We stayed at Hotel Maryelen for one night prior to our departure from Rome. We wanted a place close to the train station so we could easily get to the airport via the express train. The area around the train terminal isn't necessarily the best, but the hotel was only 2 blocks away and we didn't feel unsafe.
The staff were welcoming and friendly. There weren't any problems checking in or getting to our room. The B&B appears to be in a building shared by another hotel/B&B and some private residences. Our room was in a hallway with several other suites and these were segregated from the rest of the building by a door with a lock.
The bed was very firm and there was no individual A/C control in our room. It was a hot, humid, July day and it would have been nice to lower the temperature a bit to make it more comfortable for sleeping. The bathroom was clean & modern but small (6' x 4'). There was a small TV but it was mounted above the clothes closet, close the ceiling, and hard to see. The room reminded me of a college dorm room, spartan but clean. We were able to hear the guests in the surrounding rooms, not sure if they were loud or the walls thin. The room also had a small dorm-type refrigerator. Internet access is available in the lobby from early morning until midnight.
The breakfast was ok, I would have preferred fresh fruit and some fruit juices. Lots of buns/rolls/bread and some meat & cheese. The coffee machine was great and made a nice cappuccino.
As mentioned by others, it would have been good to pay by CC but the policy is clearly outlined on the website. Communication with the owners was prompt and easy.
This B&B wasn't like a typical US bed and breakfast but it was clean, the price was good, and it was conveniently located to the train station.
