The Beehive is an eco-conscious, stylish, boutique hotel/hostel in a great central location in Rome.
We stayed for two nights and this is what we thought:
You can't miss it!
Although the kitchen isn't fully equipped (no cooker or microwave), it was still a great asset. It had everything we needed to make tea and even sandwiches. One of the bad things about travel is not always having a place to prepare food, the Sweets at the Beehive has this and it really helped to make us feel at home.
They also have an iPad for Sweets guests to use! This was another thoughtful touch:
The wifi itself really was excellent, the upload speed was very impressive (important for us vloggers!)
We especially liked the small balcony, although it was December the weather was beautiful in Rome and it was a great place to hang out and have a cup of coffee.
In the en-suite bathroom there were organic, plant based soap and shampoos - further proof that they are eco-friendly.
The location of the Beehive is very central and was what initially attracted us (like bees to a beehive). The Beehive is just two blocks from Termini - the central station in Rome that's not just the hub for reaching the rest of Rome, but also the whole of Italy.
All guests at the Beehive have access to the garden and the lounge - two cute little spots perfect for hanging out and meeting fellow travellers.
The lounge also had an iPad for guests to use!
Although a stay at the Beehive does not include breakfast, you can still add on breakfast to your stay. Being an eco-conscious hotel & hostel, their menu is vegetarian with lots of vegan options too.
The Sweets are actually in a separate building to the Classic, the Hive and the reception.
The Classic was similar to our room, but with a shared bathroom:
The Beehive really does live up to its description: it was super eco-conscious with its vegetarian/vegan menu, organic wines and soaps; it was boutique; and it toed that sweet line between budget and comfort. Add to that a great central location in Rome and you can see why we're recommending this place to all our best bee friends!!
