We chose Napoleon based on reviews here and were not disappointed. The front desk is friendly (and speaks enough English). They picked us up for free by van (a/c non-functional) from FCO airport because of a 3-day reservation (see their website--the driver spoke no English, and did not believe in loading or unloading luggage). The room and deskspace a little limited by US standards, but the wardrobe (with the programmable lockbox within) and several items of furniture had keys, and could be locked. Bathroom was clean and the supplies fine (Europeans do not believe in washcloths, and the hand towels are usually thin. They also do not believe in oversupplying towels. There was one of each for each of us). The days we were there were not exceptionally hot, so the meager output of the A/c was adequate. The greatest advantage of the hotel is proximity to the Metro. The breakfast was definitely much more than basic although not top tier. The coffee is brought to the table (enough for 2 cups), and tasted like instant which it does in most places. Mini-bar rates were reasonable compared to airport prices and some other hotels we stayed at. They have Metro tickets at the desk if you need them. We never felt any safety concerns. For something I needed printed, I sent the .pdf by email to the front desk and they had it printed and ready for me (so interpret the 'business center' accordingly). I also had wireless internet 24 hours without additional charge, a big plus.
