Classic environs

From Rome with love

Feels like home
The Cesare Balbo Inn is unpretentiously decorated, but touches like free WiFi and top-of-the-line bedding are what win guests over.

Friendly, accomodating staff
Luca went out of his way to accomodate us. There were several issues due to the booking site not being updated, but Luca made sure our needs were met anyway.

Great stay!
My husband and I stayed here for a couple nights and it was one of our favorite hotels compared to other places we stayed in Italy. The room was very reasonably priced for the size of the room and its location/neighborhood. Plenty of bars and restaurants to walk to and public transportation was very close. The hotel staff was VERY helpful, professional, and kind. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a room where you get good value for money while still being in a great location. We will definitely be returning here during our next trip to Rome!

Wonderful Budget Hotel with Breakfast
This is a really great budget hotel close to Termini station. The room we had didn't have any windows as pictured, but was a good size with a private bathroom and had everything we needed. Generous and well-placed power outlets, great air conditioning and wifi... it was very clean and neat, well decorated, and comfortable. A great clean cool refuge from the busy city. The host was helpful and kind and spoke great English. He prepared breakfast for us daily at our preferred time and served it in our room. We would be very happy to stay here again. The location is great, close enough to main attractions and good restaurant options.

Friendly Staff, Great Location & Reasonable Price
We had an amazing stay at Cesare Balbo Inn - the staff was friendly and accommodating, providing us restaurant recommendations, maps and directions - even helping us buy and print tickets to sights! The daily free breakfast delivered to our room was a great start to the day and made it easier to get up and start sightseeing right away! The neighborhood is convenient and not too far from the Colosseum, train station and good restaurants. We'd definitely stay there again.

We loved the location and Glen! He was the best .. Made delicious coffee and breakfast snacks for us each morning - very great location and walkable to anywhere you would want to visit in Rome. The room and bathroom were rather small but for the cost it was a great experience. They also arranged a taxi to pick us up at the airport!
