This hotel has a lot going for it. Others have complained about the location, but we were happy enough since it is only 5 minutes/7 Euros in a taxi from Rome Central Station, and we walked to most locations - 20 minutes to the station, 40 minutes to the Spanish Steps; on the other hand there's a metro stop round the corner and you can speed to the Coliseum in 10 minutes. Reception staff are most helpful with transport advice, restaurant bookings etc.
Certainly there are other more central hotels, but Villa Morgagni is blissfully quiet, situated down an attractive lane, back from the main road. Our king room was a good size, and beautifully furnished with a brightly tiled bathroom. Breakfast suited us fine, with fruit, a choice of cereals, plenty of bread and pastries, cheese and even scrambled egg, all washed down with the usual excellent Italian coffee. The breakfast room is well located on the top floor, with a super view over the rooftops. We got a good deal through priceline, but from other reviews I gather that normal room rates are reasonable by Rome standards.
So why only 4 out of 5? For a start, plumbing was not all it should be with a delayed flush for the WC and a jacuzzi bath which produced interesting underwater coloured lighting effects but no water jets, and took forever to fill. More serious was the wifi, which worked reasonably well in the morning but slowed to a standstill late in the evening. Being charged 1 Euro per hour for this is unacceptable when our Venice hotel provided 13mbs/sec free of charge. This did not spoil our time in the hotel but would be a major consideration for business travellers.
