The hotel is super close to re di Roma metro which takes you easily to the center of Rome. I'm a slow walker and it takes me 5 minutes at a stroll. Nice, modern hotel with decent sized rooms - a bit larger than other euro hotels. Staff were incredibly friendly and cheery.
The only con is that because the rooms have hard wood floors- you hear everything around you! So if the noise of moving chairs and tables and heels from shoes bothers you, then this will be a problem for you at this hotel. I prefer hard wood over carpet but it comes at a cost in this case. Outside street noise isn't too bad because it's not a heavily trafficked street. overall hotel deserves a 4. I can't give it a 5 because of the noise in the room.
Good location withing walking distance of the Colosseum and just across the road from the a Metro Station. Breakfast was included in the room rate. The breakfast included a good selection of very low quality food. However it was possible to find something acceptable to eat, hence avoiding the cost of buying breakfast elsewhere.
There was also a great family operated restaurant near the hotel that served great food at a good price.

This is a flat, with kitchen. That is all me and my husband desired after travelling for a long time. We needed to cook our food.The neighbourhood has 3 supermarkets, a daily street market, tube station very close and the place is sunny and not noisy. Clean, practical, first floor. We spent a week. If I won the place would make it a gourmand flat.
We enjoyed our stay and the room was clean and functional, but you should know that this is NOT a traditional hotel. It is a series of apartments in various buildings in the Giovanni district in Rome. This is not made clear on their website, and was explained to us only when we arrived to check in!
This makes for a unique experience, like you are living in an apartment in Rome, because you basically are doing just that! But if you want a hotel with a concierge, a computer, a decent TV, a shower bigger than a shoebox and a room larger than a small studio apartment...then this is not the hotel for you. We got a great deal for this hotel on Expedia and now I know why. It wasn't necessarily a *bad* experience, but it did make for a bit of unneeded stress and work. For example, we were given four keys for each of the doors we had to go through to get into the building and finally into our room. The elevator was one of those ancient lifts you see in movies where it's in a cage and you have to shut the doors yourself before it will go up. And it was so tiny it could barely fit two people and their luggage! The staff are nice, but I communicated with them via email and text because there was no hotel lobby where they were available to speak with in person.
On the plus side, the Terraze apartments are in a nice location close to Metro stations (Manzoni and Giovanni stations are short walking distance) and within walking distance of the Colloseum.
The centrally located San Giovanni neighborhood is named after the stunning Archbasilica of San Giovanni in Laterano, the official ecclesiastical seat of the Pope. Near Porta Maggiore, one of the gateways of the Aurelian Walls, the area is full of shopping, such as on Via Appia Nuova and in Piazza Re di Roma. Every year, this area hosts the popular 1st of May concert.
