This was our first location we stayed during our 16 day tour of Italy.
We flew into Fiuimenco airport at about 4:30 pm and were met by a taxi driver after picking up our luggage . This had been helpfully arranged by the B and B owners a few days before we left Canada when they emailed us out of the blue to present the offer. The $50 euro cost was well worth it as we had flown all night ( left Canada at 1:00 am ) and were likely in no mood to try to navigated the rail and subway system.
The B and B itself contains a total of 3 rooms . We were placed in one room for the first night and then switched to a second room for the last 3 nights of our stay due to a repair required in the first room.
Both could be described as adequate. The beds were large enough and comfortable. The storage was acceptable ( we generally lived out of our suitcases anyway ) with smallish bathrooms especially in the 1st room. A safe is also included in the armoir and comes in handy for excess cash and passport storage. Generally the rooms were clean.
The biggest advantage this B and B has over other places we looked at , is location. Many of the most frequently visited sites in Rome are within an easy walk from the front door of this place including the Colosseum itself which is almost visible from the street outside this hotel. And access to the "M" metro or subway is a 10 minute walk on the opposite side of the ancient Colosseum .
Breakfast is supplied via a card given by hotel staff that requires you to walk down the street and just around the corner to a local cafe . Upon presentation of this card , they supply you with a pastry and toast with jam and butter / juice and cappichino. By comparison , this was perhaps the poorest of the breakfast we were supplied in the five hotels we stayed in while in Italy. Having said that , it was still adequate to get us going in the morning....it just took some getting used to the typical Italing breakfast of sugary pastries first thing in the morning. But "when in Rome , do as the Romans do "
Some other reviewers have described the location around this hotel as sketchy but we were not in the least bit worried about our safetty either in the day or the night when walking the surrounding streets. The neighbourhood didn't seem any better or worse than others we saw.
Overall : If location is more important to you than 5 star accomodations , then this place is for you. Generally we would recommend it as it easily fit our budget and our needs.
