Traveled with my wife in December 2012. We had no previous experience with B&B so cannot compare it to others. Our choice was based on Tripadvisor comments and we are not disappointed. What we learned from Tripadvisor is that one is just to concentrate on thorough analysis of negative remarks (which spoil the overall rating of a place) - in many cases people complain about things out of human control or just tend to exaggerate things. Thus we were prepared to minor inconveniences such as street noise, basic breakfast and climbing steps.
A couple of points from our personal experience: 1) firstly we fully agree with all others commending Aklesia and Gianfranco for the human touch they add to their business 2) we got a free map of Rome from Gianfranco (we lost 15 minutes at Termini station trying in vain to locate a tourist office) 3) Gianfranco kindly provided us with the must-see itinirary which we strictly followed and which saved us a lot of time.and ensured most effective sight-seeing 4) our room (Golden View) had a WC equipped with automatic sewage pump which was an unusual experience 5) Aklesia gave us directions to the bus at Termini r/w station (2 stops by the tube from Colosseum) which goes to Fiumicino airport and costs as little as €4 per person. It took us only 35 minutes to get there. The service seems to be run by individual entrepreneurs therefore the price is very competitive compared to €7 by TrenItalia shuttle and €14 fast train.
