My partner and I stayed in a double room for 3 nights. We travelled by train from the Fiumicino Airport to Termini and then changed to the Line A metro to Ottaviano. This was pretty easy to do and the B&B is not far from the station (10 min walk). The building itself was not hard to find but you need to enter into the courtyard from Via Cola Di Rienzo and then go up some stairs on the left side (before you reach the fountain at the centre of the gorgeous courtyard). Georgio at reception was extremely helpful and explained where all the major landmarks were and how long it took to walk the main roads. The B&B is very close to the Vatican and Castel Sant'Angelo (within 5 minutes). It is within a 20 min walk to other sites and we didn't have too many issues finding places with the map provided by Georgio. The B&B is located on a main shopping strip and there are plenty of restaurant and cafes nearby.
The room was a decent size, clean, and had everything that we needed. The shower in the bathroom, however, was pretty small (this was the same in other B&Bs around Italy) and also we had to put our shampoo and soap on the floor of the shower because it does not have any raised storage. This was not a problem for us but I can imagine that some people would find it a little annoying.
We didn't hear a lot of noise coming from other rooms or outside and slept pretty well.
WiFi worked well for us.
Breakfast (served inside our room) was basic but it was fine for us. The woman who cleaned the room and served breakfast was friendly.
Overall, we had a very pleasant stay at this accommodation.
