It's a nice place in a less than beautiful location. The hotel is at least a 30 minute walk from the train station in a university area; there are no direct buses from the station to the hotel. There is a lot of graffiti on the streets in the area, and the hotel is a few doors down from the Salvation Army.
The rooms are very clean, well-equipped and spacious, and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly and gave us excellent restaurant recommendations in the area. There are cafes and restaurants and a local street market not far away, but most things on the street itself (Apuli) are closed in the evening and it is a depressing area to walk through at night.
The price includes breakfast which is truly horrible - processed long-life sweet cakes wrapped in plastic, sweetened processed cereals, sweetened uht juices, and coffee in a thermos; you are meant to help yourself and take these things on a plastic tray back to your room to eat. There are a couple of nice cafes next door which are open in the morning and ideal for breakfast.
It's a bit of a trek to the other side of town - there is a bus near the hotel that goes to the Colosseum, but if you are planning a night out it is a grim-looking place to return to late in the evening.
The rooms offer good value for money, but the hotel isn't for everyone. Better suited to confident young travellers than people looking for romance and beauty.
