Firstly, ignore the second B in the classification, there is no breakfast at the hotel. There is, however, a bar on an adjacent corner where a coffee and a pastry costs €2.50 p.p.
The entrance to the hotel isn't distinguished by anything like a name over the door so look for the orangey-yellow building with the double brown door. Press the labelled bell for admission.
The lift is up a very short set of stairs and is small; if a couple has a large case each it might mean two trips.
Desk staff are very helpful and friendly and know the area. Our room was clean and spacious with a nice view over Trastevere rooftops. The bed, however, was hard; no picket springing here, but the sheets were clean and crisp. There are no tea/coffee making facilities but there is a fridge. Furnishings are basic and functional and none the worse for that.
The location us fantastic; buses into the centre of Rome a minute's walk or a fifteen minute gentle stroll. Vatican about one mile along the bank or catch bus no.23 just over the bridge.
A wealth of small restaurants and bars in the always interesting Trastevere district; you won't go wrong with the Alle Fratte di Trastevere.
I would certainly stay here again for location and price it's excellent but oh...that bed.
