We booked the Giubileo Hotel in Rome via the internet based on its location / proximity to the major historical sites. Key points for us were:
Friendly helpful staff always there on hand (also had a good laugh / banter with a couple of them, a great sense of humour)
Clean functional room. It faced on to the main street but with the shutters / windows / blinds closed the noise was never an issue (there was a full sized fridge in the room that made more noise than the traffic and I struggled to hear that)
It was only four blocks away from the Termini (railway station) so getting their by the train was easy (there is also a bus from the airport that is cheaper but takes more time and is less frequent)
Location was good and even 'HM the Wife' commented on how safe she felt even at night
Be prepared for some longish walks, about 2.5km to the Vatican but Rome is a BIG place and we enjoyed every step
Where is lost out was breakfast. It seemed to get less each day and sometime the food was okay but a little past its best. That said I consider it was still good value, a coffee would cost you €3 so for that reason, three coffees and two orange juices it was worth it.
I would recommend it and I would stay there again
