I would actually give this 3.5 stars if I could, but since I can't give half stars we will take it up to 4.
You have to keep your expectations tempered for this one.
1. The staff is friendly and helpful. They even stored our bags for us (for free!) while we went up to Florence for a few days.
2. They have an excellent breakfast that is included in the price of your stay. This includes hot items and not just a continental breakfast. They have scrambled eggs, charcuterie, excellent cheeses, danishes, juice, coffee, etc. Please be sure to leave a Euro or two for the kind people who prepare the breakfast and keep it replenished.
3. Location, location, location. It sits right in between the Rome Termini station and the Colosseum. How much more convenient do you get? It's also not too far from a Metro stop which is very convenient.
Really, it's just the look of the hotel. It hasn't been upgraded in awhile so it's not very fancy. But how much time do you actually plan on spending in your room? Not much, at least we didn't. They do have TVs with cable in each room. It's clean, the water is hot and they have WiFi. You do have to pay for the WiFi but it's affordable (but slow).
All-in-all, it depends on what you are looking for. If you want something affordable that offers the aforementioned amenities and you don't care how up-to-date it is, then this is your place.
