We stayed here in September with a KGB voucher, for the price we couldn't expect anymore, but I certainly wouldn't pay full price. This is basically a 2 bed flat which has been converted into a 3 bed unserviced b&b in a commercial building (dentist next door).
The front door is unmanageable unless you have a strong man with you to force it open. No one was there to meet us when we arrived, after about 5 phone calls the cleaner turned up to let us in, this was the last time we seen him in the 5 days we were there. The breakfast consisted of a soggy pan eu chocolat in a plastic bag and some sort of sponge cake, also in a plastic bag. There's a kitchen with a coffee machine which worked twice in the time we were there. One of the mornings we had no breakfast left out at all and nothing in the cupboards.
Our room was really big and the bed was comfy enough, however, the en suite shower room was so small that you had to sit on the toilet to have a shower. It also smelled of sewage if you closed the door or little vent window.
We were the only residents all week so we had a look in the other rooms, the big bath shown in the pictures is surrounded by black mould, both rooms although vacated were untidy and the beds remained unmade with the last residents sheets up until the day we left.
The area isn't the best, it takes about 10 mins to walk to the train station and at night the streets are quite dark. On our first day we stopped at a little cafe for a slice of pizza, however, the local drunks decided to have a fight right outside. They were hanging around all day drinking large bottles of peroni.
We walked into Trastevere one day which took about 20 minutes, well worth it as the square is lovely.
If you are visiting Rome however, be sure to book a night time segway tour....now that was an amazing experience!.
