About this listing

From my B&B you have a stunning view of St.Peter's dome! There is a good double bed & private bathroom. There is also a cat, Tommy Tiger. With a 7 minute walk you get to the Vatican, and in 15 to the center. Check in before midnight please :)

The space

Located just a super short walk from St. Peter's Square, and look up at a stunning view of Michelangelo's dome on St. Peter's Basilica brilliantly lit in the evening moonlight.

Guest access

I offer you a large, private room with a queen bed, satellite tv, ceiling fan and air conditioning. If you are in Rome during a warm period and would like to use the air conditioning there would be an additional charge of 5 Euros a day. The private bath is across the hall and has a stall shower.
There is a free Wi-FI Internet connection. Breakfast will be served in a large, sunny kitchen (however, the kitchen is not available for general guest use, sorry!).

Interaction with guests

My friend and I had a great time staying at Eugene's for our trip in Rome. Beautiful home, excellent location to Vatican City, and Eugene was a superb host!

The pleasure that Gene finds from living in Rome is contagious. He made it easy to get to the places that we wanted to see and talking to him about them the next day was a fun part of the trip. I hope we get to stay at Gene’s place again someday.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Gene in Rome. He was meticulous about advanced communication, helping us navigate the public transportation system to get to his house (which was easy in retrospect but intimidating in advance). He served a fabulous breakfast with his two kitties, Tiger and Wolfie. He had lots of great suggestions for both sightseeing and dining throughout the city. Bravo and thanks Gene!

This was our first international trip, and we were nervous to navigate Roma jet-lagged and after dark. However, Gene's directions and hospitality were impeccable, and we could not have picked a better place to stay!

Eugene is an amazing and wonderful host; he really went above and beyond for my short stay in Rome. Location is close to Vatican (walking) and bus stations are very accessible nearby. Eugene gave us excellent recommendations on food and sites to explore, and made us an excellent breakfast with fresh squeezed orange juice every morning. His two cats, tommy and wolfie provided us with ample entertainment when we were home. The room is clean and spacious, with a lovely terrace that has a view of the basilica and is the perfect place to end an evening with some wine. Private bathroom across the hall. I look forward to visiting Italy again, and would love to stay with Eugene once more!! Truly great experience!!

You must stay at gene's place if you are going to Rome. Not only is it a perfect location, but he is such a wonderful and kind host. His recommendations and advice for exploring the city are priceless. We were in walking distance to the Vatican, and his place is very close to the train station and bus stops as well. We had a very short stay, but we were still able to explore so many aspects of this beautiful city. The terrace has an unbeatable view, the fresh squeezed orange juice for breakfast was delicious, and his amusing cats were quite entertaining. We will definitely be back!

We stayed at Eugene's place our first two nights in Italy. It was wonderful to have a knowledgeable and helpful host for our transition to Italy! The room and bathroom were comfortable and private and the view from the patio was stunning! The location was great - walkable to many sites but very quiet and right on a main bus line. Thank you Eugene for sharing your home, breakfast and a little about your life too! We would recommend Eugene's home by the dome for anyone traveling to Rome.
