I picked this hotel simply based on the price and location. I wasn't expecting something so nice. The location was not only near the airport, but also an easy bus ride to the local trains. I was able to get to the Colossem in an hour via local transit for only six euros...round trip!
The hotel, itself, was an absolute delight. It's a beautiful property, the pool area is paradise, and the room was spacious, comfortable, clean, and had all of the amenities. The staff at the front desk was extremely helpful and pleasant, as well as the lobby attendants (bellhops). I arrived on a city bus because I had missed the shuttle, and was standing out on the corner confused at where the entrance was. One of the lobby attendants, named Mario, was outside and saw me. He ran to meet me and to help me with my luggage. He was a lifesaver!
All in all, I love this hotel. Unlike other airport hotels (some of which are in the middle of nowhere), this hotel was located in easy reach of shopping and dining areas of the community. And, it was the best-priced of other airport hotels. My one regret is that I didn't try the hotel restaurant. The restaurant/lounge is beautifully decorated, has a very friendly staff and a tempting menu. But, I was at the hotel for only one night and accidentally fell asleep very early. So, I missed out on dinner. Fortunately, I had visited the restaurant soon after check-in, just to look over the menu. So, I at least got to see the beautiful decor.

This modern hotel was opened in April 2000 just 3km from the airport. All 60 rooms have a full bathroom with hair drayer …More
I was warned about the taxis overcharging at the airport but with big queues for the buses and a public workers strike going on there was not much option. It cost about 60 euros from the airport to the hotel. Once there, the staff were fantastic. Very happy and very helpful. They suggested where to go and how to get there, writing it all on a map. We we given a room on two floors and with a balcony so were impressed with that. To make it even better the sun was out (despite being November and the BBC web site forecasting rain). Get yourself a Roma Pass in advance and pick it up at the airport. That gives you free travel on the buses and trams (which go to all the main places you want to see) and free entry to two/three attractions. Use it at the Colosseum to avoid an hour long queue! If I was picky the only downside were the numerous constructions sites and regeneration of attractions going on. The Trevi fountain for example is drained and scaffolding all around it. It is a great city to visit but then is let down by charging a visitor tax on leaving the hotel of 4 euros per person per night.
My Boyfriend and I (20 years old) stayed in this hotel at the end of May for 4 nights. We booked an en-suite room however when we turned up at the hotel, we we're told the en-suite had been double booked for one night. This was not at all a problem, we we're moved to a room with a shared bathroom and the next morning moved to the room we originally booked. The two rooms we stayed in were clean, and just like in the pictures, had a wonderful view.
The bed and breakfast was literally a 2 minute walk from the metro, which we used quite often. It was also about a 10 minute walk to the colosseum. The area seems very safe although we generally didn't spend much time there.
The host and cleaner were lovely and very helpful. Would defiantly recomend staying in this b&b, it had everything we needed for a short break and was a great base to explore Rome.
