Me and my wife just spent a week in Rome and stayed in Hotel Selene. We found the location ideal to explore the eternal city and some surrounding towns (we went to Frascati, Castel Gandolfo & Tivoli) since it is a short walk away from 'Termini', a train,metro and bus station. Also close by are shopping areas such as the cute Monti area and the slightly more 'mainstream' via Nazionale. Also reachable by foot, albeit further than the station, are landmarks such as the Colosseum, Spanish steps and Trevi fountain. Other lovely areas such as Piazza Navona, Campo dei Fiori and the Vatican can be easily be reached by a 10-15 mins bus ride.
As for the hotel itself, I agree with most of the points highlighted in other reviews - courteous & helpful staff, varied buffet breakfast (great way to start the day!), clean rooms & bathrooms, TV, safe and free wifi. As pointed out in at least another review, the rooms may appear to be rather drab to those of us not yet attuned to the Roman baroque style! Style apart, the common area of the building calls for some polishing up, though. Implementing other ideas floated around such as a hot water dispenser would be nice too - but all in all it was a pleasant stay and we enjoyed it a lot.
