The location is great - close to Repubblica metro station and about a 15-20 minute walk to the Colleseum and the Termini - and safe. It is right off Nazionale, so eateries and shopping abounds.
However, this hotel is very small and so are the rooms, the decor (dark and heavy) and amenities are showing their age. This was probably a luxury hotel back in the day. For a similar price or slightly more, you can find something more upscale. The service was good during the day, but somewhat less reliable at night. Breakfast is included and there is a considerable assortment.
Overall I'd say this is good for a 1-2 night stay, unless you're OK with only using your room to sleep, in which case you can find cheaper options. It would've been nice to have more room to wind down and relax after our days of sightseeing.
