Five stars doesn't seem like enough

We heard from Rosa-Maria a couple of days before we were due to arrive. She arranged our transportation from the airport for us. She was waiting in the courtyard to greet us when we arrived. This is a very small B&B but the room was quite large. It was clean, comfortable, and quiet. The bed was extremely comfortable. Rosa asked us what time we would like breakfast and the next day, she served it to us in our room. It was delicious--cappuccino, fresh fruit (lots of variety), cereal, croissants and rolls, yogurt and fresh juice. It was wonderful! Rosa also helped us to navigate the city by public transportation which was a real money saver for us. As this B&B is literally a five minute walk to St. Peter's Square, she suggested we go on Wednesday morning to see the Pope. We did and that was an unexpected experience for us. There are several good restaurants and souvenir shops right around the corner. Rosa even gave us a cell phone so that we could call her if we had any problems during our Rome visit. When it was time to leave, she waited outside until our limo picked us up. We really felt like we were leaving friends, rather than just a place to stay. If we even find ourselves planning another trip to Rome, we wouldn't stay any place else but here.
