Navona: Navona Gallery Suites

via del Governo Vecchio 73

Reviewed by: Anastasia from Canada, review #1527

When: June 2006

Very nice B&B 100m from Piazza Navona.

We stayed at the smaller of the 2 suites Borromini (2 adults and a baby), but had a chance to see the biggest suite. The suite is the size of a hotel room with a bathroom equipped with a shower. The shower is good size.

The two suites are located on the first floor (1 flight of steps) in an ancient building 100m off Piazza Navona. The suites are part of an apartment building and are very quiet, as the windows and the small balcony are facing the small internal garden.

The Borromini suite has access to the very small balcony with flowers, where we ate our breakfast. The suite is equipped with a TV and individually adjustable AC.

There is a kitchen shared by the 2 suites with a table when we could also eat and cook some of the meals. The kitchen is very small, but well equipped and the refrigerator is full of food for the breakfast.

The suites are very clean and have daily cleaning. Baby cot or child bed is provided on request. The Borromini suite was just big enough for 3 of us for a few days. If you stay longer and/or have many bags, then consider staying in the bigger suite.

Giampierro and his family are working in the same building and are very kind people. Their welcome was very warm and Giampierro even bought food and drinks for the baby; we were very touched by this. His brother-in-law (who is originally from the US) gave us some delicious pastries in the morning.

We had a great stay there and would return any time.

The suites are perfectly located for visiting Rome on foot. They are very close to Campo dei Fiori and the market and close to supermarkets, stores, pharmacies, banks, a post office, numerous restaurants and deli shops.
