It has been a little while since we stayed here but I wanted to just add my opinion as I have been recommending this little place to my friends. When we first arrived at the front door you think - why did we pick here? It is on a small street close to the main train station, you will probably pass quite a few beggars and have to avoid being run over by crazy moped drivers (but that is Rome isn't it). You then enter and are confronted by many flights of stairs (you can take the lift - but we are stubborn) but when you actually enter the place it is just lovely! Our room was really clean and modern looking and our friends stayed just accross the hall in a similarly appointed room. We stayed in mid June and it was very hot but in our rooms we couldn't even tell as the air conditioning was superb!! Although we didn't see much of the lady who runs the B+B, she was very helpful and even e-mailed us prior to our trip to make sure she was available for when we arrived.
We found that the location of the place was just perfect as everything begins and ends at the main train station. We found the buses quite confusing but we always knew that if we messed it up, we would at some point end up back at the station. The Sixty three B+B is only 5 minutes walk from the station and although at first we were worried about the beggars, we travelled through this area at all times of the day and night and did not feel threatened at all. Also very useful is the information points and shops that are available at the train station and the buses that take you to the airport.
Finally I would like to add that there was internet access in the B+B and the breakfast was of continental style, don't expect service though as it is only a small place. It is a laid out for you on the tables and you just help yourself and leave all your pots for the maid to clean (we washed them the first day as we felt bad). Just to add, this is probably not the place for you if you would like a concierge and staff running around after you night and day but superb if you want a cheap, clean, well located place to rest your head then I would thoroughly recommend it and I would definately stay there again!!!
