Zen Garden B&B

 Guests Feedback


Just fancy to visit the sights of the Eternal City immersed in history or to enjoy the traditional Roman cuisine and to get back later on, that same day, to a restoring site…,a place nearly of its own!
In the middle of a quiet and inner garden among orange trees, palms and bamboos you’ll be accommodated in a bungalow independent of the rest of the house, comfortable, perfectly fitted with a combination air conditioning/heating unit and a small sink and counter area with a tea pot, coffee pot and equipped with a little private bathroom and shower

The position is central, between the historical districts of Trastevere with Porta Portese the famous Sunday flea market, and Testaccio, next to the river Tevere, ideal for a walk or a bike ride in the green to the heart of the historical centre.

Very close to Trastevere station, the place is directly connected to Fiumicino Leonardo da Vinci airport and to Termini station and is very well served by public transport in order to reach any place in the city

The owners ,a husband and a wife zen monks english and french speaking ,run in the main house a Centre for Zen Meditation and hold psychophysical wellbeing activities (Dance Therapy, Creative Dance, Iyengar Yoga, Tai chi-Qi Gong, Feldenkrais) which you can join. The entrance to the bungalow and the garden is through the main house.

‘Regular guests’ of the Centre a pair of friendly, lovable dogs, some peaceful cats that move about freely in the garden and goldfish swimming in the pond in front of the bungalow.

Public transports and connections

Two minutes walking from Trastevere Station and directly connected with Leonardo Da Vinci airport and Termini station, the Centre is well served by public transports that can reach every part of the city. On request, the use of the net will be available and any useful information or bookings at theatres or restaurants will be provided.

Natural and organic breakfast

You can enjoy breakfast with natural and organic food prepared with art, from cakes to bread to jams. with fruit, cheese and cold cuts. On request it is possible to have an Asian breakfast (steamed rice, eggs, miso soup).
The unique pleasure of listening to the song from little birds or the running of water among the stones of the tiny pond surrounded by bamboos, really awakens the peace in the morning and gives relaxation after a day spent as tourists



Lots of bars, cafès, pizzerias, restaurants and bakeries are located close to the Zen Garden. You can find also famous popular markets full of life like the characteristic New Market of Testaccio, “l’Altra Economia” with its Bio-supermarket and the Italian excellences of food and wine wiht a large offer of typical products of Eataly. Also available for you a list of authentic, family run, cheap ‘Trattorie’.
