    Inconvenient location and facility
    on Oct 18, 2018
    I was so misled by all the 5 star reviews and booked this B&B for one night and that is quite disppointing. First it is in a very old building at a backstreet of a road far off to the city center. There is just a bus station 7 mins walk but we dont have the ticket yet. It seems impossible to catch a taxi anywhere near this B&B so we have to call Uber. Though the owner is trying to make the stay satisfying but the facility is too out o date and cramped. The bathroom is independent meaning you have to pass the public aisle for a shower or toillet. there is a thick smell everywhere in the B&B like some kind of unpleasant cologne. Given the overall experience, the price is quite reasonable or even higher. ... More

    A very good choice when in Rome!
    on Oct 14, 2018
    Mr Marco and Simon are great hosts, very helpful and kind. The double room, Aqua Marina, was very clean, daily cleaning, with a spacious private bathroom and lovely decoration, with a touch from Simon, a wonderful painting. They offer a sweat breakfast coffees, marmelade and toast, but if you want something else there is a kitchen to even prepare a meal. Near the facility there is a super market. It is close to the metro station 5minutes and to the Colosseum 10-15minutes. We highly recommend Urbi et Orbi if you visit Rome. Mille Grazie Despoina and Evangelos ... More

    Short stay
    on Sep 23, 2017
    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.... More

    Good b&b 15 minutes leisurely walk from Colosseum
    on Jun 23, 2017
    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. ... More
