Close to everywhere

We spent 4 days in Rome in Flora B&B, actually its name isn't Flora now, it's Pomezia so we were a little confused when looking for a hotel, the number is still correct though - 13. Staff was very friendly, speaking English quite well. There is no lift there. Our room (3rd floor) was clean and tidy. Nothing to complain about. There was a small telly with 5 channels - dunno what for. One big disadvantage was that WiFi didn't work there. Hotel staff told us that WiFi worked only on ground floor, so we could often see people with their laptops or mobiles sitting in a breakfast room using internet. Speaking about breakfast, it was better that we were told it would be. Good range of drinks - cofee, tea, milk, water, juice; croissants, bread, cereals, musli, jams, honey, perfect for a hot, roman morning.
Now location! During 4 days there we used public transport twice - to get to hotel from Tube station and when leaving. 3 minutes from Campo di Fiori, 5 minutes from Piaza Navona and Pantheon, 20 minutes to Vatican or Spanish Steps, 15 minutes to Colosseo. There is plenty of restaurants around yet our room was very quiet.
Overall, great location, good price, substantial b-fast are hotel's advantages.
The only minus was not working WiFi - we didn't mean to spend all day browsing internet, yet it'd be helpful to check weather, buy tickets online, etc.
