We spent three nights at Absolute B&B in September, and agree with previous reviewers' praise for this B&B. It's hard to know what to add. The location is very convenient - about 15-20 minutes on foot from Termini; even easier by the 105 bus (get off at the stop after Piazza Vittorio Emanuele - a park which you will see on your right-hand side). We found bus/tram service just as easy as the Metro, at least to get to Termini.
The elevator was a real plus, particularly for people who tend to overpack....We had the room with an enclosed balcony and private bath - queen-sized bed with reading lamps, efficient ceiling fan, very clean and quiet, we'd book it again. It was handy being able to use the computer in the kitchen.
Don't miss a visit to the Gelateria Fassi across the street: it claims to be the oldest and largest ice-cream parlour in Italy. We went on a Saturday night - what an experience! Crowded with locals of all ages who know how good the choice, quality and size of servings are.
Our thanks once again to our hosts, especially to Alexis for his help in reuniting us with our lost luggage.
