Il Boom B&B was born in the spring of 2006.
Until then, it was simply our home, which we had purchased in the 1990s, and where my children, Matteo and Niccolò, our dog Luna and I had moved into in 1998, after a year-long refurbishment. At the time I, Angelo, was an executive within a big multinational corporation. When I saw the apartment, which was to become our home, I had no doubts and I immediately purchased it, even though it needed quite some work.
It was a charming flat! Big, bright, in Trastevere, in a historic building, with great terraces overlooking my city, it already had its own character, its own atmosphere.
One day, however, my professional situation, like that of many others, especially in Italy, changed, and my sons and I decided to turn part of our all-too-large (for the three of us) apartment into a Bed and Breakfast.
It was the right decision to make!
It made it possible for us not to sell our beloved house (it would have caused us considerable pain), and allowed me to start the enjoyable and rewarding new job; I became a host, welcoming many people from all over the world, helping them enjoy Rome and the Romans. I’ve never had this much professional satisfaction in my previous job as a manager.
Over the years we have unfortunately experienced a number of losses. Luna, our beloved boxer, died, and Poldo (another beautiful and beloved boxer) also left us. Now we have three cats (Ciccio, Felice and Sancho), who are not allowed access to the sleeping area of B&B; we also have five turtles living on one of our terraces. Dorota, who has been with us since 1998, looks after the daily cleaning of the rooms and of the B&B, as well as the changing of the linen and towels.
Matteo and Niccolò grew up and now live on their own, however, reading this story you probably understand how strong and deep our connection to this house is; it's a great pleasure and satisfaction for us to share it with the many people who come to enjoy their stay, however short it may be.
It's rewarding to see that many people choose to visit us again and encourage their friends and relatives to also choose Il Boom B&B.
We look forward to welcoming you!
