Awesome host

This was our first time in a Bed and breakfast and we were pleasantly surprised. Simonetta was a very gracious hospitable host. Breakfast was abundant. Room was clean and comfortable. Location was very near train/metro station and if you’re willing to walk about 25 minutes walk to the Vatican. We highly recommend this place

Staying with Someone Who Cares

Our room was spacious and both it and the bathroom were clean, with many amenities provided. The location was perfect, being close to the Vatican and Metro but on a relatively uncrowded, quiet street. The breakfast was not cooked but did offer a good variety. Our host went overboard to be helpful and kind.

Excellent Stay with Simonetta ai Musei Vat in Rome

Simonetta was most helpful advising us where to get good food and tips about moving around in Rome. She has also been most accomodating and assisting my family whenever I ask her.

cute b&b with friendly host

Simon is a great host. Very nice and accommodating. Place is a little bare but good for what you pay. The room can be a little noisy in the morning when everyone is getting up and out.
