We arrived in Rome at Tuscolana railway station from Fiumicino airport by regional train (9 € per a person). This station is situated rather close to the hotel so we got to it by walk. It took 20-25 minutes and it was easy to find the hotel because at home we traced this route in Google Maps. But we don’t advise to follow our experience if you have much luggage. Wheels of suitcases don’t like the stones of pavement.
The hotel is located a bit far from the city center and the tourist attractions, but the trams 5 or 14 in 15 minutes take you to Termini from where these places are easy accessed. The tram stop is on Via Prenestina (Piazzale Prenestino) in 5 minutes walk from the hotel. Also supermarket and good pastry-shop are very close and located on the same street. It's very convenient to buy food stuff when you return at the hotel from the center. Just keep in mind supermarket's work hours.
The room was clean and spacious (nevertheless we saw someone's footmarks on the wall near the bed). It is separated by partitions into several zones: for cooking, for sleeping and for having meals or leisure. The furniture was not brand-new but it looked very well. It was simple but quite comfortable. Although I considered the beds were normal, my wife complained that the mattresses were too hard and caused feeling of discomfort.
The only significant disadvantage of kitchenette was that it hadn't enough dishes for cooking. In fact there were only two old pans. Don't hesitate to ask signora Linda at the front desk for extra dishware. She has a good command of English and gave us an extra pan. Besides she helped us to book the museum visits by phone and provided us with other useful advices.
The bathroom was clean, equipped with shower and stationary hairdryer. Shower cabin had a difficult character and it was in ‘slimfit’ style. It was funny but due to feature of ventilation I easy smelled in the bathroom what the guests in the nearby rooms had for meals.
It was a bit noisy late at night and early in the morning because the window of our room overlooked the street. The closed window partly solves this problem.
Don't forget that wireless internet is not included in the fee. You have to get account and to pay for the connection time (1,50 € per hour) which is spent each session you connect. The speed is not high but enough for web-serfing.
Summing up, it's an acceptable place for simple but quite comfortable staying.
