Don't be put off by first impressions. This little place was clean, friendly, cheap and well located.
We were greeted by a man called Andrea who spoke good English, immediately sat us down and went over a map of Rome with us, explained the transport system and recommended places to eat (although we were off season and they were all closed!!). He lived there and said we could knock his door any time.
The rooms were small but adequate for a cheap hotel. Bathroom was clean and relatively spacious.
2 mins walk from the Termini station, where most of coach transfers from ciampino airport drop off and has a tube and bus station, 5 mins from bars, 10mins from shopping, and within walking distance of all the sights - although sometimes a long walk - the Vatican prob about 40 mins, so catch a bus...
However, I must concede it is a funny set up. It seems it is an flat in a large building that has been converted into a 5 or 6 bedroom B&B, it feels a little like student digs when you turn up. Our first reaction was to find somewhere else to stay as it didnt appear to be legit, but we're glad we stayed - we didnt have any problems when staying and wouldnt have found somewhere so central for the price we paid on laterooms. Also there was no problem in leaving our bags there all day after checking out at lunchtime but with a late flight.
Breakfast was awful. A vacuum packed bread roll.
