We stayed for 4 nights. The hotel uses rooms on the 1st and 5th floors of the building. The desk on the 1st floor is staffed most of the time, but not 24/7. Using Google maps on my smart phone, we had no problems walking to and finding the hotel from the Castro Pretorio Metro stop (B line). The walk was ~700 meters/10-15 min. At check-in, we think the staff was cleaning rooms when we arrived, so it took a little time to gain entry to the building. Another tenant or guest let us in as they exited. The room was clean and good sized for a European hotel - it fit my wife and I comfortably. The bathroom had a small shower stall, good size sink/counter and std toilet + a bidet. The complimentary Wi-fi worked great. The closet was a stand-up cabinet. Although our Italian is minimal, we had little difficulty communicating with the staff in English. The hotel is located just outside the old (Aurelian) wall across the street from the Porta Pia. Many embassy's are nearby including the British (across the street), Villa Bonaparte (a branch of the French embassy - several blocks) and the US (1 Km). The Villa Borghese was an easy 10-15 min walk. Walking to Republica, Spanish steps & Trevi fountain is a bit further, but easy as well. A short bus ride took us to Piazza Navona. There were many busy restaurants & cafes in the area filled with Romans - not too many tourists. We really liked the cafe/piadini shop next door (open for breakfast/lunch only). We would definitely stay again!
