There is already a lot of information here so I will try to fill in the gaps to help other travelers.
My mom and I stayed five nights here in mid May. The B&B is located on the fifth floor in the building. When you enter the "lobby" of the building you must climb two sets of stairs to reach the elevator. The elevator is small but enough room for four people or two with luggage. After reaching the the fifth floor you must climb some more stairs and then go down some more stairs before you reach the B&B. I mention the stairs because if you have mobility issues this can be a challenge. My mom had knee surgery several years back and the stairs were a little challenge for her plus she sprained her ankle in Paris prior to arriving in Rome.
The room we stayed in was called the Castellano room (I think I got the name right) it was a spacious room with two beds (a third roll a way bed was stored away as a chair in the corner) This was a double room (two separate beds) and each bed was the size of a single bed in the U.S., so yes very small. It had a beautiful balcony. The bathroom was average size with a shower that water would pool up near the drain but would eventually drain. The rooms were cleaned daily but the towels were changed every three days. The room had a desk and chair to write your postcards back home and a small tv. The tv received a handful of english speaking channels, mainly financial news services.Now the location was great. Ten minute walk to St Peters Square. Fifteen minutes to the Metro. Lots of great restaurants and gelato shops.
The main reason we came to Rome was that my mom wanted to visit the Vatican. She had been here years before when on a cruise but didn't have much time to see much. For the price and location this was a great find. Luca was very helpful. He made a large breakfast every morning.
Pros Location to the Vatican
Metro within walking distance
Great BIG breakfast every morning
Luca was kind and helpful
Restaurant and gelato and post office and banks nearby.
Tour bus stop five minute walk down the street
Cons Cash only
Lots of steps to get to the B&B door
This is a great place to stay. If you have real bad mobility issues it may be hard with all the stairs. I wish Luca would have mentioned in one of the five emails we sent to each other that this was a CASH only place. I do know that some B&B require a cash payment but just having stayed at a B&B in Paris that was not a issue there and were happy to process our c/c. I only mention this because I support my travel with my c/c points and luckily it was at the end of our trip and I had the cash available. No where on the B&B website is this mentioned.
