for a quiet hideaway from the busy, big city traffic.
From the B and B, a two block walk on the Via Manzoni leads you to the red line metro which provides transport to the major tourist attractions – including St. Peter’s and the Vatican, Castel S. Angelo, Villa Borghese, Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. Walking several blocks south you can visit San Giovanni in Laterno and catch a bus to whisk you south to the San Sebastian or San Castillo Catacombs. A ten minute walk west finds you in front of the Colosseum along with the entrances to the Forum and Pallatine Hill. Nearby is Esquilino Park where you can watch men play bocce ball, or visit the important churches of St. Pietro in Vincoli and San Clemente. More importantly, it’s located 2 blocks from the famous Gelato Factory!
Laura helped us plan our daily excursions, answered our questions (in English) and helped us with our limited Italian. She makes the most beautiful cappuccinos, complete with smiley face, and we are absolutely addicted to blood orange juice. We enjoyed spending our breakfasts with young couples from Denmark and Germany, sharing our favorite “don’t miss” sites. Laura also made several restaurant suggestions and helped us with airport transportation at the end of our visit.
We felt so welcome in Laura’s home. We really enjoyed chatting with her and her daughter, Emma (and talking a little Harry Potter and dance ). We would highly recommend this B and B to those preferring warm and cozy accommodations.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Aldebaran b&b, situated in the heaart of Rome, was born in March 2006 in Laura Tiberi's family house. It all started with her imagination, from souvenirs of trips made, and the historical memory to which this place belongs. The idea was to create a unique location, full of charm decorated with warm colors and styles, between the private dwelling and a real and refined hospitality. Breakfast is served in a quiet and bright living room where you can breathe an atmosphere which makes you feel at home but in a mixture of cultures and languages. The homemade bread, the water taken directly from the source, the aroma of our coffee "espresso", a delicious cappuccino, made from a special recipe and other delicacies, make the start of your day a unique moment together with the sympathy of Laura who is always eager to give you valuable information and important tips to discover the beauties and treasures of the Eternal City ... more less
