WELCOME TO ROME
We thank you for choosing LHG Comfy Rooms, and we wish you the most pleasant stay in Rome.
In order to make your time with us as comfortable as possible, we are glad to provide you with a few useful tips and info:
Check-in time is 12:30 – 20:00. Should you arrive later than 20:00, a self check-in can be easily arranged at no extra cost, by prior agreement with our staff, thanks to the presence of a digital coded system that will allow you to enter our premises afterhours on your own. Guests who will self check in will receive all the necessary info via text on the day of, and will be asked to send an ID before arrival.
Reception is located in CORSO D'ITALIA 92 (buzzer reads LHG New Moon Guesthouse), on the first floor of the "scala A".
Should you arrive in the morning, you are welcome to drop off your luggage at the reception as early as 9:00, so you can go explore the city hands-free.
Check-out time is 10:30. Room keys may be left on the desk inside the room or at the reception upon departure. We are glad to store your luggage until 20:00 on the day of your departure.
Reception and concierge service hours is 14:30 – 20:00, also available via Whatsapp on our phone number +39 340 4197398 (reachable 24/7 in case of emergency).
The city tax (3,50€ per night/per person) is to be payed upon arrival. The only platform currently allowing guests to pay for the city tax along with the room fee, while making the reservation online, is Airbnb. All reservations made through platforms that are not Airbnb are subject to the payment of the city tax during check-in on site (preferably, though not exclusively, in cash). The tax only applies for a maximum period of 10 days. Children under the age of 10 and guests residing in Rome are exempt from the payment.
Upon check-in, if previously included in your reservation, you will be given “breakfast vouchers”. The vouchers are to be used at a nearby café, where you will be served an Italian breakfast, from 07:00 to 11:00. The café is called Don Nino, and is located in Piazza Fiume 77.
Each room is equipped with what follows: a little fridge under the desk, a safety box, a kettle, a welcome courtesy kit, heating and A/C, a blowdryer, sheets and towels, soap, a TV, and WiFi connection.
QUO VADIS INN – Via Bergamo 43
THE GUESTHOUSE – Corso d’Italia 92, Staircase A, Fourth Floor
NEW MOON GUESTHOUSE – Corso d'Italia 92, Staricase A, first floor
We kindly ask you to be respectful of other guests as well as the residents of the building by being quite at night and in the early morning, and by keeping the TV volume at an acceptable level.
If using the elevator, please make sure to close the inner doors as well as the outside ones, or the elevator won't result available to be called from other floors.
Please keep in mind all our rooms and surrounding premises, including the courtyard, are non-smoking.
When checking in, you will also be given a Local Map. We will give you all the useful info concerning transportation and places to visit.
The bus number 62 will be the most convenient during your stay at the Inn, as it drives right through the city center, reaching Castel Sant’Angelo, a 5 minute walk from Vatican City. Bus tickets may be purchased at newspaper kiosks or Tobacco shops (both closed on Sundays), directly inside train and underground stations (Termini, Lepanto, Tiburtina, Piramide), at automated machines at the bus stop at Porta Pia, or via phone on either one of these apps: "My Cicero" and "TicketAppy".
The closest underground station from the Inn is “Castro Pretorio”, only 700 meters away. We personally recommend touring by foot, weather permitting, as our location is strategic: you can reach the Roma Termini Central Station in 15 minutes, Villa Borghese and Via Veneto in 10 minutes, Piazza del popolo in approximately 20 minutes, Via del Corso and Fontana di Trevi in about a half hour.
RESTAURANTS IN THE AREA
- IL DISCO VOLANTE, Via Alessandria 50. Pizzeria & Trattoria, an informal/simple dining, very good value for money. You may either choose to go the low-budget option with pizza, or try the “trattoria” food, featuring a number of local recipes. Run by three brothers - Mimmo, Mauro and Ignazio. Average cost: 20-30€ per person.
- PIZZERIA BELLA NAPOLI, Via Alessandria 13. Neapolitan Pizza with also a good selection of pasta. It is a location characterised by a fun, low-key atmosphere. Run by Gianni. Average cost: 18-25€ per person.

Rome is an overall safe city, and so is the neighborhood we're located in – it being a rich residential area. Yet, as in every city (especially if visited as tourists) it might come in handy to take some precautions for a carefree experience. We advise avoiding carrying along passports, too much cash or several credit cards, and make sure to hold your wallet in a spot only reachable by you. This will protect you from the occasional pickpocketer, usually found in crowded areas or buses/underground.
We cannot stress enough how useful the safety deposit box in your room can be for storing anything valuable. The Inn is not to be held responsible for missing items.
HOW TO REACH US FROM THE AIRPORT
- TAXI: this is the fastest alternative. Make sure you only ride on WHITE TAXIS (the official cab service in Rome), and always check with the driver what the approximate fare would be for a specific destination. Also, make sure the meter on the cab is switched on when you start the ride (it starts at 3-5€), and let the driver know you are aware of your right as a costumer to pay by card (they are required by law to accept cards). The official taxi fare to/from Fiumicino Airport is 48€; the one to/from Ciampino Airport is 31€. These can vary slightly depending on pieces of luggage, time of day or day of the week.
- AIRPORT TRANSFER
Fiumicino Airport is connected to Roma Termini Central Station by the "Leonardo Express", a train with rides every 15 minutes at the cost of 14€ per person. Ciampino Airport is also connected by a regional train to Termini (the cost varies between 2-4€). It takes around 15 minutes.
Last option is the BUS, also the least expensive alternative. You can book tickets on the following website: www.terravision.eu.
Once you get to Roma Termini Central station, the bus number 38 will take you to Piazza Fiume in four stops.
We recommend buying tickets in advance for every attraction you may want to visit, so as to avoid queueing. Bear in mind you will be asked to show your physical ID (identity card or passport) to access the Vatican. You may purchase tickets online for the Coliseum, the Roman Forums as well as the Galleria Borghese – a famous museum within the park of Villa Borghese, a 10 minute walk from our place.
