"Great B&B for the self sufficient."
Nice little B&B. If you are a self sufficient traveler this is a great place to stay (staff only there when checking in or cleaning) . The beds are comfortable and it is clean. Wi-fi is good. Located close to Manzoni metro station. Minibar in the room and hot pot available in communal area. Breakfast is drink and a croissant that you have to go about 1 1/2 block to get at a local cafe (they give you a coupon). Shower has awesome water pressure but it is ultra tiny.

"Well connected bed and breakfast in a good area"
We stayed in this B&B for our 4 nights in Rome from Sep 30-Oct 4, 2015. This is place well connected being close to a metro station Manzoni within 2 stops of main train station and within walking distance of Colosseum. The family managing this place is very helpful and suggested us the good places to see around the city. They offer breakfast in cafe next door. There are good restaurants nearby. Room was very comfortable and clean. I would recommend this place as good value for money.

"Avoid!"
Deceiving pictures and description on the site - Hotels.com. A "guesthouse", not a hotel in any way, shape, or form. Old building with a locked door, no signage, and the owner was not there, even though I had a reservation. Interior room photographs may have been accurate at one time, but no longer. Tired towels, dirty floors and mirrors. No security or management there at night. You are on your own. Neighborhood looks rough. I would not stay there, and I left, finding a far superior hotel for a little more money. I will be demanding my money back.

"Comfort and Access in the Heart of Rome"
The B&B is one and one-half blocks north of the Manzoni Metro stop, which is the second stop south of the Termini train station on the A (red) line. Gianluca met us promptly at the corner, and he gave efficient instructions after he escorted us to the site. High ceilings in the building make the climb to the second floor seem like three flights, but a very fast classic elevator eliminates the need. Freshly painted, modern appointments with large mirrors. Lots of hot water and towels. Small but serviceable bathroom retrofitted into a large bedroom. The Via Emanuele Filiberto is a busy street, but the modern balcony doors lock out the noise. Large, comfortable bed. AC and Italian-only TV. Small fridge in room, stocked w/drinks for sale. Accepted credit card for payment. Very serviceable wifi. Very secure, with three keys to enter the building, B&B, and room. (Almost too secure. As usual at B&Bs, the door to the room locked from the inside with a key. It may be a good idea to leave the key in the door inside against any need to exit in a hurry in the dark.) The included breakfast is a croissant and coffee at a friendly coffee shop a block north. At night the coffee shop becomes a bright and popular restaurant. Many small food stores nearby. Easy walking distance to St. Maria Maggorie, San Clemente, St. John Lateran, the Colosseum, and the Palatine Hill. The operator is not on site, but the staff was present every morning. Sufficient English.

"Lovely hotel within walking distance of everything"
We arrived not really sure what to expect and were greeted by lovely members of staff. The room was lovely, comfy and clean, and was close to a very convenient mini mart (which was also very cheap!). Breakfast was a drink and a croissant from a couple of places up the road (all included in the stay)- it was great to experience the culture around where were were, not just the hotel itself. Fab place, lovely people- would definitely recommend it to a friend.

"Lovely Small Hotel"
Well, not really a hotel as such but more a BnB thats 10 minute walk from the Colosseum, 5 minute walk to the metro and pretty central to everything else in Rome. Stayed here for 5 nights with my girlfriend and can't really fault the place. Only downside to it was that the walls and doors where a little on the thin side.

"Mmmm Hotel? clean but not a Hotel"
The stay was fine, however I must point out that this isn't a "hotel". Its a suite of rooms on the second floor of a block, with a common area as a kitchen, and breakfast not at this premises, but a few doors down the street. This all works quite well and for the price its great, but its not a hotel! The picture on the website of a door with steps, is the inside of a large street door, and is the same door as other non hotel property. You don't get that view from the street (that's a bit naughty and misleading!) again the stay was fine but the description a bit "Walter Mitty"

住过很多家庭酒店,国内、国外,但都会有个招牌,但这个酒店没有,由于飞机晚点到酒店已经晚上11点,看不到招牌,机场巴士把我载到一个居民楼前停下,吓得不敢下车,酒店老板道是给我来过电话,因为自己英语不好,没接,没想到他是要约在楼前等我们,阴差阳错的,等了半小时找到老板,告诉我们确实是在这,才下来走进居民楼,说实话,进大门后感觉还不错,房间是标间性质的,还有小厨房啥的,道也干净,但我们房间安排靠街,很吵,不敢开窗睡觉,早餐不是老板自己准备的,而是到街区的一个咖啡馆送一杯咖啡、一块蛋糕,纯意大利式早餐,没吃饱。

I was recommended by my Italian friend to stay in Gianluca's B&B. The room was spacious and tidy, the bathroom was well equipped with a nice big shower, hairdryer, etc. Very quiet and central neighborhood, easy access by metro and within walking distance to many attractions. Gianluca is a fantastic host. Would definitely recommend!

03/15/16 Farhan K Los Angeles, California, United States
Compared to others in it's price range, this accommodation boasts great amenities, location, and atmosphere. It's located in a pretty central (though not too touristic) neighborhood with easy access to public transportation. The room itself is spacious and has everything a mid-tier hotel would have, including a fridge. The beds are also quite comfortable and staff quite friendly. Do note there is no 24 hour check in though & the breakfast is a simple croissant and drink at a nearby cafe. Overall great experience and would stay again if on a budget.

My friend and I stayed at the El Dorado last summer for a week at the beginning of a tour of Italy. The room was fabulous - very spacious and with very efficient air conditioning (it was nearly 40oC during our trip!!). The bathroom was nice enough considering the relative cheapness of the price of the room overall! The kitchen was nice although the fridge was locked which meant that we couldn't buy and store any goods. Breakfast coupon idea was great - I loved my cappuccinos at breakfast. I have fond memories here and would definitely stay again if I return to Rome!

"Comfortable, Clean, Well Serviced And Great Location"
06/26/15 Neil P Melbourne, Australia
We stayed 5 nights in the Emerald Room and were very satisfied with the room. The bed was large and comfy, ensuite was clean, with great water pressure in the shower and clean towels provided every second day. The continental breakfast (coffee & large croissant) supplied at local restaurants was always a pleasant start to each day. The rooms are very secure, with four locked doors and 60 steps (yes I counted them) between the rooms and the street. There is a quaint lift available if you don't like counting steps. Communal kitchen with tea/coffee and information was a bonus, the free wifi worked very well and the daily servicing of rooms was a pleasant surprise. We used the shuttle service organised by El Dorado for pick up from and return to the airport and it was great. The staff at El Dorado were very friendly and helpful. El Dorado was very close to transport services and was only 15 minute walk to Colosseum, Palatine Hil and The Forum. We managed to find several good restaurants and bars within a minute or twos walk as well. We would happily stay here again in Rome.

"Lovely little guest house"
06/15/15 Rachel462014 Blackpool, United Kingdom
Me and my boyfriend were there the first week in June and had a really lovely stay. The place only has 4 bedrooms, all opening out onto one little corridor, so you avoid the feel of a big hotel. The people who work there were incredibly friendly and the lady who greeted us on the first day gave us a ton of recommendations and advice on what to see, what to do and where to eat! Breakfast is included - you get a little voucher to use at a little cafe down the street for a croissant and a coffee. I've seen some complaints about this but we loved the idea of starting our day in the little cafe - and their coffee is delicious! It's very secure, there's the main door which opens onto the main street and requires a key, a set of smaller doors inside the main lobby, a little lift, another door to the guest house and then your own door to the room. In short there's a lot of doors someone would need to get through! We were in the Platinum Room and it was lovely and clean, the high ceilings made it feel really airy and the flooring was very pretty. We were really impressed with the room Free wifi, 10 minute walk to the colosseum, 20 minute walk max to the main train terminal, and 5 minutes to a metro stop - we thought the location was pretty perfect! Our only complaints were sound-proofing. It's an older building (well kept though) but the doors weren't the most sound proof, but that's to be expecting. Our bed was quite squeaky though which wasn't the best. Overall we had a really delightful stay (the air-conditioning was essential!) and we'd definitely recommend the place and probably stay again!

The bed and breakfast met or exceeded all expectations. As we walked there from the train station, we were apprehensive. From the moment we were met at the door, all fears fell away. It was a safe, clean and conveniently located building. Everyone that worked there was helpful. The room wasn't huge but it didn't need to be. It was all we needed in this beautiful city. I would recommend the El Dorado Colosseum to everyone!

We stayed in the Emerald room, one of four rooms available on the 2nd floor. It was a lovely, spacious and well set out room with it's own ensuite. A very comfortable queen size bed. Split system air-conditioning/heating for the bedroom. The room was serviced each day which was unexpected and fresh towels provided every 2nd day. Communal kitchenette with tea & coffee amenities. Tickets provided for breakfast at local cafe, a few doors away, each morning of coffee & croissant. The staff were very friendly and informative. We felt very safe and secure with four locked doors between the street and our room. Great location, 5 mins walk to 2 Metro stations and 10-15 min walk to Termini, the major train station in Rome. Plenty of restaurants close by. The Colosseum is a 10 min walk away. We would certainly stay here again.

"Fantastic place, extremely courteous staff."
02/06/15 Ipsita_Das Mumbai (Bombay), India
Set in an old building on a quiet street of Rome, El Dorado gives the experience of staying in an ancient Roman building with all modern facilities. The entrance door is more than 100 years old, and an ancient lift takes one up to the reception of El Dorado. Rooms are extremely well kept, and have high windows that look upon the main road. There is a small dining area with a kitchen, incase one wants to prepare a small mean or coffee. The staff is extremely courteous. The person at the reception helped us plan the itinerary for places to see and shop in Rome. Less than a 5 min walk to the metro, its an ideal place to stay as it's well connected by all modes of transportation. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip to Rome.

"comfortable and cozy appartment in the center of Rome"
01/16/14 Taisiya F Москва, Россия
For the second time already we stayed in the B & B El Dorado Colosseum and absolutely satisfied with everything . You feel like at home here. All rooms are clean , spacious, comfortable, cozy. Plus, you can always use the shared kitchen. Apartments are located near metro Manzoni (3 min by walk), near B&B also there are some food shops and cafes. Gianluca - a great host who is always ready to help you. Many attractions easily accessible on foot. 10 minutes unhurried pace - and you are close to Coliseum . 10 minutes by walk in other direction - and you can reach the Termini station. Everything is very convenient . I would recommend this B&B to all.
