We had a good size double room with en-suite facilities. It was spotlessly clean. The sink could perhaps do with a little upgrade. The kitchen facilities were excellent and although we didn't really use it much as we were only on a short stay, if staying longer would have been a very cost effective holiday with microwave, toaster,fridge, cooker etc. Ample supplies for a sweet breakfast although again we din't make full use of this. The owner contacted us when we booked so was there to greet us on our arrival which was before normal check in time. He gave us a map and explained everything. A little confusion regarding leaving our cases on last day, but this was sorted allowing us to leave our cases all day until we returned in the evening to then catch our flight. We were in fact given a key to let ourselves in as the owner does not live on site. Bit dissapointed on first view from outside, but inside was lovely and it grew on us. Perfect location being 20 minutes from the Colisseum. We were also able to catch the on off bus from here which was a brilliant way to see everything we wanted. Found several restaurants nearby at reasonable prices. I suppose it would have been nice to have a little lounge area but not a major issue on a short stay. All in all a lovely stay. We would return as it fully catered for our needs.

The host was very friendly, was a quiet and clean room , 7 minutes walk to Colosseum, the breakfast was good, if you like british breakfast this is not for you, metro station at 6 minutes walk. I recommend this facility! :)
Good b&b 15 minutes leisurely walk from Colosseum

My husband and I stayed at Urbi Et Orbi for 3 nights in the Acqua Marina double room. The room faces the courtyard, comprises of a very comfortable king size bed and an en suite bathroom. The b&b facilities are good. There is a communal kitchen for a "do it yourself" breakfast and dining/reception area. We were welcomed on our first day by the b&b owner Marco. He was very welcoming and showed us around the flat. Marco was kind enough to let us check in an hour and a half before the actual check in time, which was really nice and accommodating. The hotel is a 2 minutes walk from a supermarket and 15 minutes leisurely walk from the Colosseum.
The b&b has 4 bedrooms, two of which are en suits and two of which have private, "under the lock" bathrooms across the hall from the bedrooms. As above our room had an en suite. The bathroom was modern and clean. The shower cabin could benefit from a new seal but that is a very minor thing.
Small criticism for the b&b is that the breakfast bar missed some fruit juice and that the Acqua Marina room could definitely benefit from some new sleeping pillows.
We would definitely encourage people to stay at this b&b and will go back ourselves next time we're in Rome.
Great and helpful

I booked my stay with Marco but last minute had to cancel my holiday. Marco was so helpful and understanding. Helped me a lot in rescheduling and was very understanding. I will definitely be returning to book with him for my coming holiday.
Thank you Marco
The room was never cleaned only was organized. The owner seemed like a landlord, who at the very first day put restricti

The location is not good, it took almost 1 hour or half to reach the main attractions from this hotel. Although it has a beautiful kitchen, there are restrictions on using it. there is no buggy place, lift is very small if you are with stroller (buggy) and children. Room service is not up to the mark, we were there for 6 nights and they never cleaned the room or changed the bed sheet only organized the room. Only changed the towels once but toilet was also not cleaned in these 6 days!
