We heard the owner was hurt in an accident, we never saw him/her, but had to wait over an hour to check in when we got there. No breakfast, possibly the same reason. We paid extra for our own bathroom, which we got but it was outside of room and across hall (past 3 other rooms), so difficult at night. Great location.

Great stay in Rome in B&B Happy Holiday, the owner, Damiano, was very nice, available for any requests and gave us useful turistic advices! The room was nice and cleaned every morning. A shared kitchen was available, quite small, where you can eat breakfast every morning (biscuits, croissant, bred, coffee...) and you can also use the kitchen to cook for lunch or dinner. We had a private bathroom, but at the beginnning it was not clear and other customers could use the bathroom... This problem was solved by Damiano.

It was really homey. A flat with your own room, then you have the kitchen and bathroom to share with the rest of the guests, but we rarely see the other ones so it wasn't crowded. I recommend the b&b. Nice place with WiFi. Breakfast and towels included.

typical of budget Italian hotels, it was hard to find. It should be obvious, but a small sign is easily overlooked by road-weary travelers. Because there is not full-time staff, when you book, they want to know the time of your arrival. Travelling from town to town often requires being flexible with time, but B&Bs don't seem to care about your problems. To get wifi, we had to leave our apartment and go to another apartment suite.

The B&B is well situated in the centre of Rome - close to tram, metro, bus and major attractions. Apart from that we were not to impressed. The rooms were ok clean but everything seemed to be of poor quality. The shower broke, door handles brike, ets. Rooms seemed of very different quality. Some seemed nice, others not. Alot of noise if your room faces the San Giovanni square. In my mind the B&B highly oversells itself on the webpage!

For Rome, this was a decent place. The rooms (in an appartment in another wing of the building) were pleasant and clean. Although we were welcomed very friendly, the absence of a lobby and the location of our rooms in another part of the building was not ideal. I found the rooms a little bit too expensive for value.

Room was clean and quiet except that there were too many ambulance passing by hence the noise at night. Damiano and Laura are very welcoming and stayed till late evening to welcome us with lots of tips of travelling in Rome. Any questions can just call or text Damiano, he'll reply almost instantly. Despite that, most of the time nobody is in the reception which is also a downside for this accommodation. Decent and equipped kitchen, breakfast wasn't very appealing - only basic bread and butter was provided. Bathrooms looks nice but not good to use. Location was very difficult to find as the location indicated on map was inaccurate.

Happy Holiday Bead & Breakfast was perfect for what we were looking for. We were on a tight budget as we were back packing through Europe for one month. The price at Happy Holiday was very reasponable, if you are ok with a shared bathroom. Our room and bathroom was clean and maintained daily by housekeeping. The bed was comfortable and our room was quite large, with one double bed and 2 single beds. The only downfall was that the traffic noise was loud. Location was great, about a 15-20 min walk to the collosseum. We enjoyed being able to walk everywhere. Overall Happy Holiday was a great for us!

Damiano and Laura were very welcoming, and I would not only go back to stay there, I would also recommend Happy Holidays to my friends and family. The cleaning staff was also very friendly. My room (#3), was very spacious and full of sunlight, I didn't want to leave! The location was also very good. About a 7 minute walk to the nearest metro station and a 12 minute walk to the coliseum. There were also busses that stopped right in front of the B&B. The sandwich/pizza/ grocery store right underneath the building was delicious! I had a sandwich there everyday!. The only things which they can improve on are: Giving a better description of the location (it took me over an hour to find the B&B because the website states it is on VIA San Giovanni, when really it is in the Piazza) There was no sign that the cleaning ladies ever cleaned my room in the 4 nights i was there (It wasn't dirty though!) Lastly the Breakfast wasn't much of a breakfast. They leave little cakes, cereal and toast with jam in the kitchen and you can help yourself. It wasn't bad at all, but it definitely wasn't a continental breakfast. OVERALL: VERY GOOD!!

Caracalla terms are 2 bus stops from this hotel. Damiano, the owner, is very supportive and kind, always ready to provide all information the guest may need.

Ended up being put in one of their other B&B's around the corner. Was a nice place and we were just left completely on our own which suited us fine.

We chose HH amongst other choices in the same price range because of the very good ratings. The landlord was indeed very friendly and helpfull at arrival and exit. However, HH did not fully live up to the high ratings on venere.com. The room and shared bathrooms were clean and spacious, but if you get a room to the street be prepared to bring earplugs! Also, we only had one set of towels for 5 nights. Breakfast was not served at HH but was a voucher for a bar 50 m away and was not a succes (coffee and a croissant and nothing else), so we ended up buying complementary yogurt and juice and a sandwich every morning.

I stayed in a single room, which happened to be very large with a lovely view across to st. Clements (I think). The rooms and bathroom were cleaned daily and the cleaner was polite and good to talk to. Damiano, whom I did not meet until my fourth day, was very well spoken in English and offered me a lot of his time. The best chuch I visited was on my door step, and the Colloseum is a 15 minute walk away. Unbelievable value.

It was a great place to stay, except when people forget to close the doors of he elevator and they don't work, so you have to trudge up 6 flights of stairs!

First night we had a room on the street side which was very noisy (and a bed with a pit). Next day the very friendly staff was more than happy to accomodate us with a nice and quiet room on the other side. One of the two showers was a bit broke, but there's two, so no problem when getting up early before all other guests are awake. Breakfast is self-service, and certainly could be better, but why bother? When in Rome, be smart and get yourself a capuccino and a brioche at a coffee bar. That's the way to go. All in all we had a pleasant stay and wouldn't mind coming back to this place.

The only difficulty we had was finding the place. I looked up the walking directions on googlemap and it came up with a different location so we ended up walking all over. the driving directions were helpful even though we were walking. the directions from the metro were vague. make sure you look for the Piazza di San Giovanni in Laterano rather than the street. We enjoyed the accommodations and the staff were friendly. It's located on the 5th floor and there is an elevator.

Big room with an amazing view, but lots of noise even though it was on the 6th floor. Big hassle trying to find Damiano when trying to check out because we were in the "casa nuova" in the other side of the building. He's very helpful - when you can find him. Great location, but better to face the courtyard and trade the view for less noise. No breakfast, but vouchers for the local bar were easy and we loved getting to know the local coffee bar family.

The location is very strategic, the public transport, the churches; St. John the Lateran, the La Scala Santa, St. Anthony. The name of the B&B is just written in typewritting that you wont find it at once. The staff, Damiano & Laura very accommodating and helpful & they attend to requests at once. There is 24 hr internet, this is great! There are two floor occupants using the kitchen, when the occupants of the 6th floor knock, you have to open and let them in without knowing whether they're really occupants of the other unit. Please, improve the doors, very noisy when you close & open. I will stay in the same place again provided that doors will be improved to minimize noise. Thanks

Lovely accommodation: clean and very comfortable. Helpful staff. Traffic could be noisy. Ideal walking distance to many historical sites. Instructions to find property, would suggest after leaving metro station at "Coin" shop, go left and walk through arch of old city wall, then turn left and walk towards the basilica facing you. Cross the road near this building, and the appartments are in the building facing you.

The locaiton of this hostel is awesome! It is just located opposite to the plaza San Giovanne~! And the receptionist is really helpful as he immediately give the map to us and write down the time we need to walk between each sightseeing point! The room is clean and spacious. One point I have to say is that the location of the hostel on the map here is wrong!!! We get lost in Rome and cant findthe exact location of this hostel at 9 sth that night!!! Luckily a very nice couple use their "correct" map to help us figure it out finally!

The owner rent rooms in an appartment with a shared bathroom and a shared small kitchen. There is no wc in the room. The kitchen is very small and there is no public space (salon or living room) to sit, to read or to look on tv. There is a shared pc to access on internet. The room is close the public transportation.

The room was clean, close to public transportation and not too far from Rome's attractions. However, the bathroom did not have a toilet seat, which I think is mandatory no matter how inexpensive a place is. The room was noisy, but I think that goes with most of the city. If you have a room with a window in Rome, expect it to be noisy. Otherwise, the place was reasonably decent. Most important, clean and comfortable- including the bed! The service was friendly and we had internet access. Overall, for the price, the place is a great deal!

For this price the B&B Happy Holiday is really a very good choice! 10 minutes to the train station, 5 minutes to the colloseum. We had direct view on the basilica san giovanni in laterano from our room. The size and interior of our room was good, we had a shared bathroom (two bathrooms for four hotel rooms). everything was very clean. We got bed-cloths and towels; the room is air conditioned with many europlug-sockets. The receptionist is really very friendly, we could use his computer to check out the departure date of our train. Breakfast is also very fine: milk, juice, water, bread, toast, butter, marmelade, nutella, cakes, cornflakes.

Le bed and breakfast est tres bien situe, a 10 minutes a pieds du centre historique et 30 minutes des quartiers ou sortir le soir. Ce qui est important vu que les transports en communs ne fonctionnent que jusqu a minuit. Damiano, l hote, est toujours la pour aider pour les reservations de musee, indiquer piscines, restaurants, quartiers a visiter. Un super guide. Les chambres sont spacieuses, propres, et le petit dejeuner complet. Il y a meme un frigo a disposition et des plaques de cuisson, si l on a envie de cuisiner. En somme: a recommander vivement.

This B&B is really well located, almost at Piazza di San Giovani in Laterano close to the Basilica and to metro stations (San Giovani and Colosseo). Only 10 min. walk and you can reach Colosseo. Staff were really welcoming and I was happy also due to the Air-Conditioning. As a little problem I find size of the kitchen and glass doors in our room. It´s a pity that Happy Holiday doesn´t offer some rooms with private bathroom as well. In Rome, I met a friendly Italians, who wanted to help and some of them even speak English.

This hotel has A/C which was really nice. The location is at a busy intersection so there is a lot of noise even at night. Next time, I think I will stay more central to Rome. The breakfast was just packaged pastries that are available throughout the day, nothing special. But the owner was very helpful and knowledgeable about the city.

We had a very warm welcoming and were given a map which he wrote exactly were we should go in Rome. A little hard to find because name of road is easily confused with the road leading down to the colosum (which can be accessed in 5-7mins.) Call him before you book is my advice... ;-) Nice breakfast, lots of cakes and bread that is available all day if you want, and was nice to be able to cook dinner in the kitchen. The manager even lets you use his computer in reception when ever you want. Brand new decoration, Def recommend staying her when in Rome.

The bed and breakfast was one of the best i have stayed in overall. When compared to the others overall this was the best. Breakfast, free kitchen, friendly helpful and internet put it over the top. Other bed and breakfasts i stayed in do not have internet and only offer a coffee and pastry for breakfast... (what kind of breakfast is that??? 2 euro in total for all) Downsides: Window in room was broken, glass window on door to room which is bad for sharing facilities, showers did not drain properly and the broken window.

It was my second time in rome and as always I was satisfied about the city. The Hotel is more like a flat share with common bathroom and kitchen. The atmosphere was kindly and friendly and you will get your own key to be independent from the reception. The walls are quite thin and you will here a lot of your surroundings but at night it was always quite. Positive is the central location, with good connection to Bus and Subway. Good cheap and classical italian food you will find near the colloseum at the restaurant Tratorria Pizzeria, it's located at the corner on your way to the colosseum.

We were very happy with Damino(our host) he gave us a map(although some of the buildings are turned the wrong way on the map and this takes some time to get oriented, at times we walked blocks the wrong way and then realized it) with all the information needed and a great resturant with delicious food and real Itallian atmosphere-no tourists! And great price! The hotel was within walking distance to the colliseum, the metro close and the bus too. The Roma pass is good if you are going to visit many museums(Vatican not included) then all public transportation is free for 3 days but I dont think that it is that expensive? The breakfast(coffee and crosiant) was a the bar next around the corner and the people there very friendly and even gave an extra coffee without charge. But we did leave a small tip everyday for fun. Overall I would recomend this place for anyone looking for a clean place to sleep and great price. My parents were with me and they thought a table and chair would of been handy but then there was not really the room and mostly you are out the whole day anyway, but since they are older and we were there in the winter, taking a break for then would ok been ok.

The host and hostess were a most welcoming and extra helpful couple right through our week-long stay. Our room was large, clean, and well kept. Access to snacks and coffee in the kitchen at all hours was a real feature. It was possible to make the occasional small meal. The hotel, across the road from St John Lateran Cathedral, is placed in an excellent position 100m from a great variety of bus connections, and within easy access to restaurants. When comparing Happy Holiday with our stay in two other full hotels in Tuscany and another in Rome, Happy Holiday was the best in value for money.

First it was hard to find the B&B as it is just a flat in a townhouse with no big sign. When I arrived w/ my mom there was a note waiting for me that there were some problems w/ pipes and Damiano have booked us to other hotel for the first night. 2nd night we were moved to the other B&B Crazy Holiday and even better room given. Damiano paid for the taxi and the rooms were awesome. Clean, modern and kitchen was available w/ some tea & cofee. Even my mom was excited about this accommodation & location. Close to the centrum & shops available just downstairs.

We were actually moved to the Crazy Holiday B&B, as I guess the other was full. But it was still close by, subway only a few blocks away. Our room was on the inside of the building, towards a courtyard, so very quiet. Good selection of 'do-it-yourself' foods for breakfast, plus a fridge to put anything in that you purchased, and a stove if you wanted to cook your own meals. We enjoyed our stay, the room was nice and the price, I think, reasonable.

The only problem we had was not being told to go to another location on arrival. We turned up to the appartment, to be told by a cleaner that we were meant to go to another building about 5 minutes walk away to book in. Apart from this the stay was excellent and the accomadation was outstanding in all aspects.
