Quod Libet

Bed & Breakfast

Stay 5 minutes from the Vatican in a tall palazzo above the British School. Young owners share local tips, deliver bakery-fresh breakfasts


4 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


Have breakfast in bed in this zany-bright B&B, high in a 19th-century palazzo near the Vatican. Gianluca and Consolata deliver a tray piled with eggs and fresh bread from the gorgeous-smelling bakery downstairs – and if you don’t fancy crumbs in the sheets, each big bright double room has space for a table and chairs. Shiny-new bedrooms are themed by season – spring rose-pink, summery yellow, frosty blue-grey – and overlook a wide plane tree-lined viale leading to the river. Families will choose the chocolatey red of Autunno, with its sofabed, bath and windows over a quiet inner courtyard. Canvas paintings are by Gianluca, owner, artist and computer whizz; he and Consolata will share a welcome drink and tips on the best local markets, restaurants, nightlife. Best of all, it’s a five-minute walk to Saint Peter’s and the Vatican Museums, perfect for early tours before the crowds. Ottaviano-San Pietro metro station is a block away and you’re a pleasant 30-minute stroll to most of Rome’s delights. A superb addition to Rome’s B&Bs: as fresh, bright and cheerful as its owners.

A wonderful place to stay in Rome, perfect location, beautiful accommodation and the friendliest hosts. Gianluca suggested a lovely walk in an area that we had not explored before, which made us feel we are getting to know Rome. We will definitely visit Quod Libet again. Thank you!

Sandi, Newcastle-on-clun

Fantastic B&B in a really great location. Really comfortable rooms and relaxed atmosphere. Breakfasts are everything you need before exploring the city and there is use of the kitchen 'out of hours' for a hot drink or to make a snack. The owners couldn't have been more helpful, with suggestions and maps and loads of tips as to how to get the most out of our 2 days in Rome. Thoroughly recommend

Jane, Andover

Beautiful spacious well maintained apartment with friendly staff.


Superb! Plentiful breakfast and access to refreshments, beautifully clean and comfortable rooms, accurate and up to date tourist advice from our hosts (museum tickets, transport arrangements, cafe and restaurants tips) - certainly made our short visit to Rome absolutely brilliant - thank you - Highly recommended!
