I chose this B&B based on TA reviews, and for its location. My wife & I stayed here for 4 nights, and it had it's pros & cons:
This is a converted apartment, and it makes you feel like you've moved to Rome and are living with the locals. It feels more alive and integrated than staying in a traditional hotel, which I really enjoyed.
The location is excellent. It is a 15 minute walk to Vatican City, 20 minutes to Piazza Navona, and only a 5 minute walk to the Metro for any other locations you may want to visit.
Another plus about the location. It is just off the shopping district which means it's a middle / upper class area and feels very safe (though I've never encountered a part of Rome that I felt was dangerous).
The kitchen has a coffee maker, fridge, stove, oven, and dinnerware in case you want to bring home your own food. It's not clear whether we were allowed to use the stove & oven, so ask first if you're thinking about it.
As this is a converted apartment (multi-story building with courtyard), some of the neighbors across the courtyard were quite loud and didn't seem to care that their yells echo very loudly into all of the other apartments.
The water pressure in the shower was dismal.
The supplied breakfast is nothing more than basic twisted bread and an assortment of jellies/jams. However, there is also milk & juice in the fridge that's replenished as needed.
As previously stated, the rental is a converted apartment. There is a shared kitchen & dining room, then (three, I believe) bedrooms with private bathrooms. With only three rooms, it mostly feels like you have the place to yourself. Only twice did I encounter fellow renters in the B&B, and they were considerate & quiet when coming & going.
