Centrally located. Bargain by Rome standards. Clean with nice bathroom. Small place with just a few rooms. Breakfast across the street in a cafe.
Rather quiet despite the central location. €110/night Comfortable bed. Equivalent to a 2-3 star place but better! If we ever go back to Rome we probably will stay here.

Mediocre and noisy; booked four nights but left after one
We had booked four nights at Residenza San Pantaleo and left after one. The good points of this small inn include a very good location just 1 1/2 blocks south of Piazza Navona and we received friendly greetings and service when we arrived. It's very small with only five rooms, and we'd reserved a room facing into the interior courtyard to avoid the street noise from the busy piazza in front, which our room accomplished: we heard not a vespa screaming all night.
Unfortunately, the doors to the rooms are extremely thin and we were kept awake all night by the other guests. First by banging on the door and ringing bells at midnight (we were jetlagged and went to bed early). Then by screaming, and singing what sounded like bawdy German beer-hall tunes at 2:00 a.m. This continued for quite a while. I realize the management can't know what kind of noise guests are going to make (and living upstairs they were likely awakened, too), but better insulated doors would have helped. Since this party was staying several more nights we chose to depart rather than be sleepless in Rome for 4 nights straight. We had no problems from the manager about departing early. The room was basic and clean though there was some mildew in the bathroom. Beds were extremely firm (read: hard).
Would I stay here again? Doubtful, but for budget travelers who have no problems sleeping through noise, it'd be a good option due to the location and nice staff. They seem to want to make improvements so hopefully in the future it will include some upgrades.
