Hotel Aventino was recommended by a business colleague and I saw both business and tourist types during my stay. It's a great choice if you're not interested in staying smack in the middle of Rome city center, among tourist sites and traffic, but it's still just a 15 minute walk from the Forum and Colosseum. The Aventine Hills neighborhood is perfect for relaxing after a long day of touring. The hotel is better than a B&B yet not quite a full-serve hotel. It has great value, and more so if you book in advance. Staff are friendly, willing to help, and speak English. Our room consists of painted mosaics and old European decor both in the bedroom and bathroom. Our bathroom had a whirlpool bathtub (which I didn't try), but the water faucet for the bath was difficult to use. The shower was hot and nice but not fully enclosed, so water gets on the bathroom floor and toilet. The bathroom door also stuck when opening and I had to push the door forcefully to get it open all the way. These are small inconveniences that didn't bother me but could be a problem for other travelers. Breakfast is continental, typical Italian, which includes warm croissants, assorted other pastries, cold meats, and yogurts, as well as coffee/tea, made to order. Be warned: wifi in the lobby only and A/C system in room can be loud if you're a light sleeper. I would stay here again for the price and neighborhood. However, see my review for this hotel chain's other hotel, Hotel Villa San Pio, which I prefer but is slightly pricier.
