The hotel is located at Bus 87 stop. Across the street it goes to the Colosseum and other sights. It is in a very convenient area of the city. Can also walk to the Metro (but not that close to the Termini) We stayed there a total of 7 nights - the first in a double, then 5 nights in a triple and the last night in a single. Ivan was at the front desk most of those days. He is excellent: speaks and understands many languages and tries to be quite helpful. Some of the other people on the front desk had a harder time in English and were not as friendly or helpful.
The hotel looks like it was remodeled fairly recently and was clean, except for the next to the last day when they didn't clean the room. The double room had a full bath and shower. The triple room only had a shower, but it was of adequate size. The street noise on the front is a problem and we had requested a non smoking room on the back on a high floor. Instead we were placed on the 3rd floor on the front. I asked about a room on the back and was told there are no triple rooms on the back, only the front. I didn't notice any smoke until the next to the last day when later in the afternoon the room became very smoky from the person in the room next door smoking on the balcony. Since the room seemed pretty tight and there are no vents in the bathroom I don't know why there was so much smoke in the room which persisted until the next day when we checked out. On check-out I found out they had placed me on a smoking floor! (There was nothing to indicate that there are non-smoking and smoking floors, and we had requested a non smoking room). The beds and pillows were comfortable and AC was good. They advertise "Spacious safebox that can hold a laptop" It will not even hold a 10" netbook. Probably would hold a smaller tablet. There are several steps from the entrance to the small 4 person elevator to the lobby - then a different 4 person elevator to the floors. The breakfast has mainly pastries, cereal, yoghurt and some fruit. Only hot food is scrambled eggs and undercooked bacon. But plenty to eat. There are also free light snacks in the evening (pay for beverages) Free Wireless on each floor but would only connect less than 50% of the time and when connected was slow. TV only had CNN in English + other non English channels. Free Coffee / tea/chocolate machine in lobby which worked most of the time. My rating would probably be 3.5, not 4. I would stay here again because of location, but would insist on high, non-smoking room on back if possible. Hotel said they would try to honor that but hotel was probably full the entire time we were there. Someone who stayed in 802 on same floor as breakfast said it was a great room with a view- evidently a double.
