We stayed here in early February in a room for triple. It was very clean, quiet and comfortable. Every morning we started our day with a great breakfast of baked goods, meat cuts and fresh fruit juice along with coffee or tea choices. This was a great central location near a metro station which made getting around much easier. We...

I booked this B&B online on the basis of a misleadingly large 'discount' that was offered on the price by Booking.com. (Was led to believe it was a high class room for a bargain price ). Whilst the central location is excellent,I was put in the annexe, and simply did not feel very safe in there, with the other travellers...

We have stayed here for 4 nights. Our double room was in the opposite building with an external but own bathroom. Our room was very comfy and lovely. The furniture was old-fashioned, but we enjoyed it, because it was charming. The room and bathroom was very clean. Only negative thing is that they did not fill in the toilet paper,...

We had booked a room for four people, which had one large double bed and 2 regular beds, and the room in general was quite spacious, though it didn't offer shampoos etc in the bathroom. The breakfast was good, in both quantity and quality. The apartment is in a very good place, near the Manzoni metro station, and by walking...

The apartment is very big with 2 bedrooms and a kitchen. It was very clean. It was close to metro station and the coliseum is in walking distance. There is a free wi fi which was working very good. Monika, who made the checked-in, helped us to find the perfect place to park our car right next to the apartment....

Obelus has very good position. From this point one can reach many things worth to see in this magic town by foot. Also there are metro, tram and busses nearby. Rooms are clean and safe, staff is kind and attentive. From my point of view this place satisfied all prerequistes to take deep breath of Roma.

If you ever come to Rome and you want to be right in the middle of everything, for not much money.....This is a fabulous little b&b, 10 minutes walk from the Colusseum.

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It truly will feel as though you are staying at your best friend’s home when you are a guest at Obelus B&B located near His Majesty, The Colosseum. The three charming guest rooms have high ceiling and are clean and spacious and neatly furnished. All rooms have private bath rooms with shower, air conditioning, TV and safe box.You will wake up to the aroma of freshly baked croissants which are served every morning in the breakfast area located in the center of the apartment. The continental breakfast includes eggs, cheese, nutella, bread, toast, yogurt, american coffee, cappuccino, juice. So Monika and Pierdavide (the managers) make sure that Guests are given the proper startup for another dream-day in one of the most beautiful cities of the world.This B&B's located within walking distance of the Colosseum and it is the heart of the city. Consider that the Vatican is the farthest of all tourist attractions and it is only 3 kilometers away from Obelus, yet it can be reached with the underground train (the stop is around the block) and it is only 7 stops away (less than 8 minutes!!!) .People visit Rome for a multitude of reasons: the art, culture, food and wines. Relax and feel the magic in the air while walking the wonderful streets of The Eternal City. ... more   less

“The shower water supplier needs to be fixed or changed to allow water inflow in the best way, and the bathroom window needs a cover as it is facing houses who can see through it if they are outside, also the sofa is not comfortable it needs to be changed”
