"Fantastic service"
Veronica was very welcoming, as I am a celiac she had especially bought in plenty of gluton free food for me. Both myself and sister-in-law were made to feel very welcome, there was a good variety of food for breakfast each day. Cereal, eggs, toast, buns, croissantes, rolls, biscuits, fruit, cheese, fruit juice, tea, coffee. The rooms were spotlessly clean comfortable beds, fresh bedding and towels throughout the week. Gerry the manager was very helpful and accommaditing, on our last day we were given a seperate key so we were able to leave our luggage at the guest house all day until our taxi to take us to the airport at teatime. Gerry helped with getting our luggage down and stayed with us until the taxi came. The guest house is in a very nice area of Rome 5 minutes walk from the vatican it was not noisy at night. I would highly reccomend staying at Sweet Dreams to anyone visiting Rome. I would most certainly stay there again.

"Gute Lage, freundlicher Service aber mit Abzügen"
Service: Wir wurden von einem sehr freundlichen Mitarbeiter in Empfang genommen. Dieser scheint auch der einzige Mitarbeiter zu sein, der am Vormittag die Zimmer reinigt und das Frühstück vorbereitet und am Nachmittag in der Küche Filme am Laptop schaut und Fragen immer freundlich beantwortet. Service top! Räumlichkeiten: Es handelt sich im Prinzip um eine Wohnung mit drei Gästezimmern. Die Küche dient als Frühstücksraum. Wir hatten das Pech das einzige Zimmer zu erwischen, dessen Badezimmer auf der anderen Seite des Gangs lag. Das Zimmer sah auf den ersten Blick sehr modern aus, auf den zweiten Blick fallen aber viele Unzulänglichkeiten wie ein ranziger Spiegel, ein uralter Teppich oder eine zerfranste Decke auf. Das Badezimmer bot eine Badewanne, die aber sehr klein ist. Der Rest der Ausstattung ist OK. Positiv: es war immer alles sehr sauber!

"Mukava paikka - Nice place"
Tämä pieni "hotelli" sijaitsee lähellä Vatikaania, kävelymatkan päässä. Metro, Taksit, Ruokapaikat että ostospaikkoja ihan lähellä. Meidän 3-hengen huone oli siisti mutta ehkä vähän ahdas. Siivous päivittäin. Aamiaisen valmisti "apumies" Jerry KIITOS. Se oli runsas ja maistuva. Tarjolla oli erilaisia makeita, Sekä tuoretta leipää ja croisantteja, munia, juustoja, leikkelettä, tuoremehuja ym. Jerry otti meidät myös vastaan ja neuvoi ja opasti nähtävyyksien ym kanssa. Hän oli erittäin ystävällinen KIITOS :) B&B Sweet Dreams oli enemmän kodinomainen kuin Hotelli. Saimme myös heidän kauttaan lentokenttä kyyditykset. Suosittelemme tätä majapaikkaa jos ei vaadi 5*tähden hotellia. Me olimme erittäin tyytyväisä. This small "hotel" is located near the Vatican, just walk away. Metro, taxis, Diners and shopping just "hotel" in the vicinity. Our 3-bed room was clean but perhaps a bit cramped. The room was cleaned every day. Breakfast prepared "helper" Jerry THANK YOU. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. There was a variety of sweets etc, fresh bread and croissants, eggs, cheeses, cold cuts, juices, etc. Jerry took us to receive and advised and guided sightseeing etc. He was very friendly. Sweet Dreams was more home-like than hotel. They also organized airport transportation. We can recommend this place to stay for traveler that does not require a 5 * star hotels. We were very pleased.

"Bagunça na cobrança chuveiro ruim"
Colocaram uma pessoa para nos recepcionar que não falava Italiano. Esta pessoa queria que eu pagasse novamente pela estadia que já estava paga alegando que o cartão era só uma pré reserva. Eu mostrei o comprovante de que havia sido pago e a pessoa não sabia ler em Italiano, essa discussão demorou pelo menos duas horas quando após muita insistência do meu marido, o atendente então ligou para a Sra Verônica (dita responsável pelo estabelecimento) A senhora Veronica voltou a dizer que a estadia não estava paga. Falei que reservei pelo Hoteis.com e então ela resolveu ir verificar, porém só obtive uma resposta de que estava tudo ok mais de 24 horas depois. Sendo assim o fim das minhas férias que era para ser visitando a Capela Sistina foi na internet tentando levantar a fatura do cartão de crédito a qual tinha sido descontada as duas diárias. Para completar,o banheiro era mínusculo (tinhamos que praticamente entrar de costas) NÃO TINHA BIDÊ prometido no texto da internet, o chuveiro caia pouquíssima água as vezes muito quente (de queimar a pele) , as vezes gelada ( no mesmo minuto). Ele era todo desconexo e não parava quieto a não ser jogando a pouca água que lhe saia na parede. o secador de cabelos (do próprio B&B ) quando era ligado, caia a energia da casa toda, isso é não conseguimos usá-lo por 10 segundos nenhuma vez

Das zimmer ist sehr schön und geschmackvoll, das Bad ist über den Gang zu erreichen und ist ebenfalls geräumig und nett eingerichtet. Leider sind die Wände aus Papier und so haben wir unsere Zimmernachbarn reden, schnarchen, TV.....durchgehört, die Schlafqualität war somit weniger gut. Wir empfehlen Ohrenstöpsel ;-)

"Boa estadia"
O hotel em si fica localizado dentro de um condomínio, é como se fosse um apartamento. O quarto que fiquei não era suite, apesar de ter um banheiro individual. Fora isso tudo correu dentro do previsto. O café da manhã foi muito bem servido. Fica proximo de uma estação de metro (Ottaviano - linha A) e muito próximo do Vaticano, menos de 10min de caminhada. Na rua de trás do hotel, tem uma excelente "tratoria" com convênio com o hotel, recomendo.

"Honest review"
04/03/16 propete1983
I'll be honest, it was not the worst B&B nor was it the best. It's very good for the price although there were some annoying points. In general it's perfectly adequate and I would recommend it to the right sort of person (not too fussy and only wants somewhere to sleep and take a simple breakfast) The decor is striking and tasteful yet a little dated now and the layout is a little odd. If you have the same room as we did (with the separate bathroom) you have to take a set of 4 or 5 keys with another key for just the bathroom. A little odd and confusing at first but comfortable in the knowledge it's very secure. So some points to consider: Location - Absolutely brilliant and soo convenient for walking or the metro. Literally 5 minutes from great restaurants, the Vatican and castel sant angelo! With the proximity to the main part of Rome it's brilliant and is only a 25 to 30 minute walk to the main attractions. Room - as mentioned above, quirky with tasteful if a little dated decor. The room was very clean (except for the carpet which had hair and crumbs on it until day 2 or 3), spacious enough and excellent aircon. The whole apartment during our stay was very quiet and private although on the last night the room next to us was full of noisy guests (showering and using hairdryers at 11.30pm) which was bad because the walls are very thin. Bathroom - Nice size and reasonable facilities but disappointing there was no switch on the toilet (still functional but looks terrible) and no holder for the shower (meaning you have to hold it yourself which is quite annoying). There was also no shower door so the water just splashes everywhere. Staff - Nice enough and very helpful. Seems like nothing is too much trouble (when they are in the apartment) but there is a limited menu shall we say so they are severely restricted Breakfast - although included we actually found it pretty bad. Croissants and bread were nice but that's literally it (although you can't really moan for the price). It's by no mean Mediterranean or Continental given (as mentioned in other reviews) that the the ham and cheese on offer is exceptionally cheap, one choice (burger cheese slice only) and out of a packet. Coffee and fruit juices are excellent though. So on the whole the B&B is quirky but generally ok for its purpose and is excellently located with a limited breakfast and a few annoying points. Ideal for a budget few days in the best city in the world!

The owner was so rude, we got there at night and she didn't let us in because "it was too late" but when we made the reservation there was nothing saying we have to get there before 18:00 and we let her know our plane was late, so we needed to look for another hotel midnight with the baggages, and at the next day the owner charge full price of the reservation. Very bad attitude and service!!!

booked with budget.com in January 2015 to stay here in October. several times i emailed sweet dreams to find out about an airport transfer but never got a response. a month before we were due to arrive have now been told that the b&b needed my bank card details of which i provided only to still be told that my booking was now cancelled. i still have had no proper explanation as to why and Sweet Dreams have not responded to my emails. whilst i can't comment on the actual accommodation i can tell you that they were certainly not in any way helpful to me. i have also noticed that they have now priced the same dates i was suppose to be going at approx £100 more for the same dates

"The best place to stay in Rome so far (after 5 visits)"
08/26/15 676michalb Katowice, Poland
We've got room with separate bathroom (only for our use). It may not look convenient especially when you get sick, but we were able to manage that. In the end of our stay we were asked to move to the other room with the bathroom inside, so that was an excellent option. Breakfast - that was a perfect start each day. Geronimo is very kind and he always had an answer for our needs and requests. Want coffee? Here it is. Milk maybe? Same thing. Geronimo is a golden host! Beside his marvelous service there was a wide choice of things to eat - not just typical bread and jam! The appartment is on the higher floor, but there is an elevator. It's fairly close to the Ottaviano Metro station and even closer (on the same street) to bus #81 (awesome bus by the way, you can use it to reach many of the landmarks in Rome). If we come back to Rome we will defenitelly ask Veronica if she has free rooms!

"Enjoyable stay at Sweet Dreams Inn"
08/07/15 HanDitt Melbourne, Australia
My friend and I stayed here in Rome for 4 nights. It was a last minute booking (morning of arrival) and we gave an estimate if when we would arrive to the property, sure enough someone (Veronica) was waiting for us. Note for others looking for apartment: it is just a giant front door with buzzers to a number of apartments, sometime isn't in the B&B all the time but if you give an approximate ETA someone will meet you. If you're running late tell them, they have lives too remember. Veronica took us straight in, helped us with our suitcases and got us settled in very quickly. She gave us a run down of location, attractions nearby, transport options and dining options. Room was clean, modern, bed comfortable and the room had aircon! If you're travelling italy in summer you DEFINITELY need aircon! The building is secure and although there are 2 other rooms in this B&B, everyone has their own key to room and front door and main door at front of street. Very secure in my opinion. We were in the one room with a separate bathroom across the hall. The other 2 have ensuites and were a little more dated with the services. Our bathroom was huge so no issues there with 2 girls sharing the bathroom! Finally, they have wifi! It stopped working day 2 but they sorted everyone out with an alternative so it was fine. The main strip has lots of shopping, the Vatican City is literally a 5 minute walk and you can even walk to the centre via Del Corso where the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain are located (and heaps more shopping!). Took about 30 mins. Each morning breakfast was served in the shared kitchen by the main man Gerry! Gerry is the house keeper, but much more than that. He made sure you were happy with the food (traditional European breakfast i.e. bread butter meats cheese etc) and brewed fresh coffee and tea for each individual. It was always good news to see Gerry in the morning. I'd stay here again, no problems. Recommend to others as well if you wish to get away from big hotel, or perhaps a break from a hostel to treat yourself some quiet time without blowing too much cash on the accommodation.

"Comfortable"
04/18/15 sh4lag
We spent 4 days here mid April. The bed was big and comfortable, sheets and towels changed after two nights. Our room looked out on to a quiet back street parallel to Cola de Rienzo and was very convenient for getting around the city. Lots of cafes and restaurants close by. Monochrome colour scheme with a marble floor and a small shower room (with noisy plumbing). Breakfast was served by Jerry in the kitchen: juice, tea, coffee, croissants, bread, cheese etc. Not fancy but all that is needed in a city where you eat pizza, pasta and panini all day. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sweet Dreams as a great base for a Roman holiday.

"Monochramatic marvel"
11/14/14 Zo G Troon, United Kingdom
This is an apartment that has been converted into 3 rooms two en-suite and one room has the sole use of the large family bathroom across the corridor. The person who will greet you between 8 and 5 weekdays or 8 and 12 weekends is Gerry the daily breakfast cook and housekeeper. The breakfast is limited to hot croissants and toast with a selection of sweet breads, pastries, juice, coffee and fruit. Otherwise you will have to contact Veronica, the apartment manager, to gain entry to SDI. The décor is certainly eye catching and gives it a certain old world glamour but just as those days are gone it would be safe to say the décor could do with an update. It certainly doesn't add anything to the place. The beds are really comfortable and the overall cleanliness is good and it is situated 10 mins walk from Metro Ottaviano and 10 mins walk from Vatican. It is actually on the Via Cola Di Rienzo which is a good priced shopping street and only 15 minutes from the River. There are lots of trattorias just over at Borgo di Pio or in fact along every few streets. There are a few Chinese restaurants back down towards Ottaviano which makes a bit of a change from past and pizza if you are there for more than 5 days. I would book Sweet Dreams again. Veronica was extremely helpful via e-mail and gave me clear instructions how to reach the place. It is block D on the brass bell plate to the right of the door or you will stand there scratching your head for ages. Block AB on left and CD on right.

"Sweet Dreams B&B"
09/17/14 Marianne M Rome
This was a perfectly placed B&B although hard to find initially as there is no indication on the street. With just three rooms we were well catered for with breakfast provided by staff and the option to use the kitchen facilities at any time. Decor was tasteful with much neede air conditioning. One room though had a noisy system which inhibitied sleeping, although a fan had been provided. We would recommend the property giving the aforementioned information. Perfect for a week and within easy walking distance of all attractions. The bus from the Leonardo Da Vinci airport stopped within a 10 minute walk and took us back.

"Not Rome's Best"
05/19/14 Mermaidbell200 South Shields, United Kingdom
A very difficult place to find with no instructions to find the exact location. A beautiful old apartment building converted into a b&b. The lovely old rooms have been chopped and given false walls to give maximum profit. The room we had was stuffed with a double and single bed, the double up against the wall. Loud traffic and noisy people all night. Keeping the windows shut is a must. The walls were so thin I could hear the man next door snoring loudly all night. Breakfast was poor pre packed everything. The location was wonderful, had this been let as an old Roman apartment tastefully furnished it would have been wonderful.
