My review is based on a two night stay here in March 2013.
At €55 per night for a double room this was excellent value for money by the standards of central Rome. The hotel is small (9 rooms) set in a quiet side street about 15 minutes walk from the bus/rail station at Stazione Termini and about an average 30 minute walk from the main city centre visitor attractions. It is located in a quiet side street, the Via Bixio.
The room was on the small side, but clean and well maintained. It had TV and a somewhat shaky wi-fi connection. The place is family managed and the individuals concerned do not speak English, French or German. That said, they are entirely accustomed to communicating with foreigners and will readily engage with you using Google Translate on your i-Pad, or using sign language. I never felt uncomfortable over communication issues.
The breakfast offered in the communal room was basic. Cheese, cold meat and bread with either tea or coffee. But it was fine and perfectly normal by local standards. They don't do an evening meal but the area is heavily populated with cafes, restaurants and supermarkets.
The area has some social issues and the hotel management are security conscious. They will not allow you to take your room key out with you and the front door is kept permanently locked. One of the managers is permanently on duty at the reception desk and you have to ring the doorbell to obtain entrance.
Possibly not the best place for a romantic weekend - but fine for all other purposes. I will certainly stay here again if opportunity arises.
