Is this a good deal? I have no idea

Flights from Manchester UK, staying at Hotel Orange (Breakfast included) for 7 nights - £363?

I have never been to Rome, and heard it is expensive. Would this be a good deal?

That is 424 euros in today's currency exchange rate - seems very inexpensive for flight and room but I would suggest you price out each (flight and hotel) separately just to see what the savings is - I don't know the hotel - there are reviews here:

And the hotel site here:

Sounds like a bargain to me, as the cheapest air from Manchester to Rome is Ryanair

Sounds like an excellent deal.

However the Orange Hotel is not in the heart of Rome as it claims to be.

That is far cheaper than the rate offered for the hotel for 7 nights. It may be a very good deal but check it out, preferably with the hotel. Who is offering the package? Is it someone reputable?

Rome can be quite inexpensive if you choose food and sightseeing wisely.

Depends slightly when that's for - with some periods much dearer than others - but, even in August (usually a cheap time both in Rome's hotels and for flights) just £52 a day is pretty good.... although you might want to confirm quite which of these two you'd be staying at:

tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g187791-d6743…

tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g187791-d2888…

Both are near where we stayed for our first visit together; from that area it does get slightly tedious to keep trekking into the centre, although taxis aren't very costly - and you'd not be far from one of the Metro line A stations (marked on this, appropriately enough, in orange!)....

.... with Piazza del Risorgimento on the route of many buses:

... and also tram 19:

Other than there being relatively few free museums etc, prices for stuff generally aren't so very different from those you'd pay in London.... with many of the same pitfalls awaiting the unwary visitor!

Not in the heart of Rome, but not in the sticks either. Via Crescenzio is an excellent shopping street with Rome's best regarded delicatessen. You're paces away from St Peter's, the Vatican museums and Casell san'Angelo. Campo di Fiore, the Pantheon and Piazza Navona are a very pleasant 10 minute walk away. And if you don't fancy longer walks or public transport to more distant attractions you're also on the doorstep of a taxi rank and taxis are very reasonably priced.
