We stayed at this hotel for two nights in a double room which cost a very reasonable £35 a night. The rooms are of a good size and very clean, hotel staff are friendly but only speak a little English. Breakfast is a continental breakfast consisting of Croissants and Jam with a choice of hot drinks, this was acceptable but nothing exceptional.
Although the hotel itself is very nice and has attractive grounds where guests can sit and chat, drink etc. the local area is largely residential and as such has very few shops and restaurants although there are a supermarket and a fairly nice restaurant within 10 minutes walk.
If you are looking for more lively surroundings, the best option is to take the public transport into the centre of Rome. For 1 Euro each you can purchase a 75 minute travel card from the tobacconist which is 5 minutes walk down the road after turning right out of the hotel gate.
This allows you to take bus 765 from the stop opposite the toy shop (another minute or two past the tobacconist) to the Arca di travertino tube station. From here you can catch a Metro (underground) to the main train station Rome Termini which has transport to all other areas of rome e.g. Colosseum, vatican etc. The bus ticket will also work on the Metro and in theory allows you to travel the whole of Rome for 1 euro. However, although you will never have your ticket checked on the buses, the gates in the Metro station will reject it after the 75 minutes have expired.
The Metro service is very punctual and frequent however a word of warning, during certain times the metros can be extremelly overcrowded with no room to even move your arms. This was particularly evident between Rome Termin and the colosseo (Colosseum) station. However don't let this put you off since the sights in Rome are amazing and well worth travelling to see.
