Bed and Breakfast Italy

Hello... My husband and I are going to Italy this May, 2013. We are planning to stay at the Vatican Vista B&B for the first part of our visit the Peace of Rome for the second part based on the reviews we've gathered form Tripadvisory. Has anybody stayed in the these places and what are your reviews. Meantime, would you suggest a reasonably priced Hotel or B&B close to the termini? thanks...

Carol, A couple of Hotels you might consider in the Termini area are Hotel Sonya and Hotel Aberdeen. I've stayed in both and would highly recommend both. Happy travels!

Define "reasonably priced" in euros or dollars and you'll get better responses. After all, no one wants to stay in an "unreasonably" priced hotel. :-)

RonInRome.com has a list of suggested hotels in different Roman locales and at different prices. He has probably the best website on traveling to Rome and getting around the city.

Someone recommended that we stay at the Morgana Inn near Termini so my husband and I have a reservation there in July. It is very close to the station and the reviews were good on Trip Advisor. You will also get the best rate by booking directly through the hotel. We booked first through Priceline but then noticed the hotel offered a cheaper rate that also included breakfast. The Priceline Guarantee was a joke but we were able to cancel and book directly without penalty.

Hotel Sonya is our hotel of choice when in Rome for more than day. Great breakfasts but may not be as reasonable as you want. When passing through Rome we also use Hotel Contilla only a block from Termini out the south door and across the street from a self serve laundry. Breakfasts are so so. Both are three star hotels.

I am not a fan of the Termini area, and find its "convenience" overrated. Yes, it's a transit hub, but it's a bit scuzzy. And, if I'm catching a train, it's easy to get a cab from my hotel right to the station, which is more convenient than lugging my bags from a "close by" hotel. So, since you are already staying in two different hotels, I would not advise changing to a third one just to be close to Termini (if that was your reason for asking).

There is no reason to stay in two different accommodations during your time in Rome. Rome isn't that big. Pick one place. No reason to pack up and move all your stuff.

Agree with Harold! It's not worth it to me to stay a night to be close to Termini! I hate the neighborhood, and while there are a few bars close by to eat in, we walked a long ways to find a real restaurant. I now remain in my favorite neighborhood and since I have luggage, arrange transportation to the train for departure for the early am departure. "scuzzy" is an appropriate description of the area IMHO

Thank you for all the info. You have all been very helpful! We thought staying in a hotel near the termini on the second part of our visit would be a good idea, but after considering your inputs, we've decided to stay close to the Vatican instead. So finally, we booked our stay at the Vatican Vista prior to our cruise and a Peace of Rome when we get back from the cruise for this once in a lifetime trip. Both Rossana of VV and Simona of POR have been very accommodating in answering all our queries, and i am sure that we will be well taken care of when we get there.
Again, thank you so much:)
