2/10 Poor

Positives: The place was a decent size, and the landlord gave us (we paid him) a ride to the airport. Negatives: second storey up, but terrible neighbouhood. People (probably on drugs) were screaming loudly all night, not allowing us to sleep prior to leaving the country the following day. In the shower, we found a couple of hairs, and the soap supplied for the shower was cheap DISH soap. The family living upstairs had a child that was thumping uncontrollably while we tried to sleep. One of the night table lamps was broken and could not be used. The breakfast was old packaged bread stuff...not tasty at all. We would not stay there again!

An eccentric value
The place was eccentric and a wonderful value. However, the proprietor is not on site, so be sure to be as specific as possible about your arrival time.

Perfect for the right person(s).
The place was wonderful value, a bit eccentric, but perfect for the right person(s). However, the proprietor is not on site, so it is extremely important that you be as specific as possible when you are asked for your arrival time. His English is not good, but he can call his daughter if necessary.

Low expectations
It was a B&B that served plastic wrapped biscuits and coffee machine coffee for its "breakfast". the room is as basic as it gets. Worth it for a night before you leave Rome and close to the airport but thats about it. Have low expectations. This place was $60 bucks a night at best, not the $83 (dollars) plus 3.5 Euro a night per person per night Rome fee expected on check in.

4/10 Fair

Not a hotel, it is a B&B, 24 hour barking dog
Americans without phone service, had to have a neighbor call the owner who then came and let us in the property.. Then he tried to make me pay for the room again, claiming he had not been paid by Expedia. Building next to us had two big dogs, one german shepherd who barked 24-7. The water for the shower was luke warm and no plug for the bathtub. Has a elevator lift that will fit one normal sized person, unit located on the second floor. Free parking was street parking when I returned at 9pm I had to park two blocks away.

8/10 Very good

Just for a place to sleep is great. The place is really close to the beach which is really beautiful. The person in charge of the place is so nice amd sweet anything you wanted he would give, but he only knew italian so a little language barrier, but had a daughter who spoke to us through the phone in english. So overall it was great.

2/10 Poor

not as expected
We got this hotel because we read reviews saying it was close to the airport which is what we needed for an early morning flight. The only catch here is that it takes multiple modes of transportation to get there or a 40 Euro taxi. We got to the "hotel" that had a sign for a B&B. Not knowing Italian we got our cab driver to phone the number. Turns out the address given was the wrong one so we haul our bags back into the taxi and drive a bit more. Both areas are run down, graffiti everywhere and just not great area (especially for 2 young women which we were!). The owner was there but didn't really know much English but we got by and he was very friendly. He said taxi's are usually 45 euro to get there from Rome. He then said he'd get his daughter to drive us the next morning for 30 euro. We ended up doing it because we didn't know how to get a taxi at that hour or know the actual address. On a positive the rooms were clean although no air conditioning. Breakfast was pre packaged stuff. On a whole would never go here again because of location and how much it costs to take a taxi for a 10 minute drive. Save your money and stay in Rome!

Save your money
We were taken to another B & B, which was in an undesirable part of the area... Felt unsafe.. Room was near the front door and staff and other guests were extremely loud and inconsiderate of the other guests.
