We stayed at the Merulana Inn for two nights at the end of a long Italian holiday. When we arrived at the address we found that it was not a traditional hotel in the sense of having a ground level reception etc, it is in fact a managed apartment. That is, in order to get in you need to ring a buzzer which connects with some chap who presumably is sat at home - who then lets you in remotely. Unfortunately this does not seem to work (which was backed up with conversations with other guests) - the only way to get in is to ring the number on the sign - twice - once to get in the main door at street level and a second time to get into the automatic door on the third floor.
However, this aside (which is a little off putting), the hotel is excellent. Very modern, clean rooms, friendly staff (who are there only in the mornings for breakfast), free wifi, LCD TV, free computer etc etc.
It is also pretty good value, much cheaper than similar spec hotels. You just have to put up with the initial task of getting in, and need to accept that there won't be any staff around for the majority of the time, should you have a late night desire for a club sandwich or the like!
