The first thing you are going to encounter upon your arrival is the scariest elevator you will probably ever have to ride in. I'm not sure what century it is from but it scared the dickins out of all of us and my husband walked up and down 4 floors refusing to get in it. The elevator is small, made of glass, so those afraid of heights (or elevators) might have to close their eyes.
Besides the elevator, the B&B is a renovated apartment turned into a guesthouse. Centrally located across from the Opera House and easy to walk to most destinations or a short taxi away from the Vatican, for example.
It is beautifully decorated (light, airy, colorful) and designed. The beds are incredibly comfortable and we all slept like babies and didn't hear a sound outside. Both the room and the bathroom were incredibly clean.
The only con is the wifi, the signal didn't reach our rooms, as the router is in the central area/office and we stayed in the two rooms further back. This could be easily solved with a signal booster/amplifier and a cheap solution. Having to go into the main area to check your mail was kind of a pain, but not a dealbreaker and the only reason for giving a lower score. If they fixed the wifi, I would have rated it a full 5 stars.
