This guest spent his holiday in bed and breakfast in Rome at Quodlibet on: 8/2012
My friend and I stayed at the B&B from a Thursday till Monday. When we send out our booking request the QuodLibet was the one, which replied the fastest. It also looked the nicest from the hompage/pictures. We booked a double room with en-suite bathroom at 85 Euro/night incl. breakfast. We got enough comprehensive information from Gianluca in advance. The B&B is only a stone throw away from the Vatican and just 200 meters away from the nearest metro station.
The B&B is located on the 4th floor of a roman house and has an elevator. Upon arrival we were greeted by Gianluca and we learned that the B&B has new rooms! The 4 ?season? rooms in the left part on the floor and the 4 new rooms on the right side of the floor. Both parts are equipped with a kitchen and seating area.
My friend and I stayed in the ?white? room as we called it, since the other rooms we could peek in were blue and green. The room was very spacious, friendly, light and airy. The room was brand new, it even still smelt new.
The room had one big double bed with bedside tables (for me, being 5'10'' the bed was a little short but still comfy), one day bed, two chairs and table, a wardrobe (in which there is also a mini-fidge), TV and two air conditions. The bathroom was separated from the main room with a door and one step and also brand new. Everything was very clean. The room was facing into the inner courtyard of the house, hence it was very quiet, which we appreciated.
Gianluca invited us to sit down in the kitchen area with him, offered us orange juice and cookies from the bakery that is just downstairs and seems to be open all the time. We got the keys and he showed us places where to eat real Roman/Italian food (and which food), gelato, which walks we could take trough the city, which sites to visit and we got all our questions answered. An Australian couple joined us a few minutes later.
We really appreciated this personal way of ?checking in? and receiving first hand advice.
The breakfast was served every mornign at around 8:30 in our room and it was more than you could ask for (taken into consideration that Italians have "only" a coffee and a piece of sweet pastry in the morning): tea/coffee, jam/Nutella, some salami/cold cut with paprika, some small choice of cheese, toast, boiled eggs, orange juice, fruit, sweet pastry from the bakery downstairs PLUS on Sunday we got some cookies AND a piece of Tiramisu for breakfast ? how fantastic is that?!
Only on the first day or breakfast eggs were a little under-cooked, so we let Gianluca know and from the next day on the eggs were perfect.
The room was cleaned every day and looked as nicely as the day we checked in.
Since our flight left later in the afternoon on Monday, it was no problem to leave our luggage at the B&B, we even got a spare set of keys to let ourselves in, when we came back from our last stroll in town.
Overall our stay was fantastic and if we?d ever travel to Rome again, we?d stay here again, it is a gem of a B&B, which should be treated as such, too. We can absolutely recommend it, without hesitation!
