We were guests in Stephano Milano's "My Guest Roma" in early November 2012 for 11 days.
Summary: Just before our Rome visit we had just completed a two week tour with a 5 star guided tour company, so our tastes were set quite high. There simply were no disappointments. No 5 star facility in Rome could have provided more useful/hospitable accommodations. This resulted in a most efficient and enjoyable visit.
The Facility: Located in a quiet and safe neighborhood, less than a block from the bus, a 10 minute walk to the metro (10 minutes to Rome center). Several excellent restaurants are in easy walking distance (especially the Chinese one just across the street), as well as pharmacy, full service grocery and banking. Our room was very large by European standards, simply but well furnished, with ample closet space, firm and most comfortable beds, a small refrigerator, a nice bath with a small but adequate shower and absolutely spotless. The room was very quiet with no disturbances from either inside or outside noise. Internet signal was strong and a loaner laptop was available on request. An assortment of umbrellas were available at the door. The only possible negative was that we were unable to locate any English speaking stations on the TV (that would have been totally unimportant had it not been during the November US election.)
The Breakfast: (A preface -- B&B's in Rome are not allowed to cook for their guests.) There was a very wide selection of breads, rolls, cookies, spreads, cereals, cheese, fresh fruit, juices and most any coffee product one would desire. The breakfasts begin at 8:00 AM but if one's plan calls for any earlier, Stephano would prepare a wide selection of your choosing and put in the room the day before.
The Hosts: Stephano and his staff are the most cordial and helpful and patience hosts that one could imagine. Each day he would ask about our desires, make suggestions, provide maps, brochures and detailed descriptions for transportation. He is most knowledgeable of Rome, its attractions/facilities and makes reservations at those sites requiring such. He is most concerned with the comfort and enjoyment of his guests. One example was that my wife was in need of some medication and he insisted on accompanying us to the local pharmacy, communicating her needs and even convincing them to provide medication which, in Italy, requires a prescription (not in the USA). He makes arrangements for taxi service (including airport pickup) and for the four times we used such, it was very prompt, economical and comfortable.
