If you want to stay in an American style hotel, do so. If you want to experience and share a bit of life with Romans, stay here. This B&B is a 3-bedroom flat with the master bedroom and bath walled off for your "suite". You are the only guests. It is very private, spacious, and this was the BEST bathroom we experienced in Italy - size, amenities, water pressure and temp. (We stayed in budget hotels and small places like this.) Trust me, that is important!
We stayed here several nights in September/October 2013. Much appreciated Luciana's suggestion to book a ride with their friend Marco from the airport. After a long trip in coach, it was great to walk out of baggage, be met by someone, driven to B&B, where Bruno met us at the curb. All for the same price as public transit (train+ cab) and without the hassle. Even better, we were welcomed with a cold glass of wine and glass of water! And friendliness, and directions, and any help we wanted. Wifi provided. A fantastic italian-style breakfast each day. A key so you can come and go at your leisure. We loved staying here and would do so again, and have recommended it to others.
