"..while they book you a table for dinner you can sit in the lobby and wonder how something so good can cost so little."
"So far the owners, an American couple who chucked the prefab life of L.A., are apparently keeping their guests happy. ... a slew of additions only ramped up the cool factor here."
"The Beehive is the place for the discerning budget traveller. You must book ahead as walk-ins are not accepted and party animals are positively discouraged."
"Steve and Linda have poured a ton of taste and creativity into making their budget inn a cool place."
"falls squarely in the realm of the odd but wonderful and price is perfect. the american owners say they conceived of this lodging-cum-art show as a 'kooky dream' and they've achieved it. Rooms are decorated with art pieces and flea-market treasures and are available for a variety of budgets."
"The Beehive gives vagabonds - old and young - a cheap, clean, and comfy home in Rome. Its artsy-mod double rooms are a great value."
"En ny generasjon ungdomsherberge med kjølig designinnredning og en kul, listen bakhage. Alt fra sovesal til dobbeltrom tilbys. Økonomisk!"
"Its 'youth hostel meets boutique hotel' vibe is the result of a coming together of very reasonable prices and basic amenities with design-icon furniture, bright decor, a cute garden and hotel services that include a free in-house guidebook, free internet access and a lounge café for hotel guests."
"Owned by a couple from Southern California, The Beehive's seven rooms, dormitory and three apartments are SoCal hip, with their light hues, modern furniture and surf prints. The place stays busy, so it's best to book well in advance."
"Run by expat Californians, this budget hotel is a modernist gem: clean, airy and cute. Touches like WiFi, yoga lessons and an onsite CAFE."
"best suited to cat lovers, run by a feline-loving American couple. A wonderfully friendly budget haven."

"Per chi viaggia con un budget più ridotto, invece, e in particolar modo per i giovani (ma non solo), tra le tantissime strutture ne consigliamo tre. The Beehive - gestito da una coppia di americani, curato e colorato, a pochi passi da Termini."
"Looking for a centrally located, small hotel in Rome that won't cost a fortune? Check into the Beehive, a seven-room hotel, run by an American couple, with lemon and fig trees in the garden, two blocks from Rome's central Termini station."
"50 Totally Charming Hotels for Under $150: Rome's Beehive hotel has spacious rooms with beaded lamps and surfing-inspired prints on the walls. The hotel is nonsmoking, and the restaurant is vegetarian and organic."
"È gestito da Steve e Linda che, lasciata Los Angeles, hanno aperto questo spazio dove trattano i loro ospiti come in casa propria: olio biologico, carta riciclata, internet gratis, buonissime zuppe, per di più a due passi dalla stazione Termini."
"Having a meal in their unassuming café is more like hanging out in a friend's kitchen. There are no fixed portion sizes or fixed prices: eat what you're hungry for, pay what you think is fair, and pass around some good karma."
"Une adresse chic, écolo et pas chère au coeur de Rome? C'est le pari réussi d'un couple de jeunes Californiens qui a métamorphosé le rez-de-jardin d'un bel immeuble du quartier de la gare Termini en un petit hôtel moderne et chaleureux babtisé The Beehive (la ruche, en anglais)."
"After staying in a fabulous place in Florence, we thought it couldn't get any better, but the Beehive is extraordinary. A beautiful, warm, clean, friendly hostel with free internet and the most incredible CAFE downstairs. The term "hostel" doesn't do it justice. It's home, in Rome."
"The area around Termini is the heart of the budget hotel scene in Rome, and there's one property here that stands above the rest - The Beehive. Set in a quiet street, behind a high wall, it's the nicest hostel-cum-hotel in town. Run by an American couple who have settled in the city, it's a hip, ethical place with vegetable-based paint on the walls, a tiny vegetarian restaurant in the basement and rows of Philippe Starck chairs in reception."
"Absolutely nowhere else in Rome will the staff refuse to give you a bill at the end of the meal. The driving idea behind this tiny café is that you eat what you're hungry for, pay what you think is fair, and pass around some good karma. Enjoy the camaraderie of the open kitchen environment that feels more like a friend's house than a restaurant."
"A Roma, Steve e Linda, una coppia di Los Angeles, hanno creato il Beehive Hotel & Café: solo cucina biologica. Ma la vera novità è che è il cliente che decide il valore di ciò che mangia. Il ristorante si trova in un albergo ecologico di design a prezzi sostenibili e ha la connessione wi-fi gratuita."
"I sogni a cassetto a volte diventano realtà. Per Steve e Linda, coppia di americani titolari di questo piccolo 'gioiello' romano, l'apertura (nel 1999) di una struttura ricettiva comoda, accessibile e sostenibile è stata proprio la realizzazione di un sogno, per inseguire il quale hanno lasciato la loro città, Los Angeles, per trasferirsi a Roma"
"There are six double rooms and a dorm, all spacious with huge windows, lots of wardrobe space and a homey feel. Five bathrooms are shared between seven rooms but these are kept sparkingly clean. The café downstairs has delicious vegetarian food and priced according to the cucina karmica principle - where you decide what to pay."
"The movie Roman Holiday always inspires a romantic reverie of the city. The Beehive, a hotel located in one nook in Rome, shares the same authentic natural beauty of Audrey Hepburn's that makes you want to build a spontaneous intimacy with her. From the meals cooked with fresh organic ingredients to their hospitality, the owners' dedication to providing all guests a warm environment is showed in all details of the hotel. For those who are seeking for a homey feel, The Beehive certainly is the place to stay.
"Close to the now glammed-up, all-glass Termini station, this decade-old hybrid hostel-hotel has one major minus: no en-suite bathrooms. Now that's out of the way, here are all the pluses: it's a self-proclaimed eco-vegetarian place (think recycled toilet paper, meat-free café) with free WiFi and no AC (old palazzo walls are cooling enough) and the onsite garden is an urban oasis. Expat Angeleno owners Steve and Linda are encyclopedic and welcoming while their eight rooms include one that is dorm-style and can berth eight - great for groups."
"Has plenty of style and is bang in the centre of Rome. Two minutes from the main train station, it's run with wholesome flair by two young Americans, Linda and Steve Brenner. Choose from one of the six double rooms, each with cool tiled floors, ceiling fans, white duvets, Italian designer or Balinese furnishings and nice touches such as handmade vegetable soaps and works by local craftsmen. Bathrooms are shared but somehow feel private. There's even an organic vegetarian café in the basement and a small decked garden."
"Ce petit hôtel est géré par un jeune couple américain passionné de design, d'art et d'écologie. Au programme, un conteneur pour le compost, du papier toilette recyclé, de l'huille d'olive biologique... Mais pas de télé ! Au The Beehive, vous pourrez vous détendre dans la tranquillité d'un petit jardin ou bien prendre un verre ou manger dans le café associé totalement végétarien et bio, of course !"
"Seit 1999 führen die Amerikaner Steve und Linda ihr hübsches Budgethotel in Rom, gleich beim Bahnhof. Das Gästehaus ist mit vielen Fotos ihrer Kinder dekoriert, und die beiden verwenden wo immer es geht Biomaterialien: von der Seife bis zum Olivenöl, das es im Café gibt. Dafür verzichteten sie auf Fernsehen und Klimaanlage - molto simpatico!"
"Cheap double rooms, all with shared bathroom, is this pleasant budget hotel near Termini run by an American couple."
"This trendy budget hotel/hostel by Termini station is an incredibly cheap option. Established by a couple from Los Angeles who wanted to offer an 'alternative' escape from the chaotic capital. With a lovely garden, welcoming lounge and a vegetarian caffé, guests have plenty of places to rest their tired feet."
"Déjà propriétaires de The Beehive, charmante auberge cosy et lumineuse, idéale pour familles nombreuses, (très joli jardin, café, chambres triples, dortoirs agréables), Linda et Steve ont monté Cross-Pollinate, un système de réservation online rapide et efficace, avec, en sus, l'assurance que des gens en chair et en os veillent à la qualité des réservations, des prestations et de l'accueil."
"The owners' kids' pictures are on the walls, Ingmar the cat stalks the halls, yet there's Philippe Starck furniture on the patio and a vegetarian café downstairs. Just a hop from Termini station, The Beehive offers contemporary style wihtout breaking the bank."
"If there's such a thing as an "organic hotel", the Beehive could be considered one. Here you'll find a yoga room, vegetarian food, an art gallery and a splendid internal garden. It's also smack in the centre of chaotic Rome!"
"This chic hotel, located two blocks from Rome's Termini Station, offers a sunny, art-filled relief from average, drab budget hotels. Inside, you'll find sleek, modern Kartell and Magis design furniture, lively splashes of color and an array of cozy public areas, from a yoga room to an organic, vegetarian café that features seasonal, locally grown meals. For breakfast, try the cafés's thick slices of bread slathered with ricotta and drizzed with honey."
"Run by an American couple and a cat, The Beehive is an organic hotel for all those whose list of priorities is topped by a healthy lifestyle at any cost. Such patrons are in for a myriad of attractions, among them a truly vegetarian restaurant."
"Steve and Linda sind Amerikaner und eröffneten in Rom das Beehive Hotel 1999. Nur zwei Blocks vom Hauptbahnhof, der Stazione Termini, entfernt, in einem ruhigen, sauberen Viertel befindet sich das kleine Guesthouse in einem großen Apartmentblock. Die Rezeption und sieben Zimmer sowie ein Bio-Café mit hausgemachten Backwaren, in dem gutes Frühstück und Sonntags-Brunch serviert wird, eine Lounge mit Lesematerial und ein hübsch begrünter Innenhof mit Sitzgelegenheiten, befindet sich im Erdgeschoss des Baus. Weitere, nagelneu hergerichtete fünf Zimmer stehen im selben Haus, Eingang um die Ecke, zur Verfügung, diese großteils mit eigenen Badezimmern und Balkon sowie Aufenthaltsraum mit Kühlschrank. Außerdem werden, ebenfalls in Bahnhofsnähe, in zwei alten Palazzi zwei Apartments vermietet, in denen zehn zusätzliche Zimmer zur Verfügung stehen."
"Next to Rome's Termini station, this eco-conscious hostel-cum-hotel is an oasis of calm in a hectic city. In the gorgeous garden, sitting among grape vines, lemon and fig trees, guests can enjoy al-fresco breakfast or all-day snacks and drinks. The interiors are clean and modern yet welcoming, with the American owner's photography hanging on the walls."
