We'd definitely recommend the Dei Mellini. It is situated in the quieter Vatican part of Rome, which suited us after a long day. However, it is within walking distance of most of the attractions (The Vatican, the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps, Villa Borghese, etc). We did take the 87 bus from the end of the street to the Colosseum, but this was because we were travelling with my mother, who was getting tired after 3 days of walking around Rome.
The hotel is well decorated and very clean. Our bedroom was a good size and the beds were really comfortable. As mentioned in previous reviews, the staff at the hotel are fantastic and are extremely helpful. Breakfast is limited, but very good. We would stay at the Dei Mellini again, if we returned to Rome.
We booked the tour guide, recommended by the hotel, and she made our tour of The Vatican memorable - well worth the money. It is probably worth buying a Roma Pass (at the airport), as it may save you money + time queueing.
We found a wonderful restaurant, just a short walk from the hotel in Via Lucrezio Caro called Le Cupole. It is a family run restaurant - the food is excellent and the staff very welcoming - we ended up eating there 3 times!
