We booked a long weekend to Rome and found almost every thing to be just right. The hotel wasn't as expensive as you'd think it to be for a major city stay. We paid approx. £300 for the 4 nights which isn't much more than you'd expect to pay for a local hotel in the U.K.
The rooms were maybe a tad on the small size but still room enough for 2 adults. We were on the 6th floor which we would highly recommend as there was a large balcony which we were able to sit out on to enjoy a few pre-evening drinks in the sun. Rooms have the usual, safe, air con, en-suite bathroom, wi-fi and sat t.v.
The bar didn't appear to be open but to be honest there is so much to do in Rome you wouldn't really have a drink at the bar when there is so much to see. This hotel is right by the Termini metro which me and the girlfriend had to admit is one of the best systems in Europe. We got a 3 day pass for the metro which was only €11 each. There is a line A and line B which take you to every part of the city you need to go to.
It is also set back from the station just enough so that you aren't disturbed by any noise in the evenings.
When doing the sight seeing things it's definitely worthing latching onto a tour as for a few extra quid you get info about the place you're seeing and more importantly skip the massive queue's that are at each major attraction. Be weary of the gypsie's at the main metro stations, they eye up everyone's bag's and rucksacks as they wait on the platforms then as you're about to board they work as a team, using the mum's with babies as a decoy to raid the bags. This didn't happen to us but we saw it happen.
All in all though it was an excellent trip and we are planning to go back soon.
