This hotel is located quite close to the Coliseum and Forum; also close to metro stations.
We stayed at one of the apartments that are part of the hotel, even though it is in a separate building, a bit uphill from the main hotel.
The apartment itself was quite spacious, and suited our needs (three adults and one baby; they provided the cot, with no fuss). The apartment has a nice view of the cobbled-stone alley below, and it has a spacious bathroom and a small dining table / kitchenette.
What I do have to say is that the decor was in need of an upgrade; we felt like we were stuck in a 70's movie set, but this was no big deal for us.
I recall that some of the appliances didn't work properly, but all we needed was to boil some water, and keep things in the fridge - and that we were able to do.
We loved the neighbourhood where this hotel is located; the streets away from the main street leading to the Forum had some lovely little fruit stores, cafes, and boutiques.
The service from Reception was good, even though we had a bit of a misunderstanding with a bill - it was quickly sorted. They recommended we take a taxi back to airport, instead of the hassle of taking the metro and train back.
I did not get to try the complimentary breakfast because I had to stay in the room breastfeeding my child, so my husband and sister nicked a croissant and yogurt for me. They told me the breakfast room was nice, but the breakfast itself was basic (as to be expected, really).
Anyway, well recommended! I would definitely stay here again!
(We travelled in April 2011, so my review might be a bit old, but I had wanted to recommend this hotel, and never really got around to it, until now; sorry!)
