We stayed here for 6 nights. We chose this location because it was close to Termini Station, where we could catch a train in and out to the Fuimicino Airport. It was also the spot where you could get on the HOP ON HOP OFF tour buses, or grab a taxi.
Google maps gave the station as a 25 minute walk. We got lost! There was a lot of graffiti and the walk felt kind of sketchy early in the morning. Unless you have a GPS, you may want to take a cab for about ten euros. We did this daily and found most of the sights accessible with the Roma Cristiano bus pass.
The staff was kind and helpful to first time travelers to Rome. They gave us a map, answered questions, called cabs and made wake up calls. They spoke English well.
The breakfast was a nice spread of meats, cheeses, pastries, coffees, juices, etc. Our other favorite spot to eat dinner was the Ferrazza Wine Bar next door, which had a buffet and one or two special pasta offerings each night. We ate there 3 out of 6 nights and had something different each time. The prices were very reasonable.
The rooms were clean and well maintained. The bathroom was small but modern. We never ran out of hot water. It was a good home base for our daily adventures.
There weren't many TV channels, but they did have a computer and printer available for use in the lobby. Our room had two single beds. It was pretty quiet while we were there.
