This guest spent his holiday in bed and breakfast in Rome at Quodlibet on: 12/2011
The hospitality and attention to small details from the team at Quodlibet, especially Gianluca and Augustino were unrivalled from other Italian B&Bs we stayed at all over the country. Gianluca prepares such a generous and delectable breakfast feast which pleased the typical fussy Singaporean foodies we were. Different teas and various cold cuts daily which we truly enjoyed. Cleanliness, comfort and creativity found in every themed room. The Summer and Spring rooms are colourful and cheery, great for children but the Winter and Autumn rooms are more subtle and cosy for couples. From the time we were picked up by private van at the airport, we felt safe and taken care of. They really know the area and good restaurants so do heed their recommendations on transport and tourist attractions. I had wonderful conversations with them just because they were so warm and friendly and had so much to offer on travel experiences. B&B is perfectly located 1min from subway station and 10mins walk to St Peters Basillica (go at 6am to avoid the snaking queues and don't listen to freelance guides who tout on the streets and claim to give entrance discounts and skip queues). At the main junction there is the best Gelato shop 5min up ahead of the subway which sells the best ice cream I've had in Italy, seriously, because I was on a pistachio gelato hunt. Think shop is called Blue.
With their savvy knowledge and fine finesse, you cannot go wrong with Quodlibet because it is run with love and by family. I was a flight attendant and this little quad-room B&B surpassed my discerning expectations. With this review that is my credit to them being duly deserved, I don't think I'll be able to get a reservation again next time since I'm sure this new establishment will become so popular. Gianluca even helped us lug our 12bags down to the car after we checked out. He was just the sweetest gentleman (taking the stairs instead of the small lift with us.) Really, this topped off te start of our wonderful Roman experience.
