“Secluded penthouse B&B off the beaten track with spacious rooms, whitewashed walls, simple décor and the piece de resistance, a flower-filled private balcony on which to relax and enjoy an aperitivo as the sun goes down. A great budget choice and for those wanting to sample out-of-the-way Rome.”

Hotel Overview

“With just three rooms, this bed and breakfast has the feel of a secluded pied-a-terre tucked in a hidden corner of Rome, a short stroll from the vibrant Testaccio quarter near the Pyramide Metro. Its spacious rooms with clean lines, quality bedlinen, glass-and-metal tables and fresh flowers provide a calming oasis amidst the bustle of the city. The piece de resistance is that each one opens on to its own secluded private balcony bedecked with flowers, plants and garden furniture, a wonderful outdoor space in which to relax. The owner, Alessandro, serves a delicious breakfast to order and is on hand to make recommendations. It’s a great budget choice for those who want to get away from the tourist hordes and sample hidden Rome.”

See What They Say

“Why do people love staying in your hotel? Because I do my best to assist them with all their requests, provide a good service and a tasty breakfast. I always make sure the room and bathroom is clean and cosy. They appreciate a lot the terrace, I think it's a cherry on top during warm and sunny weather.

What is there to do in the area? The Metro (subway) and lots of bus stops are nearby. We are located in the area of Testaccio, not very well known among the tourist but very famous between romans for restaurants, clubs and live music bars.

What kind of breakfast do you offer? We do not cook but we offer Cappuccino, tea or coffee, croissants, ham, cheese, and fruit salad, depending on the guest. We also provide them with most of their specific request.

Which are your most popular room types, and why? We have three rooms in the old bed and breakfast with private terrace and three rooms in a new wing we just opened. The new accommodations do not have a private terrace but all of them have an ensuite bathroom.
