“Chic American-Italian owned B&B, with friendly multilingual staff and a central location”
Creams, bronzes and browns colour the rooms, which are comfortable, contemporary and moderately sized. The beds have firm mattresses, plentiful soft pillows, crisp linen and dark brown velvet cushions. The floors are parquet, pale and uncarpeted in 5 of the Daphne Trevi rooms; all the rest have ceramic tiles. Bed types vary from singles and doubles to twins and kings, the main difference between room types is size.
The B&B has a quiet vibe, with rooms spread across 3 floors of a residential building. If your budget can stretch to it, stay in a large, bright Junior Suite. The Apartment is great for groups or large families, as it is made up of the 3 double bedrooms and sitting area on the second floor.
For families, we'd recommed Daphne Trevi: Family Room with can sleep 4 comfortably. All rooms are ensuite, bar 2 Standard rooms on the second floor which share a bathroom.
Served in a sunny, tranquil breakfast room, the plentiful buffet breakfast offers cold meats, cheeses, croissants, jams and fresh fruit. To drink there are juices, American coffee, various teas, freshly made cappuccinos or café lattes. Breakfast is the only meal available, but staff can help with recommendations for lunch or dinner.
There are hundreds of restaurants within walking distance. Winners include Colline Emiliane, next door to Daphne Trevi, which serves up superb cucina bolognese and has some of Rome’s finest pasta. Try Ristoante Matricianella Roma for typical Roman cuisine, such as the wonderful aubergine parmigiana and fried ricotta appetizers. Also recommended is traditional family-run Armando al Pantheon, located (as you may imagine) behind the Pantheon, which serves a range of spaghetti dishes and roasted meats.
