We had a wonderful stay at the B&B Le Sorelle Lumiere. We spent one night in Rome on each end of our Italy trip and had such a good experience the first night that we were excited to come back for our last night in Italy. The B&B is tiny (4 rooms) and run by 2 sisters. Simona, one of the sisters, contacted me a few days before each of our stays to find out our arrival time for check-in and make sure we didn't need her to arrange for a private shuttle to pick us up at the airport. She was extremely pleasant to work with, punctual and helpful. The B&B has a fantastic location, just a few blocks from the Vatican and walking distance from all the major attractions. My husband and I easily walked to the Piazza Navona area as well as the Colosseum (good 30 min walk minimum, but great way to see Rome!). Trastevere was a 6 euro cab ride away (12 euro after 10pm). We shuttled in from the airport at the beginning of the trip, opting for the 8 euro SITbus (http://www.sitbusshuttle.com/en/fiumicino/) shuttle which has a stop near the Vatican. I would cab it from the shuttle stop to the B&B because dragging suitcases on the cobblestone streets and fighting through Vatican City tourists was a little exhausting. Still, this option is much more affordable than the 50 euro private shuttle ride from the airport to the B&B. The rooms were super clean, quiet and decorated each one in the spirit of a different film director. Internet was free and fast. Plenty of hot water in the shower and great water pressure. Breakfast was simple, but good and Simona even showed me how to work the coffee machine before our super early (before the start of breakfast) departure. The sisters are not there at night, but guests have access to the microwave and coffee maker. This is a great place to stay if you are independent and looking for a safe, clean and cute place to come home to after long days touring beautiful Rome.
