While we would say the hotel is clean, and the staff are fairly helpful, for me the most important thing was the location, and that is the main thing that lets down this hotel. This hotel basically looks like it is in the middle of a trading estate.
If you are after a cheap hotel for a few days away, the hotel itself is OK. It is clean, the rooms are quite large, the breakfast is continental, and the staff are very willing to help and advise.
You only have a problem when you want to get to the centre of Rome. I paid a lot of money for a central location for a surprise birthday gift, but 9K from the centre is not central.
Just a little advise, the reception will give you the bus number, but you cannot pay the bus driver, you have to get your bus ticket from an ATAC machine, and if you walk to the main road, turn right and go under the bridge in front of you, walk onto the left hand side of the road, and about 100 yards you will come to a little terminal, you will find the ATAC machine there. If you are caught without a ticket, there is a fine, so be careful.
The bus was always very very busy, and you will normally be standing for the 45 - 50 minutes to get the the Termini in the centre.
We felt a little uncomfortable walking back to the hotel at night, as I said above, is basically a trading estate, and walking through it at night wasn't the most comfortable experience, but it was only about 100 yards from the main road to the hotel, so was OK with a little care.
I didn't really know how to rate the hotel, and my 2 out of 5 is only because to the location, if the most important thing to you is the hotel and the room being clean and tidy, you would have to give it a slightly higher rating, but location is the main factor for me, which is why it only got a 2.
