We stayed one night in Rome at this hotel in October and I cannot really say anything wrong about it.
Hotel Ranieri is located just a bit outside of the hustle and bustle of the city but you can easily walk to the historical places, which was what we did. The room we were assigned to was overlooking the main road. However, at night, we did not have much problems with noise. We were out the whole day so we can't say too much about the noise during the day. Any how, we kept the windows closed so that helped.
Getting around the city from the hotel is not that bad. We took a cab from the hotel to the Vatican City and it cost us about 10 Euros. If you choose to take public transport, the nearest metro station is about 15 minutes away by foot. There are also buses that ply the road in front of the hotel. The receptionist will help you out with this.
The room we stayed in was big. There was enough room for our luggage and we did not face problems of bumping into each other.
One interesting thing about the hotel is its elevator. It is tiny and you might need to wait a bit for the elevator to arrive. Even then, you may need to wait for it to come by again if it is already occupied.
Breakfast is in the basement which has a pretty decent spread. Can't complain about it.
For people driving to the hotel, you can park outside the hotel to unload your luggage. Double park, it seems to be the norm here. Then, you can ask the receptionist to call a garage nearby to come park your car. When you check out, she will call the garage again and that is when you pay for the parking. If I remember correctly, it is about 25 Euros per day.
A reminder to foreigners who are coming to Rome. The hotels need your passport to check you in. It is the law. We did not have ours because they were at my wife's apartment in Milan. Thankfully, we were able to find scanned pdf copies of our passports in our emails (thank goodness for cloud technology) otherwise, it would have been a long drive back to Milan!
