I recently stayed here while on a trip to Rome and the hotel was fantastic. The rooms were large and totally spotless, with working aircon and comfortable beds. En suites were spacious and clean and we had a private courtyard outside our room with a seating area. The staff were very friendly and extremly helpful at all times - on one of the days there was a public transoprt strike but they were able to arrange taxis for the guests very quickly. (They all also speak very good English which is useful if your Italian is lacking).
I was worried that the free buffet breakfast would run out or not be up to scratch, but every morning there was a wide range of food available, from scrambled eggs and bacon to breads, cheese, cold meats, yoghurts, coffee, juice and fresh pastries. You have the option of ordering a 'full breakfast' for a small cost but unless you want to eat after 9.30am when the buffet closes the buffet is substantial enough.
The hotel itself was also very well located. Despite being on a main road there was barely any noise from the traffic and it's only 2mins from the Cornelia metro stop which takes you straight into Rome with stops near the Vatican, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain and Coliseum (you can get a return journey for 3 euros or a day ticket for just 7 euros). There is a large supermarket in the shopping area just opposite the hotel and a mini market next to the hotel which is great for picking up bottles of cold water. If you want to eat locally we found the restaurants to be much cheaper and nicer than those in the city centre, Gusto Sando and Il Tramburello were both excellent although Joseph's and Sora Pia were also good - all are just a few mintues walk from the hotel.
All in all it was a fantastic stay. I'd 100% recommend it to anyone visiting Rome and wouldn't hesistate to stay there again if I'm lucky enough to return to the area.
