After a grueling trip from the airport with a train that was 90 minutes late - it started raining as we walked to the B&B. Just when I was at my whit's end because we had no Euros and the currency exchange places are all ripoffs... we had to go on foot to the room. Luckily, it's very close. You'll find it just up from the Restaurant Familigia - so if you're seeing that place, you're on the right block. The name is on the buzzer at an unmarked residential door. I buzzed, and the girl told us to come up.
The room was quaint, but nice. The girl who checked us in was super friendly. She took out a tourist map and told us all the major places to visit. She also told us how to catch the bus and metro.
The free Wifi password was tagged inside the drawer to the nightstand.
The bathroom is tiny. It's comically tiny. There's a bidet next to the sink which I felt should be swapped with the toilet. The toilet is jammed in the corner, making it tough to sit on for a tall person. The shower had very very little water pressure, but plenty of hot water.
As I was showering that day and complaining about the water pressure, I recalled the 90 minute late train and standing on the platform avoiding pickpockets. All was better... This shower was the highlight of my day at that point.
The location is cool for getting in and out of Termini. It's close to bus stops, so busing around town is easy. There's plenty of good restaurants in the area that are not tourist traps. Take a look around on here when you're looking for your dinner spot and find something close to the room.
AC works really well. Bed is comfy. Overall very good experience.
