We were very pleased with our stay at Rome's Locando Otello hotel, a very basic, budget, family-owned hotel a short block's walk from Station Termini. It was easy to locate and perfect for our needs, meeting all our expectations as a clean, quiet, simple room to nap after our overnight flight, store our luggage while we headed out for the rest of the day and into the night to explore Rome on foot and, when tired, by public transportation, and then to get a good night's sleep before leaving the following morning by train to meet our cruise ship in Civitavecchia.
The sweet little grandmother who checked us in was not fluent in English, but she charged us exactly what we expected (a price that allowed us to have plenty left for souvenirs and great memories from our day in the city), and her English-speaking helper directed us down one flight to our room. We booked directly through their website (I googled it online), and were able to save a few euros by doing so.
All in all, it was a very positive experience and we will definitely repeat our stay there the next time we are in Rome. (Of course, our rating was based on our expectations - we didn't expect a 4-star hotel, but we definitely didn't pay for one either since we weren't in the room long enough to justify that kind of expense~!! :)
