“A small B&B run by an American-Italian couple, a brief stroll from the Forum and Piazza Venezia. The friendly managers offer good-sized rooms, all en suite with air conditioning and central heating.”

Lonely Planet

“This sunny B&B is at the bottom of noisy Via Cavour, a stone’s throw from the Imperial Forums. Run by a welcoming young couple, it has four big guest rooms, each of which boasts homely furnishings with wrought-iron beds, colourful pictures and a large bathroom. For such a central place it’s also remarkably quiet, and has a long line of satisfied customers.”

The Guardian – 10 of the best pensiones in Rome

Located in Monti, an ancient red-light district turned trendy neighbourhood, the Nicolas Inn also happens to be a stone’s throw from the Forum and Colosseum. But the pensione, opened in 2004, is more than just convenient. The four cute, clean rooms each have king-sized beds, individual air-conditioning, and roomy bathrooms. The biggest sell, though, is the warm welcome from the owners, Chicago native Melissa and her Italian-Lebanese, six-language-speaking husband Francois. The two go out of their way for guests, whether helping them grab medicine at the pharmacy or highlighting the best spots for an al fresco drink on their map.

Only 4 blocks from the Colosseum, this small B&B is also convenient for exploring the Roman Forum. In a warm, cozy atmosphere, a few guests are housed on the second floor of an early 20th century building. Rich fabrics and cherry colored wood make this hotel a winner, that and its comfortably furnished midsize to spacious bedrooms. A major asset of the inn is the personal attention provided for each guest. Guests find a complimentary map of Rome is their bedrooms.

Purple Roofs

“The inn has great sound-blocking windows, so traffic won’t bother you at night when you’re trying to sleep. The 4 rooms are each equipped with a refrigerator, a TV, and wireless internet access. The rooms were all gutted and remodeled when the new owners created the property. The location is the closest we visited to the Forum and Coliseum… and you can easily walk to almost anything in central Rome, including the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps.”

“Unlike most B&B’s that leave you without a staff, the affable English-speaking owners are always available during the day and happy to answer any questions – a real rarity in its class.”
