I stayed here with my friend recently after choosing it from a big list on travel republic. We were so pleased with our choice! In terms of location, it was great, just a short walk from the Roman Forum and within easy reach of the Colosseum. Also, just around the corner was a local bus that took you to The Vatican within 10 mins for only 1.60 so you could get to all the sights really easily.
The hotel itself could do with a little bit of an uplift, some of the paint work looks a little tired, but it's not a major issue. Our room was on the 6th floor and wasn't huge but considering you're probably going to be out most of the time, it was adequate, and the bathroom was quite nice with a good shower. The best bit of our room was the view, as soon as I opened the shutters i said wow, as we could see the big memorial to Victor Emmanuel II and across the city towards the Vatican.
If you have a room that faces the road, don't worry, as the hotel has a lovely roof top terrace, which has even better views, as you can also see the Colosseum off to your left. There's some nice patio furniture up there and you are allowed to take drinks from outside up there, which is good as other hotels would no doubt make you buy stuff from them only. We sat up there in the glorious sunshine and couldn't believe we had such a lovely view for such a reasonably priced hotel.
The breakfast at the hotel was good. it's buffet style and had all the usual suspects of a continental breakfast: rolls, cheese, cold meats, eggs. But it also had different combos of tomatoes and cheeses plus fruit, yoghurts, a toasting machine, jams, pastries and small cakes. So definitely more than adequate, again, especially as it's included in the price.
The staff on reception were very helpful, they told us where to get the bus, and recommended somewhere nice to eat for lunch.
All in all, for your basic needs, a great location and a gorgeous view, this hotel fits the bill and as I'm sure I'll return to Rome in the future, I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for the end room on the sixth floor as you definitely get a decent room there and a great view a...

Hotel good points -
- free wifi
- good central location / walking distance from most sights
- very nice roof terrace and views of rome

Hotel bad points-
- reception/lounge and rooms are old/tired and dated
- breakfast ranged from Average to poor including awful quality bread and watered down orange juice
- most uncomfortable hard hotel bed I've ever experienced.

In short , if luxury is important to you , then this is not the hotel for you.

This hotel has a great location! In walking distance to the main sights of Rome and to bus and metro stops. Yes the hotel is a bit out dated and the lift a bit noisy, but my room was clean and comfortable (with a pretty good view!) and the staff friendly and helpful. I would stay here again 'when' I come back to Rome!

Room Tip: The rooms at the back of the hotels on the upper floors have the best views.

The Hotel is brilliant located in the city centre of Rom. From our roof top we had fantastic views over the city. 10 minute walk to the colloseum and 2 minutes to the Complesso del Vittoriano.
Would take the same hotel next time!

As I got closer to the room I started smelling MOLD , entering the room the smell intensified and
I noticed wall paper peeling off next to the bed, confirming my suspicion regarding humidity problems.
Unfortunately also the pillows smelled of MOLD.

The view was definitely not the prime view described in other reviews, as the window of Room 18 faces a rather shabby courtyard.
Interesting noises echoing fron the courtyard woke me up several times during the 3 nights I spent there, some sort of "angry ducks" ?? .

The first morning I took a very uncomfortable shower in the nicely renovated bathroom, as the shower head was not fixed firmly to its support.
I asked to have it repaired and the repair job lasted 1 shower, after which the shower head was hanging again limply from its support.

Breakfast was tendentially good but bread and pastry could have been of better quality i.e. more representative of Italian culinary excellence.

Room Tip: Avoid Room 18

Brilliant location - can walk just about everywhere from it. 10 - 15 mins from the coliseum & roman forum.
Staff polite & courteous enough although nothing special.
Room was a bit disappointing. Stains on the ceiling, wall paper damaged on the walls, mold in the very small shower, no plug in the sink, no trouser press (advertised in the hotel blurb), no iron.
In summary a tired Hotel in need of a bit of TLC & investment.
Breakfast (we were only B&B) was good and there are terrific views from the roof terrace.
This would in my opinion be a 3 star in the UK.
The above would not stop me recommending it, although would emphasis it's quality is the location & does not have a wow factor at all.

Room Tip: Ask if there any that have been recently updated.
