We booked this as we wanted to stay in a safe neighborhood with 2 gals traveling and closer proximity to Vatican (about 15-20 minute walk). It didn't disappoint. We took the train to Rome Termini and transferred to the red line metro to Lepanto station. Once there, it's about a 4-block easy walk. Check in is at 2pm so they held our luggage in a secured room until we could check in. Elevator was in good condition. Hotel was sparkling clean. Room, toilet and elevator were small but expected in central part of European cities. We took a look at the gym, spa tub and sauna downstairs... looked good. Don't forget in Rome, they just started a hotel tax in which guests are charge 3 euros PER PERSON/per day, not per room.
The breakfast was excellent - with eggs, sausage, cereal, yogurt, pastries, milk, coffee and great tea selection. DOWNSIDE - we could not turn on the AC as it was 'not in season' yet. It was muggy enough that we needed it. Also the room walls to the hallway were paper thin. Guests checking out early in the morning woke us up as they closed their doors and walked down the hall - it was as though they were in our room!
