We always tend to stay in B&Bs, wherever we travel, however this has got to be one of the worst ones. However, there were some good points with the bad, make of it what you will:
Standard of cleanliness - great, spotless, not a speck of dust or dirt anywhere
Bed was comfortable - need to see below for other comments
Location - great for the colosseum and food
Restaurants surrounding the B&B were great, not actually on Via dello Statuto, but those on Via Merulana were fantastic
Man on the desk: Accommodating and polite (however not much else)
Shower: Great, good pressure and hot
Room was pretty small
VERY NOISY! Rooms are next to a busy road which is so loud you cannot have the windows open and hold a conversation with someone. The Italians love to use their horns too, which can prove annoying at 7am in the morning. Also, inside the building, it can be quite noisy, walls are quite thin, I had to complain when people were talking and running up and down the corridor at midnight as it sounded as if they were in the room!
Breakfast: Definitely the worst breakfast I have been served when staying at a B&B/hotel/friends house! It was literally a lukewarm iced tea and a chocolate doughnut. Horrendous, how they can claim that they offer breakfast I do not know. Oh and it's in a horrible bar downstairs which is not particularly clean or welcoming.
Beds: Two singles joined together to make a double, however there was a big gap between the two covered over by a double sheet.
Fridge is pretty crap - it was not even close to being cold, and yes, it did apparently work.
Oh and finally, no bin!
