We arrived later than expected due to flight delay, but the host, Mrs. Caravella, has waited for us even after check-in time limit - we really appreciated this.
The room has no carpet on the floor and you tend to walk between bedroom and bathroom without changing to slippers - the filth has been carried from one room to another. Also, no carpet in front of the shower - we used a towel. Sheets and towels are being changed at every 3 days. The shower cabin was tooo small, not suitable for claustrophobs! Also, hot water comes very late - tip: turn the shower at maximum heat + flowing speed so that it can come quicker. Room was noisy (we chose the one with the private bathroom), as it was close to Viale de Trastevere and the traffic is intense. Moreover, the walls are extremely thin and we overheard the upstair's neighbour phone conversations but also her cancerous coughing in the night - very creepy!!
The breakfast was ok, consisting of bread, jam, croissant and coffee. We are used to eat more on breakfast, so we bought some extra food from Spar, which is located in the Trastevere train station, and stored it in the fridge. You have the possibility to eat at noon or dinner, as you can prepare some sandwiches in the open kitchen. Unfortunately, we didn't have the necessary accesories to heat prepared food, this is why you couls only eat sandwiches.
Credit card payment: no
Hair dryer: there are 3-4 hair dryers stored in the kirchen's counter
Transportation: tram 8 drives you to the center; no metro nearby!
Host: ok, except when she has all rooms booked; she asked my boyfriend to free the table - although he still had some tea left to drink - so that others can come and eat. Rude, but maybe she didn't want it to sound so, as she speaks only Italian, a bit of French and bad English.
She has repaired this mistake by letting us keep the luggage in the room until our flight time. Check-out time was at 10:00 am and our flight was at 7:00 pm. She left us the keys (as it was Sunday and she was free) and asked to put them on the table when at our return.
Overall: nice hotel, but it could've been better. I would recommend it just for its proximity to Trastevere and Piazza Venezia.
