We had such a great stay in Spleeping Beauty. We would recommend it to everyone who is looking for a nice (and at a good price) place well served by public transportation. The owners were very welcoming, very kind and helpful because they gave us useful tips to make the most of our city tour. Our room was absolutely clean, quite spacious, with an in-room bathroom, in-room refrigerator, hair dryer, air conditioning and safe deposit box. Thank you very much for making our stay in Rome so pleasant.

Great place to stay! Conveniently accessible via Metro from the train station, only a 20-30min walk to attractions such as the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, etc. Reception staff was extremely helpful, great English, eager to answer any questions. Rooms were very clean, comfortable, spacious, and the shared bathroom was kept quite clean.

After college graduation myself and two other girls planned a Europe trip including a five day visit to Rome. This accomodation was fantastic because of the near by metro station and Colesseum within walking distance. Very welcoming and friendly staff. I would definitely come back again.

We loved our stay at Sleeping Beauty in Rome. We were welcomed and settled in quickly and they were always so helpful with everything we needed. They cleaned our room each day and made sure we had everything we needed. We had made a last minute decision to visit our daughter who is studying abroad and they allowed her to come and go from our room and freely visit with us without charging any extra person fees. They truly made us feel like this was our home away from home.

This is nice place to stay in Rome. We stayed here together with our 6 y.o. son and were able to walk to Coliseum easily. Also we walked from Termini to the hotel. The neighbourhood is quite. Metro is not 100m, but still close. The rooms are clean, but there was some strange smell in our room (probably because of the bath we had). The reception is very welcoming. Enjoyed the stay

It was very nice and a good value, but "private" bathroom and "in room" bathroom don't always match up.

My son (43 years ago) and I spent April 6 through April 13, 2009) at the Sleeping Beauty. We were met at the door by Alfred, who during our stay was more like a brother than an innkeeper. I injured my back on Easter Sunday, April 12, and was in great pain and had to cut our trip short. Alfred lat us stay an additional day beyond our reservation, and at a reduced price, so that we would not have to find another place to stay before returning home (I had to be moved by wheel chair both at Fiumicino and Newark, and lay stretched out over three seats on the plane home). Alfred was genuinely concerned for me, and could not have been a more gracious or kind host. We were looking for a clean, comfortable and reasonable place to stay, and certainly found it at the Sleeping beauty, located between the churches of St. John in the Lateran and the Holy Cross in Jerusalem. It does not have all the amenities of a large hotel, but for two men provided all we needed, including free Wi-Fi. It is close to a Metro station and taxi stand, and within easy walking distance of the Coliseum, even for me at 75 years. Several good restaurants are nearby, and the area is relatively quiet. I have visited Rome about 80 times, having stayed at many different lodgings, and the Sleeping Beauty, along with the Villa del Parco, is at the top of my list. I recommend it unhesitatingly.

We had a wonderful experience here, the owner / employees are very nice and conversational and willing to help as much as they can. We stayed a week in Rome and I definitely recommend it. We walked by the Coliseum almost daily from this location.
