This guest spent his holiday in bed and breakfast in Rome at Quodlibet on: 8/2015
My wife and I are travellers who enjoy the good things in life ? eg. comfortable accommodation, good food, great location, but are not interested in paying the premium of hotels. We also prefer the authentic experience of a b&b or a locally owned apartment over the sometimes sterile and uniform environment of a hotel. We like to meet locals and enjoy a local experience. If this sounds familiar to you, this review might be helpful.
Quod Libet was fantastic! From the moment we checked in with Agostino we were made to feel welcome. We used the transfer service from the airport to Quod Libet (definitely recommended - for 47 EUR you cut out the hassle of navigating trains, transfers and local trains after an international flight). Its even cheaper than a taxi fare and Alessandro (the driver) is a welcome and friendly face after a long journey by plane!
Agostino was very helpful on checkin and gave us a map and recommendations for restaurants. Agostino was very welcoming, and made us feel completely at home - he clearly takes an interest in his customers and goes to great lengths to make your stay comfortable.
The room was fabulous. Rome is an amazing city, but good rooms are hard to come by. Quod Libet is an exception. The room was bright, airy and filled with amenities. It is small, however functional, and perfectly adequate for a couple travelling. The nespresso machine and bar fridge were excellent, the air conditioning was really good to have with 35 degree days, and the bathroom was sparkling and comfortable.
The room was quiet (double glazing) and bed comfortable. We were very happy.
Breakfast - what a feast!! Agostino really put on a great breakfast - coffee, pastries, fruit, cheeses, meats, bread and yoghurts. It was really filling which was great for a long day of exploring Rome!
There were several rooms at Quod Libet, so at breakfast time, expect to share with some other couples/families the breakfast room - it was nice to meet other travellers!
The location was fabulous, it had everything close by - shops, phone store (to buy a SIM card), ATM's, the metro station and taxi/bus zones.
Do not waste time comparing/looking at other accommodation in Rome - this place ticks all the boxes, provides good value and then delivers a great experience. A very good place to base yourself in Rome and particularly if you have just arrived after a long trip from your home country.
Thankyou Agostino for a great stay!
