-The room (we had a triple room for only 2 people) is a really good size. The other rooms are
standard size but just as nice. There are only 6 rooms in the entire bed and breakfast. Ours was
great. Exceptionally clean, everything was brand new, and the bathroom was immaculate. Hot water and great pressure in the shower too.
-There's a safe in the room and a big closet to hang clothes.
-Cleaning lady straightened up and gave new sheets and towels etc. just like a hotel.
-Bed was very comfortable
-It's very private. Noone will bother you there or make noise. It's also away from all the tourists at night.
-Free breakfast was at the cafe directly next door. Not really breakfast, just a croissant and coffee.
- Within 5mins of the French embassy and US embassy (massive) so there was tons of guards and security cameras in our area. Very safe.
-Mini bar prices were very cheap for beer and drinks.
-Taxi stand is 5min walk away, (but we recommend getting the 'hop on hop off' bus tickets to view all the attractions.)
-No reception, no concierge, noone to greet you.
-When you enter the B and B it's pitch black cuz the lights are on timers, you can easily flip the switch but it's weird to open the door to the floor that its on and it's pitch black.
-You might have to wait if the owner isn't at the building when you arrive. We had to wait about 25 minutes for the owner to get there to let us in and give us a key. It was like going into an apartment building. We were on the 6th floor. He gave us a key to get in the building, a key to get into the b and b, and a key to our room. If you don't have an intl phone it might be a problem as the owners are not always there.
-The location could have been a bit better. It was a good 20 min walk to city center.
-The WIFI was very unreliable. It worked fine the first night but after that the connection was off and on. That is important because we wanted to make dinner reservations and look at tourist attractions to visit. It was very expensive to make phone calls on our intl lines and with no one at the front desk we felt a bit abandoned. The owners helped when we spoke to them in person but again, we had to wait for them to come a few hours before the connection was restored. They made a few suggestions which were very good.
Overall we really liked the place itself. The room was amazing and perfectly clean but we would not stay there again. It was our first time at a B&B and we now know that we prefer walking into a lobby and knowing there is someone you can rely on at all times if need be. If you have an itinerary set for your stay in Rome, or know the city, we highly recommend this B&B, as the rooms are probably nicer than most hotels!
