Arco del Lauro
Via dell'Arco de Tolomei 29 / 27, Rome, 00153, Italy
A Convenient, Affordable B&B in Trastevere
We booked three rooms at Arco del Lauro through friendly email exchanges with the proprietor Lorenza. One for my husband and me, one for our daughters, and one for a friend with whom we were traveling. Breakfast is provided through vouchers at nearby cafes: cappucino and croissant. Daniela was on hand to assist us with arrangements if necessary. The beds were comfortable. Rooms were clean. Yogurt, juice and Lorenza's famous Limoncello were in the fridge for the taking. Free wireless made it easy for everyone to share our adventures with the folks back home. Lorenza arranged for a taxi service to/from the airport as well -- large enough for the 5 of us and our bags. It ended up costing about the same as public transit would have.
There are actually two buildings to the B&B. Lorenza thoughtfully arranged to give us extra keys for the second building, because our girls' room (and our friend's) was there.
I highly recommend Arco del Lauro
Unique Quality: The location is great, just steps away from the Tiber River. The Ghetto was a very short walk through Isola Tiberina. Viale Trastevere was less than 5 minutes away. We walked to all the major sites. The family loved the neighborhood. It's "Old Rome" -- cobblestone streets, narrow avenues, neighborhood markets and trattorias. Very cool.
Directions: Piazza in Pinscula, Trastevere
A lovely b&b which actually is a tiny hotel
We stayed five nights in this very tiny hotel that likes to call it self a b&b. The owner is not there all the time but when she is and she and her staff are most helpful providing better information about Rome that most concierges. The rooms are impeccable, decorated in a minimalist way, bathrooms are small by\ut stylish and have all you might need. There is cablein each room , ceilings are very high since it is located in an old building. From the outside it looks very old but once inside it is charming.
In the front desk there is a phone for free local calls, and free internet 24 hours 7 days a week.Also two tiny fridges with free yogourt lemoncello and other goodies. Breakfast is served in a nearby cafe. It is simple Italian continental breakfast consisting of capuccino or tea and a croissant. However before going there you can have an orange juice from the tiny fridge.Excellent location in the heart of the Trastevere,
Unique Quality: No views. But what a location.
This is a place with ambiance and an extraordinary owner with a welcoming personality that makes a big difference.

A Great Place to Stay if you want the real Rome
We have just returned from an eight-day stay at Arco del Lauro. What a wonderful B & B! It was a great value, and Lorenza, the owner, could not have been more thoughtful or more accommodating. Our room was clean and quiet and the mattress was comfortable. The free hi-speed Internet was a huge help for last-minute planning and weather checking, etc. We also loved the location in Trastevere. It was a 3 minute walk to the bridge crossing Tiber island, with the old Jewish Ghetto on the other side. Campo de' Fiori, Piazza Navona and other important places were an easy walk. Lorenza's restaurant recommendations were right on the mark and we really appreciated her sense of humor and warmth. We would definitely recommend staying here and look forward to staying at Arco del Lauro again.
The Arco del Lauro was perfect for our stay in Rome. The location in Trastevere was wonderful for walking around Rome and exploring the city. We walked everywhere except the Vatican, and were able to take the bus there with no problem.
The rooms were fairly inexpensive and included a breakfast voucher for a nearby cafe, which was fun. The rooms were small, but very nice and newly redone.
There was coffee and snacks and homemade lemoncello! in the entryway for guests to help themselves.
Very nice B&B, would definitely recommend it.
Perfect Little Gem !
We are frequent travellers to Rome and know the area well. Arco del Lauro was an excellent find and we will hopefully be returning soon. The ensuite was great and the room was bright with a contemporary feel to it. The location is brillant on the quieter side of Trastevere with lots and places to eat and drink nearby. You can easily walk to the Roman Forum or catch the tram towards town. We would highly recommend this place to people are thinking of visting Rome who are looking for B&B accomodation.
Great place to stay!
Just returned from a lovely stay at the Arco Del Lauro. For the value-conscious traveller, this is a great choice. You won't find anything better for the price in Rome. It is not a luxury hotel, but it is very clean and the rooms are quite comfortable. The bathrooms could even be classified as luxurious!! The place has obviously been recently renovated. As well, there is internet and a phone for free use by guests.
Lorenza, the hostess, is very helpful and kind. She makes great reccomendations on area attractions. We especially liked the restaurant Enzo, just a block away from the B&B, very authentic and delicious Roman cooking.
I will definitely return to this B&B and reccomend it to friends.
I must add to the chorus -- it's great
The location of this comfortable bed-and-breakfast is everything we'd hoped for...nestled in the charming streets of Trastevere, minutes by foot from a bridge over the Tiber, public transport, and some major attractions (including the "mouth of truth" from the movie Roman Holiday). A longer, but doable walk to many more sites, plus a short taxi ride to the rest. There are only a few rooms and a narrow hallway with an open laptop for all to use the Internet and a phone for local calls. Our room and bathroom were comfortably sized and spotless. The property is "manned" for only a few hours a day. When we were there, the proprieter, Lorenza, was not in town, but I feel that I know her anyway from the friendly and helpful emails we have exchanged. Instead, she had assistants (also friendly and helpful!) who came in the morning and evening. By all means take Lorenza up on her offer to have a taxi meet you at the airport for 35 Euros.
We stayed at this great B&B in October for several days and loved it! It is located close to some of the best Italian restaurants you will find...just ask Lauro! True authentic Roman cooking!
The room was very nice and Lauro was a great host really helping us with site seeing as well as restaurant suggestions and directions to the train station.
Our shower drain did not work good the first two days but it was not a huge deal. The location of this B&B, while hard to find, is great and very safe. Please note, there is no sign and you literally have to look for the building number and the street she gives you as directions. The price is also a big factor with us picking this property, she really has good prices for such a nice little place in Rome.
Best Choice in Rome!!!
We had a wonderful stay at this B&B in Rome.
The location- in Trastevere- the most lovely area of Rome.
The room- large, newly furnished and decorated, a fantastic modern bathroom. The room is completely quiet at night time which I think is very important!
The breakfast- You are given a voucher for a pastry and coffee or tea at a local cafe and we also purchased a few more things so we had a full breakfast.
Inside the b&b- you have access to tea/coffee with biscuits and yoghurts which is quite handy.
The hostess- probably the most genuine friendly and helpful hostess we have come across on our travels. Lorenza is a lovely person and went way out of her way to help us on a number of occasions.
BEST CHOICE IN ROME!!!
We loved our visit here! My husband and I were meeting my daughter and ended up needing extra accomodations for her and Lorenza was an absolute dear. She changed our room so we had space for her and arranged for our return after travelling. She was helpful and efficient and willing to do whatever she could to make our visit an excellent one.
The rooms were quiet, tasteful and clean. I would highly recommend this to anyone!
