This is the first time I've even thought about writing a review, but this place was so good I just felt compelled to do so!
I usually look at the latest reviews when using this site as I feel that they reflect the fairest view. The post below mine says "At home in Rome" and you really are!
Location: Right near the station, less than a couple minutes walk away and I've stayed in this neighbourhood a couple of times in Rome and never seen anything remotely dodgy, so don't worry! The main attractions aren't far to walk to, me and my girlfriend don't walk at all and we found it doable to walk from the B&B to the Vatican one day! (Albeit that was a little tiring).
Value: Absolute bargain for what you get!
Cleanliness: Spotless, the bathroom was so clean you wouldn't have been opposed to sleeping in there!
Rooms: Our room was so cosy and comfortable. The bed was a real double bed, not two single beds pushed together and then a double sheet, an actual double mattress and it was sooo nice to come back to after a long day of sight-seeing!
Nice little mini-fridge which we used to keep our sandwich making stuff in. Little lamps above both sides of the bed, a nice view out the window of a very green square! Even room to do a few exercises on the floor. I don't know whether we had quiet neighbours but we didn't hear anything other than a sneeze through the wall!
Service: met the guy the first day, saw him a couple times after throughout the 3 nights there. Very friendly, not great with his English on the phone, but is perfectly nice when you meet him in person! Gives you the keys, takes your details, it is cash on arrival, but that didn't bother us.
Breakfast is fine, quite basic but you have everything you need, we were so happy with the room and everything else that the breakfast didn't really matter. You can have a couple croissants and a coffee, or some cereal.
Overall we stayed for 3 nights, had a lovely time and would definitely stay again! I urge you to do the same! Basically, if you like your sleep and a nice place to chill and don't want to be afraid of coming back to your room early, whether it is during the day for a nap (like us), or after an early meal nearby, then don't hesitate booking here! Hope this has been helpful, contact me if you want to know anymore!
P.S (As for restaurants we went to "Est Est Est" one night, very old pizzeria and would seriously recommend for low prices and great food!)
My one very small criticism is that it can get quite loud outside in the evening, but it is bearable and the noise didn't continue after 23:30 and it was brief!
