This hotel is a short walk from Termini Station whether you come in from the airport by coach or train. The welcome at the hotel was warm and friendly and loads of infomation was offered with maps and relevant brochures for relevant attractions. Just ask the questions the reception staff were willing to answer and spoke good enough english to give informative answers. There is a small life (1 person/1 case), the room had a double bed but again was very small with a small but fully eqipped bathroom.
The hotel is on a traffic-busy road but don't worry there was NO noise inside the hotel - only the other guests going up and down the stairs. The breakfast was basic but certainly adequate to fill up till lunch.
The location of the hotel I found perfectly adequate for exploring Rome. I took the No40 bus to the Vatican and walked back - this took in St Peters, Castel Sant Angelo, Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Vittorio Emanuele Monument, the Colosseum and loads more delights in between. You can do all this in one day quite easily without any rush and loads of food and ice-cream in between.
Restaurants - for close to the hotel I would ask at the hotel reception - I was given a card for a place in a near by street - I introduced myself from the hotel and was looked after - the hotel clearly took the introduction seriously. There are loads of good places to eat - but beware in taking a look - like anyware there appeared to be the full range.
Overall this is a friendly clean hotel in a good location taking the price into account - I would return for a short stay.
My top tip for sleep quality would be "pillows", The pillows were extremely firm !!! which affected sleep quality , Ask for others or take your own!!!!!.
