Myself and 4 friends stayed at this hotel for 3 nights 9th-12th May 2013. I had checked it out on trip advisor before booking and the reviews were spot on for the friendly service.
Rooms were fine, beds comfy and a lovely shower and rooms cleaned and towels changed daily. I had seen reviews about the thin towels however I loved them and am trying to find similar ones back in England, much more absorbent than fluffy ones.
A slight downside is the early morning street noise but you are in a really central location.. step out of the door and the colosseum is facing you along the street! Just take some ear plugs.
Breakfast was fine, the usual continental stuff but always with a lovely cake as well as a variety of fruit, cereals, nice coffee and a good toaster which wasn't too slow. What made it special were the two waitresses who couldn't do enough to make us happy, this is a family run hotel and it shows in the atmosphere, very cheerful all the time.
As we had a late evening flight they looked after our luggage after we had checked out and gave us facilities to freshen up when we returned from our day out before flying home, had an altogether great time in Rome made even better by staying at this hotel. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else when I return.
The whole area around the hotel is full of bars and restaurants all reasonably priced, we ate at a different one each night and had some excellent food, thoroughly recommend it.
