Within 100 metres of the central transport hub of Rome. You can't get any more convenient than that
However, the Locanda is easy to miss, even when you've looked it up on Google street view. The entranceway is actually shared by 4 other micro hotels on the same building. The Locando is situated on the 4th piano (floor). Take the 3 person lift (seriously) if you have luggage or just need a rest from the heat. Turn right out of the elevator, you'll see the sign on the door.
The Hotel appears to be a family affair and the family live at the rear. We never saw them apart from a smile and a greeting in passing. Their fluffy black cat is always to be found on the registration desk and is very affectionate.
The rooms and toilet/shower areas are spotlessly clean. The family must have shares in a bleach company. The rooms have their own hand basin and soap dispensers. The shower and toilet facilities are shared, meaning you don't have your own private setup. The shower cubicles are small but manageable. The rooms are not air conditioned but good airflow is achieved with the electric fan provided.
Our room fronted the street and was a good size. Good circulation of air was achieved with the shutters open and, although the temperature was 28 degrees C outside, the hotel room never seemed oppressive.
There is a secondary set of aluminium shutters installed which will block out the street noise but in doing so you loose some of the atmosphere of Rome, including the random bell ringing one morning from a church somewhere nearby.
Good for a couple of nights for the adult traveller at a good rate at an excellent location.
