A reasonably-priced room to crash in, kind of like a private room in a hostel. But not a true B&B. This is essentially an apartment with three bedrooms rented out.

PROS: The location is excellent if you want/need to be close to St. Peters, and the place is very clean, and the rooms are tastefully decorated.

CONS:
Little privacy--keep in mind the family (the owner, her mother, and now presumably her child as she was pregnant in June 2004 when we visited) share the apartment too, along with potentially 6+ guests.
The kitchen is the entranceway to the apartment and to the guest rooms, and even though the family has its own wing, they have to go through this kitchen regularly. Also bear in mind that the apartment is on the 4th floor and there's no lift.

Also no private bath. It is advertised on the web site that all three rooms have a private bath. We stayed in the room with the black-and-white scribbly-patterned bedding (if you look at the web site photos you'll which one we mean) and our "private" bathroom was outside of our room, across the common kitchen.

We were also told (and there are signs on the property to this effect) not to sit or linger in the common kitchen area past 9 am. This wasn't the sort of place where you could pop back in the afternoon to change or lounge around for an hour in between activities. I always felt like I was intruding and had to tiptoe around.
