I stayed in the Blue Room. It was very nice - large and with a great bathroom. Flat screen TV (for those who care to watch TV in Italy), mini fridge. The bath towels were like the ones we're used to in America - big and fluffy. Actually, huge and fluffy. There was even a nice bathrobe that was so comfy I almost wore it to bed. A cute little courtyard is right outside your door.
Simona is extremely nice. She even made herself available to give me the key when I arrived after 9:30pm (and couldn't call to tell her I'd be later than expected, because my phone wasn't working). She also was patient with me when I realized I didn't have enough cash to pay her on the last morning and had to go to a cash machine and meet her back later at lunchtime to pay.
The room is on the first floor, but it felt very safe because the only access was through 3 doors: one very heavy one to the building, another metal gate into the courtyard, and then the one to the room.
Breakfast is in the room next door in the courtyard. Some other reviewers have hinted at this, and in the interest of being honest, I have to agree that breakfast isn't the best I had. It's pretty much completely packaged. There is nothing cooked or baked there. Pastries, yogurt, juice, etc, all come in packages. So, I would think of this more as a bed than as a B&B. This was ok with me, because I was very happy with the room, and, again, Simona was great.
