My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights before a Med. cruise. At the end of our cruise we also stayed 1 night at a different hotel, so this review is based on a comparison between both.
Without a doubt Britannia was the better of the two. Both were supposedly 4* hotels, but Britannia felt more like a 3.5* one rather than a 2* one (like the other hotel did). The room we had was small, but the bed was big, there was closet space to hang your shirts/jackets, and washroom was decently sized with more counter space than we expected. The staff were always friendly and efficient, and those at the front desk were able to speak English very well. The hotel is centrally located about a 10m walk west of Termini station, which makes it closer to the main tourist sites to the west of the downtown.
One of the highlights of this hotel was its breakfast: It put any breakfast I've had in a North American hotel to shame. The breakfast was more of a brunch than anything. You had the usual toast, coffee/espresso, eggs, bacon, but you also had some amazing fresh fruit, tonnes of pastries, cookies and cakes, prosciutto, cheeses, etc., even some sort of rice and mushroom dish which I didn't try. The dining room looked rather fancy and neat as well for such a small hotel. The waiters were always quick too.
Overall, this hotel was excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. If you're looking for a solid 3* hotel for a reasonable price in central Rome, this is the perfect place. Grazie tante!
