My husband and I were touring Italy and recently stayed at this B&B for two nights. This B&B is on the top floor of a building right off the Spanish Steps, we had an excellent view of the steps. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was small (to be expected) but it only had a half glass door, meaning that when you took showers half the water ended up in the floor. Because of this, the wood was rotting at the bottom of the posts on the door - I would suggest asking for extra towels when checking in (you'll need them because of this). The location felt relatively safe considering there were three locks to access the room (main building, B&B hall, room). There was a mini-fridge but no safe. There was an elevator to the top level, however this was very small, really only a two person lift or for luggage. We did not get the breakfast so I can't attest to the selection, however, we did have difficulty finding a decent restaurant for brunch in the area so I would suggest taking up the breakfast offer.
We stayed at this particular B&B for the location, I had read in a travel journal that this area had a lot of shopping and the steps were popular. I was dissapointed in the area. Yes, it does have a lot of shopping but the stores weren't particularly in my price range (very high end) and even the little Italian made clothing shops were extremely overpriced - I am sure due to the high level of tourists. We also stayed near the Pantheon during our trip and found it much more friendly to pedestrians and had many more options for restaurants. Also, one evening we had our window open and were were just relaxing enjoying the street noise from the spanish steps when a kid starting shining a laser light into the room (vendors sell these green laser lights on the streets). We ended up having to shut the shutters, window and the blackout curtains to keep the laser out. I don't think this area is ideal for couples or families.
If this area is your preference, this is a nice B&B.
