Convenient , Clean and Great Hospitality
Reviewed 27 December, 2019
We booked this B & B not knowing much about it. We lucked out. It’s a great stay for the price. The owner and her mother came and served continental breakfast each morning. Clean and comfortable stay, only a four minute walk from the Vatican Museum entrance and food options.
Amazing People Work This Hotel

Let me tell you a story:
We are three Americans traveling to Rome for the first time. Our flight was delayed over 17 hours, which meant instead of 9am we were arriving at the hotel around 2 am. Now, we didn't have cell service only wifi. We let them know we would be late and they said it would be a 20 euro late fee (we would claim this to the airline anyway, but still, we needed to get into the hotel. Well to get to the hotel our preorder ride cancelled on us at 1 am. So we took a black taxi (now we know black taxis are not regulated, take white ones!) and arrived at the hotel to a sleepy, but cheerful worker. As we got settled into the room, my cousin came to the scary realization that she left a bag in the taxi... With her passport. Thankfully she still had her wallet. Two people (and a wife) from this hotel somehow managed to track down the cab driver, meet him on the highway that night to get that darn bag back to us by to the next morning.
If that story alone doesn't inspire you to stay here: rooms were clean, staff was friendly, ac, free WiFi, and safe hotel.
Wonderful place to stay!

Maria Gloria, Her Husband and Daughter Erica, couldn't be nicer or more caring. The room is in a wonderful location and a five minute walk from the Metro. There is a small market nearby for convenience and it's a two minute walk to the Vatican Museum entrance. Previous complaints stated it was near the noisy road. There are shutters on the window that roll down with the touch of a button and helps to drown out any street noise. I didn't find it anymore noisy than any other city. I was there for 10 full days and nights and the family worked hard to make certain your stay was okay and all your needs were met. Breakfast was perfect with a sweet cornetti and toast, as well as juice and the coffee was delicious! I couldn't ask for more. The bed is comfortable, the room is quite large and very sweet. I will use this wonderful establishment again and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else! Highly recommend. I felt more like visiting family than a guest. Also it was a safe area for a single woman traveler to be out at night in. That is always a plus! I stayed there for 10 full days.
Highly recommend this B&B

Excellent value for money B&B. Much cheaper and more highly rated on Trip Advisor than other options we looked at, especially those closer to the Colosseum.
The staff were helpful, friendly and couldn't do enough for you. The breakfast was lovely - traditional Italian with meat cheese, toast and pastries.
The room was spacious and incredibly clean, with good, basic facilities. Ideal if you, like us, plan on spending very little time in the room. We did find the mattress a little firm but of course that is just personal preference.
The location was excellent - just 500m away from the entrance to the Vatican Museum. However it was still quiet and felt very safe and secure. It's also just a short walk from a street with restaurants and a small supermarket. Taxis to the centre of Rome (Colosseum etc.) are fairly cheap and there is also a Metro station around the corner from the B&B. However we chose to walk into the centre which took about 40 minutes.
I would also recommend using the airport transfer service the B&B offer for a flat rate of 45€ each way - we used this for our flights which were at unsociable hours and found it was much cheaper than taking an Über or taxi, both of which cost around 60€ each way. On arrival the driver was waiting in arrivals with a sign and dropped us right by the door for departures on the way back.
Overall our stay at Difronte Ai Musei Vaticani was excellent. I'd highly recommend it to everybody looking for a good, clean, basic hotel to return to after action-packed days exploring Rome!
Fabulous 4 days stay
