On the plus side, it's 200m from the Manzoni metro station (Line A) and 15 minutes time walk from Colosseum. The area is relatively quiet at night and we felt safe there. The room, exactly like in the photos we had seen, had new furnishings, very comfortable bed and pillows and was cleaned every day (maybe not perfectly, but still..). The wifi connection was excellent. They also offer breakfast (coffee and croissant) in a nearby cafe (1 minute from the B&B's entrance). We used the air-conditioning for heating and it was all good. Lastly, the owner as well as all the people working there were very accommodating and even brought us a map and pointed out all the places we should visit and where we should eat.
Downside, the room's soundproofing was virtually inexistent. We could hear everything that went on in the street as well as in the rest of the B&B like there are no windows or doors. Late at night we also heard noise and footsteps from the floor above. We were pretty exhausted, though and slept through all of that! Also, beware of the numbering in the street. The B&B is at number 73, though the numbers jump from 113 to 77 (if I'm not mistaken) at one point.
Despite of the disadvantages, we recommend the place and wouldn't mind staying there again sometime.
