We stayed here in January 2006 for four nights. Our room was as small as we expected, but clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was fine and the location good.
The room had a double bed that we found comfortable, with just enough room to walk round it. There was ample hanging space, a TV on a dressing table and a mini-bar or fridge (we didn't open it to see what it really was). The bathroom had a shower (no bath) with terrific flow and a lever to set the temperature to whatever you fancied. As well as the wash basin and toilet there was a bidet. The good size mirror above the basin had good lighting on it, too.
There was a problem with the shower tray - it wouldn't drain properly. Mindful of an earlier report of difficulties with the staff, we wondered what would happen when we reported it. The helpful receptionist took a note and it was fixed by the time of our next shower.
Breakfast is plain continental, but there is a good choice including cereals, fresh fruit, yoghurt, and rolls with preserves, cheese and ham. Drinks include coffee, chocolate, tea and fruit juices (also from a machine that seems to mix them from powder - not the best feature of the breakfast). You can eat as much or as little as you want.
The hotel is just a block from Termini station and excellently situated for walking to many of the essential sights of Rome. It's convenient for the Metro trains, buses and trams that all go from Termini.
We travelled to Rome by easyJet and used the Terravision bus to get to and from the aiport. The bus drops off at Termini, just a short walk from the hotel.
There are dozens of restaurants within a ten minute walk of the hotel. The largest selection is the other side of Termini, where there are probably twenty or thirty in the neighbouring streets.
We were happy!!
