Very close to the Trastevere train station, which saves time, money and hassle if you arrive through Fiumicino. #8 tram stop right outside to get you to Largo Argentina and the heart of Old Rome. Another reviewer notes that he never saw anyone checking tickets, but the fare is only 1.50 Euros and I hate to leave a bad impression of foreigners over such a small amount. Locals accept that they can do it but resent outsiders doing the same thing. You may not notice it on a short stay, but you become aware of it on longer stays (3 1/2 months.) BTW, you buy the tickets at tobacco shops, not on the tram itself. Getting around Rome is easy, and cheap, but not the topic of this review.
The hotel; New, very clean, reasonable rates, and the room service is very friendly and amenable. Front desk is quite helpful. Very roomy and comfortable; beds with individual lighting and basic clothes storage. Lots of eating options, from pizza and kebab shops to 2 close-by grocery stores (Dem, and Simply). If what you are looking for is a simple and convenient base, this place provides everything you need. I will probably stay here again on my next trip to Rome.
A few minor points;
The bathroom is quite large and spacious, but the shower is a little small (although with an abundant stream of water).
Toilet seat a little wobbly, but this seems to be a pervasive Italian problem.
B&B usually implies, at least to me, that breakfast comes with the room. It does not here, and I would suggest a local pastry shop.
