There should be a GOOD rating between Average and Very Good. I had to vote Very Good because I couldn't choose Average. If it was possible, the rating would've been Good.
We booked through Booking.com, so we got a good deal on a 4* hotel and we knew we'd get the room we'd paid for. That being said, although the room was small, it was good enough and we were pleased with it. Very comfortable bed and pillows, we slept like logs.
The hotel is not in Rome, it's about 12km from the city, on the very, VERY busy Tiburtina Road. So, if you don't have a car, stay elsewhere because it's a bit far. If you do, it's perfect. There is a subway/metro station 3km away where you can park your car the whole day for 1,50€, and the subway ticket is 1€ per trip. The subway takes you directly to the Coliseum, so right into the heart of it all.
Breakfast: ok, but not for a 4* hotel. Besides, you have to chase Mr. Person in Charge of Breakfast for coffee or tea, because there is none in the room. Mr. Person in Charge of Breakfast is not very friendly or available, he will slam (yes, slam) the door shut at 10:30 so nobody else comes in. Unfortunately, he was only replaced on Sunday 3rd July by a much nicer, customer oriented lady we also saw at the reception desk.
Wi-fi is provided free, which is a very nice plus.
There is a very nice restaurant next door if you don't want to linger in Rome looking for a proper place to eat your dinner - Re Basilico. Good food, good service.
