Stayed here for a long weekend in Rome and really enjoyed it. The location is pretty great, as you're just steps from the Colosseum, easy walk to the metro/bus/tram and around the corner from a grocery. There are two gay bars to the left and right of the hotel as well (they're more stop and drink than clubby though, head's up). Check-in was easy and the staff was friendly throughout. The rooms were comfortable and decently sized (though as a taller guy, it was a task getting into the shower). I -think- breakfast is included in all the bookings. It's functional, but nothing to write home about ;)
If you're short on time and are being a mega tourist, I'd stay closer to the center (just easier to get around if you're near Termini). Other than that, would really recommend it!
Pros: Great location by the Colosseum, metro and bus connection; Nice staff; Decent room size; breakfast is included (but it's not -that- great); if you're on the courtyard side, it's pretty quiet. I can imagine street side rooms being a bit noisier on weekends.
Cons: You only get two coffee pods :( ; Breakfast is included, but omelettes aren't, ignore the "order whatever you want" advice from the Coming Out staff when you tell them you've got the free breakfast haha; For some reason, you can't turn off the movement sensor on the bathroom light/fan. You can't get near the door without it cutting on :S
