This guest spent his holiday in bed and breakfast in Rome at Quodlibet on: 11/2011
We stayed at QuodLibet for 7 nights at the end of November in the Summer double room, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stayed. The hosts are attentive and welcoming. Upon our arrival, they took time to recommend places to visit and restaurants to go. The place is new and very clean. No cooking in the kitchen, but coffee and a selection of tea is offered to make a hot beverage. Great variety for breakfast - fresh bakeries, toasts, buns, cheese, deli meat, soft boiled egg, juice, coffee/tea, butter, jam, Nutella are all included! It's nice to start a packed day with good breakfast.
The B&B is on a busy street, but the sound insulation of the window is good. We could hear mumbles from the street at times, but could still sleep well.
The location is very convenient, a few minutes of walk from Ottaviano-S.Pietro metro stop, 10 minutes of walk to the Vatican, and 10-15 minutes of walk from restaurants and shopping areas. There are some nice shops on Via Dei Gracchi, and we went to Ristorante Cesare for a nice dinner. The restaurant is about 20 minutes of walk away, and it served awesome Italian/Mediterranean food! We had fried fish and risotto for main courses, a nice break from pizza, pasta, and prosciutto, but still authentic Italian food. The other way that we would tell it was authentic was that it seemed we were the only non-Italians in the house that night! Don't worry, the waiter was able to communicate with us in English. And the website is also available in English.
Instead of taking the train from Fiumicino Airport, we took the shuttle bus that was offer to us at the "information" booth at the airport, opposite to the train ticket booths. It costs 15 Euro for the shuttle bus, the same as the fare for the train (14 Euro) + fare from the termini to Ottaviano-s. Pietro station (1 Euro). The 7 to 8 seater shuttle took three groups of people including us, and we were lucky to be the first one to let off, right in front of the B&B! We took the shuttle again when we return to the airport, and we were the only ones in the spacious shuttle, better than a taxi!
Rome was more beautiful and clean than we expected, 8 days were plenty for us to visit all the main attractions and even go back to enjoy some of the sites again.
The warm hospitality at QuodLibet certainly provided a good base for us to explore the city. I would definitely recommend this place!
