We could not have asked for a better hotel. It was easy to find and walking distance from the Termini train station. It is also walking distance from the Colosseum, the Forum, and several other historical attractions. The rooms are what you would expect of a European four star hotel. There is, however, no bath, only a shower, and the AC is set by the hotel, so you have no control over the temperature.
The breakfast buffet was stunning. We especially enjoyed the Italian prosciutto and various cheeses. Great coffee, and cheerful, discreet staff.
The only downside, if I must mention one, is that it is on the via Cavour, which is quite a large and busy street. In the evenings, we had the pleasure of listening to a street violinist, a few steps away from our window. In the mornings however, we were awaken by car horns and traffic. Great hotel to wake up early and go sight-seeing.
This hotel is a bit pricy, but I would still highly recommend it and will definitely return the next time I visit Rome.
