This might be the perfect hotel for you if youre a well worn budget traveler without picky tastes. The pro's are as everyone else stated: great location-the number 8 tram to PZA Venezia (where all the tourist attractions are located) is literally outside the door, the blow dryer works great, close to returants and some shopping, decent neighborhood where I never felt unsafe.
The cons: First, this place is not as clean as I hoped and read from reviews. When I got to my room after a long day of travel, my sheets literally had crumbs and hair on them. I had to run downstairs to get my own clean sheets from the night worker. Second, the staircase and hallway areas were never once mopped or cleaned! See the pics. We stayed 6 nights and we kept joking about how it got dirtier and dirtier as the week wore on!
There are also two more things that I think would bother picky travelers such as the construction noise in the mornings. We were not warned of this, but there was a huge scaffolding covering the front of the hotel which made it difficult to see from the street. Also I do not recommend the breakfast which is NOT included in the price! Don't be fooled. Someone cracked open a can of fruit cocktail drowning in syrup and stuck it in a round bowl. The "eggs" are made from powder perhaps as the texture Is quite odd.
In short, if you want a good location and a cheap palace to stay (cheap by Rome standards) this B&B is your place. If you're uncomfortable with somewhat dirty and very plain dorm room like places, find somewhere else to stay. If you do stay here, take a train at the airport to Trastevere station (not main station) 15 Euro round trip at the window-We avoided taxis as recommended on many sites and once there you literally walk straight forward on Vaile de Trastevere about 500 meters. Follow the B&B signs and don't worry so much about the dodgy appearance of the train station area. You will be just fine once you get to the hotel.
