This nice little (only three rooms) B&B is located in a very nice area with many cafes and restaurants, and it's not far from both Villa Borghese and the city center. The bus is also near by, so the location is very good. Right across the street from the hotel there is a cafe called Tribeca, they have a basic but good food and some nice house wine.
The B&B itself is in a residential building, so it was a little difficult to find it - just look for "L'Arca" under one of the intercomm buttons near the entrance.
Rooms - very spacious with high ceilings, clean and comfortable. All three rooms are located along a corridor, at the end of which there are three bathrooms and a small kitchen. The bathrooms are small and the water pressure was not very good when we stayed there. Also it's a bit awkward, since to get into two of the bathrooms you have to walk through the kitchen. So that was the only thing that bothered us during our stay.
The hosts are wonderful and speak very good English, as you can understand from many reviews that mention them, both are very nice and will tell you everything you need to know about the city and the transportation.
