We had a wonderful time at this hotel, it is not a B&B.
The hotel is located on the second floor of a complex, and occupies one corridor, about 8 or 9 rooms total. There is a small lobby/reception desk at the end of the hall. Daniele, the owner, is on site half of the day, however can be reached by mobile very easily at any time and will coordinate when you check in, just give him 20min notice and he'll be there to meet you. He will also help you locate a parking space, its all metered parking in the area (but very reasonable, we paid 4 euros for 24hrs).
Everything is new, the hotel just opened early July 2010. Some of the closets and things have a bit of fresh paint smell, I imagine its already gone by now. The rooms are pretty large, furnishings are very modern and clean. Nice large flat screen TV with plenty of channels, comfy (a bit harder) beds, rainfall shower head (bathrooms are a bit smaller). We recieved one of the largest rooms with a couch that could fold into another bed. Also there is a small fridge and electric water kettle/boiler. The A/C worked perfectly and the windows are multi-paned, even though we were on the street we didnt hear any noise (and I am a fairly light sleeper). You can however here your neighbors in the hallway through your door, the walls seem pretty insulated though. Oh, there is also free wifi from the hotel with reasonable speeds (probably mid-to-slow DSL).
The hotel is located about 10mins walk to the Vatican and is in a nice neighborhood, very clean and safe. There is a great (though a bit pricey) restaurant directly in front of the hotel. And breakfast is served at a small cafe just down the street, included with the price of lodging. Its a nice meal with fresh orange juice, coffees, and an assortment of breads, jam, and butter.
Daniele also owns A View from Rome which is more B&B like and has high ratings on TA. He is very helpful and will arrange tickets, book restaurants, and hire taxis for you as needed. After we checked out, we were able to leave our baggage in storage, it was a bit odd since it was just placed in a cleaning closet and we were given the keys to the closet, but it was nice that he trusted us - hopefully no one bad abuses this system! The keys themselves are a bit bulky, you have to carry three keys, the building, the hotel door, and your room key.
We really enjoyed our stay, it was easy to get to from the airport, the accommodations were very nice and we felt that it was a bargain price for what we got. You won't get much staff support per se, but for the more experienced traveler its fine. I would stay here again when/if I return to Rome.
