Chaplin Bed and Breakfast Rome

Chaplin B&B
Chaplin B&B

Perfectly located in a safe and quiet but extremely central Rome neighborhood, the Chaplin Bed and Breakfast Rome is the ideal base for your Roman holiday.

Accommodation in Rome, one of the most popular tourist towns of Europe, is usually not cheap. The Chaplin Hostel B&B, despite its central position and its welcoming service, remains one of the more inexpensive bed & breakfasts or hostels in Rome.

Just a two minute walk from the Bed and Breakfast Chaplin Hostel is Roma Termini: Rome’s main train station and public transportation hub. Take the metro, bus or train from Rome Termini to just about anywhere in the city or outside Rome. The train and bus from both of Rome’s airports also stop at Rome Termini.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

Katarina and Rene also run the the Little Italy Bed and Breakfast (details tomorrow!), which is also in Rome, so if the Chaplin Hostel B&B is fully booked, you might like to try their other B&B.

The B&B owners are able to answer questions in a range of languages: English, Italian, Dutch, German, French, Danish, Spanish.

The experience accumulated by the owner, first working for other hotels, hostels and bed and breakfasts in Rome, then through running the former Kerouac Bed and Breakfast, guarantees a quick and accurate answer to queries.

The Chaplin Bed and Breakfast’s amenities include:

  • there is no curfew or lock-out at the Bed and Breakfast Chaplin Hostel
  • the rooms are cleaned daily
  • bed linen and towels are provided at the Bed and Breakfast Chaplin Hostel Rome
  • free maps of Rome
  • central heating system
  • free luggage storage after check-out
  • hairdryers, alarm-clocks and umbrellas on loan
  • discounts for some Rome restaurants
  • bookings for guided tours (of Rome, but also Firenze, Venezia, Pompei, etc.)
  • bookings for airport (Rome Fiumicino and Rome Ciampino) taxis
  • bookings for museums, opera, theatre etc.
  • laundromat and internet point around the corner
  • garage next door
  • tea and coffee making facilities
  • refrigerator for guest use
  • tv room


No curfew or lock-out, unlike many similar B&Bs in Rome. Once you have checked in, you are presented with a set of keys and you can return as late as you like, so you will not have to miss out on any of the Rome nightlife.  See the Spanish Steps, the neighborhood and Piazza Navona beautifully lit up at night, and visit the nightspots of Trastevere, Testaccio and San Lorenzo.

A hearty breakfast is served from 8 till 10am. Upon request, we will also bring it to your room. If you leave early, in order to go and line up for the Vatican Museums, or to catch a train or plane out of Rome, the hostel’s owners will make sure that you will find some food waiting for you when you get up.

Smoking policy – smoking is not allowed in the buiding, but several of the hostel’s rooms have balconies, so please let them know if you are a smoker and they will give you one of those rooms, provided you do, indeed, smoke only on the balcony.

Fiore at the Ferrara Biennial Art Exhibtion

Gaetano Fiore and Marco Post Morello at the Ferrara Biennial Art Exhibtion

Once again, I’m pleased to be able to report that recognition for the talent of Italian artist friend of mine Gaetano Fiore is increasing. Gaetano also tells me that BlogfromItaly.com has made a contribution to his visibility, as I had hoped. I’m pleased to announce that Fiore’s work is now on display as part of the ‘Dissolvenze Incrociate’ – biennial art exhibition in Ferrara.

Congratuations to Gaetano Fiore are in order, and credit also must go to Virgilio Patarini of Milan’s Zamenhof Gallery for his stirling efforts in helping increase the visibility of skilled but not yet well-known Italian artists and photographers, such as Marco Post Morello.
