This is a great little place. It is a converted apartment flat so things are a little different from a normal Hotel. A lot of reviewers were complaining about the noise, but room 1 was silent. I didn't hear a thing through the windows. The bed and towels were very clean as well.
The rooms them selves were a little spartan but honestly i wasn't expecting a lavish room. It's exactly what you need for exploring Rome and not staying in your room the entire time. The bed and pillows were very firm, but that's about the same all over Italy from what I gathered from other reviews.
The Hotel does have Wi-Fi and I never had an issue with it. A good solid signal with good speeds. There was a TV, but honestly i think i flipped it on once.
The location... that's the kicker. This place is great! you literally have a 10 minute walk to the Colosseum and a 15 minute walk to the Vatican. It's very centrally located and you can't get lost going home. You just find the Tibber river and head down river until you hit Ponte Geribaldi and head down the Viale Trastevere. After a long day of walking there are plenty of good restaurants around the hotel as well. I found a place called Da Vittiro, good service, great food and it wasn't crawling with people either. Check out Santa Maria in Trastevere while you're over there. It was my favorite church out of all of Rome.
The hotel staff (Sairis (sorry if I misspelled your name)) is very helpful and good to talk to. He ends up coming in at all hours to check people in as they arrive at the hotel. He speaks Indian, English and Italian and maybe another but I can't remember off the top of my head. The stairs up to the hotel aren't bad, just make sure you count out the right number of floors and dont try going into the door a level down... I definitely didnt do that. There is a small elevator to take you up and down if you have luggage too.
I would defiantly stay here again when I go back.
