We needed an inexpensive B&B near the Termini train station in Rome for the night of May 23, 2012, so that we could catch an early flight the next day from the airport. We walked the block or two from the station, rang the bell, and were greeted by a pleasant gentleman who spoke no English. He got us settled in and understood our sign language enough to order us a cab for the next morning. After that, we saw no one, since we left before breakfast was served the next day.
The B&B is on the second floor (one flight up) and appears to have only three rooms. Ours was small but extremely clean and comfortable. The furniture seemed new and everything well cared for. It was odd not seeing anyone other than our host (briefly), but the arrangement met our needs perfectly.
The neighborhood is certainly not the best in Rome, but it seemed safe enough and there were restaurants nearby. One was just around the corner. So, it met our needs perfectly and cost only 90 Euros.
