I just completed a 3-night stay at Hotel White. I would stay here again. However, I do need to mention that at this moment in time they are undergoing a renovation, so I would maybe suggest waiting until the work is done as it was a bit noisy.
I arrived early due to my flight schedule and my room was not ready, they offered to walk me to one of their sister properties if I wanted a room immediately. I just had them store my bag and went site seeing. Location is great - 100m from the Trevi fountain (about 2 blocks) and a 6 minute walk to the metro. There is a grocery store a few doors down and plenty of restaurants and cafes in the immediate vicinity.
The rooms are small by American standards, but typical of city hotels in Europe. As a solo traveler, I had plenty of room, but if I had been sharing, it might have been a bit of a squeeze. I would not recommend this hotel to a business traveler as there is not really any adequate work space.
The staff were all very helpful. They too were a bit discombobulated by the reno (between the time I stopped in to drop off my bag and the time I returned late in the afternoon, the front desk had been moved to a temp space due to the work and they were still sorting themselves),but made it all work. They typically charge 5euro/day for internet but because there were issues with connectivity the first day due to the construction, they didn't charge me for the day that I did use it. Also, when I requested an early wake up call for the morning I checked out, I was offered a box-breakfast to take with me since I would be leaving before breakfast was served.
Also a note to those unfamiliar - Italy has a standardized hotel classification system that is based on quantitative items (parking to room ration, size of lobby, number of times in a day that rooms are serviced) and not on qualitative aspects such as charm or ambiance that is more typical in the US. So a 3-star might actually be nicer than a 4-star, but if they don't meet checklist criteria, they will have a lower rating. Hotel White is a 4-star under the Italian system, but may not be what an American necessarily thinks of as 4-star.
