A hotel with a difference. In a busy side street off a main thoroughfare, with windows open there was some noise, but nothing terrible.
Arriving, from the street into a quite austere hallway (this is a shared occupancy building), get the (slow) lift to floor 5 reception area where you will get a warm welcome and lots of help and advice.
The rooms are hard edged modern – literally – watch for knocking your shins on bed edges and other sharp corners.
Really excellent fittings, especially the bathroom.
Our room - the whole wall swung open to reveal the washing/showering/toilet area, this has to remain open to use the wash-basin, so you will need the kind of intimacy with your partner that allows for washing in the same area as you will likely be.
Breakfast taken in Cotto restaurant next door but one. Usual continental, good.
Buses (40 and 64) run on main street, 100 yards away, going to Vatican and near to several other sites as long as you don’t mind a walk . Metro 2 minute walk. Termini 10 minutes.
Little shop 25 yards away for essentials – milk in our case, the two little cartons provided by hotel is useless. Café/ sandwich bar next door – good for snacks, a beer etc. Lots of others nearby.

P.S. I have done short reviews of three restaurants within a 5 minute walk, if you’re interested they are the hotel’s own Cotto; the Alessio, quite highly regarded on TA, and the Il Borocco, average rated on TA but we had the best dining experience of the three.
