Having booked this place through Hotels.Com I expected to be staying at a small hotel albeit I did understand it was a Bed&Breakfast arrangement. My mistake. Thing is we were walking up & down Via Tasso with luggage looking for something that didnt exist & neighbours said they had never heard of it. I eventually discovered a buzzer on an... More

We had a very enjoyable time in Rome made great by having a very spacious and comfortable apartment with lift, central heating and air conditioning having stayed there five nights. It was situated one street away from the main B&B. Location is very good with a very well stocked Spar Supermarket located about 5 minutes walk from the Apartment. Monika,... More

We stayed 2 nights in an apartment at the Obelus B and B and were very pleased with our experience. Monica is very friendly and helpful and was instrumental in putting my friends, who were first time travelers to Italy, at ease. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was more than adequate and was prepared in the apartment... More

Stayed at Obelus with 4 friends for 2 nights. Met by a relatively unfriendly staff who expressed displeasure due to us losing our way. Rooms were quite clean, kitchen was fully equipped with pots and pans. Met with an unexpected and unpleasant experience with bedbugs found on the sofa bed in the living room.

Staying in Esquilino

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)
It truly will feel as though you are staying at your best friend’s home when you are a guest at Obelus B&B located near His Majesty, The Colosseum. The three charming guest rooms have high ceiling and are clean and spacious and neatly furnished. All rooms have private bath rooms with shower, air conditioning, TV and safe box.You will wake up to the aroma of freshly baked croissants which are served every morning in the breakfast area located in the center of the apartment. The continental breakfast includes eggs, cheese, nutella, bread, toast, yogurt, american coffee, cappuccino, juice. So Monika and Pierdavide (the managers) make sure that Guests are given the proper startup for another dream-day in one of the most beautiful cities of the world.This B&B's located within walking distance of the Colosseum and it is the heart of the city. Consider that the Vatican is the farthest of all tourist attractions and it is only 3 kilometers away from Obelus, yet it can be reached with the underground train (the stop is around the block) and it is only 7 stops away (less than 8 minutes!!!) .People visit Rome for a multitude of reasons: the art, culture, food and wines. Relax and feel the magic in the air while walking the wonderful streets of The Eternal City. ... more   less
