We rented two double rooms as a family and stayed 6 nights. The apartment is tucked inside at the back part of a large residential building, only one flight of stairs and there's a small lift to carry your luggage up. The computer at the common reception area is free to use. Rooms are spacious enough. French windows or balcony...

Martha is so nice. She gave us a suggested itinerary to explore Rome in 2 days and it was so detailed. We followed her and it turned out that we covered all the most visited points of interest in Rome. Bravo!! She also lent us a guide book about Rome, so that we understand exactly what each place is about....

Last year we stayed in an apartment near Florence railway station and felt very pleased that we had found a great little place to stay close the city with an amazing host. Well we have done it again. Be First is so close to the Termini Station and many of the sights of Rome, the hosts Roberto and Marta went...

Good location, nice room with everything what is required. Very friendly and helpful hostess Martha. Air condition in the room was a huge deal because it was extremely hot those days in Rome. The only one small flaw - the refrigerator in the room was noisy and didn't cool weel

I can really only say what I said in September. A great little place to rst your head when you see Rome. Location is great... you can walk almost anywhere in Rome from there, from the Villa Borghese in the north, Basilica San Giovanni in Laterno in the South, Piazza Navona in the east are all accessible.

This B&B is provides small, clean, well equipped rooms at very good prices. The staff are warm and welcoming. In fact, about all you need when you are visiting Rome. Close to Santa Maria Maggiore and Piazza Vittorio Emanuele, you can walk to the Coliseum as well as San Giovanni in Laterno. Would I stay there again... certainly Would I...

Neighbourhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Be First B&B Located in the heart of Rome, the Bed And Breakfast Be First offers you a perfect accommodation in the Eternal City’s historic center. The location of the B&B Be First is ideal as we are just a really short walk from Termini, Rome’s main train station. You will also find some of the most famous city’s monuments within walking distance: the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore is quite around the corner while Coliseum and Roman Forum are just 10 minutes’ walk away from our door step. Moreover Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and many others legendary places are easily reachable on foot through some typical roman narrow streets. St Peter’s Basilica, Vatican Museums, Piazza Navona and Pantheon are all also easily reachable in a few minutes via Metro or bus, which stop is very close from the Be First . All rooms, with private bathroom, have been newly refurbished, so you can benefit from really modern facilities, a clean environment and all the comforts you would expect in a top rated hotel rather than in a Bed and Breakfast. At the same time, you will surely appreciate the friendly environment and a really familiar atmosphere, as our staff will make sure you are totally looked after during your stay. We will be happy to welcome you for an unforgettable Roman holiday! Make the most of your stay in Rome, stay at Be First! ... more   less
