Close location but really bad rooms
i could hear the next door couple flush their toilets and it made my sink bubble up.
Ancient Romance B&B is the best value in Rome! Excellent staff, facilities, and location! The staff was very polite and responsive to our needs. The rooms are charming, comfortable, and kept spotless. One could not ask for a better location. You can walk to the Vatican Museum or Piazza San Pietro in less than 5 minutes, or Castel Sant’Angelo in 10. We have been in Rome dozens of times and never stayed at the same hotel twice. That changes now. We have found our go-to place in Rome and will be back.
Not a thing.
The location was perfect, 5 minutes walking from the Vatican square and the metro station was just outside the front door. The staff were all extremely friendly and accommodating. Everything was clean. The breakfast was good enough. We recommend this place.
The Wi-Fi was very spotty. The beds were firmer than we liked, but this depends per person. Even though the breakfast was good, it is not what you expect from a typical Bed & Breakfast.
to arrive back home
booking confirmation was at Via Ottaviano 9. No one answered the bell at the door. On the phone I got the info to go to an other adress. It was midnight. I ordered pick up from the airport from Ancient Romance BB, it was confirmed, but forgotten, I had to wait more than 30 minutes. Breakfast was almost nothing. From 7a.m till 8 p.m flow market under the street windows with a constant noise.
Very close to metro and st. Peter square. Room is clean and comfortable. Good for money.
Even it states credit card payment is acceptable, owner insists cash when check out. Wifi sometimes has no singal.
very close to subway
The location: 50 m. from Vatican, 3 minutes to go to the nearest subway station, two nice restaurants in front of the hotel. Large comfortable number. The breakfast may seem not enough for someone, but we prefer to go the the cafe instead :-) There is a mini kitchen near the number with refrigerator, teapot, coffee machine. Polite staff, domestic atmosphere. We're satisfied :-)
The mattress is not very soft,
- Location, close to Vatican and to Ottaviano metro station. - Clean rooms. - Relatively quiet.
- Breakfast consisting of packaged food. - Tiny TV.
It had a good air conditioner that kept the room cool. The maid service was very good. The staff was friendly and had a lot of good information.
It seemed a little bit over priced. The breakfast was pre-packaged food and 2 pieces of fresh fruit per person.
Location close to Metro and Vatican Two bedrooms and kitchen with table provided plenty of space for our family or four (two teens). Very clean Large bathroom Helpful managers
Included breakfast was below par with packaged pastries and lacked fruit choices
Located near the metro and the Vatican. Good price. Very quaint. Staff very welcoming. Breakfast was in the room.
Had to pay in cash which we did not know about ahead of time
Great location, clean, reasonable breakfast, friendly helpful staff..
The staff was very friendly. The room was quiet and soothing. Breakfast was decent however it was a dry one.
The room cleaning and specially toiletries were not good.
accomodation are good, big, bright, light. Staff very friendful and helpful. good wifi connection. Just 3 min to Vatican city.
I liked being close to the Vatican.
Breakfast was very poor.
Very close to a metro station to get to and from many of the sights in Rome.
Good location. Clean room. Staff friendly and helpful.
The breakfast was not good. Pretty packaged food. No decaf coffee as other places had.
Breakfast was nothing like pictured, everything was prepackaged. Also, we were never offered a roof top terrace, like pictured. We has two rooms, the first room had a broken air conditioner, and when we told reception they did nothing about it. We asked for a fan, and they wouldn't even provide that. In the other room the air worked, but the bed was broken. It felt like we were going to slide off. We had to shove towels under the sides at night. Also, this room was behind reception, and was very noisy. Not good for our 4 month old.
It was a nice stay with good location.
the breakfast is a major let down.
Good location and the staff is friendly and helpful.
Breakfast is not so good.
Great location, Great people, Great room, Thanks!
Very friendly staff, excellent location (also near Metro), clean, straight and reliable if you do not care for luxury and are looking for a basic solid place. Minimal breakfast in room (Italian style). Great local downscale pizza & more place around the corner, very tasty. Air conditioner in room, historical building. Ring doorbell (no other sign except that).
Some noise from adjacent bathrooms and street, but hey, this is a large city - to be expected. Location, cleanliness and staff are the plusses here.
Location very close to Vatican museums, loads of bars/shops around, rooms are nicely decorated
Bathroom is small, elevator to get to 5th and 6th floor is quit slow and can take only 2 persons a time
Excellent location, 3 minute walk to Vatican.
They did not accept credit cards while was openly stated in the voucher. No sound isolation at all, we could not sleep because of toilet flushing and bathroom sounds of next room. This is not a proper hotel but separated rooms in some flats of an old apartment. It feels more like a hostel. Parking is totally impossible in that part of the city.
