The room I got has a bathroom separated and accesable through the common dining room. It was a basement and I find it very uncorrect to not indicate such a information during booking. It was honestly much too expensive than it deserves.

Well,it is the smallest bed & breakfast hotel ever seen; only 3 rooms, but charming athmosphere in the "underground" no windows or daylight; it's more a private house or youthhostel atmosphere than a hotel. People must know that. Breakfast has to be prepared by clients! Modest but rooms equipped like a 2star hotel.

Came in Rome for a weekend , had a marvellous stay at B&B Double B, in a very spacy double room with all facilities, own bathroom & toilet, room breakfast is very large, very clean and well kept, clean towels every day, bed made. Friendly welcome, possibility of leaving the luggage the last day for visiting, it was just perfect, and not expensive. Same price as a youth hostel, but comfort of a hotel, just great!

Great air conditioning also, perfect to relax after a big day in Rome!The B&B is located just 10 minutes walking to the Colosseum and from there you are within 20 minutes walking in the centre of Rome.So, I do recommande this B&B where we had a pleasant time.

I would recommend Double B to anyone that would like contemporary, clean accommodation in Rome when a lot of Italian hotels can feel antiquated. The attention to detail in the rooms is high, perfect if you want to enjoy a lie in before heading out to explore Rome. Location was excellent, just up the road from the Colosseo... we taxied to the hotel from the airport and all the sights we in walking distance. If you want to spend time sat in a hotel lobby and have the big corporate/chain hotel feel, Double B not for you, but if you want an intimate setting, a personal touch, with a clean room this is the place to stay. Couples of all ages will appreciate this b&b.

I've stayed in Rome a few times and I have to say this was one of the better times from an accomodation standpoint. Rome is strictly a tourist destination and the restaurants and bars and sights are all designed to gouge as much out of the traveler as possible- I'd say with the exception of the Double B! Staff is absolutely wonderful, extremely accomodating and we had a wonderful stay. I was traveling with my best friend and for two young women to stay in Rome- this place is great. It was spotless, spacious, quiet, safe, and relaxing and the price we paid was extremely reasonable. I'd stay there again definitely and would recommend it! (Bonus- air conditioning and wifi in the rooms!!!)

We had a wonderful stay at the Double B. Valerio, the owner, was there to greet us and provided us with a map of Rome as well as a few suggested sites and routes to take. The hotel was very clean with coffee and tea always available. Breakfast was very convenient. I would highly recommend this hotel. It is located on a quieter street near the metro station MANZONI with two good restaurant just a few steps outside the building.

This is a great place to stay. It was just center of the city , still close enough to the Colosseum and the metro station. The owner was extremely nice and helpful.The B&B is really nice and it is in a very nice area. I would absolutely reccommend it to anyone. We had a double room ,the bed was quite comfortable, and shared a bathroom, which was never a problem. The place is very well kept and conveniently located for all of the major sites. We would definately stay there again.

Don't book this hotel , or cancel as soon as possible. You may wait for 30 minutes in front of the door. They are very arrogant and no respect for guests. Non prenotate! Totalmente inaffidabile e arrogante. Potreste trovarvi ad aspettare mezzora davanti alla porta chiusa, senza nessun motivo e senza scuse da parte dell'albergo. Da evitare! Passa parola!

Absolutely wonderful! The owners were pleasant, welcoming, and charming. Upon check-in, they spoke very good English and we were able to communicate very effectively. They were extremely helpful in showing us around Rome as well. The three rooms were all very spacious, clean and decorated beautifully. The only downside is that you could hear talking from the common area in our room, but it wasn't excessively loud. It was wonderful having a kitchen to use. Would definitely stay here again!!

The Location is not bad the only thing is that it is kinda hard to find.. we were 3 so we took the room with one big bed and a full size bed, the big bed was okay but the full size bed was squeaky and we could here every move the third person made. the breakfast provided is not really a breakfast it more of a chocolate twinkie, toast, old fruit, and coffee. early in the morning you can hear a dog come to your window and bark for a good 20min . if they change the full size bed and provided a good breakfast I would stay here again. Staff is helpful.

We met at our arrival with the person in charge of the management of the room but that is it. That is far to be a B&B as we may imagine in an other country since nobody was living there, we had no contact with the local population and that was a bit a pity.The rooms are in an underground, fresh and dark.

It was my first time staying at the Double B on my 4th trip to Rome. I will stay there again. It was great having a kitchen, and tho there were no views being on the basement level, it was quiet, a rarity in Rome. Valerio was very helpful with local information and the location was excellent, close to the Metro and a short walk to the Colosseum, the Termini Stazione, Santa Maria Maggiore and a wonderful park called Giardini Emanuel Vittorio. I was there in Feb, off season, and I think it was the best deal in Rome price-wise and for what you got. Grazie per tutti!

This B&B have not a reception, so when I arrived I had to phone the staff for enter (and I had to wait outside for about 15 minutes, while it was raining!) Rooms are underground (plane -1) I suppose in summer time that could be a problem. Outside the window of my room there was a dog who make some noise, but luckly not for long. Anyway this B&B is very clear, with a lot of public space; there is a plenty breakfast and staff is very kind. I feel to reccomend it

The hotel is in a quiet street that looks a bit dodgy but we didn't have any problems at night. The manager doesn't stay on the premises after 9pm, so when we arrived at 9.10pm, we had to call him and wait 20 mins for him to get there and let us in. The rooms were very nice! The shower got a bit cold though. The common area was nice too. There is free internet, but you have to ask for the password. The manager didn't carry any change when we paid on check-in, so we had to leave a couple of Euro on the bed when we left. Over all, the place was nice, not far from the Colleseum and Termini Station (20 mins walk). Breakfast could have been better. I may stay again, if I can get there before 9pm!

Rooms small but just about OK for sleeping. Very warm in communal area & bedrooms. A/C not working properly or not adjusted low enough. Breakfast poor. Had to make own coffee, tea, etc. Food was dry biscuits with expired sell-by date, butter & jams plus small cakes. We bought rolls & croissants in shops around the corner. All in all not good value for money. Yes, you can stay here, but for not more than €50/room & night.

Muy bien situado, a unos 10 minutos del Coliseum a pie y al lad de una parada de metro. Recomiendo llamar a Valerio cuando se llegue a Roma porque no suele estar, y no aparece por alli casi ni para cobrar.

In una sola parola: il MEGLIO!! ho viaggiato molto nella mia vita e devo dire che difficilmente si incontra tanta gentilezza, cordialità e simpatia. Abbiamo alloggiato per 4 giorni e ci siamo trovati divinamente! E' assolutamente consigliato sia per la posizione strategica (si raggiunge tranquillamente qualunque zona di Roma) sia per l'altissima qualità del servizio....se poi ci mettete pure il prezzo davvero conveniente allora correte a prenotare! Inoltre le stanze erano sempre pulitissime, così come l'area pubblica per la colazione....Internet sempre gratis....indicazioni molto cordiali e disponibilità assoluta del proprietario (GRANDE VALERIO!!!). Insomma, come ho già detto, il meglio che potete trovare a Roma! Se dovessi tornare nella città eterna,alloggerei senza ombra di dubbio nuovamente al Double Bed.... Consigliato a tutti,sia viaggiatori singoli, sia coppie e gruppi! IN ASSOLUTO IL NUMERO UNO!

Difficult property to review. Things we liked about it: room was spacious & clean, reasonable price & internet use included. The location was excellent for our needs; close to the Manzoni Metro stop which is only a couple of stops from train station, making it easy to get around the city. No one stays on the premises so it is necessary to contact Valerio to let him know when you are arriving. We called to announce our arrival & he agreed to meet us. But when we got there, no one answered the door bell. We called him again & he said he would be right over. We waited, no Valerio. Finally a woman from another B&B on the upper floor opened the door & let us into Double B&B & showed us our room. She spoke little English so we weren't sure when breakfast was served or if it was self service. No instruction on how to use the unfamiliar coffee maker. Valerio did show up the next morning & he is very pleasant, but when we informed him we would be paying by credit card, (it states clearly on the Venere web site that credit cards are accepted)he stated he does not have a credit card machine & we needed to pay with cash. As we were having some problems with ATM cash withdrawal, this was a potential problem. We did not see or hear from him again until we had to contact him to arrange to pay him the morning of our departure. We had a train to catch & needed to pay cash, so we had to call him the night before to ask him to come in time to give him the payment & get a receipt. He suggested we just leave the cash, which we were unwilling to do. He finally said he would have a friend, Giovanni come over at 7:30am to take the payment. 7:30 came and went, no Giovanni. We were getting ready to send Valerio an email stating we would send payment when we got home, when Giovanni & Valerio showed up, so we paid & rushed to get our train. Bottom line: if Valerio was more of a presence on the property & they followed their stated credit card policy, review would have been better

It was first difficult to check in - we waited for a while and then had to find a pay phone to call someone who called someone else (non-english speaking) to give us a key to our room. After leaving to explore the city we came back to find that the key did not work to our room but we were able to get into the building so we spent the night on the tiled floor of the kitchen/common area. The next morning we were able to contact Valerio who told us there was a trick to opening the lock of which nobody had previously informed us. The only reason why I stayed there was because he agreed to let us change to another room with a fully working lock. Therefore, I can evaulate two (of four) rooms: very spacious but neither room had air conditioning, both shower heads were broken, and breakfast was not served by anyone (croissants and biscuits were on the table but coffee had to be prepared by yourself). It was a horrible first experience but okay in the end because Valerio was very apologetic and tried to fix the situation. In general, not worth the location and price in comparison to other venere.com reservations.

Sehr gute Lage, eigenes Bad, Zimmer o.k.: Preis-Leistungsverhältnis gut! Die Zimmer waren relativ frisch renoviert und sehr sauber, allerdings im Souterrain gelegen und ein wenig Schimmel an den Wänden. Auch war das Zimmer für 3 Personen etwas klein. Insgesamt gibt es nur 3 Zimmer. Der Frühstücksraum hat kein Fenster und dementsprechend schlecht war die Luft. Das Frühstück bestand aus Kaffee und portionsweise abgepacktem Zwieback und Marmelade, entspricht damit aber wohl dem üblichen Standard. Man kann auch eigene Sachen im Kühlschrank deponieren. Das Haus liegt in einer Wohngegend in einer ruhigen Seitenstrasse nur 15 Minuten Fußweg zum Colosseum und 3 Minuten zur Metro. Die Lage ist also unschlagbar. Valerio und die Putzfrau (?) waren sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und konnten gute Tipps geben.

We spend one week in Roma, the place is fine and convenient (close to a subway station). The staff is very friendly and the rooms are clean, spacious with individual bathroom as depicted in the venere.com website. Valerio is kind and there was no problem to let our luggages in the flat, so we can enjoy fully our last day in Roma before leaving. Very good quality/price ratio for a B&B in ROMA.

The BnB is a three bedroom flat on the lower ground floor of an early 20th century Roman house. It is about 150m from Manzoni metro station (line A) and other buses within 5min walk (watch out for falling oranges from the trees!). All rooms lead onto the central breakfast area. Guests are not meant to use the kitchen themselves, but we could use it to warm up the milk for our little girl's bottle. Our triple room was large, well decorated (mix of contemporary and original brickwork) and spotless. Our return flight was in the end of the afternoon, and Valerio kindly gave us a key so that we could leave our luggage and collect it in the afternoon. Breakfast was good though some butter would have been nice ;o). We have already recommended this location to friends thinking about a Rome trip.

I can fully recommend it. The rooms are clean, not luxury but we did not need for 4 days and service corresponding to expectations. BB is close to any transport lines and also to historical places and in the spring it was rather quiet place for sleeping.

This was a great place to stay! It was near the metro, but off the noisy street, away from traffic. The host, Valerio, was very helpful and friendly. You do have to make sure he knows when you are coming, because it would not be easy to find by yourself. The rooms were very clean! The free internet was great! The breakfast was simple, but fresh, and that seems to be the case in most of the B&B's I read about in Rome. The rooms were near the kitchen, so in the am the noise from there was kind of loud, but they did not start early so it was fine. We went back there after a week of traveling, and it was very nice to return. It exceeded our expectations, and we will highly recommend it to others!

Vam arribar per la nit, a la 1h, i un shuttle ens esperava a l'aeroport. Ens va deixar a la porta del B&B i al cap de pocs minuts va arribar en Valerio, que ens va explicar el funcionament del B&B i va respondre les nostres preguntes sobre la ciutat (transport, horaris, lleure). L'allotjament està molt be. Son 3 habitacions ben equipades. Nosaltres vam tenir sort perquè vam ocupar 2 habitacions i a la tercera hi havia una família molt tranquil·la. Crec que si els companys haguessin estat sorollosos, l'experiència hagués estat menys agradable. La zona bé. Tranquil·la i ben comunicada. L'esmorzar just, però al costat hi ha un forn amb un pa bonísim!

Double Bed was wonderful place to stay. Every positive review I read here was true and actually even better!! The host was super nice and very welcoming. He kindly answer all our questions and helped us with how to get around the city. Restraunts and shops he recommended were abusolutely great, and we were very happy to experience non-touristy places. The breakfasts the host prepared for us were beautiful. He even packed us breakfast for the last morning since we had to catch early train. How wonderful is that! Definately recommend.

Estuvimos 4 dias en octubre y nos gusto mucho. Todo esta reformado de Ikea. El desayuno un poco flojo. Hay muchos mosquitos en las habitaciones y un perro del vecino que ladra a partir de las 7:00am. El metro realmente esta al girar la esquina. El dueño (Valerio) muy bien, menos una tarde que se trajo a los amigos y estuvieron de cachondeo en la zona comun. Puedes coger variedad de bebidas y comida a un precio bastante razonable. En definitiva, calidad-precio OK.

Once we found the place, Valerio was welcoming and helpful with directions and made some great recommendations for restaurants and shopping etc. However, our room was really in a basement with the window just at street level. There was no fan or A/C so we had to leave the window open for everyone to see in as it was hot. It is a noisy street with motorbikes and pedestrians. This problem could easily be overcome if a ceiling fan was installed. The owner said he would leave some food for us for breakfast because he doesnt serve until 8.30am which is quite late for a day touring Rome but didnt so we had to buy it elsewhere. Some other guests were party goers and came in at all hours drunk and noisy. I think this would be suited to young couples and singles who sleep in late.

We stayed 8-13 September 2007 and the Manzoni Metro was still closed. Shame as it was just round the corner. The rooms were nice enough and clean but all the doors really could do with some WD40! Also the flushing noise from the bathroom next door and barking dogs meant no sleeping in, which is useful if you have to get up early to see the sights or catch a plane!

This was our first stay at Double B and we selected it after reviewing the previous ratings on the venere site. We are fairly independant travelers, have stayed in B&Bs before and know not to expect the accommodations or service you would get from a hotel but always enjoyed the experience. We consider our stay at Double B to be one of the WORST travel experiences we have ever encountered. We never saw the owner / host until the last day when we called and insisted he come to the site so we could pay him. We called him on our arrival since the place was locked and had to wait 30 min until a cleaning person arrived to let us in then had to wait almost an hour for our room to be cleaned. In the interim a very nice friend of the owner showed up and gave us our keys. The air conditioning did not work and the temps were in the 80 to 90 range. There was NO breakfast provided and a sign in the common area indicated we were not to use the kitchen on our own. It was very noisy as our room shared a common wall with a bakery next door whose employees would arrive around 3 AM to start preparations and baking. I would not recommend this B&B to anyone!

We found the place quite difficult to find but once we got oriented it was fine. The room was smaller then we had hoped but the bathroom was fine. Breakfast was not good at all and most mornings it was late. One evening we got to the B&B and there were no towels left for us and that was very annoying. We were in Rome for a week and met some nice people there but I am not sure I would stay there again.

We arrived in the mid evening as scheduled and could not get an answer at the door, had to go to another much more expensive hotel down the street after waiting 2 hours. Next day we got a key to room and they actually tried to charge for the night I didn't stay. The other guests were loud and appeared to be having parties all the time, kitchen was not to be used yet the others did use it .. ALOT. Small attempt to speak our language , although all correspondence was in our language ( english ). Breakfast consisted of just bread , jellies and coffee, second morning they were 1/2 hour late so we couldn't eat as we had a plane to catch. No offers of help were ever made such as a ride to train for airport , suggestions to good eating places, tours ... nothing. It appeared that if you spoke the language you got much better treatment. Never met owner, although he was referred to alot. All rules were broken by other guests. My shampoo was even stolen when the room was cleaned ! A very disappointing stay. The subway station closest to hotel is closed for renovations but that was never mentioned even after I specifically asked about it before arriving. That is a big deal when trying to follow directions to get to this hotel. Awful stay !!! We would never go back to Rome and most definetly not this bed and breakfast!

This was my first trip to Rome and it helped that I had a wonderful place to come back to by the end of the day. Valerio was absolutely wonderful and the room and community area was so cozy. Sadly, our metro stop was closed for renovations, but it is literally right around the corner. There are two others about a ten minute walk away. If you're used to these "walking" cities like Rome and Paris, ten minutes is nothing. I definitely recommend this b&b for its coziness and hospitality.

we stayed at this b&b during April. when we got to the place there was no one there to meet us. we had to call from a nearby hotel and remind the host we are coming. close by there is a metro station but it was under construction, which was inconvenient. the room was very pleasant, apart from some construction noise from the adjacent building in the morning. the place has a computer connected to the internet which was very convenient. on our last day we had to leave very early in the morning. we asked the host to call arange for a taxi to wait for us (the taxi was a nice black lauxury car, and a well dressed driver). while we stayed in this place we didn't wait for the breakfast to be served, but made our own, using food we bought from a nearby supermarket/ this place is pretty simple compared to it's price and to other b&bs in italy.

When we arrived, there was a problem with our room (no hot water...) so the owner accompanied us to another bed and breakfast which was very noisy (the tram )and not very clean. The next day, we had to move back to the other one which was very good quality in a quiet street. We got a reduce price for the problems. The room is very clean and spacious with tv and a big bathroom. We thought breakfast was too light with no juice and not enough to eat.

This was an excellent place to stay. It's actually a basement apartment which isn't clear on the website. It has 3 rooms - 2 double beds, 1 double + single, and 1 double bed. Everything in it is brand new Ikea, very 'chic' and clean. It also has internet access in the central breakfast room for free. It's in a convenient place for moving around Rome, just 2 Metro stops from the Terminus station. Manzoni station is just at the bottom of the road, but was closed for major refurbishment while we were there which meant a 15m walk to the next Metro stop. Directions to the apartment are rather vague. If you stand outside the Snack Bar on the main intersection between V.Emmanuel Filiberto and V.Manzoni cross the road and go up the street opposite (V. Quintino?) V. Vittorio Amadeo II is 1/2 way up on the left. Valerio the young owner is very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was a bit late at 8.30 if you want to get out to beat the queues and we self-served quite a few times. We would recommend it for very good value. Thank you Venere.

I was slightly concerned about booking a room at Double B because of the lack of reviews but I took a chance and am glad I did. Valerio, our host, was waiting outside for us and warmly greeted us. He gave us a map of the city and circled all of the spots worth visiting. He even showed me where good hang out spots for young people were. Another resident staying there expressed that she got head-aches when drinking italian coffee and he offered to buy her decaffinated coffee for the next morning. Staying there is more like staying at an apartment. There are three rooms that share a common area with free internet access and a mini fridge to store your items. You are given three keys, one to the front door of the building, one to the apartment, and one to your room, so you can come and go as you please. Check out is about 11 but when I expressed to him that my group wanted to go out dancing that night he allowed us to check out later the next day. You will only see Valerio twice a day, once in the morning for breakfast and in the evening. He tries to accomodate your needs as much as possible. The beds were firm and comfortable and the bathrooms modern and clean. My group was very impressed with the lodging I booked through venere.com. I will stay here again when I come to Rome.
