IL BOOM B&B

The Bed & Breakfast IL BOOM is in a large apartment (where owners’ family lives) located on the attic floor and penthouse of an early 20th-century building, without lift/elevator, offering a breathtaking view over Rome.
Up to 2005 this apartment has been just our home. We restored it with our taste and passion for the three decades (fifthies, sixthies, seventhies) when Rome and Italy made progress and opened up to the world and culture.
We tried to save what we could (vintage floors, ceilings, doors, full-lenght window), and mantain the roman atmosphere of our place.
One of the unique feature of our apartment are the two splendid terraces, equipped with deck-chairs and umbrellas, where guests can sunbathe and enjoy the romantic atmosphere of the Eternal City.
On-site amenities furthermore include a comfortable lounge/kitchen, a PC with internet access, and wireless Internet access throughout the apartment.

The Bed and Breakfast IL BOOM enjoys an excellent position in the heart of Rome, on the legendary Gianicolo Hill, along a beautiful tree-lined avenue in the charming Trastevere district, one of the city's most ancient and picturesque neighbourhoods.
We are located in a quiet and secluded residential area, at a few minutes walking from the most important artistic, archeological, cultural sites of the city.
Vatican City is just accross Gianicolo Hill (half an hour walking through Fontanone - a monumental fountain - and Piazza Garibaldi - the most beautiful view of the city. Campo de Fiori, Piazza Farnese, Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Tiber Island, Campidoglio, all the historical center is just under our place.
Restaurants, pizzerie, bars, pubs, any kind of shops are at five minutes walking
And we have also very efficient and close public transportation (daily and nightly): Bus 44, 75, 870, H; tram 8

The Bed and Breakfast Il Boom offers 3 spacious double guest rooms (Loren, Magnani and Vitti), each featuring an elegant private bathroom and ample wardrobes.
Individually decorated in an attractive 50's, 60's and 70's style, the rooms are named after three famous Italian movie stars of that period: Anna Magnani, Sophia Loren and Monica Vitti.
Each room is large and very lighty, with high plastered ceiling.
Room Loren is the quietest one because it gives onto Villa Sciarra (a small public park) and nearby gardens. It features a small private en-suite bathroom with shower, and a flat screen TV.
Room Magnani has a window with a wonderful view over Rome. It features an external (just in front of the room itself) very large private bathroom with large jacuzzi bathtub and shower. It has a flat screen TV. A single bed can be added.
Room Vitti has a balcony and a window with a wonderful view over Rome. It features an external (just outside the room itself) private black & white bathroom with shower. It has a flt screen TV, and a double sofa bed.
All accommodations are strictly non-smoking and equipped with indipendent air conditioning, centralized heating, hair dryer, and wireless Internet connection.

A delicious self-service continental breakfast, with home-made cakes and biscuits, toasts, jam, yogurth, fruit juice, milk, tea and coffee, is at guests' disposal in the kitchen.
Breakfast can be enjoyed in the dining area or on the outdoor terrace, whenever you prefer, at any time until 1 p.m.

Guest Name :Jana Philips Date Stayed :2011, July 28th/30th

Dear mr. Angius, We are back home again and we had a nice flight to Holland. We enjoyed our stay in Rome and in your B&B and we'll sure recommend our family and/or friends who might visit Rome one of these days to book a room at your place. We have made many walks in the centre of Rome and we have met only kind roman people. Although we normally spend our holidays in our house in France, we will certainly come back to Rome one day and who knows, we'll met again each other. greetings, Herman/Marian. Dear mr.

Dear Angelo We really enjoyed our stay at your place in Rome. The whole idea with your B&B is great; we felt like we were staying in a hotel but at the same time in somebody's home. Breakfast was great with the large number of choices. I will go into tripadvisor and recommend il boom asap.
Guest Name :Sophie Johansson Date Stayed :2011, July 22nd/24th

Angelo, I was also sorry that I didn't get to say goodbye and thank you personally for my wonderful stay. I'm definitely going to recomend Il Boom to others, and hope to stay there in the future.

Hi Angelo, It's nice to hear from you! We had a great time in Rome and it was a lovely city to end our honeymoon! We loved the B&B and how personal the place was to your individual taste - you have a beautiful home! I will post a review on Tripadvisor...it is where we found you in the first place!
Guest Name :Danielle and Richard Sayed Date Stayed :2011, October 2nd/4th

Dear Angelo I have just finished my opinion of your B&B in tripadviser. As you know we were very pleased with our stay at your flat and we hope we can return some day.
Guest Name :Anne & Jan Anvorth Date Stayed :2011, September 17th/22nd

Dear Angelo, I was just about to write an email to you. Our trip in Roma was just perfect. Thanks to Il boom. Your place is great ! My only regret is that we couldn't stay any longer... two nights is a bit short. I've already given your address to friends and will put thousands stars on trip advisory. Considering your advise request, I tryed to think about something you could improve... it might be that the bath of the Magnagni room fills up a bit slowly. Thanks again for being so kind to your guest, You will see us again at Il boom, for sure Cheers
Guest Name :Marie Eve & Emmanuel Date Stayed :2011, October 14th/16th

Angelo, Thank you for your hospitality and help during our stay in Rome. My wife and I had a wonderful time and enjoyed staying at your bed and breakfast. We will definitely recommend your place to any friends who may travel to Roma in the future. I will post a review on Trip Advisor as well.
