If you like experiencing a city -- experiencing Roma -- by walking, then this is a great hotel to choose. 10 minutes to walk to the Spanish Steps, 5 minutes walk to the Borghese Gardens. 5 minutes to walk to the Metro station. Many excellent restaurants within a block or two. It's hard to think of a better location for those who like to walk. And if you add in taxi, you get a cheap fare to the main train station and a cheap fare to the major tourist attractions.
The hotel itself was excellent in nearly all respects. The morning breakfast buffet was top-notch, with lots of fruit and pastry choices (there was also meat and cheese choices). The staff was very helpful; they all spoke excellent English and patiently answered our stupid tourist questions.
The only negative was the room itself. The air conditioning didn't work as well as we wanted, and the room felt stuffy. If we were going to stay longer, I would have complained and asked for someone to look at it. That said, the bed was comfy, and bathroom worked great (it was one of the roomier bathrooms we had in the 5 different hotels we stayed at on our vacation).
All in all, 4 out of 5. If the room air conditioning had worked better then it would have been an easy 5.
