The Best B&Bs in Rome

One of the best things about staying in B&Bs are those personalised recommendations you get when meeting other travellers or locals. And Rome is a wonderful city for an insight or recommendation! Sure, you’ll have an amazing time if you just tick off the tourist hot spots, but if you have a chance to explore a bit further and go a bit deeper then you’ll never want to leave. Our Gurus have uncovered the best B&Bs in Rome to get you started with those insights.

Their recommendations for the best B&Bs in Rome include some luxury options, as well as some perfectly located gems and some wonderful family apartment-style accommodation.
