A Home Away From Home - Rome

Eats and Sheet is a little piece of tuscan charm just outside of the city. The perfect resting place after a day spent stomping the streets of Rome.

I came across Eats and Sheets when looking for somewhere affordable to stay in Rome on tripadvisor. Being placed slightly out of the city the cost per night for Eats and Sheets was greatly lower then any other place to stay in the city. With some fantatic reviews already on Tripadviser we decied to book for our 2 night stay. 

Upon arrival a the B&B we were instantly impressed by it’s outwards appearance and Italian charm. Giordano was there to great us, showing us to our room and telling us about the local area. Recommending a couple of restaurants which we visited and were thoroughly impressed by. 

Another feature of the B&B is its communal areas, there is a communal drinks area with teas and coffees available to all guests as well as a large garden area with outdoor furniture. Unfortunately we didn't really go the right time of year to make the most of the outdoor area but if you visit in the summer it would be the perfect place to sit back and enjoy a chilled processco.

The breakfast which comes as part of the room rate isn't actually served in at the B&B instead you have to make a short walk down the driveway to the local cafĂ©. Run by two charming ladies you can choose from fresh pastries sandwiches and coffee, paid for by a token (proved by B&B). The service was fantastic and it’s a lovely place to sit and watch the locals on their morning commute. 

The room at the B&B was clean, spacious and modern with an on-suite showeroom. It felt like the rooms had been recently renovated and it felt like you were staying in the comfort of someone's home. 

The B&B is about a 30 minute (slow) walk out from the Vatican or a 5 minute walk to the metro station where you can quickly and easily get into the centre of Rome. It is also very close to a bus stop with a main route into the city centre, if you don't like taking the Metro. 

Find Eats and Sheets here.
They have two locations in Rome Vaticano where we stayed and Colosseo which is more central.
