Got back from Rome last week.
This is a nice, clean, polite hotel near the termini station. We got abit lost finding the hotel so I am going to try to give you some clear instructions now - leave the termini station through the via marsala exit. this will bring you out nearly opposite via vincenza (has a church on the corner of the street). walk almost all the way down via vincenza and via villafanca is the last street on the left.
It is also ideally situated for the metro - which you dont need to use but it does save abit of time and is a life saver after walking around the sights all day!! The local metro stop is called castro preterio and is only 2 minutes walk from the hotel. and it only costs 1 euro for a trip lasting up to 75 minutes. (same price for bus)
The hotel itself we found to be well run.
Breakfast is from 7-10am and there is a selection of hot food like bacon and scrambled egg. There was also cereal, pastries and fruit. to drink there was tea, coffee, fruit juice and water. We normally had breakfast at 730 - 8 and it was often quite busy.
I also made use of the bar for a couple of quiet drinks. Barman is very helpful and will try to accomadate you even if he doesnt quite understand your choice of drink. Be patient if there is no one behind the bar as this same person also takes the room service to the rooms and will be back at the bar in a couple of minutes.
Our room was of average size - though the bathroom was very small. Safe was included. We didnt make use of the minibar so cannot comment on the prices. We did use the tv to watch a movie though. We thought this was quite expensive at 10euros but our feet were too tired to take us anywhere!!!!
There are quite alot of restaruants along via vincenza. i would recomend one just a couple of minutes walk away. But it didnt appear to have a name! The signs outside said american breakfast. do not be put off by its look. these serve very nice food and at a very good price.
If i ever went back to Rome i would stay at hotel villafranca again
