Stayed here for 4 days in May of this year. The location was good, and relatively quiet, although there are many B&B's in the building so at times a lot of noise echoing up the stair wells. The older lady who dealt with us on arrival was friendly and approachable, despite the language barrier, however the other younger female staff member was a little less welcoming. The main door had a entry system, although it was left open at times, and there are quite a few "characters" that hang around outside in the street.
We had asked (& had it confirmed) when booking for an en-suite room, but the bathroom was at the end of the hall, and was used by other guests, even though we were told it was for our use only. The room itself was ok, again not the most secure door but you would hope no-one would force entry as the B&B front door was quite well locked. A security light in the hall was annoying as it shone into the bedroom, but after a days sightseeing we were tired, so it was easy to get back to sleep. Also there was no safety deposit box in the room as advertised.
Breakfast was basic, the coffee lovely though. We were able to leave our bags in the hall until we caught the train later which saved having to carry them round the city.
If you are only paying a few euros a night then its good value for money as a base, but i suspect there are better options available.
Rome was fab, and lots of choice for cheap food & drink, and so much to see, i'd definately go back, just not to the Casa Serafina.
