The hotel is located inside the complex of the Basilica of Santa Croce in Gerusalemme. If I hadn't read this before, I think I would have had some difficulties of finding it. But when you know it, look for the small door just on the right of the main Basilic entrance. The only indication is a very small and discrete sign on the door, that is hardly readable from the main road. Look for the "10" street number which is bigger.
From Termini station, take metro A to San Giovanni. Then don't take Viale Castrense which is a very uneven road, very bad if you have baggages (my experience). Instead, go through the fortification through the white gate that you see when you exit the metro station. Take then on the right Viale Carlo Felice. The church tower you see at the end of that street is where the hotel is. Something like 10 minutes walk from the metro station. Alternatively you can take tram 5 or 14 from Termini to Piazza di Porta Maggiore. This is faster and less than 5 minutes walk. But at peak hours it's impossible to get in the tram with baggages.
Room was clean. Not very large, but OK. Building interior and the room look a little bit austere, but don't forget that you are in an historic building. The room was very quiet as the window was on a side of the building inside the Basilica's complex. TV was minuscule and mainly with italian channels; but you don't go to Rome to look at TV... Breakfast was basic, but sufficient to start the day.
Don't miss the very large terrace on the roof, where you have a great view of Rome.
