Location: Location is perfect! Right next to the Colosseum, Bars, Taxi Rank, restaurants and a Supermarket round the corner. The only thing to be cautious of is that because you are next to a major tourist attraction, there are lots of people that try to sell you things around further up from the hotel but you just have to ignore them and don't talk to anyone when they approach you.
Hotel Grounds: Hotel is beautiful inside and out, extremely welcoming and will do anything to make your stay comfortable, Alex on reception was brilliant when we had issues with our flights and arriving late. The rooms are extremely modern with lovely glass bathroom ceiling and lovely and clean. The only thing you must take into account when booking is that there are 2 bars next door so you must be comfortable with there being noise outside till quite late in the night. For us it wasn't a problem but it was quite noisy.
Advice for attractions: Next to the Colosseum there is a bus stop that has The Big Bus Tour stop there every 10 minutes. It was the best thing I purchased all holiday because it shows you sights you would not normally see with headphones that tell you interesting facts the whole way. It costs $30 pp but is well worth it as it's a hop on hop off bus so you can stop and start again anywhere. There is also lots of people that try to give you "advice" around the Colosseum about how to skip the queue for getting inside the building and will keep saying that the normal queue is around 1hr30 so will give you the option to pay to skip this queue, but DONT BE FOOLED the normal line is not 1hr30 it took us about 25 minutes.
