My wife and I (in our fifties) just returned from Italy and spent 5 nights at Via Veio 52. The B&B is on the 4th floor of a typical Rome apartment building, and has only a few rooms. We like very much the neighborhood. It is only a block from the metro, and then 4 or 5 stops take you to the center of Rome, but it's far enough out to have more of a typical (non-touristy) neighborhood feel. Our first room was small, at the back of the building, with a large window, and then we moved to a larger room at the front of the building, also with a large window. We slept at night with the windows partly open with no problems. There is of course some street noise but you are high enough up that it's not annoying, and the street itself is a short, narrow side street without much traffic. Close by are a bank, restaurants, Internet cafe, a market, drug store, etc.
The rooms are very clean and basic, with comfortable (for us) beds. The kitchen is small and breakfast is simply self-service, with cereal, yogurt, or toast with juice, and access to a refrigerator, toaster, sink, etc. There is coffee, or head out on the street and in 5 minutes you can take your cappucino at a lively bar / shop.
We walked in the neighborhood several evenings and the area seems quite safe.
We were very happy here and I must express appreciation for the exceptional kindness of the owner, Bernardo. We would be pleased to stay there again, and Rome is wonderful.
