Bed and Breakfast Double B
Ranked #3,110 of 3,781 Rome B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 May 2016

This bed and breakfast is in a very good location in walking distance to the colosseum. When we arrived no one was there even though we had arranged a late check in. We had to call a number written on a piece of paper and stuck to the door. Two men then came round the corner saying the person with the keys would be here in a minute which was very disconcerting as a group of 3 19 year old girls in a foreign country! The man then arrived and let us in. He was very lovely and friendly. He helped one of us take our case down the stairs leaving the other two of us to struggle with ours after a long journey. The actual bed and breakfast was located in the basement of the building which was very unusual but not really an issue. As a group of teens we weren't awake early enough to try the breakfast or have our room cleaned. But when we requested they come later in the day to clean this was not an issue and they were very nice about it. The only real issue we had was 2/3 nights in to our week stay when the radiator came on in our room and we had no idea how to turn it off! And after long days site seeing in the intense heat this is not what we needed! We struggled with this for 3 nights and could never even find anyone to ask about the issue. Eventually the issue resolved itself so we can only imagine another room had the same issue and they managed to find someone to notify. Very cute b & b with extremely friendly and helpful staff when they could be located! We even struggled to find someone to pay our bill at the end of the week!

first they charged double. I pay 183€ in booking.ie and they charged additional 120€ for the service (don't know what service??? they still didn't confirm it) and 40€ city charge. for 345€ I was able to get proper hotel not just a room in the basement. I requested to cancel my booking as it was still 10days before arriving but communication was poor. they promised me 20€ discount but didn't give it as well. It was getting very noisy in the morning so no sleep from 5am. it was not possible to open the window because of mosquitoes and also because our window was the ground level, so dogs, cats and people were walking just beside my bed. and with the closed window it was unbelievably hot. it was very bad experience as it cost me more than I can afford and after my few days in Rome I was happy to go back home and have proper sleep.

There is no wifi, there is no staff and the owner whose name I forgot started to argue. They are like mafia.This hostel is underground and the price is the same us a 3 star hotel next to it.. We stayed only 1 night the other day the uneducated owner told us leave the room or sleep in a double bed and on a sofa with 4 people. It was so disrespectful.We went to 3 star hotel next to this which was great with the same price.

At first it was a bit hard to get into, had to stand outside for about 10 minutes ringing the buzzer and ask locals if we were at the right place, the lady who dealt with us was absolutely fantastic, very helpful and very kind, the place was tidy and spacious and the bed was great for a good night sleep after a long day touring,would recommend this to anyone

This is an basement of building where has been changed to 3 rooms with their bathrooms. windows at the level of pedestrian side of road. little bit humid, even though they have made recent redesign of rooms. the bed is so soft that made me not feel comfortable as i prefer solid mattresses. At the check in they charged me extra fees that i did not notice during the reservation (extra 15 euros/night divided like this : 5€ electricity, 5€ cleaning of bed sheets and towels, 5€ for for room cleaning).
This place is really a trap for wasting extra 15 euros/night + regional tax
