The only advantage of this B&B is location. Via Tunisi takes you right to the entrance of Vatican museums (about 300 meters). It is also easy to get to St. Peters cathedral early in the morning (opens at 7 a.m.) before crowd of tourists comes from other locations. It is also very close to the metro - 5-7 minutes walk. There is a grocery store on the ground floor of the same building and there are several cafes close by. There is an open food market right at the corner, but we did not buy anything there as it closed before we returned to B&B.
This B&B is a four rooms apartment. There is a couple with 4 months old baby who live in one of the rooms there. Christian, the guy who lives there with a family was really friendly and helped with mapping the things, but spoke no English.
The other three rooms are used as B&B. The room we had did not look like the one on the web site. The bathroom, shared by all three rooms of B&B guests is close to the room where family with the baby live. I personally felt very uncomfortable when we came late and use the bathroom having in mind sleeping baby next to it. There are also rules posted on the entrance door that say you are supposed to be quiet from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. and during siesta time. Since the only thing we did at B&B was sleeping there was no problem for us, but this is not the place for a loud company.
The biggest disappointment was breakfast. When we arrived, we were shown the table with a cattle and some packed food there. Christian told us they have self-service breakfast. The first day it was OK as we had some coffee and pastries. On the second day there was nothing except for bread and jam, they were out of coffee. We chose to buy some stuff at the grocery store ourselves. The only time food supply was renewed in our 5 days stay was when somebody new arrived. So, do not count on breakfast there.
We had an overall OK experience but I would not recommend this place to my friends.
