We really enjoyed our stay at the Relais Banchi Vecchi.
We came on the train and took a taxi to RBV. The taxi driver wasn't 100% sure where it was but one call one the phone to his headquaters and away we went.
I must admit that I was a little uncertain when we dropped off in the small side street/alleyway -- which is where the entrance is but that all evaporated when I entered the B and B.
We were quite warmly greated and shown to a room on the 2nd floor. They have a lift here and we used it to transport the bags up the stairs.
The room was quite large and had a refrigerator which we made use of. The bathroom was impressive -- lots of marble. (However like a lot of traveling in Italy -- some days there was more hot water than others. )
Breakfast was good/simple -- bread/rolls/butter/jelly. The coffee smelled great -- but not being a coffee drinker, I can't really tell you if was any good.
We didn't encounter much noise from the outside/neighbors except when the football/soccer game was on and we could tell when a goal was scored from all the celebrating.
There wasn't much of a view out the windows but the bed was very comfortable. It was very easy to relax here after lot of walking around in Rome
And we did walk everywhere! We were pretty centrally located so we walked to the Vatican, the Trevi fountain, the Piazza Navona, Trastevere (etc).
We came back later in the evening after dark and always felt safe walking to RBV.
I would recommend this location to anyone.
