We stayed here 3 nights using Avios points and for the price/deal it was excellent value. If we'd paid full price expecting 4 star we'd have been disappointed as the bathroom was decided past it's best, a sorted of aged, fading elegance at best, shabby at worst, but clean it was desperately in need of refurbishment.
The bed was really comfortable and the room spacious, but the only sockets we could find for the kettle were on the floor - ok so long as you remember not to walk too close.
The building is lovely and the 'lounge' area great, as is free use of a computer and printer. We used wi fi in our room, but used the computer to print google maps and directions to place we wanted to visit that were not marked on the map.
The staff were very helpful and gave good advice on, for example the best way to get to the Vatican, or the easiest route to Spanish steps. We were able to check out but leave our bags there for the afternoon as we had an early evening flight.
We investigated their list of place to eat etc but found them to be too far away or too expensive/upmarket but enjoyed a great meal just round the corner in Via Viminale - Fontana al Viminale. A real plus point for this hotel is that it is really quiet and all the main sights are in easy walking distance, except the Vatican, which is easily reached by the metro. It's also handy for the trains and buses at Termini without being too close. I would definitely stay there again
