B&B Second Floor

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 September 2017

Location: Location is perfect! Right next to the Colosseum, Bars, Taxi Rank, restaurants and a Supermarket round the corner. The only thing to be cautious of is that because you are next to a major tourist attraction, there are lots of people that try to sell you things around further up from the hotel but you just have to ignore them and don't talk to anyone when they approach you.

Hotel Grounds: Hotel is beautiful inside and out, extremely welcoming and will do anything to make your stay comfortable, Alex on reception was brilliant when we had issues with our flights and arriving late. The rooms are extremely modern with lovely glass bathroom ceiling and lovely and clean. The only thing you must take into account when booking is that there are 2 bars next door so you must be comfortable with there being noise outside till quite late in the night. For us it wasn't a problem but it was quite noisy.

Advice for attractions: Next to the Colosseum there is a bus stop that has The Big Bus Tour stop there every 10 minutes. It was the best thing I purchased all holiday because it shows you sights you would not normally see with headphones that tell you interesting facts the whole way. It costs $30 pp but is well worth it as it's a hop on hop off bus so you can stop and start again anywhere. There is also lots of people that try to give you "advice" around the Colosseum about how to skip the queue for getting inside the building and will keep saying that the normal queue is around 1hr30 so will give you the option to pay to skip this queue, but DONT BE FOOLED the normal line is not 1hr30 it took us about 25 minutes.

Room Tip: When booking try to ask for one of the back rooms not overlooking the street as there will be less n...

Nice rooms, quite spacious with a simple bathroom with Shower. Location is ideal for travelling and sightseeing around Rome, directly opposite the Colusseum, which provided a wonderful view when eating in the cafe downstairs. We used it as a base while visiting, so the room was more than sufficient. Breakfast was continental, served in the cafe downstairs, with tasty pastries and plenty of strong coffee! Staff were great, whether is was a coffee, beer, lunch or evening meal and all was good too!
Will be back again to Rome as we did not see it all and would stay here again!

Room Tip: Second floor rooms were at the back, nice and quiet, but not a good view outside

Stayed here for 3 nights with my mum for a city break in January 2017.
Room wasn't ready on arrival but luggage was kept there and we went sightseeing and for lunch, on return room was ready.
However it took us a while to find the manager as the reception desk is not always manned as it is a small b&b. So we were left sitting on the stairs waiting for about 20 minutes. Manager Andrea however was friendly and helpful in all other aspects.

On initially check in room was modern and clean and spacious with a safe, coffee machine, fridge, plenty of clean towels.
Daily maid service with clean towels.
Only negative about room was some noise from the downstairs bars on our final night (Thursday night) which some people would find difficult to sleep through.
Also there was a strong 'drain smell' in the bathroom on our second and third days - we had to keep the bathroom windows open.

Breakfast was provided in the downstairs bar, very basic and come in a picnic basket with no choice. Wasn't the best, but was acceptable.

Location was superb. Right beside the colosseum, near the train station and stops for the Big Bus tours.

Overall the stay was average, reasonably comfortable and location was good.
I think I would choose somewhere else to stay on my next trip to Rome.

Stayed: January 2017, travelled with family
