“Great Place, great service”
Reviewed 12 November 2011

Wow, what a great place! We stayed at this place in September 2011. Great location, walk to Vatican in 2 min. Walk to all the transportation just minutes away. Very private.
Rooms are very clean, and nice size. Service is very friendly. They take care of you at any time of the day. We lost our luggage, friendly stuff helped us to speak to airline multiple times.
Would recommend this place.

Room Tip: We traveled with a baby, and they were able to put a crib in the room. Inform them in advance,

We had a really comfortable room, the staff was really nice and very helpful. The room was everything we could have asked for in a B&B, close the the Vatican (only two blocks away) and the Metro (Just outside the door!!!) ....WOW THAT WAS A HUGE BONUS! Massimo was really helpful and very friendly and having FREE WIFI was really nice. Thanks to Massimo and Michelle. Thanks for making our honeymoon great!

Would recommend and would certainly return!

Absolutely wonderful. Excellent location and the price is not too bad either. Their suite is cozy and has a nice setting. I would certainly book here upon my next trip. Highly recommend the place.

The best choice we made in our Italian holiday. Staff were fantastic, especially Massimo , booking process with Michelle was excellent as we had to book an extra room for an additional family member. Nothing was too much trouble. Metro practically at the door, Vatican around the corner and St Peter's a block away. Clean Quite at night, and free wi-fi and pc access with printer. Excellent value and service. I wish I had booked it for our last 4 nights in Rome for which we stayed at a disastrous 4 star establishment (not!). I will go back to Ancient Romance in a heartbeat. Thank you all at this wonderful B&B.

I stayed at this B&B for 3 nights in August with my 2 year old daughter, mother-in-law and husband. I have never stayed in a B&B before so I was somewhat unsure of what to expect.

The location really could not be more convenient. It's located a block away from the Vatican and walking distance to all the major tourist sites. We were able to walk from the hotel to see Piazza Navona, the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon , the neighboourhood of Trastevere and many other famous sites. The neighbourhood the B&b is located in is also very nice and filled with lovely shops , good restaurants, gelaterias and your fair share of tourist traps.

The rooms were as pictured on the hotel website. I am particulary sensitive to dirty or musty rooms and bathrooms but I found the room and bathroom to be spotlessly clean. We stayed in the Dolce Vita and La Divinia Comedia which are located one floor up from the reception area. The rooms were simple but nicely decorated and both included a mini fridge which proved very helpful. The windows were sound-proof so there was no noise from the busy street below. The rooms are also beside each other on one side of a little lobby area. This was perfect for us as it gave us a sense of privacy from the other guests. I spent quite a lot of time in the room due to my 2 year old and felt very comfortable. The beds were not the best as we found the mattress to be sagging and we could feel quite a few bed springs! However, this seems like a small price to pay considering the cleanliness and overall comfort of the room for the price.

The gentleman in the reception area was very helpful in booking us a pick up service from the airport to the hotel and later a ride back to the airport. He also provided me with a tourist map and spent quite some time giving me directions and recommendations about where to visit. He also recommended the excellent Pizzeria San Marco in the neighbourhood that we ending up visiting twice.

Overall this B&B is extremely good value and I would not hesitate to recommend it.
