We stayed here at the suggestion of Elizabeth Minchilli and her Eat Rome app. (Get it if you're going -- best $3 you'll spend.)
We were very happy with the hotel and the location. We dropped off our bags after a long flight from LA, cleaned up and within 10 minutes we were looking at the Spanish Steps. (Albeit from behind a wall of other tourists.) Oh and before we left the hotel, we leaned out the window to take in the street scene and were blown away to see the Collosseum right there to our left. It's nearly impossible to get away form tourists in Rome, but the Apollo is in a neighborhood, so at least you have a blend of locals and tourists in the streets.
We found it very convenient to public transportation for sights that were too far to walk to (Vatican, etc.)
Would stay again in a heartbeat. Also a pretty reasonable price for a large city. I overslept the breakfast the whole time we were there, but my partner was very happy with it. Again, you're in Rome. Have a little something at the hotel and then go out and eat your way across the city.
