149 Guesthouse is in Testaccio, across the Ponte Sublicio bridge from Trastevere. It is about a 10 minute walk from the Piramide metro station, and within walking distance ( about 30 mins) to the
Coliseum. The busy English-speaking landlady, Paula,, was most helpful and friendly' She does not live on the premises, however, though was available by phone. Therefore make sure she knows of your arrival time at the apartment when you book. She provided us with some local information regarding restaurants, shops etc. - information about local buses would have been useful - and how to buy the tickets! The premises were spotlessly clean ; we had an ensuite bedroom overlooking the busy and very noisy Via Marmorata. The balcony consisted of a very narrow area, too small to eat on and overlooking the street. I believe the bedroom at the back of the building would have been much quieter. Breakfast was disappointing - by Roman law all B/B food has to be prewrapped - though plentiful coffee was on hand.Don't miss the wonderful Porto Portese Sunday market - go early!
