We booked B&B Augusteo for one night, our stopover between Rome and the Amalfi Coast. It turned out to be a great find. It's tucked away on one of the main streets of the Spanish Quarter, 2 streets "up" from Via Toledo. Our room was large, bright, comfortable and spotlessly clean, as was the bathroom which was just across the common room from our room. There is a computer to use in the common room if you wish, but the WiFi works just fine. Breakfast is taken in your room. You give Lorredana your hot drink order when you arrive and she brings it to you at the agreed time in the morning. Lorredana and Ciro were wonderful hosts -- actually they went above and beyond for us. We has a rental car which we managed to park, legally, a few blocks from the b&b. It would have been no good for overnight, but we could not have driven to the b&b ourselves, even if there had been parking there, which there wasn't. Ciro came with us to our car, drove us back to an excellent, secure parking garage which was close to the b&b (5 minute walk, first block of Via Shelly), and made sure we were properly settled -- €20 for small car overnight. Ciro also gave us a great dinner recommendation, Capri, just a few doors from the b&b .... His friend or cousin, not sure which, but it turned out to be fabulous, one of our best meals of the trip. The only caution I would give is about the area -- it has a great atmosphere, lots of colour, activity, people, bit it is also very noisy. There is a constant stream of scooters in the streets, which are more like lane ways, as well as vehicles trying to get through. The street noise goes on quite late so it was a bit difficult for sleeping. If I'd thought of earplugs it would have been fine. I'd recommend staying there, properly prepared, and I would stay there again.
