We stayed at this hotel from 4/9/12-4/13/12. The room was very clean, comfortable, and well decorated though not very spacious, as expected. The staffs are friendly and helpful. The breakfast is a good start with a choice of cafe Americano, Espressos, or cappuccinos. It's a full breakfast in a nice dinning room setting to get your day started. The hotel is located 2 long blocks from the termini so taxi is not required, and it's about 15 minutes walk to Ponte Vecchio. A liitle away from the main scenes but can be a bonus at times. The neighborhood at night is a different story. There seems to be quite a bite of squanderers in the area after 8 but we didn't feel threaten by them though it might not feel comforting strolling around after dinner. I would recommend this hotel for anyone who don't mind doing a bit of walking. And if you decide to stay here, you can eat at Ristorante Cento Poveri along via Spada, less than 10 minutes walk from the hotel. They have the best food hands down. I'm still dreaming about their food now that we're back in Rome.
