I found this gem on Tripadvisor and took the risk of booking it. It worked out a treat for the location being quite central. I must confess, I expected the room to have typical Italian swish decor and fine touches, but it has been on a very low budget. Remember you are out most of the time, so I guess it should not matter, but for the price you pay, I would have thought it is a perfect place to show off Italian taste at its best. We found the staff very helpful and very friendly indeed.May I add that we did get a fresh fruit salad with our breakfast, which made all the difference. If you get a room facing the street, it is very noisy throughout the night, so take ear plugs as ours came in very handy. Enjoy and make the most of the trip. Top tip, eat at Roscoli's, might need to book, just round the corner.

- A special place in Rome Nestling in a small square in the heart of Reinassance Rome on the remains of the ancient city, the 16th century palace was originally built for the noble family Alibrandi. The 18th century additions and subsequent renovation over the centuries have but added to the splendour. For four generations the building has belonged to the family now offering their unusually attractive bed & breakfast rooms and selfcatering apartments for discerning visitors to Rome. Their constant concern is maintaining their same traditionally high standards and ensuring the wellbeing of their guests and visitors of Rome. Great attention is paid to detail: antique furnishings and quality decor alongside modern amenities as well as the friendly but discreet sevice, make this private dwelling a very special selfcatering apartment in Rome. Casa Banzo hospitality begins in the stunning reception hall, with its stained glass and vaulted frescoed ceiling, continues in the comfort of the selfcatering apartments or bed & breakfast rooms. ... more less
