After much research we settled on the Colosseum B&B, booked through Venere.com, and were not disappointed. The residence is comfortable and quiet but VERY accessible to the central activity of Rome.
Prior to our arrival we were contacted by Daniela and Valter via email to state our expected arrival time. They were quick to offer assistance with transportation from the airport to their residence. Upon our arrival in Rome a gentleman met us as expected and our transfer couldn't have gone any smoother. Once we arrived at the B&B we found Valter awaiting our arrival. Due to our arrival time our rooms were not yet available but we were still checked in our bags were able to be placed in the kitchen area.
Unfortunately we had some communication challenges as we do not speak Italian and Valter does not speak English. However, with the help of an app on his tablet/iPad we were able to communicate easily. He offered to let us use their computer to quickly send a "we arrived!" email to relatives, gave us a key, and we were out exploring Rome in no time.
When we arrived back to the B&B that evening our bags were placed in our room already. The room was very clean and nice. The bathroom was up-to-date and also provided a mounted hairdryer. There was a TV available but we didn't watch as we had no time. Free Wi-fi was also available through a secure network. Every so often we would lose the signal but I had read this may occur in the older buildings. All we had to do was move to a new location in the room and we would reconnect. Our room was cleaned daily.
For breakfast, we received vouchers for juice and pastries for a location around the corner. Once again we had a slight issue with communication, as the workers spoke very little English, but we were able to collect our breakfast and walk 2 blocks to eat our breakfast just outside the Colosseum .
Although we were so close to the activity of the Colosseum and so many surrounding restaurants the location of the bed and breakfast was peaceful.
We would highly recommend this bed and breakfast.
