When deciding on our Rome B&B we were keen to find somewhere away from the centre of town where it would be quieter and less touristy. Alderbaran was perfect for this; in a quiet side street but still only 5 mins walk to the Metro and 15 min walk to the Colleseum.
We were greeted warmly by Laura (and Rumba the dog..) who immediately sat us down to explain the area, buses, what to see etc. Each morning Laura was extremely helpful, even ringing to try and book Villa Borghese museum tickets.
Our room was spacious with a large comfy bed, a big bathroom with a good shower and a nice view out to the street. Breakfast each morning consisted of warm croissant, toast with jams or cheese, eggs and sometimes cake (Laura even let us take some of her delicious chocolate cake away with us to Florence). It goes without saying that the coffee was excellent, and my girlfriend was happy be able to have decaf coffee too.
Laura recommended several restaurants nearby; "Taverna Romana" and "Trattoria Antica Hostaria da Angelino" being the best. Both provided superb food (we went to the latter twice..) at very good prices, with the majority of diners being Italian, so we felt like we got the real local experience. Make sure you also go to the Gelataria just round the corner, the ice cream was sublime!
We had a great start to our holiday in Italy here and would highly recommend Alderbaran for anyone wanting to get a true feel for life in Rome.
- 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
