Roman Rooms was one of the cheaper B&Bs that I found in Rome (only 105 euro/night). It's really a large apartment that's been converted into a B&B. It's about a 15-minute walk to the Colisseum and Forum. There's also a Metro stop directly in front and the 64 bus goes by there. It's also only a 6-7 block walk from Roma Termini train station. Aside from that, there isn't much that you'd want to do in that neighborhood.
The room was spacious and clean. The hardwood floors are old and creaky so you'll know exactly when your fellow guests are coming and going. I think there are about 3 rooms total. The place is run by a family who are happy to sit down with a map of the city and run through the sites with you like a personal tour guide. Super nice and very personal attention to detail. They also have a refrigerator stocked with juices and yogurts that you can help yourself to at any time. Their "towels" however are more like tablecloths (you'll see what I mean if you go there) and the breakfast is awful. DO NOT make coffee. They don't clean out the coffee pot so there's mold growing in there. Also, ladies, you may want to bring your own blow dryer there as the one in the bathroom is fairly useless.
If I go back to Rome, I'd rather stay in the Spanish Steps or Campo del Fiori area as it's more central to the areas where you'd want to spend most of your time in that city. However, I thought Roman Rooms was a fairly reasonable value for the incredibly low price.
