I stayed in this hotel for three nights at the beginning of March. The hotel is lovely and rooms spacious, clean and comfortable. The lady on reception was very helpful at check in and helped us with public transport information. There is also a free shuttle bus to the town centre or vatican but I would recommend booking in advance as space is limited.
The buffet style continental breakfast was good, with plenty of choice and perfect for setting you up for a day exploring. I didn't eat in the restaurant in the evening as it was a bit outside my budget but the staff recommended other places nearby which were fine.
The hotel is out of the centre but close to a bus station and metro, and of course there is the free shuttle bus. We had a Roma Pass so it was easy to use the bus and metro but if you buy tickets on a day by day basis you need to validate them by putting them in the yellow boxes on the buses. There is also a small supermarket near the bus stop, just a couple of minutes walk from the hotel.
The only problem we had was finding it after arriving at the main train station in Rome. This wasn't a fault with the hotel but the man on the tourist information desk at the train station could have been a bit more helpful! I would recommend researching transport options and printing your own maps of the area before arriving rather than relying on the tourist information staff. You will need a ticket before boarding the bus as you can't buy on board. Once we spoke to the receptionist at the hotel though we didn't have a problem with public transport and found it easy to get around - the tourist information staff could learn a lot from her!
Overall it is a very comfortable and welcoming base for exploring Rome and I would stay here again.
