This hotel is located in a very convenient and pleasant part of Rome. The building could use some renovation works but the 3rd floor, where the hotel is situated, looks and feels brand new. The elevator is also new and in perfect working condition.
The room was very clean and neat, the bathroom was surprisingly spacious and also very clean, the a/c was working perfectly and the staff was friendly and helpful.
The limited use of wi-fi (accessible in the reception&breakfast areas only) is the reason I don't give this very good value-for-money hotel a perfect rating.
Other issues like the basic breakfast menu (which was OK for me, if you need more just go to the pizzeria across the street which is absolutely amazing) or the firm matresses (which is a matter of personal taste) were trivial for me.
One last thing was the visitors' municipal tax (2€ per person / per night). This must be something new because the staff was not very experienced in handling this well. First of all I thought it was included in the price, it was not. The staff just placed a notice on the entrace door which I was supposed to pay attention to. I did not. An informative talk during check-in or a copy of this new law placed in my room's door would be enough to save me from the trouble of searching for money at 6:30 in the morning while checking out.
All in all this hotel is highly recommended for anyone who wants to enjoy quality standard facilities in a nice part of Rome. Go for it!
