"Good place."
We had a nice stay. The BnB was empty most of the time or had very quiet guests because of the season. The owner and the cleaning lady were very pleasant and helpful. The elevator is a marvel. We had to get the router's password off the bottom of the router because the owner forgot to give it to us. WiFi was good. We had the triple room which has a nice balcony overlooking the park. Clean, decent bedding, secure, and centrally located. The only problem for some might be the diverse neighborhood. We had no problems and everyone we interacted with on the street was friendly and helpful. The metro is very close as are buses and trams. All kinds of local food places around.

"Safe, clean place to stay with young children"
Our family had a fantastic 4 night stay at Mr. Frills. The room was a double plus 2 singles in the loft. Our room and the common areas were clean and nicely furnished. The wifi worked well. The breakfast is self-serve, nice if you want an early start, and more than adequate - coffee, tea, juice, milk, 6 kinds of cereal, brioche (croissants), jellies, bread. The building has an elevator. The location is great starting point for exploring Rome. If you prefer walking, the Colosseum is 20 minutes away, the Basilica di San Giovanni in Laterano is 15 minutes away. Public transportation is fantastic, metro stop (line A, one hop from Roma Termini), bus and tram are all within 2 blocks.

we arrived on New Year's Eve and the staff provided us with a bottle of complimentary champagne and cake! The rooms are big and the common area is great. You can make whatever you want in the open kitchen and there are always cakes, cereals and snacks available along with milk, orange juice, coffees and teas. We often would come back after an exhausting day and make coffee and just sit in the common area and surf around on the wifi. The Wifi does NOT work in the rooms though. Only in the common area. There it is strong and clear! The only negative thing was that you can hear EVERYTHING from the room to the common area or...what is going on in the rooms. NOT a romantic place...not quiet. The windows to the outside are totally soundproof however and we had a little balcony. It very is central (a little on the ghetto-side in atmosphere) and getting around from there is easy and awesome. You have to be very independant..there is no staff on duty to assist you unless you get the sweet cleaning lady to give you tips while she is there working. All in all, if you are there to sight see and just need a nice. clean and modern crash pad it is perfect and I would definitely stay there again!

We stayed in double 2floor room with a lovely bedroom upstairs. Everything was perfect. The hostess was already waiting for us and welcomed warmly. Kitchen to your own disposal any time you wish outside all apartments. It's actually very 'independent' place but thanks to the hostess(Mrs Marlene) We felt like we were staying with a family.Very clean, quiet, well stored kitchen.Marlene provided us with any info we needed as also with an iron!You meet other guests but occasionally.Close to all best places within walking distance. Will definitely come back!

We really loved our stay at Mr Frills. The rooms look to have just been refurbished and are modern and clean. The beds were great and we had a lovely balcony. I could not fault our room in any way. Only disappointment was the breakfast - no problem with helping ourselves, but only really had a choice of cereal, toast, 1 variety of sweet biscuits and prepackaged croissants. If a breakfast is included I would expect to at least have a choice of FRESH pastries and cold meats and cheeses. Would also have appreciated a sign in the lounge telling people to keep the noise down as all rooms lead off the lounge and every word spoken in the lounge can be heard in the rooms (we had people talking loudly after 10pm every night)

"Good times in Rome"
This BnB was great! Good breakfasts, clean rooms with comfortable beds and air conditioning, and even a TV. Great shower as well. Check in had to be coordinated before hand but that was easy. 15 min walk to the train station and a great location in a cool area. Best restaurant is called 'Vecchia Roma'. Also close enough to the metro and colloseum to see a lot of the city

"Great base in the beautiful Rome"
I stayed here recently for 3 nights. I didn't realise it was a 4 room b&b, it's really a big flat with huge rooms and one breakfast area in the middle. We definitely felt safe there, there's an industrial lock on the b&b door and it's 3 floors up in an apartment block (there is a lift if you need it). The lady who greeted us was very welcoming and provided us with a very comprehensive list of reccomended gelaterias and pizzerias as well as giving us a map and circling loads of sites we might like to visit. Her reccomendations turned out to be the best restaurant and gelataria we went to in our 4 days and they are both very close to the b&b. the rooms are pretty basic but good value, they were cleaned daily. One thing we loved was the huge window which opened out onto a little balcony overlooking the street. The b&b is quite close to the Termini which is very handy for airport transfers, it takes about 15mins to walk to the colosseum which really isn't bad at all. The area isn't amazing but it didn't matter as we spent most of our time exploring all areas of Rome on foot. The complimentary breakfast was basic but good and it did set us up for the day! They kindly allow you use of their laptop which is left in the communal area and there is free wifi throughout the b&b. the only downside we thought was that there isn't generally a staff member present, they checked us in but we weren't sure what to do if we'd had any problems! Great overall though thanks!!

Mr frills was a great find! Good price and very hospitable and clean. You get your own bathroom, check out is at 12pm and very clean room with mini balcony. Overlooks the park. You can walk at night. They supply you with great places to eat, drink, and get gelato. Check in starts at two unless you email them a different time. Very happy with my stay!

"Bra!"
Bra B&B men mycket fina rum. Lyhört mellan rummen som kan väntas på B&B, så inget att klaga på. Vårt rum var mot parken och dörrarna mot vägen är mycket bra isolerade så nästan inget ljud från gatan hörs när de är stängda. Mycket bra. Vi fick ett trevligt möte med en i personalen när vi anlände, han tipsade även om olika saker vi kunde se och om rekommenderande resturang och glassbarer som var bra. Att tänka på är att den har ingen stor skylt utan bara en liten namnskylt vid entrén. Gatan går runt parken så kolla bara på numren när ni kommer upp ur tunnelbanan så hittar ni lätt. Det ligger på ena kortsidan. Frukosten är inte bra utan behöver kompletteras med ost grönsaker skinka och yoghurt på lokala affären. När ni gjort det så blir det kanon. :) Om ni vill ha en bra frukost. Denna B&B rekommenderas.

Muy interesante la experiencia, fue como tener nuestra casa en Roma, un confortable dúplex, rápida wifi, tv plana 40’, la recepción muy amable con muchos datos interesantes de la ciudad. Cerca… 10 cuadras de Roma Termini. La zona es actualmente de inmigrantes chinos, indios, pakistanies.. de día pueden comprar casi cualquier cosa, de noche no tuvimos ningún problema. Es importante arreglar bien el horario check in, check out no tienen recepción 24 hs. si tienen que salir antes de las 12 hs, avisar. Nosotros teníamos que tomar un tren y hasta las 12:15 hs no llego nadie por suerte no lo perdimos. Definitivamente volvería.

"깨끗하고 편하고 좋아요"
숙소 되게 깨끗하고 친절하셔서 좋았어요. 위치는 지도상 조금 멀어보이긴 하지만 역에서 15분 걸으면 갈 수 있는 먼거리는 아니구요. 아쉬웠던 점은 4일을 지냈는데 2일이 보일러 고장으로 온수가 나오지 않았다는 거예요...그것도 저희방만ㅜㅜ연락드렸더니 다음날 바로 수리해주시긴 했지만 다음날 아침 또 안나오더라구요ㅜㅜ 그래서 2일동안 찬물에 머리 감았답니다. 뭐 저희간날 고장난거라 어쩔수 없는거였지만 저희는 불편했기에 1점 뺐어요. 그거 빼고는 되게 좋았어요. 여기 숙소는 다 방안에 화장실 있는거 같아요. 청소도 잘해주시고 아침은 간단하게 셀프로 챙겨먹고 진짜 히터틀어도 따뜻한바람 안나와서 방이 좀 추운거랑 온수 안나온거 빼고는 좋았어요.

Esto permite un precio un poco más asequible. Espero que vuestra estancia en Roma sea tan buena como la que he tenido!!

"3 night was enough"
11/30/15 805olga Prague, Czech Republic
We stayed 3 days in November. We choose this apartments based on the reviews . It wasn't such good idea. During first days we didn't have hitting at all, and hot water. It was very unpleasant sleep and wake up if in the room only 19 degrees. The room and the bathroom a bit dirty. We booked a room with 2 separate beds, when we arrived it was one double bad. The location is dangerous and to walk during the night quite insecure.

"Amazing"
11/24/15 AJP242 Murrieta, California
This hotel exceeds our expectations. The building outside seemed old with lots of graffiti but we were surprised when we get to the place. The room is bigger than what I expect. Everything is clean. Breakfast is self-serve. They offer varieties of cereals, bread, coffee, milk and juice. There are oven toaster, coffee maker, oven, and other stuff in the kitchen. They have 3 dining tables and nice reception area. The staff is not there all the time but she is very nice though she cannot speak English well. We will definitely come back. By the way, when we were there, there were group of 6 people and they were little noisy so if you want quiet place, maybe request room not near the dining and kitchen areas. Other than that, we enjoyed our 2-day stay.

"Helpful and friendly..."
09/29/15 Adam L Leeds, England, United Kingdom
Comfy stylish rooms and loved the feel of the place...more local apartment than hotel (which I guess is the point...) Particularly thankful for the hints and tips we received...have been lucky enough to visit Rome several times and they were news to me! It will definitely be up there next time we're in Rome. Some don't like the area...it's a little rough around the edges but there are so many great restaurants nearby (including Fassi's Gelato just around the corner!) and we never felt unsafe. Really convenient for Termini if you're travelling elsewhere in Italy or to the airport of course...

2 minute walk from the train station which makes it easy to see all the major sites, comfortable bedrooms which were clean however the bathroom was very small and hard to use. Mr frills was energetic and helpful when we arrived but was hard to contact after that when our key stopped working. The neighbourhood was sketchy because it's so close to the main train station but we didn't feel unsafe just wary of our surroundings. The kitchen was good, breakfast was reasonable. The wifi didn't work while we were there which made the whole stay feel overpriced, but staying in the centre of Rome is expensive, There are so many hotels and hostels in Rome next time I would try another

Visited for four nights a small group of five. Mr Belli greeting us in the first evening even though two of our flights were delayed. He was very friendly and gave us a map with top tips.- places to eat sites to see. The rooms are comfortable and are cleaned daily. All are ensuite. There is a communal living room and kitchen where you self serve breakfast. It felt more like an apartment then a B&B but I think this added to the atmosphere. There is free wi-fi. Signal is stronger in the living room and that is really the only think I would change. This was my second time in Rome and if I return as I hope to I will definitely use Mr frills B&B again.

"My 1 night stay at Mr Frills"
10/13/14 Alex L Burnaby, Canada
We stayed one night at Mr Frills. The lady who checked us in was friendly and helpful. The location is very convenient as it is only 5min from the Metro station Vittorio Emanuele. Do note that all the exits of Vittorio Emanuele have no elevators and have about 20 steps of stairs. The room was spacious and everything worked. Balcony opens to the plaza with a good view. I do agree with some reviews that there are some "sketchy" characters on the street. But we still felt safe because the area is very busy and there is always other pedestrians on the street. The included continental breakfast lacks variety but is adequate and convenient. The hotel is on the second floor (not including the ground floor) and there is a very small elevator. We would consider staying at Mr Frills again.

07/24/14 Rebecca W
This place was even better than expected. The location is perfect, an 8 minute walk from Termini station. Lots of good places to eat for all budgets nearby and easy to get to all visitor attractions. There is a metro station next to the apartment. The host who met us (Mr Frills ) was extremely helpful as he gave us a map and some top tips which were very useful. His English was perfect. The room was exceptionally clean and comfortable with fresh linen and towels and was cleaned every day. Continental self service breakfast is an added bonus as is having a communal fridge and free wifi. The only down side was the washing machine was out of service and there was building work going on on the lower level so this was noisy from around 8.30am. No big deal as it meant we were up early to make the most of the hot sunny days. I would highly recommend this place to couples, families or any budget traveller. It's very homely and in a wonderful city.
