Good things: Comfortable hotel. Great location, near metro. Good neighborhood. Great room and hotel service. Clean bathroom with a large range of samples (swab, soap, etc). Breakfast with great variety and flexible open time hours. Free wi-fi at good speed. Cable tv with great variety of channels. Locker at the room. Great shuttle service.

Bad things: Extremely thin walls that you heard all the rooms around you. We ask for an advice about a cheap restaurant and they advice us a great one, but not a cheap one. The magnetic card that allows us to enter the room had to be recharged almost every day in order to function. The heater was powerfull but reach the chosen temperature in a very slow speed.

Stayed here for 4 nights,LOCATION: Very good. Bologna Metro station is about 5 minutes walking distance. Bus No 310 gets you to Rome Central Station in about 15 minutes and the stop is 2-3 minutes walk from the hotel. Bus No 62 near the Bologna Metro station connects you to most tourist spots.

GETTING TO THE HOTEL: We landed at Roma Fiumicino Terminal-3. The cheapest and easiest way to get to city i.e. Rome Central Station is by Terravision Bus (stop is right outside the terminal and easy to locate) which if you book online through their website then it will cost only 4 Euros per person one way (if you buy at the airport I guess it costs 6 Euros and there is a short queue). Thereafter, at the Rome Central station we bought the Roma Pass for 30 Euros from the Tabac shop. From Rome Central station you can take the metro to Bologna metro station or take bus 310. By the way, there is an escalator at the Bologna station.

HOTEL: The hotel is located in a very safe & quiet area and is neat & clean. Plenty of restaurants nearby. To be fair it is close to 3.5 stars. There is free wi-fi and a computer available (free) for your use in the lobby. Through wi-fi we could stay in touch with our family using Skype/Tango/Viber/Whatsapp. The staff is very friendly and always on hand. Thanks for letting us Check-in in at 10 am.

BREAKFAST: The breakfast is pretty decent (7.00am-10.30am) breads, cereals, fruits, juices, coffees, teas, flavoured curds, cheese. Being vegetarian cannot comment much on the non-veg section. Avoid coffee from the machine and request the waitress for coffee made by her.

ROOM: We had booked a standard double, though small, was very clean, comfortable and adequate. It had a safe and mini-bar. The bathrooms are very clean and quite spacious, ours had a tub. The bedside tables were worn out at the edges and need to be repaired. The room was cleaned daily and fresh towels were provided everyday.

ROME SIGHTS: We were there for 4 nights and could easily cover all the sights. You must see most of the tourist spots by night also. You don’t need to take the HopOnHopOff (HOHO) bus (moreover HOHO buses have fixed stops at 20-30 minute intervals and stop functioning by evening - whereas if you have the Roma Pass / other travel pass, you can travel 24x7 unlimited on any mode) Rome can be best covered by foot - part by part. After breakfast, our day used to start by about 9.30 am and invariably we would be back at the hotel by 3 pm for a siesta, start again by 6 pm and reach back late at night.
VATICAN MUMSEUM You must book your tickets on line for the Vatican museums before you go to avoid queuing. It will cost 4 euros per person extra to book online, but it's worth it. Personally I suggest booking a combined guided tour for Vatican Museum + St Peters Basilica + Sistine Chapel (we had booked a guided tour through Expedia which allowed us early entry ~ about an hour before the museum opens to general public)

NIGHTLIFE:
Most of the Piazza’s are lively, entertaining and great for people watching.
Easiest way to get to Trastevere from hotel - Take bus 62 from the Bologna Metro station and get down at Argentina, from there take the tram to Trastevere (get down at the first stop after the tram crosses the river bridge) ask for Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere.
Testaccio is the place to go for clubbing with plenty of nightclubs and is filled with locals and tourists. For many, there is a cover charge on weekends. Take the metro from Bologna and get down at Piramide station, “Via di Monte Testaccio” is about 8-10 minutes walking distance from Pirmaide station.
Ostiense - Not far from Testaccio is Ostiense area where some good night clubs are located. Get down at the Garbatella metros station (next stop after Piramide station)

ROMA PASS – You can travel unlimited for 3 consecutive days on metro, tram, bus so you don’t have to worry about buying and validating tickets every now and then. A lot of Tabac shops run out of tickets on weekends.
The Colosseum (including the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill) costs about 15 euros. The Borghese gallery is the second most costly place that you can visit using the Roma Pass. We visited the Castel Sant'Angelo which was costing about 9-10 Euros. If you're going to see any 2 sites, their combined price almost covers the cost of the Roma pass and if you use the public transport even just 4 times, the pass is worthwhile. There are long queues for buying the tickets at the Colosseum, however if you have a Roma pass there is a separate queue which saves you a lot of time. At the colosseum you can hire the audio guide for about 6 Euros but again there is a queue.
Before travelling we had downloaded Rick Steve’s FREE audio guide from itunes for Colosseum and Roman Forum (do not forget to carry the printout of the sites which are also provided free by Rick Steve’s on itunes). This way, you can avoid the costly guided tours and enjoy the sites at your own pace instead of being rushed through

The hotel is far for 4 stars classification; breakfast very poor – and I saw something that socked me: the lady who cleaned the tables, after she collected the dirty plates she found some sweets (croissants and pie) uneaten and she put them back on the buffet table. The coffee is horrible for an Italian hotel. In 6 days, NEVER replaced the shampoos/ shower gel bottles and the sheets were changed only once in 6 nights. Even if WI-FI was free, never worked. Old furniture is not appropriate for a 4 stars hotel.

Room Tip: no comment

Nice location for a city trip since close to Metro. Rooms very clean and well kept. We had a nice room on the third floor with a great bathroom. You don't hear any noise from the street, but be prepared to hear your neighbors. But that's really the only negative thing about the hotel. They even arrange transfers to and from the airport which is very convenient. Also they offer a very good breakfast (especially compared to other hotels in Italy).

We arrived April 2nd and stayed until April 6th and overall a good value. The hotel is not close to the most of the tourist attractions so you may want to consider taking the 310 bus or cab to the termini station which is the main transpo hub and also where you would choose from several hop on/hop off tour buses. Upon arriving we actually walked right pass the hotel so make sure you refer to google or yahoo maps. The hotel was clean, linens were changed daily. The breakfast was decent, wifi worked fine and the terrace in the room was nice. The location is near a university & military training facility so the surroundings are fairly safe not to mention there are delicious gelato places everywhere. Just a bit of advice, if you ride the bus system in Rome, buy a ticket. They use an honor system but inspectors ride & check when you least expect to make sure all tickets are valid.

The location is nice since it's close to the metro station. However, it's not close to any tourist attraction. The room was a bit cold during the night and the air conditioner was not functioning well. The breakfast was of average quality, but the tea and coffee was very cold.
Considering the reasonable price, it was ok to stay for 3-4 nights.
