My wife and I have stayed at the Nazionale 3 times and I am about to book it for a 4th. Unlike the United States, many/most of buildings in Rome are comparitively old. If you keep this in mind and enjoy the atmosphere, you will find the Nazionale a warm, traditionally Italian, convenient place to stay in the heart of old Rome. The Nationale is very close (walking distance) to many of the places you will want to visit. And, maybe best of all, the most famous and best gelato shop in Rome, Gigliotti's, is just around the corner. The following are directions you'll want to remember: When you walk out of the Nationale, go around the corner on your left and keep walking until you see Giolitti's on the left. You order at the register near the front door, then take your ticket to the gelato counter. Or, sit at an outside table and order there. However, if you order inside, don't sit at an outside table or they will run you off. In that case, just take your gelato back up the street to the hotel and sit a one of their outside benches. We did that often, enjoyed a Roman evening and watched people in the piazza.
The Pantheon, Trevi, Spanish steps, Forum and more are all close and the hotel keeps of pad of very handy maps at the front desk. Additionally, you will find the staff quite willing to help you locate a destination or call a taxi. A real treat is having lucnh or dinner at the Patheon piazza or Piazza Novona just to watch people and both are a very easy walk from the Nazionale.
If you have any concerns about security, the Nationale is the hotel for you. It is located on Piazza Montecitoria, which is also where the Parliment building is located. Your taxi will have to pass through security on the way to the hotel.
Breakfast, colazione, is enough to get your day started . . . the rest is up to you. But, if you are looking for a nice convenient place to call home while visiting Rome, you should consider the Nazionale.
