My wife and I stayed in Your Nest in Rome for five nights. It is located within converted apartments in a charming older condominium building. We were buzzed into the building, and there is a small elevator capable of squeezing in two thin people and one tall bag (but nothing more). The entry to the B&B is through a regular condominium unit entry door, and inside there are a series of rooms on a corridor and a "front desk" where the family who owns the inn services you. Their own home is situated behind closed doors near the desk, and one only has to knock in order to receive service. Our room was more spacious than we expected, and had not only a desk with a chair, but a nice wardrobe and a bathroom that was more than adequate. Everything is fairly new construction, and there are white oak hard wood floors throughout the rooms. The rooms are very clean, and there were extra pillows and blankets available. Large casement windows provided good light into the room. There is a small refrigerator, and the Wi-Fi signal was fairly fast and strong, and totally reliable. The breakfast is simple: toast and pastries, coffee, nuts and fruit, salami, prosciutto and cheese. There are also hard-boiled eggs. I could have skipped the breakfast, but it was sufficient. There is also a wonderful bar at street level just two doors down, which offers a wide variety of pastries in the morning, outdoor seating, coffee, etc. Your Nest in Rome has a rooftop deck on top of the condominium building, and it offers beautiful views as well as some nice potted plantings. It's a large area, and I felt no hesitation on a sunny afternoon to go up there and take a nap in a sunny corner. The location is really excellent, within one block of the main street in Trastevere, where the #8 tram runs, taking you to Trastevere Station. The inn is also located two blocks or so from the main square in Trastevere, and many good restaurants are nearby. There are also several trendy clothing shops, an adorable green grocer at the base of the building, and many places to grab coffee and sit outside. My wife criticizes me for always wanting to stay at the Four Seasons or the highest quality five-star hotels, and I negotiated with her to try Your Nest in Rome. I have now been forced to acknowledge that our stay was great, and had we tried to stay in a more "luxurious" hotel, we would have been located in a far, far less desirable location without the streetscape, charm, and liveliness that Your Nest in Rome and Trastevere offer. Your Nest in Rome is definitely not the Four Seasons. However, it's probably consistent with what we would consider a 3-star experience in the US, and offered comfortable, clean accommodations in the best possible location. The value was exceptional (approximately $200 per night) and we will definitely be back.
