| Time in Rome:
When in Rome live like the real Romans do.


The best of both worlds: comfortable as apartments and convenient as a hotel. With the added bonus of experiencing the real Rome away from tourists


At the City Guest House you’ll stay in spacious rooms that are elegant, practical and clean. Just like your own home. And we got rid of our reception to make space for a Wine Bar! 


We love our food and we love foodies, which is why 10 years ago we decided to open our own restaurant and recently a fine wine bar (Convivio Bistrot), which has become a big hit with the locals too.

We are a safe distance from the swarms of tourists and the traps that have been set for them.

We’re a ‘decentralised’ boutique hotel in Rome – located a snappy 15 minute metro ride away from Rome’s historic center.


Room with balcony

At 5 minutes from the hotel you find the magnificent park. Great for a job amongst ancient roman ruins.

Not only hotel rooms. We offer a fully furnished apartment with 6 bedrooms each with ensuite bathroom.
At the fifth floor our reception
Convivio Bistrot
This is where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch dinner, great cocktails, craft beer and great hospitality

We want our guests to live and breathe authenticity…. as we spoil them. So that they go back home with one more truly memorable experience.

— Giuliano Bettini, Owner

The hotel with hidden secrets... in a good way!
We chose Convivial House to stay in and we honestly couldn't have been more happier with choosing to stay with them.
Enfield, UK
An excellent option, away from the tourist traps.
The place does have more of a guest-house feel than a hotel feel and you can tell that the owners have put their heart into it.
Dundee, Scotland
Worth every penny
Convivial House is set more in the urban Rome. Not many foreigners round here either. The staff were brilliant, very helpful, recommending local bars and restaurants. They also spoke very good English!
