Hotel Universo is located very near central station, this is supposed to be a dodgy area especially at night, however, the hotel is located on a street with many other hotels and restaurants and so never felt unsafe. The staff are pleasant and helpful, the breakfast adequate although the bacon was inedibly salty and this and the eggs on the cool side, however it is plentiful and there was even a chocolate fountain. It is walkable (about 20 min) distance to the Colosseum, and if you get a Roma Pass (at the central station, airport or other tourist locations) you have free public transport and 2 free entries into attractions/museums and discounts into countless more, so from the central train station it is just a few metro stops in any direction to get to any tourist destination. There are good restaurants in close walking distance from the hotel, and a laundrette with an english speaking assistant very close by - helpful for those that have been travelling for a while! Free Wi-Fi in the room is pretty good, TV has 3 english news channels, so if you like the news you're covered! The room is OK in size, there was enough room to have the suitcase open and still walk around the bed and into the bathroom, which is not always possible! The bed was exceptionally firm. For me the location was good, and it is reasonable value for money.
