Cleopatra - Rome
The Cleopatra is a budget Rome B&B situated to the south of the historic city center in the trendy Testaccio quarter. In the days of the Empire this area on the east bank of the River Tiber was a loading site for trading vessels, while in more modern times it became the center of the local butchery trade. Today it is a vibrant, cosmopolitan district packed with fashionable bars and some of the best restaurants in Rome. Five minutes’ walk from this boutique Rome townhouse you’ll find the Pyramid of Caius Cestius, built as the tomb of a powerful magistrate, and one of the best-preserved of Rome’s ancient buildings—visits are by prior arrangement. Venture past the pyramid, 15 minutes from the hotel, to wander through the adjacent Parco della Resistenza dell’Otto Settembre at the foot of the Aventine Hill, one of the famous Seven Hills of Rome. The Circus Maximus, site of the legendary chariot races, can be reached on foot from the hotel in 20 minutes; the area is now a public park and is still the scene of mass public celebrations and superstar rock concerts.
The Cleopatra B&B is a cozy, intimate guesthouse full of charming touches and quirky decor—check out the fish tank in the lobby complete with its own mini-Colosseum, or the unique design on the entry gate! Breakfast is served informally in the bar, or you can choose to eat al fresco on the pretty plant-filled terrace on warm days. Free WiFi is provided for guests’ use. Pets are welcome to share your stay in this friendly B&B—just contact the Cleopatra in advance to make all the necessary arrangements. Parents traveling with kids in tow can request an extra bed in their room.
Guests recommend the Cleopatra for its cleanliness and value for money. The friendly, helpful staff are praised for their flexibility and professionalism. Convenient public transport links are appreciated by visitors keen to explore further afield.
