For My Friends B&B is a very nice place with plenty of room. We stayed in the unit with the loft as our adult son was traveling with us. The loft had reduced head room but was not a problem for him. Matilda was very accommodating as we were not able to check-in until around midnight and requested an early...

INNKEEPER’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 October 2016 via mobile

We stayed at Matilde " Peacock Garden Apartment" Fantastic!! it was everything we were looking for space, privacy, and very well furnished. It was a joy to deal with Matilde. We also viewed her "Formyfriendsbnb" it also was very nice if you are looking for just a bedroom with ensuite, it also has a garden but not private as such.

This B&B is located in a wonderful location in Rome. It is very close to the Vatican and the metro, but it's located on a quiet street. Our room was large, spotless, and decorated very nicely. The owner, Matilde, was very kind and accommodating. She was very helpful with recommending places to eat and things to do while we visited....

Excellent accommodation in great location. Matilde was very helpful and a great host. When I ran out of cash, she brought credit card swipe machine next day, advised on which hotel to go for food and negotiated best price for our taxi drop to airport in the early hour 3am. Value for money and getting to know Matilde, gem of...

I have stayed in over 20 hotels and B&Bs in Italy during the past three years, and by far the best is For My Friends B&B in Rome. It is especially well-located, 10 minutes walk from the Vatican and 4 minutes away from the metro line that takes visitors to most of the major sights in the city. The apartment...

Whether this is your first visit to Rome, your 10th, or anyplace in between, this should be your first consideration for a B&B. Simply put, you could not find a better place to stay in central Rome.

Matilde's place was exactly what we needed for our visit in Rome. A lot of thought has obviously gone into the furnishings and decoration, we loved the art work in the breakfast room.

Staying in Prati

Neighbourhood Profile
Prati
Just steps away from the chaos of the centre, Prati is the closest Rome gets to calm. Meticulously planned in a neat grid, quite unlike neighbouring Borgo, Prati is a local favourite for its aesthetic organisation and wide streets lined with a range of boutiques for every shopping fantasy. Nonnis pushing baby carriages and gossiping teens own every inch of the sidewalk, but that’s only during business hours. Once the sun sets, quirky sidestreet bars celebrate aperitivo hour, those evening cocktails that help wash away the tensions of Roman life.
