Overall this is a great 3-star hotel property - no complaints there. They were able to graciously accommodate our family of 5 (young kids) in a relatively large double bed room. Not many views but you're never in the hotel room long enough.
The hotel is located near the University section and there are a couple of bus lines that come close to the hotel. The closest metro stop (Policlinico) is a good 1km walk (5-7 brisk walk). Not too far from the Termini station (5 mins by bus or taxi).
The lobby is spacious and inviting for a small hotel like this. Reception staff is helpful with tourist ideas and finding out about things for your from the internet. Daily coffee, water, pineapple juice and light biscuits complimentary in the lobby - nice touch. Two elevators (although one seemed to only go down :) which is good because they are NOT that big in Europe (we are very spoilt in the U.S.).
Rooms are spacious and comfortable and the bathrooms well-appointed. Shower is large enough compared to others I used in my 10-day vacation in Italy and France. Complimentary breakfast is run-of-the-mill continental with two hot items (usually scrambled eggs and breakfast meat) - but the pastries, dessert and bread choices are plentiful. I wish one could pay a bit more and order made-to-order omelettes or waffles because you can sick of the continental. Not that many choices right outside the hotel for food either, but there's a LOT in Rome.
Enjoyed our stay here but would probably choose a hotel closer to tourist attractions or the metro next time.
