Lets start with the staff. Rooms and the general areas were kept clean by the chambermaids. the waiting staff at breakfast were very efficient. Reception was fast and friendly both behind desk staff and the bell boys.
We only had breakfast in the hotel and the choice of food was very goodbut don't expect an English breakfast. There are various cakes, cereals, fruit, meat and cheese with boiled eggs and sausage: so a wide selection.
We had a room upgrade to one overlooking the basillica and square which was a reasonable size with a comfortable bed and a bathroom with everything you would expect.
We had a problem with the safe with a flat battery but it was attended to quickly.
With all this the location could not be better. A 10 minute stroll from Termini station and the main sights are close and can be walked to if you want to. For instance the Colosseum would be around 45 minutes but you can admire the shops and buildings along the way. Otherwise take the metro or bus. Both metro lines have stations within 10 minutes walk. Pleanty of reasonably priced restaurants and cafes in the area. I would recommend the hotel.
