We stayed here for three days in June 2013.
The hotel is located about a 10 minute walk from the main train station, and quite close to all the major sites. It's a really good location, but unfortunately the hotel is located halfway down a short but very steep hill and I tripped as I approached the hotel and severely twisted my ankle.
The injury meant that I couldn't walk around Rome, so that negatively colored my opinion about the hotel...
After my fall, the hotel staff was very kind and offered me ice and bottles of water. The staff was generally very nice throughout the stay, and they even gave us an early breakfast when we had to check out at 4:30am on our departure date.
If I wasn't injured, then the location would have been perfect, in that it was walking distance (I'd estimate about 20-30 min) from most of the sites, yet quite affordable. Unfortunately with the bum ankle I had a lot of trouble getting around the city, and the hotel has no elevator so it was quite a task to climb the 2 flights up to my room.
The room itself was small but fine. They provided a crib for our baby (which took up all the spare walking space), and the room had a mini-fridge. The breakfast was basic but also fine. The hotel, and the city as a whole are not so handicapped friendly... (because of the steep and poorly paved hill you must descend to get to the hotel, and the lack of elevator, I wouldn't recommend the hotel to, say, my grandma - and I still can't quite understand how the Italian women are able to traverse the hill in their 5" heels).
But overall, I'd say that this hotel is a good value, and if I hadn't had a rough start to the stay with my fall, I would have enjoyed it more.
