We just returned from a 2 week vacation in Italy, which ended with a 2 might stay at Hotel de Rome.
The hotel is in a great location, just around the corner from the Coliseum, and far enough away from the other major tourist attractions, that it is still affordable and a great home base. Everything is within walking distance and you don't feel like you're crammed into a hotel in a tiny alley like many of the hotels closer to attractions like the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps.
It is located at a farily busy intersection, however the windows in the rooms block out ALL of the traffic noise. Our friends stayed in a hotel up the street (further away from the intersection) and they couldn't sleep at all because of the noise. So this is a MAJOR pro, in my opinion.
The room was on the smaller side, but it was clean and modern and just enough space. The A/C was cold, which was great to beat the 40C+ heat outside. The shower doesn't have a proper door, so we soaked the floor every time we took a shower.
The only cons to this hotel is that despite the 5 or 6 WiFi networks available, I was never able to connect to the internet. The front desk clerk told us that they always have problems with Apple products connecting to the networks, so if you have an iPhone, don't count on the WiFi working at all.
The other con is that despite breakfast being served on a lovely roof top terrace, the actual breakfast was TERRIBLE. Poor selection, no hot food, a huge disappointment. You're better off skipping the free breakfast and spending the 5 euro for a croissant and coffee at the cafe up the street near the chinese restaurant.
Overall, the price was right, the hotel was clean and modern, the location was great and it is a solid choice for a Roman hotel.
