I can not possibly say enough good things about this hotel. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. Our room had high ceilings with french doors out to a balcony, and was very clean. Of course, as with any big city, the room was on the small side - but who goes to Rome to stay in their hotel room all day?
At the desk, they provided us with a map. They also gave great advice on the best way to travel to places we wanted to go and even drew on the map to show us the route! They called a taxi for us when we needed one and spoke English very well.
We arrived a little before check-in, and they let us check in early. Breakfast was simple but delicious. (They make your coffee for you fresh by the cup!)
Close to Via Veneto and The Borghese Gardens - both of which you should definitely walk. Hotel Garda is also close to a metro stop at Barberini Square. I had no problem taking that stop down to Ancient Rome and all the other historic sites I wanted to see.
The Hotel may be a little difficult for you to find, the sign is really small and you have to walk down a hallway in order to actually get to the entrance of the hotel... but that was, for me, part of it's charm! I suggest going on Google Earth and checking the street view of the area so you can recognize it easily once you are actually there in person.
