Bed & Breakfast in Rome: Ancient Romance (b & b star)

Via Ottaviano, 9 00192 - Rome
Average rate: € 70,00 Bookmark this bed and breakfast

zoom  Ancient RomanceThe idea that gives life to our project consists in conciliating the luxury elegance of the style with a warm familiar hospitality enriched with all comforts and attentions typical of a four stars hotel. This is the reason why we realised three different rooms each developing a specific literary and artistic theme. Each private bath is conceived in relation to the room style.
Camera Trilussa: the room is inspired by the 19th century famous roman poet. Its style represents the historical and social way of life of the early fifties roman middle class. The tuff walls, the baldachin and the artistic representations will bring you back to the eternal city described by D'Annunzio: sumptuous and rich of contrasts.
Camera La dolce vita: the room is inspired by the 1960 famous film directed by Federico Fellini, with Anita Ekberg and Marcello Mastroianni. Its furniture respects the white and black photographic contrasts that sublime the poetry of the "fellinian" cinematographic image. You will suddenly be immersed in the roman essence of the big Italian economic boom.
Camera La Divina Commedia: the room draws inspiration by the masterpiece of the Italian literary tradition. The absolute uniqueness of Dante Alighieri's artistic genius is celebrated through a furniture style that will live you without words, bringing you back to the 14th century. You will appreciate the typical colours and suggestions of the early Middle Ages.

The Reception will welcome you with the pleasant sound of jazz music and the sober vivacity of the furniture which will make you feel like at home.
