We visited Rome during the w/o 5/14/13. This was an excellent value for the price paid and its an ideal location since your in the heart of the city. It's essential that you know that the Atlante Star hotel is the owner of this property (only ~50 feet away) where you check in and have your complementary breakfast. Our room was comfortable, clean with A/C and your own bathroom. There is no signage advising of La Maison Royale, so make sure that you've recorded "Atlante Star" in your notes upon your arrival.
This location is within a few blocks of the Vatican and makes it quite easy to visit several times. Suggestion - Vatican is open 7AM to 7PM; to minimize waiting on long lines, go early as you can to visit this site. For the many sites within the city, we walked along the river which was nearby and crossed over bridges as needed for a specific site. Unless you have a private guide for Rome, make sure you take a map of the city and map out your destination(s). Yes, there was a lot of walking, however, we found some beautiful churches, gardens, museums and nice places to have lunch (i.e. paninis, pizza, etc.). I strongly suggest that guests take a taxi (40 euros) from Fiumicino airport to this location since you'll save time and avoid the various connections if you go via public transportation.
Personally, we found that there was a lack of signs and assistance for visitors speaking any language besides Italian. Overall, my wife and I were tired at the end of this vacation, but we had a wonderful time touring the city, eating great food and of course, lots of gelato.
