A friend and I stumbled across this bed-and-breakfast 2 years ago while needing a place to stay one night in Rome while there to see the Pope. It is a couple blocks from the Vatican and off one of the side streets where sidewalk cafes line the street during the day. The cafes close early so there is little concern for loud noises in the evening. I consider it a very nice area in Rome to stay and safe for tourists. My husband and I came back in May so we could have an audience with the Pope and we were so looking forward to staying here. The rooms are wonderfully, romantically decorated and the windows open out onto the street below. There is a spacious lobby area with comfortable antique c...Read More

Ca'Furlan is an amazing bed and breakfast within walking distance (2 to 5 minutes) from Piazza San Marco. The hotel was built on top of a 15th century old horse stable. It is on a small private dead end street just past the church of S. Giovanni Battista. We splurged for the canal view room at 149 euro a night which was well worth it and included taxes.

If you happen to be in Rome and are Catholic, this is a definite stop but I would recommend to anyone. Nuns serve French food off a set menu or a la carte. I recommend the a la carte, especially the spinach crepe au gratin (superb). They open for dinner at 7pm but make sure you stay when the nuns come out and all sing Ave Maria at 9:30pm. They are also open for lunch but the evening is recommended. Often you will be dining with cardinals, bishops, priests and other nuns. It is a little hard to find but located behind the Panthenon. We were lucky that someone told us about this gem and we would recommend it to anyone there.
