A Travellerspoint blog

Long weekend in Rome begins

We had booked B&B G&G online, and had requested a late check in. By the time our flight landed late and then we finally got there, it was later than expected, but they let us right in, explained what we needed to know, and asked us what time we wanted them to make us breakfast.The B&B is set in an apartment building in a quiet neighborhood near the Vatican metro stop. It doesn't have a big sign out front, but there is a clearly-marked button by the huge entrance to the building that says B&B G&G. Upon entering, there is a super-old fashioned cage elevator, which we really enjoyed riding, even though it was only 1 floor up. I could imagine somebody in the 1930s using this “newfangled contraption.”The various bedrooms in the apartment are rented out individually, but share a kitchen area and bathrooms. Everything was very clean, well-maintained, and well-decorated. I felt like we were staying in a place that should have been twice what we paid for it, except that the bathrooms were shared. The room we had was HUGE for Europe. We had a king-sized bed, a sitting area with couch-chairs and a table, as well as plenty of additional space to spread out. The air conditioning worked well. Overall, I have to highly recommend the place.The only disadvantages are that there isn't a 24-hour front desk, and breakfast only starts at 8, so if you're the type who wants to get out into the city early, you'll want to find your own breakfast.We were pretty excited to be on vacation, so after we got settled in, we headed out to explore a bit and to grab a late-night dinner. It was after 11, so a lot of places weren't open, but we did find a cute little restaurant with pretty tiles on the walls that still had people working there. By the time we finished it (pasta, caprese salad, and house wine) we were ready for bed.
