We stayed at this bed and breakfast in February 2013. It is a bit off the beaten path but in an easily accessible location, a mere 10 minute walk to the colosseum. The b&b is an apartment with three bedrooms. They all have their own private bathroom and the kitchen area is shared. In the kitchen, you'll find an internet-connected computer for guest use as well as a washer and dryer. Especially the latter two came in handy given that Rome was the third stop on our Italian trip. The kitchen also has a fridge to store food, a toaster, coffee machine, cups, etc... the things you would expect to find in a kitchen. Breakfast is not much, actually a bit disappointing: pre-packed sliced bread, pre-packed croissants, some orange juice, milk, cereal and coffee are to be found. It's a self-service kitchen. Our room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. However, the pillows were a bit too thin and there were no extra pillows to be found. Also, bring your own soap and shampoo. It is not provided. There are towels available, though. Call ahead to let the manager know when you are checking in as he is not usually there. He comes to open the door, to give you the keys and an explanation of the place and that's it. If you expect a hotel service, this is not the place for you. It is a very independent stay which may suit some but not others. It was fine for us, though. We stayed for three nights. The first night we were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves. The second night, however, we discovered just how thin the walls are. After we had gone to bed around 9 PM after an exhausting day, the manager came in with someone else and they chatted in the kitchen for the longest time. Not sure what they were doing. It sounded like they were just hanging out. Anyway, it was very loud in our room. The third night was somewhat better. Another pair had checked into the room next to us but were thankfully quiet and we tried to do the same. But I can imagine if there are other guests in the kitchen, you don't get to sleep much as you can hear everything. Overall, it was not a bad stay. I mostly value cleanliness and this place was clean and comfortable.
