Whether this is your first visit to Rome, your 10th, or anyplace in between, this should be your first consideration for a B&B. Simply put, you could not find a better place to stay in central Rome. This was our ysecond visit to Rome, and when planning our trip there was no question about where we would stay. With a... More

Great location! Five-minute walk to the Vatican! Very close to Metro stop making it very easy to visit all the sights. Matilde is very welcoming and accommodating. We arrived very late at night, and she was there to greet us. She gave us several tips to save money for parking our car and getting around to see the sights. I... More

We stayed at Matilde " Peacock Garden Apartment" Fantastic!! it was everything we were looking for space, privacy, and very well furnished. It was a joy to deal with Matilde. We also viewed her "Formyfriendsbnb" it also was very nice if you are looking for just a bedroom with ensuite, it also has a garden but not private as such.

We had an amazing stay at For My Friends B&B in Rome this summer! We booked a room with a walk-in closet and a private bathroom, everything equipped with all we needed from fresh towels and sheets to the best hair-dryer ever, not to mention air conditioning which is a must during summer in Rome.

We stayed at For my friends B&B in July for 3 nights, myself, husband and 2 boys aged 13 & 9. What a lovely place! The location was a 10 min walk from the Vatican and a 5 min walk from the underground. Matilde the owner was such a lovely woman and nothing was too much trouble for her. She... More

Matilde's place was exactly what we needed for our visit in Rome. A lot of thought has obviously gone into the furnishings and decoration, we loved the art work in the breakfast room. The room we stayed in was quiet and had everything we needed. We also really enjoyed talking to Matilde over breakfast and getting her tips on where... More

Just like the pictures. Very pretty court yard. Secure. Good location in a local neighborhood. Walking distance to the Vatican. Some cafes and grocery near by. Good breakfast was very good. Matilde was very accommodating with breakfast arrangement and food restrictions.

A very pleasant stay! We visited for the marathon in April and Matilde looked after us very well. She even provided an early morning breakfast for my boyfriend pre run which we were grateful for. Good tips and recommendations were given re skipping queues and places to eat. Clean room and a beautiful apartment.

The location is very central, not far from the Vatican, in a very nice neighborhood with shops and restaurants. The owner Matilde has always been available to give us tips for sightseeing, and made us a good and abundant breakfast. I felt comforted as in an hotel. I recommend this B&B to you all!

Staying in Prati

Neighbourhood Profile
Prati
Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
