My wife and I stayed here at the beginning of October 2014. The B&B is very close to the Vatican, slightly further to some of the main sights in Rome - however, there is a metro station nearby that we used without any difficulty, or a pleasant 20 minute walk, crossing over the Tiber, will take you into the centre. There are shops and restaurants nearby (La Griglietta on Via Germanico and the bread shop on the corner of Scipioni and Via Fabio Massimo were particularly good), and we felt fine walking around the neighbourhood at night.
The room we were in was comfortable and clean, with a view of the dome of the Basilica. There was no noise from neighbours. Breakfast was fine. We mainly saw Federica, who was very helpful in arranging a pick up from the airport, suggesting restaurants etc. Thanks also to her two colleagues for looking after us when we arrived and at breakfast. No problems finding our way there, or getting in, and there was someone waiting to meet us.
If you are looking for somewhere to stay near the Vatican, or would just prefer to base yourself somewhere a bit quieter and less touristy, I would recommend this B&B.
