As others have pointed out it is an old family residence, situated right in the middle of the city, on a small cobbled street across from part of the Roman forum. Fantastic views from the rooftop terrace. Our group of 7 took over one of the floors . We all had ensuite bathrooms( no bath but a good shower).
Our room (Elena)was at the back, with no view- overlooking a courtyard. It was large and clean and had WiFi and was very quiet. The heating took a while to work out but eventually we managed. The floor was very cold so I'd suggest bringing some socks or slippers. A few small rugs would be great beside the bed! Our bed was extremely hard- no- one else had such a hard bed.
Bring shampoo and shower gel. Don't forget to close the shutters or else you might wake up
with the birds:-)
Breakfast was self-service.-eggs, jams, butter, juices , fruit and toast bread. There is a fridge in the kitchen where you can also store your own items. One of our party kindly went out to buy fresh bread in the morning as well as some ham from a deli.
Gian Luca was an excellent host.. He gave us recommendations for restaurants that were great and just around the corner. He also recommended shopping areas and markets to visit.
A great bed and breakfast.
