Myself and my partner stayed at this hotel in July 2013 for 4 nights. The location was brilliant, near the colloseum, the Trevi Fountain, shopping, restaurants etc. Lots to do and see within walking distance. The hotel itself was very average though, I wouldn't have rated it 4 star. It is starting to get tatty around the edges but to be fair the hotel did seem to be aware of this and were doing some work while we were there. Our room was very small but I have stayed in lots of old European Hotels and this is normal for the building style. The room was clean, air conditioning worked. The breakfast was Ok / good, to be expected for a continental. The staff were friendly but we didn't really deal with them much other than to order a taxi for the airport and to check in and out.
My only real complaint was the noise. The walls are very very thin and when in your room everything going on in the corridors and even in rooms opposite if loud enough could be heard so every morning around 7.00am we were woken up. The doors lock with keys not modern key cards so everyone locking and unlocking their doors could be heard even if they were quiet themselves. Our room was at the back of the hotel so I cannot comment on the road noise. There were a lot of sirens (maybe a police / ambulance near) but I expect this noise in a city so no real complaint there.
All in all I would say it was average, not terrible but not brilliant. I would look for a different hotel next time but if I had a great deal offered at this hotel I wouldn't be adverse to going back especially with the location.
