We took the train of FR2 from the Rome airport (FCO) to La Rustica for $8.00 per person ( Leonardo Express is $12 to Termini only). We checked Google Earth and it appeared that people can go through an industrial office building to access the hotel, however it is not accessible through the building complex. Therefore the only way to access the hotel will be a narrow road which you have to watch out for traffic.
The hotel is in the La Rustica area which is very close to the Train Station -La Rustica U.I.R. however it is not accessible directly from the train station.Also, there is no grocery or convenient store around.
The food menu is pretty standard but the breakfast is worth trying. Clean room, quiet location, friendly staff.
The biggest bonus of this hotel is that they offer $6.00 round trip shuttle from /to Rome Termini every day until 8:30 pm. However if you are arriving from the airport you should confirm with the hotel for pick up/drop off location and schedule first.
The Metro station "La Rustica" is currently under construction which should start the service in 2012.
