The location is great. We are a young active couple so walking around town was not an issue. We were very close to the Spanish steps and the shopping, eating, and night life and sites within that area. We were also able to do a walking tour of Rome leaving right from this location that was superb. The coffee shop out the front door to the left was a great place every morning to grab a cappuccino and a quick breakfast before getting the day started. We felt safe as well walking around the neighborhood. Be careful though if you aren't accustomed to the drivers there. Safe is a relative term. The drivers go fast, cut in and out of lanes, cut corners and barely give a glance to those crossing the street. So we didn't think we would be robbed here (still beware of pickpockets . . . my husband got "checked" near the Pantheon but nothing stollen) but you must be aware of walking around and safe when crossing the street in this busy area.
As far as eating goes, there is a plethera of places to go around the hotel. No worries there. You can find all kinds of levels of prices. Lots of wonderful pasta and local eats.
As far as the room, we stayed in the one with its own private bath and a double bed. The room is small but that really doesn't matter if there is just two people. The room was very clean and the bathroom updated with modern amenities. There was even a small kitchen and dishes in our room if we had wanted to get something from the market and cook but with so many places to eat for a reasonable price, we never used the cooktop. There is a TV too but we never watched it. Linens were soft and clean, towels nice, and there were robes too if you wanted to lounge around. Shower small but again, that isn't a complaint just a fact of staying in Italy. Water tank small so shower lasts about 10 minutes for hot water but again, not a complaint, just an FYI. Very large windows in room to view the street below. If left open, could get noisy at night when sleeping but not bad at all.
Staff very friendly but she didn't speak English at all so know some basics to make things easier on everybody. She was very helpful with showing us a map and all the places to go for site seeing and shopping. The rooms were cleaned, bed made, and towels replaced every day.
Overall, very worth the price in my opinion.
