When we planned our 10 day Italian honeymoon we did a lot of research online and pre-booked everything 5 months in advance. We liked what we saw at the B&B SantiQuattro website (especially rooms with views of the colossseum) and based on the pictures and reviews we booked a double room for our last day, which was confirmed (at that time, again a week before the trip, and again the night before).
We arrived on our final day of the trip to find that the room we wanted was not available, but they had a "nice apartment" for us (he offered two choices). This place was around the corner and down the street and did not have views of the coloseum. The apartments were dirty and run-down, but we were tired and chose one. The host left us to think. On a lark, I lifted the bedsheets and found dead bed-bugs (none living, but still...) We left immediately and looked for another place to stay. We were upset about our reservation being arbitrarily changed, about the condition of the apartments, and about the bugs. I have not yet checked my visa to see if we were charged for the night, but I hope that we were not. Luckily we did find a great place to stay for the night.
I assume the B&B rooms are nice and Fabrizio seemed nice, but the whole operation seemed a little sketchy.More
