We stayed here for 8 nights in early August. We asked for a room on the first floor overlooking the garden to the rear of the hotel (We choose this room after reading a previous review/tip, it was worth doing so). The hotel has recently been renovated in a clean modern style. The hotel is airconditioned throughout, lovely to get back to after a hot day of walking and have a refreshing shower and siesta.
The hotel is in walking distance of Circo Massimo metro station and quite a few bus services. The hotel is well located so it is possible to walk to quite a few places such as Trastevere, Jewish Ghetto, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Piazza Venezia, Capitol Museum, Roman Forum and the Colosium.
The breakfast was good, we are vegitarians and often have trouble with food but there was a good choice here. The staff at the reception were good and helpfull in fact all the the staff in general were good. The wifi was good for an extra Euro 20 you can have wifi for your whole of your stay. The room was a good size for the three of us, although my sons bed was a bit mickey mouse (but it was covered up with nice bed cover). The bathroom facilities were good clean and modern (i'm in the bathroom business and sell the stuff everyday and the equipment installed was of good quality).
I liked this hotel, I would stay at this hotel again and recommend it to others.
