The Hotel Portamaggiore (or HPM as written on the door) is a gem! The moment you walk into the lobby, its warm and welcoming. It's not in central Rome but walkable to the Colosseum. Also as previously mentioned, the 571 bus stops right out front (be warned it doesn't return to the front door, but just down the street)... It's not free but no one ever checks tickets. All day tickets are currently 6 Euros.
The breakfast was plentiful (croissants, rolls, yogurt, cereal & cookies).
The room was large for Europe standards, small shower but large bathroom (shampoo, soap, bath gel & shower caps were provided and a hairdryer is included).
Alex at the front desk is absolutely wonderful. Very helpful and pleasant! Give him a raise!
They do not have a shuttle but they can call one and it was 14 Euros pp; which was better than the airport offered us.
