I gave it 4 stars, but maybe 3.5 is more accurate. It is good, but not perfect. The area is in central Rome, very close to the Manzione subway station. There is also a tram line that goes to the Colloseum in no time at all. There are also the ancient Roman walls (Aurelian walls) which are literally 2 mins from the hotel. So, in some senses the location is excellent.
However, the street the hotel is not that beautiful, with busy traffic, not many restaurants and mainly just shops and pubs.
The property itself is fairly nice. The rooms are spacious enough, they have wifi access, TV, fridge and the bathrooms are fine. It is very secure, with a safe, and three locked doors, so no security worries. The staff member (owner) seemed nice enough and willing to help us. However, she did tell us that there were a few problems with the property- first of all, the elevator is slightly faulty. The property is on the 3rd floor so she advises guests not to use it unless they have heavy luggage. Secondly, were told the shower had a limit of 9 litres of hot water, and then we would need to wait a bit for the water to reheat. To be honest, these are small worries. We used the lift for our suitcases and it was fine, and few people would go through 9 litres of hot water.
What else- overall the stay there was fine. There was a bit of a problem with the cleaning. Our towels were not renewed, and our toothbrushes were put back in the bathroom, bur they looked identical so we could tell which one was which.
The breakfast- you get a token for an Italian cafe in the nearby Carrefour supermarket. It is a typical working people's coffee bar, with a TV screen showing Italian news. The coffee and croissant taste fine, but you have to pay if you want anything more.
Overall, this place is fine for a young couple or single person who don't need luxury. We were on our honeymoon so it was a bit underwhelming.
