The Pinewood hotel was a good selection for our needs. We decided, last minute, to stay overnight in Rome before our flight home. We wanted somewhere relatively close to the tourist attractions without paying dearly for it.
The hotel was VERY difficult for us to find. Google maps was no help at all. I would highly recommend getting a GPS in your rental car if travelling Rome. That would have definitely helped in locating the hotel. Didn't think I needed it as I've driven in Rome many times but, nope, not this time.
The hotel is located on a very busy street. It has a nice lobby which is quite airy and large. The desk attendant, Gennaro, was very helpful and quite cheerful. The room was a quad and suited our needs perfectly as we were only staying for the one night. It included free parking (with security cameras and gates) and free wifi. Breakfast was included which consisted of yummy baked goods, assorted hot beverages and scrambled eggs for us North Americans.
There's a bus stop about 50 feet from the hotel which will bring you to the Vatican or elsewhere. The Metro is also very close by but we didn't take that so can't comment,
Don't know if I'd stay again and that's only because I'm not a huge fan of Rome. Too busy for my liking. I prefer the smaller, picturesque parts of Italy.
