Location: This was a unique location, in the Jewish ghetto. An oasis (at least for someone who likes unique spots) in the touristy downtown of Rome. It was hard for the taxi to find, even though we knew it would be challenging from Trip Advisor. Then we had to pull our suitcases for a block. We used the same taxi from then on, so no more problems. The Jewish restaurants nearby were great, not outrageously expensive, and a couple of them were ranked in a great terroir restaurant book at the B & B. Not everyone in our party liked the nearby restaurants, as Jewish-Roman food isn't what they were expecting, but the "foodies" were happy. Jewish artichokes (only in artichoke season) are amazing. There was an excellent cheese & cured meat shop nearby.
Suite: It was good for travelling with family - my husband and I, his parents, aunt & uncle. There were no stairs, which was good for older people. Clean, pleasant rooms and bathroom. It had a very small central sitting area with two chairs, and we could fit in two more chairs brought from the bedrooms. Breakfast was serve-yourself, and was bare bones continental, but there was an espresso maker which made good coffee. No telephone. (And no pay phone nearby that we could find when we needed one (see below).)
General: The brothers gave good restaurant recommendations! And we could show up at the family store nearby and they would check things for us on the internet. One unpleasant thing, service-wise, happened the last day. There was no phone in the suite, and our taxi for the airport hadn't shown up. None of us had a cell phone. Simone had told us to buzz him with any questions, so we buzzed him at 10 AM on a Saturday, told him the problem, and he said he was "asleep", and "naked", and then hung up. I found a grocery store nearby that let me use their phone, and we got our taxi. This was the only time anything like this happened. Everyone was otherwise helpful and polite.
Favourite thing: The location and nearby restaurants.
Worst thing: No telephone, and one unhelpful interaction with host around that when we were trying to get to the airport.
