I was in Rome for a study trip and stayed at this hotel with my classmates for almost a week. I was staying in a room for 4 persons. It was small but clean and with own bathroom. Window was facing the road, which made the room a little noisy - if you are a light sleeper, take ear plugs with you.
Hotel is located in apartment building, on 6th and 7th floors (reception on 7th floor). It can be a little hard to find at first as there aren't any big signs in front of the main entrance. Lift in the building is very old and only 2-3 persons can get in at same time. As we were a very big group, we had some problems getting our luggage upstairs!
Breakfast was served in rooms, which was a little strange in my opinion - but as the hotel is located in an apartment building with very limited space, they don't have separate dining hall or such. Breakfast wasn't very special so we ended up having a coffee and croissants on a café near by almost every morning.
Staff was very friendly and helpful and almost all of them spoke english very well.
For the price we payed I guess this is what you get in Rome, and the hotel itself was OK, but I have to say that the location is not so good - quite far from all the sights (30 min bus ride to Colosseum) and the area didn't feel very safe. One of my classmates got almost cellphone stolen in front of the entrance and during bright day light! A lot of creepy, weird people hang around in the neighbourhood, probably selling drugs and waiting for innocent victims. I have to say that I hardly ever have been afraid when traveling somewhere and walking back to the hotel at night but this place really gave me the creeps. I wouldn't recommend to anyone walking around at night alone, especially women, in the neighbourhood the hotel is located.
Even though the hotel is located a little far from everything, trams and buses run right front of it - 14 and 5 to Termini (10-15min) and bus 81 to Colosseum (30 to 45 min, depending on traffic). If you decide to stay in the area, there is Via Del Pigneto quite close by (couple of min walk from the hotel) with restaurants and bars. A lot of creepy people hang around there too though so keep your friends safe and drinks close.
