We stayed at Casa Linnea at the beginning of our trip to Italy because we wanted to be in walking distance to the Vatican. For that, it was very very good. We also walked to Piazza Navona, the Jewish quarter, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, and Piazza del Populo.
The accommodation itself is very simple. Our room was on a quiet courtyard on the first floor of a 19th-century building. The bathroom was large, and there was a separate WC, which meant we had two sinks, which we liked. We had two folding chairs, but at least we had chairs. There was another bedroom in the apartment, so renting both rooms could be convenient for a family or two couples traveling together. We could not get internet access in our apartment, but apparently Casa Linnea has another apartment that does pick up free internet access. The hostess was not tech savvy.
As other reviewers have noted, breakfast was disappointing--cereal, milk, juice, and bread for toast. On the first morning the hostess brought us each a fresh croissants, but on the second day there were just two pastries wrapped in plastic. The Nespresso machine was convenient once we learned that it had to warm up for several minutes.
The accommodation is more like a private apartment than a B&B. We wanted to communicate with the hostess about leaving our luggage after check out, but the only way to do that was to telephone her or use the intercom at the front door downstairs.
We appreciated her recommendation to use the travel agency across the street to make train reservations rather than going back to the train station to do so.
