My review is really ironic in that my excellent experience comes because I am not booking the Saxa Rubra bed and breakfast...thanks to TA.

I found this site today doing a Google search for my son's honeymoon in March in Rome...rooms looked wonderful but I was not sure if there were ensuite baths--so I emailed to check that and availability and price....

got prompt reply at such a resonable rate I should have know right away it was too good to be true--at least for Rome, one of the most expensive towns for rooms around...

Just happened to think to check TA for reviews because I had not seen anything about this place while reading trip reports for the past few months...
Sure enough--there they were---saving my bacon and my son's honeymoon...
thanks guys...sorry you had to go through that disappointment but appreciate the postings..

Being away we wanted nothing more than to have an authentic and intimate setting for Christmas. After doing a ton of research we decided Saxa Rubra was the perfect place for "a romantic refuge". Once we arrived we then realized that not everything seems to be as it actually appears...this place was a true disappointment. The pictures online were nothing like the reality. A cold barren house with no hot water, no noise insulation and no heat. Had we not brought our own mini Christmas tree there would have been no resemblance of holiday decor. Expecting our host "Sibilla" to greet us and at least show some presence at some point during our 3 day stay was maybe too high of an expectation. Instead we were minorally greeted by a gentleman who spoke nor English nor Italian, but French...how appropriate! The feast we asked for and were promised (aka "typical italian dinner" beautifully displayed on their site) did not exist unless you went downstairs to the neighboring restaurant . When trying to inquire about it with our french greeter he knew nothing of the sort and could only ask for cash payment and could ironically direct us to the nearest bank. We easily missed breakfast due to the fact that there was no alarm clock to wake us, but then again when we did make breakfast the next day we didn't miss much. One Egg Omelet with two slices of salami ,rice crispies, hard bimbo bread and pre packaged stale sweet rolls. To quote their brochure: "they come, leave and [i'm not quite sure who] return[s] taking with them unforgettable memories of their stay". "Unforgettable" yes.

This was the worst experience I have had travelling. I requested 2 double en-suite rooms and recieved 2 rooms which shared a bathroom with another room. The rooms themselves where built in the attic so you could not stand up right. The bathroom was also in the attic and again you could not stand straight. The bath also did not have a plug as they say someone flooded the bathroom once. The host was very unhelpful, would not order a taxi when requested and told us lie after lie. After spending one night we decieded to cut our losses and found another hotel even thought we had paid for this one. Stay far away from this B&B

The hotel is located in the elbow of a busy intersection, so be prepared to risk death crossing the street. Also the neighborhood activity seemed to involve groups of guys drinking beer and standing next to their cars. It felt mildly threatening, but that's probably just my American paranoia kicking in.
Our room was in the attic. It had slanted walls upon which I smashed my head regularly. The room was clean and our hostess was very polite. The breakfast was quite good. I could hear word-for-word the conversation in the room below us. In my case, the downstairs neighbors were well behaved, but I could see noise level becoming an annoyance.
Some of the neighboring restaurants were especially good and inexpensive.

The location of Saxa Rubra was decent, about a 20 minute train ride to the city. The hostess was very pleasant and nice, the accomodations aestheticly speaking were really charming and worth the price, HOWEVER, it was probably the worst nights sleep that we got while in Europe. Everything is wood, we heard every single creak and footstep and conversation from the guests staying above us, it was truly awful. We also reserved and were promised a private bathroom but it was across the other side of the dining room and accessible to everyone.
As beautiful as it was, we would never stay there again.
