Booked through corporate web site. Cost is very good for Rome and location is not too bad - others have complained, but for me it was fine with plenty of places to eat nearby. Staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast (included) was adequate but without much variety (and starting at 07:00, not 08:30 any more), but the problem is the room. It was about average size, but very spartan - think 1970's university dorm. The air conditioning control was about the only form of decoration, and decoration was what it was - it certainly did not operate anything. Going there in early November, this was not a problem, but in the summer it would be unbearable. The usual toiletries (hair and body gel) came in a sachet barely sufficient to wash you armpits so if you intend to stay here I would recommend bringing your own or buying some locally. During the evening I seemed to have hot and hot running water - oddly in the morning the cold was OK so not too sure about the random plumbing arrangements. If you have a lot of luggage, beware of the lift - the egress are on mezzanine floors so you still have a flight of steps to go up or down. The bed was reasonable size for one (or newly weds), but the pillows were definitely on the firm side. Saying that, I did not have any problems sleeping so can't have been that bad.
OK, saying all that, the (free) wi-fi was excellent. If I was going on a cut-price business trip in the winter I would consider staying here again if I could not find anything else, but I would not recommend this hotel to anyone else.
