History buffs will appreciate this small B&B, literally built on top of the ruins of the 1st-century Theater of Pompey, where Julius Caesar was stabbed to death. The lovely breakfast area beneath the lobby is actually part of the arcades of the old theater, with the original Roman stone walls. The large rooms themselves are not Roman in style, but feel plush, with exposed, wood-beam ceilings, cherry-wood furniture, and terracotta-tiled floors. Some rooms feature a view of the internal courtyard while others overlook the small square; all are quiet. The Campo de’ Fiori is right behind the hotel. Staff members are extremely helpful and all speak good English. Please avoid the “Trattoria Der Pallaro” restaurant next door; it’s a verified tourist trap.
