The B&B is situated next to the Viminale; as this huge complex is a Ministry it stays very calm till 9am :).
There are only 4 rooms, recently refurbished, all on the 1st floor and accessible with a lift. Our room was the only one having a little balcony. Spacious room(20m²), tiled, with huge ceiling, airco & heating. Beds with latex mattress (a little too firm to my liking), wardrobe, dressing table with flatscreen TV, small round table & 2 chairs, safety box. Bathroom with shower (+ rainshower), toilet, bidet & sink, floor & walls tiled.
Breakfast (Italian : glass of juice, hot drink, fresh croissant, 2 rusks, butter, jam and a yoghurt) is served in the room.
Everything is very clean. Owners speak English & French and are helpful when asked.
We walked to all the touristic places without difficulties but there is also a bus for the City centre and the Vatican at 500m.
Several small restaurants for lunch and dinner in the neighborhood, we liked the one next door best.
Access : we asked the B&B to reserve a taxi, were met at the airport and brought to the door in a comfy Merc for €40. To go back we took a Terravision bus from Termini station (15 min walk) at €6 pp.
