We stopped here for a long weekend if sightseeing, two adults and too children (12,13).
They arranged a taxi pickup from Ciampino airport for a very good price which made all the difference on arrival, and the kids loved the fact there was someone waiting at the airport with our name on a placard.
It is located about mid-way between two underground stops (Policlinico and Bologna) but as a hint walk to Bologna and take the opportunity to buy drinks and snacks (at normal prices) from the shops you pass along the way. Alternatively just around the corner is a tram stop for the number 19 tram that takes you very close to the Vatican.
The hotel made us very welcome right from check-in, the desk staff were all helpful giving answers to whatever I asked of them. The room was clean, bright and if a good size. Breakfast was much the same as anywhere. They do a buffet in the evening (€15) per head, but we did not like the look of it and ate elsewhere. There are few eating options around, so we ate in the centre before returning back of evening. Much to the kids delight, there was an excellent ice cream store just down the road (Fatori) so we did have something to look forward to of an evening.
I would certainly stop there again if in Rome.
