Booked this hotel through Hotwire and chose the area close to Rome's Fiomicino's Airport. Please beware that this hotel is quite far from the airport AND quite far from Rome.
The easiest way to get to this hotel is to take a taxi from the airport. The hotel doesn't offer a shuttle bus, you can negotiate a fare from the Airport to the hotel. We were a group of 6, and negotiated 10 Euros a person for the ride from the airport to the hotel.
The area around the hotel is quite deserted, a block and a half away there's a small plaza where there's a conveinence store, pizza shop, slot machines and a small restaurant. A 25 minute walk and there's a supermarket. This supermarket is quite a long walk, but it is quite a big supermarket that has everything you need.
Checking in to the hotel was a quick process, not all the check-in agents know English, so just be patient and they'll be able to help you.
There's complimentary wifi in the lobby and public areas. There's wifi and hardwired Internet available in the rooms for a fee.
The fitness centre, and gym is open until 9pm. It was strange however we got to the fitness centre at around 8:30pm, and the attendent said that there's a 5 EURO charge to use the sauna. I'm not sure if this is correct or if he just wanted to discourage me to use the sauna because there was 30 minutes left until the fitness centre is closed. I should have mentioned this during my check-out, but I was in a rush to catch my flight and didn't have time to complain about the sauna.
The room that I was in was very modern, and they also included a free bottle of sparkling water in the fridge in my room.
Plenty of channels available on tv, and the washroom was clean, quite modern and acceptable.
If I had a choice, I wouldn't stay at this hotel due to its location, it is very far from the airport, and very far from the city. To get from central Rome to the hotel you have to take the subway, then transfer to a different line and take a bus.
