I stayed here for 5 months and honestly could not have wished for better accommodation. The rooms themselves are full of character and I felt at home from the very beginning of my stay. There is a TV with sofas, a dining table, fireplace and kitchen which make it a very homely setting and a far cry from generic and...

My review is really ironic in that my excellent experience comes because I am not booking the Saxa Rubra bed and breakfast...thanks to TA. I found this site today doing a Google search for my son's honeymoon in March in Rome...rooms looked wonderful but I was not sure if there were ensuite baths--so I emailed to check that and availability...

Being away we wanted nothing more than to have an authentic and intimate setting for Christmas. After doing a ton of research we decided Saxa Rubra was the perfect place for "a romantic refuge". Once we arrived we then realized that not everything seems to be as it actually appears...this place was a true disappointment. The pictures online were nothing...

This was the worst experience I have had travelling. I requested 2 double en-suite rooms and recieved 2 rooms which shared a bathroom with another room. The rooms themselves where built in the attic so you could not stand up right. The bathroom was also in the attic and again you could not stand straight. The bath also did not...

The hotel is located in the elbow of a busy intersection, so be prepared to risk death crossing the street. Also the neighborhood activity seemed to involve groups of guys drinking beer and standing next to their cars. It felt mildly threatening, but that's probably just my American paranoia kicking in. Our room was in the attic. It had slanted...

The location of Saxa Rubra was decent, about a 20 minute train ride to the city. The hostess was very pleasant and nice, the accomodations aestheticly speaking were really charming and worth the price, HOWEVER, it was probably the worst nights sleep that we got while in Europe. Everything is wood, we heard every single creak and footstep and conversation...

We should have seen a red flag when the proprietor, who was supposed to meet us, was not home when we arrived. We had to wait for 30 minutes in the taxi on the side of a busy road. We booked five nights but left after the first two. The upstairs rooms where very cramped and cold (my friend slept...

Our experience at Saxa Rubra is mixed. The B&B is located about 20 minutes from Rome by train and you will find Francesca, the owner and proprietor to be an absolute delight. However, our accommodations were a bit cramped. Although our room was immaculate and charming, it was extremely small (10x10) and in the attic portion of the house, which...
