Two families traveling together, total 4 adults and 4 teens. We stayed 3 nights at the B&B. Easy walk from the Metro station, maybe a 5 minute walk once you know where your going. The B&B is located in an apartment building which has a buzzer intercom system to be let in (you get your own key once you check in for the main door). We had the whole apartment to ourselves since we were a large group and this worked out fabulously. The balcony was very nice but unfortunately it was too cold for us to use it. The apartment was very nice, small kitchen and bathrooms but that is normal for Europe. There is an expresso machine, toaster oven, microwave, refrig. and oven along with all the utensils, plates, cups, etc. Water, juice, milk, cereal and packaged pastries are provided. The owner will bring up a small plate of fresh pastries every day. Unfortuantely we were always leaving for the day of sightseeing when these were brought up so we ate them in the evening upon our return.
My only complaint, and this isn't the owners fault really, is that we only had one good night sleep. The first night we were woken up about 11 p.m. by someone ringing our doorbell (this person was inside the building and actually at the apt. door). We didn't open the door but tried to speak to him thru the door. He was saying something about being "Official" and the rest was in italian. After he rang the doorbell for about 2-3 minutes and yelling at us he left and never returned. At midnight we woken up again by our doorbell ringing and there are two young English speaking girls at the door looking for the owner of the B&B.
Third night of our stay and there is a lady outside the building ringing every buzzer and yelling "Please let me in". This continued from 3-3:30 a.m.
All in all a great place to stay for the cost and I would recommend it especially for groups because they can all stay in one place.
