What Past Guests Are Saying
St. Paul, Minnesota
Wonderful location, great host, excellent place to stay near the
This is an excellent location in central Rome, particularly so if you have some Vatican-centric activities in your itinerary. Matilde is an excellent host and the B&B; is very nice. Our room was quite comfortable and quiet. I would highly recommend For My Friends B&B.; It is an excellent value for the money.
excellent en tous points (accueil, situation, confort, propretĂ©)
Matilda est une personne d'une grande finesse et dĂ©licatesse.
son logement est trĂ¨s beau et d'une grande propretĂ©.
Ă©galement trĂ¨s bien situĂ©.
les petits dĂ©jeuners sont vraiment copieux.
nous sommes une famille franĂ§aise avec deux adolescents de 16 et 14 ans qui ont aussi Ă©tĂ© enchantĂ©s par le lieu et l'accueil.
adresse que nous recommandons vivement.
I don't want to tell you all the details...
Matilda was so incredibly thoughtful and insightful. She did things to make our stay comfortable that you'd find hard to believe. Really.
Her home is absolutely gorgeous. She has a gift for color and pattern and texture. Everything is spotless. She had extra soaps and shampoos in the bathroom, and a clean, powerful hairdryer. Great towels. Easy-to-understand and adjust radiators. Ditto for the shower controls. Did I mention everything is always spotless? We were there 5 days.
The breakfast is out-of-this-world huge and varied. No matter your nationality or background, you'll find more than enough to eat of things you like. Fresh fruits, yogurts, pastries made that day, jams, jellies (homemade, some of them!), hard-boiled eggs, butter, spreads, granola, milk, teas of all kinds, all presented in pretty dishes like a food stylist! And coffee... she kept replenishing the coffee without being asked, and every day asked "Is there something else you would like for tomorrow's breakfast? Eggs, pastries?" I can't remember everything she offered for breakfast, it was so huge!
The whole place was quiet, very easy to find, and it was so easy to get to St. Peter's and the Ottaviano metro.
Matilda gave us the perfect balance of privacy and assistance. While I've been writing this review, I've been trying to think of anything to add that's not positive, and the only thing is - I was there were a little more drawer space. That's all. Lighting, heating, sound, beds, sheets, cleanliness, bath, towels, food, washing machine, etc., etc. Perfect. I can recommendation whole-heartedly.

Dear Stephanie and Family,
thanks a lot for your time, and for your so detailed review ! Thanks for your nice photo.
Anyway the thing which made me more happy is that You have been fine in our B&B !
Both the accomodations and Matilde were exeptional!!
Matilde was an incledible host, she looked after us and made as feel as if we were at home. She made us a wonderful breakfast every morning and we had an opportunity to chat about our plans for the day and offer many helpful suggestions. Her recommendations for dinner were also very good and we enjoyed the personal attention and great food at each restaurant she suggested. The location was very convenient allowing for us to tour the City using the public transit and all it's wonders. You can access any form of transportation you choose in just a short walk or you could even walk to many of the areas in the surrounding neighborhoods. It was quiet and very safe even well into the evening. We are a family of 5 with kids 13 and 15 and their grandmother with us. The rooms were perfect for the 5 of us, very clean, lots of room and all the comforts of home. The artistic decore and the impecable taste of Matilde certainly added to our Roma experience. The courtyard provided an added touch that is unique, with the ability to meet many of the very pleasant neighbors in the building. They were all so very nice and we shared many long chats with a number of them. They also appreciate Matilde very much. When we return to Roma (and we will) we will stay with Matilde again and expect to continue the friendship we have gained! Hopefully some day she will acccept our invitation to come stay with us in Canada.

Cool urban lodging
Recently stayed at this b&b; for three nights on the tail-end of my honeymoon. Due to transportation issues, we arrived nearly two hours later than our intended check-in time, but the owner, Matilde, was very understanding and even offered us some of her homemade lunch (we probably looked starved, because we were). The b&b; was easy to find, just a few minutes walking distance from the Ottaviano subway station. It is in a traditional Roman low-rise apartment complex with a courtyard, on a quiet street with many similar residential buildings and a few businesses. The place is a testament to Matilde's impeccable taste. She showcases her Florentine, Master of Fine arts degree in the entrance, but really, just the walls ooze her artistic expertise. We stayed in the double occupancy room which is simple, tasteful and has numerous details to appreciate, from classic prints on the wall to a retro mini Pepsi fridge. The room is small by North american standards, but quite spacious for a European capital. The en suite bathroom was large and very modern with it's monochromatic grey tiles, had a blow dryer, linens and toiletries at our disposal. Continental breakfast was delicious, always on time and very nicely presented in the pretty living/dining area (accessible only at breakfast). You could even hear Matilde working away on her latest sculpure in the background. There was no air conditioning, but we were there during august and sleeping at night was still comfortable thanks to a fan and very large windows (big shutters to keep the bugs out). We didn't spend much time indoors during the day, except for one afternoon nap, which was warm, but bearable. The close proximity to the Vatican was great, you can walk there in about 10 minutes. The neighbourhood is not high-end by any means, but not shady. Felt safe coming home late at night. I would totally recommend this place for anyone looking for a cozy and original place to stay (our stay was under 85 euros during high season).
Very warm host in a perfect location
We really enjoyed our stay in Mathilde's B&B.; The room was quiet and comfortable with its proper showerroom. Our host gave us a warme hospitality and helped us with all our question. Our three days in Roma were perfect and we would not hesitate to come back to her place.

Io mia moglie e i miei due bambini ,di 5 e 9 anni,abbiamo trascorso dal 27 aprile al 1 maggio dei giorni veramente molto piacevoli presso il B&B; for My Friends di Matilde Pavone. Casa molto confortevole,pulita e ben arredata.Colazione abbondante e ben curata.Matilde e' veramente una persona gentilissima e dolcissima.Consigliamo a chiunque...famiglie, coppie e single questo B&B.;
Ciao Matilde a presto. Luca e famiglia
Accoglienza e ospitalitĂ incantevoli!
E' senz'altro uno tra i migliori Bed & Breakfast in cui sia stata: l'opinione Ă¨ largamente condivisa anche da mia figlia di 13 anni e da mia madre di 74 con cui ho trascorso un magnifico weekend. La posizione centrale consente di raggiungere facilmente (con i mezzi pubblici) tutti i luoghi imperdibili di Roma. La stanza (con soppalco) Ă¨ luminosa, ampia e molto accogliente. Abbiamo trovato il confort e il gusto di una casa ben organizzata e una padrona di casa molto simpatica che ci ha riservato un'accoglienza perfetta e discreta.
La stanza Ă¨ curata nei dettagli e il bagno Ă¨ spazioso e ben organizzato. I servizi sono eccellenti: colazione ricca, abbondante e di ottima qualitĂ , possibilitĂ di connessione wifi e un'ottima biblioteca in camera a disposizone degli ospiti.
Siamo partite con una gran voglia di tornare e di consigliare questo indirizzo agli amici.
Uno straordinario e confortante connubio tra ospitalitĂ e piacere estetico offertoci dalla premura del servizio e dalla raffinata eleganza dei locali.
La posizione ne fa, inoltre, una vera e propria preziositĂ incastonata tra le bellezze della cittĂ eterna.
grandissima cortesia, location magnifica (a due passi dal Vaticano, quattro passi da Piazza del Popolo, sei passi da piazza Navona), pulizia, comfort, ottima colazione. Insomma: difficile avere meglio per quel prezzo a Roma
Oltre ad avere le qualitĂ necessarie per poter definirlo un B&B; eccellente (centralitĂ ,pulizia,comoditĂ ,eleganza),ho sempre trovato nella padrona di casa una sincera predisposizione all'ospitalitĂ ,non frequentemente riscontrabile.
Dal mio punto di vista,un soggiorno al For My Friends equivale al farmi una coccola.

Un Soggiorno a Roma Indimnticabile
Recentemente sono stata al B&B; For my friends a Roma e mi sono trovata benissimo. La zona Ă¨ centrale e vicinissima alla metropolitana. La casa Ă¨ accogliente, elegante senza essere eccessiva.Pulizia, accoglienza senza invasione della propria privacy regnano in quel luogo e il prezzo Ă¨ accessibile.Quando sono riparttita ho avuto una sensazione strana:come se lasciassi la mia casa.
