When planning our Euopean vacation my husband and I decided we didn't need to stay in 4 to 5 star hotels and resorts. What's the point, you are going to Europe to learn and enjoy the history and character of the "way of life."
I found the B&B online through a general search, but before "booking" I looked up on Tip Advisor. The B&B received decent reviews, and for what we wanted the cost was reasonable.
It is located withing a 5 to 10 min walk to Vatican City, and right around the corner to the bus stop. If you choose not to take the bus or walk, you just walk out to street or down the street to find a taxi. When in Rome, we didn't have any issues with the location in relation to anyof the sites. The room we stayed in was the perfect size for 2 people stay a couple of nights to enjoy the beautiful city. We had doors leading to the balcony with an amazing view of Vatican City. Every morning there was a small breakfast left outside the door. Neither my husband nor I are huge breakfast people, so milk, juice, cerel and fruit was fine for us. The room was clean, the shower and toilet worked fine.
My personal opinion when traveling is as long as your room is clean, quiet and close to sites I'm happy. Make sure to visit all the historical sites, eat lots, drink the house wine and walk around.
If I go back to Rome I would most likely stay here again.
