I love Rome and I love this hotel. I don't understand who could ever rate it as terrible, I thought it was great. I was there for 3 nights with my boyfriend and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff are incredibly courteous and helpful, our room was big and our bed enormous, the bathroom is also spacious and, most importantly, I found the hotel to be extremely clean. There was also absolutely no noise in our bedroom, so we slept like angels (I asked for a room on the 5th floor, as it's the furthest away, thus the most quiet). It is easy enough to get into the centre of Rome: you can get the 990 bus just around the corner from the hotel or you can also walk. We walked a few times and it takes about 15-20 minutes to get to the Vatican. Otherwise, you can get the free shuttle bus from the hotel, but make sure you book it well ahead of time, as the morning slots tend to get quite busy and the bus doesn't carry that many people.
There is also the train station Appiano just around the corner.
There is a beautiful terrace at the top of the hotel on the sixth floor: I don't think many people know about it: on our last night we sat there for a while, sipping a beer and watching the sun go down over Rome and St. Peter's, and there was no one else around, it was blissful.
The swimming pool is quite small, but clean. The area around the pool is spacious and well-equipped with sun loungers. If you're visiting the city and you simply want to use the swimming pool for a quick dip to freshen up, then it's perfect.
If you can't be bothered to go into the city for dinner, ask the hotel staff to tell you where the Il Peperoncino Dispettoso is: this is a restaurant-pizzeria, which is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel. The food is delicious and it's also quite cheap.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this hotel and I would certainly go back.
