The hotel is in an up and coming area of Rome in the Testaccio district. It's clean, smart, trendy and easy access via buses/Metro/walking to the main centre of Rome. The reception staff were all incredibly friendly and helpful showing you were things were via their maps, printing bus timetables, finding out information in general really.
My room was lovely, I had wanted to stay somewhere a little more modern than the traditional chintzy-type B&B's you can end up in and boy did I hit the jackpot. The décor was black, red, white and very modern. I loved having a (very large!) balcony and the kitchen area was a lovely option I just chose not to purchase it as I wanted to make the most of being in Rome and eating out. The bathroom was clean and tidy also, perfectly large enough. No squeezing round the sink to get to the toilet. In fact the entire hotel room, well, suite as there was a sitting/dining area too was a wonderful size.
Breakfast was served in a restaurant downstairs that had not long opened (on the website it still said that breakfast was served in your room so I was a little confused upon arrival to be told to collect my ticket for breakfast downstairs as there isn't a downstairs to this hotel, all first floor!) Come the morning though the receptionist cleared it up for me. I personally thought the breakfast was lovely. A choice of croissants followed by toast and biscottate served with jams/butter and of course Nutella. Coffee or tea and fruit juice. The staff in the restaurant were also friendly and helpful.
Upon leaving I was allowed to leave my luggage with reception which was a great help as I wasn't flying till that evening.
All in all would I recommend this hotel? Yes
Would I stay here again? Definitely!
