A good place to overnight in b....
The location near the Termini was convenient. The staff was very friendly and available when needed. The breakfast (although served later than we expected) was good to start the day. The rooms are average with some minor issues now and then but are a good value especially for Rome.

Great place for budget travell....
It was a bit hard to find the place in the night, but the caretakers were super nice once we got there. Nice place and is maintained well. Recommend budget travellers to take a look they won't be disappointed.

Very nice, clean, comfortable.
Great place to stay at! Definitely would stay there again. There is breakfasts included and they make you real cappuccino and they have yummy yogurts and different pastries and fruit and nice quality things. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Would definitely stay there again for sure. Make sure you got to check in during the time that they have available for check in and then you are all set.

Not a bad option for expensive....
Stayed here for three nights. Glad we checked location before going as hard to find if you are not aware it does not have a sign. The rooms are on the third floor of an apartment block. You will find the name only on the bell push panel by the doors. Check in OK. No information given, just handed over keys when Id is given. You get keys for room, guesthouse entrance and outer door to street. There is a small old quaint lift.
Room not bad. Fridge, air con (a bit noisy) Good bathroom. Sachets of shampoo and mini soap. Shower temperature was a bit temperamental. However clean sheets on the bed, firm but good mattress.
Breakfast OK. Mainly pre-packed pastries, cereals, yogurts, toast and jam, fruit. Standard fare I think for here. Unfortunately the cappuccino was near cold 2 days out of 3 but there was juice & water.
Free maps at reception. 5 mins from Termini Station. Bus ticket from airport to Termini around 5 euros, more than 1company to chose from or bus from airport to train station then train to Termini. (Maybe cheaper)
We walked to all major sites from here. Fine for a person of average fitness but public transport and hop on buses are plentiful. We pre-booked Colosseum and Sistine Chapel tix online as we heard so much about queues but we needn't have. Queues were fairly short and the security queues took the longest. Also, once though security at St Peters basilica (10 mins) we walked straight in (free) Maybe we were lucky though. Fab ice cream at L'Orso bianco on via Carlo Alberto close to Casa di rosy.

La Casa di Rosy, A trip to Rom....
AIRPORT TO ROME
A taxi from Fiumicino Airport to central Rome is a set price of 48 euro, Terravision Coach will cost 4 euro if booked on line, the Leonardo Express train is about 14 euro, both of which take you to the main train station
ARRIVING AT HOTEL
The street has many shuttered shops with never ending graffiti and although it is a shock and you wonder what the area is like, I did not feel uneasy, It certainly looked worse at night but in the day it is light and busy. I think this is more of a Chinese area.
This B&B is in a pensione, it has no name on the building as it houses a number of different residents, therefore you must look for the number 10 and then look on the brass bell name plate to the right of the door for B&B Casa di Rosy (which is on the 3rd floor). There are no staff after 10pm so if you arrive after this time you will Pay 25 euro up until midnight and 50 euro after midnight, (BE WARNED). The staff were varied in friendliness and I felt there was definitely a language barrier.
Once inside, there is an old fashioned lift which you must make sure all the doors are closed once in and after leaving to ensure that other residents will be able to use it. The lift is small and worked fine.
On entering the B&B there is a full sized mirror (you will not find one in your room), a small office and breakfast area, the breakfast as they say is simple but plentiful, tea or coffee, juice, toast, croissants, cereal, yogurts and fresh fruit.
WiFi is offered but might be temperamental with different devices in your room but it was always available in the breakfast area.
There are (I think) 7 rooms all ensuite, We had room 6 which could be used as a double with a single or three singles and was quite spacious. Being a corner room there were two windows with shutters and offered plenty of light. It was furnished with a wardrobe, table and chair, one small bedside table, fridge and also a hair drier. The mattresses were very hard and uncomfortable (for me anyway). The ensuite contained a toilet, bidet, good size sink and shelf the shower was a good size but very slippery and there was nothing to hold on to. There was an air conditioner which did work once you worked it out. Complimentary toiletries comprised of a little soap bar, sachets of shampoo and shower wash were replenished every day. There is no coffee or tea in the rooms and is only offered at breakfast (even though it was stated tea and coffee making facilities in room by Booking .com and opodo). The TV only offered a few Italian programmes no cable and satellite as once again stated. The room was spotless, cleaned every day and the sheets and towels were changed once during our 5 night stay. We paid roughly £70 a night, I have seen much higher prices for this B&B but I would not pay them. The room was noisy due to tram, bus and other traffic. Would I stay here again? Yes if the price was right.
The “hotel” is a short walk from and to the main train station (Stazione Termine), which is spacious and clean has shops, tourist information, a left luggage area (about 6 euro for first 5 hours per item left) and a Café, you can also access the Metro here. Just outside the main entrance there is a bus station. This area is very central for everything.
The surrounding area has plenty of shops, cafes/bars and restaurants, you can also catch the hop on hop off tour buses.
*Work out an itinerary of what is important for you to see before you go, also check out the prices and look for offers such as the omnia card given by ORP *Look at the maps carefully, you will be surprised how close some things are if you are walking, (the tour buses go around the houses but do give lots of information). The Metro will get you to some other places ie:Coliseum, Vatican.
*There are free down loads of talks and tours about the places to visit ie (Rick Steves) to put on your phone or MP3 player. May I suggest you listen to these before you go as well as while you are there, it makes for a more interesting and better tailored visit.
* There are fast track tickets to some places which in high season could be a good idea, saving time and hot long queues.
*The metro is easy to use, the buses get really packed. The prices are cheap and there are a number of different ticket options to use.
*There are may stall sellers and walk about sellers you can barter with, do not take their first price.
* Tourist nick-knacks vary in price and quality so have a little look around.
Hope you have a great trip.
