The B&B is owned and run by a couple, Viviana and Miguel. They commenced business in Dec 03 in a refurbished 200 year old building ( top floor with a elevator as big as a phone booth! ) that has been in the family for four generations. They are extremely gracious and helpful hosts and serve breakfast on a terrace overlooking a courtyard and Roman roofs. They speak English, Italian, Spanish and French. The location is fantastic just a few hundred meters from the Spanish Steps, in the heart of the exclusive shopping district yet is very, very quiet.  The furnishings and fittings are first class.  They have 2 suites, one sleeps 4, a queen size bedroom with a sofa bed in the sitting room and the other sleeps 2.  The suites are spacious with very high ceilings and French doors that look out over the courtyard (also air con).  Prices vary with season and suite.
