We stayed for 2 nights at the Muse and our 1st stay in Rome. Took the terravision bus from Ciampino airport to Rome (even bought the return ticket while queuing to board in Liverpool airport!) which was direct & easy. Got the bus (306?) from the Terminale to piazza delle muse (the last stop & takes approx 20 mins) - make sure you wait at the right stop as this bus goes in 2 directions - one to Zama & one to Muse! ( The sign at the stop has an arrow on it showing which direction it's going). Passed the hotel on the bus & a very short walk back to it in a quiet, leafy area. Great welcome at reception & were also given a sheet with lots of helpful hints about getting into Rome ( can get a bus back from piazza delle muse or from Piazza Hungaria - 10 min walk, straight to Colosseum or Trastevere; or about the same walk to the train for 2 stops into the centre of the city, only 1 metro stop away from the Spanish steps etc!) and they also gave us a really detailed map of the city, including the area around the hotel, which was much easier to use than either of the ones from our guide books! If you're going to hop on & off the metro, trains &/bus a few times a day, then it's definitely worth getting a day travelcard (from any tabacchi) for only 4 euros!
Breakfast was great - loads of choice with all kinds of croissants, Danish pastries, biscotti, cereals, bacon & scrambled egg, boil your own eggs, toast, continental style stuff & yoghurts, fresh fruit......!
One handy hint - if your room has metal shutters - look for a switch on the wall which raises them electronically (we were trying to lift them for a while before we realised!) Our room overlooked the garden where breakfast is served later in the season & it looked like this would be lovely!
Wi-fi in the rooms & could also use the computers/printers in reception if you liked.
Room was clean & a nice, roomy bathroom with shower & bidet.
I would definitely recommend staying at the Muse - it was lovely to stay a little outside of the city (& would certainly pay a lot more for this kind of hotel in the centre) but transport links were good & could get around easily.
Rome itself was absolutely beautiful - so much to see/do!
