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.

Stayed 4 nights in Sep. 2018

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.

5/5 Excellent

Easy walking distance to the Vatican.

Simonetta was a wonderful hostess, she sent us a lot of information and recommendations when we first booked our accommodation. She arranged for the Roma passes we wanted to be at the B&B shortly after our arrival and booked our visit to the Galleria Borghese when we wanted to go.

Pros: Easy access to the underground transportation system. Very secure with three locked doors from the street to our room.

Location: Easy to find and a couple of very good restaurants within a few short blocks.
