We stayed in this hotel three nights during our Easter vacation. It was one of the rather cheaper hotels in the city center and now we know why.
The good things - definitely the location (3 minutes walk from Navona square; 10 minutes walk from San Pietro square in Vatican) and the staff (very friendly and helpful).
The bad things - the hotel is located in a cellar (last time I saw a person living in such conditions was my modest grandmother) with not much light. The windows are oriented to a busy street and although the walls are full of wallpapers (made of cloth), we could still hear the driving cars.
Also, the food (breakfast only) was not one of the best in my life; instant coffee, instant juice, toasts with ham and cheese, packaged croissants... nothing of it fresh. Tea was fine (made from tea bags). I don't consider to be a demanding person but in a hotel (double bed room for 150 Euros a night), in the center of an Italian capital! where the Italian delicious food is everywhere, I would expect something more appetizing.
Apart from one day when there was no hot water (boiler got broken), our staying was rather flawless; the staff explained us (in bad English and somewhat better Russian) where to go, where to eat, how to get on the bus, etc.
