Il Passetto Guest House Rome, Rome
Kind Proprietress and a nice place to stay.
Maggie, the hotel host was absolutely wonderful! She was kind, helpful and patient while I was working all the keys to get into the building, hotel and my room. I can't say enough about this wonderful woman and hope she gets the recognition she so deserves. The bed was two twins pushed together and they would separate in the night. Could be uncomfortable. The room could be painted as there were scuffs on the walls, but that was all I could find wrong with it. It was quiet, clean and after all, how much time, when traveling, do you spend in your room anyway? It was nice also to have breakfast delivered to the room. There are good restaurants in walking distance like Insalata Ricca and the Castroni Caffe' is a wonderful place to get food and gifts for back home. All and all, I would stay there again if available on my next visit... If nothing else, to just visit Maggie.

Vatican 2015
The pension is centrally located and only a few steps from the Vatican. Although the room we were assigned was small for 3 beds - it was fairly new and clean as well as the bathroom. Megali is very helpful and gives good tips and info on places to visit.

Loved it. Perfect location.
I loved everything about this place. It's a B and B above some businesses and it super close to the Vatican and convenient to public transportation. Plus breakfast is brought to your room each day - how great is that?
