This is a great little hotel, entirely on the third floor of a building. If you don't like stairs, read no further, there are 58 of them and no lift.
Most contributors mention how hard this hotel is to find so I took the precaution of having a look at it on Google Street View. I'm glad I did as we arrived in the dark after our flight out was delayed. There is no sign, just a door push but we got there okay. We used the express coach from the airport to the Terminii and walked for about 15 minutes to get there.
The room was very nice, well furnished, clean and with airconditioning. As other contributors mention, the street side is noisy so we usually kept the windows closed. Breakfast is served on a tray in the room, from a menu filled in and posted the evening before. The manager Mauro is extremely welcoming and will do everything he can to make sure visitors get the best from his home city. His advice on visiting tourist spots, how to use the public transport and where to get good food was invaluable.
As for Rome - what can I say? This was our first visit and it was everything we hoped it would be. The Forum and Colisseum are just a short walk from the hotel and with a map and guidebook we explored the city on foot. The only time we used the train (Cavore station is a five minute walk) was to go out to Ostia Antica which was an unexpected delight.
This hotel is in a perfect position for exploring central Rome and there are plenty of eateries and bars nearby too. The Presidential Palace is nearby so it is quite busy. It is quite a trendy area but prices in restaurants were pretty good. We had been told Rome was expensive but compared to London prices, they were very good.
I would happily recommend this hotel to anybody visiting Rome and hope to stay there again myself.
