The location is good - about 10-15 minutes walk to Termini Station or 2/3 stops on bus 90, 82 or 60L. Staff are pleasant and helpful and reception is staffed 24/7. The hotel interior is rather dingy and in need of a deep clean and décor upgrade. The rooms are small so if you are a larger than average person you may feel restricted. The linen and towels were clean but the toiletries left in the bathroom were minimal to say the least.
The so-called breakfast is not really worth bothering with and its preparation in the morning is loud enough to disturb anybody in rooms near the dining area. The day before we left, I asked the receptionist if he could book a taxi to take my wife and I to Ciampino Airport the next morning. The official white taxi rate is 30 Euros, but the receptionist wanted to charge me 55 Euros. Not impressed. We just walked round the corner to Porta Pia and found white taxis waiting for fares - at the official rate!
