We stayed there for a week and would certainly stay there again. The hotel was not the easiest to find on arriving at night at the Conca d'Oro metro station due to major ongoing construction work around the station to extend the B1 line further. It was easy and cheap (E1.50) to get into the centre of Rome by the metro (15 minutes to the Coliseum). Our room (107) was on the small side, with limited space for clothes storage. The room was quiet, looking onto a wall, clean with mainly Italian TV channels but with a number of foreign news channels, including the BBC. Breakfast was buffet style with fresh rolls, pastries, cakes scrambled egg, bacon, sausages, cold meats, cheese, cereals and yoghurt etc.
There are number of restaurants within easy walking distance of the hotel, however, information on nearby restaurants given by hotel staff was poor. The best restaurant in our view was the Hostaria Menenio Agrippa an approx 5-10 minute walk left out of the hotel. The trattoria was very popular with the locals and at weekends you would have to arrive early (7.30pm) or book to get a table. The trattoria was slightly cheaper than the Taverna dei Brigante mentioned in other reviews eg. a litre of the house wine was 5 euros compared to 7 at the "Briganti". We felt the area around the hotel to be safe and had no qualms walking around at night. On one day there was a transport strike (no metro), however, we were still able to get into the centre of Rome by bus No. 60 or 90. You could also get to and from Ciampino airport cheaply - bus from airport to Anagnina metro (E1.20) then metro to Conca d' Oro changing at Termini (E1.50).
