My husband and I stayed at the room Luciano rents in his home for four nights this past week. True, the bathroom is small - and if that's a problem for you, maybe you're better off at a more north american style hotel. But the charm, location and hospitality of Luciano's cannot be beat. Luciano welcomed us immediately on arrival (I think he was sitting in the window waiting for our cab to arrive) and spent a long time with us, getting us oriented, letting us know how things (buses, taxis, restaurants) work, and how to be safe in Rome. Throughout our trip he was a great source of knowledge and information on directions, language, prices, restaurants, and even once got on the bus with us to make sure we knew where we were going.
Our room was perfectly comfortable, though I would recommend earplugs if you enjoy napping in the afternoon, as there is quite a bit of noise in the streets during the daytime. The bathroom was small, but everything worked very well and it was more than sufficient, if not luxurious.
The location was just about perfect - everything within easy walking distance. We frequently went out to Piazza Navona, or the square at the Vatican for evening strolls, as though we were just out for a walk in the neighbourhood.
Luciano is still working on his english, so when you book make sure you are clear about what you need (don't ramble - it doesn't translate well) but be assured that Luciano is nothing but a good and honest host.
I would highly recommend B&B Luciano Pascucci to anyone wanting the charm and authenticity of true Roman accommodations and the warmth and hospitality that usually only comes from staying with family.
