This hotel was fine, nothing spectacular but its location is the winner here.
It is located in a quiet, middle-class district just north of the main centre. With the recently new and as yet graffiti-free metro station of Agnese/Annibaliano on the B1 line (a new branch off line B) just ten minutes walk away, this hotel is a good base for getting to the main attractions easily and quickly. Trains pass through this station for Termini and beyond approximately every 10 mins until 11.30pm, and take about 10 mins to get to Termini.
Our room was a standard double. It was a good size, albeit a tad basic, with a queen size bed that could have done with a couple more pillows (although I'm sure if we asked reception, they would have gladly supplied more). It was nice and quiet so we got a good night's sleep every night.
It was generally clean although there were a few scuff marks on the wall paper and the grout on the bathroom floor was stained with mildew.
Apparently our package included a free mini bar on the first night, but all that was contained in the mini bar during our three nights stay there were two bottles of mineral water, two cans of fizzy drink and no alcohol!
Breakfast was your typical continental buffet from 7am - 10am. The scrambled eggs were a bit dried out, but there was plenty of everything else - pastries, cheese, ham, fruit, cereals, fruit juices, yoghurts, coffee.
The communal areas had some charm with a nice bar and spacious lounge by reception and a couple of terraces, one at ground level and one on the roof that may well have had a decent view (we only found the latter when we were on our way to reception to check out and the lift mysteriously brought us up to the top floor).
The staff were very friendly and helpful, and all-in-all we enjoyed our stay here.
Free wifi available, a PC by reception, a small lift (although arguably too tight for a wheelchair), safes in the room, air con, a small supermarket (Carrefour) five minutes walk away: the basics you need for a couple of decent nights' stay in Rome without the frills, at an affordable price for a four star.
