Stayed there for a long weekend with the Missus. Snow everywhere and Hotel was on a hill, far from ideal. Booked and paid for a room with bathroom and double bed. Double bed was 2 beds pushed together and a damaged mattress on one of the beds. TV in the room is all Italian channels bar a few music channels which play some English music in the evening.
Heating did not work, or we could not work it, put it on to 30degrees but it kept resetting itself to 22 degrees. Shower head was not attached properly to the clip meaning that every time we turned shower on full blast it kicked back and sprayed everywhere.
To be honest once we unpacked and spent the first night there I could not be bothered to say anything for the sake of 2 nights sleep so we stayed in that room. The room was comfy and was room number 102, the first in the hotel so good location.
Breakfast was Ham, spreadable cheese and roll (a DIY job) pastries and 3 types of cereal. All though a bit bland, the pastries and bread rolls were amazing! And it seems like a cold breakfast is the done thing in Rome.
The hotel is on the outskirts of city centre, 2 minute walk from Termini tube station. 5 minute walk down to the Forum and further 2 minutes to Colosseum one way and 2 minutes away from Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II the other way, about 20 minute walk to Trevi fountain where there are quite a few restaurants. Very little in the form of bars in Rome that are open in Feb.
do not be scared to walk everywhere you see so much and it is all really close to each other (Vatican aside) we walked to the Castel Saint Angelo (accidentally) and only took about 40 minutes to walk back, but on the walk back you can see some great sights as well.
Everyone in the Hotel speaks excellent English and they will help you with directions and little tips.
Not that I have any bad memories of the place, it was nice enough and friendly but I would not go there again unless the price was drastically cheaper, can't see how they can charge the same as hotels in the city centre.
