Hotel Ivanhoe is located very close to ancient Rome (e.g. Coliseum) and the main train station. It is tucked away in a location away from the main traffic areas. We enjoyed walking through this community even in the early evening. We felt quite safe. Its staff are very friendly and helpful. They provide you with maps and helpful hints on accessing sites. They provide a great breakfast buffet with specialty coffees (very good indeed!) and some cook to order items included. We chose the hotel for the location, price and the advice from others that it provided a clean, basic room (so we were aware of the shower issue). Hotel Ivanhoe delivered on our expectations.
The shower is small but more interesting is that it is two tiered with a lower section of the tub under the shower head. We had just spent 12 days on a cruise so we were used to limited space in a shower. However, some people might find this two tiered system disconcerting especially if they have balance issues.
Our bed was two singles pushed together (a common approach in Europe). You could feel the springs on the edges of the mattress. Normally this would be problematic. However, I slept well during our stay. We were very busy every day and that may have allowed me to overlook this issue?
People who are looking for luxury or perhaps are in Rome for a longer period (we stayed 3 nights) may wish to look elsewhere but you will pay way more as well. For people like us who have very basic needs the Hotel Ivanhoe was ideal.
