Named after the owner's 2 Italian grandmothers (Maria from Veneto and Rosa from Puglia), Maria-Rosa Guesthouse is a bed & breakfast situated on the 3rd floor of a newly renovated 19th century building in the historic neighborhood of Trastevere. A charming and vibrant medieval quarter in the historic center of Rome, Trastevere is famous for its calm quaintness during the day and being a lively hotspot at night, with one of Rome's most acclaimed selection of restaurants, cafes, and bars.

From the B&B, guests can enjoy Rome completely on foot. A short walk across the Tiber Island and the Ponte Fabricio (the oldest Roman bridge still in use, dated 62 BC) takes you to the nearby ancient Ghetto area, the Marcello Theater, and the Michelangelo's Piazza, as well as the more famous Campo dei Fiori, Piazza Navona, and the Pantheon.

Within walking distance of Maria-Rosa there is also a daily fruit and vegetable market, a supermarket, an international newsstand, and a tourist office.

The owner, Sylvie, a friendly young French woman who also speaks fluent English and Italian, has had many years of experience in tourism and knows how to make her guests feel welcome and at home. She's always ready to answer questions and is happy to suggest the best things to see and do in Rome to help her guests enjoy their stay to the fullest. She offers all guests a free map of Rome and free guide to the area; additionally, photos, and postcards of her own black-and-white photography of Rome are available for purchase.

Simple but welcoming accommodation. In the heart of the Trastevere neighborhood, you experience the genuine Rome atmosphere and feel a bit into a Fellini movie. Don't expect any luxury but the rooms are spacious and clean, the shared bathroom is small but acceptable. The location is a bit off the main Metro routes, but you can walk to many historical locations in 20 min, and you have nearby many of the most typical bars and restaurants in the city. For the price they ask it is an excellent bargain. ------- Sistemazione semplice ma accogliente. Nel cuore del quartiere Trastevere, permette di sperimentare la vera atmosfera Romana e di sentirsi un po' in un film di Fellini. Non vi aspettate niente di lussuoso ma le stanze sono pulite e spaziose, il bagno è piccolo ma accettabile. La posizione è un po' lontana dalle stazioni della Metro ma in 20 minuti si possono raggiungere a piedi varie attrazioni storiche, e le vicinanze sono ricche di bar e ristoranti tipici. Per il prezzo richiesto è un ottimo affare.

I was greeted by the two kindest souls in Roma, Jean and Francoise! This lovely couple stayed up and waited for me when my flight came in at around midnight. Would love to stay there again!

Slyvie was very nice in greeting me even though I arrived late because my flight was delayed. The room was very nice and the traveler's guide and map she gave me was really helpful. It was definitely a nice stay and I wish I would have stayed there longer.

Nice apartment / guest house. Sylvie was great and provided a great overview of Rome. The rooms were clean and well maintained. The location is quiet but centrally located (walking distance to everything in Rome). The guest house/apartment is up 4 flights of stairs; this is not an issue for myself, but could be for others. Lack of a/c was fine as Rome tends to be cool in the evenings.

Sylvie was very welcoming and simpatico. Pleasant and interesting neighborhood, lovely and artistic decorating, roomy, comfortable -- fairly convenient bus connections to other parts of Rome. We would definitely stay there again! The bar Sylvie recommended around the corner had wonderful breakfast options and you could even sit down without paying a cover charge. There is no lift, so stairs might be an issue for older and/or handicapped. Otherwise, superb hostess, facilities and location.

Lovely, central in the characteristic Trastevere district, adapt expecially for couples. I liked very much Silvie's photos on the walls and the feeling of "warm" of the guesthouse. Sylvie is very friendly :) .

Maria-Rosa was beyond my expectations in terms of guide materials and good advice on Rome, exhibitions, restaurants, where to go and when. Tough climb to the third floor. Not for disabled or weak people with a lot of luggage...

sylvie is the most helpful host you could ask for. her directions for getting there from the airport were excellent (in fluent english), her recommendations for food and drink in trastevere totally reliable and always good value, and her hints on how to get the most out of Rome were always on the mark. the guest house is in the perfect spot: groovy, convenient and fun. very comfortable beds, good bathroom - it's all there. and sylvie makes it all that much better. we only had a short time but we would not hesitate to recommend this guest house to family and friends, and will certainly stay there again when we return to this wonderful city.
