Obelus B&B
Ranked #930 of 3,763 Rome B&B and Inns
Reviewed 17 July 2012

Recently spent 2 nights in Rome, after a week in Tuscany. We (2 adults + 3 children) stayed in Obelus B&B. Ours was a self contained apartment, with great facilities including fully fitted kitchen with basic food items, washing machine, air-con,3 flat screen tvs, dvd player,laptop and wifi! Easily accommodates 6 people. While it may have been difficult to locate, Monika was watching out for us and met us on the street and brought us around corner to a real 'roman' apartment. She was extremely helpful and welcoming, and spent a lot of time familiarizing us with the area and attractions. We were able to make tea & coffee immediately which was very welcome. There were small shops & bakery just a few doors away. Many decent restaurants close by. Less than 1km from Colosseum where we took a hop on hop off bus tour of the city.

We got married in Rome precisely 25 years ago and decided to return to "the scene of the crime" (this time with 3 grown-up children!) to celebrate the occasion. Rome was as expected; fantastic weather, a lot of tourists and it really felt like coming back to something very familiar!

Hotel Obelus and the staff made this a very pleasant stay (we booked all rooms for the stay); clean, nice breakfast, excellent air condition, very good communication with the Metro close by (cool transport appreciated when the temperature ranged from 29 to 36 C) and the very friendly staff that made us breakfast every morning before our sightseeing.

Highly recommended!

Tomas with family

Recently stayed in this bb...but, from the many bbs ive stayed in in some cities/towns across 4 months of recent travels in Italy and some parts of Europe, i would probably class this establishment as a apartment...not really a bb in what i deem a bb from my experience has provided me before... Breakfast ok...and two monikas both helpful ......

Nevertheless, if u are looking for a clean apartment to stay in whilst u visit Rome, then this is a good option...it is very close to subway station...and to colesum and all other close attractions...
Good area of the city.....close to bars/shops etc....

Also the owners changed from when i booked in..and i was not notified at all until just a week before arrival.......so some information that i was given by the previous owners in relation to the bb, was completely different to what the new owners provided......so, just something i will always keep in mind, if i ever decide to travel back to Europe again...

This was our second stay at the Obelus and I'm happy to say it was just as enjoyable as the first. The B&B is charming with nice rooms and a friendly atmosphere. Monika was particularly helpful and seemed genuinely interested in her guests. The location is ideal for walking to the Coliseum and Forum, and there are plenty of good places to eat nearby. We tried the Isidore, which was recommended by Monika and the Dome Rock cafe on the corner, and enjoyed both.

Thanks to Monika and Pierdavide for a great stay in Rome. They were very helpful, breakfast was good and the B & B very clean and homelike. It is located near the Coliseum and next to St. Giovanni Laterno and was convenient walking distance to subway and train stations.
