눉Almost in the front of the building where this B&B is located there are three or four large garbage dumpsters that sometimes were smelling. It’s not a problem anyway as the smell does not reach the rooms, but it’s not very nice when arriving to the B&B. Important to say that the B&B has nothing to do with it, as this is managed by the city of Rome.
눇I would like to start this review saying that I definitely recommend this B&B.
We stayed at Locanda Colosseo in July 2015 on a family trip to Italy and we have reserved three rooms (two twins and one triple). Talking about the rooms, they were clean and on a decent size (please consider the European standards and it’s in the heart of Rome, very central on an old but very well preserved building). The beds were really comfortable and the shower was good. The size of the bathroom is either good. It’s important to say that July is really hot in Rome and the air conditioner did its job very well, making the room a very pleasant place to stay and relax after a long day exploring the city. WI-FI working properly.
The location of the B&B cannot be more perfect! It’s 5 minutes walking from Colosseum, 2 minutes from Cavour metro station and 12 minutes from Termini train station. The Palatino, Bocca della Verità and most of the main attractions in Rome is within 15-20 minutes walking distance from the B&B. Via Cavour is central on a touristic neighborhood, really safe and plenty of bars, pubs and restaurants to choose.
The staff was helpful giving tips of how to get to specifically places in Rome, specially Mr. Riccardo (the owner) that were extremely gentle with everyone. One problem has occurred with one of the rooms and some members of my family had to stay one night in another B&B at the same building (2nd floor), but it was not a problem as the B&B and booking.com have contacted us before our arrival explaining everything to us. The front desk works from 8am to 8pm, so informing the time of your arrival and planning your departure is highly recommended.
The breakfast is simple but fair for a B&B. It’s served on a caffè 10 steps away from the B&B entrance. You can choose coffee (dark, with milk or cappuccino) plus a glass of juice (orange or pineapple) and something to eat (sweet croissant, no salt option) or ham & cheese toast.
