This is an excellent place to stay. More like a serviced apartment than a conventional B&B, but spacious, spotlessly clean, comfortable, and a super location 200m from the Colosseum. Aldo and Gioia are welcoming hosts who serve a breakfast of fresh croissants, pastries, coffee etc and give invaluable advice on where to eat locally away from the tourist traps. The complimentary bottle of Sicilian red more than compensated for the lack of toiletries. Highly recommended and an excellent alternative to overpriced hotels and cramped B&Bs.
