Young couple traveled to Italy and used Venere to book six hotels. The hotel does not match the high ratings. Service was average at best (all our other bookings were excellent) and breakfasts and common areas were very lacking. Good economic value given how expensive Florence is but if you can spring a few more euros, I would do that as we were disappointed.

Because the owners do not live on premises, you are on your own if there is a problem. The "private bath" was in the hall and did not lock. The hall was dark and creepy. Not at all welcoming. There was no eating area so "breakfast" had to be eaten in your room and there wasn't enough room to put the tray anywhere except on the bed. Once into the door to the apartment complex there is absolutely no way to find the B and B. I asked one of the residents where it was and they didn't know. The next showed me which section of the complex it was in, but the door was locked and there was a dozen door bells for that section and their name was not on any of them. It turned out, it was the one blank door bell. Very frustrating and time consuming. Owner was not there when we got there, so housekeeper called her on phone and she had to come from her home to check us in. That was the only time she was there except to make coffee in the morning and she kept herself closed off in the kitchen at that time. Not at all the friendly experience that we expected from a B and B.

It is only a short walk to the metro as well if you don't want to walk. I chose to walk. This neighborhood is great, with a lot to offer of its own......

This B&B is in an apartment building in the Prati district just north of Vaticano. Easy walk from the Cipro Metro station. It is not staffed all day. Coordinate your arrival with management. We were early, but after a phone call and a 10 minute wait, we were checked in. It's a quiet, safe neighborhood with bars and restaraunts in easy walking distance. Piazza San Pietro - easy walk Castel St. Angelo - easy walk Navona district - good walk Piazza Navona - long walk Piazza del Popolo - long walk Spagna - hefty walk Colosseo - hefty walk ( walk there, take the metro home) These are not big rooms with spacious bathrooms but are a great value. We have stayed twice now, and will return.

The B&B Laocoonte is not a hotel. It is an apartment with rooms which are rented to travelers. There is no common room, and breakfast is brought to you in your own room. Sadly, our room ("Friends") was very, very small. We were two people (two sisters)with two twin beds; a couple who shared a bed might fare better. The promised Wifi did not work in our room; it was necessary to go down the hall and stand near the reception area to get a signal. That said, the place is quiet and clean and we felt safe there. The location is very nice.

Very cute B&B! Hiromi and Giordano were very nice! We got lost coming from the metro to the hotel and Giordano came and found us to take us to the hotel. (The map and directions from the website were quite confusing, as there is no fountain in a park near the train stop.) The room was small, but clean, and aside from the trash trucks one morning, quiet. Breakfast was good, delicious coffee! Our bathroom was in the hall, though it was our own. The shower was quite small--if you lost your footing in the shower, you and the shower were going down! It was a good location to the Vatican and train stops. We would stay here again!

The room was airy and spacious, and always clean. The owners and staff were friendly and helpful. Quiet, safe, residential neighborhood, but with great connections to the centre (bus and metro stops nearby) and right next to the Vatican. My only complain would be that the walls were thin and I could hear the next room occupants talking or watching TV (but I am a light sleeper when I travel, so that's a personal problem). Apart from that I would highly recommend it.

Service and breakfast were really good, thanks to Hiromi, who was very helpful and friendly. The room and bathroom were quite small, but that was perfectly alright since we knew beforehand and didn't need more space. There is free WLAN available and a small fridge in the room. Another plus factor is definitely the availability of a water despenser in the hall (cold and hot water), thus you don't have to think about buying water for drinking! The location near the Vatican is very convenient, a lot of restaurants and shops nearby, nice area, good access to metro line A. The nearby market (about 200m from the B&B) is a must to visit and buy local goods like delicious prosciutto, mozarella, wine... I would fully recommend this wonderful & friendly B&B if it was not for the bed which was really uncomfortable because of the terribly worn-out mattrass in room 2 or 4 (don't remember exactly). If the mattrass was renewed, I'd definitely stay there again!

Normal stay in a wonderful city, very close to the Vatican City and well served by the Rome Metro. Unfortunately no reserved Parking is provided by the B&B. Prices are high but probably adequate to the location (Vaticano, Prati). The bathroom had a water leakage which was not fixed during our 4 night stay.

Very nice stay, friendly staff, nice room with comfy beds, staff helpfull with map and personal info (which buses to take, which restaurants near by are good etc), nice breakfast which gets your day started (much more & better than I expected for Italian B&B). Rooms are not big but cosy and there is a decent table for breakfast (in own room). At walking distance from Vatican and close to metro- and busstop, all really nice and practical. The streets around the hotel are old/classic apartment-buildings and shops, not industrial area as I have seen in other trips before. B&B is located in an public apartment building so from the outside you don't recognize the building as "B&B". The pictures on the website show a beautifull garden, which is there but it is the garden that is shared by the whole apartment habitants. But that's OK. The street itself does not have shops or anything. There is an occasional garbage-pick-up truck at night, but apart from that it is really quiet. Windows can remain open whilst metal shutters remain locked, so safe and still ventilated. Recommend diner at nearby "Isola della pizza" for affordable good, basic Italian food and nice staff (even at Monday evening plenty of visitors so you will definitely not feel "lonely"). Try their excellent freshly grilled "Tagliata di manza"!

Although the room was small, it was very clean and nicely decorated. The street was a bit seedy, but the apartment building the B&B was located in was very secure, safe and had a nice interior garden. It was a five minute walk to the Vatican and to the A subway line, making it a great location. We enjoyed our stay there and the lovely large cappacinos delivered to our room each morning. We only had a brief interaction with the couple who managed the B&B as they checked us in. They don't live on the site and only rushed over in the mornings to make the simple breakfast and bring it to our room. Overall, I would recommend Laocoonte!

This bed and breakfast is only 2 blocks from the Vatican ad St Peter's Basilica, however it is out of the way for everything else. In order to get anywhere we had to either take the subway (4 blocks away), or the bus. The room was very clean and the lady who prepared the breakfast (Gina), was awesome! Breakfast was light (nothing like the U.S), yet very satisfying. Upon on our arrival the person in charge (Giovanni) rushed through the check in and we we're barely able to remember what he said, also I had to call him to get the username and Password for wifi cause he neglected to offer this info at check in. All in all the room was very clean and comfortable. I would stay here again :)

Wonderful, safe, central location. Laocoonte is close to Vatican city and the Metro to get you anywhere you need to go.

I really appreciated that there was free wifi and (free) use of the phone for local calls at Laocoonte. The room I stayed in was clean, bright, and roomy. The room was nice enough that the lack of common spaces didn't really bother me. There wasn't someone who was there at the property at all times (in case I had any questions or problems), but there was a phone that I could use to get in touch with the owners. Since I was there only to sleep, it wasn't too bad. The location of the B&B was close to the Metro stop (Cipro) and the Vatican museum entrance. It is located in a quiet neighborhood, and a bit far from the city center, but with the Metro it was convenient to get around. At night, however, the street was really dark and the building a bit hard to locate. Hiromi was friendly, helpful, and very accommodating. I would definitely stay here again the next time I'm in Rome!

Excellent welcoming;we were allowed to occupate our 2 rooms before 12 o'clock(normal check-in is 3.p.m).Good information had been given previously by mail for reservation of the Vatican museum(absolute necessity if you want to avoid miles of queueing)During our stay telephone reservation was made by our hosts for the Villa Borghese museum and internet research for the bus lines(bus stop in immediate vicinity/metro too). Frienliness and discretion altogether make you perfectly comfortable at B&B Laoconte.A very good Roman breakfast and nice view ,especially for the rooms overlooking the courtyard with palm trees assure a good beginning of the day. Rooms are a bit small and we would have preferred single beds but this will not impede our excellent impresion .Good price for this quality!

Highly recommended. I think Laocconte is the perfect place for a couple seeking to enjoy Rome in a city trip. Well located, nice people and super capuccino in the mornings!!! what else? Rooms are not very big (at least our room), but are confortable, clean and quite, so it is exactly what we were looking for.

As it is with most B&B that I've read, you have to announce your arrival to the owner so s/he can meet you (as they won't be there in the place most of the time). This I did, and when I got disoriented finding the place, I called the owner. He was there instantly to meet me! I guess if the B&B page explains that if you find the nearby church first, then the traffic light in front of it, it will be easy to locate the place, which is in the next road when you turn left of the traffic light. And be clear that the church is behind you when exiting the Cipro station! The wireless Internet is perfect for travelers, and the room is spotlessly clean and artfully designed, although quite small. Breakfast is great, too, but no meat. So buy meat from nearby stores if you like meat for breakfast. A highly recommended B&B near the Vatican!!!

Nice B&B only 10 minutes walk from the Vatican, and only 2 minutes walk to metro stop. Staff very helpful and spoke good English. In a quiet residential area, a little noisy when other guests come back as only 4 rooms so all share communal hallway.

The B&B was everything we expected and more. The only drawback was the fact they do not accept credit card payments and we were not told till we have arrived. Otherwise great. Would recommend.

I travelled to Rome in June 09 with my grandson. The Laocoonte B & B was excellent both in location and in the services provided. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. This B & B is about 15 minutes walk from the Vatican and 3 minutes from the metro which is simple to use as there are only 2 lines.

Very welcoming and excellent location 5 minutes from the Vatican Museums. Rooms are a little on the small side, but perfectly adequate. Very clean, fresh towels daily and hot shower! Breakfast was good, especially the coffee. Was first time in Rome, but would definitely recommend Lacoonte to friends and family.

Great value for your money. The B&B is in a residential building, so you will feel like a local. The room and bathroom were good-sized and sparkling clean. Breakfast is served in your room and eventhough is nothing more than coffee, croissants, toast, juice and yogurt, the quality is very good. The shower is on the smaller side, but I guess that's not surprising in Italy. The a/c was working perfectly, which was great because it was very hot in Rome during our stay. The free wi-fi is a very nice touch. We would definitely stay at Laooconte again.

It was very easy to find the place, we were welcomed very kindly. The room and bath were both really clean and they did the cleaning every day. Good location, very close to Vatican, easy access to metro, no problems with transportation. Our only problem was breakfast as we are not used to eating sweet things for beakfast every day and absolutely the same thing every morning. We would only change this one thing but otherwise this B&B was perfect for us. We felt safe and comfortable. Really nice place!

We enjoyed staying here. It's a small place with only about 5 rooms. The staff is excellent and the price is very good for Rome. There's no common area so they serve breakfast in the room, but it's a full breakfast, much better than the rolls and jam we got in some other places.

My husband and I were very pleased with our 4 day stay at Laocoonte B&B. Giordano and Josie, and the weekend staff person, were very helpful and provided superior service. The location, a few minutes away from the Vatican museum was excellent. Old Rome was within walking distance and the metro and bus routes were very close and convenient. Giordano arranged an airport pick up for us which worked well. We left our luggage until noon on our check out day. Everyone was so eager to please. All the recommended restaurants were excellent. Our room was clean and comfortable. We brought our lap top and enjoyed free wireless internet connection. This was very helpful as we googled directions to our days travel spots. We would highly recommend Laocoonte B&B to anyone wanting good private accommodation at a budget price in the wonderful city of Rome.

Apart from the name Laocoote B&B we written on the door bell to the apartment, there is now other indication where Laocoonte is. We struggled to find the place as we were looking for a signboard, which does no exists.
