We stayed at this place having had it recommended to us, and it was also appealing for a short break to Rome as the rates were very cheap compared to a hotel.
We found it ideal for what we needed which was basically a base from which we could do the tourism thing in Rome. The location is very good, it is at most a 10 minute walk to the Vatican, and maybe a 30-40 minute walk from the furthest point of interest which was the Colosseum. That said, if you're not into walking the metro is a 5 minute walk away and it's very easy to navigate there.
As for the b&b itself the staff are very helpful and friendly, giving lots of advice on where to go and how to get there. They bring breakfast to the room (basic contiental effort) in the morning at the time you specify. I would recommend getting the airport transfer they offer to arrange for you, takes the worry and hassle out of finding the place and delivers you straight to the door.
Clearly given the rate this is not going to be the lap of luxury or anything, so don't be expecting too much, but I found the rooms reasonably clean, a decent size and functional. I wasn't bothered by the road noise and the air conditioning seemed pretty good (though it was only February). It's true some aspects of it are a little dated and the bed is quite hard.
Overall I was pleased we stayed here and would use it again. It's very good value for money, comfortable and a convenient place from which to explore the city.
