Stayed here as a couple (in our early 20s) for four nights at the end of October. Couldn't have asked for a better base for our first trip to Rome!
First of all, the hotel is in an absolutely perfect location. No more than a few hundred yards to the Trevi fountain (especially if you get to know the shortcuts!) and within very easy walking distance of the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon and Piazza Navona. We didn't use public transport at all, visiting both the Vatican and Colosseum by foot as well. Make sure and bring a good pair of shoes!
The hotel itself is small, but from the looks of things, so are most Roman hotels. Our room was more than big enough for the two of us, with a comfortable bed and very effective air conditioning. There was some noise from the streets below, but nothing that would keep us awake or bother us. Very large bathroom and an excellent power shower. Rooms were cleaned every day and the bathroom was kept spotless. The staff in the hotel couldn't have been more helpful, recommending places to eat and organising transfer to and from the airport for us (we had awkward flight times and didn't want to rely on public transport).
There are a couple of things which some people might raise issue with, but which has no bearing at all on how much we enjoyed our hotel and trip. Firstly, there is a small tax of 2Euro per person/per night to be paid at the end of the stay - luckily we read this both on here, and on the hotel website, so didn't have any unpleasant shocks when checking out! Lastly, after a certain time (not sure what the cut off was) you have to ring a buzzer to get back into the hotel. We didn't mind this at all, if anything the extra security made us feel all the more secure.
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone I know and definitely wouldn't think twice about staying here again should we return to this beautiful city!
