The Bed & Breakfast IL BOOM is located in a large apartment (where owners themeselves live) on the attic floor and penthouse of an early 20th-century building, without lift/elevator, offering a breathtaking view over Rome.
It was fully restored in keeping with the owners taste and passion for the 1950’s, 60s and 70s when Rome and Italy opened up to the world and culture. We tried to save what we could (vintage floors, ceilings, doors, full-length window), and maintain the roman atmosphere of our place.
One of the unique features of our il Boom 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.
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, archaeological, cultural sites of the city. Vatican City is just across 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.
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 and each is large and bright, with high plastered ceilings. 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. Please note: The B&B Il Boom doesn't have an official cancellation policy as such but it asks guests to inform as soon as possible in case it is not possible to come.
Il Boom is an initiative of Angelo, a charming guy in love with the cinema and the arts of the Italian golden years (1958- 1963) something that can be appreciated in every detail at his home. It’s a B&B that offers three rooms that are decorated in line with the cinema and the aesthetics of those years. In addition to a succulent and varied breakfast, this place also offers a quiet and magnificent garden/terrace on the Gianicolo Hill with great views, just 5 minutes walking from the bustling Trastevere.

The location of the B&B is fantastic, it´s in a local area with a beautiful view over Rome and everything is easy to reach by a 10 to 25 minutes walk. The accommodation is outstanding, very original furnished and decorated , our room had a view to the gardens of the neighbourhood and was quiet. You can have your breakfast whenever you like and the owner thought of everything, fresh fruit, eggs, joghurt, cheese, ham and very very delicious selfmade cookies and cakes. Angelo (the owner) is very kind, sympathetic and helpful. You have the feeling of a very warm welcome and we were really happy that we could make this experience. Hope that we ´ll get the chance to stay there again!!!
Il Boom B&B

This is a wonderfully stylish, fashionable, and relaxed place to stay in the desirable location of Trastevere with its excellent restaurants and bars. A roof terrace with stunning views across Rome is a perfect place to breakfast, accompanied by the owners pet tortoises! Perfect for those looking for something a bit different with more style than the normal hotel or B&B. Highly recommended.
Lovely B&B with great hos Angelo!

A lovely B&B - with great breakfast, nice room and an excellent view (overlooking Rome) from the terrace! The location is fabulous - in a quiet residential area but still only a few minutes away from bustling Piazza di Santa Maria in Trastevere! Walking distance to all major sights in central Rome! Many thanks to Angelo, for the warm welcome into his home/B&B. Highly recommended!!!

Ha sido un alojamiento perfecto.
Una decoración chulísima. La habitación bonita, muy limpia...y con aire acondicionado, detalle importante , teniendo en cuenta la temperatura que hacía en Roma en julio....y en la cocina , cualquier cosa que te pudiera apetecer para desayunar.
La localización es muy buena, se puede ir andando de cualquier lugar que quieras visitar, pero en una zona muy tranquila.
Angelo, que es un anfitrión encantador, nos explicó también la forma de ir a los sitios en transporte público (hay paradas de autobús y tranvía muy cerca), y era muy fácil desplazarse desde allí.

Wir haben den Aufenthalt in Angelo's Il Boom sehr genossen. Das Frühstück lässt eigentlich keine Wünsche offen; dass man sich sein Ei selbst zubereitet, kann ja nicht ernsthaft jemanden stören. Unser Zimmer (Sophia Loren) war sehr sauber und angenehm. Da das Wetter ausgesprochen schön war, konnte man sogar auf der Dachterrasse sein Frühstück einnehmen. Die Lage ist hervorragend, sieht man einmal vom normalen Geräuschpegel einer Großstadt ab. Über die Treppe ist man wirklich in ein paar Minuten mitten in Trastevere. Angelo ist ein in jeder Hinsicht aufmerksamer, freundlicher und zugewandter Gastgeber. Unbedingt seine Tipps für Lokale oder Laufwege ernst nehmen!

Il Boom is one of the best bed and breakfasts we've stayed at! Our favorite part was the impeccable Italian decor and our host, Angelo. He was so kind and told us about lots of things to do in the city and also sent us to a restaurant that was one of the best meals ever. Everything about this place is thought through to make a tourist happy; highly recommend! It's also in the BEST part of Rome!
Stylish and comfortable

Many many good things about this B&B: location, facilities, friendly and very helpful owner (Angelo), extremely stylish and interesting flat, and well appointed room (Magnani) and bathroom. Thank you very much for helping to make our honeymoon special, Angelo. Nice cats and tortoises too.
