Five of us landed in Rome then rented a bus and drove to Il Vecchio Treno. The office for the establishment is up the street (a busy street with no parking) So you must ring them and pay cash and then they show you where you can park and you hall your luggage up 4 flights of stairs. The doors are always locked and the hall lights are on a timer which does not give
you time to arrive at your room sometimes. The rooms were very clean and comfortable but quite noisy which I have learned is common in Italy. The breakfast was a disgrace by Italian standards. They made a big deal about giving us the equivalent of WWII rations. Nothing was fresh and everything was prepackaged in a factory. We waited and waited for some essence of Italian hospitality to come out of the kitchen but unfortunately not.
The traffic was very hectic for pedestrians and the B & B was not in the center of town. Granted you could walk easily to Villa Gregoriana and the wonderful restaurant overlooking the park but we would have enjoyed being closer to the wonderful Villa D'Este in Hindsight there were many more restaurants and coffee shops in that area. Live and Learn they say. The Bus to Villa Adriana was a nightmare with people crammed in as the door closed and we had a long hot walk to the entrance. A taxi would have been much wiser. Hope this helps others with their plans.
