If you are looking for a convenient, no frills, and economical place to stay in Rome, this is the place for you. My husband and I stayed for 4 nights and we were very pleased with the location, especially for 70 euros per night in early September.
The basilica is beautiful, and the area is very quiet. The walk to the metro is about 7 minutes, or about 25 minute walk to ancient Rome. We walked early morning and late night, and always felt safe. There is a lovely cafe and bakery across the street, and some great local restaurants in the area - perfect to go to if you are looking to get away from the touristy areas.
The cold breakfast served was much better than we expected, given the price of our room, and it is included in your stay. It included cheeses and meats, fresh breads and crossiants, cakes, cereals, yoghurt, fruit, juices and coffee.
Our room was big enough to fit our needs, and very clean. The bed was a bit too hard for my liking.
The service was great at the front desk. All of the front desk employees spoke english, and were very helpful in supporting us in trying book reservations at museums. They made phone calls for us, and even gave us a free internet pass for their internet cafe to book on line. It also seemed to be one of the last places in Rome to sell the very popular Roma Pass, that was sold out on line and everywhere else we looked into prior to our trip.
Overall, we definately got our money's worth, and more than expected given the price.
