I spent a lot of time browsing the internet for a modern and affordable hotel close to the centre of Rome, having had some poor hotel experiences on previous trips. It was really hard to find anything, and even the expensive hotels had rather poor reviews. Finally I bumped into the H10. The hotel pictures, reviews, and modest prices stood out above everything else, so I decided to give it a try. It was a good choice.
As other reviewers have remarked, the hotel is brand new and stylishly decorated: everything works and is clean and in good shape. The beds are very comfortable both for sitting and sleeping, with my only complaint that I found the duvet a bit too hot (but as there is no noise on the street you can leave the window open, or alternatively turn on the aircon or take off the duvet and use just the blanket). Bath and shower are modern and in good shape like the rest of the hotel, with good water pressure and temperature. Other pros of this hotel are the free wifi service throughout the building, 5 free computers in the lobby (alas no printers), and the cooked-to-order eggs and bacon for breakfast. The bar also looked stylish and cosy, but seems to close rather early at night.
The only issue about this hotel is its location: it's in a residential area, about 4 km South of the city centre or 2 km South of the Trastevere area, which is popular for its bars and restaurants. It's too far to walk. There is a bus stop at 5 minutes walk from the hotel (bus 170), and it takes 15-20 minutes to reach the terminus at Piazza Venezia. A taxi costs around 15 euros. The hotel offers a complimentary shuttle to the city centre, but it only leaves 5 times per day at fixed hours so it's not very useful. I have to add that personally I found the travel no problem at all, and I even enjoyed seeing a non-touristy part of Rome. But it does make it less convenient to quickly pop by your hotel if you should forget something or want to take a short rest.
If you're travelling to the hotel from Rome's main Airport (Fiumicino) then DO NOT take the Leonardo da Vinci Express to Roma Termini, but rather take the normal train to Roma Trastevere station. From there it's a 10-15 minute walk or a short bus/taxi ride to the hotel. The train journey takes 30 minutes (just like the Express) and it's half as cheap at 5,50 euros rather than 11 euros.
