My wife and I recently travelled to Rome and stayed at this small, but friendly B&B. First off, even though it is a 2 bed apartment, it still provides everything you need from a reasonably priced city B&B. The breakfast is perfectly adequate for a city break as the picture shows. For example, most mornings we had cereal, coffee, juice, croissant, yoghurt, toast and/or a small range of pastry goods. It doesn't offer hot food - like a full English- but it's enough to get you going.
We were impressed by the vintage style lobby, staircase, lift area, as well as the rooftop which provides a lovely view of the city and is easily accessed.
We were greeted enthusiastically by Manuela, who even though doesn't speak great English, was the perfect host, ensuring the air conditioning worked and providing us with an iron when asked.
The room was decorated to a good standard and had nice finishing touches. We had the room with the en-suite which had a small, but powerful shower and everything else you need, including a hair dryer. The sound-proofing isn't the best, however, it didn't disturb us too much.
Most of all, one of the best selling points of this B&B is its location. We walked everywhere and it only took about 45 mins to get to the Ancient Rome area. The hotel is located only a 5 minute walk from St Peter's Basilica, square and the Vatican- we loved this! Furthermore, we found a reliable, tasty and reasonably priced restaurant round the back of hotel called, 'The Amalfi' which served good authentic food and a tasty house red. All in all, we'd definitely go back and recommend to others.
