The hotel is around 10-15 minutes walk from the Termini station. Good if you are travelling in the summer morning as the weather is cool and the walking was not that difficult even with huge luggages. Watch out if you arrive in the afternoon like I did, as the 15 minutes walk seemed forever!
The hotel is located in a building with lift but you have to walk a few steps (like 10) to reach the lift. The owner is nice and very helpful in giving instructions around the city. There is a super cheap supermarket and local bakery and eateries nearby. It's also close to pizza and ice-cream places rated top at tripadvisor!
However if you are a metro person, don't stay at this hotel as it's far away from the metro. There is a bus stop around the corner of the block tho which takes you to most places within half an hour. Walking to the spanish steps takes 20-25 minutes (slightly uphill and downhill).
The room itself has an en-suite bathroom with shower and a fridge (a huge plus especially it's so hot and dry in the summer). The bed is ok and the blanket is a bit on the thin side. That matches with the air-con which isn't very strong, but it's ok as the summer is chilly at night and you can still sleep well without the air-con.
Overall an excellent value hotel. Totally satisfied with the EUR58 per night I paid. Would definitely stay at this hotel again when I come back!
