My husband and I stayed at B&B Maggiore in May for two nights. I had booked directly on their website. I had also re-confirmed my booking and informed them of my arrival time for check in, to which i did not get a reply until i put in three mails. All they said was the booking was confirmed. Hence i safely assumed that i could check in at the time i mentioned. We were to arrive at the B&B by 11 a.m. which was definitely in their published office hours. But once we reached the place we were in for a shock as the attendant there, who could barely speak English informed us that check in would happen only by 2 p.m. This is not what you want to hear when you are tired after a 10 hour overnight flight!! Also all this, after your credit card has been charged the full amount 5 days before your arrival without any notification whatsoever.
However after much requesting he gave us a room for some time to freshen up.
We managed to spend a few hours in the city and got back at 2 pm. This time, there was another guy who could speak better English. He was quite helpful. He showed us to our room which was in another building about 5 minutes away. The room was extremely small with barely any space to move around. It was a basic room, however it was very clean. Since we were in a hurry to catch up for our Colosseum tour, he said he would get our luggage transferred to this place from the main building. That was helpful.
So all in all this place felt short of expectations, as it had been suggested to me by a friend who had stayed here earlier. The only positive point is the location.
One more thing: though their published rate includes all taxes, you will be made to pay some city tax of 2 euros per person per night at the time of check in. Also note: though it is a B&B they do not serve breakfast!!
