Looked for a long time to find a place in Rome for a moderate price. Like this because it is an easy walk (5-10Minutes) to the Termini-the central transportation point for all of Rome. It's right across the street from The Steak House (moderate prices good food). The staff was great, the rooms very adequate and very clean. An okay light breakfast bread and the fixings. Great Coffee machine-expresso, latte-no charge. Staff bends over backwards to please e.g., we were worried about luggage being over weight on way home--Monica (the desk person) brought her scale from home so we could check the weight--how's that for service.
Few things about getting around and seeing things: 1. Make reservations -- attractions are very crowded, long lines. You won't even get in Borghese unless you book ahead. 2. Take a tour of the Vatican-or you will get hopelessly lost. We used Dark ??-about $30 including admission-you will never make it on your own. 3. Buses including hop on and off are almost useless because of the traffic. Use the Metro-easy to use after you figure it out-you determine direction by last stop on the line. AND when the warning buzzer goes off DON't get on-the door will keep closing-will not retract automatically if you are in their way. 4..Food is very expensive near the major tourist attractions Much less expensive across the Tiber in the Trastevere area (or at the Steak House). Try Pannis for lunch -- usually less cost in one of the market areas 5. Take a taxi to the airport--cost is not much more with two people. Book on the internet (in English). We paid 44 Euros-and went right to the Airline door.--well worth the price.
Note: If you are travelling in the summer, it will be very hot and the crowds will be unbearable. We went in April and the weather was very pleasant --still crowded, but less.
