We stayed here during a recent trip (Oct '13) in Italy. We were here for 3 nights. It was unseasonably hot in Rome this Fall and we were very thankful that the AC was still on. Apparently it is an Italian law that AC is unavailable in May or October so this was a real treat considering Rome was 80+ F that week.
The room was pretty decent. Decor was nice, bed comfortable, room cold. There was a flat-screen TV and safe in room. The hotel was very quiet, which we appreciated. The bathroom could have been a little better, especially the shower.
The hot breakfast in the morning on the rooftop terrace was good. Eggs, bacon, yogurt, cereal, pastries, coffee, juices, overall very good.
The location was great in our opinion. It was a 2-minute walk to the metro and in a business district. The area dies down after 8pm so do not expect to be able to do much around there at night. There is a grocery store and pharmacy across the street where you can get cheap water, soda, and snacks. The location is not ideal if you want to be in the center of Rome, but we preferred to be in a quieter area ourselves.
The only issue we had was with an unhelpful member of the staff. The blonde girl who works the evening desk was the only person who was unhelpful. There was a national transportation strike the day we were scheduled to leave. We had never experienced this and just wanted some extra info about strikes in Italy and how to get to our next destination, Siena. She was not helpful at all and said that helping us in this capacity was not her job. She wouldn't even show me how to use the phone in our room (you had to dial 0 first). Like I said, she was unhelpful and in my opinion made the last night of our trip more stressful than it should have been. In the end the strike did not affect our travels, but it would have been nice if she could have told us that Italians do not take strikes all that seriously and that it would all probably be OK. The front-desk worker in the morning gave us good advice thankfully, but that didnt help us sleep any better the night before.
