We booked this hotel through Thomas Cook so actually doubted it would actually be there on our arrival - but that's another story though it's safe to say we'd never use Thomas Cook again...even if they were the last agent in the world!
We were really pleased to find that the hotel was, at max, a five or six minute walk from the zoo that is Termini Station. It's fair to say that the area is not the best in Rome although it will suit you perfectly if you are coming/leaving from Termini. Restaurant choices are limited but, that said, you won't starve either. Being close to the station allows for easy pick-up of tourist buses - but caution - be prepared to stand in line, with no shade, for 30+ minutes waiting for a bus with space - this is despite assurances, when you are sold the tickets, that there is a very short wait.
Seamless check-in from a serious, but pleasant enough chap, room 302. The room was spotlessly clean with minimalist furniture and fittings - good level of comfort and decent TV and free Wi-Fi. Nice Jacuzzi bath if you like that sort of thing.
Jacuzzi on 6th floor - nice touch although quite cozy if more than a couple of users at any one time - definately worth a try.
Breakfast - Nice selection of pastries, breads for toasting (in possibly the worlds slowest toaster), good enough coffee from one of those automatic machines, OJ not quite so nice. A perfectly acceptable breakfast.
In conclusion, we'd have no hesitation in staying at this hotel again but the staff could just be a little bit more friendlier - and would have got the full 5 star rating.
