"You feel like you live in Rome"
The manager and weekend manager were friendly upon arriving. It is more like an apt then a hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Central to everything"
New B & B in an older building. Lovely rooms, great beds, neighbourhood a bit older but it was so close to the Metro stations, cafés and Roman historical sites that it was just what we needed. The owner was very helpful and overall it was a great visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"친근한 분위기 훌륭한 서비스"
다른 후기에서처럼 호텔 간판이 없어서 찾아가는데 힘들었으나 이웃 가게에서 안내를 해 줘서 찾아갈 수 있었음. B&B 오너가 직접 밖에서 기다려주고 있었으며 늦은 시간임에도 친절하게 주변 관광지 및 접근 방법등을 상세히 설명해 줌. Free-Wifi 여서 편했으며 로마 전통 주거 하우스 형태에 내부 가구 및 화장실 등은 다 리모델리을 해서 매우 단정했으며 사용하기 편리했음. 테르미니 역에서 짐을 들고 걸어오기엔 좀 거리가 되며 Mazoni 역에서 접근하기 쉬움.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ottima posizione, cordialità top"
Abbiamo soggiornato in 2 e siamo stati molto bene la camera è confortevole, la posizione è ottima, il personale cordialissimo. abbiamo trovato pulizia ed ospitalità. unica pecca, ma non di grande rilevanza è il fatto che le camere non sono insonorizzate, ma avendo come ospiti nel bed persone educate siamo riusciti a dormire senza problemi. ci ritornerò […] ogni volta che andrò a Roma Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"comfortable and cozy appartment in the center of Rome"
01/17/14 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.

This place is highly recommended. Very nice rooms, good attention, clean and well located (the Colosseum is only a 20 minutes walk and also has a Metro station really close). Good price by Rome standards.
"Just like home"
Very satisfactory stay! We had 3 nights here and found everything to be above standard for the price and location. Comfy bed. Will definitely come back. Walking distance from metros and Colosseum. Very safe. Feels just like your own apartment.
"Nice place to stay in Rome"
06/14/13 Arthur B Sao Paulo, SP
I stayed a week in this B&B with my wife during June, it was a pleasant experience since all the staff where very nice and the rooms are clean and quiet - especially after they installed a noise block window. The neighborhood is good as well, close to the Malzone subway station and to the Meraluna street where you can find a lot of good places to eat and shop. My only complain is regarding the breakfast, this B&B have a kitchen but the breakfast is outside on a nearby shop. The food served there is average and the service is poor, I had to wait almost 20 mim to be served a croissant once and clearly the owner was giving more attention to locals. If you can try to negotiate with Gianluca and Andrea to skip breakfast and get a discount, you will not regret it.

Great B&B, My girlfriend and I stayed there for 3 nights. The place is cozy and in a very convenient location (a short walk to the Coliseum and the “Fori Imperiali” and close to the subway station). Room was comfortable and clean and Gianluca the owner was very helpful in helping us navigating around Rome. Overall, we had a great time, would totally go back.
"Excellent retreat from the city"
05/29/13 softscoop Worcester, United Kingdom
We have just spent 4 nights at the El Dorado and it was a welcome retreat to the hustle and bustle of outside. The staff were all extremely friendly, and couldn't have been more helpful! Breakfast was great, served at a lovely café a couple of doors down! Coffee & almond croissant for breakfast went down a treat! I wouldn't advise Rome, we did not enjoy the hostile nature towards tourists, but if you do intend to go, I would most certainly recommend the El Dorado Colosseum!
"Loved our stay - clean, comfortable, felt like home"
05/26/13 Omdog San Francisco, California
My husband and I had a great time at this little B&B in an apartment building in a great part of Rome. We liked being a bit away from all the tourists but were still close to a metro stop (just down the street) and good tram line, and only about 25 minutes walking to the Coliseum. The family who owns this place is SO nice - we loved meeting them, and they took great care of us. They don't speak a ton of English but my Italian and their good efforts to speak English got us by just fine. They really made our stay special and we miss them. (Note: They do not live on-site but are there daily in the morning, and also made sure to be there when we arrived, which is nice, since we've read horror stories about other hotels of this type where no one is around to receive guests. This is NOT the case here thankfully.) The rooms are good-sized for Italy - we had the Emerald room, which is the only one not on the street, which I recommend. As dumb luck would have it, they were repainting the building the 10 days we were there, so we couldn't open the window in the bedroom due to scaffolding, and there was a lot of noise, but it wasn't horrible. Of course, this wasn't the owners' fault - they even offered to move us to another room, but we enjoyed the peace and quiet in the evenings at the back most of all, so we stayed put. The only drawbacks I can mention are: - This isn't a B&B in the American sense - you have to go downstairs and up the street for your morning coffee and cornetto/croissant, but we didn't mind, as we highly enjoyed Cafe Ciamei and the people there were so friendly. If you're looking for big American breakfast, this isn't for you. If you want an authentic Italian experience, you'll get it here. - The street is pretty quiet on this strip (the next block down is wider/more busy), but it could still be an issue for light sleepers. Remodeling work aside, the Emerald room in back would be great for those seeking quieter times, but note there is only 1 room not on the street (they only have 4 total). - Given this is a huge flat turned into a 4-room guesthouse, you do hear noise from other guests, and some noise from neighboring apartments. We were lucky to be there in March, which was low season, so most days/nights we had the place to ourselves, but in high season, I could see it being a bit noisy. There are gorgeous tiled floors throughout, but you do hear people walking around and also doors slamming/closing. Regardless of any of the above drawbacks, which are minor, we'd stay here again in a heartbeat. We were there initially in the low season and also right after they opened (they have a more established property of the same style in Prati near the Vatican), so we got a great price. Not sure what it would be during high season, but if competitively priced, I'd still recommend this place highly. Overall we had a wonderful stay: it felt like home and the place is super cute, cozy, and clean, with nice furnishings, plush towels, and a super comfortable bed and pillows. There's even a kitchen where you can make coffee and tea (complimentary) and mini fridges in the room. (You cannot cook here.) We loved it!
"Comfortable stay in a quiet and relatively convenient location"
05/23/13 dvizco Hong Kong, China
We stayed at B&B El Dorado for 3 nights and it was indeed a pleasant experience. The owner Gianluca is very hospitable and helpful and had the initiative to ask what time we are arriving and provided suggestions on the quickest way to find the place. He also provided maps and taught how us to get to places from the B&B. Our room was clean, it was on the quiet site so we had good nights' sleep except for one day when there was some construction work nearby and heard people working around 9AM, which is about time for us to be up anyway. The bed and pillows were comfortable, the bathroom was spacious though shower area was a bit small but it was no big deal for us. There werent much toiletries provided which is fine because we bring our toiletries anyway. They changed sheets and towels everyday and nice surprise to find we have free breakfast at a nearby cafe/bar.Though it's pretty much the same stuff everyday, the coffee was undeniably good and the croissants / pastries were not bad either. The location is a comfortable walk to the train station (few blocks away) and bus stops and there were a few nearby places to grab quick bites (including gelato) and a laundry shop which we needed. Also walking distance from the Coloseum and the Roman forum. I'll definitely recommend this place - good value for money.
"Comfortable accommodation and excellent location"
05/13/13 Maria G Thessaloniki, Greece
We stayed at the Emerald room for six nights.The room and the bathroom were spacious enough with nice contemporary furniture.The Emerald room faces the back of the building which is a big open space with the back part of other surrounding buildings so you have no special view but that was OK because it was absolutely quiet during the night.The mattress and the pillows were fantastic, vey comfortable.We sleeped and rested very well every night after hours and hours of walking and wandering around Rome.The location is very convenient, the Manzoni station of metro line A is very close (200 mtrs away) so you can get to the center and the Vatican area very quickly.Besides that, the Colosseum and Roman Forum is a 15-20 minutes walk away.The breakfast, a coffee and a croissant were served at cafe ciamei, a few steps away from the entrance of the El Dorado B&B.The coffee was very good and the croissant fresh and tasty but we had to adjust to the Italian way of taking the breakfast quickly and standing in the bar, not bad though.Overall it was clean (still could improve a little bit in small details but Ok it's not 5 stars), they changed towels every day and the area seemed safe even late at night.All the personnel were kind and helpful and we were given a map by Gianluca who highlighted the most important sights of Rome.In conclusion, I believe El Dorado Colosseum B&B offers good value for money and I would certainly recommend it to others.
