We stayed here from 12-16 May 2013 & were really pleased with our choice. Easy to find the Via Cavour from Termini rail station, where the bus from Ciampino Airport stopped, then a 20-25 minute walk (not rushing). Not so interesting at first- although passing Santa Maria Maggiore on the way- we then glimpsed the Colosseum down a side road, & were delighted to find that The Forum was just at the end of the road, about 2 minutes walk away from Downtown. Lorenzo, the host, was most pleasant & helpful, the whole place was spotlessly clean throughout, & we were relieved to find that the clamour of the busy main road was really well shut out by the quadruple glazing in the room; 2 double glazed opening windows separated by a space of a few inches.The bed was firm & comfortable. Everywhere had been recently renovated to a good standard. It was fine for us, but a very large person would find the size of the shower cubicle difficult. Lorenzo brought breakfast to the room at a time of our choosing; fruit juice, hard boiled egg, 'toast' in a packet(rather nice), butter, jam,criossant/pastry, yoghurt, smallish cup of good coffee, warm milk. There was no kettle in the room.The room was cleaned daily & the sheets & towels changed after 2 nights. With the help of the very good street map Lorenzo gave us, we found many wonderful sights on foot, & had lovely meals nearby (ask Lorenzo).WiFi & early check-in were useful, & Downtown made an excellent good value base for our stay. By the way, at Tourist Information (go to end of road, turn left) you can get a pot of tea for E1.20 in their courtyard; and if you are over 65 & an EU resident, entrance to the Colosseum & Forum is free !(show your passport). Take comfortable shoes & have a wonderful time.
