If you plan a vacation in Rome, I recommend this place warmly. It's not a hotel per-se, but rather a nice 6-rooms floor.
We stayed for 5 nights and had a great experience.
-- Pluses --
Location: great. Just at the intersection of 3 main streets - Via del Corso, Via del Babuino and Via di Ripetta, and a few meters from the Flaminio metro station.
Staff (one reception lady): very nice, helpful, and fluent in English. It was apparent she also spoke Spanish and Portuguese.
Room: very cool; spacious enough, clean and well kept. Included Jacuzzi-tub and bidet.
Breakfast: for us it was very good to start the day with. Not a rich breakfast, but more than enough (toasts, croissant, cheeses, butter, jam, Notella, fruits, yogurt, tea/coffee, fresh juice), and everything was fresh. The tables were always clean and set when we woke up, and because the place is small and intimate, you can have your breakfast quickly (And quietly :) ), and start your day without any delay.
WiFi is free, although we did not use it.
-- Minuses --
The building's elevator was old fashioned, and a few times we had to walk the 3 floors down because it didn't operate so well. They do take care of it, but I guess there's some chance you could get unlucky on the day of your check-in.
Reception is manned till 7 PM and not 24 hours. Personally I don't see it as a problem, and I know that the reception lady stayed after 7 for late check-ins.
Finding the location took us a while, because there's no big hotel sign or anything like that. But it's a minor issue; you should just get off at Flaminio Metro station or ask for the taxi driver to take you to Piazza le Flaminio. The hotel is Right There - look for the golden plaque at the building's door.
There are no hotel-like facilities like swimming pool and fitness center, or a big Lobby. But who comes to Rome for those...?
