Thanks for pointing us to the iQ Hotel Rome.
It's a very efficient, modern, quiet and friendly hotel, about 4 blocks from the bus and rail terminus. Not far to pull bags as a new arrival without your wits about you.
Over our two day stay we had three problems with our room. Firstly no heating, then only bathroom towel rail heating, then a constant whine in our room. Each was quickly dealt with when we reported the problems and gradually all settled. The hotel was full, and we had a disabled visitor room as that was the only room left. Maybe it had been closed a while.
We slept very comfortably in our clean and modern room. Safe provided.
Others have mentioned the sensible facilities, be it vending machines down to small bottles of wine... the small gym/sauna.... washing facilities etc.
But as people have mentioned, breakfast is the key. It's served on the top floor - roof terrace available in summer. Huge range of cereals, meats, cheeses, hot buffet, juices, fruit, coffee, lovely cakes. At €10 a person it's not a big hit to make your mind up on the day if you choose - but well well worth it.
The subway is only a couple of blocks away so getting to the Vatican, Colosseum, Spanish Steps is easy. A main shopping street is just at the end of the block as well.
All in all, very central, very clean, very polite, very quiet and very convenient.
If you're tired on arrival like we were, try Bertizello for a cosy pizza or pasta. We went both nights and had excellent meals at a great price. See separate review, but thank to the iQ for our stay, and that dining recommendation.
