We booked this B & B for the location. We flew into Fiumicino Airport and from the train station took the Leonardo Express to Rome Termini. We bought tickets in the station for 14 euros each. From the Termini you can get the Line B Subway towards Laurentina and get off at the Cavour or Colosseo stop, however, with carry on luggage, we chose the easy 20 minute walk. The hotel is about 100m before the end of Via Cavour on the LHS just before Le Bar, the entrance is a big wooden door, there is a bus stop right outside. I had emailed our arrival time before leaving the UK but had no response so had to ring the owner when we arrived. He gave us the door code and once inside the receptionist told us if they had received my email they would have sent directions/instructions. Our triple room was basic but clean with a small bathroom and seating in the bay window overlooking the street. It was handy being able to help yourself in the kitchen throughout the day although the coffee was instant and breakfast items prepacked. The location here is key, we walked to the Colosseum in the morning, bought our tickets at the Forum entrance opposite the main entrance and bypassed the massive queues forming, managing to get some photos before the crowds. It is also within easy walking distance of many important sites although when we visited (July 2014) the Trevi was undergoing maintenance (scaffolding and screens over the facade and water drained). Good budget hotel in a great location.
