My wife, daughter and I stayed for three days at Pirandello for the final leg of our trip in Italy and we had a great stay for a relatively good price. We were referred by a friend who stayed in the past.
The B&B is located a little out of the way in a tiny street few cabbies have heard of. Naturally, you will not want to run around Rome in your own car and Pirandello provide a walled parking lot for 10 Euros. Outside, if you find parking, you can park out the day for 8 - provided you find said parking spot. Bologna metro station is a walk distance away and there's other public transports. If you want to get a taxi, have the reception order one, it's difficult to flag one on the street.
The room is minimalist in design and had room for an extra bed for my daughter. Along with the extra bed the room was a little too cozy but otherwise convenient. You get a closet, a suitcase cabinet, safe and a stocked bathroom with tub and shower. TV was tiny and far away but that may be because of the extra bed.
The elevator was the old style "manual door" with box in a cage. It was serviceable and quaint.
The real jewels here are the staff and the breakfast. The receptionists kind and helpful, the breakfast barista eager and efficient. Where we needed maps, taxis, assistance, we got answered immediately and with excellent results. All staff spoke English.
The breakfast was a fairly standard buffet until you get to the confectioneries corner. I say "corner" but should really say "stack". Danishes, pies, croissants, cereal, cookies ... and so much more. I've never had Pine nut pie - and I come from a country with plenty of pine nut, it was nothing short of amazing.
I will recommend Pirandello to stay but be sure to plan your excursions to the city with the distance in mind.
