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.

The Best B&Bs in Rome

For Location

  • The Arco dei Tolomei is an intimate, 6 room hotel in the centre of Rome with carefully chosen decor with includes some lovely antiques, great art and charming wallpapers.

For a City Break

  • In the heart of Rome, the Piazza di Spagna 9 is a six bedroom ‘designer mansion’ with its own contemporary art gallery. As well as the six individually decorated rooms there’s also a steam bath.
  • In one of the hippest spots in town, G-Rough is both luxurious and hip. This townhouse, built in the 17th Century, still has its beautiful parquet floors and original tiles, but it’s also got a fantastic collection of retro furniture in the 10 rooms. Plus there's a fantastic roof terrace and it’s only 450metres from the Pantheon, and even closer to the Piazza Navona.
  • Buonanotte Garibaldi is a chic little B&B in the vibrant and historic Trastevere district, which is a great spot for local colour. There are just three rooms, themed by colour, with silk paintings, oak floors and antiques.

For Great Value

  • The Althea Inn is a three roomed B&B off the beaten track in the artistic Testaccio area. Rooms are spacious and whitewashed and there’s a lovely private balcony. Rooms start from just €80 per night.
  • For a similar room rate you can afford to stay in the centre of town, in the Hotel de Monti, which has seven bright, comfortable rooms set between the train station and the Colosseum.
  • If you want to be right in the heart of things, by the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain, try the Residenza Frattina, a charming townhouse with 13 neutrally decorated bedrooms with nice original features, such as stone floors, fireplaces and exposed beams.
