This B&B was good, very good for the price, however there were a few disappointments with our stay which stop me giving the requested 5 stars.
The room itself (double) was spacious, clean and had all the necessary mod cons, lovely en suite, big bed and very quiet.
This is an italian B&B so brits be warned, the unless you like a sugar and chocolate themed snack for breakfast take it as breakfast not included! The 'breakfast' on offer consisted of pre-packed croissants, cakes and some jams. I understand that this is the italian style so accept that this was all that was offered but this did result in us having to go out for breakfast each morning of our stay, which was a shame. Also no kettle... which is normally a given in kitchens.
The location is ok, it is on the south side of the colosseum and about 5 mins walk from the nearest metro, so again, for the price it was good and not far from the centre of town.
I was very disappointed after reading the numerous reviews on TA not to meet any of the hosts during our 4 day stay. It would have been very helpful during our stay to have some interaction with the owners (as they sound lovely!). For the four days on our trip we had no contact with any other people at the B&B at all (other than when we arrived a lady provided our keys to us), and it even lead us to assume that we were the only people staying there!
We took advantage of the 40EURO airport transfer which was worth the money, and dropped us at our door. Well worth getting this as the public transport can be pick pocket heaven and taxi's very expensive - i always feel like they have a tourist rate far higher than what they charge locals!
Overall I enjoyed my stay in Rome. We normally book B&Bs as they are more personal than hotels but unfortunately I think this time around we would have been better off booking a hotel, if only for the comfort of knowing that people are living in the same building!
If you just need a room then I would recommend this B&B, the quality of the room itself was high. However if you are used to cooked breakfasts and your host wishing you good morning each day then perhaps look elsewhere for a more personal service.
