This is a set of two letting rooms in an apartment. The facilities are private, so it is a bit like a single annex of a bigger place. It looks and feels professional. It is about 5 minutes walk from Termini railway station. There are many inexpensive restaurants in the area. We liked the area because you can walk to most places, even the Vatican was no more than about 30 minutes, and when you are done most buses, trams, metro etc., come back to the main station at Termini.
Our room was a good size, with a double bed and a single. There was also a fold out single chair-bed, so it would have been OK for two adults and two kids, one small.
The room was immaculately clean and nicely decorated.
There is window with shutters that looks out into the courtyard which made the room lovely and light.
The bathroom had a shower and bidet as well as WC (no tub).
The beds were comfortable (not rock hard as most Italian beds - what IS that all about?), the AC worked well. There was a basic (but nice) continental breakfast included. (Some juice would have been nice.)
The owner is very friendly and kind, for example offering our friend who popped in to meet up with us breakfast as well.
The place is accessed through a courtyard which is nice, it gives a real Roman feel, and is on the first floor with a small lift. The WiFi worked well. There was plenty of hot water.
We had our own key to come and go as we pleased. The owner looked after our bags until we left late on the last day.
In summary, this is an excellent value comfortable basic accommodation in the heart of Rome. We would recommend it to a couple or family on a budget who won't be spending a lot of time in the room (And why would you - you are in Rome). We do usually stay in four or five star hotels and were apprehensive about this visit, but we really enjoyed it and thought it great value. It also had character which a bigger hotel might have lacked.
