We (my husband and I, along with another couple) spent 4 nights at Hotel Sonya in May. The hotel is located about a 5 min walk from the main train station (Roma Termini), and we had not issues walking to the hotel from there with all our luggage, not necessary to get a taxi. It is about a 20 min walk from the hotel to the Colosseum (shorter if you take some small side streets), and about 45 min walk to Vatican city. It is very easy to get to Vatican City on the underground from the hotel as well, the stop is about 5 min walk from the hotel and is 1 euro for the 5 min subway ride which stops about 6-7 blocks from the Vatican (the hotel can advise the name of the stops). The hotel is sort of on the perimeter of the main tourist area, but if you enjoy walking and exploring (like we do) its a great place to stay.
The rooms were clean and a good size for European hotels, the bathroom was a bit small but sufficient and clean. My only complaint with the rooms is that the mattress' were quite hard and not that comfy to sleep on. The breakfast was pretty good, not a huge selection but sufficient, and it was pretty well stocked whether you ate at 8am or 10am. There is free wifi at the hotel also.
The hotel certainly meant our expectations and I would stay there again if I returned to Rome.
