We have just returned from a stay here, we had a wonderful time. The b&b is a converted apartment in a really nice building, with three bedrooms and a kitchen, and is spotlessly clean and recently decorated with high quality modern decor and fittings. Our room was lovely, and the king size bed/pillows are SO comfortable!
The location is good, it is in a quiet area, but only 5-10 minutes walk down the long road to the Colosseum, or if you walk in the opposite direction there is a Metro station just beyond the city wall - this is the line which takes you to the Spanish steps and the Vatican, and we found it preferable to the busy Colosseo station which is on a different line.
The breakfast is adequate - there are croissants and cakes and coffee pods for the machine (which makes really good coffee), and juices and yoghurts in the fridge. This was always replenished the night before, so it didn't matter if you needed to be up at 6am for a flight (as we did), you can still have a quick coffee and croissant. Likewise if you want to sleep in til noon, there are no time restrictions like in a hotel. The only thing lacking is a kettle to make cups of tea, but it didn't bother us too much as the coffee was delicious.
Alberta (the charming and sweet mother of the owner) was so hospitable when we arrived, she gave us a map of the city and pointed out lots of place too see, restaurants, bus numbers etc. We took her up on many of the recommendations for the restaurants and they were all great - especially Luzzi on the same road as the B&B (cheap and always packed with locals and some tourists, but the food is great), and Obika which is a mozzarella bar on Campo Dei Fiori - if you like mozzarella you have to try their tasting platter!
I would definitely recommend staying here and would return if we visit Rome again.
Two tips on Rome in general - if you want to visit the Vatican museums/Sistine Chapel, book online in advance to avoid queueing for hours; and get your Colosseum tickets from the Roman Forum further down the road on the left - again avoiding the massive queues.The ticket is 12Euro and gets you into the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine, and lasts for two days - it is the same whichever venue you purchase it from.
