The good: Great location close to Vatican city and walkable distance to most of the sites and an easy metro ride to the more distant ones (Colosseum, Forum). Breakfast was adequate and gluten-free friendly. Most importantly the staff was very helpful with restaurant suggestions and transport the airport (a nearby express bus is much cheaper than the rail option). The air conditioning is very powerful once you figure out how to work it. Showers were more consistent and powerful than you usually find in Italy.
The bad: I think the most popular bar in Rome is right next door with lots of outdoor seating on a busy road so it is very noisy in the (somewhat small) rooms - the noise didn't bother me or my wife, but did bother my brother and his wife in the room above us. Maintenance is a bit of an issue, our safe didn't work, my brother's AC remote was balky, and neither of us could get our televisions to work.
The décor contains a lot of orange, so if you crave soothing colors you won't find it here.
Overall the experience is pretty typical of hotels in the western hemisphere so I would recommend it (unless you are a light sleeper)
