Safe neighborhood with friendly owner but avoid cold months
Avaliou em 8 de Dezembro de 2019
The main reason this B&B is rated so highly is due to the lovely Elisa who is the owner. She has a friendly nature and explained all the good places to visit and eat. The area itself seemed safe with a top floor apartment surrounded by local residents.
We went in December in which weather around 12 degrees. The room itself was very cold even with the air-conditioning heating, and the bathroom was like a fridge freezer! The bathroom had tall windows and no way to keep heat in so the floor was stone cold. The bathroom needed a good scrub and the shower had multiple areas of mould. The bed and pillows were deflated so mixed with the cold air was uncomfortable through the night. As the apartment is shared by others, we often heard other guests through the night banging doors as they left.
Breakfast was very limited and we were given tokens for a small bar across the road that serves small croissants and coffee only. We had to pay to upgrade places in Rome.

Urban Pine is located in a quiet and safe neighborhood and its near the metro station which makes siteseing very easy. Colosseum is in walking distance. Clean excellent wifi in the room. Elisa who welcomed us gave us many tips in where to go. Always felt like going home when we returned tired late at night to the room. Hope to come again very soon. Ciao ragazzi...!
Lovely bed and breakfast

Urban pine is a lovely bed and breakfast. The room was spotless and we had a quaint little balcony. The young woman, who showed us round on the owners behalf couldn't have been more friendly, and informative. An assortment of breakfasts were provided. There is a communal kitchen, where you can make a meal, cups of tea etc. You also get vouchers to go to a nearby cafe for croissant and coffee. Clean towels everyday and beds made. Urban pine is about 25 mins walk from the Colleseum. The metro is literally 5 mins away, which is simple to use and cheap. All in all would definitely stay here again. Loved it.
Excellent Hospitality at Urban Pine

Great location, lovely room, excellent customer service.
Urban Pine is a b&b located in lovely apartment building - walk through the outer doors into a beautiful courtyard then into the ornate lift up to the 5th floor. There are 4 rooms and we stayed in the 'Coulter Pine' *Deluxe King Suite' which was of a suitable size for 2 adults and 2 teenagers with a king size bed and double sofa bed, bathroom (shower). Our room looked out on to Via La Spezia and the window was double glazed and shuttered which helped keep out some of the noise from the street. The b&b was very clean and well maintained and all the furniture and facilities were modern and of good quality. There is also a small kitchen shared by all the guests, suitable for cooking meals, a dining area, and a small outdoor area with table and chairs.
Anita was in touch before our trip and gave us hints and tips for our visit and suggestions of places to visit/current exhibitions etc. She also arranged for a taxi to collect us from the airport (beware of scam / thief taxi drivers trying to get you to go with them instead) with a cost of 50 Euros directly paid to the driver (which was around the same price/slight less expensive than for 4 of us to take the train/metro).
Elise was there to greet us when we arrived and told us all about the b&b and the surrounding area, routes to places of interest, restaurant suggestions etc and she looked after us for our whole stay - she was fantastic - very friendly and knowledgeable.
For breakfast vouchers are provided for a cafe 2 minutes walk along Via La Spezia (called La Spezia) where the vouchers could be exchanged for a croissant/pastry and a drink. Also, there is a selection of biscuits and drinks at all times in the kitchen area and a fresh cake/tart provided every day - delicious!
The b&b is in a great location, within walking distance for all the sights (Colosseum 20 min, Pantheon 30 min) and also only 5 min walk to St Giovanni metro station as well as being close to restaurants, a market and shops.
In summary we had a lovely stay at Urban Pine - we couldn't have asked for a better b&b for our trip to Rome. Thank you very much Anita for providing such a great place to stay and to Elise for such excellent hospitality!

Great location! San Giovanni Metro station is right at the corner or you can also walk to some of the main attractions. The place is simply adorable, way beyond our expectations. Very clean room and spacious private bathroom. Elisa was amazing with lots of suggestions and recommendations (and a free map ☺). For breakfast, we were given vouchers to this very friendly cafe across the street (La Spezia) but you also have 24hs access to the kitchen to prepare your own breakfast or take advantage of some delicious cookies and pastries offered by the staff.
We'll definitely be back !!
