Excellent value for money, great service
This B & B is located on a bit more upscale area in the northwestern part of central Rome near the Vatican. Nearby streets are relatively quiet and feel safe. The OM2 is on the second floor of an 1980'ish office building so you might miss it walking by. Inside the place is cosy and small, they have 8 rooms in total. The rooms themselves are modern, spacious and kept in good condition (only the electric kettle was a bit icky with weeks old water inside), bathroom included. We spent 6 nights with no problems. Central heating was a nice thing during rainy and cold days, kept the dampness outside. Some more noise insulation could be added to the windows and walls/doors; luckily our neighbouring guest were quiet people. Though I think in Italy bad noise insulation is a default setting. Included breakfast was quite ok for a short stay. One thing I noticed though: Lack of proper fire safety. I did not see any smoke/fire detectors in the whole building, the B&B premises or the rooms. They did have a couple of powder extinguishers, but they don't help much if you're already passed out due to smoke. Also the other one of the exits to the corridor was blocked. Apart from that everything felt ok even without 24/7 service. The service at OM2 needs extra praise: The personnel we interacted with were very friendly, proactively helpful, professional and spoke excellent English. We felt welcome, which is sometimes rare even in a four-star hotel. Thank you guys and take care.
