Stayed here in Feb as part of a package deal. Was a bit hard to find the first time, since it is off the beat and path but only a block away from the major streets and a few blocks walking distance from Piazza Fiume with cafes, gelato shops, grocery stores, great pizza, theaters, etc. Desk staff was friendly and houskeeping very nice (although had difficulty speaking English), served you continental breakfast of espresso, cappuccino, or latte, juice, hot roll and butter, croissant, and packaged melba toast. Not much, but they came back and offered us more each day if we wanted it. About a 10-min walk to the metro line B, 15 min to the Roma Termini, or you could walk up to the top of the street and catch the streetcar trolley. Private bathroom took getting used to, since the shower is located right in the center right over the toilet. Towels were flat linen, more like bed sheets, not terry cloth, but basic soap and a sample packet of shampoo was provided. Room was clean, decent, size was adequate, not big though, and the bed was full size taking up most of the room. Tiny TV on high shelf received limited channels, all Italian. Hotel occupies the first floor of a multi-story apartment building, so the gate is locked after dark at night, but you can press the buzzer, and they will buzz open the door for you. Never had to wait at all for this. I found it in a good location and well worth it for budget accomodations. Would recommend to tourists looking for budget, comfortable, but not deluxe accomodations.
