Clean, cozy, and modern, with only two guest rooms (each with
private bathroom), and a self-service kitchen, Gli Scipioni is an intimate two-pearl bed and breakfast option. The location is hard to beat, it's within five minutes of the Vatican Museum, train
station, and St. Peter’s Basilica, right next to a metro stop and surrounded by
restaurants and bars.
This property is best suited to couples or business travelers who prefer a private, personal
space rather than a hotel. Overall, it's an excellent choice for those who want a private room and morning meal and don't need further frills.
On the third floor of a beautiful building along a busy
cobblestone street, this tiny, immaculate, two-bedroom bed and breakfast consists of a one-floor
apartment with freshly painted white walls, black-and-white photos, and brightly colored
IKEA-style furniture, cabinets, and upholstery. A small elevator brings guests and their luggage upstairs. The common areas include just
the small kitchen where guests can help themselves to the stocked fridge of
eggs, yogurt, cheese, and fruit as well as the cappuccino maker.
Surrounded by restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacies, and
banks, and within a five-minute walk of the Vatican Museum and St. Peter’s Basilica, Gil
Scipioni is also about a block from the Ottaviano-San Pietro metro station,
which means easy access to the Colloseum, Roman Forum, and other attractions within 15
minutes. The Roman Court is less than a 10-minute walk away, as is Via Cola di
Rienzo, one of Rome’s most famous strips of clothing stores. One street over,
Piazza Risorgimento is a hub for taxis, buses and trams that can take guests anywhere in the city.
There is a cheerful IKEA feel to both rooms at Gil Scipioni. Both the Orange Room, replete with bright-orange accent paint, curtains, desk, and
love seat, and the Green Room, with the same decor but in lime green, have queen-size
beds and plenty of space for an extra cot, which is
available upon request. Each room has free Wi-Fi, a satellite TV, mini-fridge, kettle
with tea and coffee, and private bathroom with bidet, cube shower, and hair
dryer, plus a plush robe and a pair of slippers for each guest. The windows overlook the quaint and quiet street below.
In addition to the brightly colored rooms with private bath,
mini-fridges, tea kettle, Wi-Fi, robe and slippers, guests have access to the self-service kitchen stocked with breakfast foods and snacks. The Gil
Scipioni staff can print tickets, help with restaurant and tour reservations, and for an extra fee, line up airport and train station pick-up or drop off. Wi-Fi is free. Parking isn't available on-site and can be difficult to find on the street.
