We had this hotel booked for us by an agent and were delighted with it. We were room only but ate their excellent and varied breakfast every morning (€5). We ate out on our first night but ate in the hotel bar every other night as they served excellent food at the same price as other restaurants and we could fine at any time (Pizza Napoli and Pollo Romana were delicious and filling).
Manzoni metro station is next door (with bus and tram stops around the corner) and, with a great value 72 hour transport pass, every part of Rome is easily accessible.
The hotel staff, from reception through restaurant and bar to the staff who cleaned the rooms, always greeted us with a smile and a very pleasant "Buongiorno".
Just behind the hotel are the attractions of Scala Sancta where, if you are a believer, you can climb, on your knees, the steps that Jesus ascended to Pontius Pilate's praetorium. And while there, visit the magnificent Archbasilica of St John Lateran along the road. Or shop in the Coin department store next to Porta San Giovanni (or better still get a bargain from the market behind the store!)
However do not miss the Museo storico della Liberazione hidden in Via Tasso, just behind the hotel, for an heartbreaking yet uplifting story of the Partisan resistance in Rome during the Nazi occupation. I sang the chorus of "Bella Ciao" with the female curator who began, "Una mattina mi son svegliato" with a tearful eye. What an amazing connection. less
