We recently rented 3 rooms for several nights during our pre-cruise stay in Rome. The location is absolutely perfect, a block from the Pantheon, and within walking distance of everything in the ancient section. If you only have a few days for Rome, why waste all your time taking taxis and buses? We had two rooms overlooking the piazza (which were actually pretty quiet despite this) and a large suite in the back.
The rooms were spacious by Roman standards and clean, the breakfasts more than adequate, with cereals, meats, cheeses, fresh fruit and juices, and custom made espresso or cappucino. They even offered us breakfast upon our arrival pretty early in the morning, even though the rooms were not yet available.
A ton of restaurants nearby, including a few we had great meals at reasonable prices, such as Casa Coppelle and La Tavernetta 48.
Be aware that there is no elevator, but it is only one flight up, so not too bad. Also, note that this is not a full-fledged hotel, so there are times when there may not be somebody in the office. But those are minor inconveniences compared to the overall quality and location of this lodging.
Unfortunately, I did not personally meet Francesco, as he was busy working on additional units to rent out, which is welcome news for those needed rooms in the future.
In short, highly recommend the Relais Maddalena in Rome.
