My partner and I spent two nights at this hotel as part of a deal through a travel site, so we got a good price for our room. With this in mind, it seemed to be ok for the amount we spent. However we would have been quite disappointed if we had paid full rates for this hotel.
It is not badly placed, but at the time of our stay it was surrounded by noisy construction work and our balcony looked out over concrete/construction, with rubbish bins below - not a great view! (It was classified a superior/deluxe room).
The layout of the room was a bit odd, with the bed right in the centre. We couldn't quite put our fingers on why, but it made the atmosphere quite strange!
We unfortunately had a noisy toilet with water that kept running all the time. Only a minor issue but may be annoying for light sleepers. The bathroom was otherwise clean and serviced daily to replace soaps, towels, etc.
Breakfast was fine. Lots of varieties of food and freshly squeezed orange juice.
The staff were polite and helpful, however I felt our interactions with them were a bit impersonal. I suppose this is often the case in bigger establishments.
The location is fine, particularly if you look closely at the map beforehand and prepare yourself to be a bit further away from central attractions (i.e across the river). You can easily catch the tram to the centre of Rome where you have all the main attractions. There is also a shop that sells tram tickets right near the tram stop - I would recommend buying a few tickets in advance as we found it difficult to purchase return tickets once in the centre of Rome.
If you drive (as we did) there is a carpark/garage next door where you can pay to park your car. The atmosphere of the garage felt a bit "dodgy" and at first we were apprehensive to leave our car there, however it was fine in the end, we retrieved the car without any issue.
Overall, not a bad place to stay. But if we were paying full price, I think we could have done better.
