Bon bags - is it a scam?

I need to store my luggage for 6 hours tomorrow and the only alternative to the Termini I have found is Bon Bags. However, I've not seen a single review of it. Is this a scam?

Can anyone confirm or know of a hotel that might take in our luggage for 6 hours around the Spanish steps/via corso?

Help!

Thanks

if you find a hotel let us know so we can avoid staying in a place that would accept bags from strangers on the street

It's unlikely to be a scam - indeed they're listed as one of the tourist services giving a discount to holders of the city's RomaPass.....

Just a bit too tedious, perhaps, for people to write up?

Why wouldn't you want to use the left luggage service at Termini station?

Anyway, his pain was so bad this rnomg we booked into a hotel for the day so he could rest. It was worth it.

Hi. Just back from a weekend in Rome, we stayed in a apartment and had to check out on the Sunday before 11am. Stumbled across Bon bags online on saturday evening and contacted them via facebook. They were back to me straightaway and quoted €21 to pick up our bags at 8 in the morning and drop them to us at the airport at 20:30 that night. So we got to spend a full day on tours without having to worry about luggage at all. Bags were security sealed at pick up. Great service, and nice people to deal with.
