I did read a lot of reviews here, some of which were not encouraging, but I decided to give it a try! The rooms are pristine, and are cleaned daily! The sheets and towels were sparkling white! The room on the hand was quite small.
The staffs were very friendly. I only had an issue with the guy at the bar downstairs. I bought drinks for a bunch of young Japanese guys on my first night at the hotel, he served me a bill of €16, I gave him a €20 note, but he never gave me my balance which was €4. It wasn't a big deal for me, but I found it totally unacceptable, as I didn't ask him to keep the balance!
Another downside was the breakfast. It was all cold food consisting of just bread, ham, cheese, and some mixed fruits in a sauce which appeared processed. They could do with a bit more variety and maybe something hot asides coffee and tea.
Be aware though that there's a 'city tax' of €2 per night per person, which is usually payable on arrival at the hotel. It's apparently not something peculiar to this hotel, but every hotel in the city of Rome (and a few other cities in Italy), so brace yourself for this 'tax'.
I couldn't fault the hotel otherwise, as you get good value for your money.
