I stayed here for 3 nights and I had a fantastic time.
From the moment I arrived until the moment I left the level of service was second to none. The rooms were modern and well presented.
Franz was always available to offer advice on restaurants, bars, tourist sights and much more. He and his wife were very friendly and welcoming.
I will definitely return and will recommend this place to friends and colleagues.

Perfect Place To Stay
Franz was the fantastic host and gave time to supply a map and highlight the great places to see in Rome and how to get there. The room was immaculate, breakfast was pleasant and nothing was too much trouble, Franz kindly sorted out the transfer to and from the airport.
The property is within a short walk of St Peters Square and all other great attractions. A place that have given us amazing and beautiful memories. We would certainly recommend it to anyone and we will certainly be visiting again.

Beautiful City and Beautiful S....
Myself and my girlfriend visited Rome in early January. We stayed in Beside the Vatican after having a couple of her friends recommend the B&B alongside the reviews. First thoughts of walking through the door... A home from home. What a beautifully kept place to stay and Franz and Manuela could not have done anything more for us if they had tried. They epitomise perfect service.
Upon our arrival, we were greeted like old, returning friends. Our room was waiting and was perfect for what we needed: A big comfy bed to rest the legs after walking god knows how many kilometres around Rome and a lovely ensuite with a powerful and spacious shower. We were provided with a map and had a chat with Franz regarding where to visit and how to get to each place (with an ice cream stop at each site!). Each morning, we were greeted by a happy, smiley Franz, a coffee and some freshly baked croissants.
In terms of location, within walking distance of pretty much everything you could see in Rome, some beautiful restaurants and to walk into St. Peters Sq. every night on our way to get some food is a breathtaking experience, no matter how many times you do it!
If I were to return to Rome in the future, or were to recommend a single place to stay to my nearest and dearest, it would be Beside the Vatican. Thankyou Franz for creating an amazing experience for our stay!
On a side note from our trip, we happened to be in Rome for the first Sunday of the month where all museums, POI etc. are free! Saved us a lot of money that was spent on a well earned coffee break or two!

A very nice and Welcoming place run by a wonderful and very Professional couple.
Good breakfast with a personal service.
Very high standards of cleanliness, and a nice place to relax.
It is a central location with good facilities near by.
Highly recommended and I'll come again.

Fantastic place to stay and be....
We have just returned from 6 nights in Rome staying at this marvellous B&B.
WOW! We have had the holiday of a lifetime, thanks to Franz, who is the manager.
My husband had not read the reviews, so he was surprised when we arrived by the unassuming look of the apartment block. Do not be fooled...it is like a pearl inside an oyster shell!
We were warmly welcomed by Franz and offered a drink. He gave us an easy to read map, which we used all week, and tips and ideas for a walking tour to include all the places we wanted to visit.Our spotless and comfortable room was quiet for sleeping, which we had asked for. We slept better than we do at home on the super king sized bed and we had a laugh with Franz every morning over the best-ever jammy croissants for breakfast. He helped us with all our questions and also gave us superb recommendations for a local restaurants (including Il Giubileo down the road - we recommend the vast and delicious 40 Euro tasting menu which includes wine and coffee). Franz also showed us where we could find an amazing ice cream emporium - La Romana - none better. We recommend this home-from-home B&B to you and we will definitely return.
Top Tip - phone or email ahead and let Franz know your estimated time of arrival.
